Samsung Monte S5620 Preview
posted by PhoneArena Team / Feb 09, 2010, 1:13 AM
This is a global GSM phone, it can be used with AT&T and T-Mobile, but without 3G.
Introduction and Design:
Observing the evolution of the so-called mainstream class of devices is quite an interesting thing to do. About a year ago, just a few of them offered 3G or decent camera, let alone Wi-Fi - features that are currently considered pretty typical. You can find virtual gemstones in today´s golden medium class of cell phones, coming with a great number of features at affordable prices and the Samsung Monte S5620 looks like one of them, because it delivers quite a few connectivity options, 3-inch capacitive screen with WQVGA resolution, 3.2-megapixel camera, GPS and the latest version of the TouchWiz interface for feature phones.
We have to admit that the guys over at Samsung are grandmasters of the eye-reverting design - even a pretty ordinary, plastic model like the Monte grips your attention with its interesting color solution and catchy appearance. For some unfathomable reason, it does remind us of Bumblebee, the auto-bot from Transformers.
You can compare the Samsung Monte S5620 with many other phones using our Size Visualization Tool.
We do like the high display sensitivity – the phone registers even the slightest touch and the screen keyboard feels really comfortable to use. The Samsung Monte S5620 is equipped with 3.5mm headphone jack and microUSB port, both located on the top side. The back features a pleasing rugged pattern that prevents the device from accidentally slipping out of your hand.
As a whole, we do like the Samsung Monte S5620. It comes with an overall design that inherited elements typical of the Shark series and all told, we believe the device will appeal to a wide audience.

Samsung Lindy and Monte has only slight difference . The data speed via 3G is higher in lindy than monte. Lindy has dedicated keys for music, but i heard that keys are working only if you r in main screen(not sure about this). Touch in monte will be very good when compared to lindy and monte is less weight than lindy with wide screen. Monte has more widgets for applications(i guess).
