Samsung Alias U740 Review
The U740 from Verizon Wireless is Samsung’s first attempt of offering a phone with a QWERTY keypad, which happens to be in direct competition to LG’s enV (VX9900). While both phones offer a QWERTY design, that is where the similarities end. LG took the previous VX9800 and made significant improvements with the second-generation VX9900 device. However, the Samsung U740 lacks many of the improvements that are found on the VX9900. The VX9900 is a large clamshell phone that incorporates a 65K color display on the front, 2MP camera, Stereo Speakers, and QVGA 320x240 display on the inside.

Meanwhile, the U740 has the appearance of a standard slim-sized flip phone, with an external 65K color display, 1.3MP Camera, and touch-sensitive music playback buttons. The inside has a QWERTY keypad (which also serves as the dialing keys), Stereo Speakers, and 220x176 display.

Included in the retail package is the U740 phone, 800 mAh battery, travel charger, headset adapter with 2.5mm jack, and user guide.
