Samsung SGH-G600 review | Introduction
S amsung have been active on the mobile phone market for quite some years now and already have several successes on their name. Nowadays, the mobiles get more and more extensive. In the beginning of this year the Nokia N95 was introduced; a mobile phone with a 5 Megapixel camera. Sony Ericsson followed with the K850i and now Samsung too with the SGH-G600. The Samsung G600 is a so-called slider mobile with extensive features, including a 5 Megapixel digital camera. A high-megapixel camera in a mobile phone is no unknown territory for Samsung. On the CeBIT in Hannover last year, they already presented the Samsung SCH-B600, a mobile phone with 10 Megapixels and 3x optical zoom. Unfortunately, the B600 will not be available in Europe, but hopefully Samsung have used their experience in the high Megapixel segment to make the Samsung G600 a success. Our findings can be read in the following Samsung SGH-G600 review.
Samsung G600 - Design
Samsung SGH-G600 - Design
Just like we have seen many times before, Samsung pays a lot of attention to the design of the mobile phone, which is also the case with the Samsung G600. A combination of tight outlines and round forms make sure the camera looks good, but not overly prominent. Even a business man will fall for the design of the Samsung G600. The handset comes in dark grey with three silver colored buttons on the front side. Directly beneath the screen we see a raised edge to slide the mobile open, this edge could have been made a bit higher, because now your finger will slip past it at times.

Samsung SGH-G600 - Buttons
When the Samsung SGH-G600 is closed, you will find a few buttons on the front side for taking a call or ending it, opening the menu and finding the contacts. In the middle we find the navigation buttons with the confirmation button in the centre. The buttons are locked when the mobile is closed and will be unlocked when the phone is opened, when receiving a call or after pressing a certain key combination. When the handset is opened, we will see reasonably sized, numerical buttons. Even someone with larger fingers can operate the buttons without a problem.
