While it does share a clear Samsung lineage, I am disappointed that they released such an iphone-resembling device. Also, some folks prefer feature phones for their simplicity and/or cannot afford the requisite data plan, so the second paragraph comes across as narrow-minded and short-sighted. You also listed lack of WiFi a con: what feature phone comes with WiFi? In the U.S. market I am not aware of any.

Samsung Champ series always has been phones with no actual game-plan i would say... It looks cute, that's all i can say. It may be cheap, but it's better to get a phone with a keypad instead of this one!

not everyone wants a smartphone not everyone can afford a smartphone not everyone lives in the USA some people want to have the basic phone functions why can't you folks understand that besides there's a galaxy S3 and note 2 for high end there's a market for feature phones in developing countries and Samsung wants everything covered

Features phones are made to look bad just to boost the smartphone sales, when i wanted to update from my samsung jet, my only requirement was a larger screen size with the same resolution and i found choices only in android and windows 7.5 devices.

No they expect a Samsung Exynos 1.4 GHZ Quad core processor and a 480X800 3.2 inch screen..

The cons they have listed are irritating. Feature phone means no apps...duh! Resistive touch screen is a pain...true, but it also has it's positive quirks, like anything can be used as a stylus. No WiFi...It's a feature phone, they never have had wifi, never will. These aren't cons, it's just a different market. It's like buying a base model car, and then complaining it doesn't have 400hp, or a premium navigation system.

The back button is the big black button and champ deluxe can play QVGA video (384kbps-18fps, 128kb-441khz). Feature phone mean it can run java apps and don't tell me you can't find java app. This phone released almost a year and the review comeout when it birthday is near.

Atleast strike a balance when making feature and smartphones!! Make both classes of phones good, or QUIT MAKING FEATUREPHONES! Samsung, your feature phones are truly disappointing. Here's what i would do to make this 4/10 rated feature phone better- -Put in a 3.2 inch screen with 480x320 resolution, instead of a 2.8 inch screen with 240x320 resolution. Replace the resisitive touch screen with a capacitive one (GEEZ Sammy! what were u thinking?! Resisitive touch screen? That is OBSOLETE nowadays!) Put in a 3.2/5 megapixel camera with auto focus and flash. (1.3 MP camera? FACEPALM) Lastly, Put in some other youthful colours!! Target this phone towards tweens, (12-14 years old) And not the good old black. Take a look at your corby and learn, samsung. This is what i would do to this phone... if i'm a sammy phone designer.
