Simple, basic and gets the job done. That’s what the Samsung SGH-T229 is in a word.
A familiar flip with a basic feature set, but it’s made by Samsung so don’t be fooled. This is a device designed for that still large swath of customers who remain undaunted by the latest in geek chic; they just want a simple, reliable way to make calls.
The lower end cell phone category is actually a very competitive place to be if you are a manufacturer, and some of you may end up deciding on a different model than this one, as it does lack a digital player and other features that have since trickled down to this popular tier.
But the call quality is good and the device is built solid, and clearly worth checking out if you are a nuts and bolts cell phone user.
The Samsung SGH-T229 has an 128 x 160 pixel display, so you won’t be playing DOOM 3 on this phone. On the bright side, for messaging it does offer MSN Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger along with ICQ and MMS.
You receive an entry level feature set that seems a bit thin but does include an alarm, calendar, vibrating alert, T9 option for faster texting, and a basic camera.
When reviewing phones in this entry level category it is very important to remember that for the targeted buyer, they don’t care about high end haptic interfaces or finger-flow touch OS’s. They just want a phone that works, free if possible, and more power to them.
For those folks, Samsung is always a brand to consider.
