Samsung S5620 Monte Review – Highly Recommended Cost Effective 3G/GPS/WiFi Phone

Today, I visited Samsung Demo at a local Mall and one of their new Mobile Phone Samsung Monte (S5620) instantly! Really, amazing phone with great features. Anyone who is looking for a 3G phone with good features, should grab this one!






  • Amazing Finger friendly 3.0 inch 256K Color Capacitive Touch Screen
  • 3G Network support
  • A-GPS
  • WiFi
  • 3.2 MP Camera without Flash (Secondary Camera is also present!)
  • Accelerometer
  • Facebook/Twitter and other built-in Social Apps!
  • FM Radio
  • Much much more.

This phone is just a bargain. Here in Bangalore, this phone is getting sold at around 9,500 INR which is great! I might buy this as well!

The only disadvantage is that it comes with Samsung’s proprietary OS. So, if you are really geek, interested in trying out applications, customizations then you should research more. (Pictures from
