This phone design looks good compare to other samsung model. It also looks like Nokia c5 but Nokia C5 keypad is spaceous and has a expandable micro sd card up to 16g. I will buy this phone only if this is a dual sim phone unfortunately this is not.
Anonymous, 29 Nov 2010The price is wrong. Its available for Rs.4950 in India (~82 Euros) Samsung would be foolish to... moreJust appeared from 1 country-wide store (in Russia) at the price of 6000 Rub = 150 Euro. You are getting nice treatment from Sammy
1st i saw this phone, i thought it was nokia because look similiar with nokia design.
Why Samsung copying Nokia? Nokias are fugly! They are so un-neat and boring.
This mobile phone rocks! I just bought it last weekend for Rs. 4800/- incl. taxes.
I recharged battery overnight - for more than 12 hrs. (Believe me, do this for first 3-4 times and you will get better results with your battery afterwards; i tried it on several handsets already. This is just personal opinion by the way!)
Battery is just awesome. Its been two days since the first full charge and only bar gone off from battery indicator (Four more left!!)
My usage as below (for two days):
Call time - 1 hr
Messages - 15
Listening to music - more than 1 hr.
Bluetooth handsfree connected - 3 hrs.
Other plus points (i mean at this price, seriously!)
Great BATTERY so far!
Great display - 2.2" screen, good color/brightness ratio. Comparatively good image rendition.
Great body - Slim, Steel back, handy and looks rich due to more metal.
Audio output (3.5 inch jack) - GREAT...use good quality headsets. Not the ones which come bundled! Don't compare the music quality to SE, Nokia phones which are dedicated to music only. They cost lot more!
Speaker output - Strong. You would probably not miss any call in crowded area also.
Call recording - Yes (this is standard feature in many phones but in few samsung metro series, this function was missing; i was irritated then!)
Camera - 3.2 MP at this price and that too very good quality. No red spots and noise seen when I copied photos to my laptop. I believe it is much better than many other 3/5 MP cameras.
Universal MicroUSB port for charging and connectivity (No SAMSUNG propriety port!)
Some Limitations (it doesn't matter much for me!)
Not so comfy keypad for people who likes to text continuously. Keys are plain and no bumps on keys for easy press. However, it still work nicely, once you get used to it.
No feature to create new customized themes (its available in other metro series)
MicroSD slot has no separate opening. Need to open battery cover.
No picture editor! (Can't rotate, resize the pictures). Rely on your PC.
No additional fonts (By this time Samsung should start providing font change option in non-touch handsets also)
Average video recording quality but workable at times.
I hope this provides good and comprehensive review to any of you who are looking forward to buy handset in the range of Rs. 5000/- or less.
