I bought this mobile yesterday. I rarely find honest and clear "user" reviews of products on any site for phones so decided to write this piece.
Name of the phone in India: Samsung Guru Dual 35, Model # E2152,
This is a dual sim phone and you can change the outgoing call using the sim switch button on right hand side but when you are on a call, the other sim is not reachable for callers. Please note if you want to receive calls on both sims or conference them, you will have to buy a costlier samsung "DUOS" series phone. However, I think you this is good phone for starters.
You will have to carefully see while calling which sim is active as the sim switch button on right edge of phone can be pressed with a gentle force. If your eyesight is weak, you can change the wallpapers for both sims so you know which one is active. However, the small color highlights on phone signal icons on top left indicate which sim is active at the time. By "Acive" I mean active to dial the #, both sims remain active to receive a call.
The back cover opens not by pushing the cover but by lifting it from bottom up. As phone has got glossy feel to it, it shows up fingerprints immediately upon touching but can be wiped easily. One of the biggest plus of Samsung phones are their battery. I had used one before and the 850 mah battery would last 3 days after heavy usage. Now, this phone as 1000 mah battery so I am expecting it to last about 4-5 days with heavy usage.
There is no phone call recording feature on the phone. You can however record FM or sounds. You can back up your phone book. Where does it store, it I am not sure as I have not yet done it. In India, keypad is formatted for hindi fonts too and you can type and send hindi SMS to your friends as easily as english. Unlike chinese dual sim phones which have separate inbox for both sims, this phone has a common inbox/outbox for messages but your messages are tagged 1 and 2 to differentiate.
There's a small but bright torch LED which gets activated by pressing the side button key for 2 seconds. Wireless FM is a great feature. The reception of FM is great as compared to wired FM phones where you often have to adjust wire to get good reception.
I have not yet checked the camera but will do so later. As the screen resolution is not good, camera images may not look good on this phone but more on it later when I test it. Also not checked are internet features, bluetooth messenger, facebook, twitter, games, image editor etc.
Prior to this phone, I was using Samsung Metro S3310. Screen size on this phone is 2 inches but resolution of screen is mediocre as compared to Metro S3310. Fonts of the phone are thicker and so far I am not able to find a setting to change them. I found this odd in beginning but now I am getting used to it. Because of thick fonts, rubber keypad and mediocre resolution, its intial an impression of a low end phone. However the rubber used seems of better quality than Nokia uses. I have seen Nokia phones keypad swell from inside but have not seen so with Samsung yet.
The response time delay on phone is almost similar to Metro S3310. Samsung phones in particular have this problem that even if the call has ended, they will display the notification "call ended" for a couple of seconds before returning to main window. I think its a software issue with all of them. Also, like most of Samsung phones, you can't see the time when you are on call and can only access very limited features of phone like phone book and messages. Nokia is better in these things. Also, I was not able to play the 3gp files, I could play on Metro S3310.
I sold my earlier S3310 phone because its microphone quality was bad and it's location at the bottom edge of the phone made things worse. Lot of people complained of not hearing me while talking and I often had to shout. In this phone, Samsung has corrected the location of microphone by bringing it on bottom front edge of phone. Another welcome change is you can store data received from bluetooth directly to the memory card which was not possible with Metro S3310.
If you want to know anything specific from above please mail me at email@example.com I would probably check this email only this week to answer and discard it later.

Its just a day old and I love it. It has amazing function and the price is good. The keypad is made of rubber and the dual sim inter changes perfectly. The only thing is that it does not have usb cable to connect to PC. But with bluetooth and downloads from the net its okay. it also has a lot of games that came with it. yo

Is this better than Nokia C2-00?
Your opinion please?
In Champ i tried to play mp4 HQ 240*320,it showd up an error,but same file in my friends 2700nok, worked it, so i dnt think E2152 WILL bare hq mp4.
How the keypad performance? Is it plastic or rubber type? Is it hard to press and prone to mistake? I have nokia 2690 and the keypad really difficult to type.
People who really bought the phone & used it ,,,, can they tell how does it record voice calls ? auto record ? or do i have to check the menu before calling or answering every call to record it ? & does it give Beeps every miute or it doesn,t make sound while recording the voice call ????
pleaz answer ,,, Thanks
the phone is great ,,, but i need to make sure of that option before i buy it .
