Samsung Intensity II ReviewSamsung Intensity II 6.5
The signal reception on both the Intensity II and Intensity were good and identical to each other, with 2-3 bars showing in high-coverage areas and without dropping any calls. However, the call quality on the Intensity II was slight better, as voices were a bit more natural sounding, though still not a good as what we experienced when using the LG Cosmos. But the speakerphone on the Intensity II was the clear winner, as it was louder and lacked any distortion.
The Intensity II comes with a 1000mAh battery, up slightly from 960mAh on the Intensity, though both are rated to provide up to 5 hours of talk time or 12 days of standby time. During our testing, we were able to get up to 5 hours of continuous talk time on the Intensity II, which is 30 minutes longer than what we got using the Intensity.
So is the Samsung Intensity II U460 worth buying if you have the original Intensity U450? Not really. The only noticeable upgrade is the QVGA display, as most everything else is pretty much the same, except for some minor cosmetic differences. But that being said, the Intensity II is a pretty decent message phone considering its low price, plus it doesn’t require Verizon’s $9.99 monthly data plan that more advanced phones use, such as the Samsung Rogue U820. The only downside to this is that it uses the slower 1x network for data, but if you don’t plan on using the web browser or social beat software much, then the Intensity II is a pretty good device for the teen crowd.
