Samsung Genio QWERTY review

 

The budget option for the BlackBerry lover

QWERTY keyboard with slick action ; Slim design with swappable back covers ; Decent music player with good earphones ; 3.5mm headphone socket ; MicroSD card expansion ; Intuitive menu system

No 3G or Wi-Fi ; Limited 2MP camera ; Low resolution display ; Mediocre email set-up for a QWERTY phone ; No USB data cable or software supplied ; Low internal storage

With a colourful chassis, full QWERTY keyboard and seriously budget price tag, the Samsung Genio QWERTY is squarely aimed at the younger social networker.

Samsung Genio Qwerty

 

Built for avid textures, the Samsung Genio dons a full QWERTY keypad for faster messaging. A 3.5mm earphone jack means you can hook up any head/earphones of your choice when listening to its FM radio. Internal memory comes in at 37MB, but pop in a...

Samsung Genio Qwerty Review

 

Samsung's range of Genio handsets are highly affordable and have become hugely popular. Backed by a massive advertising campaign from the Korean manufacturer, it really does go to show that a huge marketing budget can result in increased sales.

The Genio QWERTY is a perfect solution for social networkers on a budget. The keyboard is useful for serial texters and although it’s not as comfortable to use as a BlackBerry, it’s a better option than the virtual keyboard on the Genio Touch. The...

Samsung Genio Review

 

It can be rather difficult for a handset maker to produce something that appeals to young people. Do it wrong, as most companies do, and it all looks incredibly patronising and uncool.

At the low-end of the market, LG and Samsung are battling it out with a range of small, sexy and pretty well featured touchscreen devices. Samsung has come up with the Genio Touch (a Genio Qwerty offers up a more traditional phone experience with a...

Samsung Genio QWERTY Review by 3G.co.uk

 

A funky handset that's fun to use

The keypad is a little small for accurate or rapid use

This fun handset should strike the right note with younger users.

Samsung Genio QWERTY Review by 3G.co.uk

 

This fun handset should strike the right note with younger users.

A funky handset that’s fun to use

The keypad is a little small for accurate or rapid use.

This is hardly an alternative to the iPhone, with its basic features, small screen and bright design, but as a budget handset for messaging, social networking youngsters, it’s funky and fits the bill perfectly.

Samsung Genio Slide Review

 

You get a lot for your money with the Samsung Genio Slide

HSDPA. Wi-Fi and a QWERTY keyboard make the ; Samsung Genio Slide ; a social networker’s dream.

Disappointingly, the resistive touch-screen was is neither accurate or smooth.

The Samsung Genio Slide fulfils the potential that we felt the Touch never really reached. Okay, the resistive touch-screen isn’t the best, but the QWERTY keyboard, HSDPA internet speeds and Wi-Fi connectivity make this a great social networking phone....

Samsung Genio Qwerty review

 

The Genio series stormed into the budget mobile sector in 2009 with the Genio Touch, offering one of the most affordable and accessible touchscreen phones ever made. Not only was it small and cheap, it also was one of the first low-end phones to use...
