Of late, Samsung has largely come to be associated with high-end smartphones like the Galaxy SIII. But we must not forget that Samsung has a plethora of feature phones at its back, which too are equally popular. To revive its populist image, Samsung has announced the launch of the GT-C3780 candybar-style feature phone.
Some of the major highlights of this phone are 2.4-inch display with 240x320p resolution, 3MP camera, microSD card slot, FM, music player, ChatON app and 1000mAh battery. Since the phone was announced in Germany, it will most likely be available here for €800 (around $100). The phone will soon make its appearance in the rest of Europe following its official launch in Germany. Let us have a closer look at its core features in this review.
