Samsung SGH-U600 review

 

A new generation of Ultra slim style is ushered in

Top notch looks ; 3.2-megapixel camera ; Smart Search facility

No 3G ; Lack of definition between keys ; Fiddly interface

A stylish handset that manages to push design boundaries and combine class with multimedia functionality

Samsung SGH-U600 mobile phone - Pocket-lint

 

If you're tempted by the Chocolate, but don't want to go completely touch sensitive this will meet you in the middle

Large display, easy to use interface, thin

No 3G, touch sensitive buttons

With only quad-band GSM support those looking for 3G connectivity will be disappointed, certainly considering that Sony Ericsson has managed it with its non-sliding W880i Walkman handset which is equally as thin.

We love the U600’s styling, features set and above all it’s meagre midriff. This is so skinny it hurts. Hurts that everything else in our lives is so fat. Samsung U600 is tagged with Samsung, mobile phone and auto focus. Select a tag (Samsung, for...

Samsung U600

 

Samsung's U600 is currently the slimmest slider phone in the world. But is this Ultra Edition II phone as good as it looks?…

A fabulous looking phone that won't dent your pocket one bit

The touch-sensitive soft keys just slow things down

A record-breaking slim phone with a slick design and some very fine features.
