Samsung R680 REPP Review
Samsung once again strengthens its position in the low-end segment of the phone industry and launches a brand new CDMA handset, the Samsung R680 REPP. It offers many wonderful features, which can benefit average users. The phone uses the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and it’s powered by a decent 800MHz processor. The phone is definitely not for power users as the processor is a major setback compared to contemporary Android handsets, which use processors faster than 1GHz. The display qualities and amazing looks matches the stylish design of the rest Samsung devices. You can get support for both 2G and 3G technologies. The CDMA2000 1xEV-DO connectivity is consisted of HSDPA (2.1Mbps) and HSUPA (2.4Mbps)
The sleek device weighs 105 g and the 3.2” display is somewhat mediocre with 320 x 480 pixels resolution and 180 ppi pixel density. Phonebook entries and call records storage are practically unlimited. It comes with many standard features for smartphones such as proximity sensor, accelerometer and multi touch input. The processor is supported by a modest 1GB of RAM and users get 2GB of internal storage. Just like other Android devices, the memory card slot supports up to 32GB of microSD card. Other than the standard Wi-Fi connection, Wi-Fi Direct and Wi-Fi tethering, users can get Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP. It doesn’t have infrared port, which limit its functionality somewhat. The Samsung R680 REPP has a 3.15Mp camera and unfortunately, there is no secondary camera. Overall, Samsung’s new phone is not an impressive device and Samsung designed it only for those who don’t need high-end features.
