Samsung E1230

 

Samsung may be best-known for dominating the smartphone market with its high-end Galaxy devices, but the firm also has a presence in the feature phone market, the firm's latest budget mobile being the Samsung E1230.

The E1230 is a simple as they come, ideal for those perplexed by high-end smartphone technology or for those of you looking for a cheap pay as you go phone to use as a "spare". On the spec-front, you'll find a compact, yet ample, 1.8-inch (120 x 160)...

Nice easy to use basic phone. Interesting fake ring function. Light enough to fit in top pocket. No camera. Perfect for spare phone or for children

It feels very light. Maybe too light for heavy handed people

Good cheap phone when a phone is all you want
