The Slim Samsung X830 MP3 Music Phone

This is the sexy and very stylish Samsung X830 and the reason it is so sexy is because not only is it a slider phone it is also a swivel one cool ah. This phone is pretty similar to the Korean Version called the SPH-S4300, the Samsung X830 mobile phone will come with 82MB of internal memory even thou the Korean version has 1GB but hey who cares the phone is sexy.

You get a 1.3 megapixel camera plus the mobile phone supports MP3, WMA, OGG, SMP and DCF formats, the 128 x 220 pixels LCD screen is very sexy and is very nice in the size department not too big and definitely not to small. This is a fantastic MP3 player as well.

The other cool feature of this phone is the styling for example the keypad is in rows of 2 instead of the normal boring 3. The phone weighs only 74 grams and the size is 85 x 29 x 20 mm.

Other features are Bluetooth and USB 2.0 plus this mobile phone comes in Black, White, Orange and Pink

We have heard through the grapevine that the Samsung X830 should be available as from October 2006.

You can either buy the Samsung X830 on contract or pay as you go at The Carphone Warehouse check out the great deals below –

    hi i have got this fone but think its crap as i have no clue at all how you get music on the fone! i have downloaded onto the cd and allsorts when i connect the usb to the phone and computer it isnt registered anyone had same problem??

  11. jo says:

    you need to put the samsung software program on your pc then its really easy to transfer music to it using that program just follow the instructions, i have had no problem at all, my only downfall with the phone is that the ring tone is not very loud
    hope this helps

  12. shabang says:

    i think the phone is one in million, so small and powerful. i love the orange and pink colours and the way it can store so much music, over all it’s a great phone and i’m getting one.

    ive got one of these, its excellent as an mp3 player as it holds hundreds of songs the only downside of this phone is the ringer when somebody calls you is soooo quiet…. keep it on vibrate and your cool…. the cheapest place to get it just now is Morrisons its on offer for 69.99 but is usually 99.99…. Gemz xXx

  25. spencer says:

    hi i no that in the UK u can get the samsung X830 in an O2 phone shop for
    149.99 pounds
    its well nice though

  26. ashley says:

    I’ve had the pink one since christmas and bored of it already. Not really worth the money, not that it is expensive but there are better phones than this one. The battery doesn’t really last that long if you play loads of songs on it. And the volume only goes up to 14 and thats not very loud. It saves 200 messages to the phone and 20 to the sim.

  27. Allan says:

    Hey guys,
    can someone pls tell me how do you receive calls with the swivel closed or do u have to swivel it open to receive calls?

  28. Carly says:

  30. Leeanne says:

    I am getting this phone tommorow – it looks fab. Have got the LG chocolate at the moment and have only had it a few months – really not been the best of phones…seen someone in university library the other day with this phone and thought – I HAVE TO HAVE IT!!! It just looks sooooo funky…I’ll keep you posted on how easy it is to use; im sure the two key thing will take a little bit of getting used to but hey, it wasnt so long ago texting was hardly used and it used to take ages to send a text – im sure itl be easily picked up….: -)

  31. Big John says:

    Got Mine in russia , open to all networks for around 200 pounds. cool thing is it fits in your cigarette box when its half full

    so it spot on only one thing to fit into my shirt on a night out

  32. Paul says:

    You can get this phone at Phones 4 U. I ordered me this phone yesterday. The total price I had to pay for the phone and 10 airtime is £119. I think the phone looks cool. I can’t wait until mine comes through the post. I will post another comment when I test the phone. So far I would give the phone 8 out of 10 for looks.


  33. Paul says:

    I have had the white version of this phone and it is Ace. It just fits in to my pocket. The looks are cool I think it might the smallest phone in England too. Overall Out of 5 I think the phone scores 4.5 for looks and easy use of all the menus. Samsung have done themselves proud.


  34. marie says:

  41. I have to say clearly that if anybody here is thinking of buying or selling between each other then you do this at your own risk.

    In no way are we responsible for you buying or selling from other readers.

    I wish to say thankyou for coming to Phones Review and I hope you continue to do so.
