Samsung U800 Soul b review: As busy as a

 

Inspiration is one thing you can't deny the Samsung Soul lineup. Well, that goes to the Ultra too, though all of them thin and sexy handsets are pretty much doomed to oblivion by their own offspring. Back in the day, we said the original U900 Soul was...

2.0" 16M-color TFT LCD display of QVGA resolution ; 3G with HSDPA (3.6Mbps) support ; 1GB of onboard memory, microSD expansion ; Nice and responsive D-pad ; Cool brushed metal casing ; Just 9.9mm thickness ; 3 megapixel camera with LED flash ; FM radio...

Tri-band only ; Camera has no auto focus ; Somewhat slow interface response ; Slow first-time access of the microSD card ; Limited browser capabilities ; QCIF video recording at most

might be another option to consider

Samsung Soulb Review

 

The slider Soul was the founder of the new Samsung series of fashion oriented, multifunctional phones. The second phone carrying the idea of the line is called Soulb and is the object of this review. The device is solid (doesn't open or slide) and...

Samsung U800

 

Samsung's certainly churning the phones out lately and the U800 is yet another vying for mass appeal.

Nor has the extra space gone to the numberpad. This is a flat pad with horizontal ridges separating the button rows. Each button has quite a tactile feel to it, and Samsung's usual plinks and plonks provide further confirmation that you've pressed a...

The U800 looks clean and modern, is easy to use and has a good range of features. As well as supporting HSDPA for fast downloads, it has dual cameras with realistic colour reproduction. If you were hankering after a Nokia 6500 Classic, we'd seriously...

Design ; Good battery life ; Excellent range of features

Average music player ; Camera lacks autofocus

Conclusion We're impressed with the U800's blend of stylish good looks, no-nonsense menu system and powerful features, such as the HSDPA support. If you were considering Nokia's 6500 Classic then we'd seriously advise you to look at this Samsung, as it...

Samsung U800 Review - Updated with Later Impressions

 

The Samsung U800 is a slim and stylish handset that packs in an array of features…

A stylish handset with decent entertainment and internet features

A rather basic music player and slightly clunky messaging menu

A handsome slimline phone but it could do with a more streamlined user interface.

Samsung U800

 

Mid-range marvel or middle-of-the-road mishap?

A desirable design coupled with a half-decent set of features results in a mobile that is worth looking into if you’re shopping on a budget – just don't expect the cutting-edge luxuries associated with more costly handsets

Samsung U800 review

 

We review the Samsung U800, the ultra-thin candybar relation of the Soul, and see if this HSDPA equipped, 1GB-packing handset has the right touch

Ultra-slim and elegant design ; Solid-feel metal casing ; HSDPA high-speed multimedia capabilities ; 1GB internal storage plus MicroSD card expansion ; 3 megapixel camera with flash ; 3.5mm headphone jack adapter on decent earphones

Doesn't have Soul's touch control capabilities ; Average screen ; Camera has no autofocus; images unexceptional ; No Wi-Fi

A super-thin, classy looking handset that combines a decent mid-tier set of 3G multimedia features and a reliable performance

Product Specifications

The soul is reincarnated with this version of the very popular design. Although the Samsung U800 Soul B loses the touch screen in favor of a down to earth navigation ring, the beauty and charm that made the Soul such a hit is back in spades. The exclusively silver design only hints at the charm that lies in the features of this phone. The keys are easy to press and are flanked above by menu navigation buttons. The only extra decoration comes from the brushed steel body that gives the phone an air of sophistication. The MicroSD slot can house extra files such as music and pictures. Though there is a Gigabyte of shared memory, the card slot helps you get all the files you want onto the phone without adding extra bulk.3G connectivity is a highlight of the phone¿s connections here. With 3G data transfers are faster than ever and since this is the wireless signal that will soon be the standard. All the phones that don¿t support it are going to be left out.USB and Bluetooth enable you to connect the phone to the computer to transfer files from your collection into the memory card. With Bluetooth you¿ll be able to connect a variety of headsets and talk on the phone without the phone occupying your hands. Finally the 3.15 Megapixel camera provides the kicker to this phone¿s appeal. With video support, and LED flash, and a secondary videocall camera, this phone has you covered in all circumstances.
