>Review Samsung I600


After producing the series of SGH-i300 that uses OS Windows Mobile for the domestic market, currently was present the series of SGH-i600, that also used OS that was same. However this new series, has been supplied new technology that was more complete and better. Including the network 3G and HSDPA. By vendor SGH-i600 was given by the nickname black Jack. With provisions of high multimedia of the application capacity, SGH-i600 entered the group smart messaging device.

DESIGN, SGH -i600 was present with the concept qwerty pad, that was clear was allocated for the ease of text typing, the email et cetera. Despite, the switch qwerty pad was compiled rather close, so as to need the adaptation of some time before smooth used. And the attendance qwerty pad also brought the consequences of the measurement body the wide cellular phone.

But don’t worry, body that was wide that did not bring the problem when being used. We continued to be able to operate the cellular phone with one hand. Despite, stayed more comfortable when operating the switch with two hands. Possibly not rather comfortable when being stuck on ears, when did voice call, as well as not more just right also if you tried to keep him in the pocket of trousers.

THIN, i600 continued to bring the family’s Ultra Edition accent, that was famous with thin. The smart cellular phone impression that usually sticky with body that was thick and big, was not encountered in this cellular phone, that had body tight. Indeed appear at first glance resembled E61 Nokia or Blackberry 8707v. However the black color dominant as well as the design body that was typical, as well as the weight that was minor for the measurement smartphone (105 gram), became the distinguishing feature with two cellular phones. SGH-i600 had the dimension 113 x 59 x 11,8 mm and heavy 105 gram.

SCREEN, Once more that was appropriate lined supervised was his screen that was wide. Measuring 46 x 36 mm, could accommodate five lines the text, but his one line could be so long. His screen only used the TFT kind 65 thousand colors, but Samsung reliability in the matter of technology screen, did not need to be made again hesitate. Like available in i600, his screen was so sharp and clear.

OFFICE, Begun with the use of the Windows Mobile operation system the series 5,0 to smartphone. Designing the typical Windows menu, that could be put forward with list or grid, really facilitated for the menu exploration.

Now the matter of the office application. This cellular phone had what was named picsel viewer. This application was useful to open and read various file with the format word, excel, power point and PDF. So, we remained kept files this in the cellular phone memory, then was used to carry out the presentation. Unfortunately, picsel viewer did not enable did editing or made the document new. Only was limited was opened and read then.

NAVIGATION, The menu was facilitated with two choices of the switch. Through navigation key four available directions below screen, or through wheel button available on the side body the cellular phone. Wheel button this, when being pressed, functioned also as the switch select. If only was touch screen, definitely more again fascinating.

PUSH EMAIL and INTERNET, Support to mobile office other was facilities push the email, that enabled us got alert the email that entered, like to Blackberry. And that was clear, owing to the attendance of the network 3G and HSDPA, surfing the internet became more comfortable, despite coverage available still was limited. Or, if by chance was in the hotspot area, also could carry out the connection with Wi-Fi, that in the test, moderate satisfactory.

MUSIC, After Office application, i600 also was supplied with the standard of other multimedia. Mentioned for example, music player that could play various formats file (including WMA, MP3, AAC+, OGG, ASF).

CAMERA, The camera is 1.3 Mpix, could be used to photograph and record a video. But the matter of the quality of the voice his music just so-so, and also was not equipped equalizer to maximize the quality of the voice. Was not the matter, this cellular phone indeed more was allocated for mobile office, compared with mobile entertainment.

MEMORY, SGH -i600 had the CREAM capacity 128 MB and RAM 64 of MB. Memory was still being increased with the Micro SD. The capacity Micro SD card support that the ray was used through to 1 GB.

With RSS (rich site summery) Reader, in a manner continued us could get the summary or the headlines from various sites of the news and always in-up date automatically. As the note, the site that could in-list also had the RSS version.

PICSEL VIEWER, This application indeed really helped to check the document (word, excel, power point, PDF), when we were being apart from the office. The colleague in the office could send file the document through the email, and afterward was opened in the cellular phone.

BATTERY, Samsung i600 was supplied with the battery power of 1200 mAh with the battery type lithium the ion. Energy provisions as big as that, this series could be used to speak stopped till 6.5 hours, and alert time till 305 hours.
