Samsung T336 review

5.7/10 AVG.

Informr score
The Samsung T336 currently has an Informr score of 5.7 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 2 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

Samsung squares the circle with the T336, a rectangular flip that stands out from other clamshell phones with the absence of curved edges.

The T336 is a Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) enabled phone, which allows the user to switch seamlessly to WiFi when available without the need for additional applications or a separate voice account, a huge feature for an otherwise entry-level phone and one that helps Rogers round out its UMA-enabled device selection. The T336 is part of the TALKSPOT family at Rogers.

Additional useful features include stereo Bluetooth, a 1.3MP camera, a color external display that shows the time, battery life, signal strength, etc., and a simple keypad that requires no learning curve.

Samsung sparkles when it comes to bringing special and exciting features even to its entry level line-up. The Samsung T336 is a clear example of this.

I have had this phone for almost 3 yrs, I never had a problem with it, I used to talk for hours on it, and the battery was very good, also I find it ok for texting I text about 600 a month, not bad for a 64 year old guy eh? I will use this phone untle it dies, wich I hope will not be anytime soon

Very Disappointed

bought this phone on Fido store employees recommendation & it seems like it was a last minute project by Samsung to have some 'pretty' phone on the market. Here are some of the issues i have seen: *menus do not make much sense *navigation control & selection buttons are hard to get accustomed to *phone is set up with buttons for Email & Internet & you cannot change them even though most people will not use these features on this phone *phone does not alert you when you miss a call, you have to open the phone to actually see the message *no easy way to turn external display on other than opening & closing phone, making it pointless *camera & video are poor quality *did not recognize uploaded mp3s to be used as ring tones *address book could not be exported via the software *SIM card is very hard to remove The only good things i can think of is that the phone looks nice & feels sturdy as it has a metal body. It does have some cool tools like the currency converter, world time, stop watch & WIFI. The sound quality & reception was also good. So unless you have patience of a Zen Buddhist, i would not recommend this phone. Less
