Samsung GT B3210 Genio
Advantages: has everything i need, good price
Disadvantages: camera delay causes dimming
After not getting on with a touch screen phone I went in for a model which included buttons! After a lot of searching and price comparisons I finally came across the Samsung Genio Qwerty. In short it's appearance is not unlike a blackberry, albeit a cheaper version with less qualities to it. None the less I knew that all I'd really need is a camera and just text and call options. All of which you get, plus a little bit extra.
I bought this on Amazon for just under £60. The price including a battery charger, earphones, a manual and 3 different phone backs. One white, one black and the other with a little pattern on it. Unfortunately it didn't come with a USB cord so I had to purchase this online, a bit of a hindrance as I wanted to upload my photos straight away but the cost of this extra piece wasn't to expensive.
As I mentioned it isn't dis-similar to a blackberry in appearance, in fact someone mistakenly thought it was one. The layout of the buttons is in a qwerty style with the numbers having a white background. They are really quite small so people with larger fingers may struggle a bit with only pushing one button at a time. To connect a wire there is a little clip which opens up and the volume settings are placed on the side.
There aren't many standard ringtones but you can download your own or use songs from the music player. When listening to your tunes you must make sure you are in the music player section rather than in the 'files' as otherwise it won't play them one after the other. It has a built in fm radio as well as camera, games and internet. This loads surprising quickly!
The battery life is quite lengthy, however if you don't notice how much is left it doesn't give you much of a warning to when it's died. The camera is ok, however it does seem to have a slight delay on it and the colour also appears dimmer when saved.
I've had this phone a few months and haven't had any problems with it. It still looks in great condition, with no scratches showing. For the price I think I've got a great deal, it has everything I want and need and would recommend it if you don't want all the sometimes unnecessary apps. Great value for money!
