The Good Unusual design; good headphones; lots of onboard memory.
The Bad Tiny screen; fiddly controls.
The Bottom Line They say that sometimes you have to suffer for fashion, but in the case of the Samsung F210, we'd rather not. The small screen and fiddly controls mean it would be towards the bottom of our list if we were on the look out for a fashion mobile
The Samsung F210 is essentially the follow up to the Samsung Blush. Its tall and slim design makes it really stand out, even among fashion phones, and means that it looks more like a music player than a normal mobile.
Our handset was supplied by Carphone Warehouse, where you can pick it up for free on contact or from £130 on pay as you go.
Like the Samsung Blush, the F201 is aimed at fashionistas and shares that model's tall and thin design. To open the phone, you push the top half of the handset to the left, the screen then automatically swivels into place and reveals the keypad hiding beneath. The keypad may be small, but the keys are reasonably well spaced so texting isn't too much of a problem once you get use to its long and narrow dimensions.
