Samsung Corby S3653 Full Touch Screen Phone review 102


Sporting a 2.8  inch capacitive touch screen, Samsung Corby definitely makes a strong statement in the Mobile market. With no real competition in the low end Touch Screen scenario, Samsung tries to strengthen its hold in the sub Rs 10,000 / $240  Touch screen market. After good success with Samsung STAR and STAR 3G, this phone is expected to consolidate its hold.

The phone has an unusual rounded shape rather than a typical bar shape of 5800 or Apple . Also the phone comes in funky colors like Caribbean Yellow,Pink etc. Lets look how it compares against other similar in terms of dimensions and thickness
