Review: Samsung Glyde
The Glyde pairs a few of the best things from the physical and touch worlds. For those with finger fetishes, you get to rub yours all over the Glyde and use it to touch and touch and touch again that touch-screen.
For the most part, the touching aspect works well, though we did find that some adjustment was necessary to get it working well for us.
Having access to the full, physical, QWERTY keyboard is a nice touch (pun intended) for those that prefer to have real keys for typing. Having the keyboard definitely speeds up text input and makes typing in URLs much easier than the triple tap method.
The phone itself is a nice size and weight, making it very pocket friendly. It also adds in most of the features that have become standard for an upper-end feature phone. The solid camera and camera UI, music player, and browser make the Glyde a perfect way to distract oneself.
Our review unit did, however, suffer from low signal strength and only so-so call quality. You might want to check for yourself to see how it performs in your area.
