Samsung E250 review

 Review: June 2007  
 

Rating: 3 stars

In a nutshell: Compact slide phone with 0.3 megapixel camera, video camera, music player, FM radio, memory card & Bluetooth.

Best buy: Samsung E250 from Amazon Marketplace UK (£91.80)

 

The E250 is Samsung's first slide phone in the entry-level market, and it's an impressive one. This is a phone that retails for less than £50 on Pay as you Go, but it shares the cool looks and design of Samsung's top-end slide phones that are currently all the rage. It's a very compact, slimline and lightweight phone, weighing just 81g. The keypad and slide are very similar to the top-of-the-range Samsung D900, and are a proven design - very easy to use. When closed, the navigation keys enable you to access most of the phone's functions and you just slide the phone open to make a call or send a text.

For an entry-level phone it's very well specified too. The VGA camera (0.3 megapixels) and video recorder are fairly basic, but the phone is also equipped with a good quality MP3 player and FM radio too. In this price range, only the Sony Ericsson W200i can offer the same. The MP3 player can also handle AAC and AAC+ formats too. You can also set MP3 tracks as your ringtone. The built-in memory of 13 Mbytes is enough to store 3 or 4 songs only, but you can expand the memory with a MicroSD memory card if you want to make more use of the music player.

Other handy features include a built-in speakerphone and a voice memo recorder. All kinds of messaging are supported, including MMS (multimedia messaging) and email. You can download Java games as well as the embedded games that come pre-installed. A full range of personal organiser functions are included. Flight mode lets you listen to music, play games, etc whilst the network connection is switched off.

Connectivity is outstanding, with support for both Bluetooth and USB. The Bluetooth connection lets you exchange games and ringtones wirelessly with other compatible phones, and can also be used to connect to a stereo Bluetooth headset. The USB connection is most useful for transferring music, pictures and videos to and from a computer. A fast internet connection is available too, via GPRS and EDGE.

All things considered, this is an extremely good value phone. It offers the benefits of a music player and FM radio with a memory card, plus everything you'd expect from an entry-level phone, and in a cool slide design. Battery life is the one area that could be better. At the time of writing (June 2007) this is our favourite phone in the sub-£50 market.


Samsung E250 features include:

  • Digital camera (0.3 megabytes) with 4x digital zoom
  • Video camera
  • Display: TFT LCD, 65,536 colours, 128 x 160 pixels

I have to laugh at the complaints here.
1. Getting the back off to access the sim card and battery is easy. Read the book!.
2. It's a cell phone, people. If you want to take good pictures and videos, buy a camera.
It is an excellent product, and very easy to use, if (I repeat myself) YOU READ THE BOOK!

My PAYG phone does everything I could normally wish for, given that my needs are simple, plays music, radio, texts, makes calls..except the one reaosn I bght it..make calls from USA! I was sold it as quadband and in fact it is triband and my Orange network was useless. We were going to stay with friends, making our way from New York and I had to keep going to libraries to email them instead of being able to text. I would 100% recommend the phone otherwise!

I had this phone for over a year and it was fine up until the last few months I had it. The slide left an oil streak on the front where it slid down and the back was scratched when you slid it up. It didn't recognise my memory card and then I accidentally clicked 'yes' to format the card and it deleted everything, and after it was repaired the first time it did it again about 5 times. It came up with random files at times in the memory card during its dying out phase such as '2y' and '25?'. But other than those bleak times, it was a great value phone so I'd recommend it.

ive had it for a year, and now i when i switch it off, the screen goes white, like a really bright white, and it won't go back to black, so thats very annoying if i need to switch my phone off. And also this white light drained my whole battery, when i had switched it off after it was fully charged. Thats the only minus. Other than that, its a really good phone.

