The phone could slip snugly into your back pocket

Samsung has launched a new handset that could be of interest to those recycling mobile phones for a smaller more pocketable option, it has been suggested.

In an article for Mobile Burn this week, Ricky Cadden looked at the South Korean company's new SGH-T749 Highlight and noted that it was a model that had many attractive features.

He explained that the 109 x 53 x 13 mm dimensions make it feel "surprisingly good in your hand" and as the gadget weighs only 105 g this makes it comfortable to carry around.

Mr Cadden went on to say that this does not mean the Samsung SGH-T749 Highlight is without its share of features, as it boasts a three-inch WQVGA touchscreen, 3.2-megapixel camera and support for 3G.

He concluded the front panel was "extremely bright and easy to read", praising the "robust" contacts options and "nice" web browsing software.

The expert reviewed the Samsung SGH-T559 Comeback earlier this month but was less kind to the phone, noting it had "more annoyances than advantages".
