On usual tradition each new model Samsung completes under the full program. SGH-2400 has not become an exception. Only, that is not present at this phone, so it is of support of protocol WAP. But Samsung SGH-2400 has by all necessary for the telephone of the business class by possibilities (vibrocall, lithium - ionic battery, clock, alarm clock, calendar, organizer, dictophone, voice gang etc.), has very refined appearance and weighs less than 100. At this model high contrast, well readable display. A few facts: the standard GSM 900/1800, operating time in a waiting mode - up to 85 hours, talk mode - up to 240 min, dimensions: 108*458*18,9 mm, weight - 90 г. The active cover reliably hides the keyboard. The fans to separate from the telephone different details can be quiet - besides, it simply jumps out from grooves and elementary is put back, the microphone is located on the body of phone, and it signifies, that "breaking" of a cover of any unpleasant consequences will not entail. Not so capacious accumulator - suffices it a maximum for two days, but about the more capacious telephone will weigh more. The sliding antenna perfectly helps when unstable reception of a signal. Dynamic quiet, but on full loudness is audible quite decently. The menu is very simple and logical. It is possible to master without any instruction. The access to a dictophone is traditionally inconveniently organized: that something to note is necessary to enter in the menu, as "hot key" is not stipulated. Besides during talk the dictophone does not work at all. Good phone of the business class with all necessary functions and good ratio "price/quality".
The following are just the main features, the SGH2400 is a great phone, and certainly reccomended by me! The SGH2400 has voice activated dialling. This comes in useful when you can't remember a certain persons number, or if you simply can't be bothered keying the number in! The voice dialling function rarely messes up, except when the battery life is failing. It only weighs 90grams! You can hardly feel it in your pocket, and I often find myself checking all my pockets before I find it! It's tiny size also helps me to feel like I've lost it- dimensions are 108 x 45 x 18.8mm ! It has a decent vibrating alert, available on silent mode or accompanied by a ringtone. It is quite powerful too if you consider its tiny size. The active flip (i.e. opening and closing flip answers and ends calls) is very reliable, and never seems to falter. It is Data and Fax compatible, although these features are never needed by the typical user. I have never used them anyway! It's battery life is 155 mins talktime, 55-60 hours standby, which is once again pretty good considering its tiny size. Some people may disagree with me here, but for a battery this small you can't complain! A Handsfree kit is included as standard with the phone, which in my experience is the only phone to do this. It isn't bad, but the connectors seem to fail every now and again. The phone has 99 extra phonebook entries, and these are really just an extra you can do without. My SIM card can hold 200 anyway, but the extra 99 are useful-just in case! It has a Date/clock/alarm, however no games are featured which some people may dislike. I don't mind having no games though, as a phone is a phone to me! Obviously, as almost all modern phones do it has text messaging, however it has no predictive text input. I find this quite annoying, as my 3210 is a breeze to send messages on. It has a nifty voice recorder for notes and reminders etc , along with speed dialling, call waiting, conference calling. The voice recorder I find very useful, esecially for reminding me of my Mums birthday! (A MUST!!) It is dual band i.e can be used almost anywhere in Europe. This is useful when you need to stay in touch whilst on holiday. It also has a Keypad lock, if by any chance the flip should come undone. A useful caller ID (shows you who is calling before you answer) is on the phone too. I find this good should someone phone who I don't want to speak to. I can just reject their call! There is really only one problem that I can think of having encountered with the SGH2400, and that is the reception. It isn't always perfect, however this may not be typical to everyone. Also, battery power is drained quickly through continual useage. This is compensated by the fast charge time though, about 4 hours. I really like the Samsung SGH2400, although many people wont have even heard of it! Samsung are relatively new to the world of mobile phones, however they are doing a sterling job catching up with the likes of Motorola and Nokia! My opinion is also confirmed by the people at 'what cellphone magazine' who gave it an award of excellence.
The Samsung SGH-2400 was recomended to me by a friend. The phone itself is very small and lightweight and fits easily into any pocket. Battery life lasts a couple of days. The screen is of good quality and high resolution making navigation and reading txt messages easier to read. The phone can accept any sim at any time. The call quality is just as good as any other phone and i have never been cut off from a call. Annoyingly you cannot accept turn the earpiece volume up to a good level for noisy environments. The charging connector is protected by a rubber pug which can be difficult to remove sometimes and is small so don't put it down in the wrong place. A slight irritation in the software is that when you write a txt message and youm attempt to send it but fail (network failure) the message is deleted. The only solution is to use the send and save feature, but this fills up a valuable txt message space. overall a good,robust and stlyish phone.
The more expensive of the Samsung series but looks exactly the same as the cheaper SGH600. It has a nice unique active flip, free hands free kit and the ability to make calls by just the call of the name. However, it has annoying buttons on the side which I don't particularly agree with. This phone is dual band which is probably the only advantage over the cheaper SGH600. If you don't need dual band then it is not really worth spending an extra 20 pounds over because I don't think that there is any other difference between them. However, it does have a vibrate alert which some people may enjoy.
A very sexy looking phone! OOOOOh with vibration too!!! <G> Seriously, this phone looks the biz. But being used to the Nokia 3210(see my review) I found this user unfriendly. Main things I missed were on the alarm feature, no snooze and no symbol on the display to confirm you had set it. Really annoying, because you just have to go into the menu and make sure. No games, which I do enjoy playing when I am waiting around for something or someone. Also, when I had it in my shorts pocket, I couldn't feel the vibra on it at all, so, not useful at all really. Another down I felt, that when you want to charge it, you have to remove a small rubber cover which can be a pain to get out. And is sooooo tiny, it would be real easy to lose. It should have been like the earphone cover, on a hinge. Also, sorry to winge on (not really) battery life on this is appalling. It needs a good overnight charge, every other night, even if you haven't really used it. You can't add any ring tones, or have them sent to the phone. The other big thing I missed was predictive text for the sms. Non. On the plus side, voice dialling, which once the damn thing actually accepts your voice is not bad, but can be a little embarrassing stood in the middle of Woolies yelling "Rob" and everyone around looks to see who you are shouting!!! Ring tones are really loud though, so don't set it on vibra, just tones. On the whole I was really disappointed with this phone. So much so, I have shoved a pay and go sim in as a cheap daytime mobile. And stick to my 3210. Miles better.
