Macnn

A capable but cheap touchscreen slider

from Macnn

The Seek is a lot of phone for only $20 (albeit after a rebate). The built-in social media, messaging, em-ail, and Internet applications are all designed well for the tiny profile. If you need a simple, affordable Sprint phone that has a few key advanced capabilities, the Seek is a great choice; it's a good teenager's phone if you can get it in a tasteful color. Just be sure to bring along a dedicated camera.

The Seek is a good first phone

from PhoneArena

The Samsung Seek is a fine device for what it is.  It has some drawbacks such as a subpar music player and no navigation, but this phone is aimed at a market that likely isn’t driving yet and already owns an iPod.  It is a much better phone than the similarly-equipped LG Remarq even with a price tag that is $30 higher.  The Seek is a good first phone and the touchscreen and full QWERTY keyboard will appeal to the younger crowd who is more concerned with appearance than substance.

Mobile Tech Review

Inexpensive QWERTY phone with easy to use interface, full messaging and social networking

from Mobile Tech Review

Today’s young mobile phone users center their needs on messaging and social networking, and an inexpensive QWERTY phone with an easy to use interface and full messaging and social networking is a good place to start. If you don’t need a smartphone or multimedia services tied to 3G, the Samsung Seek has all the essentials at lower monthly cost without requiring a smartphone data plan. The touch screen works very smoothly and the QWERTY keyboard is very nice. The phone feels well built and rugged enough to mix with books and school gear in a backpack.

Cnet

A serviceable midrange messaging touch-screen phone

from Cnet

Even though we typically associate the touch-screen interface with smartphones and high-end feature phones, there are midrange devices that offer it as well. Take the Samsung Seek from Sprint, for example. Billed as a simple messaging phone with a social networking bent, the Seek comes with a decent touch-screen display in addition to a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It also has basic multimedia offerings like a 1.3-megapixel camera and a music player. Aside from that, it's nothing too advanced, but it does make for a decent middle-of-the-road messaging phone for Sprint customers.

PC Magazine

A good buy for messaging mavens on a budget, but it's behind the curve as a media and Web phone

In short, the Seek isn't all that powerful, but it offers a good mix of standard features at a low price. The LG Rumor Touch, our current Editors' Choice on Sprint, also has a subpar Web browser, and it lacks an IM client. But the Rumor Touch features a larger 3-inch touch screen, a larger five-row keyboard, 3G speed, better battery life, and access to Sprint TV and Sprint Navigation for GPS directions for just $50 more up-front and no more per month. While the Seek isn't a bad choice, the Rumor Touch is much better all around.

Phonedog

Definitely made for social networking and sending text messages

from Phonedog

The Samsung Seek is small and cute, has a great QWERTY keyboard, and was definitely made for social networking and sending text messages. I had problems with the web browser and I’ve never been a fan of the UI that the Seek and the Instinct uses. That may not be a problem for you. If not, then the fact that it comes preloaded with all the apps and shortcuts you’ll need to keep it touch with the world makes it a pretty cool little device, though I personally would prefer a device like the LG Rumor Touch which also has a touchscreen, QWERTY keyboard and was made for social networking.

Terrible phone.

This is a horrible phone. You can't use your own ringtones. You can't even get one from a friend via bluetooth-which is really useless. The only way to get one is to go to the special place for this phone and pay through the nose for one. You can't even get one via your computer because they have that...More
This is a horrible phone. You can't use your own ringtones. You can't even get one from a friend via bluetooth-which is really useless. The only way to get one is to go to the special place for this phone and pay through the nose for one. You can't even get one via your computer because they have that locked out as well. Nice flashy touchscreen phone that does nothing but make calls and simple texts. If I had known before I bought this "nice looking" phone, that it was nothing more than looks, I would never have bought it. Less

ENTRO is completely UNRELIABLE - A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT

