I bought the Samsung F210 about 2 years ago, and since then it has been in daily use.

First of all, probably the most important thing on a Mobile Phone is the battery life, and it is fantastic!

The battery is connected to the rear cover, so it is easy to take the battery out, as you just have to remove the cover and it comes out with it, however if the cover gets damaged, you can't just replace the cover, you'd have to replace the battery too... So that is a bit of draw back I guess.

But as for the battery life, it is fantastic, I usually have the phone in use for about 15 hours every day, and I only have to charge it up about once every week!

Alright, for about 14 of those 15 hours it is just sitting waiting for a call or text, but it still shows the battery is long living.

The screen is small, the same size as an average MP3 player's screen, but it is excellent quality.

The phone also has BlueTooth, which is great for transfering data from phone to phone - The BlueTooth in the Samsung F210 is very fast, and easy to use.

The camera is a 2.0 MegaPixel one, and has good zoom.

As with most modern Mobile Phones, it also takes videos with sound, and the videos are good quality also.

Another important thing for a video taking Mobile Phone, is the memory - And this one has a massive memory for pictures and videos.

I, personally must have about 2 hours worth of videos and 50 pictures, and there is still plenty memory left for more.

The sound quality for calls is good, however a little bit low if you are a bit deaf like myself! But it works fine, if you can hear properly, haha.

Texting is a little bit of a faf, due to the extra small keys, but I suppose I would rather have that than a big bulky Mobile Phone that I cannot fit in my pocket.

I paid around £150 for my Samsung F210, but seeing as they are not produced new these days, you could get a good used one for around £50-60.

I do plan on replacing the phone with a Blackberry some time in the future, but I will never sell my Samsung, as it is really a great overall Mobile Phone!

I hope you have enjoyed reading through this review, and although it probably isn't the best on this site, I hope it has helped you decide whether to buy a Samsung F210!
