Samsung Z540 review: Slim 3G clamshell


In the end of last year Samsung announced their UMTS slim clamshell Z540. This review comes quite late, but yet we decided to publish one since the 3G black beauty is still an attractive proposition. The impressive display in a thin UMTS clamshell...

Samsung Z540 Cell Phone Review


Imagine an ultra slim, slender, stylish and vivid 3G phone - the Samsung Z540 is ready for its close-up. At only 14.9mm thin, the Samsung Z540 is a powerful 3G phone that makes other slim phones jealous. And with its 1.3 megapixel camera, music player...

Good video and sound quality,

Samsung SGH-Z540V review


Samsung squeezes down 3G dimensions but not performance

Small and lightweight 3G phone ; Quality megapixel camera ; Full range of broadband services

Memory can't be expanded ; Loudspeaker performance ; Only available from Vodafone

As an entry point into 3G, you couldn't find much better

Over the last few months a flurry of RAZR clones has appeared. Some of these are actually new versions of Motorola's old flagship, but many others are...

Slim, Looks great, High quality screen

Battery life a little lacking, No card slot

A great option for 3G users. If you need a slim video phone, the Samsung Z540 is a perfect choice.

Samsung Z540


Stylish design, a slim form factor, zippy performance, and great ergonomics help make the Z540 shine.

Stylish ; Responsive ; Comfortable to use

Short battery life

All up, the slim form factor, zippy performance, large buttons and clear screen help make the Z540 a winner for those looking for a stylish phone for business or personal use. It may not offer all the bells and whistles of a smartphone, but the...

Samsung Z540


Having established the course for releasing more and more œslim and sleek models, Samsung aims at extending its mobile line-up with more units; so almost each newcomer to the medium-end line turns out to be another thin handset. Almost simultaneously...

The main material, the casing is made of, is high-grade plastic, which provides excellent surface quality, hardly gets soiled and not exposed to wear and tear much. The shell itself is quite soft, but again, scratches become visible only after long...

Samsung SGH-Z540V 3G Phone Review


Blimey, the Z540V looks so much better in person than these Samsung photos portray it. Looking at these photos, I would immediately discount the handset as a damp squid out of its depth surrounded by sharks.

A lightweight and useful 3G conender. Looks the part.

No memory card means just 140MB internal memory to play with. Camera seems a tad low spec.
