Samsung S5560 preview: First look

 

Ah, the futuristic appeal of touchscreens - consumers can't get enough of them. Enter the Samsung S5560. With a 5MP camera and Wi-Fi, it's two widgets ahead of the competition. The rest mostly follows the recipe for success...

The Samsung S5560 lacks 3G connectivity but comes with Wi-Fi connectivity. It's hardly the solution that most carriers opt for (and carriers ARE the biggest cellphone contractors), but we guess Samsung have gone for pleasing the end client this time....

Samsung S5560 Review

 

The Samsung S5560 comes to fill the market gap in between affordable models and handsets like the Samsung Jet S8000. This is a likeable, feature phone that managed to surprise us with its capable 5-megapixel camera and usable browser...

Samsung Marvel S5560 - Wi-Fi and 5 MP

 

Samsung has another phone for us and this time it is making a strong point that phones are not just about prices and special features but also about the users' specific preferences. There are so many phones out there these days that you would almost...

Convenient Wi-Fi feature, excellent camera

No 3G, No DivX/XviD support, no photo editing feature ; No social network integration; features are inadequate

The Samsung Marvel S5560 is a great phone, but the features may be imbalanced for some people. The phone’s functionality is excellent while the design has small improvements and still has a long way to go. The Marvel is just another option, mostly for...

Samsung S5560 Marvel Review

 

The Samsung S5560 is let down by the unresponsive touchscreen, lack of a proper flash for the camera and lack of 3G.

The Samsung S5560 has some good features but is seriously let down by the unresponsive touchscreen, the lack of a flash on the otherwise good camera and the absence of 3G hobbles the S5560's internet features.

An above average five-megapixel camera on an average handset

Find yourself outside of a Wi-Fi hotspot and you?ll have to put up with the sluggish EDGE data speeds

Review: Samsung S5560 Marvel. Mid-Range and Marvellous

 

The Samsung S5560 Marvel is a mid-range touchscreen phone to get Samsung fans excited. It's packed with features including a 5 megapixel camera with auto focus and flash, and can be snapped up on a reasonably priced plan. What else has it got going for...

Samsung S5560 Marvel Review by 3G.co.uk

 

There's nothing new about the Marvel, but it's a good all-rounder

The five-megapixel camera is more than we would expect on a handset at this price

Outside a Wi-Fi area, internet speeds are slow, and the touch-screen is not the easiest to get to grips with

There’s nothing new about the Marvel, but it's a good all-rounder for a decent price.

Громкость звонка хороша, аппарат слышно в разных условиях, в том числе и на шумной улице. Виброзвонок средний или чуть лучше, некоторые пользователи отмечают, что не замечают его.
