Reviews summary

Based on 5 reviews

Samsung has produced yet another “phone for young people” that want to connect, text and talk. The Samsung Comeback is in many ways another version of the Propel, only this one adds a second display and even easier access to the functions kids want.

While you won’t find any high-end elements or features here, you do get a great, dependable device perfect for the younger user who wants good call quality, a full QWERTY keypad, and some style.

The Samsung Comeback is a side-slider fashioned in white with red trim and accents. Closed, the navigation array bisects the display above and alpha-numeric keypad below. In the closed position the user can make calls, text using T9 and perform a short range of other features.

The phone opens to reveal a larger screen inside and a full QWERTY display dominating the left side, with an additional navigation array on the right. The Comeback allows easy access to instant messaging, email and social networking options. In the open mode kids can go wild with texting and just plain staying connected with their friends.

Add a 2 megapixel camera, a microSD slot which supports up to 16GB of songs, pictures and video, and you have text and social networking phone with a young, fun-feel that doesn’t go anywhere near higher functionality…and doesn’t want to.

If you are shopping for a teenage daughter, take a hard look at this fine phone.

There are more annoyances than advantages

from MobileBurn

The Samsung SGH-T559 Comeback, for T-Mobile, with its standard numeric keypad and hidden QWERTY keyboard, has the potential to be a powerful messaging tool. Unfortunately, the internal QWERTY keyboard's buttons are far too small and close together to be able to type quickly, and the build quality of the phone itself is poor. The multimedia features are an exercise in frustration, as well, thanks to a poor music player and the microSD card being hidden beneath the battery. The browser is snappy, but ultimately incredibly limited, and the camera produces poor results, as well. On the bright s... Full review

One of the most feature-packed messaging phones T-Mobile has to offer

from CNET
The Samsung Comeback SGH-T559 has plenty of features, including quad-band support, 3G, a full HTML browser with Flash Lite support, and GPS. It also has very good call quality.

Pro: This phone is extremely easy to figure out. I figured it out within a matter of days. The qwerty keyboard and dial pad are easy to get used to for the size of the keys. For having a 2.0 MP camera, it takes good quality pictures. Videos recorded with the phone have decent sound quality. Sound quality for the music player is clear and understandable. Despite bluetooth problems, the phone's internet capabilities make it easy to find what you're looking for and add it to your phone. T Con: On very rare occasions, the qwerty keyboard won't respond. But it can be fixed by simply restarting the phone. Sound quality on youtube videos aren't very good. Kind of sounds like you're hearing the video played on the other side of the phone. SD card slot is located underneath the battery. Inconvenient at times. Sometimes the phone duplicates certain contacts if you add a new contact into your phone. Using experience: 13 months If you need a phone that is designed for fast texting and internet, this phone is the way to go. It delivers good quality photos and videos. It's a great phone if you're looking for an upgrade from a basic cell phone. Again, there were problems with the bluetooth, but there are ways around it that don't take up that much of your time. Overall, this is a solid phone that can fit the needs of anyone who uses it. Less
