Samsung E1230


Samsung may be best-known for dominating the smartphone market with its high-end Galaxy devices, but the firm also has a presence in the feature phone market, the firm's latest budget mobile being the Samsung E1230.

The E1230 is a simple as they come, ideal for those perplexed by high-end smartphone technology or for those of you looking for a cheap pay as you go phone to use as a "spare". On the spec-front, you'll find a compact, yet ample, 1.8-inch (120 x 160)...

Basic but Reliable


One of the cheapest phones around with very basic features and a low resolution colour display.

Great no frills phone


Bought this phone to replace my old one,which was acting up! Only want to send & receive text & calls, does just the job. It feels alittle light & cheapy hence the 3 stars for quality,but hey for the price!

Samsung GT-E1230


Nice easy to use basic phone. Interesting fake ring function. Light enough to fit in top pocket. No camera. Perfect for spare phone or for children

It feels very light. Maybe too light for heavy handed people
