Samsung X830 review: The small big player


The controversial Samsung X830 won't leave you indifferent. It is a MP3 player with 1 GB of built-in memory on one hand, and a mobile phone, supporting Bluetooth and EDGE on the other hand. The unusual design also draws the attention – it will amuse...

The provided battery is Li-Ion with capacity of 800 mAh and maximum indicated lifetime of 120 h in stand-by and 3 h of talk time. The real values move about two and a half days in stand-by mode. Using the music functions shortens the battery charging...

Samsung SGH-X830 Black


The Samsung X830 is half Mp3 player and half phone. The X830 looks exactly like an iPod when closed. In my opinion the X830 is the Samsung version of the "iPhone". When closed the phone looks like a normal MP3 player but when open looks like a cell...

Samsung X830 Cell Phone Review

Samsung SGH-X830


Just when you thought Samsung just couldn't get any snazzier looking or more generous... along comes the Samsung SGH-X830- a very unique breakthrough in ergonomic cell phone design. Its numeric keys are laid out in 2 columns instead of 3 (like typical...

The front panel of this sliding phone rotates to display the keypad- but that's only the beginning of what's hiding under the hood

Samsung X830


Looking more like an MP3 player than a mobile phone, the Samsung X830 is a stylish, if unconventional handset that swivels open to reveal a unique, tw...

Decent in-call quality, music player, drag-and-drop file transfer, A2DP, 1GB internal memory

No hands-free speakerphone, no memory storage slot, scroll wheel performance, swivel build quality, two column keypad, camera button in awkward place, Bluetooth only 1.2, average battery life

The Samsung X830 is a fashion-orientated phone with a unique design and quite a good music player. Unfortunately, it sacrifices too many features to deem it a worthwhile purchase.

Samsung's scroll-wheel equipped, rotating SGH-X830 will catch the eye, and ear, of music fans.

Samsung X830


A music-focused phone with 1GB of internal memory, the X830 and its compact contours are intriguing, but usability has been sacrificed for looks.

Compact size ; Swift and satisfying flick motion ; Easy to transfer music

No expandable memory ; Two-column keypad takes a while to get used to ; Scrollwheel navigation very slow ; Very small display

All up the X830 is certainly a conversation starter due to its dimensions, music player and the super-quick flick motion it opens with, but there have been a few sacrifices when it comes to usability. It's probably best to view it as an MP3 player that...
