Samsung E900 (SGH-E900)

Samsung E900 keypad Available now
7th June 2006

The Samsung E900 is yet another sliding phone from the Samsung stable, this time with touch sensitive buttons very much like those on the LG KG800" Chocolate" phone.

Although superficially similar, the Samsung SGH-E900 is a much better specified handset than it's LG rival - it has a better screen and camera, plus a memory card slot. In fact, if you just look at the specification sheet, then the Samsung E900 looks substantially more capable than the LG Chocolate.

The SGH-E900's display is a 240x320 pixel panel in 256,000 colours. There's a 2 megapixel camera with flash, 80Mb of internal memory expandable with microSD (TransFlash) cards, a TV output and Bluetooth. The E900 weighs 93 grams and measures 94x45x17mm, which is a little thick and 10 grams heavier than the LG.

 Samsung E900 The buttons are the main selling point of the Samsung E900 - they light up according to what your are doing and are touch sensitive. To be honest, it's the kind of thing that you're either going to love or hate, but they do look quite cool.

The Samsung E900's software package is the usual mix of an MP3 player, web browser, email client and PIM functions, although it does include a document viewer.

As we said, on paper the SGH-E900 looks much better than the LG KG800 Chocolate, but the Chocolate is a very attractive design whereas this really looks like a run-of-the-mill Samsung (really, it's almost identical to the D800/D820. The difference is in the details - LG have styled the Chocolate from the ground up.. Samsung have simply adapted an existing design.. and ultimately, the LG is the sleeker looking handset.

Still, it's not a bad phone and we think that this is the only 2 megapixel GSM sliding in Samsung's vast range apart from last year's D600 model. The Samsung E900 is available now on most major networks in Europe.
