The low specs, flat keyboard, and unattractive look outweigh the Samsung Intensity III's rugged design and call simulator
Unfortunately, the Samsung Intensity III isn't so "intense." Although it can survive the hard bumps of daily (and sometimes, not-so-daily) use, to be worth its rugged salt, it should be water-resistant as well. In addition, its unattractive look and its all-too-flat keyboard surface are two design flaws I can't get over.
Ultimately, even though it makes solid calls and has a great call simulator for bad social situations you want to get out of, its low specs isn't worth it. Instead, consider the LG Extravert. It too is a simple feature phone on Verizon's network that has a sliding keyboard, but it has much more comfortable keys.
