Summary: We like the Samsung B3310's social-media functions, and the camera software is admirably fast. But the quirky design doesn't gel brilliantly with the user interface, and typing on the Qwerty keyboard quickly becomes frustrating. The B3310 is very reasonably priced but, in terms of the user experience, it's hard to recommend.
Conclusion: We really struggled to do much more than the basics with the Samsung B3310; for calling, texting and listening to music it does everything you need to a fair standard. But for more advanced functions like web browsing and social networking, you'd be better off opting for a handset like the INQ Chat 3G or even a budget Android handset like the LG GW620 InTouch Max. These have larger screens and better browsers for a similar price.
Excerpt: The Corby trend started by Samsung last year has seen an impressive worldwide spread over the next few months since its launch. The standard Corby handset has received a large number of variations with the purpose of satisfying as many users’ needs as possible. Samsung B3310 is a cheap slider with a non-conventional look, which targets youngsters. The device further includes a wide range of socializing services such as: MySpace, Facebook and Flickr.
Pros: Besides the fact that in features a full QWERTY keyboard, Samsung B3310 is offered at a very convenient price, which should make those looking for a "funny" phone to choose it. Also, the device has a more than decent battery and various social network services, which make the phone more appealing. The 2-megapixels camera is also a strong point of the phone.
Cons: I think the most annoying thing about the phone is the small display, as well as the little customization that a user can make. The low ergonomics of the phone keypad is also something that you should take into consideration before buying the slider.

Summary: The Samsung B3310's oddly positioned numeric keys makes for an unusual device, and mean that it's awkward to dial phone numbers with the slider closed. This compact and quirky mobile phone possesses a good keyboard and a decent screen, but its lack of 3G connectivity is hard to swallow.
Pros: Quirky design, comfortable QWERTY keyboard, sharp display, fast UI, shortcut bar on home screen
Cons: No 3G, no advanced features, it's awkward to dial numbers while in portrait mode, position of ?/Sym key
Conclusion: The life of a mobile phone depends on the strength of its battery. If the battery is powerful, the handset can last for long years. Samsung B3310 uses standard Li-Ion 800 mAh battery, which is very common and renowned battery among many mobile phones. When the phone is in stand by mode, it can provide talk time of around 380 hours. In the normal talk time mode, the battery of the phone can run up to 5 hours.
