'Samsung's S5230 is a new super-thin cell phone that measures only a half inch in thickness (11.9mm) and manages to include a 3 megapixel camera/camcorder with Smile Shot technology and a bright 3-inch WQVGA (240x400 pixels) resolution touchscreen display in its package. '
'It's a little disappointing to see a music-oriented phone come without headphones or a memory card of some sort, but since it's currently offered free with a 2-year contract, these omissions are a little understandable.'
'the phone is solid and slick, although a little on the heavy side at 110 grams.'
'the phone does not stay steady in the hand.'
'It's slow, it has just a VGA camera, MP3s sound like they're being played back from a sarcophagus under a pyramid, and, well, just about everyone in a second class train compartment can now be segregated into Nokia 6600 users and some Reliance users.'
'A speakerphone is useful for hands-free calling when you're driving or multitasking.'
'The Samsung SGH-D900 has a flat keypad that makes menu navigation and dialing tricky.'
'You can use just one finger, putting in on the d-pad below the slightly raised surface, to open the phone's slider, as its movement is supported by flawless spring mechanism, which helps you to open both gently and fast.'
'When there is a new message, the standby screen will play gimmicky animations: fireworks at night, and stunt airplanes during the day.'
''Normal' will leave you free to shoot up to the constraints of your memory card at whatever quality setting and image size you want up to 352x288 pixels.'
