Samsung SGH-X820 review

 

The world's slimmest handset is skinnier than a supermodel

Strikingly thin design ; Tough construction ; 2-megapixel camera

Memory not expandable ; No camera flash ; Front view rather plain

A wonderful all-round phone with an abundance of features. Let down by un-expandable memory

Samsung Ultra SGH-X820 mobile phone - Pocket-lint

 

With the bear minimum of features, albeit good features, the Samsung Ultra X820 is the perfect phone for users don't want to be fussed with a smorgasbord

Thin design, large screen, 2 megapixel camera

No flash for digital camera, no external memory card slot, so thin it looks like you could snap it in half

With the bear minimum of features, albeit good features, the Samsung Ultra X820 is the perfect phone for users don't want to be fussed with whether or not their phone can let them watch TV or double up as a comprehensive MP3 player like Sony Ericsson's...

Samsung X820 review

 

Samsung's X820 is the slimmest mobile phone in the world, making competition such as Motorola's SLVR look positively obese. But can it pack in the functions?

The X820 is undoubtedly king of the slim brigade, and a major feat of design engineering – can mobile phones get any thinner?

Samsung X820 Test

 

Samsung X820 Test : Es ist nur 6,9 mm dünn, 113 mm lang und 50 mm breit. Ich spreche vom neuen Samsung X820. War es anfangs nur ein Hersteller, der dünne Mobiltelefone produzierte, so ist seit einiger Zeit eine Reihe Hersteller dazugekommen, die beim...

Y eni Samsung X820 kameralı cep telefonu 6.9mm inceliğinde, 113mm boyunda ve 50mm genişliğinde bir model. Bir süre öncesine kadar çok az sayıda böylesine ince model mevcutken artık günümüzde çok daha yüksek sayıda üretici firma bu tür modelleri üretir...

Samsung X820

 

Slim phone fashion was started by Motorola, RAZR's design was copied numerous times and some of those products were from Samsung as well. It's hard to create something unique and not similar to other products when you have an example of successful...

Fight for œslimmest phone on the market started in two directions at once: one was hinted by Motorola usage of metallic case, which allows keeping case proof; second attempt to use traditional materials in order to achieve case's slimness. As a...

First Looks: Samsung SGH-X820 Ultra Edition

 

The world's slimmest phone, the SGH-X820 Ultra Edition, is Samsung's latest push for technological leadership which at 6.9mm thick is a phone that is as much a technological marvel as it is practical.

Samsung X820 Phone

 

The Samsung X820 comes in a classic shape casing which has a super slim design. The X820 is extremely thin which only measures 113 x 50 x 6.9 mm & weighs 66 grams. The handset is thin & feather light which makes it easy for the user to carry with them...

Samsung SGH-X820 - black (Unlocked) review:

 

Yet again Samsung jumps ahead in the race to produce the world's thinnest cell phone with its new SGH-X820. Billed as the world's thinnest candy bar phone--though not for long, we're sure--the SGH-X820 is even trimmer than the already superslim Samsung...

The Samsung SGH-X820 has an attractive, thin design and an admirable feature set that includes Bluetooth, a speakerphone, and a 2-megapixel camera. It's a good performer, too.

The Samsung SGH-X820's memory is rather small, and it lacks hands-free dialing capability. Picture quality and call volume level could be better.

Despite some minor performance quibbles and a couple of missing features, the Samsung SGH-X820 is a nice blend of design, features, and performance.
