Samsung - Monte Slide (E2550)


The Monte Slide from Samsung is a mobile phone aimed at those who want a cost-efficient, functional handset and don't need all the smartphone data and media-rich features that seem to abound these days. Hidden numberpad ...

The Samsung Monte Slide is possibly ideal for those who want a phone for voice calls and not much else. But it does look rather lacking when you start comparing it to entry-level Android handsets.

Samsung Monte Slider E2550


Like the disappointing Samsung Shark range, the Monte slider is.. well, disappointing. In fact, it's not far off the specification of the Samsung Shark 3 which is a similarly underpowered slider phone.

Samsung Monte Slider E2550


This is the second of these phones l have had ,first one was dropped in tesco,s and went into 4 pieces then was run over by 2 trolleys , l loved that phone , so l had to get any phone very quickly, what a joke after 3 days l hated it , so went on line...

I would like the print when you send a text to be a bolder darker print , it would be easier to see in daylight
