Samsung E1270 review

 Review: January 2015  

Rating: 3 stars

In a nutshell: The Samsung E1270 is a very cheap phone with a compact and practical clamshell design. It makes calls, sends texts and has an FM radio, but not much else - not even a camera.

Today's best buy: Samsung E1270 Sim Free Mobil ... from Amazon (£0)



This phone is a blast from the past. It's the kind of phone we were reviewing a decade ago. The only difference is that advances in technology have made this kind of product absurdly cheap. Samsung is practically giving them away, so if you're looking for a very simple phone to make calls and nothing else, or if you need a spare, this could be a good buy.

The backlight on my phone does not work properly.

Asked by Elisort from UK on 18th Mar 2016
I bought a Samsung E1270 because I wanted a simple phone just for calls. I really like this one, but have one big problem. The backlight does not work for the navigation keys, only for the numbers. Is this a problem just with my phone or with all E1270s?

The backlight is only for the numbers.

Just to add as I was curious I popped off the keypad to double check. Sure enough there are only four LED's set in between the numbers and none anywhere else.

hi my husband just purchased this phone. everything is quite straight forward and it's easy to use. only flaw is that he's having difficulty in deactivating the alarm. tried following the instructions but no success. very annoying as it's not as though we've not used a phone of this simplicity before. might be that we're doing something wrong. grateful for some advice.
