An understated mobile phone for the masses

Samsung U800 Review - Updated with Later Impressions

 

The Samsung U800 is a slim and stylish handset that packs in an array of features…

A stylish handset with decent entertainment and internet features

A rather basic music player and slightly clunky messaging menu

A handsome slimline phone but it could do with a more streamlined user interface.

Samsung U800 Soul Review

 

The Samsung U800 Soul is a wonderful low to mid market phone. Although not rich in many of today's must have features it does not claim to be anything other than it actually is.

Samsung U800 review

 

We review the Samsung U800, the ultra-thin candybar relation of the Soul, and see if this HSDPA equipped, 1GB-packing handset has the right touch

Ultra-slim and elegant design ; Solid-feel metal casing ; HSDPA high-speed multimedia capabilities ; 1GB internal storage plus MicroSD card expansion ; 3 megapixel camera with flash ; 3.5mm headphone jack adapter on decent earphones

Doesn't have Soul's touch control capabilities ; Average screen ; Camera has no autofocus; images unexceptional ; No Wi-Fi

A super-thin, classy looking handset that combines a decent mid-tier set of 3G multimedia features and a reliable performance

Samsung U800 Soul

 

The U800 measures up at 111x46x9.9 mm and weighs 91 grams – all in all, it's not a petite phone, but not a behemoth either. It won't weigh you down, however it delivers a nice feeling of heaviness. Coupled with its metallic accents (that is, rear...

The display accommodates up to 9 text and 3 service lines. All fonts are large and very readable; the same goes for SMS and dialing screen

Samsung U800 Soul b review: As busy as a

 

Inspiration is one thing you can't deny the Samsung Soul lineup. Well, that goes to the Ultra too, though all of them thin and sexy handsets are pretty much doomed to oblivion by their own offspring. Back in the day, we said the original U900 Soul was...

2.0" 16M-color TFT LCD display of QVGA resolution ; 3G with HSDPA (3.6Mbps) support ; 1GB of onboard memory, microSD expansion ; Nice and responsive D-pad ; Cool brushed metal casing ; Just 9.9mm thickness ; 3 megapixel camera with LED flash ; FM radio...

Tri-band only ; Camera has no auto focus ; Somewhat slow interface response ; Slow first-time access of the microSD card ; Limited browser capabilities ; QCIF video recording at most

might be another option to consider
