Mine is 4 years old, and the best phone for me! It only be sad to don't record video atleast at VGA or HD. It only do video at 320p. But thats ok. It's sad that samsung don't do a refresh of this phone with proper camera, wifi, bigger screen, but maintening the keypad. I guess the segment of keypad phones it's all the same, I'have been 4 year long to find this phone
I had two of these phones. They didn't last long, but they were probably the best phones I ever had. If Vodafone New Zealand ever start selling them again I will go and buy several of them in a a heartbeat.

Just a suggestion.
A blackberry Bold with its 3.2 megapixel camera produces 2.1mb sized photos.
The s5611 with its " 5.0 " megapixel camera produces 600kb sized photos.
The idiots at samsung made is so that every photo taken is applied to a jpeg compressor with Ultra Low setting, the results are inferior photographs
The buttons on the phone are also impossible to use when writing a text, neighboring keys are too easy to press accidentally because each row share the same plastic strip.
Ironically, the S5611 fails in both the departments that prompted me to get it in the first place.
I just wanted a non touch screen / button phone with a 5.0megapixel camera. Was it so hard samsung?
Macbeth, 20 May 2018Can you record video on this (regardless of the resolution) ?Yes, it has a Camcorder option.
mruczek, 21 Jul 2017Lol, it's not possible. Even if it was, 256mb of RAM is not enough for Android :Plol Maybe you should read before you speak. This is not an android phone! It's based on a custom Samsung operating system.
Hi, is there a possibility to flash Android on the GT-S5611? The Web is full of articles about an upgrade to Android 7, but there is not a single article/mention about how to get rid of the Samsung OS and install any Android OS on the GT-S5611.
