Samsung has come back with a new slider that namely Samsung C3050 a month ago. This phone is geared to the masses not only in its features, but its price as well. The budget market for mobile phones is growing, as people either need a cheap phone or a replacement for lost or stolen handsets, obviously the Samsung C3050 fits into this particular niche.
C3050 is a typical Samsung sliding style phone. The handset is claded in classic midnight black casing, and has a lightweight 86 gram with full dimensions of 97 x 47.3 x 14.9 millimetres. The 128 x 160 pixels large screen is no big deal, it is only QVGA but it’s kind of okay in this category. Below the display lies the five-way d-pad, the center OK key is so large even an ogre could press it. Sliding down unveiled the keypad has a bright white backlight, but unfortunately it’s made of a single panel, so the keys are not separated enough. Still, text entry is not very problematic, we’ll only have to get used to the bit stiff pressure point.
The Samsung C3050 provides a camera which is VGA quality and at a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels and is suitable for photo taking whilst on the move. Consider it is only VGA quality, it is nothing much can say about it. But as in it range, the camera is more than enough.
In term of music, users can entertained by the integrated music player of the mobile phone that supports MP3 audio format. It can run in the background, we can choose between a couple of equalizer presets, while the tracks are sorted by ID3 tags. They may also opt to listen to FM radio that is integrated in the handset.
To play games, there are six java games on the phone, but only the first, Sudoku, is a full version software. The others are demos, Samsung will ask us to pay and download them after a couple of levels. However, its still allows users to download games in Java format from the Internet.
