With the release of the HTC Smart in India recently, the competition is heating up for low priced touchscreen phones and now Samsung has done its part to stir things up by releasing the Samsung Monte S5620 smart phone. With the recent release of many new Corby phones, Samsung‘s touchscreen presence in India is quite strong but the Corby family is sometimes considered more appropriate for teens or youths and the Samsung Monte S5620 mobile phone lends Samsung that slightly more somber touch that will appeal to adults in addition to providing a host of irresistible features.
At a price of Rs. 8850 or about 145 Euros or $198 for the Samsung Monte S5620 cellphone, one might not expect too many cutting edge features, but the Samsung Monte S5620 pleasantly surprises with a balanced mix of features that covers the needs of most users.
The technical details and specifications for the Samsung Monte S5620 smart phone include a 3″ WQVGA TFT capacitive touchscreen with a 240 x 400 pixels resolution, accelerometer, 200 MB internal memory, microSD for up to 8 GB of expandable memory but bundled with a 2 GB microSD card, microUSB, FM radio, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g), GPS, 3.15 MP camera with smile detection and geo-tagging, quad band GSM and HSPA class 3G access.
In our opinion though, the two phones are very evenly matched, both in terms of features and price although the Samsung Monte S5620 mobile phone is a touch cheaper and perhaps has better overall features. Users will most likely choose between the two based on their own likes and dislikes and more on the feel of the phones than any given feature.
