Samsung B5310 CorbyPRO review: Type and go

 

The S3650 Corby was just the beginning of a lineup that appears to have no visible end. There is a Corby for the touchscreen addicts, a Corby for the music buffs, Corby for the heavy texters, Corby for the young, and one for...

Quad-band GSM/EDGE ; Dual-band UMTS support with HSDPA ; 2.8" resistive TFT touchscreen of QVGA resolution ; Four-row side-slide QWERTY keyboard ; 150 MB onboard storage, microSD card slot (up to 16GB) ; 3.15 megapixel fixed-focus camera with smile...

Disappointing sunlight legibility ; The camera has no autofocus or flash ; Video recording maxes out at QVGA@15fps ; All preinstalled games are trial versions only ; Google Maps is the only GPS navigation app ; microSD slot is under the battery cover

The founding member of the Corby wasn't announced so long ago, but so much has been changed. Well, if you put the S3650 Corby and the recently announced B5310 CorbyPRO side by side you'll notice one thing that hasn't changed at all: design. But on the...

Samsung B5310 CorbyPRO and B3210 CorbyTXT preview: First look

 

When the Samsung S3650 Corby was announced hardly anyone saw it as something more than a nice looking handset that comes on a really attractive price. As it turns out though that event was the birth of a whole new family that promises to change the way...

So several weeks later we made sure that we won't repeat the same mistake and paid all the due attention to the second wave of Corbys announced. Luckily, we were able to attend the official announcement event held in Milan and got a chance to see the...

Samsung CorbyPRO B5310 - All good to go

 

A mobile phone with lots of features and still comes at an affordable price? Samsung didn't think it was impossible when they came up with the Samsung CorbyPRO B5310. Not only is it packed with essential features and placed at a reasonable price range,...

Good features package at an affordable price

Limited video support, mediocre video recording ; camera has no flash or autofocus

With lots of features matched with great functionality, the Samsung CorbyPRO B5310 is definitely a good choice especially because it comes at an affordable price. The thing is, the CorbyPRO feels old now that the newer and fresher Samsung Monte is in...

Samsung Corby Pro (Genio Pro)

 

Following on from the original Samsung Corby (or Genio), the most obvious improvement with the Corby Pro is the keyboard, but the handset also adds 3.5G and WiFi support and a better camera to the mix.

Consumer review by:

VERY GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Its just a good and simple touch screen phone and very good price with all excepted features. And it comes 3 changeable covers.

I like how it is a very cheap (in pricing) phone. It allows you to do bIG features

No wi-fi

Consumer review by:

Not bad but can be better.

 

Overall i like it, but i would love it a lot more if the touch screen doesn't lag. The other 2 reviews criticized the battery life very badly but mine was alright.. Sometimes it conks out after 1 day, but usually it can last about 2-3 days. When I ......

Good design ; Like the widgets, fake call function, etc. Basically the functions of the phone are not bad ; Battery charges up extremely quickly (not sure whether this is good?). Can go from 1 bar to full in half an hour

Touch screen reaction can be a bit slow. Can be irritating but mostly acceptable ; Absolutely no reception overseas. not sure if it's phone/service provider problem ; Battery life inconsistent. Can at least last a full day, at most 5 days
