i bought this phone 2 years ago. this was my first phone without any type of android.but the build in qwerty keypad is very helpful for me . becouse in long chatings its needed . one reason about this product i prefer to those peoples whom have kids in their house .becouse i have toople my phone many times but it dosnt effect on it.and its battery was aowsome .like listning songs , surfing internet all thats last long for 9 tp 10 hours of battery backup .if you use this phone without inturruption . but sometimes it hangs (very raraely) .but after restarting the phone (sometimes it need to removed the battery) it will get fine.the camera is just 2 mp cant take gud pics . and its standby time is very gud also. if someone is traveling for 2 days then no need to get the travel charger . and its style is very nice .but if you keypad very much then its flip thing goes from smooth to hard . and its very cheap in price . so ehat ate you waiting for.
If you want to surf the web and check emails without spending the extra money getting the most expensive phones, then you should consider getting this phone. I got this phone for free from Att, and I used this phone for two years without it ever giving me any problems like the other phones I have had. Since I could get a data plan that costed less because this phone was not technically a smart phone, I could do everything that an Iphone could do without paying the price when the monthly bills came, which is awesome.
The full keyboard and touch screen adds the easy of using a touchscreen with the lack of mistakes that come with having a real keyboard.
Overall I think that this is a great phone and I would highly recommend it to anyone who needs a cheap phone that will last them a long time.
Samsung GT-B3410 mobile phone is a phone that has many features.With a QWERTY keyboard that facilitates and accelerates to create short messages.The phone also features a touchscreen that spoil our fingers.With a long standby time that is nearly a month of 28 days (670 hours)
I bought this phone about a year ago when the contact of my old phone ran out. I decided to buy it because I couldn't decide weather I wanted a touch screen or one with a keyboard. Luckily for me I managed to find a phone with both! This phone can be used as just as touchscreen as the qwerty keyboard can be slid out when you want to use it.
However once I got the phone it was not the amazing phone that I thought that I was going to get! First of all it is quite a big and bulky phone which is not exactly what I wanted as it bulks out your pockets when it is in there. Although there is some good aspects to it being a bulky phone as I have dropped it a dew times and it remained resilient.
Another problem I had with it was that a few months after I got it the sliding part of the phone broke making it really hard to get the keyboard out. Also I found that the touch screen sometimes didn't work properly and I had to put quite a lot of pressure on it to make it work. Then sometimes when the phone was in my pocket it would unlock by itself and ring someone without me knowing which could lead to some awkward situations!
As for the working of the phone it is quite simple to use as you can drag the apps out of a sidebar, such as facebook and notes, and use them when you want before dragging them back to prevent them clogging up the homescreen. Then there is a setting you can use the that when you slide out the qwerty keyboard the screen for sending a text pops up automatically which can be really handy!
The camera is not that brilliant quality and the phone can only store a small amount of photos and video so I was not that impressed with this aspect of the phone.
There are ups and downs to this phone but overall I don't think it was worth the money I paid for it and was a bit disappointed.
I got this phone as a birthday present of my boyfriend last year. I originally had an LG mobile that slided in a similar way to reveal the full Qwerty keyboard, but it broke and i was gutted. So when i unwrapped this samsung i was made up with it. As mentioned above it has a full Qwerty keyboard which is quite useful when you want to write a text message quickly or just cant be bothered with the touch screen. The one i had was on T-Mobile which is usually referred to as not a very good network but were i live it picked up a very good one and everything seemed instant such as internet browsing and sending messages. It also has a very good camera that take high quality photos, well i thought so anyway. The samsung has a memory card slot so the memory can be extended which i strongly recommend if you like to listen/download music on your mobile phone. Even though i loved this phone i can honestly say i have had many and there was nothing really original, it has its own messenger the same as iphone and blackberrys but what i found was that everybody had iphones or blackberrys and not samsungs with the messenger so ift was just a useless icon on my screen.
Overall it is a good phone with alot packed in it for the small build. Ideal for a teenager or prehaps an older person who wants a simple touchscreen phone to start them on the journey of updated technology.
