Samsung SGH-G600 Review


As phones nowadays have turned into multimedia devices, a class of dedicated cameraphones has appeared and the manufacturers are trying to offer the best possible digital camera packed into a phone that doesn’t lack other functionality the customers would request.

A year ago, we published our first comparison of the cameraphones that were the best on the market, at that time. 3-megapixel was the top resolution in GSM phone for the European market and auto-focus wasn’t available in all of the tested phones. At that time, Sony Ericsson K800 and Samsung D900 performed the best, sharing the first place.

Today we are reviewing the new generation Samsung slider, targeted as dedicated cameraphone – the G600 has similar dimensions to its predecessor (the D900) but packs 2 additional megapixels of resolution. The software also changed, and the new slider will offer you improved camera interface with horizontal orientation and newer generation software. The G600 is not an Ultra Series device due to its thickness of almost 15mm (0.6”) and the slim slider that replaces the D900 in this aspect is the U600, which is equipped with 3-megapixel camera.

Not targeted as a luxurious device, the G600 comes in pretty plain box. In addition to the standard charger, USB cable and various manuals and CD with synchronization software, you will also find stereo headset in two parts (adapter and 3.5mm noise isolating headphones), microSD card with adapter to full SD (in our case it was 1GB) and a small Bluetooth headset (Samsung WEP210) with adapter for charging.

As you see, the sales package contains almost everything you may need. The only thing that some may require is a small carrying case, but it seems that the slider is designed to be worn directly in the pocket.
