This Samsung SGH-v206 review is based on a technical analysis of the cell phone's technical specifications, it doesn't constitute an actual hands-on review. It outlines the strong and weak points of the Samsung SGH-v206. The strongest points are listed with a (+) sign while the weakest points have a (-) sign before them. This Samsung SGH-v206 analysis is generated automatically based on our specifications for that phone and since manufacturers do not always detail technical specifications clearly, some information may be missing.
(+) Weight and Size: The Samsung SGH-v206 weighs only 3.4 oz. This is rather lighter than average and should make it comfortable to carry around(+) Camera: It features a camera , which is not necessary but may be useful and make your experience better.
(View the latest camera cell phones)(+) Phone Book: It can store 500 phone book entries(-) Built-in Speakerphone: It doesn't feature a built-in speakerphone, yet, a speakerphone is useful in some situations and it's important to know that many other phones do have a built-in speakerphone.
(View the latest cell phones with a built-in speakerphone)(+) Battery Performance: It has a maximum rated standby time of 195 hours and a talk time of 474 minutes, which is above average and should be sufficient for most users.(+) Color Display: The color display's color mode is 65,000 color TFD and its resolution is unknown. A color display helps for browsing the wireless web or viewing pictures and, of course, the larger it is, the better the experience and, the more colors, the better your pictures will look.(-) Analog Roaming: It doesn't support analog roaming. Analog is the older North-American cellular technology, however North-American networks are increasingly converting to large digital-only networks, which makes analog a not-so-useful feature (check coverage maps for your area to discriminate on that aspect).(-) Bluetooth: It is not Bluetooth-enabled. Bluetooth is not really necessary but may be handy if you want to use a wireless headset or exchange data with your (Bluetooth-enabled) laptop, for instance.(+) Infrared: It includes an infrared port. Infrared is convenient, especially if you own a laptop (most laptops are infrared equipped), you can then use your computer to transfer contacts, ringtones or pictures (if the phone supports these functions) to the Samsung SGH-v206.(+) Text Messaging: It features a special way of typing text, either a full keyboard or some predictive text entry method such as T9 or iTAP. This is useful if you need to send short messages: it's much faster.(-) Voice Note: It doesn't have a voice note recorder. A voice note system is quite useful to make quick notes and reminders while on the road.(-) Free Custom Ringtones: . We don't have sufficient information on the Samsung SGH-v206 to know if it accepts custom ringtones in a free do-it-yourself manner and, that means you may not be able to add custom ringtones yourself and for free, you may be obliged to deal with your carrier's paid service. If that is important for you, many other phones allow you to do it yourself and for free, which makes a difference if your intention is to personalize your phone.
