Another go at sliders

Now, Samsung are obviously really fond of the slider form factor. Given the number of sliders and clamshells in their portfolio, it's a safe bet that the bar form factor is somewhat out of favor for the most part. The Samsung G600 is a relatively compact handset, though not exactly the Ultra stuff. It's in fact the most compact 5 megapixel handset to date.

A lot of metal is used for the body finish making for a really fine and sophisticated handset. Above the display there is a large loudspeaker grill. In fact, as with most Samsung sliders, the earpiece and the loudspeaker are nested together. There is also a special ambient light sensor that controls the display brightness - colorful for sunlight, dim for darkness. It's a nice perk and this is the first time Samsung are using it. The navigation keypad is below the relatively large 2.2" TFT display, which surprisingly can visualize up to 16M colors. That's another first for Samsung. We suppose that putting a 16M color display into a feature phone was only possible by throwing in a more powerful processor. That would also elaborate the unusually snappy user interface. The D-pad under the display is rather conservative (we've all seen what Samsung can do with scroll wheels and touch sensitive keys), though surprisingly comfortable and user-friendly.

The alphanumeric keypad is pretty much the same - remarkable for typing without looking at the keys at all. Although the keys are almost completely flat, tactile feedback is great. As usual Samsung does well with sliding springs (there we go again with sliders and clamshells).




The keypad is easy to utilize • the sliding mechanism is great

The right-hand side of the Samsung G600 only features the capturing camera shutter key and the memory card slot. The shutter key for the capturing camera is a two-step one, much like on a digital camera. A halfway press focuses and locks the exposure, while the full press actually takes the picture.
