Samsung S5620 Monte review: Well connected

 

Affordable touch phones are all over the place so the Samsung S5620 Monte will have to win the old fashioned way – by giving more and better features. Done deal: with full-suit connectivity, the Monte aims to deliver great touch experience...

Quad-band GSM/EDGE, UMTS 900/2100, HSDPA 3.6 Mbps ; 3" capacitive TFT touchscreen of WQVGA resolution, 256K colors ; TouchWiz 2.0 Plus user interface with multitasking support ; 200 MB onboard storage, hot-swappable microSD card slot (up to 16GB) ; 3...

Free GPS navigation is for Czech Montes only ; No on-screen QWERTY keyboard ; Flash in browser eats too much RAM, can't play YouTube videos ; No games preinstalled ; Task manager cannot be used for switching between apps

Samsung Monte S5620

 

We've hard had some face-time with the Samsung Monte (S5620) and I thought it's a nice little touchscreen phone. It's got most features of high-end phones without the expensive price tag.

Samsung Monte S5620 - Socially connected

 

With so many affordable touchscreen phones out there, we thought the Samsung Monte S5620 was just another option that will soon be forgotten. Having a good look, however, at its spec sheet and its suggested retail price, and trying it out for...
