Affordable simplicity describes the Samsung E2120 perfectly

The Samsung E2120 is a typically stylish Samsung handset, released in September 2009 for the replacement and second handset market. Simple in design as well as functionality, its limited features justify its affordability. Compact and lightweight would describe the handset. It weighs 74 g in weight and measures 105 mm x 45 mm wide whilst being 15 mm thick.

In amongst its functionality the Samsung E2120 provides an MP3/MP4 player for entertainment purposes as well as a stereo FM radio, which has a built in antenna. This ensures musical and video entertainment can be enjoyed on this handset, as it will play the majority of audio and video file types as well as provide an array of regional and national radio stations as an alternative to downloaded music and video files.

A 1.52 inch CSTN display screen is provided with this handset and displays up to 65,000 colours at a pixel screen size of 128 by 128 pixels. Alert types provided include ring and vibration options as well as the ability to download polyphonic and MP3 ringtones, as a further enhancement and means of individualising the handset. The handset also comes with a speakerphone as standard. Internal memory within the handset is 9 MB, with the option of upgrading utilising the microSD card slot.

A VGA style camera is provided with this handset which operates at 640 x 480 pixels. Images taken with this camera are suitably good enough to display on the display screen with a good resolution. As an alternative to still imagery, the camera
provides video recording and playback capabilities.

The handset comes with GPRS, blue tooth and USB. This provides the means to share files seamlessly with suitably attired devices as well as downloading and synchronising to and from a PC. The handset comes with a variety of games included within the package as well as the ability to download further games if desired

The Samsung E2120, like the Samsung E1080, is a simple handset which is aimed at a
specific market. This is either the user who requires simple functionality or as a replacement handset. Although limited in its functionality, it is still a fully featured handset which provides sufficient features to make it a viable option for
those looking for a second handset or replacement.
