Samsung SGH-X820 - black (Unlocked) review:

 

Yet again Samsung jumps ahead in the race to produce the world's thinnest cell phone with its new SGH-X820. Billed as the world's thinnest candy bar phone--though not for long, we're sure--the SGH-X820 is even trimmer than the already superslim Samsung...

The Samsung SGH-X820 has an attractive, thin design and an admirable feature set that includes Bluetooth, a speakerphone, and a 2-megapixel camera. It's a good performer, too.

The Samsung SGH-X820's memory is rather small, and it lacks hands-free dialing capability. Picture quality and call volume level could be better.

Despite some minor performance quibbles and a couple of missing features, the Samsung SGH-X820 is a nice blend of design, features, and performance.

Samsung X820 review: Just for the record

 

6.9 mm - this is how thin the slimmest mobile phone in the world is. At the same time Samsung X820 offers rich features, a comfortable keypad, and a brilliant display. Even so, it remains just a bit from real perfection.

We live in a world defined by categories as the biggest, the most beautiful, the smartest... and everyone is trying to outperform the others... Well, it seems that the Korean manufacturer Samsung has managed to do so in the mobile world by creating...

Samsung SGH-X820

 

The Samsung SGH-X820, the world's slimmest phone, does an amazing number of things with beauty and grace.

The thinnest phone in the world. Excellent Bluetooth capabilities. Many powerful functions.

No memory card slot. Battery life could be better. Sold only through independent retailers.

Samsung SGH-X820 Concise Review

 

With the X820, Samsung has managed to create an exceptionally thin (0.27 inches or 6.9 mm) and solid construction and also incorporate vivid display, 80MB memory and 2-megapixel camera and keep the weight at 2.3 oz (66 g)

Small size, 6.9mm thickness, well-made ; 2-megapixel camera with high resolution for video capture ; Wonderful sound quality both for rigning and during conversation

The Display is impossible to see in bright light ; No memory extension slot ; Slight lag when navigating through the menus

Samsung SGH-X820 review

 

The Samsung P300 was both innovative and successful, but now Samsung has now gone a step further and taken the lead with the Samsung SGH-X820, which at 6.9 mm is the slimmest phone in the world. I wouldn't be surprised if other manufacturers go down...

Review: Samsung SGH-X820

 

Excellent portability, good multimedia functions for its size, good keypad, excellent build, document viewer

Lack of vibra-ring, average battery life, lack of USB Mass Storage mode, absence of ringtone profiles

The Samsung SGH-X820 is one of the strongest devices in Samsung's line up this year, and it will probably make it into the company's history.

First Looks: Samsung SGH-X820 Ultra Edition

 

The world's slimmest phone, the SGH-X820 Ultra Edition, is Samsung's latest push for technological leadership which at 6.9mm thick is a phone that is as much a technological marvel as it is practical.
