“SAMSUNG TAMPAX PHONE **”

published 23/09/2008

good features, small and lightweight

too small for some

The Samsung SGH X830 is a slim line swivel phone which is very small and light weight. The size of the phone is W30 X H84 X D20 mm and its total weight is a small and impressive 72g. Some people may think that because the phone is as small that it may not be as good as some other mobile phones on...

“gr8 for music”

long battery life and an mp3 player built in

the buttons

i puchased my phone off O2 as everyone i know is with them, the only thing is they only had this phone in white, which to be honest i would not recommend. The phone shows up any dirt and its hard to get off. You can get it in pink from the orange shop but apparently, orange have the exclusive...

Satisfactory

Small and great to look at

Unreliable not very good features

I wanted a smaller mobile phone than the old flip phone and the Samsung SGH-X830 sure fits the bill. My Mum bought me this phone for my birthday and she paid £130 for it, which I have to say considering the first one went wrong in the first 2 months was not very good value for money. It is a...

“Samsung SGH- X830”

appearance, storace space, swivel

button size, volume

The best thing about the Samsung SGH X830 is its appearance; unfortunately, the praise for this rather small phone ends there. The mp3 player is far to quiet as are the ringtones and the sounds provided with the phone clumsy and childish. The screen is far too small and narrow, even for those...

fiddly keys

The samsung sgh-x830 is a cool looking phone. Firstly its small...very small (approx half as narrow and a little shorter than my motorola v3x). Not for those whom misplace things on a regular basis. Becuase of its size obviously the screens are going to be small but this is to be expected and...

I think I'll start with the bottom line and work my way up; this phone is great if: A) You want to save money by not having your friends text off your phone because it's so bloody difficult with only two rows; B) You don't mind not being able to be one of those lovely people who insist on playing...

easy to scratch

I got a pink Samsung X830 for Christmas last year. I was really happy with is as it was what i had wanted. I opened the box and found, however, that there was a fault with it. The hold button on the side was permenantly held down, which meant i couldn't use most of the other buttons. I rang...

samsung are definitely capable of placing some extraordinary goods on the market, as they have proven again lately with the Samsung K5 MP3 player, fully operational by touch screen, and the Samsung i7 digital camera with its swivel screen. Also the announcements they made at the 3GSM in Barcelona caused a stir within the mobile telephone market. I have received a Samsung SGH-X830 sample for testing; a mobile phone aiming entirely at the MP3 player lovers! Extremely small, 1GB internal memory and a jog dial are just a few features on the Samsung X830. An additional and very special characteristic of the Samsung SGH-X830 is the arrangement of the buttons
