  • Excerpt: "...on two different models. Samsung repaired it for free (it was in warranty and a manufacturer fault)- what happened was that after switching the phone on, the screen would freeze so that it would not respond to any buttons being pressed- be they for an emergency call or to switch the phone off. The only other problem I can think of with this handset is the collection of dust where the join for the 'flip' bit is, but you get that with all flip phones ...
  • Pros: small, lightweight, high tech
  • Cons: same manufacturing fault twice

  • Excerpt: "...to the latest handsets that samsung are making, although for a clamshell design this is one of the best looking. The phone fares quite well to damage, the black and silver do not scratch easily in pockets, although marks, scratches and fingerprints can all be seen clearly in bright sunlight. I did manage to break the cover for the headphone port when trying to open it for the first time and snapped half of it off, which did need glueing back together. The ...
  • Pros: 3G, Expandable Memory, Battery Life

  • Excerpt: "...the provided data cable and Samsung PC Studio Software. It also features bluetooth (and a very nifty browser for exploring other peoples phones!) IrDA (Infared) and the 3G connection makes downloading from the web fast. Overall however I did stick to using it for a year and got used to the battery life, a nightly charge seemed to do the job although it still died several times late evening. The pictures still print nicely on a photo printer and ...

27 June 2006
  • Excerpt: "Well, it came to the time where i needed a new phone (Long story, but the other one ended up in a large amount of pieces....don't ask!) I thought i would probably give a contract a go, and strated looking around the vodafone website, with a list of features i wanted. Firstly clamshell, was having problems with normal phones unlocking in my pocket and making phone calls, bearable using pay as you go, but potentially a very expensive bill if not! Bluetooth, ...
  • Pros: Small, Has Bluetooth, Memory Card, 3G
  • Cons: Battery life a bit low, still in certain areas 3G signal is not great .
