Review: Samsung Convoy 2

Form Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  

The Convoy 2, while living up to its rugged billing, is a case where the software fails the hardware. The physical features and capabilities of the Convoy 2 are not in question. The phone is tough, works well, and does what Samsung's engineers built it to do.

The archaic menu system stuffed into the Convoy 2 by Verizon, however, is a shame. It's not particularly bad software, per se, but it is in no way compelling to use or interact with. It functions -- minus the fun.

Perhaps a simple feature phone user interface is what you're looking for; Maybe the awesome speakerphone and solid battery life are more important to you than slick software; Maybe fancy media features are of no interest as long as the phone keeps you in touch with your family and friends. It is these reasons that make the Convoy 2 a good choice for some.
