Samsung SGH-T619 Review

In our opinion Т619 is a very elegant phone and, in spite of the budget materials it is made of, it looks classically stylish, rather than like a toy. Unlike Т609, its color is not shades of white, but it is made of a combination of dark grey and black plastic material. A small-size clamshell with in-built antenna and slightly beveled edges, instead of the egg-like shape that we are familiar with from previous Samsung models, which actually differentiates this model from previous models and makes it look more expensive. Its make is good and the phone is relatively solid, although some of you might not like the feel of plastic, creating a sensation of ‘cheapness’. The phone’s small size makes it easy to fit in a pocket and not feel it is there at all due to its weight of 2.8 oz (80 g). Although the phone is not equipped with an automatic opening mechanism, opening it is easy, thanks to the wound-up spring; closing it is easy, too, by resting the upper lid on big rubber buffers in the lower part of the phone.

Being a clamshell, this Samsung model is logically equipped with two displays: the main one, which is inside and an additional one on the outside. The latter display is capable of showing up to 65,000 different colors with a resolution of 96 x 96 pixels. However, its main purpose of use is to show system information like caller’s name/number, time/date and battery/signal level. It can be used as a camera self-shutter, as well as for visualization of the music player when the telephone is closed. Typically for a poor-quality display, its colors are not quire authentic but rather yellowish and it is difficult to read from it in bright light. What we found annoying is that the display goes off too soon and to light it up again you have to press the side sound button for a few seconds before it turns on again.

The main display is 2 inches long and has a resolution of 176х220 pixels. It is a TFT model and can show up to 262,000 colors. However, the quality of its images is not overwhelming: its brightness is limited, the colors are saturated and the white looks really white, but the visualized pictures do not look vivid, possibly due to the low resolution. However, the display does a good job, showing information, except in bright light when its surface becomes like a mirror and it is difficult to make out anything, unless you shadow the display.

The keyboard left us with mixed feelings: the keys are not small, they are easy to press and have a palpable feedback, but they are too close to one another and not much embossed, therefore it is difficult to feel the place of each key. Unless you look at the keys it is virtually impossible to feel their exact place and you would make many errors. The much-used software buttons are smaller and the 4-direction D-pad (with a central OK button) has very small keys which have to be pressed with a finger under an angle. The whole keyboard is lit in white, going paler towards the end buttons, and the two headphones are in green and red.


On the left there is a small sound control rocker, which is comparatively usable also during a conversation and on the right there is a shortcut to the camera, which is easy to find and easy to press. These side buttons are not lit up.
