Review: Samsung Flight II
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.
