Samsung Monte review

 

The Samsung Monte has the looks and the specs, but does it have the brains?

Great design ; Good battery life ; Surprisingly good camera ; Lots of connectivity options ; Strong, fast 3G coverage

Laggy touch controls ; Slow software ; Browser crashes regularly ; Some confusing UI design ; No social integration with contacts

Samsung's touchscreen mobile phone onslaught shows no sign on stopping, with the Monte arriving on the heels of the Samsung Genio Touch, Genio Slide and Galaxy Portal.

Samsung Monte S5620 review

 

The Samsung Monte offers a full-fledged suite of connectivity options including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3G and even GPS. We can't emphasize how great it is to finally see an inexpensive mobile phone that doesn't compromise on features.

Keeping in mind the Samsung Monte's connectivity features, one point of view would term it as an excellent product that has the right amounts of performance, features, looks and price in the perfect ratio. If you are looking for a full-featured phone...

Samsung Monte Review

 

According to Samsung, the Monte is a high-end handset at an affordable price. You can pick it up for around £120 on pay-as-you-go and on monthly contracts starting at £10/month. Read our review to find…

Samsung Monte review -

 

A feature list that belies its appealing price tag, including a capacitive touch-screen of a calibre rarely found at this price point

Though it looks high-end from afar, upon closer inspection the Monte?s build does feel a little flimsy

Samsung Monte review

 

Touchscreen, check. GPS and Wi-Fi, check. A fresh instalment of Samsung's TouchWiz interface, check. So why is the Monte positioned towards the budget end of the range?

Here we arrive at the end of my review of the S5620 Monte, and although it has some bad points it has made quite an impression on me, so much so that I saw myself using it to text instead of my own phone. My overall opinion of the handset is mixed...

Samsung Monte

 

The full monty?

The Monte is a modestly successful combination of attractive design and entry-level smartphone capabilities, and while its shortcomings are unfortunate they're easy to forgive when you take into account its eminently reasonable price tag
