Samsung S5560 review -

 

An above average five-megapixel camera on an average handset

Find yourself outside of a Wi-Fi hotspot and you?ll have to put up with the sluggish EDGE data speeds

Samsung S5560 preview: First look

 

Ah, the futuristic appeal of touchscreens - consumers can't get enough of them. Enter the Samsung S5560. With a 5MP camera and Wi-Fi, it's two widgets ahead of the competition. The rest mostly follows the recipe for success...

The Samsung S5560 lacks 3G connectivity but comes with Wi-Fi connectivity. It's hardly the solution that most carriers opt for (and carriers ARE the biggest cellphone contractors), but we guess Samsung have gone for pleasing the end client this time....

Samsung S5560 Review

 

The Samsung S5560 comes to fill the market gap in between affordable models and handsets like the Samsung Jet S8000. This is a likeable, feature phone that managed to surprise us with its capable 5-megapixel camera and usable browser...

Samsung Marvel S5560 - Wi-Fi and 5 MP

 

Samsung has another phone for us and this time it is making a strong point that phones are not just about prices and special features but also about the users' specific preferences. There are so many phones out there these days that you would almost...

Convenient Wi-Fi feature, excellent camera

No 3G, No DivX/XviD support, no photo editing feature ; No social network integration; features are inadequate

The Samsung Marvel S5560 is a great phone, but the features may be imbalanced for some people. The phone’s functionality is excellent while the design has small improvements and still has a long way to go. The Marvel is just another option, mostly for...

the camera is spot on with LED flash

 

The phone itself is good enough quality and the camera is spot on with LED flash. What let's this phone down a bit is the OS and lack of apps to install. Big minus for text input and sensitivity.I suspect this phone would be better off with Android...

In response to masterasia

 

You did not buy a Smartphone - so don't expect to see smartphone functionality. Try to buy Samsung Galaxy S series and see what is a smartphone about - Android + true multi tasking. That may satisfy your power user itch very well (if you can handle a...

No cons - there maybe few but which device does not have few

Great smart phone

 

This is a great light weight phone, with a nice look and cool design. I don't mind its simple, that's my style. I think it would be great if the music would only shuffle though. I don't mind the new way to view your phonebook compared to Samsung Tocco...

1. Color ; 2. Easy to use touch screen ; 3. Sound volume ; 4. Charm loop ; 5. Aux Jack ; 6. 5mp camera/video quality ; 7. Wi-fi

1. No shuffle in the music player ; 2. Screen scratched easily ; 3. Sticky-hard to press lock button

Great phone

 

Overall this is a great phone for the price. The only real problem i found was the lack of GPS as i use navigation software a lot. I'd certainly recommend this phone to freind

Responsive touchscreen. Miles ahead of BB Storm that i used to own ; 5 mp camera is pretty snappy ; Wi-fi ; Battery life ; User friendly menu ; PC Studio makes it easy to install games etc ; Looks good in white ; Has writing recognition that is not...

No GPS. Not good for emergencies or navigation ; Main menu/browser can lag at times when a lot of apps run at the same time ; The wifi's reception is pretty weak, so as the flash of the camera ; No 3g. Although wifi takes care of this problem for me ;...
