Samsung SGH-F210 Review

 

One year after successfully launching the X830 swivel handset, Samsung upgrades the line of of the handsets that mix MP3 player functions with those of a standard GSM mobile phone. The new addition to the lineup has been branded as Samsung SGH-F210....

The best thing I have noticed with F210 is definitely related to its look. More than appealing, the phone doesn't feel when you put it into your pocket, or carry it with you, just like an MP3 player. It has everything that a young person would want:...

Even for someone who is not interested too much in using the GSM capabilities of the phone, the small screen could be a big issue. Probably the battery is also a negative point, as it lasts only half of the time offered by these days dedicated music...

Samsung SGH-F210

 

The slim line of Samsung mobile phones just unveiled the newest member of its clan; the SGH-F210. The F210's slim and slick body design can bring confusion to the average mobile user because it looks more like a music player than a mobile phone. It...

There is no doubt that the Samsung SGH-F210 has succeeded in fusing together the music player and the mobile phone. While the music mode works incredibly well for its size, the phone mode needs some adjustments to be more gratifying to the user....

Samsung F210 review

 

Stick thin but some meaty memory for music

1GB onboard memory ; Excellent call quality ; Innovative design

Small screen ; Sluggish scroll wheel ; Poor camera

A handbag-friendly number that will turn heads with a decent performance to boot

Samsung SGH-F210 mobile phone - Pocket-lint

 

Girls Aloud backing, a funky purple colour, and small enough to fit in your make-up case, so is the Samsung F210 the ultimate girls' phone? We get dialing

1GB of storage on board, MicroSD slot, small

Screen is too small, not many functions useable beyond phone and MP3 player

The Samsung F210 is a phone foremost and then an MP3 music player second with the rest best being seen as extras that you weren't expecting. It's small, well-made and easy to use, although very much a phone aimed at the girls rather than rugby-playing...

Samsung SGH-F210

 

Taking its cues from the X830, does Samsung's latest swivelling phone-cum-music player get the convergence balance right?

Samsung F210 review

 

The F210 is the super-slim successor to Samsung's handbag-loving ‘Blush' phone – but can it improve on its predecessors embarrassing ergonomic problems?

This perfectly-formed popster plays a good tune, but many will find it tricky to use and the storage too small for anything more than music-snacking

Samsung F210 review -

 

The music player produces great sound and, despite its compact size, it can store a large amount of content

Your patience will wear thin with the media player automatically coming on when the swivel screen is closed
