Samsung SGH-i200 Smartphone



Key Features

  • Review Price: £182.99

Lately, Samsung has been pushing hard to make a name for itself when it comes to smartphones. We’ve had big launches like the Omnia i900, but the SGH-i200 has been squeezed out with less fan fare. This is probably due to the fact that the handset is aimed more at business users than trendy young things.

The SGH-i200’s main claim to fame is that it’s the thinnest smartphone on the market. Or at least it is according to Samsung. In reality it’s not much slimmer than other skinny models we’ve seen like the Motorola Q 9h. Nevertheless, for a business device it scores unusually high in the looks department. Not only is it superbly slinky measuring just 11.8mm at its thickest point, but it comes suited and booted in an appealing glossy piano black finish.

The front of the handset is naturally dominated by its 2.3in screen. This has a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels and is not only bright, but also produces rich and vivid colours. However, it’s framed by quite a large blank border area which means that Samsung could have been a bit more generous with the screen size. Nevertheless, the display does have a neat extra feature: a built-in light sensor means that the screen is automatically dimmed in lower light conditions to help eek out a bit more life from the battery.

When it comes to controls, the i200 has a fairly run of the mill line-up of buttons. Beneath the screen there’s a metal wheel that looks and feels like it should act like the scroll wheel found on other phones such as Samsung’s own older i300 device but unfortunately it turns out to be a bog standard four-way D-pad with a selector button in the middle. These are joined by a volume rocker switch on the left-hand-side and a dedicated camera button on the right.

The keypad is a standard numerical affair rather than a QWERTY one, but at least the buttons are large and responsive and you do get decent sized home and back keys as well as two dedicated soft keys along with call setup and hang-up buttons
