Samsung SGH-T629 Review

Hold down the camera key (on the right side) for a couple of seconds and after four to five seconds the camera interface will be started. It is similar to those of other Samsung phones and is not very comfortable. The icons are small and hard to understand, while the options are in list menus. You can use a selection of color effects and frames to add to your images. The phone can capture video in low 176x144 pixels resolution that is worth using only for sending to another phone via multimedia message.

The camera quality is about the one we were expecting from it – a simple 1.3 mega pixel unit. The color representation is unrealistic; the images are sharpened and have enough detail for use on the Internet. Rarely, you can capture a decent image that's close to the real situation. Those are not shortcomings on this particular camera, but on all 1.3 mega pixel ones.

Audio:

The music player has interface similar to those of all other Samsung phones. You can change the visualization, having two options preloaded. Additional equalizers should change the way your music sounds, but if you have no stereo headset it is pointless. The music is played through the speakers situated on the back of the phone, and it is usable even at higher levels, sounding clean. Unfortunately it is not very powerful and even at level 10 of 10 you may miss an incoming call. The vibration is not any good and it's ridiculous that you cannot use them at the same time – the only option combining them is “Vibrate than ring”.

Software:

The phone comes preloaded with five games: Bobby Carrot (arcade game), AirShip Racing, Arch Angel (spaceship action), Freekick (soccer game) and demo of Midnight Pool (8-ball game). All of the applications load up fast, and if you get bored of them other Java MIDP2.0 games can be added.
