Summary: Samsung has done a good job of packing just about every feature you could want into a compact, nimble device. It's not perfect but, with intuitive menus, a host of widgets and a decent browser, the Monte will satisfy hardcore social-networking fans.
Cons: Widgets are on the large side; interface is occasionally quite sluggish; poorly designed headphone jack.
Summary: The Samsung Monte Slider is a solid, intuitive little phone that shouldn't have bothered trying to add Internet features. Buy it because it's cheap and makes calls, not because it tries to do all this fancy modern stuff.
Cons: Internet connection is abominably slow; Screen is too small to read email or check Facebook; terrible music player.
Excerpt: The Samsung Monte is seen as one of the most affordable yet promising touchscreen handsets, sometimes even better than its other competition. Here is a detailed review so you can learn more about this mobile phone.

Read our review to find out if the Monte is a budget beauty or wireless wannabe. What we like The Monte's touchscreen interface offers three customisable homepages that you can drop various widgets into. It's not as slick as Android but it's not bad.
Conclusion: Here we arrive at the end of my review of the S5620 Monte, and although it has some bad points it has made quite an impression on me, so much so that I saw myself using it to text instead of my own phone. My overall opinion of the handset is mixed because of how good the good things are but also how poor the downsides are so what I will say for definite is that for the price which is roughly £110 – £130, I do think that as a consumer you get a lot for your money.
Excerpt: So, we have another mobile phone to review: the Samsung Monte S5620. Now Samsung has a lot of feature phones out in the market, there's the semi-low end Samsung CorbyPro , the mid-range Samsung Jet Ultra , and a pletora of low-end touchscreen mobile phones. SO where does the Samsung Monte fit in? It's somewhere between the Samsung Genio Slide and the Ultra Jet. Let's see how it stacks up against it brothers.
Excerpt: The Samsung Monte S5620 might not be as exciting a phone as the latest Apple iPhone or the latest Google Android super-phones but it’s an exciting phone nonetheless. After all, it’s extremely rare for a phone to boast of all the features of smartphones and still be priced low. The Monte falls into this category.
Conclusion: Among the other entertainment features, the mobile phone comes loaded with an integrated music player that can play MP3, WMA, and eAAC+ files; and a video playback that supports MP4, H.263, and H.264. The users can also tune into radio as stereo FM with RDS is provided in the handset. On top of that, handset is capable of social networking integration with live updates.
Pros: 3.0 inches TFT touch screen, 3G, Wi-Fi, Up to 16 GB memory, A-GPS support
