Samsung Chat 335 Review
|| Review: February 2011
Last updated Sep 2012.
In a nutshell: The Samsung Ch@t
335 is a budget BlackBerry-beater. With a full QWERTY keyboard
and an optical trackpad, it's ideal for texting, emailing, facebooking
or tweeting. We love its superslim quality feel that fools people
into thinking you've bought a high-end handset. The phone comes
with Wi-Fi, an FM radio, music player and a 3.5mm headphone
jack. It can accept memory cards up to 8GB. The camera may be
little more than a toy, but everything else about the S3350
Chat shouts quality. Available in Black, Pink or White.
Best buy: On Pay as you Go for £39.89 from Dialaphone
Move over BlackBerry, Samsung is here! The Samsung Ch@t 335 (or Samsung
Chat if you prefer, since the web isn't very good at @ characters) looks
like a BlackBerry, smells like a BlackBerry and does very much what
a BlackBerry does. Yet it retails for less than half the cost of the
BlackBerry Curve. Is this for
We gave Samsung's first attempt at a budget BlackBerry, the Genio Qwerty,
a bit of a thumbs down. But the Ch@t is something altogether different.
Although it retails as a budget pay as you go phone, Samsung have styled
it as if it really were the BlackBerry-beater it yearns to be. It's
pretty much the same size as the BlackBerry 8520, but noticeably slimmer,
being ultraslim at just 11.9mm. Yet it doesn't feel like it's about
to snap in half. It has a metal finish and a quality feel about it.
The QWERTY keyboard has been completely re-engineered and is much easier
to use. The keys aren't huge, especially the space bar, but they're
as big as they can be in a phone this size and they respond nicely to
the touch. You can program shortcuts into the QWERTY keyboard for fast
access to favourite apps.
The display is completely standard for this kind of phone: 2.4 inches,
320 x 240 pixels, LCD. It's the "correct" display for the
phone. Between the display and the keyboard sits the optical trackpad,
which differentiates between normal finger movement and fast swipes,
helping you to move around the screen and scroll up and down easily.
We have to say that QWERTY keyboard + trackpad + slim design = superb
So, we've got a great keyboard, let's start typing. The Ch@t is great
for texts, emails and instant messaging, and equally handy if you like
to tweet or catch up on facebook. The Chat may not be a 3G phone, but
it's about the only sub-£50 phone that comes with Wi-Fi, so it's
pretty nippy getting on to the net. As well as Wi-Fi, there's Bluetooth
and USB connectivity too.
The Ch@t is no smartphone, but there are a few apps you can install
and it comes with 5 embedded Java games. You won't get bored on the
bus either, because it has a music player and an FM radio, with the
ability to record songs from the radio. The 3.5mm audio connector lets
you plug in any standard-fit headphones for the best audio quality.
Like most other phones in this price range, the camera is very limited,
being just 2 megapixels and with no autofocus or flash. It can record
video, if you really push it, but don't expect much from it. It's fair
to say that imaging is not the Chat's strong point, but then most other
entry-level phones are no better.
The memory of the phone isn't huge, but is adequate for the job at
60MB. If you're going to use the Ch@t as your music player, you'll want
to buy a microSD memory card, and the Ch@t can take cards up to 8GB.
The battery isn't very high powered, but the phone manages to eke out
enough juice to last a couple of days between charges, even if you use
it quite heavily.
We've been quite charmed by the Ch@t 335, despite its silly n@me. It
sets out to deliver the power of a BlackBerry for half the money, and
we think it succeeds. Corners have been cut in certain places, but not
in core functionality, nor in build quality or aesthetics. As a result,
we really can't find fault with this phone.You might also like to consider
the Nokia Asha 302, Orange
Rio II or BlackBerry Curve 9300.

- 2 megapixel camera with 2x digital zoom

This phone is fantastic! It has the qwerty key board and optical track

is slimmer than the blackberry and cheaper. I have the sim free one
which is great to try out different networks. The FM radio is good for
recording songs and the phone has a good battery life. This is the best
phone I've ever had. I would recommend this phone to everyone!

