Samsung middle model 'is not mediocre'
24 December 2008 — 11:17 AM
A new handset from Samsung has been praised as a mid-range mobile that is not plagued by mediocrity.
Pocket Gamer states this week that the South Korean manufacturer's U800 bucks the trend of other phones in its class by being available at a reasonable price and not selling buyers short in terms of features.
Available for around £140 on pay-as-you-go tariffs - which could make it an interesting proposition for those who have just secured cash for old mobiles - the article pays particular attention to its style and connectivity.
In addition to a highly polished stainless-steel finish that hides its affordable price tag, the site notes HSDPA high-speed data transfer and video calling make it worthy of praise.
"This is a phone you'll be more than proud to have about your person," it concludes, adding that the "welcome inclusion of HSDPA" makes up for other "shortcomings" such as limited camera and multimedia facilities.
The Samsung U800 is also 3G, GPRS and EDGE-enabled - with a three-megapixel camera built-in.
