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.

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....
