Surely that should be
battery life longer than an English SUMMER!!
Take a look at the specifications of the new Samsung M110 and you could be forgiven for thinking that you were looking at the details for a handset made a decade ago rather than something fresh off the drawing board. For all concerned, playing tunes and taking great snaps is absolutely not what the M110 is about. The clue is …
Bought one of these as a spare phone for when I'm camping or at Festivals. Bought from Tesco's after the review on the Gadget show the other week, only £30 and easily unlocked to put it onto Orange. Great solid little box and rated more solid than the JCB by tests on the gadget show.
To start with, more functions would equal a higher price and in the real world 'high price' and 'tough' are mutually exclusive.
True, kid gloves aplenty, except theyre not mutually exclusive given the majority of electronics gadgets naturally cost a lot more when adding ruggedisation (wow a new word!) - take any ruggedised laptop, generally underpowered, but bump on at least £500.
I like the phone from what you write about it, but again think this is overpriced for what it truly is. It shouldn't cost £50 over the odds just because they added rubber padding and used higher compound plastics and metals! Raw materials like this over the normal thin plastics just dont cost that much.
When are the manufacturers going to make a phone that's actually a phone? This is definitely a step in the right direction - but why not make one that isn't the rugged drop it in the manure type and is instead an aesthetically pleasing tool, that just does the phone, text and moreorless bugr'all else but makes it all look really good?
The only similar feature-deprived phones I've seen are the really basic Sony Ericsson's and Nokia's, which even a fashion-unconscious pleb like me wouldn't be seen dead with.
This phone sounds like a step in the right direction.
Nor sure about child proof, but it is IT tech proof (which amounts to the same thing).
We just had one of these for trial, the most anyone managed to do was to get it to reset by kicking it the length of the corridor.
The techs took it home for more 'scientific testing', comments coming back were "Cor, this can't half take a pounding" and "It took the paint off my radiator no problem"!
