Samsung F490 review

Samsung F490 review. Introduction You don’t need to be a prophet to be able to tell that for most mobile phone vendors, this year will be the year that they are able to start really competing with the iPhone. Each one of them is reacting to the success of Apple in one way or another, and presenting their own version of “iPhone killer/wannabe” to the market. Even if competing with the iPhone isn’t the company’s intention, the users...

On cellphone features and functions. Nostalgia for Nokia 6310

Remember this handset? Yes, it is a legendary Nokia 6310. This is THE model, that in my mind is firmly associated with the idea of “business-phone” or “functional phone” (from the times since these two terms practically meant the same thing).

Frankly speaking, until recently the Korean handset maker didn’t have any Symbian smartphones worth a look and the ones it...

Samsung Armani P520 review

A few years ago, in a competitive struggle among two Korean vendors, the rules usually were set by Samsung and LG was playing catch-up. But, during the past few years, the trend has changed and today more often then not, LG comes-up with a new phone model/idea, that makes Samsung take a closer look at it’s inventory and start scrambling to catch-up. This happened to KG800 Chocolate (with Samsung SGH-E900 as a response). The the...
