  • Pros: Neat looks, easy to use, compact

Samsung Monte in-depth review -

Mobile Choice UK
12 December 2011
  • Summary: Although the Samsung Monte looks higher-end, once its in your hand it feels a little flimsy. The lack of a virtual QWERTY keyboard meant we had to rely on a more traditional T9 keypad, which proved to be a tricky affair.
  • Pros: A feature list that belies its appealing price tag, including a capacitive touch-screen of a calibre rarely found at this price point.
  • Cons: Though it looks high-end from afar, upon closer inspection the Monte?s build does feel a little flimsy.

  • Conclusion: The Monte Slider is a good-looking basic phone, and it has a few nice features, at least on paper. The trouble is that they’re not very good, so it acts less as a gateway model to the smartphone universe, more of a gatekeeper likely to persuade you don’t really need this fancy stuff ‘cos it will...
  • 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: 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.
  • Pros: Gute Rufbereitschaft, Gutes Preis/Ausstattungsverhältnis, Großer SMS-Speicher
  • Cons: Keine digitale Qwertz-Tastatur, Schwer entfernbarer Akkudeckel, Mäßiger D-Netz-Empfang
