User Review Of The Samsung Juke For Verizon

Oct 19, 2007
The design of the Samsung Juke was done very well, the model sports a very unique hinge that swivels and slides. The model is quite pleasing aesthetically so there should be a market for it. The model is currently being offered in navy, red, and teal so there should be a version that almost everyone likes. The Juke is amazingly thin and tall and the super model-like design will surely attract users.

People have been crowning the model as the iPhone killer for quite some time, but to tell the truth the phone doesn't have anywhere near that much power. The Juke is a music phone, however it doesn't have the organizer or web browsing capabilities of the iPhone, in fact the Juke doesn't browse the web at all.

The model does quite well in the music department, supporting mP3, WMA, and AAC formats. We found it pretty straightforward to ass music to the model. Getting the music on the Juke shouldn't really be a problem for anyone.

Samsung says that the model is being shipped with 2GB of internal memory, however a significant portion of that memory is already being used by the phone itself. Those who really want to listen to a lot of music will definitely have to purchase a memory card because the actual storage is quite limited.

The camera on the Juke is VGA quality. In other words, don't plan on taking any good shots with it. The shots we took were pixelated and fuzzy. There were also some funky colors that seems to be added to the images. Overall, we were quite disappointed with the camera on the model, but it isn't really what the phone was designed for so we'll give it a break and say that it's just the camera that isn't great.

The model has plenty of features to keep most people happy, but to be honest the tech craving crowd will probably go elsewhere. For a regular guy that isn't into all the bells and whistles, this model will be great.

Key features of the Juke include a VGA resolution camera, 2GB of built-in memory, stereo Bluetooth, speed-dialing, messaging, and active voice commands. Key features that the model doesn't come with are Ev-Do, Bluetooth OBEX, and web browsing.

Once I found out the the Juke doesn't have a web browser I knew that I would never buy one, but for those of you that don't browse the internet on your phone I think you'll like it. The menu is really easy to browse, and it's quite quick. The phone has good call reception and some nice functionality.
