Samsung is known for its cheap mobile phones and well yes they are known for stylish phones as well. It is always nice to hear about the new Samsung releases as the phones will have something new. Samsung has captured a good level in the market using its AMOLED display phones and on the other hand using cheap phones. The next best part of Samsung is the smartphones they introduce and almost all the phones are hit, Cory series is the best of all. Samsung C3050 is one such cheap phone which has attracted many mobile lovers towards it in the recent past.
Samsung C3050 is fully made of plastic which is the largest disadvantage of the phone. Samsung has made even the keys in plastic. There is no clue why this has been done but it is guessed that this might be done to reduce the price of the phone. It is quite hard to use the buttons as it is made of plastic but not that much tough to operate. The phone has a 2 inch TFT screen which occupied the most part of the phone while the keypad is present inside the top slider panel. The slider is good when compared with the other models from Samsung and it can be said that it is far better than others. The central big button present helps in easy navigation to the menu and two keys are present on each side of the center button. The phone has a 0.3 Megapixels camera at the back panel without a flash light. The picture quality is not that much good as it had grains even in the images taken during day time. The volume adjuster is present on the left side of the phone while the speaker on the right side.
Samsung C3050 comes with an in-built memory of 20MB which is expandable. This phone supports formats like MP3, WMA, ACC and WAV. There is an in-built MP3 player present which gives a reasonable hearing experience. The phone has other extra features like FM Radio, Calendar, alarm clock and calculator. Connectivity is taken care by the Bluetooth, GPRS and EDGE. The phone can handle 1000 contact books storage. Samsung C3050 does not feature any games by default but it can be loaded.
The main drawback of the phone is the plastic body as there are instances where the phone got broken as well. The second main is the call quality. The call quality is very poor which sounds even awkward at times. The call drop issue has been reported many times by the users which also pull down the popularity of the Samsung C3050 in the market.
One of the largest advantages of this phone is the Batter backup hours. Samsung C3050 has a very good battery backup time of around 10 hours and stand by time of two weeks. Price of the phone is the second main advantage as you can not find a slider phone for this price. If the plan is to purchase a cheap slider phone then it can be Samsung C3050 without any doubt.
