Samsung Ch@t B3410W Review

Samsung Ch@t B3410W Review
This is a global GSM phone. It can be used with AT&T and T-Mobile USA.

Introduction:


Samsung is one of the companies with  really strong position in the affordable segment of the cell phone market. Following the rising demand for devices centered on text communication, the manufacturer has recently introduced the Samsung Ch@t B3410W. We cannot call it a brand new handset, since it’s a revamped version of the Samsung B3410 (also known as the Corby Plus) that has been available for some time now. The hardware specifications of both cell phones are almost identical, with but a few differences - the Samsung Ch@t B3410W comes with a built-in Wi-Fi module and newer version of the manufacturer’s proprietary TouchWiz interface.

Design:

Unlike the members of the Corby family, the Samsung Ch@t B3410W cannot be referred to as a device with youthful design. It looks austere and the only element that lands color to the buttoned-down design of the handset is its back panel. We do like the proper build quality of the cell phone and the plastic it’s made from does not feel cheap in your hand. There are no wobbly parts and the handset feels solid, not last due to its relatively hefty weight of 114gr.



You can compare the Samsung Ch@t B3410W with many other phones using our Size Visualization Tool.

Similarly to almost all other affordable models equipped with touch-sensitive screens, the 2.6-inch display of the Samsung Ch@t B3410W utilizes resistive technology and features low native resolution of 240x320 pixels. Its sensitivity is decent, but unfortunately, the image quality is far from awesome, with thin, unsaturated colors.


We do not have any gripes regarding the buttons on either side of the handset and we have to point out that we are pleasantly surprised by the presence of a dedicated button for quick access to the built-in voice recorder. We are somewhat disappointed at the manufacturer’s decision to equip the Samsung Ch@t B3410W with its proprietary port for charging/connecting (instead of a normal microUSB port) and the fact the microUSB expansion card slot is located under the battery.

The slider mechanism is quite tight, but that doesn’t mean opening/closing the full QWERTY keyboard involves extra effort or isn’t fast enough. The keyboard itself is, however, not one of the handiest we have used – its buttons are large, but feature limited travel and are just not raised enough, which makes them relatively hard to press. You will probably get used to them in time and will learn what to do in order not to make too many typing mistakes, but using the keyboard will not get enjoyable for sure.

I got a really nice Samsung 451c when I joined Net10. Not only is it really affordable but it is nice and easy to use. I find the sliding keyboard so appealing especially with Net10 providing text messages at only 5c. Affordable is great and being on Net10 has given me such freedom to use only what I need and when I need it. Prepaid all the way.
