Samsung Z540

At the end of last year Samsung announced this slim 3G clamshell, and it will surely be a market hit this year. The RAZR-like design is crisp, uncluttered and elegant. The phone feels very comfortable in the hand both when opened and closed; when it’s open, it is very easy to use and the weight balance is perfect. The keypad leaves a very good impression – it’s almost absolutely flat but is still easy to distinguish the buttons. Only the four-way control button is a pickle as the confirm button can be easily mistaken with one of the four ways. The backlighting of the keypad is rather poor though.
The main 256K colours QVGA display is good – very vivid, large enough, great picture, clear and legible even in direct sunlight. The backlighting is good too.
The camera interface is rather slow and irritating – taking photos of moving objects is nearly impossible – and the camera lacks flash, macro and night mode.
l A good phone let down by some minor drawbacks
