    What do you expect from something so hard, that would be shock and water resistant. It has to be like this…:)

    Is this a paid review?

    It would be good to know what downsides there are to the phone. I find the person who wrote the first comment to be more helpful when describing the hardness of the keys and the clunkiness of the unit.

    Samsung always comes up with innovative ideas. Samsung GURU was also a striking innovation and MARINE seems to be a tougher and bigger product. Specially in a country like INDIA, this is an awesome product.

    Bought one 3-4 weeks ago. Here are my comments :

    Since every one wants price first – Rs 4450 at Mobile Store in Shoppers Stop

    Strengths :
    1] Lot of features – some nifty ones like
    a] Time of day when you want the keypad light to come on
    b] Flexible alarm settings
    c] When making a call, numbers appear at the bottom of the screen as you type so that you can select
    2] Pressing any button switches on the backlight – very useful since you do not have to unlock first.
    3] Brilliant torch
    4] The voice quality is generally good

    Could do better :
    1] Biggest design flaw : The charging and hands-free/FM radio port are the same. So either you charge or you use hands-free/radio – you cant do both. Effectively, cant use it for long calls using hands-free and simultaneously charge it
    2] Battery life seems highly over-stated in the specs – I used it once with the hand-free for a few minutes and the battery just ran down to a bar from four bars
    3] Since this is meant for rugged use, a fluorescent border would have really helped
    4] Ok camera – if you want to take good quality pictures, buy a proper camera ?
    5] Using Tasks in the organizer is cumbersome for one-time reminders – better to set an alarm
    6] FM radio reception ok
    7] Very sketchy manual – I have found a lot of the features just through trial and error

    Incidentally, I do not think it is clunky. It has a good feel to it, adn neither are the keys shard as to be inconvenient. Yes, typing speed is a little slow but it is tolerable.

    Very Bad. Handset automatically get switched off after 1 hour of Full Charging. Worst Battery Backup. Never suggest anybody to buy this phone.

  • Gaurav Kumar

    Very Poor Battery Backup. I dont suggest anybody buy this phone. Phone switch off only after 10 hours without making any call.
