We can't help but like the Samsung Genio Qwerty, despite the fact that its keyboard is rather small and uncomfortable. It might not prove too much of an impediment if you're patient or have slender fingers, but, otherwise, check out the Orange Rio, which offers a better keyboard, or the Genio To...

We can't help but like the Samsung Genio Qwerty, despite the fact that its keyboard is rather small and uncomfortable. It might not prove too much of an impediment if you're patient or have slender fingers, but, otherwise, check out the Orange Rio, which offers a better keyboard, or the Genio Touch if the Qwerty's features sound good but you'd prefer a touchscreen.

The most important advantages of the CorbyTXT are, without doubt, its affordable price tag and appealing overall look

from PhoneArena

For a device in this class, it offers proper texting and relatively decent audio playback capabilities. What you hear during calls is loud, but rather sharp voices that tend to get monotonous at times. The situation is slightly better on the other end of the line, but as a whole, the in-call quality is a tad below average...

What are the odds of youngsters getting at their parents over the Samsung CorbyTXT B3210 until they finally get what they want? Pretty decent actually, not to mention we won´t be surprised to see adults give in to the temptation as well. The new Samsung´s device is really worth it, but faced a tough opponent, the LG GW300 that is currently available at pretty much the same price, sports larger screen and keyboard buttons, but feels cheap and comes with less youthful design.
