The ultra thin but solid brushed metal bar which goes beyond looks and style

Samsung U800 Soul b is a nice try to diversify the supply in the Soul lineup. It has a sleek form factor and lacks any serious disadvantages if you don't count the somewhat slow interface response and the annoying battery release mechanism that seems to engage by itself once you set the handset on a hard surface. You should bear in mind that we are reviewing a beta unit here and those things might still be updated...

Samsung U800 Soul b is a nice try to diversify the supply in the Soul lineup. It has a sleek form factor and lacks any serious disadvantages if you don't count the somewhat slow interface response and the annoying battery release mechanism that seems to engage by itself once you set the handset on a hard surface. You should bear in mind that we are reviewing a beta unit here and those things might still be updated.

Leaving that aside, the Samsung U800 Soul b certainly manages to deliver on all fronts - it's got an excellent outfit, a really good 3 megapixel camera and plenty of storage space. Some might argue that it comes a little too late as the similarly equipped Nokia 6500 classic and Sony Ericsson W890 have been around for a while and their street prices are much more reasonable now. But given a right price tag, the Soul b will earn its place under the sun and in the hearts of style conscious fans. It's an excellent package and would surely liven up things in its segment.
