Samsung SGH-U600

Phones
[ background music ] >> Hi, this is Kent German [assumed spelling], senior editor here at CNET.com. Today we're gonna take a first look at the Samsung SGHU600. This is part of Samsung's ultra edition series, and it is available online, just not available at the U.S. carrier at the moment. And it is a slider phone, as you can see. It is one of the thinnest phones around, but you know, those records never last long. As far as its basic shape goes, it is very similar to other Samsung phones we've seen. Display is really bright, it's nice and very colorful. The navigation buttons and controls are a little different than what we've seen before. These are touch controls right down here, they're the two soft keys, and they're actually sort of built into the display. The talk and the end and, which also doubles as a clear button, are touch controls as well. I'm not a huge fan of touch controls like these, I think that they can be a little too sensitive, you can press a button all the time accidentally. One thing that's interesting though is that when you're on a call, the touch controls actually become locked. So if you want to end the call, you have to press this button to unlock, and then you have to press the end key. Keypad buttons weren't bad. They are flat with the surface of the phone, but they have a slight ridge between them. So not too bad for dialing by feel. Also they're good size, and the numbers on the keys are large. Sliding mechanism works well, you can open and close it with one hand. Wish there was a thumb grip though, or something down here to help you pull the screen down if you want it. Thought that the call quality could be a little better, wasn't very loud in some cases, and just wasn't a fan of those touch controls. Overall though, stylish phone with a nice set of features.