This phone was bought as I got bored of owning an LG Cookie. I paid around a hundred pounds for it and I honestly don't think was worth the money. I had it for around 6 months or more and the thing that attracted me to buy it was the querty keypad as I am a big texter, I liked that it would enable me to type very quickly.
The software and features on the phone were VERY basic and the messaging programmes it boasts about on the packaging were either very basic, not thought out or just didn't work! The instant messenger was terrible! I couldn't link up my online I.M account and I couldn't make a new new one. I found it hopeless!
The only thing other than the qwerty keypad that was good was the battery life. It lasted quite well.
Happy ending is that I went to Leeds fest and the phone disappeared (stolen or lost, I don't know!). I have a much better phone, now!
I finally decided to upgrade my very reliable sony ericsson after years of not having to. I ended up purchasing this phone for £90, based on the fact that, as well as black it came in another cuter colour, white and pink.
I also loved that it had a touch screen and a qwerty keyboard. Being able to alternate between the two is something i really like about the phone. Although, finding the keyboard quicker to type out a message than the touch screen i personally think the buttons are a little stiff to press.
The camera quality, compared to older and cheaper phones i believe, not to be up to scratch. Yes you have the option of zoom, effects, and different shooting modes(single,multi,mosaic,frame) but these options are pointless without quality photos. And if like me you like being able to take lots of photos on your mobile this phone isnt for you, unless your willing to buy a memory card as this phone has a tiny amount of space for media.
The battery life is awful. I've turned the screen brightness to the minimum, some days i dont text/call much, i never use any of the featues(camera,bluetooth etc.) and it lasts about a day.
The phone does have some nice featues, the widget colomn down the side of the screen that you can keep a notepad, calender, alarm clock etc. to use quickly and easily when desired is handy. There's also the option of reading a conversation through text between only you and a person of your choice instead of scrolling through all your texts to find them.
But overall i believe there are better phones available at cheaper prices and so would not recommend buying this phone.
recently bought this phone from argos and i love it . Was extremely cheap the phone itself is for someone who wants a basic phone that is really good and easy to text on . the screen is a bit like an iphone screen it moves depending on which way you have the phone . It doesnt have apps like some of the smart phones do but if you are looking for something practical that is simply easy to use and something you dont have to worry about due to expense reasons then this is the phone for you . I recommend looking online to see whats deals you can get price wise even though the phone is cheap anyway i think everyone can say they would prefer the cheapest deal still . The only negative side is that it can sometimes go a little bit slow when using the centre button to scroll up and down , but nothing too bothersome. For people who use social networking sites facebook is shown on your main screen which can be accessed quickly aswell as myspace and other sites. 2 games are available to play on but are time limited meaning after so long you would have to pay for the game if you wanted to continue being able to play on it which i found a shame as most phones have atleast 1 free game .
positive things about this phone are:
good camera considering its a cheap phone /camcorder
I love Samsung phones and always have despite originally being a Nokia-Girl!
However, I am not incredibly au-fait with phones...know how to call, text, bluetooth, take photos....the general but can do what the majority of people require out of a phone.
I originally bought mine on the strength of it having a qwerty keyboard as, as an audio typer by profession, I thought this would be much easier and quicker to use. I was wrong. For me, the keys were far too small to type quickly however my 7 year old..who is a 2-finger typist.. found it very easy to use and easier than a normal mobile text button style phone.
The phone is, however, very sleek and incredibly stylish and held its battery charge very well despite incessant texting and camera use. If you are NOT particularly a quick typist this would be great and if you like having extra gadgets and functions but can't afford an iphone then I think this would definitely be the phone for you.
Mine...?? Well, my 7 year old is now the coolest kid in his school having a Samsung GT B3410.
