Samsung U600 Review: Slim Is Sweet: Design, Construction

More than a fashion accessory

Samsung U600 is surely an eye-turner. In fact, its ultra slim and flashy design may lead people to believe that functionality is not his element. And, believe us, that would be an absolutely incorrect assumption. Anyway, we'll acquire back to that later in our review. For now let's focus on the design. Samsung U600 will be available in several colors. We got hrecent of the Black Softfeel one and it certainly won our appreciation. The device itself measures 103.5 x 49.3 x 10.9 mm and weighs only 81 grams, so it fits perfectly in any shirt or trouser pocket. In fact, at most times you would hardly feel it's there. If your previous handset wasn't Samsung U100, that is.

The earpiece opening can be seen just a few millimeters above the 2.22" display. By the way, the display itself is worthy of a few words, but we'll acquire to it a small later. Continuing our way through the front of Samsung U600, we come upon the touch-sensitive soft keys, that are located slightly above the D-pad. Below the soft keys are the Dial key and Delete/Menu-exit key, which are also touch sensitive. The final control here is the web access/confirm key in the middle of the navigation pad. We really aren't huge fans of the concept of placing the web access key there, as this results in unwanted starting of the web browser now and then, but that's just our opinion.




The earpiece is of remarkable size and sound quality • Touch sensitive keys surround the D-pad

The left side of Samsung U600 features the volume rocker and the Universal Serial Bus (USB) slot. The rocker had its place switched from the top end, where it was found on D900 to the bottom, correct above the Universal Serial Bus (USB) slot. A questionable decision indeed, as it is now susceptible to accidental pressing when talking on the phone. After all, this is exactly where you would normally hrecent a slider phone during calls.




The volume rocker is placed on the left side but it could've been moved a bit higher to avoid accidental pressing • Right under it is the Universal Serial Bus (USB) slot

The bottom part holds no controls and is livened up only by a small ribbed design. Switching to the correct side, we come across the microSD card slot and the dedicated capturing camera key. They are located symmetrically to the controls located on the left side, i.e. at the lowest part of the side panel possible. This time accidental presses of the dedicated capturing camera key are much less probable, as the key itself is very rigid and requires much more pressure.

The top of the phone contains the Power key, which is the last unmentioned control on the phone. It is situated at the correct side and is very slightly raised above the shiny plastic that surrounds it. This way it's easier to press, despite its tiny size. The top of the phone and its "chin" (the bottom of the rear part of the slider that is not covered by the front when it's closed) are made of shiny plastic, whereas the rest of the phone is finished in opaque, but equally slick looking plastic.

Samsung U600 is surely an eye-turner. In fact, its ultra slim and flashy design may lead people to believe that functionality is not his element. And, believe us, that would be an absolutely incorrect assumption.
