Samsung Genoa C3510 Review

Samsung Genoa C3510 Review
This is a global GSM phone, it can be used with AT&T and T-Mobile.

How cheap can a cell phone equipped with touch-sensitive screen get?  As of lately, the answer is “quite a lot”. Touch screen handsets are all the rage and becoming more mainstream by the day, mainly due to affordable models like the Samsung Star S5230, Corby S3650, LG Cookie KP500 and Pop GD510. What we have in our hands today, however, is an even simpler cell phone, the Samsung Genoa C3510 (also known as the Corby Pop). This is a cheaper iteration of the Corby S3650 and it features almost identical hardware specifications, except for its downgraded camera.


Both devices look alike, although in the particular case of the Genoa C3510, you do not have the option to lend color to the overall design using replaceable panels, so as a whole, its outward appearance is more boring. Of course, this is our opinion and we all know that there is no accounting for taste, personally we just like the Corby better.



You can compare the Samsung Genoa C3510 with many other phones using our Size Visualization Tool.

The Samsung Genoa C3510 integrates a 2.8-inch touch-sensitive screen with QVGA resolution that utilizes capacitive technology.


The buttons on either side of the device have quite a strange, pointed shape that makes them really easy to feel with your fingers. It is great that the microSD slot is easily accessible. The top side hosts a 3.5mm headphone jack, but despite of its presence, the boxed pair of earphones is compatible with the manufacturer´s proprietary port.


The overall appearance of the Samsung Genoa C3510 cannot be called eye-riveting, although this doesn’t necessarily mean it will fail to find its followers. The build quality is quite good and the device doest feel cheap in your hand, which is a commendable achievement.

Is there a way we can suggest Samsung to add the music filtering options? I'm sure users will be glad to know if there will be a firmware update about that soon, including me :)

The Samsung c3510 has impressive specs. My phone has been in for repair and has come back with the same faults. After only a week or 2 it would switch of by itself, and you could not turn it back on. By leaving the battery out for half an hour and replacing it it might come back on. It specification says the stand by time is 720 hrs, I need to charge mine every 3 days (72 hrs) I might only have on short call in that time. I just want my money back because it is a lemon. I will definitely not be recommending a Samsung to any one (phone or camera)

I've had this phone for nearly a year now, and I am far from impressed with it. The main problem i've had is the "dictionary" in predictive text. Like most phones, you can add a word into the phone so that you can use it without having to retype. However, my model forgets all of these saved words at least once a day, leaving me frustrated and fed up. Its incorrect to say that this is a touch screen, as it is "heat sensitive" and so is useless if your hands are cold.
