Samsung T245G review

Still got a thing for flip phones? You might like the Samsung T245G. It offers the typical flip phone form, nearly all of the basic cellphone features and an attractive price tag.

It has two screens, one inside and one outside the flippable lid. On the outside, it has a small secondary display that shows important information such as the date, time, battery charge left, and signal strength. The main screen is rather small but it’s backlit, colour and offers good contrast in most conditions.

It's also equipped with a basic camera for easy picture-taking when you’re on-the-go. It’s nothing spectacular, but it gets the job done. You can also share and transfer the pictures easily without wires by using the built-in Bluetooth feature. This is useful as the internal memory maxes out at 32MB.

With 5 hours of talk time on its standard battery, users are bound to get plenty of mobile use with the T245G. Though more powerful options are available on the market right now, those also cost more money. For its price, this flip phone from Samsung looks like an excellent deal.
