5.0 out of 5 stars Great product for the price, 13 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung E1200 Sim Free Mobile Phone - Discontinued by manufacturer (Electronics)
This is certainly not a phone for the technophile who has to have an all singing gadget. I have not even found a way to change the ring tone! However, it is small, neat and perfectly functional as a phone. Yes, it is small, but not excessively. From another reviewer's comments, I thought it was going to be tiny and the buttons fiddly to work. In fact, it is no smaller than the Siemens A60 I had many years ago, or the Nokia Walkman phone I had after that. The buttons are actually of a good size and easily used. The screen is very small and of low resolution, but you have to ask what this is going to be used for. It will not be used for viewing videos or pictures. The phone will not do that. It simply has to present the various functions that the phone will provide. It does this perfectly.

The phone starts up quickly and gave very good reception with the EE sim I put in it to test it. The battery is supposed to keep going for days. Not tried it in ernest yet, since the phone was bought to use while we are abroad and just need a simple mobile with a local sim in it.

For the money, you really have to try very hard to find anything that is not perfectly acceptable. Combine that with the reputation Samsung currently has for mobile phones and it is really a superb buy. If all you want is a basic no nonsense mobile phone that will work with any sim you put into it, you would be hard-pushed to find something better.
