Orange SPV M600 Review

MSMobileNews published an Orange SPV M600 review and the Mobile WiFi features are appreiated:

The M600 has an integrated WiFi adaptor like its bigger brother the M5000,this means that if you’re in range of a WiFi hotspot then you can surf the Internet for far cheaper and normally at far greater speed than would be the case were you using a GPRS connection. The WiFi in the M600 isn’t the strongest but is functional which is I guess a sign of the trade off between battery life and WiFi range, if WiFi killed the battery in 10 minutes then we’d all be very unhappy so the slight reduction in range is something that is happily given up in place of another, more important feature.

The Conclusion of this SPV M600 Review:

The Orange SPV M600 is a great trade off in terms of size versus function; with a feature packed list of specifications that actually delivers on most counts it will keep the vast majority of its customers more than happy. With WiFi, Bluetooth, a decent screen (bright and clear although not as high resolution as we’d have liked), a CPU that runs at a speed faster than you would expect and all of the usual features that you would expect from a Windows Mobile Pocket PC such as Internet browsing, audio and video playback, full POP and IMAP email support, and the ability to be able to install a huge range of third party applications, the M600 is a very powerful device that fits in the palm of your hand.

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.”

Nokia 6682 Reviews

Nokia 6682 cellphoneHere are some reviews of the Nokia 6682 1.2 megapixel camera phone with flash.

Nokia 6682 Reviews

Nokia 6682 receives 4 points (out of 5) in a cameraphone review from PC Magazine:

A smartphone with the accent on “phone,” the Nokia 6682 is a powerful, flexible device for people who want a phone that happens to do more than just make calls. The Nokia 6682 is the successor to the Nokia 6620 and the Nokia 7610, and it improves on both of them. Like the 6620 and 7610, it runs on the Symbian Series 60 operating system. Symbian Series 60, like Windows Mobile and Palm OS, has plenty of third-party software support; Symbian phones, however, typically focus more on phone functions than on messaging.

The bottom line of this Nokia 6682 review: “A powerful, flexible smartphone that never forgets it’s first and foremost a phone.”

Another good Nokia 6682 review comes from BargainPDA that states:

“After several weeks with the 6682 as my primary phone and sometimes PDA, I enjoy it. It’s small enough to be pocketable, but has enough functionality to let me put out fires when they occur. I don’t feel comfortable living on the 6682 as a PDA for an extended period of time, but that’s largely due to the input issues, lack of Exchange connection and a few software limitations. I feel like this device serves well as a notebook compliment, for someone who doesn’t really need the features of a full-fledged PDA, but needs more than what a typical mobile phone can deliver. ”

Phone Scoop also reviews the Nokia 6682 the and writes :

“Considering its great battery life, reception, camera and features, there are few for whom the 6682 would not be a great phone. Like all smartphones, the 6682 has a steeper learning curve than most feature phones. Nokia continues to make progress with Series 60 in an effort to make it the most user-friendly smartphone OS, and they continue to dominate the smartphone market thanks to these efforts. Once familiar with the 6682 and its OS, there are few needs it can’t safisfy.”
