Samsung Convoy SCH-u640 (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Samsung Convoy's poor call quality keeps it running behind Verizon's other rugged phones.

Great camera. Good music performance. Long battery life.

Below-average call quality. Not actually rugged. Poor Web browser. ; Watch the Samsung Convoy!

Camera and Conclusions The Convoy's 2-megapixel camera is the phone's best feature. It took very good photos, although it lacks a flash. With decent light, photos were detailed and only a tad grainy. Indoor photos with good lighting turned out colorful...

Samsung Convoy SCH-U640 (Verizon Wireless) review:

 

Hot on the rugged heels of the Motorola Barrage comes an equally durable phone for Verizon Wireless called the Samsung Convoy. Similar in form and function to AT&T's Samsung Rugby , the Convoy is built to withstand the elements while offering 3G, a...

The Samsung Convoy has a durable, easy-to-use design and a respectable feature set. Call and photo quality were excellent.

The Samsung Convoy has a 2.5mm headset port and a proprietary charger jack. 3G performance was a bit slow.

Despite a couple of design complaints and a missing feature, the Samsung Convoy is an easy-to-use phone with great performance.

Samsung Convoy 4 offered by Verizon Wireless

 

We're living in an age of smartphones where the form factor is sleek and slim, not to mention being able to be operated by a single hand (for the smaller sized ones, of course). The thing is, how many of us are that careful with our smartphones in such...

First of all, the Samsung Convoy 4 takes a very different form factor from what we are used to, as it comes in the form of a flip phone that is something that we do not see very much of these days. Despite the flip phone form factor, it is far from...

Push-to-talk phone is rugged but not waterproof

 

"Stepped on by 1500 pound horse; Still works," says a Samsung Convoy owner. Yet in a smackdown against the Casio G'zONe Rock (*Est. $100 with contract) and the Motorola Barrage (Free with contract), critics find that the Samsung Convoy isn't...

Meets military specs for ruggedness, roomy keypad, decent 2-megapixel camera, long battery life

Not waterproof, hypersensitive external buttons, wimpy web browser, limited calendar features

Samsung Convoy SCH-U640 for Verizon Wireless

 

Are you a klutz? A mountain man? Do you need a phone that can handle a lot of abuse? If so, the Samsung Convoy SCH-U640 might be up your alley. The Convoy is designed to meet military specifications for durability. But it's more than just a sturdy phone.

The Convoy also has Push-to-talk capabilities that let you instantly connect to others with the service that functions similar to walkie-talkies. The PTT service costs $5 per month, but is well worth it if you have a lot of friends on the network. You...

"A good sounding but mediocre phone beset with problems."

 

Samsung should have dispensed with some of the nonsense features. Given the circumstances above, I doubt that most of these silly enhancements even work. Samsung, and Verizon, ought to have given their customers a durable basic phone. They seem to want...

The voice quality and signal strength appear to be excellent, the keypad is easy to use and the fonts are not all difficult to read. But this might be faint praise.

It takes up to 5 seconds for the screen and background to appear after one has opened the flip. The calender icon goes away only after one removes the battery. The alarm does not work and the keypad backlight functions only occasionally. Garbage!

"Not a good phone to carry in you're pocket."

 

I regret my choice of phone

Acceptable call quality

My screen broke in my front pocket without a noticeable impact and the external keys never stay locked which kills the battery very quickly if it goes unnoticed.

Samsung Convoy

 

We have two of these. One of them (my wife's) seems to work perfectly. The other (mine) has problems; the battery goes dead overnight, without use, and it comes on repeatedly with the message, "out of area" "verizon wireless", or some other unexplained...

Samsung Convoy

 

I love this phone. It is the closest design to my old phone which I hated to give up. It is easy to text, the battery life is extremely good and I get service in my home better than I used to being that we live in a valley with crummy service. The only...

Samsung Convoy

 

Nice phone, just a little to thick. You can feel it in your pocket. Battery life is the best of any phone I have ever had.
