Samsung E330 review

 Review: February 2005  
 

Rating: 2 stars

In a nutshell: A mid-range dual-display clamshell camera phone from Samsung.



 

Review

The Samsung E330 is a dual-display clamshell phone that looks similar to most Samsung clamshells except that it has an internal aerial. It's a nice phone to look at and has all the features that you'd expect from a mid-range camera phone: a medium-sized display with 65,000 colours, a standard VGA camera, Java games, a quite generous amount of memory, and dual band. Just two things distinguish the E330 - firstly the addition of a voice recorder, which can be used to record ringtones, and secondly the benefit of a handsfree speaker.

It's hard to avoid the word "average" when describing the E330. Unkinder reviewers might use the word "boring", however Samsung have made a neat phone that has most of the functionality most people will need, and phone manufacturers shouldn't be criticised for that!

I have had this phone for five years now and have never had any sort of problem with it, despite some fairly rough treatment (such as being dropped from great heights, and recieving the occasional drenching.) Very resilient and very reliable, from my experience I really would recommend. Having said this, the battery life is a little short.

I used to have this phone; mind you it was a long time ago. I loved the design, and in its day, it was the best phone around. I miss it so much. At the moment I have the D500 which is by far superior. But I must say - There are some days that I miss this phone so much I think about going back to it! *It should be updated* 2.5 MEG/CAMERA + Video MMS, this would be a huge sale!! P.s...There are somethings this phone did that my newer Samsung doesn't - And they were good!!

I don't think this phone is very good at all. There is no bluetooth, no music player, no video, the camera is not very good and I am unable to send an MMS. I have recently bought a new phone, and I use the same SIM card in it, and I am able to send multimedia messages from that, so it is definitely not the SIM card.

I had this phone for a few months and i hated it! you can't use your recordings for ringtones and sometimes it doesnt switch your ringtone when you actually do! also, when you put it in your pocket, it always takes picures due to the camera button on the side! supposedly you can turn off the button but ive never figured out how! only good thing for me was the size and shape...

THis is an okay phone. The thing that sucks about it is that there is no video recordings. I like the phone but its the 2007 and there are far many more much better phones than this one. I would advice one to buy it. But if you are looking for more extrvigant phones i would advice you not to buy it.

I have had MANY phones and would not call this one impressive - cause it is not. But it gets the job done. My old phone broke and I just needed a new one fast - now I'v had it for a year - and is still happy with it. It works! So if you need a cheap phone with basic (but good) functionalities - this is the one. Only real downside is the calender. It is too basic.

Well, where do i start? hmmm? i've had this phone for just under a year now and thesse are the things i've found!...the picture is good and the camera is good. the shape is really nice and its good not to have an arial stickin out of the top. the games are ok but theres not many of them and theres plenty of memory. however, there is no video :( and the sound you record on the voice recorder can't be transferred to be used as ringtones and the message alerts are standard and you cant use your own as you can with ringtones. the sound quality is good but unfortunately there are only plyphonic ringtones not real tones:(another thing is than the outside camera takes photos in your pocket or bag. i think this is more of a ladies phone as it is quite stylish and elegant, but it is not good for anyone who uses their phone alot or wants a really good phone with lots of features. the features that are on there are ok, but there needs to be more of them!P.S. the keys are really nice to text with and the keys make a kwl drum noise when u dial a number!

My wife has had her E33o for 2 months and is going to buy a new Nokia this weekend. The menu system is totally illogical and the initial grid menu is so faint as to be hard to see. After 2 months of sliding it into & out from her pocket the back is very scratched, and she is always careful not to put anything else in that pocket. What she finds worst is that if she is composing a text and accidentally cancels half way through, the text is lost. It always stays on Nokias until you deliberately clear it. All in all, she is so disapointed that she is going ot buy a much cheaper Nokia.

I upgraded from the Nokia 6100 because I wanted a camera & the screen looked clear & bright. Unfortunately I found the phone to be rubbish! Yes it does the basics well, but the battery life is very poor! 2 days on standby, but if you actually use it for making a call or playing a game you need to charge it daily! The Silver paint on the outside has started to rub off making it look very cheap and finally, Samsung placed a handy button on the side for activating the camera..WHY? All that happens is you end up taking loads photos of the inside of you pocket! My advice - avoid the E330; if you want a decent Samsung phone go for a higher spec one.

