New "small and classy" Samsung reviewed
28 October 2009 — 2:00 PM
A new Samsung handset has been put to the test which may interest those recycling mobile phones.
The South Korean manufacturer's SGH-A887 Solstice was recently described as a "small, classy-looking device" that comes with a user-friendly touchscreen and solid battery performance by Ricky Cadden.
In a piece for Mobile Burn, the expert said the device falls a little short on photography, music and other multimedia facilities, but added that internet software is some of the best yet on a non-smartphone.
"Happily, the web browser is fantastic, with helpful features and the ability to quickly switch between phone mode and full desktop mode," he explained, concluding that overall the site recommended the model.
A review posted on the Cnet website in April this year listed the SGH-A887 Solstice's user interface as a highlight and, contrary to the Mobile Burn piece, said the camera was "quite good".
