Samsung Comeback T559 Review
Undoubtedly this phone is geared for its messaging features, but we received some good results for its phone call quality as well. There were no background noises during our calls while voices sounded clear and vibrant. On the other end, callers said our voice was muffled but were still able to make it out. Using the speakerphone resulted in the same experience – we preferred having it placed on the middle setting, which was still loud enough and prevented the crackling sounds from being heard when set to the loudest volume.

It held up well in keeping a signal in the greater Philadelphia area. We did not experience any fluctuations in the amount of bars displayed on the Comeback.

If you're a heavy user, you'll probably see yourself having to charge this device more often. We were able to get 5 days out of the Comeback before it was completely drained. We had both displays set to the highest brightness during our testing. We would assume that using the external PMOLED more than the internal one would extend the battery life. Samsung has it rated for 5.5 hours of talk and 300 hours of standby.


Conclusion: 

We really can't complain too much about the Samsung Comeback T559. Despite its retro looks, it works remarkably well with its beautiful screens, intuitive interface, and good media features. If the  QWERTY keyboard was more suitable for larger fingers, it could've been a text messenger's dream phone. This may not be the comeback device that Samsung might have been hoping for, but at least it serves to be a well all-around mobile phone.

This phone's keys are really not that much of an inconvenience. I'm a very tall man, and I have very large hands, and large fingers, but the keys have never given me any trouble. It's an excellent phone, and I recommend it to anybody. The only con I can find is the way the battery pops right out every time the phone falls.
