It does work well overall

from MobileBurn (7 years ago)

The Rant is not one of those high profile type devices that attracts stares. It's just not that flashy (at least not in black, the red and purple versions are another story completely). But it does work well overall, and has a very usable full QWERTY keyboard. For most people that's going to be more... More

Samsung Rant Red | Review

from Phonedog (7 years ago)

Samsung RantAt a GlanceWhat’s Good: It's a godsend for mobile text/IM/email addicts; slide-out QWERTY is comfortable and requires about 60 seconds of adaptation; it's Sprint TV and Sprint Music Store capable; music plays in background; stereo Bluetooth; camera with video capture and night shot; phot...

The Best QWERTY keyboard I have ever used.

(4 years ago)

KEYBOARD: I bought this phone instead of a BlackBerry and HTC product, simply because the keyboard was the nicest one I had ever tried. It has spaces between the keys for fewer mess ups, easily pressed and comfortable for quick texting. Fantastic. I realised I was buying a cheaper product, so the... More


Great at first.....

(4 years ago)

The Samsung Slyde was great for around 6~8 months but then it starts to go weird. I've had problems like the screen not rotating when i slide the phone,White screen during start up,and it restarting itself periodically. Overall i would recommend this phone for prepaid users but not for Month to Mont... More


This phone was good, but now it's awful

(5 years ago)

I dropped my Samsung Slyde once, from a super short distance, like from my bed to the floor. The LCD screen on this phone is both crap and VERY delicate. It's been a downward fall for this phone and myself. Before it was when you touch the screen it went brighter, then it turned white, and now it's... More


This phone is awful

(5 years ago)

The screen always freezes, and it shuts itself off all the time. Everyone I know who has it hate it. The camera doesn't have zoom, but the video option does. I find the number buttons on the front much to small. The only thing I like is the QWERTY keyboard.


I Love this phone

(5 years ago)

I have had this phone for two and a half years and i LOVE it. Great to text with, mine seems unbreakable.I accidentally dropped in over a ledge and it fell 2 stories and didn't even turn off. It has a great camera and it has a nice appearance. The ONLY thing I don't like is that it doesn't put pictu... More



(5 years ago)

Okay, I've had this phone since June of 2009. The first couple of months, it was great. East to text with, simple to use, perfect for my. But that only lasted for about 6 months. It's not a touch phone, so dropping it a few times shouldn't completely screw it up! It randomly turns off, freezes ever... More


Has its ups and downs

(5 years ago)

My sister and I each got one of these phones about a year and a half ago. At first, it was great, but it started to have a lot of problems. First of all, my sister's phone was stuck on vibrate for a couple of weeks and she couldn't switch it back. Secondly, the screen seems to get damaged pretty q... More


Great phone.

from Amazon (5 years ago)

Love this phone. Every phone I've had, I grew to hate it, except for this one. I didn't have any problems with it whatsoever. :]


To Many Problems

from Amazon (5 years ago)

I got this phone because I like texting and it looked like a good choice. It seemed like a good phone for a while but as days past it gets worse and worse. The screen freezes a lot. Also, It has to many issues! I sometimes send somebody a text and it stops and asks "Would you like to send this now?"... More


Not satisfied at all

(5 years ago)

When the phone was on silent, it would often beep at random. For example, when done charging it will let you know with 3 loud beeps even when on silent. Because I charged my phone at night this would wake me up in the early hours of every morning. It would only save a select few of my outbox message... More