Took a liking it too it after my other one got nicked. There's not enough characters on the texts, so if you've got alot to say in a message its not worth getting because you end up sending 2,3 maybe 4 messages at any one time. But I'll give it it's due, the camera on it I must admit is quite good, you can get a very clear picture on it most the time. You dont always know if you have a message if you have it on silent as the vibrate on it isn't very loud or noticeable. Id recommend this to anyone who doesnt' like texting much as it will cost you a fortune in texts let alone anything else and the battery on it doesn't always last very long.

Small, stylish and slight. Not overloaded with features but what it does, it does well. It may help those owners who are experiencing short battery life to follow the manufacturers instructions - for the first 3 charges keep the phone on charge for 12-16 hours. This builds up battery memory and you should get 4/5 days out of it.

Who buys a phone without checking the features first? If you want a good basic phone this is great. It would be good to be able to change the defaults a bit more. I would like to be able to turn off the T9 mode, but I am getting used to using it rather than changing it every time I text. You have to press and hold the camera button for a long time to take a photo, so it doesn't take photos by accident. It is small, looks good, does what I need and it didn't cost a fortune.

I have recently upgraded from a Nokia 3310 (yes i know it's old!), and compared to that this phone is amazing!! But the menus are a little harder to navigate but all you need to do is get used to it. The photo quality is good and the ringtones are ok. All in all a good phone!

this phone is alright, i don't like the camera though, the layouts not very good either, and if your phone is in your bag, you are forever taking black plain pictures of evrything as there is a little camera button on the side of the phone which comes on with the littlest touch, go and buy the samsung D500 honestly it is great! built in mp3, video recorder, 1.3 mp camera, great memory, better than this one.

I got my phone about a month ago and I love it!!! Small and compact, definitely a bit of a girls phone, but then again, I am a girl, so thats fine and dandy by me. This is my first camera phone and I think the quality is pretty good - far better than my boyfriends siemens MC60. There are some funky ring tones and wallpaper, good screen size and resolution. It's user friendly, this is my first samsung but I'm finding it straight forward to use. My only itsy, bitsy complaint would be that it doesn't vibrate at the same time as ringing. However the ringtones are definitely louder than my old sony ericsson so I can actaully hear it ringing (always a bonus with a mobile phone!) So if you want a decent, not too flashy and techy phone, get this one!!!!

Have had this phone for a week now, and am quite pleased with it. Having previously had a Siemens camera phone i am amazed at the picture quality on this phone. the only features i think let this phone down are the VERY poor battery life (2-3 days with little use), and that the exteranl display doesn't show anything when in screensaver mode; you have to open up the phone, activating the main screen and keys (using up much needed battery!) everytime you want to check for any messages or missed calls. i noticed a couple of other reviewers said you couldn't send messages to multiple numbers- but you can! overall- a very stylish looking phone, great camera and easy to use at a very reasonable price.

The Samsung E330 looks very nice and has a bright clear screen, however it has 3 major problems. 1. Compared with Nokia or Sony Erricson phones the battery life is very poor (2 days per charge). 2. Compared with Nokia it is very user unfriendly for text messaging! 3. Worst of all it has a button on the side for taking photos. There is no way to turn this button off, and every day I end up taking 15-20 black photos of the inside of my pocket. All I can say is I can not wait to get the Nokia 6230 I have ordered as a replacement.

I used to have a samusung C100, but i wanted a camera phone. so i got this 1! the only problem is, (the reason why i gave it 4 stars not 5) is that it doesn't have video. it has voice video (or wotever u call it!) but no video. :( i realy wanted video, but other than that, its gr8!!! xXxbuhbyezxXx

I am confused. I ike this phone, but is the external screen supposed to be black? there is nothing on it unless I open the cover or somebody rings. What is a point of an external screen then?

I bought this phone shortly after christmas mainly because it loooked good and was advertised as having loads of cool features. I was very dissappointed. The battery only lasted about two days and i hardly used it. The camera woz ok but not clear in bright light and the ringtones were awful. I bought this becasue it woz a camera phone but after a week i took it back and got a nokia 3100 which i love. Its much easier to use and the battery lasts for ages. Dont buy this phone unless you want a cheap camera phone that looks good but dosent hav much else and if u are prepared to charge it up everyday!
