Samsung SGH-Z400 review


Samsung's best-seller now comes as a turbocharged pocket PC

Small and lightweight 3G phone ; Document viewer ; Expandable memory

Memory card costs extra ; No full-screen video playback ; Camera lacks close focusing skills

An excellent combination of size, looks and features

Samsung SGH-Z400


Samsung's SGH-Z400 is another stylish slider phone with an extensive feature list. But does it try to take on too much?

Samsung Z400 3G Phone Review


It may look like every other Samsung slider, but the new Z400 will delight fans of the D500 and D600 with its 3G speeds and new-look silver finish. But will it impress us?

If you don't need push e-mail, then this is one of the best handsets currently available. Stylish, compact and packed full of features, Samsung are onto another winner yet again with the 3G enabled Z400, even if its battery life is a let down.

Design, 3G capabilities, Display, Features list

No push e-mail, Battery life

Samsung Z400


This 3G slider with a 2-megapixel camera is a very agreeable compromise for those wanting a few business-focused features in an everyday phone.

3G in a slim package ; Lovely looking display ; Satisfyingly springy slider ; Can save battery power easily by switching to non-3G

Disappointing Web browsing ; No memory card included ; Glossy surface prone to smudges

In general, we found the Z400 to be user-friendly and intuitive, but wouldn't choose it as a business-only phone. It does however represent a very agreeable compromise for those wanting a few work features without becoming slaves to the demands of push...

Samsung Z400


Great slider. Good camera. Perfect size and weight. Great button size and layout (Not too small). MP3 Ringtones.

Lot of menu clutter over wallpaper that can not be turned off. Message alerts are pathetic and unable to asign your own.
