Samsung SGH-P510 Mobile - Pocket-lint


The first thing you'll notice about the P510 is that it has an auto-opening feature for the ultra-lazy. A press of the side button and the phone will open

More than just a novelty flip. LED lit camera, video, OLED external screen, WAP 2.0

No rotating camera. Still no Bluetooth. External aerial

Despite the obvious gimmick, this is solid camera phone from Samsung. Some glitches of the Samsung OS have been overcome, yet the rotating camera of the V200 and the elegance of the stunning Samsung E710 are lost. The LG U8810 has set the course with...

Samsung P510


For the first time the company presented external OLED-display that can work continuously, and not just turn on whenever it is needed. The continuous work became possible due to the new screen type, which requires less energy and does not affect the...

Only half of the screen is used in stand by mode. This is text line with main icons and the time. The user can also define date or analogue clock being displayed. The last two have really nice animated effect and were made with taste.

Samsung P510


A touch of a button flips open Samsung's P510 but what do we find inside? Read our Australian review.

Shortcut key automatically opens clamshell ; Camera performs exceptionally and has many effects and features ; Well laid out keypaid ; Dual screens ; Two batteries included

External antenna ; Main screen is on the small side

Samsung includes a slimline battery that sits flush with the phone (lasts around 3-4 days) and a higher capacity battery that juts out slightly but extends the average life span (during our tests) by an extra day.

Samsung SGH-P510


It's nice when a clam-shell phone gains some features but doesn't get smaller! Something I really can't stand is a tiny phone that due to the lack of size lacks of features too. The Samsung P510 is nicely sized and has a camera, polyphonic ring tones,...

Snapshot: Samsung SGH-P510


Samsung recently released a new triband GSM handset for the European market that sports an automatic opening and closing mechanism. The SGH-P510, as it is known, also has a 65k external OLED display. We even have a video clip.
