Samsung Eternity II SGH-A597 (AT&T)

The Good The Samsung Eternity II offers functional features and an eye-catching color scheme.

The Bad The Samsung Eternity II's call quality is just average. It barely improves on its predecessor, and its display is too small for a touch-screen phone.

The Bottom Line With a dated design and average performance, the Samsung Eternity II doesn't give us reasons to buy it over the original Eternity.

Samsung Eternity II SGH-A597 (AT&T)

When Samsung feels that it has a good idea, it's not shy about sharing it among U.S. carriers. The company certainly is doing that now with the various versions of the Samsung Galaxy S, but we also saw it spread the love back in late 2008 with four similar models of a midrange touch-screen phone. Sprint's Instinct, T-Mobile's Behold, Alltel's Delve, and AT&T's Eternity each put its own spin on the concept, but at the time we liked what they had to offer. And now, more than a year and a half later, Samsung is hoping to repeat that success by hitting up AT&T again with the Eternity II.
