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

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


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...

A terrific Mobile Phone


I bought this because it has a Touch Screen, which makes it easier to scroll through applications, it does Video Recording, it has a Social Network Application, it has wireless internet and it comes with a GPS.

Excellent Features and Price ; Fits in your pocket ; Stylish design ; It is just like an iPhone so I wouldn't waste my money on Apple stuff as it is crap

It doesn't have a Full Qwerty Keyboard on screen

Consumer review by:
