Touted as Samsung Libre in UK, this phone, a Samsung Champ C3300K in AsiaPacific, was indeed FREE c/o telco service provider as a second loyalty reward for this year. It pays to be a loyal customer and patient at an occasionally erratic delivered services. Well, nothing is perfect as they say, and that holds true with devices as well.
Same goes true with Samsung Champ C3300K. It doesn't have the usual bells-and-whistles, a lowly 1.3MP camera, no 3G, plus other several other glaring omissions, but the name itself champs over when it comes to the cheapest touchscreen-implemented phone, being retailed at Samsung Mobile Concept Shop for less than 5grand.
With specs such as a TFT resistive touchscreen that enabled display with the support for 240 x 320 pixels and a descent 2.4 inch size of about 256K colors, this may pale in comparison as compared to other touchscreen phones, but it's sufficient enough to handle basic functionalities. It even has an accelerometer sensor for auto-rotation of the user interface layer called TouchWiz Lite edition. My real obvious gripe is that it dwarfed on my large fingers.
Compact and stylish with a nice convenient grip, the Samsung Champ is targeted to youngsters(or feeling-young few) who are enamored at the exciting features like TouchWiz Lite, social networking services, FM Radio that plays without the headphones plugged in. And it even plays on the stereo speakers. There’s a microSD slot as well to hold an extensive music collection.
I have been using several Samsung phones for quite a long time now and I somehow noticed some software stupors such as an old browser and poor SNS support, but overall this one is simpler to use with a solid-built design.
