Image for Samsung E690: A very good phone for its price

I purchased this product from a Chennai store recently for about 8000 rupees (200 $). Now the price very much reduced, and can be available for seven thousand or less. This is a great gadget, because of its display, usability, security and reception strength. But very rarely, the phone goes out and shuts off automatically. Otherwise, it is just one of the best out there.

The only trouble, as far as I see it is the battery life. The battery life is four hours talk time, and about two hundred hours standby time. But the talk time has now reduced a bit, due to my battery not holding charge well now. You should keep the battery in a very healthy manner.

I don't really like it's ringer volume. I guess it could be made much more than its available volume. But in a quiet atmosphere, it gives a nice ring. But in a very noisy places, you can miss calls. So, please use ring + vibe mode when in noisy places.

The camera is also poor, and gives very slow and unclear vision. But it has many features, and has got even a very good photo editor. Display is TFT, but has got only 65k colors. But TFT gives a nice display. The phone has all the features like bluetooth, vieo recording, playing, fm radio, audio recording, planner, stopwatch, timer, calender, good external display, camera, gprs, microSD slot for 2GB card etc. And lacks only on infrared.

The external display is fantastic. It can be used to take pictures of yourself using the camera. It also gives a cool clock wallpaper which you can set. This is one of the coolest features of the phone, I guess.

The phone is clamshell model, with one very comparable slider model from Samsung. I personally like the clamshell model, so I gave a good review on the design above. If you like the other type, please find its reviews.

Overall, this is a very good phone and offers the best performance and features at the pricetag. Since the price is lower now, I guess it can be a real good choice. The phone is available with a one year warranty and in three colors, white, black and pink.
