The device could be a money-saving option

In an article for Cnet this week, Flora Graham looked at the pros and cons of the Samsung Lucido S7220 and said that although it is nothing particularly special, it will appeal to some.

She explained the phone is "perfectly adequate" in the way it looks and feels, but points out that those looking for an affordable and reliable option may wish to consider it.

Available free on £35 monthly contracts or without a sim card for around £140, Ms Graham noted the device was by no means the top-of-the-range, but praised the integrated five-megapixel camera.

Video recording, microSD card support, a fake call feature and HSDPA connectivity of up to 7.2 Mbps were among the other items highlighted.

"It's easy to use and not expensive, so if you like your phones traditional and fingerprint-proof, it could still be the choice for you," the reviewer concluded.

Last week the expert heaped praise on Nokia's similarly-priced 6303 Classic.
