Samsung D840

 

It's an unfortunate fact of life that there's usually little to get worked up about Samsung phones. The Samsung D840 seems to be a rather unnecessary clone of the D900 – it manages to look like its predecessor in many respects. The phone is slightly...

To sum up, the phone really doesn't excite me. Right from form factor to features, there is nothing that will give you pride of ownership. It costs Rs 10,100 with bill and warranty, and while this isn't very expensive, you get plenty of other good...

Samsung SGH-D840 mobile phone - Pocket-lint

 

"It looks amazing" was what the PR man on behalf of Samsung wanted us to say, and compared to other Ultra Edition models we would have to agree. The D840

Slim, easy to use, great slider mechanism, 2 megapixel camera

Not that fashion focused, Mrs Pocket-lint didn't seem that bothered by the design

Samsung say it has gone for the fashion angle with the D840 and we are struggling to see it to be honest. Yes it's certainly better looking than the previous Ultra Edition models, but compared to fashion phones like Nokia's L'amour range and LG's...

Thin, sleek and slidy, Samsung's Ultra range has plenty of fans. We check out the latest handset.

Samsung D840 review

 

Samsung's super-slim slider looks like a Shine-worrier, but can it impress more than just the fashion set?

A Shine that the boys can be seen with, although its camera and aerial need to build a bit of muscle

The Samsung D840 is set to challenge the LG Shine for the fashion phone throne. But, under the metallic exterior, has it got what it takes?…

Just like the D900, it is a pleasure to use and handle

Its signature Ultra slider design can't compete with the more stylish LG Shine

Samsung hasn't moved the D840's design on enough to excite.

Samsung D840

 

In the year of 2006 Samsung has been into œslim handsets " in this field the company has established special line-ups, specifically Ultra Thin Edition, gathering three different form-factors: candy-bar, folder and slider (X820, D830 and D900...

Look-alike models have been the major trend for Samsung in 2006 unfortunately, Samsung D840 doesn't have a unique face either. Sharing many details and specs with the flagship brings along some benefits, but the fact that more entry-level offerings,...
