Are phones meant mostly for calling still available on the market? Indeed they are. For proof, you need look no further than the Samsung Entro. It’s a compact flip phone that’s being sold at a very affordable price point. It offers only the basics and lacks the many advanced features found in other models nowadays. So given its very limited feature-set, is it even worth considering?
The Entro is small. It measures a mere 7mm thick at its thinnest point. And it weighs only 100 grams. Due to its small size, it can only carry a 1,000mAh battery. This gives it up to 4 hours of continuous talk time per charge. That kind of battery life is particularly short especially for something that is pretty limited in its function.
In any case, the Entro is the kind of phone that you can easily carry with you wherever you go. This is because of the fact that it is small and lightweight. As mentioned in some reviews, it can prove a worthy companion especially in areas where there is good CDMA network coverage.
