Boasting of personal organization tools, the Samsung T159 for T-Mobile is the perfect phone for users who want to simplify their life. This affordably priced device offers up to eight days of standby power and is perfect for users who only want to make voice calls. You can use the flip phone for voice calling and text messages. Although the phone’s features are kept basic, the Samsung T159 is outfitted with caller ID, Bluetooth and a 1.3 megapixel camera.
This phone is not particularly noteworthy for its features, but that is expected with an entry-level phone. It has a graceful line and an all-black look. This phone stands just 3.8 inches tall and is only 1.9 inches wide. This 2.9 ounce phone is only 0.6 inches thick. It has features if you want to check the time or view signal strength. It also shows all awaiting messages and any missed calls. Placed above the screen, users will find a 1.3 megapixel camera. This camera is capable of taking photos and recording video. On the interior of the phone, users will find a 1.8 inch screen and a thick joint. To protect the phone, a rubber stopper is installed on top. Under the phone’s screen, users will find two soft keys, a power button and a clear button. The volume rocker is found on the left of the phone and a headset jack is located on the right. Although there is not a micro SD slot, that drawback is expected with an entry level phone. This display screen has just a 128x160 WVGA resolution and large letters. If you want to, you can customize the backlight times, wallpaper and the brightness of the phone.
Since this phone is intended to just place phone calls, it is designed to make clear calls. Users can update phone numbers with the contact’s information, birthdate, email and a note. If you want to, you can link the contact from one of the 18 different ringtones that the phone can store. The Samsung T159 allows users to turn off the ringer for the phone and select vibration or silent ring tone options. Users can access Bluetooth support, send text messages and receive multimedia messaging. This basic phone is conveniently equipped with an RSS reader, a world clock, a timer, a tip calculator and voice commands. Although it is considered an entry level phone, it still offers more features than your run-of-the-mill basic device. Users can operate a converter, set a stopwatch or access their calendar. Since the phone can connect to 3G networks, users can access their email and social media sites.
The 1.3 megapixel camera is Samsung’s update to the former phones in the “t” series. To launch the camera, users just have to click the button on the right side of the phone. Outdoor shots are saturated and the phone does not have a flash option. Users can select from three different shooting modes and resolutions for their photos.
Overall, the Samsung T159 offers excellent call quality and has a good volume level. Audio is often clearer than smartphones and has a natural sounding voice reproduction. As an entry level phone, the Samsung T159 for T-Mobile is perfect for users who want a simple phone for voice calls.