I do not have any major dislikes when it comes to this phone, and do
think that it is worth the money, however there are somethings about
the phone that I think could be better. I find the phone quite hard
to text on because the keypad is quite small, I also feel like when
Im texting I am going to break the keys (especially when Im texting
fast) and this is a little frustrating because I text alot. Normally
when I get a new phone it does not take me that long to learn the new
keypad, however it is taking me a long time get used to this keypad
because it is quite small and I find myself constantly looking for the
letters so I dont end up pressing the wrong button. Some keys are a
little slow and need pressing down harder in order for the letter to
appear and when I want to make a letter capital the button you press
to change this is a little slow and I find that when I read back through
the texts the words that needed a capital infact dont have a capital
because I have typed the text fast and the button has not worked fast
enough. This is all the fault that I have found with this phone so far,
and Im sure my issue with the keypad will get better, as I am still
adjusting from my previous phone. Hope this was helpful for people.

I have owned the blackberry curve and it is NOT worth the money at all!
My mum bought me this phone in february and when i saw it on the box
i was a bit sceptical because the last thing i needed was another blackberry
senario but when i opened it up i was plesantly suprised! I have the
pink version (but it is more of a rose-red than pink!)and it looks and
feels fab, it has grip on the back of the phone which is v.good. I have
two faults with the phone and they are the fact that the internet is
much slower and you have to have the large date & time on the homescreen
that effects your wallpaper. I definatley recommend this phone its FAB!

After numerous Blackberries that freeze, crash and cost a bomb, have
gone for this cheaper option and Samsung was always my favourite make
before. Loved my BB but cannot afford to replace again after my 3 yo
'giving it a cup of tea'. This is pretty good for the price and 'feels'
better than the BB Curve. I will get used to the lack of apps as i didnt
really use them much except fb and twitter and i have them here. And
with wifi its plenty fast enough. If it had some more themes i would
be very happy as opposed to happy. Excellent for the price. Recommended.

This phone is shockingly bad. I only bought it because it was a cheap
contract and bitterly regret not getting a more expensive contract which
would give me a better phone.
If you literally do nothing with your phone apart from phone people
and text then go for it but if you do anything else buy something different,
even for taking photos the camera is slow and only 2mp which these days
is pretty poor. If you plan to go online with your phone just avoid
this phone, save yourself the hassle and pay a little extra if needed.
I have a lot of samsung products including my last phone, a samsung
tocca lite which was brilliant. This phone has made me rethink if I
would buy another samsung phone.
Very, very poor....

I got this phone april 1st 2011 and so far it has been back to the shop
5 times all for the same reason. Firstly i like to say its a lovely
phone, does what it should do. Buttons can get stuck so can be a pain
when texting, can not connect to the internet, I love the fact you can
record the radio. The lock button on the left doesnt work but the main
problem is the track pad is broke according to phone 4u who I brought
it from. It has been sent of 4 times to get this fix, they say 3 and
once rebooted in the shop and now it broke again. Im hoping for a new
one now as when I go to send a text it freezers and I have to switch
the phone off. not a great phone.

I agree with Steve! You are being unrealistic! They can't make the keys
bigger without ruining the great, practical, slim size of the phone.
However I do agree that the camera is SHOCKING! I've had my phone for

I got the phone for Christmas. Except unbelievable built quality from
an ease of use point of view it is a disappointment. I was happy to
have a phone that I can access several email adresses although there
is no direct access to GMail as in a Nokia although the seller promised
this to my wife. When opening the Email inbox it is impossible to receive
instantly your emails and -wait for this- you have to delete all emails
first because of "maximum number of entries reached" every time and
then reload the whole email list including the new ones. When the new
ones are there you still have to "retrieve" each and every email contents.
Bluetooth for in car usage works well although the Samsung asks you
each and every time to connect or not and there is no possibility to
recognise your car once and for all and connect automatically. If you
get in and out of the car often this is annoying. Internet is hopeless
and keylock comes too fast. Bottomline is if you want a good looking
and well built phone for chat and calls it is perfect but don't use
it for anything else. Regards.

