IFA 2007 Report: 5 megapixel Samsung SGH-G600 cameraphone
5 megapixel Samsung G600 is another Samsung phone prominently displayed at IFA Berlin. It’s Samsung’s answer to Sony Ericsson K850i Cybershot and Nokia N95 camerphones, at least where imaging function is concerned.
Apart from the camera, Samsung SGH-G600 is not that much different from any other Samsung slider.
I had the opportunity to play with the camera on Samsung G600 and can say that for a cameraphone it works pretty well.
The camera on Samsung SGH-G600 is hidden beneath the sliding cover. Before taking pictures, you have to open the slider, which felt pretty strange at first. But you get used to it pretty fast.
Samsung G600 camera is easy to access and use, has a dedicated shutter keys and various modes for taking pictures. These include normal mode with autofocus, panorama, mosaic mode with visual effects and multi-picture mode with up to 15 pictures taken in quick succession. The quality of the pictures themselves is pretty similar to the one you get on Nokia N95.
Overall Samsung SGH G600 is a solid, well deigned phone with really good camera features. The only thing that may be lacking is the support for high speed 3G data networks.
