Samsung Genio Qwerty review
|Review: February 2010|
In a nutshell: The Samsung Genio Qwerty appears to be a low cost alternative to a BlackBerry, but the keyboard turns out to be a flop.
You fancy a BlackBerry Curve, but don't want to pay the money? You want email on the go and a full QWERTY keyboard plus fun fashionable style? Can the Genio Qwerty really deliver all this, or is it too good to be true? Read on if you want to find out!
Well, the Genio Qwerty looks very much like a BlackBerry Curve. It's about the same size, and it shares the same style of QWERTY keyboard. The Samsung has more of a fun feel to it however, with changeable covers on the back, so you can swap from black to white to yellow. But note that only the back changes colour - the front stays black.
The display isn't up to much. At 2.2 inches, it's much smaller than the BlackBerry, and has a low resolution of 176 x 220 pixels. But it's the keyboard that turns out to be the biggest disappointment. It's just nasty. The keys are so small that you'll need tiny fingers to use it, but the real problem is that when you press one key, the whole keyboard flops up and down, making it very hard to press the right key and get positive feedback. The thing also feels like it won't last more than a few months.
The camera's sub-standard too, even for this low price point. There's no flash and you'll get grainy shots unless you shoot in absolutely perfect conditions.
The Genio Qwerty does come with a music player and FM radio, and has the bonus of a 3.5mm audio jack so you can plug in your own headphones. The onboard memory is pretty small at 41 MB, but you can add a microSD memory card up to 8GB if you want to store your music collection on the phone. But we wouldn't recommend replacing your iPod with this phone.
The Genio Qwerty has been designed with social networking in mind, and we like the way that it handles texts with its cool bubble-quote graphics. Email isn't as easy to handle as a BlackBerry though, and it's not great for web browsing or facebook with its tiny screen and lack of any kind of rapid data transfer.
Battery life is adequate, although not particularly strong, although it does recharge quickly. Connectivity is quadband GSM, with USB and Bluetooth.
We are struggling to find a niche for the Genio Qwerty. What are its real strengths? It's not the QWERTY keyboard, and its not text messaging or email. It's not music and its not taking photos. I think that you can see where we are going with this review. Stick with the Genio Touch for better texting, or upgrade to the Genio Slide if you can afford a little extra.

I bought this phone a while ago and thought it was amazing. After a while the paint started coming off the qwerty keyboard and it resends old texts from 3 months ago. But it can withstand any knocks and falls!

An indestructible phone! Charges rapidly, great for texting quickly, can get signal everywhere, great phone would deffo get another :)

To begin with I thought what a great phone....then I wondered why I was going through my freedom pack so quickly...it costs twice as much to send texts than my old phone as the pages to write the text are so small and you need twice as many pages to send the texts...I used up all my text credits in 2 weeks... normally never reach the limit. Not impressed. This happened 2 months in a row. I compared with my last phone and sent the same text...word for word cost twice as much on this phone. Expensive to use.

I had this phone ages ago, and this is good for texting and calling, amazing at taking pictures but it is very small. GOod on a small budget, the battery is good, I charged it every 2 days and it worked fine. Good for putting music on, but wouldnt have it if you use social networking or text constantly. If you are one of theose people you should buy a blackberry, as this isnt the best phone.

Hi i got my genio for about 8months as a gift by my father and found no problems as the others says.i like the fashion jackets and it looks like a blackberry.honestly i ll say that at the beginning it was dificult to use but at using it for 2weeks i realise that it was very cool.good game dowloading.but the problem is that there are no many games for this type of screen.and the net is slow but with opera mini it's quite good.i got the usb cable but my computer asks me the driver to do operations.apart from that it can't run applications of more than 500kb.don't know if im the only one with that problem.the camera isn't that bad but it'll be better with a flash.i'll giv it 3stars for the music player and radio,it plays my sd card very well also and i m impressed it can play my 400and +songs very well the earphone jacket is quite good also.hop this will help you optimise ur phons.good samaung i like it...

I bought a samsung galaxy europa on friday and took it back to the shop on monday as the touch screen was too sensitive and 3G was very poor in my area. I exchanged it for the samsung genio qwerty and it is much better for me. Keys are fine and I can text a lot quicker. it has everything I want on a mobile phone.

ive had this phone for over year! its amazing! i had a blackberry a few months ago! Giving my mate the genio qwerty! Soon swapped it back!! this phone is everything you need- qwerty keyboard-loud speakerphone-clear messages! No the camera isnt that good.. but its usable.. if you'v got a camera in your bag then who needs to use the phone for it!!! Internet is slow! but i only use it for social networking! the keyboards got clear buttons, easy to use.. and fast! battery life is amazing! im always listening to music (3/4 hours)... it takes a beating.. from being dropped down a multi story carpark stairs.. to being lobbed at a door! it looks and feels expensive!! i personally think its better than the blackberry curve.. works like one.. looks abit like one.. but for me this phone does it all!!

I'm a teenage girl and got this phone recently , because i couldn't afford a blackberry. I was very pleased with the battery life, the keys aren't that bad in my opinion. Unfortunately it didn't come with a cable to connect it to the computer, the headphones that were provided were weird, you couldn't hear the singing, you cant play the radio unless headphones are plugged in, however it is a good radio. Good money for the phone , overall good buy :)

I got mine january last year and i love it. The small keys dont bother me because iv got small fingers and after a while you get used to it. The internets not all great but that to do with network problems. I dont like the camera because its not great quality but thats what iv got my digital camera for. The only thing that majorly annoys me is that it wont accept my SD card -.- plus iv been reading other reviews and everyones saying that it gets scratched easily and the keys are chipping. after a year and a half mine are starting to but not that badly and thats with me constantly dropping it.

