Samsung Monte Review: In Depth
26 February 2011
Excerpt: According to Samsung, the Monte is a high-end handset at an affordable price. You can pick it up for around £120 on pay-as-you-go and on monthly contracts starting at £10/month. 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.
Excerpt: It looks expensive, but pick the up and it feels insubstantial and flimsy. We like the updated TouchWiz interface, but the lack of a QWERTY keyboard hampers the experience. The Monte’s features belie its price tag: a three-inch capacitive touch-screen, A-GPS, Wi-Fi and HSDPA internet connectivity and social networking shortcuts.
Excerpt: There are many phones that try to blind us with science and attempt to push the envelope to find yet more uses and functionality for our pocket pals. And there are some phones that really just want to be phones. Somewhere between two is the Samsung Monte Slider, which does a pretty good job of being a neat little phone, but comes a cropper when it tries to get above itself.
Pros: Small and light, good build quality
Cons: Slow internet access, fuzzy screen, poor music player, slow processor, no data cable, no 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.
Pros: Easy to use interface and menu system, Solidly built and light, Only £40
Cons: Internet connection is abominably slow, Screen is too small to read email or check Facebook, Terrible music player
Summary: Mittlerweile tummeln sich auf dem Markt immer mehr Touchscreen-Modelle, die durch attraktive Preise locken. Allerdings handelt es sich bei fast allen Geräten keineswegs um iPhone-Alternativen, da das Ausstattungsniveau oftmals recht überschaubar ist. Das S5620 bildet da eine rühmliche Ausnahme, soviel sei schon mal vorweggenommen.
Excerpt: For selvom de fleste har højere opløsning, så betyder de mange megapixel faktisk overarbejde for telefonen. Den CCD, og ikke mindst det objektiv, der sidder i en telefon, er ikke i stand til at udnytte fem eller otte megapixel, som jo ikke er unormalt.
