Sagem My X6-2 Review

Sagem My X6 2 cellphonePocket Lint reviews the Sagem My X6-2 mobile phone and writes:

Out of the box, the first thing you’ll notice is the large 2in 262k colour display that overshadows the rest of the phone. It’s bright, clear and happily lets you see the what’s going on at a glance.

The Sagem My X6-2 cellphone receives 7 points in this review:

“It would be fair to say that this phone is an under achiever, that will no doubt be the free contract offering from Vodafone and other operators from the start.

This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it’s just for us, the phone has no wow factor, no ooohh, no ahhhh, and certainly no excitement.

The trouble is. if you’re looking for a safe bet you aren’t going to opt for a phone that’s not a Nokia or an Ericsson and for that reason, that dominance of the big boys will just keep on carrying on. ”

Samsung SCH-i730 Review – Cnet Reviews

Samsung SCH i730CNET Reviews features a Samsung SCH-i730 review and writes :

The Samsung SCH-i730 for Verizon Wireless manages a pretty impressive feat: It shrinks a Windows Mobile-based smart phone into a form factor that actually fits comfortably in your pants pocket and includes broadband wireless, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a built-in keyboard, and a speedy processor. Despite some irritating quirks in its wireless support, the Samsung i730 stays in the running for the “Treo killer” title.

Appreciated features: Five-way wireless support (IrDA, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, CDMA 1xRTT, and EV-DO); speakerphone; comfortable slide-out QWERTY thumb keyboard; two batteries included; excellent third-party software support.

Samsung SCH-i730 smartphone receives 8.3 points (out of ten) in this review:

“Small, light, and powerful, the Samsung i730’s high-speed data support and built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi make it an excellent choice for those who have to stay connected at all times, though the crippled Bluetooth support may spoil the party for laptop road warriors.”

Orange SPV C550 Review – infoSync World

Orange SPV C550 smartphoneinfoSyncWorld has a Orange SPV C550 review and writes:

At 108 x 46 x 18 mm and 107 g, the Orange SPV C550 is nearly an exact match for its predecessor, the C500, with regard to size. A splash of silver paint and more symmetrical shape makes a world of difference. – but when it comes to attractiveness, first place goes to the 65K colour QVGA display of the handset. A first for Windows Mobile devices, it is a pleasure to behold in all of its crisp, 240 x 320 pixel glory, yet not the brightest and most high-res we’ve seen – an honour currently bestowed upon the Nokia N90 – but it’ll give most any smartphone a run for its money.

Appreciated features of the Orange SPV C550 smartphone: Sizzlingly sharp screen; good audio quality; long battery life.

“For music afficionados, the SPV C550 might be the best alternative yet – even better than the Sony Ericsson W800i due to its MP3 and WMA support, although it cannot match the battery life of the latter. The skew towards music is evident through the rejiggered keypad and the inclusion of over-the-air music downloads, but for those not bent on music these and other tweaks might prove more of an annoyance than a boon. Still, there’s lots to like about the C550, such as a brilliant screen, good audio quality and long battery life – but keep in mind it’s not top-of-the line in any area except for music.”
