Newest Review: ... is easy to see unless in direct sunlight. A disappointment with this phone is Samsung's lack of on-line widgets/resources why put a widget... more
Not a smartphone, but its good! Here's why...
Samsung GT S5620
Member Name: trundley
Samsung GT S5620
Advantages: Good design, Constant strong signal, Clean cut operating system
Disadvantages: Poor camera (2 Mega Pixel), Laggy operating system, headphones must be plugged in to listen to radio
This is most definately not a smatphone but a feature-packed phone. The design itself it actually quite nice and can come in several different colours:
Black and grey
Black and orange
The operating system on the phone (Touchwiz) is very laggy at time and is generally poor. The design of the operating system is very nice though.
The main "homescreen" has 3 different panels where you can add different widgets to each and swap between each of them by swiping either left or right. More widgets can be downloaded from Samsungs online site, although this must be done on the phone. When going into the menu you will get a grid view of all the different items available. This also has 3 different panels of items to choose from and is navigated in the same way. Its all very nice and clean save for poor performance.
Price wise this phone is very good value for money and its very durable. I've dropped it a couple of times and the pavement has probably come off worse when you clean the dirt off of the phone. Another good thing is that i always seem to be able to get a very good connection where my other friends on the same network (O2) cannot. I dont know how this works whether its the design or the reciever in the phone, i don't know.
Overall; its a good phone for a first time user or someone who isnt technically adept with phones. Its lasted me over a year and i am yet to have any technical issues with it.
Summary: Very good for first time users, especially those who are not technically adept.
