Samsung F210 review

 

Stick thin but some meaty memory for music

1GB onboard memory ; Excellent call quality ; Innovative design

Small screen ; Sluggish scroll wheel ; Poor camera

A handbag-friendly number that will turn heads with a decent performance to boot

Samsung SGH-F210 mobile phone - Pocket-lint

 

If you are looking for a handset that's compact, but doesn't do much beyond making calls then yes

1GB of storage on board, MicroSD slot, small

Screen is too small, not many functions useable beyond phone and MP3 player

The Samsung F210 is a phone foremost and then an MP3 music player second with the rest best being seen as extras that you weren't expecting. It's small, well-made and easy to use, although very much a phone aimed at the girls rather than rugby-playing...

Samsung SGH-F210

 

Taking its cues from the X830, does Samsung's latest swivelling phone-cum-music player get the convergence balance right?

Samsung F210 review

 

The F210 is the super-slim successor to Samsung's handbag-loving ‘Blush' phone – but can it improve on its predecessors embarrassing ergonomic problems?

This perfectly-formed popster plays a good tune, but many will find it tricky to use and the storage too small for anything more than music-snacking

Samsung F210 review -

 

The music player produces great sound and, despite its compact size, it can store a large amount of content

Your patience will wear thin with the media player automatically coming on when the swivel screen is closed

Samsung - SGH-F210

 

Samsung's SGH-F210 updates an earlier model with a similarly cooky approach to combining mobile phone and music player, the X830. This is an altogether better attempt at the idea, but it is still fundamentally flawed. On ...

We wanted to like this phone for its small size and clever swivel. But in the end the screen lets it down too much. It's not quite the perfect blend of form and function that we had hoped for.

Samsung F210

 

There's always room for a phone that's a bit quirky, offering something a bit different, and the swivel-screen F210 is bound to attract plenty of attention. And not just because our test model came in this season's Quality Street-wrapper pink

The Samsung F210 could be a good little phone for young people. It's slim, lightweight and has a decent 1 GB memory and music player. The small screen will be a turn-off for many - 1.4-inches is just too small. The swivel design is not the most-loved...

Small and slim, Looks good, 1 GB internal memory

Tiny screen, Battery life, No 3.5 mm audio jack
