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.

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...

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.
