This phone is so Beautiful for me it is pratical
Good idea but terrible design. The touch screen is always changing form screen to screen with out touching anthing. The phone is such a pain to deal with. Selecting names form the address book is miserable to deal with. DON'T BUY.
I bought my Samsung Glyde several months ago. I previously had a Palm One Treo (much like a Blackberry) so I wanted a phone that had a Qwerty (sp) keyboard and somewhat of a touch screen but not soley a touchscreen as I am aware that they can easily become faulty. From the very beginning the touchscreen has been a pain in the rear. When I don't want it to be touchy, it makes calls just by simply having it in my hand. And when the phone rings and I am trying to answer it, I nearly miss calls trying to get the 'answer' on the touchscreen pad to enter. If I had the money to buy a new phone without a contract I would.

There is practically nothing that works with this phone. This is by far the worst phone i have owned, used, touched or even seen. My messages more often than not remain marked as unread after i read them. This is very very annoying as it them becomes more difficult to see when i have a new message. Sure it Glydes in the sence that it opens up to an awesome qwerty keyboard which don't get me wrong, i love. However, a qwerty keyboard is neither unique to this phone nor enough to carry it through its long list of flaws: poor touch screen hard to dial Easily scratched locking the screen is worthless Countless software issues phone shuts off when sending txts A pain in the butt to hang up the phone (yeah....) But enough with the negatives, What about the positives you ask. QWERTY Keyboard like mentioned before is great, can play MP3s even tho that software is a joke, Verizon has the second best coverage in America, and...well thats all i can think of. Can't wait till my contract is up. Here i come iPhone!!
I recently purchased the samsung glyde with my new verizon wireless cell phone plan. I was first drawn into this product by its (at the time) new "touch screen" technology in addition to the full QWERTY keypad. At first I was attracted to this phone for its many smart-phone-like attributes. For starters, this phone comes GPS enabled as well as internet (full internet i migiht add) and mobile email computability. While these may sound great, verizon requires a data plan to fully utlize these functions, which at the time I was not willing to do. The ascetics of the phone are good for a phone of its size. The Glyde fits in the palm of your hand and is no more than 4 inches long and 2 inches wide. This small, easy to store phone was great in the past but now with touch screen technology, a small phone like this left me pressing the wrong buttons at the wrong times. A bit glitchy at times, this phone overall is decent. Though i would recommend, if you are buying this phone for its smart phone, or touch screen capability's...There are simply better options on the market, especially for an adult, this phone is and should be marketed towards teenagers,
I absolutely love my Samsung Glyde. I had the original version, which wasn't the greatest. I had major issues with the touch screen, and many aspects of the phone were not working properly. However, I got it replaced with the brand new version, and I have not had a single problem since! The touch screen used to be only heat sensitive, but the newer version can now be used with a stylus! The QWERTY keyboard as well as predictive WORD on the touch screen makes for easy texting. The phone also includes a great speaker phone that can be used when the phone is slid open or when it is closed. It provides great clarity from both sides of the conversation. A good friend of my was recently looking to purchase a new phone from Verizon but had no idea what good products are out there. She had always heard me talking about how much I love my phone, so she decided to get herself a Samsung Glyde too! I would recommend this phone for anyone. It won't let you down!

I was very excited to purchase this phone. I had waited a while and looked at many options before deciding to go with this one. The sliding keyboard is great! Love the qwerty keyboard. The phone is bigger then most, so I would think the keyboard could have been bigger. My biggest complaint is that the phone locks so quickly! I can never do anything without having to unlock it 2 or 3 times. It gets really annoying when you are trying to do two things at once. I also was a bit disappointed with the sound selection. I ended up buying a ring-tone, and then settling on sounds for texts and voice-mail. But there wasn't one selection that I liked. You would think with the technology this phone offers, that it would have some cool sound clips that come with it. Also, the battery life stinks! I have to charge it ever single night or is dead by mid-day the day following. It will go about 32 hours or so, and that's with not a ton of talking. I even have it on settings to help preserve battery life. My old phone, an LG, could go a good three days without needing to be plugged in. Overall I like it, but I find myself wishing I had just gone with a nice flip phone instead of wanting the qwerty keyboard.
The Samsung Glyde is a touch screen glyding phone for Verizon Wireless. This was actually the first Verizon Wireless phone I ever owned, and was very dissapointed in it. I had gone through about 13 of this phone before Verizon finally gave me a free upgrtade. Some of the issues I had: The Touch screen was VERY unresponsive, the phone fell apart, the keys stuck, random shut downs, sound not working, constant vibrate, home button not working, ect. Although the phone was pretty bad overall, there were a few pluses to it. The phone had a candy shop look to it. It was small, sleek, and shiney! The phone was overall very attractive as far as looks go. The size was also a pro. It was small enough to just carry in your pocket. The slide out keyboard was also very good. It some getting used to, however once used to it the keyboard was fairly comfortable to use, and made texting a breeze. Overall I really can't recommend this phone as I've had multiple problems, and was overall cheap!
This phone is okay, but my husband got an iPhone and it is 100% cooler, easier to use, more entertaining, etc. He said it wasn't too much more. Just get an iPhone. I like the keyboard. I can imagine that if you have big fingers it would be too small to use, but for my small fingers it works just great. The lock feature doesn't always work and I find that if I put it in my purse too soon after using it that other stuff touching it somethimes does weird things: creating alarms I don't want, taking tons of pictures, etc. But overall, the most aggrevating thing about this phone is that it has icons randomly show up on your homescreen that JUST WON'T LEAVE. Seriously. I've had this "events" icon come and go randomly several times since I got it and no searching online can tell me how in the world to get rid of it for good. Recently, an alarms icon showed up for no reason and won't go away. It drives me crazy.
I got this phone a couple of years ago. Samsung had come out with a new slide phone and I got the Glyde for cheap as it was going off the market of new phones. The Glyde is relatively small and has a touch screen main and slides open for a full keyboard. The problem is the touch screen. While I'm at least grateful it works well with a stylus or any small object, the screen has gotten TERRIBLE. It's off and you have to touch it slightly away from the point you actually want to touch for it to recognize the option you are aiming for. It didn't start this way, but over the last 6 months or so it's become this way. Although thankfully most functions can be accessed using the keyboard! The phone itself isn't bad. Clear calls for the most part, easy to use. It doesn't do anything special, and I would def suggest a newer smart phone for any real functionality. This phone will access the internet, but it's slow and isn't worth the effort.
