Samsung GT-S9110 Touchscreen Watch Mobile Phone


At first glance it seems that the GT-S9110 Watch Phone by Samsung is quite bigger, modern watch with high quality leather strap. But on closer inspection one can see that it is happens to be a phone for your wrist. The conversation is either via an integrated loudspeaker via speaker or with the supplied Bluetooth headsets which is already available. With a market price of 471st - ? (without contract, shipping and depending on the provider), the Samsung Watch Phone is not exactly cheap. The lifestyle accessory, however, has neither EDGE nor UMTS. Due to the small screen it is hard to go surf on the Internet. Even a camera is not available. Whether these watch phone was able to convince us, we will see in our test.

Business functions

2. Data transfer - Bluetooth 2.0, Bluetooth with stereo audio streaming (A2DP), USB, WAP 2.0, GPRS Class 10.

3. Reception and voice quality - The Samsung GT-S9110 has an excellent reception quality, even if the network coverage is not so perfect. The vocal sound playback on the built-in speaker is not realistic, but is provided with a light scratching. In connection with the Bluetooth headset, the voice rises markedly. Voices are clear and seem relatively comfortable.

4. Voice quality of the speaker - The voice playback at medium volume is still well understood. At higher but somewhat distorted.

5. Battery life (with normal use) - 4 days.

6. Storage capabilities of Contacts - Name, phone, phone, detail Add / Delete Details: Mobile, Phone, Fax, Etc.. Email, Group, caller Ring Tone, Caller picture; groups: family, friends, Office, Unassigned.

The playback of the recording sounds good to understand. But if you get too close to the microphone, significant distortions and other acoustic artifacts are audible.

11. E-mail functionality - NA.

12. Internet functionality - The loading of the website takes a long time, since Edge is missing. It is understandably difficult to present a clear view of the web pages because of the screen that is noticeably too small.

13. Other features - Voice Memo, Voice Recorder, Bluetooth, memo (Notes), calculator, conversion, alarm, clock, world clock.

14. Business Results - The quad band mobile phone via Bluetooth provides rapid data transfer. Fast Internet connections are not possible due to a lack of Edge and UMTS. 4 days battery life is commendable. Calendar, profiles and contacts are to the usual standard. The memo holds only 70 characters and can not score points here for the mobile-Clock. The voice recorder provides good results if they do not go too close for recording purpose. Finding and opening web pages takes less elaborate time. The GT-S 9110 still has features like Bluetooth, calculator, currency conversion, world clock and alarm which is also a good point.

Unfortunately there is no way to extend the memory of the GT S9110 with Micro SD card

Overall Conclusion

The Samsung offers a very rich market price to a basic grade, fully equipped, at least in the GT S9110 Watch Phone. With high quality workmanship and despite the larger dimensions, very chic design contributes to the Watch Phone for the wrist. The display consists of tempered glass and makes it scratch-resistant and protects against damage. Regrettably, the leather strap was a little too short. The internal music player scores with ease of use and produces good sound. The speaker has been very favorably placed. Loading the web from the Samsung GT-S9110, however, has little difficulty. The response of the touch screen on the other hand runs evenly. In the price range (from 471st - ?) the Samsung S9110 GT, is certainly not for a bargain-priced, but for a lifestyle accessory of a kind.
