Samsung Tint is an entry level cell phone that comes with an average audio quality, text and multimedia messaging with threaded support (which is a surprise), instant messaging and mobile Web mail. The Tint pretty much covers the essentials: alarm clock, calculator, world clock, calendar, vibrate mode, polyphonic ringtones, stop watch, memo pad, unit and currency converter, speakerphone and 500 contact phone book. More advanced users will appreciate the presence of stereo Bluetooth, voice recorder and voice commands.
Samsung Tint is a flip phone that has changeable covers and a stamp like exterior display that shows the usual: date, time, battery life, signal strength and caller ID. As it supports 65.000 colors, it shows photo caller ID and it also works as the camera’s viewfinder. Once you flip open the device, you will find the main 1.9 inches LCD display, the navigation array and the alphanumeric keypad. The internal screen does not deliver rich looking colors, quite the opposite: the images look overcast and the text is legible and nothing more. The aforementioned navigation array and alphanumeric keypad are both flat and slippery, but they are spacious with well sized buttons.
As you might have expected, the multimedia department is pretty skimp. You only get a VGA camera that has a few editing options, but it is not video recording capable and it does not have a Flash. Surprisingly enough, the picture quality is quite decent for a VGA camera: there is little image noise and the colors look pretty good.
