One of the most important user groups to Samsung, are those who want the low-end phones as possible, at a reasonable price. E1120 is the second cheapest phone you can buy today. We have had the phone on the test bench for a while now, and here is the result.
The phone’s appearance is fairly traditional and anonymous. Lids are plastic, which is not quite giving you the exclusive feel. But it can not claim with the S1120, since it costs Rs. 2080.
Both the menu keys and number keys are made of soft rubber, in addition, to all big mobiles. This makes it very comfortable to type SMS with the phone. Each menu key, however, has an ever so slight clicking sound when you use it.
The screen on E1120 is simply wicked little, or 1.52 inches high, if we are to go into details. The resolution is 128 x 128 pixels. This gives you a little and low dissolved screen.
E1120 is a simple phone, which is reflected in the menus. A grid of nine icons provide shortcuts to the alarm clock, SMS, settings, calendar, history, games, notes, phone book and programs.
Both icons and menus are otherwise transparent and easy to orient themselves in. The simple graphics are also in style with the limited screen size and resolution, so it all looks neat and nice.
Such a simple phone that E1120 does not have much information to process for each keystroke. And it marked, for the phone is in fact lightning fast in menus.
Piece of SMS writing
The SMS-writing goes smoothly with the E1120. You can find easily in both spaces and punctuation menus. The phone also gives you great letter of sentences, which is far from it, has been a matter of course for Samsung’s simpler models previously.
E1120 does not have camera, music player or radio, but however one game. The game is Sudoku. Should you get tired of Sudoku, it’s stupid for you. For you have no possibility to install other games on the phone.
Otherwise you will find a small list of programs and features, such as Calendar, Converter, calculator, stopwatch and timer. Need a little extra light in the darkness, the phone’s screen can also function as a flashlight by light up in white.
Talking on E1120 works usually fine. The sound is completely normal in our end, but the other side complained of and to the mincing of the sound and big wave vote.
Speech time, however, nothing to complain about we think. The phone keeps out over a week with moderate to little use.
