Review: Samsung UpStage

Like text messaging, browsing can become tedious and you may give up. If you're just reading your favorite bookmarks instead of really trying to interact with a website, the UpStage works well enough, but ordering your movie tickets online is an exercise in frustration.

If all you want to do is quickly check the news, Sprint's On Demand application offers a much more convenient experience. Once you've entered your zip code once, you won't need to use the phone face again unless your searching for something, and even then you won't need to flip the phone nearly as often.

Data speed for either browsers is pleasantly fast.



The UpStage has two themes - a black one similar to the Samsung Sync and a white one. This theme is used on both sides. Any picture on the phone can be used as a wallpaper for the media side. The phone side cannot display photos. As with all Samsung phones, you can also change the color of the numbers displayed while dialing.

The only way to get custom ringtones on the UpStage other than buying them from Sprint is to use a service that will send them to your phone as an MMS.


There is a full file manager in the Tools menu that lets you use, move or delete any files you loaded on the UpStage or the memory card yourself. The My Content application is still the centralized manager for all purchased content.
