4 July 2013
Summary: Muy buen telefono, hace exactamente lo que dice que hace. aunque lo encuentro un poco lento. .........................................................................................................................................................
Excerpt: Don't understand what problems the others have with the internet, it works fine for me. 3g and wifi... battery is fine once you tweak it a bit. I use mine about 2-3 days. I use "2x Battery -" so it shuts off 3g and wifi when its in standby mode. I have no problems with speed. Seems good enough for android 2.3.6. Of course some phones are a lot faster but then again this is priced much lower. I bought it used for only €100.
Pros: Durabilty, Price
Cons: Low internal memory(150mb), Camera only 3.2mp
Excerpt: A very good quality smartphone, with a rugged feeling and outdoor tools (lamp, GPS, etc...) Battery life is the great cons, because live only 4 hours with full use off internet facilities. The WIFI receptor is low end for sure because even with a full power net the sinal is always low. To review these items. But in general is a very good phone and is IP67 certified.
Pros: Very good built quality, Large screen, Very precise touch screen, Good resolution, Fast processor, IP67 certified
Summary: a good phone. my first smart phone good and solid although the back seems a little flimsy it does the job i want it to do quite well i had to download a flash light app that uses the camera flash the light is affective i did beef it up with screen protector rugged case and shock sock as my work is on a building site one problem was that i have to reboot quite often as it loses connection for no reason and has to have a reboot (eg turn it off and back on) so it will...
Summary: I had a specific requirement for my new phone as we are going cruising in our boat for a couple of years. I have a SIM from a company designed for our type of travel. I therefore wanted an unlocked and reasonably well featured phone. This fits the bill quite well and it seems reliable enough so far. Crucially, it doesn't have a load of prelaoded software that I don't want. It is even Facebook free!
Summary: Ideal fro my wife due its rugged structure, dust and damp proof specification. One snag though, when a message is received (or call) there is no reminder if you miss the short tone unlike other manufacturers who's models bleep every few minute until the message is read.
Summary: This is my first smart phone and so far I am very impressed. It's rugged and water proof construction has already proved it's worth in the hands of my 2 year old boy, who dunked it in a cup of tea within a day of me getting it. I would have preferred a rubberised case, more along the lines of Samsung's B2100 Solid Extreme (my previous phone), but that would have made it a bit too chunky for what people expect from a smart phone.
Summary: Great phone for email, text, calendar, but can drop calls. Not easy to answer calls quick either(but this might be just me). Good impact resistant body, but screen still vulnerable ( this is my second S5690 first one dropped from desk onto hard floor glass down, cracked screen). Have used in rain,appears to be resistant to water ingress. Access to some great apps, never thought I would use, weather , news etc, have even shopped on line.
Excerpt: "...Smart-Phone any time soon..... Until now.....because Samsung Galaxy now offer a phone much tougher and more robust than any of its competitors and there is every chance that this time around, I may just have found myself a phone that is almost entirely Sparky-proof!!! First up, this is not a pretty phone. It is not designed to look all sparkly and girly; in point of fact this is the All-Terrain Vehicle of Smart-Phones. It looks like a tough phone, ...
Pros: Built to take a bit of punishment and still keep on fighting . . . . .
Cons: I have a habit of breaking phones . Not on purpose, it is just that I can be a bit clumsy when tran
