The Samsung is definitely a cool phone and definitely a gadget to show off to your friends, however its tiny screen makes things a challenge.

Samsung X830


Samsung's new music phone is tiny, slim and striking-looking. And with 1GB of storage, Samsung is hoping you'll leave your MP3 player at home…

Impressively tiny, the phone still manages a big sound. A stylish and eye-catching fashion handset

The keyboard is hard to conquer, and apart from the music, it's not feature-rich, as exemplified by the basic camera

The X830 is a great music player and a compact phone that will turn heads, but usability takes a hit in favour of style.

Samsung X830


The first thing that strikes you about the Samsung X830 is the great swivel design and its really small size. Packed into the small package is a 1.3 megapixel camera with impressive 1Gb memory and a quality MP3 player. Available in white or black

Samsung X830 Phone


The Samsung X830 is a highly fashionable mini music phone which comes with a swing opening mechanism. The handset has a stylish & sleek design with built in powerful multimedia features. The handset is narrow & slim which measures 84 x 30 x 19.9 mm...

Samsung X830


Looking more like an MP3 player than a mobile phone, the Samsung X830 is a stylish, if unconventional handset that swivels open to reveal a unique, tw...

Decent in-call quality, music player, drag-and-drop file transfer, A2DP, 1GB internal memory

No hands-free speakerphone, no memory storage slot, scroll wheel performance, swivel build quality, two column keypad, camera button in awkward place, Bluetooth only 1.2, average battery life

The Samsung X830 is a fashion-orientated phone with a unique design and quite a good music player. Unfortunately, it sacrifices too many features to deem it a worthwhile purchase.

Samsung X830 review: The small big player


The controversial Samsung X830 won't leave you indifferent. It is a MP3 player with 1 GB of built-in memory on one hand, and a mobile phone, supporting Bluetooth and EDGE on the other hand. The unusual design also draws the attention – it will amuse...

The provided battery is Li-Ion with capacity of 800 mAh and maximum indicated lifetime of 120 h in stand-by and 3 h of talk time. The real values move about two and a half days in stand-by mode. Using the music functions shortens the battery charging...

Samsung X830


A music-focused phone with 1GB of internal memory, the X830 and its compact contours are intriguing, but usability has been sacrificed for looks.

Compact size ; Swift and satisfying flick motion ; Easy to transfer music

No expandable memory ; Two-column keypad takes a while to get used to ; Scrollwheel navigation very slow ; Very small display

All up the X830 is certainly a conversation starter due to its dimensions, music player and the super-quick flick motion it opens with, but there have been a few sacrifices when it comes to usability. It's probably best to view it as an MP3 player that...

Samsung X830


The Samsung SGH-X830 looks promising on paper - an uncommon form factor, 262k colour display, 1.3mpx digital camera, huge 1GB of internal memory, Bluetooth and USB, and dedicated music player functionality. However, some of the design attributes of the...
