I truly dislike the all touch screen hot plate size smart phones, and would like a decent flip phone, light weight and compact, a phone that is comfortable in my pocket and not a brick!

This looks good, but kind of big. Make it smaller and it's a winner! I would buy Samsung

Can't wait to get this phone. I've been waiting for a flip phone for ages. I can't use those touch screen and have no need for it. I just want a simple phone and simply prefer flip phone. I miss my N90.

To all who think flip phones are a thing of the past. Anyone who went straight from the Razr (or however it's spelled) or blackberry (*shudder*) to the iPhone doesn't know the first thing about how awesome flip phones really are. Face it, the cell phone technology in the the U.S. is a joke. Talking into an LG-blah-blah-blah is like talking into a brick. Please people, stop drinking the Apple coolaid and bring in some of those new Casio flip phones with the Exilim lenses and 8 to 14 MP cameras. I weep every time I look at my piece-of-crap iPhone and remember how I can't use my badass Japanese flip phones on the American "grid." It's a tragedy.

There's no way that this flip phone will be any success here, I honestly can't see why people would go back to this crap phones. It takes forever to do things on the screen if you must use buttons, touch screen is the best option hands down and will remain that way until they comes up with something else

A horizontal flip or slide phone with a keypad would be better though, I agree.

Still, I'd take a number pad / T9 over touchscreen input any day.

Why vertical? Seems a waste with qwerty touchscreens... I wouldve gone for a horizontal flip design, but maybe dual screen with optional touch keypad or an almost square design which would fold into tablet size dimensions...

You can easily see the future here... the future is back to flip phones with big outer screen for reading texts/emails/notifications and open up to read details with a bigger screen (possbility 2) or with a keyboard. This has to be the future of phones. It's always back and forth between flip and bar phones.

It is great Samsung is bringing back with a numeric keypad. But frankly this one is pretty ugly