Me and my friend Emily had a competition - she bought a Blackberry and
I bought a Samsung Ch@t on the same day, and we both use our phones
approximately the same amount, for the same things, and are both fairly
careful. Since October when we got the phones, Emily's Blackberry Bold
has been in for repairs for a total of 2 months, and has had a lot of
electrical faults, whereas nothing has gone wrong at all with the Samsung.
It is perfect, and it can do pretty much everything that a Blackberry
can, except maybe the camera isn't great, but for under £50, you wouldn't
expect it to be. It is the ideal budget phone and I have lost count
of the number of times it has been called a Blackberry by my friends.

think your "unable to send multimedia messages" problem was explained
to us at the shop. On contract free minutes cover the basic texts and
calls - not picture messages or calls to/from abroad. We were advised
to put a 'pay as you go top up' of say £10 on the phone that would sit
in the background but would be there to pay for multimedia messages
or international calls.

I've had this phone, since this morning. I got it at carphone warehouse
on an upgrade, for £50. I thought at the time, for £50, it's nothing
special. Well, as usual, I was wrong. This phone is a really unique,
nice, slim, realiable phone to use. People say, "Blackberry's are way
better." THATS BECAUSE YOU SPEND LOADS OF UNNESACERY MONEY ON IT. I
recommend this phone to anyone. If your in doubt to buy it, I say HELL
YEAH. The wifi's really nice as well, I can use google, facebook (via
wifi, not the social networking app), youtube, EVEYTHING, all for free
on the wifi. The only thing that stumped me, was that it doesn't come
with a USB lead, So I can't transfer music. But apart from that, it's
great, and you can also put memory cards in, the MicroSD ones to be
precised. Not all the photo's worked, (as i transfered them onto my
phone, from my memory card) but thats not something I'm going to loose
sleep over. Have fun with this phone,it's the best that money can buy.

Phone is good BUT its software (Operating System) is pathetic to say
the least. May be I am spoiled after using Android and iOS (iPhone).
Its not intuitive and not convenient. It CANNOT beat Blackberry. You
would not like to use it for regular emailing using its native browser.
I am regretting buying it. No problem with Phone hardware... its the
software which has killed the phone. NOT recommended.

I've had this phone since December and i'm completely pleased with its

I bought this yesterday as a cheap back-up phone, it's more on the looks
that it takes its edge over the other cheap QWERTY phones like Nokia
C3. But in terms of functionality, it's more on the basic side, but
that's what you get with a cheap feature phone. I tried to install Facebook
for every phone which is java based, but it failed to launch the app,
it reboots every time I tried to open the app. The keypad is quite on
the difficult side to use, aside from being too small, flat and crowded,
it's also quite hard to press, as I see it's made out of a rubbery plastic
material. The built-in social networking apps, such as twitter and facebook,
are quite annoying to use, something you wouldn't like and get used
to when you have experienced using the same apps in a full pledged smartphone.
Overall, I'd give it a 4 on the somewhat "svelte" looks, but average
(2) on the functionality. So that's 3.

Charles, this is normal. It just indicates that your network supports
EDGE data transfer, which is faster than GPRS. Having an E on your screen
shows that you have a strong signal!

Bought this phone on Tesco mobile 24 month contract as it was an amazing

constantly hitting wrong keys. Also the little button is too sensitive.
Good signal. Bit too wide to hold it in one hand to text. Can't cope
any longer with the texting and have sent it back. Going for the phone
I've always wanted now - Iphone.

From the outside this phone seems good, bought on contract but now i

Track pad scroll, Ease of use, Capability for Apps, Excellent Design.
The Bad: Signal poor on Tesco/O2, Occasional Freezing, Poor camera/video
pathetic, Takes minutes at times to load browser,Does not support many
apps,Slow, No service/network error/connection to server ended errors,
WiFi works but connection options not straightforward for apps in use.
I went back to my faithful Nokia N95, even my old Blackberry 8320 is
superior for a old banger.In fact i would go as far to say that most
Chinese dual sim mobiles are superior and cost less which is sad. I've
unlocked mine and will sell the disappointing phone and go back to a
modern Nokia or Blackberry. Samsung have failed even with this budget
mobile when compared to even cheaper mobiles on the market. Best if
you only text and talk to yourself and want a cosmetically good looking

i got it i realised that i can only go on the internet at home as no
other wifi hotspots work. Also in order to have this i was told to downgrade
from my iphone contract and then pay more on a contract for this phone!
When i do get on intenet it says not enough memory. Facebook will not
let me update anything just read. Twitter wont even work. Voicemail
is always unavailable and i cant even send picture messages. Will never
