Samsung Monte Slider


Samsung's Monte Slider is aimed at buyers who want their phone to be a phone, and nothing more.

Very cheap ; Good build quality ; Decent T9 keypad

Proprietary headphone jack ; Poor music software ; Low-res screen

Less impressive is the Samsung Monte Slider’s screen. A 2in model, it leaves a black border surround and the 128 x 160 pixel resolution looks seriously pixellated even at this small scale. It may seem churlish to complain about resolution at this price...

Samsung Monte Slider


There are many phones that try to blind us with science and attempt to push the envelope to find yet more uses and functionality for our pocket pals. And there are some phones that really just want to be phones. Somewhere between two is the Samsung...

Small and light, good build quality

Slow internet access, fuzzy screen, poor music player, slow processor, no data cable, no headphone jack

The Monte Slider is a good-looking basic phone, and it has a few nice features, at least on paper. The trouble is that they’re not very good, so it acts less as a gateway model to the smartphone universe, more of a gatekeeper likely to persuade you...

Samsung Monte Slider Review by 3G


The Monte Slider is not a terrible handset – for calling and texting it works well, and it looks good. But try to use any more advanced features and its limitations are revealed

: User friendly, good looks, neat package

: Lacks 3G and Wi-Fi; social networking is disappointing thanks to the sluggish connections and small display

All in all, the Monte Slider is a decent basic handset that seems to have pretensions above its station. It's great that it includes Bluetooth and an FM radio, but some of the more sophisticated features are just a step too far for a phone of this...

Samsung Monte Slide


As with other models in the Monte line, such as the Monte Bar C3200 and the S5620 Monte, the Samsung Monte Slide E2550 is a work of art in terms of design. Elegantly-styled and spanning only 98.5 mm. long and measuring 48.5 mm. across and only 14.4 mm...

The Monte Slide also has a slightly curved back that makes it more comfortable to handle and operate. The smaller size of this handset makes its easy to put into your pockets or bags.

Just about adequate


I bought this using some Argos vouchers having lost my LG phone abroad and I can't say I'm particularly impressed with it. Ring tones are very limited, particularly message alert tones, and there seems no facility to add others.
