Samsung Lindy M5650 Review
The in-call quality is not a feature that makes the Samsung Lindy M5650 tower above mainstream devices, but is totally acceptable and we like the fact that the voices of our callers remained lively and totally intelligible even in relatively noisy environment. The major issue we encountered was the overly sharp sound that people on the other end complained about.

The battery is less robust than the one the Samsung Corby S3650 is equipped with. According to the manufacturer, it should provide up to 3hrs of continuous talk time and keep the phone operational for about 300hrs in standby, both on 3G networks. During our tests the Lindy managed to make it through almost two days on a single charge and during that time we used it for calls, surfing the Internet and quite intensely, for listening to music, so all told, the battery performs reasonably.

As a whole, the Samsung Lindy M5650 is a great handset with youthful design and quite an appealing option for kids and teens. Just like the Corby S3650, it comes with cool and fresh overall design, but adds 3G and Wi-Fi support that make the browser and social networking functions quite more usable. The major shortcoming of the device is its limited video capture and playback capabilities. Still, given a contract-free version of the handset are available for about $220, the mentioned drawbacks can be disregarded.

The Samsung Lindy M5650 will probably fail to become as popular as the famous Samsung Star S5230, Corby S3650 and LG Cookie KP500, but we would recommend it to anyone on the lookout for an affordable, music-oriented cell phone with youthful design.
