Samsung G600 (SGH-G600)

 Samsung G600 Discontinued
28th July 2007

We got out first sighting of the Samsung G600 a couple of days ago, and now we can tell you almost all of the features of this interesting looking 5 megapixel camera phone.

The main selling feature the SGH-G600 is the camera - a 5 megapixel unit with autofocus and flash. Of course, megapixels aren't everything and a lot will depend on the quality of the lens.

The big surprise about the Samsung G600 is that it isn't a 3G phone which is surprising as Samsung are promoting the SGH-G600 as a web device. It doesn't have WiFi either, and any sort of high-speed data is limited to those few who have access to an EDGE network. And yes, the SGH-G600 looks like it has a front-facing camera, but as far as we can tell from all the official details it isn't.

 SGH-G600 What the Samsung G600 does have is the usual range of applications such as an MP3/AAC/WMA player, stereo Bluetooth, TV output and microSD expandable memory (an impressive 1GB in the standard sales package). The display is a 2.2" 240x320 pixel panel in 16 million colours, and the Samsung SGH-G600 also squeezes in an FM radio.

In addition to the 5 megapixel stills camera, Samsung say that the SGH-G600 can capture video at up to 640 x 480 pixels. Combine this with the TV output and memory card and the G600 looks like a capable little digital camcorder.

Don't forget that it's a phone - in this case the Samsung G600 is a quad-band GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz phone with GPRS and EDGE data. Maximum talktime is 3.5 hours with up to 12 days standby time. At 105 grams, the SGH-G600 is slightly heavier than many current GSM phones.

Samsung have high hopes for the G600, but we think that the lack of 3G data is a major flaw.. and then there are looks. The SGH-G600 looks very much like dozens of other Samsung sliders and there's very little to differentiate it. We think that the G600 will not challenge the dominant Nokia N95 any time soon.
