It's an unfortunate fact of life that there's usually little to get worked up about Samsung phones. The Samsung D840 seems to be a rather unnecessary clone of the D900 – it manages to look like its predecessor in many respects. The phone is slightly...

To sum up, the phone really doesn't excite me. Right from form factor to features, there is nothing that will give you pride of ownership. It costs Rs 10,100 with bill and warranty, and while this isn't very expensive, you get plenty of other good...

Samsung SGH-D840 mobile phone review

 

It looks amazing" was what the PR man on behalf of Samsung wanted us to say, and compared to other Ultra Edition models we would have to agree. The D840 is the company's pseudo fashion looking phone. Opting for, the now fashionable again silver, the...

Slim, easy to use, great slider mechanism, 2 megapixel camera

Not that fashion focused, Mrs Pocket-lint didn't seem that bothered by the design

A strong competent model, but the "It looks amazing" comment is stretching it a touch too far

Thin, sleek and slidy, Samsung's Ultra range has plenty of fans. We check out the latest handset.

A test page I use for mobiles is composed of simple HTML with a few jpegs and is organised using tables rendered very well in Desktop view, with only vertical scrolling required. The TrustedReviews home page is a different story. Much slower to load,...

The Samsung D840 is an attractive slider phone that looks like it was partly designed by Mercedes. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the features to match and while it's similar to LG's Shine, we think Samsung could have done slightly better

Attractive design ; Expandable microSD slot

Lack of auto-focus on the camera ; Flat keypad can be awkward to use ; No FM radio ; No 3.5mm adaptor

Alternatively, if it's an envy-inducing fashion phone you're after, then you might want to check out the LG Prada

Samsung's super-slim slider looks like a Shine-worrier, but can it impress more than just the fashion set?

A Shine that the boys can be seen with, although its camera and aerial need to build a bit of muscle

The Samsung D840 is set to challenge the LG Shine for the fashion phone throne. But, under the metallic exterior, has it got what it takes?…

Just like the D900, it is a pleasure to use and handle

Its signature Ultra slider design can't compete with the more stylish LG Shine

Samsung hasn't moved the D840's design on enough to excite.

In the year of 2006 Samsung has been into œslim handsets " in this field the company has established special line-ups, specifically Ultra Thin Edition, gathering three different form-factors: candy-bar, folder and slider (X820, D830 and D900...

Look-alike models have been the major trend for Samsung in 2006 unfortunately, Samsung D840 doesn't have a unique face either. Sharing many details and specs with the flagship brings along some benefits, but the fact that more entry-level offerings,...

The D840 should appeal to those attracted by the D900 or E900 but looking for something a bit different.
