The Flight II doesn't do justice in being a quick messaging phone due to the annoyances we find with its text input method and keyboard itself.

Phone Scoop

It's disorganized and difficult to use

The Samsung Flight II is a phone that has significant problems that make almost every feature more difficult to use. The phone feels slow and unresponsive in every way. From navigating the homescreen and main menus to digging through the various apps, using the Flight II was a real chore.

The phone comes packed with social networking apps and other features, but none of them work very well. The social networking apps ranged from buggy widgets to the uninspiring Social Net app to the completely useless PicDial app, and none of these added up to a satisfying social experience. Even worse, the phone is far behind the times when it comes to text messaging, when this should really be its strongest suit.

Finally, there is TouchWIZ, an interface that Samsung should have left behind years ago. It's disorganized and difficult to use. Worst of all, it expects too much from the phone, requiring too many swipes and gestures that the Flight II is incapable of pulling off easily. The Flight II might seem fine on paper, with so many features, but they don't add up to an acceptable quick messaging experience.

When AT&T's lineup is littered with a handful amount of feature phones from Samsung, the Flight II finds itself in the presence of some stiff competition from its own flesh and blood. Considering that the handset doesn't offer anything compelling over its older siblings, it makes for a difficult reason to choose this over others – especially when better handsets, like the Samsung Impression, are still available for purchase. It's hard to gather why the manufacturer decided to craft a successor to the original Flight, even when that handset didn't necessarily seem as capable as the Impression. To top things off, the Flight II doesn't do justice in being a quick messaging phone due to the annoyances we find with its text input method and keyboard itself. All in all, the handset quickly takes a nose dive straight down back to Earth as it flounders in its place to keep pace with the competition.