I recently bought this phone from my friend for 30 quid in brand new condition, and yet i still feel that was much too high a price for this awful, awful phone, let alone the £118.99 that its selling for. The phone lock button is indisinguishable from the voice recorder button next to it, and even when locked, it is annoyingly easy for it to unlock itself in your pocket, leading to me opening my phone to find I've phoned about 20 different people. The internet likes to give up working after a few pages worth, and sometimes when on facebook it resets itself when you try to write a status/comment. However, there are a few redeeming points, the audio quality, and the web browser (when working) are quite good quality, and the battery life is reasonable. Its a good size phone, but these few small postive points in no way make up for rubbish aspects
I recently got this phone when going on contract. What attracted me to this phone was the Qwerty keyboard and touch screen features. As this was my first touch screen phone it took me a while to get used to the phone.
Once used to it I found it really useful and convienient to have a touch screen. However when I bought this phone it did not come with a wire to connect to my laptop/PC. Im not sure if this is with all phones or just mine but I would have prefered the phone to come with a cable. Also the phone has bad memory capability so I bought a memory card to put into this.
The qwerty keyboard is very useful but the buttons are not well spaced out so you cannot type mega fast without making a few spelling mistakes. The sound on this phone is actually really good. It plays songs really loud and I find myself using my phone more then my MP3 player.
Overall this phone was a good buy but has some aspects that take some adgusting to.
LOOK, CLARITY, EFFECTS!
To start with the negatives, I got very bored of this phone after 3 months. Although the keyboard and touch-screen combination is a brilliant idea, it does come with downsides which put me off straight away.
The keyboard buttons are really hard to press which makes typing quickly a stuggle, so try in the shop before buying. The touch-screen is also not at its best as you have to press fairly hard to get the keys to work. The battery life is ruined on mine after dropping it onto a carpet once. The back always comes off itself and had made the battery weak. The screen is also too small to text easily on. Also, everytimeI turn it on and off again, the time on my phone, goes back 10 minutes, so I never have the correct time. I also hate the back of it. Its a tacky spotty design, and makes the phone look cheap and nasty. When ringing numbers which are '....press 1... press 2... back to the main menu press 9' numbers and awful to ring on this phone, the touch screen number-pad is hard to use when in a call. The loud speaker is a horrible rattly sound and isn't worth using. Mine B3410's bluetooth has also never worked and will not pick up or send anything which is a massive pain. The phone takes a long time to load up once its been switched on.
But the few good points, the screens clear, and easy to read and do general operations on. The 3 buttons on the bottom of the screen are quick and nice to use. Sending text messages is extreamely quick, the camera is very good considering its measley mega-pixel. Many shortcuts are on the keyboard such as, create message, send, up, down, left, right, enter, back, and mute.
On the sides of the phone they're buttons and holes such as, volume, charger cable, ipod headphones hole, camera button, record, and lock.
Sliding the phone to the side for the keypad to appear is easy and isn't sticky like other queirty phones.
The phone has defult wallpapers for its locked stage.
2 games; PyramidBloxx and Brain Challange Vol2
Google and internet
Seeing as you could get a Blackberry curve for an extra £20 this phone seems a rip off. At £94 I was NOT impressed.
CAMERA. INN DETIAL!
RUBBISH MEMORY SYSTEM! I can hold 10 photos and 2 songs.
The camera's VERY clear. It has 4 (touch) buttons on the bottom. 'Mode, settings, Brightness, Album'.
MODE: Camera or camcorder
SETTINGS: Shooting Mode (Single shot, Multi-shot, Mosaic shot, frame shot), Resolution (differnt numbers), Timer (Off, 3Sec, 5Sec, 10Sec), White balance (Auto, Daylight, Incandesent, Flourecent, Cloudy), Effects (No, Grey, Negative, Sepia, Emboss, Sketch, Antique, Moonlight, Fog), View-finder mode (Icons, No Icons, Guidelines), More settings (Quality, Exposure Metering, Single shot mode, Shutter sound, Night mode, Defult storage, Defult name).
BRIGHTNESS: Up and down, from 1 too 7.
ALUBUM: Takes you too your photos.
Its a nifty phone with many faults and few advantages. For a short term (but expensive) phone, i'd chose this. OVERPRICED.

