The replacement of the Samsung Glyde U940, the Rogue U960 has been released and we’re eager to see if Samsung got it right this time. Not to mention that we are curious in how the Rogue compares with the LG enV Touch VX11000...

Looks like a nice device, but I've decided that it's not for me. Any chance of an Intensity review soon?

The intensity is a little smaller and cheaper feeling. the camera isnt as good and it also can not take video. Also has the proprietary charger and has the smaller headphone jack. Its nice if you dont really want any type of multimedia and are just looking for a basic phone that has a keyboard. Then by all means its cheap and does the trick. But if you are looking to do pictures and videos and all those other multimedia things, id go with something else.

Actually, with the touch wiz interface on this phone, it does allow for music multitasking. You can have the music player up on the homescreen and be playing and listening to music, while doing other things like texting, web browsing, or whatever.

We do not see that on the Rogue. Unlike there Samsung Omnia there isn't a widget for the music player. The Rogue has widgets for alarm clock, birthday, bluetooth, calculator, calendar, clock, date, facebook, games, my favorites, my pictures, my shortcuts, my verizon, myspace, notepad, personal banner, photobucket, sketch pad, tutorial, twitter, widget settings, and youtube. Within the "my shortcuts" you can link to music playlists, but that uses the main music player.

Megaman is correct actually, are you sure you arent reviewing a prototype instead of the final retail unit?

Where are you seeing this? I just got the Rogue today and can't find any sort of music widget or tool to multitask with music.

If anyone has information or pictures of the music player being able to multitask, please let us know firstname.lastname@example.org

I was looking into getting the new Rogue but after seeing that only one display theme is included and the music player is outdated, I think the EnVTouch is more for me.

The env touch music player does not correctly read id3 tags.

You can copy and paste from the internet to a text, a text to another text, and text to internet.

Just curious how certain you are that the touch screen problems are solved. I loved my Glyde and it worked perfect since I got it in mid-2008. It was only in the last month or so that I started to experience the touch screen issues everyone is talking about :( The phone has a mind of it's own! I love everything else about the Glyde, but feel like I'd be crazy to upgrade to the Rogue. Sounds like it is a completely different technology, so is that why you are sure it will work well over time? Thanks for the review!

i have the samsung rogue, and i hate it. after a while it develops a BUNCH of problems! the picture on the screen splits in half, and random lines appear on the screen. sometimes when you open it, the screen doesnt switch, and lately when i open the keypad, the device turns off. also, the more you put on the phone, the crappier it works. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR, AND DONT BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!

i've been having problems with my samsung rogue. A couple months ago the touch screen would not work unless i pressed down on it real hard. Now the phone will turn on but the screen is black. I can't see anything and i can't make phone calls. Should i just go buy a new phone or is it fixable? I doubt i could fix it by myself...so i either pay someone to fix it or buy a whole new phone.
