I just bought the Samsung Brightside and absolutely love it! I had the LG Octane which I also loved but recently had a run in with water. Before the Octane I had the LG env3.(which I did not like due to the constant shutdowns...so frustrating but still felt better than the Intensity or the Cosmos phones to me) Needless to say, I'm not a "smartphone" user. I have a Kindle Fire which I "play" with. What this phone allows me to do is navigate easily with the touch screen to get to contacts, calls, texting and pictures more quickly and easily. The larger "smartphoneish" screen is sweet. So if your looking for an upgrade from your call and text only phone and not looking for internet and downloading bells and whistles just an easy to use calling, texting, picture taking device, this is perfect!
Anonymous, 20 Apr 2012Interesting Phone. "Actually, U" stands for what!? Universe?I guess, untouchable!
People - do your homework! Brightside is not a " smartphone", and Samsung never claimed it to be one.
Bought a Samsung Brightside and at first T9 shortcuts were no problem and then the phone would freeze and restart rendering that shortcut incapable. Are you experiencing this across the board with U380 or an isolated incident. What should my son do? It's within the 14 days that Verizon allows you to return the phone.
Bought it yesterday taking it back tomorrow. Nice little phone but too many compromises: Can download only from app store: Have to be in browser to access links in email as email app won't let you: Hardly any Opera customization: Touchscreen has to be pressed repeatedly when temps sub-40 degrees: No timer: Webpage reloads anytime screen orientation changes: 2 Demo games. Not a phone I'd recommend.
hope to see in the future SAMSUNG will release a “DUAL SIM phone” like “Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE” with extra large display, Qualcomm MSM8660 snapdragon, dual-core 1.5 GHz scorpion and with more cool & better features. because now all the DUAL SIM phone lines that they are releasing has so much small display and other features are very low compare to phones like “Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE”