I bought this phone 3 months ago from eBay for $ 102, after I "accidentally" stepped on and destroyed my last phone.
I fell in love with the elegant design of this phone, black is always elegant to me. In addition, of course a wide touchscreen that makes me more impressed. But after i get the phone on my hand, the screen is not as wide as i thought.
I like the QWERTY keypad on this gadget, because I can type pretty fast massage. However, the keypad is too small for "Gigantic" size finger. I sometimes have to press it with my fingertips.
The phone is equipped with an integrated music player that supports most file formats and, features provided include a stereo FM radio. I can record my favorite songs from FM radio with ease. Simply by pressing a shortcut key. This phone also features a 2-megapixel camera, but I rarely use it.
I often get messages from my friends who say, "Hey, what's wrong? Why you called me". And I do not remember when I called him.
Yeah, this phone is often spent my credit because of poor locking feature. When I put it in my pocket or purse, this phone will call my friends when pressed with other objects. And I could fall into poverty because of this. Just kidding. I hope Samsung can fix the lock button on this phone.
hmmm .. Over all, this is a pretty good phone to phone for $ 100. Worth enough to spend $ 100 of yours for this phone if you indeed people whom frequently use the message feature.
I bought this phone after a lot of research on the internet to see what people thought of it because I needed a mobile with specific features. And I'm glad to say the Samsung GT delivers most of them. What I can say is that it's definitely very similar to the Corby Pro but with a lower price tag that made it far more attractive to me. You can get in in black, blue or white, but I wanted the black one, it just fits my style...
The main addons you'll get if you buy this phone are an mp3 player with a standard jack for your headphones, a bluetooth connection, a micro SD slot that allows you to expand the internal memory and of course the awesome qwerty keyboard. No wireless though. The phone is incredibly easy to use with the possibility to add widgets of the apps you use the most and the display offers a very good quality. Talking about quality the cam that ships with the Samsung GT is a 2 Megapixel with several effects and regulations for taking shots during the night. Unfortunately no flash is provided. Also, the battery of the phone is good, but not the best out there and listening to your playlists can drain it in a matter of a few hours while the phone is capable of staying in stand-by for days...
I no longer own this phone as I recently caved into peer pressure a got a blackberry, but I thought it necessary to write a review as the phone is very good.
I could not decide whether to buy a touch screen or regular phone. I discovered this from carphone warehouse at only £90 and though it was a bargain. The main aspect that attracted me to this phone was the combination of touch screen and QWERTY keypad. A QWERTY keypad basically slides out from under the screen of the phone and allows the user to effectively have a full, physical key board, like the ones found of a laptop or computer...only smaller.
The phone is very easy to use. I have a tendency to never read the instructions on new toys so just dove straight in. I got to grips with the phone almost instantly. It did help that I have had a Samsung phone before, but even if you have not the phone is very easy to get the hang of. Being touch screen makes everything easier as you literally just poke whatever function you need.
The phone was very reliable all the time I had it. The battery life was very good considering the fact it was touch screen (especially compared to the blackberry).
As with any phones these days there are countless functions on the phone, half of which I never used or knew existed. There is a 2mp camera, which is decent but not amazing, mp3 player which had good sound quality, voice recording, internet, games, widgets (which are shortcuts to access things on your wallpaper) and many other basics such as calculator etc. An excellent feature of the phone is that is has a 3.5mm headphone jack which allows the connection of nearly any headphone.
As said earlier the keyboard slides out from under the screen. This means that the phone is a little thicker than the average phone but only minutely. The screen is 2.6 inches and fully touch screen with three actual button at the bottom which can be used to cancel things, answer and end phone calls.
The only downside is that the screen can be a tad un-responsive occassionally, but this is not a massive problem.
This phone is an excellent combination of fun touch screen and the practical keyboard, which is especially handy for those who txt a lot. The phone has dropped in price since I purchased it and can probably be picked up for around £70 excluding top up. For the price I defiantly recommend this phone to pretty much anyone.
