Samsung Intensity U450 Review

Samsung Intensity

Posted: , posted by PhoneArena Team



The signal reception of the Samsung Intensity U450 was quite good and about equal to what we experienced while using the enV3, Alias 2 and Rogue, as we didn’t drop any calls and had 2-3 bars showing in high coverage areas. Call quality however was a step-down from the competition, as voices didn’t sound as clear and natural, but still better than when using the Motorola Rival A455.

The 960 mAh battery that is included with the Intensity is 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 4.5 hours of continuous talk time on a full charge, which is the same amount as on the Samsung Rogue U960.


The Samsung Intensity U450 isn’t that “intense” and doesn’t offer anything new that can’t be found on the competition.  Its main selling feature is the QWERTY keyboard combined with the phone’s low price-point, but you get what you pay for as the Intensity’s overall build quality is lacking. If you are looking for a basic phone with a QWERTY keyboard and without a touchscreen, the LG enV3 is still the top device in that category.
