Samsung Corby S3650 Review

Performance and Conclusion:

The in-call quality is slightly above average. We like the fact that the sound packs some punch and we were able to hear our callers even in noisy places, plus they didn’t seem to have any problems either. We were somewhat annoyed at the voice sharpness and the more or less surreal ring to them, but fortunately, they remained utterly intelligible.

The battery is truly robust, offers 9hrs of continuous talk time and keeps the handset operational for up to 15 days in standby, which is a whole lot better than what the arch-rival of the Corby, the LG Pop GD510 delivers.

It is truly hard to say which of the two models is better, the Samsung Corby S3650 or the LG Pop GD510. They are among the best handsets with affordable price-tags on the market today – the Corby is cheaper, comes with more capable browser and better audio playback quality. Its design is, however, more childish and the camera is worse. We like the overall look of the LG Pop GD510 better, but that doesn’t mean the Corby doesn’t have its own, unique charm.

If you are on the lookout for a handset for a kid or young person (or you are lucky enough to be one of them) and intend to use the device for talking, listening to music and (eventually) accessing social networks, the Samsung Corby S3650 is a great option. If you need more high-tech features like Wi-Fi and capable camera, consider the Samsung S5560 and LG GT505 that are also affordable.
