Samsung Monte Slider E2550 Review and Price Comparison

Category : Mobile Phones, Samsung

The Samsung Monte Slider E2550 is a sleekly designed slider type phone packed with communication and entertainment features. Part of the Samsung “Monte” family which includes phones such as the Samsung C3200 Monte Bar and the Samsung S5620. The Monte Slider E2550 features a music player, camera, internet browser, vibrant user interface and of course the elegant slide out keypad.

The front casing of the handset has the two inch TFT colour display screen (not touchscreen) with navigation control, call and selection keys located below this screen. The keypad slides out vertically but the handset can be used the slide in the closed position for the majority of the common features such as calls, phone book, messaging services etc. The E2550 Monte Slider has a black glossy coloured casing with stylish chrome contours giving a modern and classy look.

MP3 format ringing tones are supported and users can download additional tones to their phone using the wide range of connectivity options offered on the E2550. Fun and entertainment are supplied with music features, including built-in FM radio with RDS, internet browsing with social network integration, music player allowing playback and storage of MP3, WAV, WMA & eAAC+ files – with Digital Natural Sound Engine (DNSe), full gaming experience with preloaded and downloadable games on offer, and a rear facing camera (still photo and video).

The Samsung E2550 works is a dual band phone covering GSM 1800 and GSM 900. Battery life is good with a charge and realistically you will find a charge is only needed every few days (unlike some smartphones where charging seems to be a daily event like iPhone and Motorola Milestone.

Communication features are simple to access with messaging services being particularly good with T9 predict text feature which means users can quickly and easily create and share multimedia messages rather than making a call. Connectivity is good via both Bluetooth wireless connectivity and USB, and data can be stored using the 12Mb of on-board memory or the additional 8Gb via microSD slot.

Advantages: Good looks, nice sound from music player with the “Digital Natural Sound Engine feature”, packed with thoughtful features, very competitively priced, speaker phone with good volume .

Disadvantages: Camera only 1.2 megapixels (although photographs are reasonable quality and the included photo album application is great), No Wi-Fi, No 3G, only dual band so coverage abroad will vary.

In summary, a well designed slider handset with good features and classy looks in a compact (98.5mm x 48.5mm x 14.4 mm) package. Lack of 3G and WiFi are the only let down but at the current prices its hard to complain on T-mobile, o2, Orange and Vodafone.
