Samsung Alias 2 U750 Review
The Call Quality of the Samsung Alias 2 U750 was quite impressive, about equal to the Samsung Trance U490 and LG Chocolate 3. Voices through the earpiece speaker sounded clear and natural, lacking any static or background noise, but there was a slight distortion if turned up to the highest volume level. People that we called, who were using a landline, said our voice also sounded clear and natural on their end. The speakerphone is also loud, but it too had a bit of distortion at the highest volume setting. Reception was good, as we averaged between 2-3 bars of 1X and EVDO around South FL and didn’t drop any calls. The Alias 2 uses the same 880mAh battery as the Trance and also achieved 5 hours of continuous talk time on a full charge.
Unlike the original Alias, the new Alias 2 is an all-around winner for the heavy text messenger. The E-ink keyboard is what truly sets this device apart from the competition, as there is a definite cool factor involved, even though the buttons are still packed close together. The internal display is a joy to use and the camera takes good 2MP images, despite it not have auto focus. Music quality could be better, but since this isn’t a music-centric phone, this is to be expected. Both the call quality and reception were equal to most other mid-to-high-end Verizon phones, despite the slight distortion at high volume levels. If you are looking for the coolest QWERTY phone for Verizon, without going to the touchscreen Versa or a smartphone, then the Samsung Alias 2 U750 is for you.
