Samsung S3550 Shark 3 Review

 

It's still difficult to understand why Samsung made the S3550 Shark since there clearly are better options which are just a few pesos away from its price range. But hey, this one's quite functional, though the features are pretty much limited and the...

Good interface, good features

Slow processing, few features

Samsung Shark 3 S3550

 

is this Korean manufacturer's attempt to make a big splash at the beginning of 2010 - unfortunately, it looks like these three phones might be more of a wet thud instead. We understand that all three handsets should be available this month

The phone looks good

Volume is very disappointing. So much so that my husband plans to buy a replacement phone as soon as possible. Therefore....NOT value for money

Cheap! Basic phone. Great if you aren't very technical, and just want a phone with a reasonable camera

Battery life I found to be poor compared to my 3 previous Nokias

Samsung S3550

 

I was happy with my old samsung slider phone but I wanted a radio and this phone was excellent value for money

It has turned itself off, and restarted automatically, a couple of times - not during a call though! I find it difficult to get the back of but the girl in the shop had no problem
