The Budget Priced Samsung E1100 Makes an Entrance
The Samsung E1100 is a budget phone which comes with features normally expected on a phone which is price higher than it is. The unit is a sturdy handset which is compact and provides the means to perform numerous tasks. It is 105mm x 44mm wide and is 14mm thick. It weighs only 70 grams which makes it one of the lightest phones on the mobile market. It is sleek and stylish and in some respects is difficult to differentiate between other more expensive models.
The phone comes with a CSTN style display screen which is 1.5 inches in size with the ability to display 65,000 colours and their variants. The screen is simple and effective and more or less what you would expect on a budget phone. Navigation is via a 5 way button on the front of the phone and makes accessing functions easy and user friendly.
The phone provides the means to utilise either vibration or ring alert types. Downloaded polyphonic or Mp3 ringtones can be used and offers individual choice. A speakerphone is provided for hands free operation, which is always a useful facility.
Connectivity is provided by the GPRS and EDGE connections which are both class 10. SMS and WAP are available on the phone to provide a means of contact and browsing. The phone provides a variety of additional features which include a flashlight, for illumination of dimly lit areas whilst out and about. An organiser which can be used for keeping track of appointments and important dates. A handy voice memo facility provides the means to record voice notes whilst on the move and negates the need for pen and paper.
The Samsung E1100 is a competent mobile phone which offers the consumer a budget alternative to other phones such as the Samsung Jet, which may have more functionality but is also more expensive as you would expect. For a simple phone that receives and makes phone calls but also looks good, this phone is hard to beat.
