Samsung E2550

Samsung takes the minimum the E2550 and takes a simple phone to make phone calls and texting at the start.

  1. Samsung E2550
  2. Data sheet

Whether as back for cellular newbies or as a second phone for the next trip – with the Samsung E2550 is the mobile world is gently closer to laymen and an easy to use mobile phone at a fixed price on the hand. South Koreans quoted 129 euro for the slider phone baptised on the middle name of Monte, lie in the Internet offers far below the 70-euro mark.

As can be expected of course no top-class facilities. The dual band mobile radio only in the 2G-Betrieb for this but at least with the EDGE data Accelerator, and provides a basis for mobile social networking – with pre-installed clients around for Facebook and my space given to: at a fairly low level. However, the almost mandatory even in the low-budget field E-Mail client is not provided here.

What you can expect as a beginner of an everyday companion, can meet but confidently the Samsung E2550: no questions remain open with uncomplicated menu structure and intuitive operating concept – each setting option can be found behind the menu item to be expected, while the Navigationskey and the two context sensitive soft buttons follow a logical pattern. Short messages can be on the tangible hardly defined numeric keypad not quite optimal, after a short adjustment period but still quite good tap.

Phone, the Samsung E2550 with acceptable is fine suitable acoustic values and an ordinary energy management – what is due to the modest hardware equipment – of course. In the display, the low price comes to fruition: with a resolution of 128 x 160 pixels, 2 inch the appearance of menu icons and entries is visibly coarse pixels already, which is why the preinstalled Web browser rather invites you to smile as the surfing. The housing material used comes noticeably from the second quality League, but properly processed; especially the slider mechanism makes a solid and stable impression.