I bought this as a prepaid phone for my teenage daughter. I have been a strong believer in Samsung products, having had nothing but great experiences with other Samsung phones over the past 7 years. This phone however, began acting up within just a couple months of purchase. It would take about 10 minutes to boot when turned on, and sometimes would turn off by itself. We brought it to Bell, they sent it back to Samsung, and within 3 weeks it was returned. It worked better for about a month, then went back to it's original pattern of long boots, and random shutdowns. I did not learn of this for some months later, because my daughter did NOT want to go 3 weeks without a phone again. Instead, she just never turned the phone off, and tolerated the shutdowns whenever they occured. She also has noted that every single one of her friends that has this phone (and there are many of them) also have the same problems. Finally, with months still remaining on the 1yr warranty, the phone simply shutdown, and would NOT power back on. I am now trying to get satisfaction from Samsung and Bell. Clearly, this phone is outrightly DEFECTIVE, and I have NO INTENTIONS of sending it away to be fixed, just so Samsung can enable the product to limp through the final months of its warranty, at which time it will wash it's hands of its responsibility. I don't think this phone is available for purchase anymore, but if it is...DO NOT BUY IT. I give the phone a 9/10 for features and ease of use, but it gets a -9/10 for reliability, for a net score of ZERO. If I get a suitable and reliable replacement phone from Samsung/Bell, I would upgrade the score to 1/10, for their great customer service. Less

Love This Phone!

I just upgraded to this phone the other day and I love it. No problems as of yet. Very user friendly compared to my other phone. Internet is easy to read on it and it's feature packed. Even voice recognition. For an inexpensive phone, this one delivers. Don't know what all the complaining is about.

I have had this phone since christmas of 2010, I really loved it for my first phone but now the problems its having. I had it for about 2 months and had to send it in for repair after one morning it wouldnt turn on for me and just froze on a black page. It has been fine since until 2 days ago when all of a sudden the touch screen isnt working what so ever this is unfortunate because this phone is based on navigating around using the touch screen so now I cant start a text or use the touch at all :(!!!

Defective Slide Mechansim

I would avoid this phone at all costs. The slide mechanism is very poorly manufactured, and eventually causes a short that results in the screen blanking out. I had this phone repaired once a month ago, and it has again failed. The phone is less than a year old. Give this phone a miss.

Thank you Good post I like your post. Thats good....

after about a year

I have been using this phone for about year, have had no problems with it, and am happy with it. I'd recommend it. It may not be an iPhone, but it is good value for price. And I like PC mobile.
I had this phone for a day now and it works great and I haven't had a problem yet. The only thing you might find is that the touch screen is a little soft. That is up to you if you find that good or bad. Overall it is a great phone and would recommend highly.

I hate this phone

I hate this phone, it's terrible. It constantly freezes or just turns itself off. you don't even have to do anything to get it to freeze, it just decides to stop working. When you press the hold button, it shows the time. But recently it's been showing a different time than the time on the home screen...More
I hate this phone, it's terrible. It constantly freezes or just turns itself off. you don't even have to do anything to get it to freeze, it just decides to stop working. When you press the hold button, it shows the time. But recently it's been showing a different time than the time on the home screen (the correct time). There's another clock at the top right that shows a different time too. Sometimes the lock screen will say 2:05, the home screen 2:15, and the top right 2:07. When you take a picture and try to use it as a screensaver it flips the picture for you, but usually in the wrong way so your picture's upside down. This phone does not organize texts into conversations. I can't find out how to get my phone to stop vibrating for the life of me, even if i put it on "silent" it still vibrates. It'll tell you it has full battery for 2 days, then as soon as it goes down one bar it'll die in a few hours. so it tells you you have 4 bar battery life, and what that really means is you better charge your phone fast The call quality's pretty bad too. Everything about this phone just irks me, I can't wait to get a new one. Less

i can not stand my phone anymore... i have only had it for 2 months and already thinking about throwing it. it truns off by its self then when i go to turn it back on i cant for about an hour or two. when it does findly turn back on i have missed so many phone calls or text. PC should give people that have this phone a new one or give their money back. if PC doesnt get the problem fixed i know i'll be going to head office to get it fixed

At first, I loved the phone, it was amazing. I had no problem. The first time it froze, I had to pull out the battery and it took 10 minutes to start up.
