Samsung Genio Qwerty GT-B3210


With a QWERTY keyboard and proper headphone jack, this budget phone should appeal to many.

Low price, Build quality, Ergonomics

Web browser isn't as good as a 'real' smartphone., Poor screen resolution

Samsung CorbyTXT B3210 review


Since the Samsung CorbyTXT B3210 is a budget phone, you shouldn't expect too much out of it in terms of features. It has Bluetooth but doesn't support Wi-Fi or 3G and doesn't allow for GPS. It does however have a ubiquitous microUSB port for charging...

If you are looking for an affordable phone that takes a page out of the Blackberry handbook and doesn't compromise on multimedia performance, the Samsung CorbyTXT B3210 is a good choice. But even with its price-tag of around £140, there is plenty that...

Samsung CorbyTXT B3210


The Samsung CorbyTXT B3210 is an affordable phone that is let down by a number of design issues.

Inexpensive ; QWERTY Keyboard ; Easy to Use UI ; Very Good Music Playback ; 3.5mm Headphone Jack

QWERTY Keypad Has Issues ; No Wi-Fi or GPS ; Bad Screen ; Build Uses Too Much Glossy Plastic ; Uneven Call Quality

If you are looking for an affordable phone that takes a page out of the Blackberry handbook and doesn't compromise on multimedia performance, the CorbyTXT is a good choice. But even with its price-tag of Rs. 6,900, there is plenty that the B3210 could...

Samsung CorbyTXT B3210 Review


The Samsung CorbyTXT B3210 comes with a BlackBerry-like design and feels pretty comfy in your hand. Its overall dimensions are pretty much the same as these of the BlackBerry Curve 8520 and it´s slightly bulkier than the original Corby S3650 ...

Samsung B3210


The tiny keyboard keys spoil the B3210's spotlight feature and not having 3G will irritate the teens this phone is supposed to appeal to.

Easy-to-use interface ; Loud earpiece speaker ; Long battery life

Tiny QWERTY keyboard ; 2G only ; Low-res screen ; Almost no user-accessible memory

Samsung CorbyTXT B3210 - Meant for messaging


While Samsung continues to release touchscreen phones in perpetual succession, they also maintain a balance with non-touchscreen options by creating ones with full QWERTY keyboards. So here we have another Samsung phone from the Corby line called the...

Good response in general, good packaging

Exterior is made of cheap-looking plastic

The name itself says what it is meant to do: text. The Samsung CorbyTXT B3210's package is well thought of; it somewhat looks business-y on the outside, with a bit of multimedia on the features side, changeable covers, and it is all wrapped up in an...

Consumer review by: CharlotteM (

Basic reliable phone shame about the keypad.


I love the colour and the durability (I drop it often and its still works), but I hate the keypad. The buttons are much smaller than those on other QWERTY phones and you have to press them harder. Also the keypad numerals and letters wore away very e...

Consumer review by: lalalou (

Its a great phone for the price, and has everything on it.


The good points about the phone are it is really easy to use. You have the radio on there as well as media player so you can put your own songs on. If you like to play games there is a few on their although they are not the greatest. A bad point woul...

Consumer review by: MiMi (

It is by far the best I have owned


Like a Blackberry, the design of the Samsung Genio (known as the Corby outside of Europe) is slim yet chunky. Looking at the image, you may think it is slightly small. It is! It fits into the phone sock supplied with the LG Chocolate!Why Did I Bu...
