Samsung I5510 Review
conversations with the people that were calling us sounded clear. However, the other party complained of not being able to hear us very well, since our voices came out muffled.
The phone sometimes had trouble locking the nearest cell tower, or dropped the signal in mid-call. When it behaved, though, we noticed that at places where we usually have very scarce coverage, the Samsung i5510 had full three or four bars, and we were able to carry a normal conversation.
There are no official endurance numbers for the 1200mAh battery, but in our unit it had to be charged every evening, and went down really fast with Wi-Fi turned on.
We were very pleased with the simplistic, unpretentious design of the compact QWERTY-laden Samsung i5510. Seeing Froyo and TouchWiz 3.0 perform in tandem for the first time out of the box, we are extremely optimistic about Android. The interface is snappy, smooth and functional, while the physical keyboard differentiates the Samsung i5510 from the existing Froyo pack.
If you prefer touchscreen only, have a look at the Galaxy 3, or, alternatively, if Android with a keyboard does it for you, the Motorola MILESTONE 2 hears your pain, but at a higher price. The rumored MSRP for the unlocked Samsung i5510 is the affordable 200 euros ($270), and it is ready to appear on Vodafone in a short while.
