Samsung E840

Glossy, glassy, sophisticated the Samsung E840 is ‘a mirror you can make calls with’ as Samsung’s  quote.

At only 10.6 mm this is for the vain in everyone, now we need to look in to the mirror and ask mirror mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? Well fairest in the mobile industry.

Now its not just a pretty face it with a fantastic multimedia centre crammed in to the tiny frame, with a large bright screen which is perfect for playing videos and browsing the web. Other Multi Media applications include the FM Radio, a music library to store all your favourite tunes and a video recorder.

The handset has a pretty decent camera as well at 2 Mega Pixels with 4 X Digital Zoom and with great mode such as Mosaicshot, Multishot, Night mode, Selfshot & Viewfinder Mode you’re guaranteed to get the a great picture – only down point is there is no flash. All applications are easy to access with the touch screen on the front but it may take a bit of getting used to as they are not as responsive as regular buttons.

Other neat extras include a document viewer that lets you load up Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF files from your memory card to view them on the screen. The Memory card can hold up to 2GB which is great for working on the go, without a memory card there is only 70mb.

Downsides include no 3G ability and the battery life isn’t as good as other models with a stand by time of 360 hours compared to the Samsung Opus at 650 hours…

It’s a great looking handset and although the applications could be better, looks always come first!
