Samsung Genio Touch Review
The phone is stylish and visually pleasing with curved edges and back covers that are interchangeable, allowing users to change the cover to suit their style. There are three covers in the box. It is also small and lightweight.
The operating system is simple and easy to use and can be customised with different themes and comes with access to social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. However the phone is let down by a few things. The first is in messaging which only has an 'abc number pad' and no qwerty option. However those used to texting on a number pad will find this easy to use on the touchscreen. The 2 megapixel camera is also not the best of cameras, sometimes producing blurry or out of focus pictures. And the capacitive touchscreen seems to be at times not responsive enough or sometimes too responsive, taking a bit of time to get used to.
Overall the Samsung Genio Touch is a stylish mobile with social networking access, makes this phone a contender for those looking for a basic social networking touchscreen on a budget.
- Good Points: Stylish, budget
- Bad Points: Camera, touchscreen
- Others to consider: LG Pop
- Free on contract with: Most networks through Carphone Warehouse
