Conclusion: The Samsung Soul is fairly straightforward, but that’s what impressed me. It’s by no means a do-all phone: there’s no GPS and no Wi-Fi, for starters. It just works well and provides an enjoyable user experience.
Conclusion: Performance While all the phone's key features - camera, music player and ultra-fast internet speeds - perform to an excellent standard, the Soul's call quality fails to reach the same standards, and the video-recording capabilities also appear to have been neglected. Battery life Considering slider phones tend to have a shorter battery life than their candybar and clamshell peers, the 360 minutes talktime and 280 hours standby is more than adequate.
Summary: After much fanfare and hype over one of Samsung's flagship fashion devices, the Samsung U900 Soul (dubbed for its Spirit Of ULtra moniker) graced our labs just a few days ago. While we did manage to get a quick feel of the Soul's DaCP Magical Touch interface and the 5-megapixel camera earlier on with our Mobile World Congress sneak peek , there's more to be discovered with the Soul Ultra series, and without further ado, we present the Ultra series' swan song device for...
Excerpt: I was fascinated by the Soul’s navigation technology the moment I saw it, and even more so when I got the opportunity to test it for the first time. Of course, that was before I tested other handsets such as the LG KF600 . But I’m not here to do a comparison of handsets… yet. So here’s what I have to say about the U900 Soul, which is part of Samsung’s Ultra series of handsets. Form Factor The U900 Soul slider is definitely a good-looking handset, no argument there.
Summary: The reception quality put up by the U900 is in line with other Samsung-branded devices. The ringtone volume is quite decent, as it can be heard in various environments. The silent alert is average strength-wise, no significant improvements have been made here.
Samsung’s flagships have always boasted a pretty decent price/quality ratio and never had direct competition in the field of slider-type phones.
