Samsung SGH L170


The ultra compact size and chic design make this mobile a must-have functioning accessory for trendsetters. The minimalist details look sharp in the glossy reflective finish with platinum metal-like accents. From the keypad to the touch keys that blend...

A 2 megapixel camera and 3G connectivity option are considered entry-level specifications right now. I thought the miniscule onboard memory of 20MB to be rather ridiculous, but liked the protected data card slot under the battery cover.
