The "1-Minute" Review

The Samsung S275 is a basic flip phone complete with two small screens and a 1.3 megapixel camera. While it doesn’t offer much in the way of screen quality or memory, it does offer wireless Bluetooth connectivity and 7.2Mbps internet connectivity. According to Samsung, the phone boasts a “simple to use yet stylish design” and also weighs a mere 81 grams (2.86 oz).

In this day and age of the smartphone, experts agree this phone won’t wow any consumers. That being said, Techworld24 notes that it has a market amongst consumers looking for a simple and cheap phone for basic talk and text. Other critics like Softpedia believe the phone is obsolete and does not have specs impressive enough to warrant the cost.

The Good: Bluetooth and internet connectivity, basic phone for non-smartphone users.

The Bad: Unimpressive specs, keypad for texting.
