Samsung S125G review



For people who want their phones to be just phones and nothing else, there are models like the Samsung S125G. It supports dual-band GSM networks, has a tiny color screen, and offers up to 6 hours of talk time per charge. It doesn’t have many other noteworthy features besides those.

It has a contact list that supports up to 200 entries and comes with a number of extra features which include a calendar, a world clock, a stop watch, a calculator, and even a currency converter. It also has a built-in loudspeaker that can be used during phone calls.

Put simply, the S125G is made to be used by those who need something strictly for communication. It’s a low-cost ticket to basic calling and texting capabilities on the go.
