Fashionable Mobile Samsung B2100 Red

The Samsung B2100 Red is the best equipped yet to handle extreme conditions, with a waterproof casing and military-grade imperviousness to the elements. So it can survive at least half an hour's full submersion in 1metre of water, as well as being
dust-resistant. In addition, the phone has been toughened up to comply with the US military MIL-STD-810F standard which means it can withstand blowing rain, salt, fog, humidity, solar radiation, shock, vibration and extreme temperatures.

While Samsung B2100 Red's built to withstand a bit of rough stuff, The Samsung B2100 Red is not the most feature-laden of handsets. Unlike the Samsung Bound, it lacks 3G, relying on quad-band GSM and GPRS and EDGE data connectivity, thus limiting its multimedia muscle. It has a camera, but it is a mere 1.3-megapixel entry-level snapper. The Samsung B2100 Red manages to maintain reasonable bodyweight 102.8g. The latter offsetting the austere look.

The rubber-feel casing gives the phone good handling characteristics for using in the wet or cold weather. It fits nicely in the hand and is well weighted too. Waterproofing requirements demand a lockable back panel, which can be opened or closed by turning a screw, using a coin or similar object.

This maintains the integrity of the waterproofing but doesn't do a lot for the texting action. It's a bit spongy for fast message tapping, though the numbers are large enough and adequately defined to avoid mispressing. Speedy texters may not enjoy it, though it's chunky enough for cold or wet fingers to press. It'll probably pass muster for texting with light gloves on too, though it was too awkward for our thicker ski gloves to negotiate. Having submerged it in water for 30 minutes, You can
confirm that it came out alive and in full working order.

The Samsung B2100 Red is consistent with the sort of menu systems we have seen on many other low- and mid-range Samsungs, it worked for a lower resolution presentation on the screen. It has an initial start-up wizard, which from first switch-on confirms configuration settings as well as the date and time.