I got this for Christmas because I don't have the money for a blackberry and my parents wouldn't pay for one... It was working fine BUT the keys chip so you can't see the letters any more (I just know where they all are), I have a few scratches on my screen due to keys, the music player doesn't play most of my songs (which is annoying when I forget my iPod) and now hotmail says I need Java script to access these. It was fine a few weeks ago but I'm finding this phone more annoying as time goes on. Depending on where I am, the internet can be fast to not working at all (that's to do with the network) and it doesn't like my SD card for extra memory so it restarts itself when it doesn't respond. Yes it charges within 2.5 hours but the battery can last as little as a day if I use it a lot, or three days if I don't. the keys are too close together so I often have to check my texts before sending them, even though I can text faster than with the standard three keys in a row phone.

Hi!! I got this phone in like Febuary 2011, and yeah, im very pleased with it. But I think that the phone is aimed at youngsters, as for the QWERTY keypad has very small keys which means the phone can be quite hard to text with. The Fashion Jackety part of it is really cool, so you can personalise your phone the way you want it to look. There are two colours, white and yellow, i cant recommend one really, because they both are very appeling. I think the screen is very good, and the 2 MP camera has really cool mosaics, and effects you can play around with. It also has the 3.5mm headphone jack, which is helpful if you want to use like good quality earphones e.g IPod ones. It has really cool themes, one for example is a orange haired fellow who moves its head at what selection you are on. When you press enter to enter that selection, he pulls on a chain, and opens it up for you, which i think is really fun! Also, on the menu transitions, there is like a kinda door one, were when you enter stuff, the menu will split in half, as like a door opening. The Internet on the phone is very slow, and can sometimes frezze your phone, so i think if you get a bundle/contract, unless its compulsory, dont bother paying for the internet. Really good phone in general, its average price, is about £50, which is quite good for the phone, and perfect for those who would like a blackberry, but dont have quite enough for one. thank you for reading my review! I hoped this helped you!!

I got the white version of this phone. I have never fallen for the hype of phones as pretty much the entire planet seems to done, but with 3 kids all owning Mega Hyper Phones with more power than my PC, I had to get a cheapie for myself to replace my Sony v640i Am I happy? Not really. The slider thing is cruddy and I have lowered the sensitivity down a lot but its still awkward. The menus are nasty to work through and I hate the way it does do it. As for a Music player, Im ok with it to be honest. and I cannot fairly compare it to anything. I was just happy with the V640i but the port is iffy on that so teh headphones / charger kept popping out and thats why I had to chose a phone with 3.5mm headphone socket. Its says its WIFI, but unless Im missing something, thats wrong. My kids phones connect to my router just fine, but this has to connect via PAYG... If it allowed connection through the router then it would be brilliant, but as it is...No! It is supposed to be good for socialising, but I find tralking to a person better anyway, but either way, I have setup my GMail account with it and it worked, so that was fun but alas will never again be used because I have a life. Similarly I have piddled with Facebook and Twitter and again, that will never be used again, but it was simple and worked instantly with minimal fuss. To be honest with you, I tink its not a bad phone at all. I paid £50 for it and I see it cheaper in places but Im happy with the price... I think? Im keeping my V640I however... Just in case!

I bought the Samsung Genio Qwerty just about two days ago however I'm still a bit unsure about it. The battery life is ok but it runs out quite quickly I guess I could say. The camera isn't that great even though its two megapixels. If you was shooting at night, you would probably only be able to make out the outline of a body shape. Soacial messaging on the Samsung Genio Qwerty is brilliant! The Qwerty keyboard makes it much easier to type. I first thought the buttons were a tiny bit stiff but they loosened up after about one hour.If you're a heavy texter like me, the Qwerty keyboard should work well for you. The radio is perfect for when you're out and about. The volume of the phone is perfect. It dosen't have many levels but it works well for me. If you're hung up on a Qwerty keyboard but you don't want a Samsung Genio Qwerty I would recommend a Samsung Chat. My mum has one and she lets me use it frequently. Its brill. One warning- On the box of the Samsung Genio Qwerty box, it shows a phone with yellow buttons (only the ones with numbers on them) you might get one with white buttons like me. You also might not get a yellow patterned cover but a white patterned cover. I don't think the Samsung company should've put on the box a phone with a yellow cover and yellow buttons but I guess I'll get over it. Overall I rate the Samsung Genio Qwerty with a mere three stars.

There are some things that I don't like about the phone however, and these are that the screen is VERY small, and the camera isn't that good but I suppose if you want a good camera, buy one! It is a good phone for texting but it did take me quite a while to get used to the keyboared, as I am used to bigger keys. I am getting a new phone shortly after i bought this so I can't really recomend it to you.

im really fussy with phones and i LOVE this phone! people who cant use this keypad must have HUGE fingers because it works great! im 16 and i lovee it. great phone and alot of people agree the people who dont like it must be snobs who only want a phone with a big price label and ignore the quality.

I was bought the samsung genio qwerty as a christmas gift and i am really disapointed if it wasn't a presant i would go out and buy a new phone. The problems I have experienced are texting the capitols get stuck on and i have trouble with the small buttons. Any brtowsing in the web is nearly impossible and facebook is very slow. I only text on my phone mostly so thats the real problem.
