Samsung Convoy 2 (Verizon Wireless)

 

Thick, durable, and up to speed on military specification for dust, humidity, temperature, altitude, and a host of other elements, the Samsung Convoy 2 flip phone for Verizon updates the design of its predecessor, the original Samsung Convoy. While...

The Samsung Convoy 2 has a sturdy design, push-to-talk capability, a flashlight, and a built-in music player

The phone doesn't seem as durable as it could be, and both the call quality and camera quality need work. It's disappointing that the Convoy 2 still has a 2.5mm headset jack

Certified to withstand the elements, the Samsung Convoy 2 is also a ruggedly attractive handset with a fair number of creature comforts; however, the headset jack is a disappointment and there are more rough-and-tumble phones out there.

Samsung Convoy 2 SCH-U660 (Verizon Wireless)

 

The external color display measures 1.3 inches and offers 128-by-128-pixel resolution, which is a cut above low-end devices. Better yet, you can do all sorts of things from the front display, including snapping photos and issuing voice commands. The...

Great voice quality. Very loud speakerphone. Sharp, useful pair of displays. Good camera

No 3G. Not quite as rugged as the competition. Useless camcorder

The Samsung Convoy 2 is a significant improvement over its predecessor, and now a solid contender for a work-minded flip phone with push-to-talk capability on Verizon.

"Great flip phone"

 

Overall I'm very satisfied with this phone. It is much better than my previous Samsung Intensity. I did not buy this phone because of it's ruggedness, but it's a nice plus since I tend to be a bit rough with my phones. I've already dropped the phone...

he call quality is excellent and the phone has a great feel for typing. The phone is well built and feel very sturdy. The battery is commendable as well with 4-5 days of uptime with moderate calling and texting usage.

As mentioned by other users, this phone will have a tendency to "butt text" when you have it in your pocket because of the front facing keys. It's happened to me several times hence the docking of one star in the review.

"This phone is garbage."

 

Do not get this phone. I've never had issues with a phone the way I have them with this. And when I call Verizon I get a "it sucks to be you" attitude (they are more professional in their speech, but thats the way I feel).

There are none.

Does not send picture messages, tho its supposed to.

"Last of a dying breed of simple rugged flip phones"

 

In an era of Android powered touch screen phones that require a data plan, it's getting harder and harder to find a simple flip phone that does music decently.

Very loud ringer

Low volume on handset

Consumer review by:

"Solid, practical, accessible dependable, simple."

 

Before this phone I had a 300$ casio g'zone. The salesman said it was 'indestructible', its flimsy screen was loosening slightly at the hinge from normal use after a week, so traded it in on this cheaper convoy 2 SCH-U660. Previous to that I had the...

Super bright flashlight for a phone, A+

Glitch on the red PTT button feature, if phone is flipped closed while this button is hit sometimes verizon bootup screen comes. Change this to a different shortcut, problem solved

Consumer review by:

"Pretty good. Has some bugs and lacks some features."

 

I have had the phone for two weeks. My previous was also a Samsung regular phone but with a different carrier. I have been using all features and researching obscure ones online, too. Here are my comments: Incredibly bright screens inside and out for...

- Good reception

- The directional button could have used more space.

"Reminds me a lot of my LG 8360 but larger and buggier."

 

Was $30 on a 3 day special so I bought it to compare it with LG phones. First unit I got, the display was bad and I was told I had to have dropped it for the blue line thru the display to appear (technically very untrue). It also had software problems...

Button size, phone size, clear display, flashlight, nice camera, speakerphone is quite clear.

Software for Media Center does not work correctly and VZW can't fix it. Same pretty average VZW menu with little improvement from past basic phones. Limited customizing of Shortcut keys. Very average owner's manual. Samsung very weak on standing behin

"Non standard headphone jack, sub-standard display"

 

All in all, I like the features of this phone...the voice quality is good, the features are good..for a flip phone. Good basic phone..takes good pictures too.

Feels solid, good voice quality.

The display is old school, has a very narrow field of view...they must have got a really good discount to be using this display on a newly released phone..these days.

"SAMSUNG DONT WARRANTY THEIR OWN DEFECTS,BLAME Customer"

 

Find a Better Phone, more quality more user friendly and wont haggle over defective manufacturing and blaming customers for their defective devices. use Moto, Htc, Sony Erricson,Apple etc; be wise.

They have attractive phones for false advertisement or defrauding customers

Garbage Phones, and Garbage Company.
