Samsung G600 review: Slide and snap

 

Samsung sets two contenders running for glory, with two 5 megapixel newcomers on the cameraphone market. The Samsung G600 was first to be announced, and had the mobile community astir. Featuring quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support, a...

Stylish design ; 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash and VGA video recording ; 16M color TFT display of QVGA (320x240 pixels) resolution ; Ambient light sensor for automatic brightness control ; Bluetooth with A2DP ; microSD memory card slot ;...

No 3G support ; Upper row of alphanumeric keys might be hard to reach ; New headset/charger jack incompatible with older accessories ; Xenon flash would've suited it better ; Shot-to-shot time on the slow side

How about a brief look back though, before we go? You know, a little bit of context won't hurt. Samsung D900 proved quite a gifted contender in the 3 megapixel shootouts we did in the past. In fact, it even got our recommendation as the best...

Samsung G600

 

No 3G will turn some away, but if you don't mind going without data speeds, GPS or a touchscreen then the G600 will make you an excellent camera phone and save you money in the process.

Smallest 5-megapixel camera phone to date, Camera is fast and takes great pics, Good music player, Fun collection of mobile games

No 3G or HSDPA, Auto-focus could be more accurate, Combined proprietary input

Samsung SGH-G600 Review

 

G600 and G800 are the first Samsung cameraphones that the Korean company proposes as rivals to the 5 Megapixel devices such as Nokia N95, Sony Ericsson K850i and LG Viewty. Further on, we will try to find out whether Samsung manages to enter the race...

I don't understand why so many users have criticized the module camera of the slider, as it captures above average snapshots, especially in good light conditions. My advice is to read the manual provided with the phone and understand the settings...

There are some minor software glitches that could've been corrected in the latest firmware, but I think I should mention them here as I was unable to update the phone's software. Well, the first is the inability of attaching MP3 files to alarm tones,...

SAMSUNG SGHG600 review | cellphone prices in php | cellphones | www.CgeNa.com   

 

In a nutshell, G600 is a fabulous phone, combining design, superb camera and a fully featured music player that is really effortless.

We say it's a slider phone that is pleasant to use with great touches. True to its promises, the 5-megapixel camera produced high quality results. There are a few minor points for improvement though; we'd like to see the camera perform better in low...

Expert Review

 

Aside from the 5-megapixel camera, the G600 doesn't offer anything outstanding. Regardless, if you can live without 3G then there isn't too much else wrong with this handset.

Sleek and stylish design, user interface, 5-megapixel camera, included 1GB microSD card

No 3G, proprietary headphone and charging jack