A good phone, all in all. The sound quality with speakers isn't great, and neither is the camera, but to hell with that, you buy iPods and camcorders for that sort of thing. The memory is not fantastic if you want to store lots of music - I originally ended up deleted lots of the games in order to be able to store more music - but get a memory card and you'll be fine. Also I've found that it is VERY strong. I've had it thrown across tennis courts, pavements - once it was even thrown into a lampost - but it's always been fine, there's barely a scratch on it! If all you want is a phone that does what a phone is supposed to do, for a good price and some nice added extras thrown in, (and if you feel the need to throw it across the pavement), then this is the phone for you.

I just bought this E250 for my husband, as he had a stroke a view years ago I give him my D600, he just loved it, but I want to get him a new phone and because he have trouble adjusting to phones I thought I get him the E250, as the only thing he want to do is phoning and receiving calls, and the E250 works the same as the D600. Got home with this phone, unpacked it, and tried to open the battery cover to put the battery and the sim in. I struggle for about an hour to open the back, whent back to the shop, but they were closed. So I start searching the web, afther another two to three hours a came across the reviews and start reading through it. From washing up gloves and everything else everybody recommended tried the selotape, but I did not do it right. I came accros another person recommended the selotape thing and whala it worked, you just have to pull very hard. I have had a view samsung cell phones, but no one is so hard to open. I just want to thank the sugestion of using selotape, and hope this is a good phone.

This phone is a good basic phone. My speaker went just before the year mark but Carphone fixed it no problem. No USB which is slightly annoying and the thing that covers the memory card slot (Micro SD) and headphone jack (NOT 3.5mm) is real flimsy - only a matter of time before it snaps. However, the FM radio is good, the camera is ok and it is just generally ok - nothing special,nothing terrible. It's Ok

Bit late I know for norma 8th Sept 2007 but after struggling myself for a number of days to get the back off an old E250 there's a simple way to do it. Press the "butt" of your hand against the back of the phone and just push forward. Easy Peasy now that my granddaughter has just showed me how to do it on her old E250. And Samsung phones look well engineered judging by that phone.

its simple to use but it isnt very good. the camera is rubbish and the phone easily scratches mine is covered in scratches. The back is also very difficult to take off and i am afraid it will break whenever i try to take it off. battery life is good as well

I have got this phone now and it is a good sturdy and practical phone. However, the memory is TERRIBLE! I can only store 1 song without a memory card. Also, the camera isn't great so I think it would be better suited to someone who is looking to buy their first mobile because it is easy to use and quite tough considering the fact that I have dropped it a million times and it has survived!

I bought this phone for my birthday, It was my first phone ever, and it turned out amazing. It is a very nice looking funny, and the features on it are brilliant. The games are fantastic: Pacman, Tetris, Zuma, and Brain Training. All of them are demos, but you can buy the proper game. The camera is good, not blurry, very good focus. Ringtones are amazing, Texting is very simple and easy, what more can i say? I love this phone! I will keep it until it breaks! and also, it is a very cheap phone. That may make it sound rubbish, ignore the bad reviews because the phone is perhaps the best phone you will ever come across. Thankyou!

it's inconvenient because the memory card slot is too narrow that you have a hard time inserting and removing it. also, it can't play downloaded videos around 4.4 MB. images moved to the memory card also become smaller, and when you use them as wallpapers, you get this two hideous gaps above and below the image. but other than that, it's okay. Anybody knows how my problems can be solved? please email me at this email ad: lefthandedsnake@yahoo.com

i have just brought this phone yesterday and i have a Micro SD memory card that i used in my old Nokia 7373 phone. When i put this card into my new Samsung phone it wouldnt pick it up. Although when i take the memory card out, it says 'Memory Card Removed' how can i make the card work?

i have had this phone for over a year now and i must say that it is an okay phone.. except for the fact that when either you ring someone or they ring you it is so loud that everyone can hear what the other person is saying. I am nearly deafened!!!

This phone is good. It gives you all the basics such as a camera mp3 plyer, video and bluetooth. The only thing that i am dissapointed about is that when i slide it, it has left a few marks up and down the phone. But i have used it alot so it probably has just started to wear away. Overall it is a good phone.
