Well, as for the records, just bought a cell phone. So, my benevolent mind took a decision to write something that would work like review, if at all someone cares to read that .;-)
So, here we go! First of all, with all the world going crazy for full touch screen keyboard and a fantastic world of open source (usually free :D) apps, People are getting demanding, and honestly, crazy in what they ask of the manufacturers..
I was doing the same with an intention to find out some kool freaking out cell phone with the medium budget category.. and stuck when I saw this :
The bare looks sufficed enough to kill me with the elegant black metal body, Great combination and placement of nav keys and a sleek, strong design. All this, with google Android operating system running on a monster 800 mhz processor and dedicated RAM, this phone converts to everyone’s dream chocolate pie!
I was no exception, and decided to go through other features. And, Frankly, I can’t stop myself playing with this black maestro for hours. Display is lustrous, appealing and makes you never lock this phone! 😀 Menu organization is well thought out and shows complete google philosophy, Simple and powerful.
Touch screen is a paradise and dances the way you want it to. Its really fun navigating through the cell ‘s features, some of which are damn intersting. Like the ability to sync almost all of your data to the google server. And that includes, your calendar, your contacts and other stuff! So that next time you format your cell phone, you dont have to write sms’s like “I have lost my all contacts! ” And the best part is, you dont have to say sorry to every unknown number, just because you fucking formatted! 😛
Internet Browsing is a great and enriching experience and you never get tired stumbling across. Managing Email accounts is quite easy and usually not more than a two step process. And with a great arsenal of open source Android and java ME apps, you can add in the functionality of the phone beyond the points of reality!
The handy GPS and wi-fi make sure you stay connected always and anyways. 😀 There is a sweet in built app called Switcher, which lets you access all the connectivity options (which are many) from one place. The phone comes in real handy when Showing off as the graphics are stunnungly beautiful to play around.
Messaging and emailing are quite comfy and a luxury in the device as the built in acclerometer (or something of that sort) helps you change orientation of the screen seemlessly and speedily. The full QWERTY keyboard at your disposal with nicely thought out special keys (alt) make your life a whole lot easier.
Android dominates in providing a strong and stable operating system enabling you to unceasingly between more than one open windows and even across applications!
Coming to the most basic functionality, making and receiving calls. I was quite relaxed to find out that in call quality was superb, even in loud speakers. Samsung didnt forget the fact what the cell phones are made for in the process of making it a beast.
Managing multimedia is fun and something which is quite extensively developed. Audio quality is great provided you are not playing it too loud, and the headphones coming with the device are real class. Video quality is brilliant to say the least.MP4 and h.264 are supported.
A 3.2 MP Camera captures handsome photos but really sucks at video capture with a far lesser resolution available to camcorder as compared to todays standards. But still, I cant remember how many times I used camcorder facility of my last cell phones in 3 years. For me, it doesnt matter anyways.
One more point, you can never list all of its features, and what can you do with this cell phone. The list goes virtually endless..
All this for just 13000 bucks, I couldn’t stop myself rushing to buy this black beast off the market rightaway!
Sigh.. I am in Love! 😛
