Samsung E1270 review
|Review: January 2015|
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.
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.
Samsung E1270 features include:
- Display: TFT, 65,000 colours, 160 x 128 pixels (1.77 inches)
- MIDI, MP3 ringtones
- Messaging: SMS
- FM radio
- Connectivity: 3.5mm headphone socket, micro USB
- Processor: 208 MHz
- Dual-band GSM (900/1800 MHz)
- Size: 95 x 46.5 x 17.95 mm
- Weight: 83g
- Battery: 800 mAh
- Talktime: up to 11 hours

The backlight on my phone does not work properly.

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?

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.
