Samsung SGH U600 (blue, unlocked)


Though a cell phone is only as good as the calls it makes, manufacturers continue to push high-end models as the future of the mobile world. We're not talking about business-centric smartphones here; rather we speak of handsets with snazzy multimedia...

The Samsung U600 has an attractive design with a gorgeous display. It offers a decent selection of features, including Bluetooth and a quality camera

The Samsung U600 had passable call quality, and the speakerphone wasn't very usable. Also, it lacks voice dialing and we didn't like the push controls

The Samsung U600 is more than just a beauty, but it won't please the most demanding cell phone users.

Samsung U600 review: Slim is sweet


It seems Samsung really takes making sleek looking and ultra thin mobile phones to heart. It's no wonder that the Samsung Ultra lineup has become a significant part of the company's mobile portfolio. We got hold of another Ultra Series II member, the...

Great looking and very well built ; Navigation combining touch-sensitive and standard keys ; Camera with 3.2 megapixel resolution and autofocus ; EDGE ; Large display with great image quality ; microSD memory card slot ; Seamless PC connectivity and...

Weak sunlight legibility ; No 3G ; User interface is on the slow side ; Confirm key starts the web browser in stand-by ; Keys within the same row have no distinguishable borders and typos are likely ; Battery life is not among the best

Samsung U600 is considered to be the runner-up for leadership in the Ultra line II, behind Samsung U700, but that is not completely true. Actually the two phones come from two different research and development centers of Samsung and we would prefer to...

Review: Samsung SGH-U600


Samsung has put a lot of effort lately into its "world's thinnest" stable of handsets. One of which, the U600 slider, is the subject of Sam's latest review. While not finding it to be perfect, Sam comes away from the U600 pleased overall.

Design, durable, good camera, good image editor

Potential text entry issues, inconsistent touch controls, stiff shutter key

Samsung SGH-U600 camera phone


The beautiful, slim Samsung SGH-U600 camera phone surprises, not only with its good looks, but also with its touch-sensitive keys. The product comes with a 3.2 megapixel camera, MP3 player, FM radio, and other features, including the ability to project...

We actually liked the Samsung SGH-U600 a great deal, but are hesitant to give it a higher score because of two potential issues that may bother many phone owners. We liked it because it is a slim and elegant product. It has an excellent screen with...

SGH-U600 Review


Another commending design is the 3.2 megapixel camera located behind the back. It is wisely hidden under the back panel, so it is protected when not in use. The U600's spring-loaded slide mechanism is smooth and pops open with a small push

Samsung U600 (Ultra 10.9)


Samsung Ultra Edition 10.9 (U600) includes a unique and stylish interface for the ultimate sophistication and usability. It also comes equipped with a 3.2 megapixel camera encased in an ultra slim profile and boasting a 2.22inch wide TFT LCD widescreen.

Once setup, i gave it a shot and found that it is pretty useful. Since i get a lot of emails from forums, i just set the email check to manual.
