Hands-on with the Samsung SGH-a657
It is a candy bar covered with rubbery texture that makes for a good grip. Even the dialing pad sports the same material that gives a uniform feel in the hand. Not surprisingly, the a657 does not have a camera, since it would've only hindered the toughness of the phone. The model is a quad-band GSM/EDGE, dual-bans 850/1900 HSDPA and supports microSD cards up to 8GB.
You can activate the flashlight by pressing the dedicated button on its right side in case of a powercuts and blackouts. Push-to-talk service can't be passed up on with a device like this, so you are able to keep in constant contact with others. There is just one imporant thing when it comes to deviced like this - the ability to withstand extreme conditions and still remain functional afterwards.
