The stylish Samsung UltraTouch S8300 has finally arrived in Singapore (in late March) and VR Zone managed to get one in for review. Read on.
It was just last Saturday (28 March) that Samsung officially made their latest UltraTouch S8300 phone available at all authorized retail stores.
Announced at the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona, in February, the S8300 is the newest flagship edition to the Ultra family. It has a brushed metal frame with two-tone color which makes it look really stylish. On top of that, the slider phone is only 12.7mm slim. But its not just a slider phone; the S8300 also has a scratch resistant touchscreen display that provides vivid display of images and videos and let you navigate and access the applications easily with your finger.
Other features include 2.8-inch AMOLED touchscreen display, built-in 8-megapixel camera, GPS navigation and supports 7.2 Mbps HSDPA Internet access. Everything sounds good, except that this phone does not have integrated Wi-Fi connectivity.
