Description

Samsung Seek M350 sports a quite similar design and features as Samsung Exclaim. By the looks of it, the Samsung Seek seeks to deliver some fresh looks through different colors and nice patterns on its back. In addition to keeping the QWERTY keyboard for those numerous texts, the Seek also retains the same modest screen size of 2.6 inches with QVGA resolution.

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
