Samsung E 840


It's slim and it slides. With a cool feather touchpad, the new Samsung E840 is going to give other sliders a run for their money

Good looks ; Feather touch keys ; Good Headphones

No flash ; fingerprint magnet ; no 3G

Samsung E840


It's a nice little slimline phone which has reasonable features, and is good value for money for anyone who isn't bothered about a phone having all the latest features.

The camera isn't great (mainly due to it not having a flash) and the battery life is far from great.

Just love this phone, had many different ones over the years and am disappointed that this phone is not available new, just bought it as a replacement to the previous E840 I had, would like another one, but not made any more

Nothing bad about it at all
