Samsung Solid Immerse review

 

The Jack Bauer of phones returns in an even more rugged design

If you're after a cheap and cheerful phone that will probably outlive you and your children, then the Solid Immerse at £10 a month or £100 on PAYG is a great buy.

Samsung Solid Immerse GT-B2710 - Pocket-lint

 

A good basic option for outdoorsy types, but those who are after the smartphone experience should look elsewhere

Rugged chassis, waterproof, good voice calling

Clunky web browsing and social networking, bulky, small screen, lame camera

Overall, the Samsung Solid Immerse isn't a bad phone at all, as long as you're after something basic for phone calls and texts and not much else besides. The actual voice calling function is great and a lot better than on many much more highly priced...

Samsung Solid Immerse review

 

A tough, no nonsense candybar phone for clumsy people - but short on features

Tough and solid ; Good keypad ; Built-in torch ; FM radio ; Twitter and Facebook possible at a pinch ; Cheap price tag

Seems to suffer from poor battery life ; Web browser is poor ; 3G but not HSDPA ; No Wi-Fi ; Camera is poor

We all know about Samsung and its phones, right? Samsung has just set the new high standard for a smartphone with its Galaxy S2 – an absolute stunner that garnered a much-coveted five stars from us.

A phone that can take on jungles, building sites and bath times. But would you want to use it?

Water and dust-proof, Has 3G

Slow online features, Chunky, No 3.5mm headphone jack, Mediocre screen

A rugged feature phone with useful features, the Solid Immense doesn't have the power of a smartphone but is useful enough to make it good addition to your backpack

Samsung Solid Immerse Review

 

The Samsung Solid Immerse is a sturdy and rugged mobile phone for those with a more adventurous side and who prefer to spend time outdoors. And no, I don't mean leaving the computer to go to McDonalds....

Sturdy / rugged design

OS is very basic

All in all, the Samsung Solid Immerse is more suited to adventurers and people who tend to participate in activities such as rock climbing and walking.

Samsung Solid Immerse review

 

Affordable phones often struggle to stand out from the pack, so it's refreshing to see one with a clear, no-nonsense selling point. In the case of the Samsung Solid Immerse, it's an ability to withstand the sort of treatment that would swiftly...
