Talking about the Samsung Monte Slider E2550 sounds as though we got an awesome handset here. However, the phone seems to have drawbacks just by looking at the features. Though the handset got a pretty stylish and slim exterior, the specs seem quite laid back.
Let’s see how the Monte Slider E2550 handset fares with its specs and features.
Monte Slider E2550 Specs and Features
- Dimensions: 98.5 × 48.5 × 14.35 mm
- Mass: 86 grams
- Network: GSM Dual Band GPRS (900/ 1800)
- Display: 2-inch QQVGA 262K TFT
- 12MB memory onboard
- MicroSD expansion of up to 8GB
- Connectivity: Bluetooth 2.1, USB 2.0
- 1.3 MP camera with video capture capability
- FM Radio with RDS, FM Recording
- MP3 and MP4 player
- Mobile SNS (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)
- SOS Message/ Mobile Tracker/ Fake Call
- Battery: 800 mAh promising up to 6 hours of talk time or 16 days stand by time
It’s a good thing that the Monte Slider comes with social networking integration which is pretty much sought after in a mobile phone. On the other hand, its small screen, unimpressive camera and the lack of 3G only goes to say that we have just a basic phone here.
There isn’t much detail given yet about this average slider handset, but we can only suppose that the company will give an attractive price for the Monte Slider as there isn’t anything much going for it.
But if I had to describe the Monte Slider E2550 handset, I’d say it is underpowered.
