Samsung's lightest 3G phone so far

Mobile phones

We can’t say for certain who has the smallest and lightest 3G phone so far, but one of the contenders has to be the SGH-Z500 from Samsung which has just gone on sale in the UK via Vodafone and O2. The clamshell phone is just 95g which these days isn’t a great deal more than most standard GPRS models. The trade off though is the rather paltry battery life of just 260 hours standby and three hours talk time. Nevertheless it has plenty of features including a pair of cameras (one VGA and one 1.3 mega pixel) that enables users to capture still and moving images and make video calls, a high quality 176 x 220 pixel TFT 256K display, Bluetooth, MP3 playback and Java. The phone has 50MB of internal storage which can be supplemented via its TransFlash card slot.
