I recently just upgraded my phone as it was that time again on my contract and it couldn't have come sooner my old phone had gone bust and didnt want to even turn on anymore !!
I went into my local three store and due to me being on a cheap contract i was showed a very limited number of phones to upgrade to.I had looked online to see what was out there and decided that i liked the look of the samsung and the guy in the shop told me of the ones available it was the best one.I was very excited to get the phone home and got it out and started to have a play with it.The phone is glossy black and has a nice large screen 2.8 inches in size which is the same as alot of the digital cameras out there so you can see everything nice and clearly.
I have never had a touch screen phone before and im really impressed at how easy it is to use and being a texter rather than a talker i was worried that i might not be able to text like i normally do (super fast) and its actually incredibly easy the only thing i have found is that due to it being a new phone the dictionary is not full of all my usual lingo...lol
The phone has a new feature on the phone which is a widget.Basically this is a bar on the front of the menu screen that you can add different functions of the phone ton so you can access them more easily and yet again very easy to use with the touch screen.It does have set programmes on the widget which you can remove altogether or just add new ones to.
The phone has bluetooth,a built in fm radio,music player and a camera.The camera is 3.2 megapixels and has built in smile detection which is a great little function as it automatically looks for a smile in the photograph.I love this as i often use the camera to take pics of my two lovely boys so having a nice camera was important to me.I read another review saying that they could not get the pictures on the screen as a wallpaper and i agree its not the easiest of processes but it can be done.You go through the settings option on the phone and then display & light, then onto wallpaper and there you can select what image you want.This is where it gets tricky.There is then a white box that appears on the pic and it takes some playing with but you need to minimise the box so the whole of your pic goes into the box and thenit will set on the screen as the full pic !!
Believe me it took a lot of playing about with the phone and frustration but it can be done !!
The phone has alot of little features and as i use it more and more i find them !! I have personalised my phone from the wallpaper right to the font that i write my texts in.Its nice to be able to make it my own.
These are some of the phone specifications but if you needed to know anything else i would advise going onto the three website.
350 standby minutes
210 talktime minutes
width 54.8 mm
The phone does come with the skype application too even though i have never used it as of yet.
I am very impressed with this phone and on my £15 a month contract i didnt even have to pay for the phone which is excellent....Highly reccommended !!
Summary: lovely little phone !!
