Pretty good call quality and excellent battery life

from Phone Scoop (4 years ago)

There's nothing inherently wrong with the Samsung DoubleTime. It's a fine phone in most respects. It's also completely boring. For a device that is obviously aimed at helping bridge the gap between quick messaging devices and mid-range smartphones, the DoubleTime offers few unique or interesting fea... More

Honestly, the DoubleTime is not worth your consideration

from Phonedog (4 years ago)

I've been pleasantly surprised by a number of low-end and mid-range smartphones that offered performance that far exceeded my expectations for such a device. The DoubleTime is not one of those phones. Outside of its stellar QWERTY keyboard, there's nothing that convinces me that this is the phone yo... More

It looks and feels like a feature phone, but it runs Android and requires a data plan

from The Verge (4 years ago)

AT&T wants you to believe the DoubleTime is an inexpensive smartphone — if it is, it’s as bad a smartphone as I’ve used in a long time. Requiring a data plan with this device is a huge mistake that totally dooms the DoubleTime, because at the cost of ownership I can’t pos... More


You’re better off investing the money on something considerably better

from PhoneArena (4 years ago)

Seriously, for $49.99 on-contract, you’re better off investing the money on something considerably better – especially when there are a variety of other smartphones that tastefully show off the beauty of Android. To tell you the truth, the Samsung DoubeTime is somewhat of an injustice in... More


The Samsung DoubleTime has two displays and a keyboard, but that isn't reason enough to buy it

from PC Magazine (4 years ago)

The Samsung DoubleTime has a hidden surprise inside: a full QWERTY keyboard with a secondary display, turning it into a micro-laptop. Unfortunately, it doesn't deliver the performance to go with its ambitious look. Even if you absolutely need a keyboard, you can find a better smartphone on AT&T... More


The lower-end specs and outdated Android OS do the phone no favors

from Cnet (4 years ago)

Samsung and AT&T took the plunge on the DoubleTime's more singular looks, a chancier move since the bulkier, shorter, and pinker form constricts its mass appeal. If, like me, you take a shine to the handset's appearance, dual-screen design, and call-quality bonus, you might (like me) ask yoursel... More


It’s worth considering for family members or friends who aren’t interested in Ice Cream Sandwich or massive screens

from Android Community (4 years ago)

As an Android fanboy, the choice to limit the DoubleTime with Froyo really, really gets on my nerves. But from the perspective of a first-time smartphone buyer, who just wants a phone with a great keyboard and decent call quality, with Android and app installation as an after thought, it’s a p...

It holds some sway in its own lower level of internet-capable handsets

from SlashGear (4 years ago)

While this smartphone is far and away, not even in the same ballpark, basically not even the same sport as the top tier smartphones also made by Samsung such as the Galaxy S II or even the top of middle-tier devices like the Samsung Captivate Glide, it does hold some sway in its own lower level of i...
