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...

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

The Samsung S5620 Monte has both 3G with HSDPA and Wi-Fi for browsing and data, and a built-in GPS receiver for location services. The Monte has a capable web browser (with Flash support) and a decently sized 3” screen. The GPS can also transform the...

Samsung S5620 Monte Review

 

Samsung S5620 Monte promises to be a good mid-range multimedia phone with a decent camera and good music player at an affordable price.

Trendy & portable, weighs hardly 92g, Wider 3-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen, User friendly interface with social networking integration

Lacks hardware keypad, Touchscreen interface is sluggish and unresponsive

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...

Responsive, has plenty of connectivity options and ; social networking integration

No DivX/XviD support

Just to keep things short, the Samsung Monte S5620 has maximized the power of feature phones to a certain level that no one would ever dare underestimate their capabilities again. Unfortunately though, phones are getting smarter and smarter, if you...

Samsung S5620 Monte announced

 

Bringing in their cool TouchWiz UI empowered phone on the brink of World Mobile Congress, Samsung has totally caught us unawares. The Samsung S5620 Monte comes in barely a week before the big event. Besides the sexy UI it also has a cool 3 inch WQVGA...

Samsung Monte S5620

 

The S5620 Monte does look quite stylish and interesting, but some of the other features can best be regarded as being mundane but useful. The 3" 240 x 400 pixel touchscreen display is a fairly standard TFT panel that is similar to many others on the...

Samsung Monte Slider review

 

There are many phones that try to blind us with science and attempt to push the envelope to find yet more uses and functionality for our pocket pals. And there are some phones that really just want to be phones. Somewhere between two is the Samsung...

Small and light, good build quality

Slow internet access, fuzzy screen, poor music player, slow processor, no data cable, no headphone jack

A basic phone with some smart phone-like features, but it ain’t no smartphone

Expert review by:

Samsung Monte review

 

The Samsung Monte has the looks and the specs, but does it have the brains?

Great design ; Good battery life ; Surprisingly good camera ; Lots of connectivity options ; Strong, fast 3G coverage

Laggy touch controls ; Slow software ; Browser crashes regularly ; Some confusing UI design ; No social integration with contacts

When it comes down to it, we just can't recommend the Monte. It gets the basic functions right, so we commend it for that, but it's so frustrating to use.
