TP's finally gotten hold of the Samsung Champ variant that's currently available in the Philippines.
Check out Samsung Champ C3303K:
Samsung Champ C3303K brings the high-end look to the entry level category. Holding the phone in the hand brings to light the phone's curved back case and ergonomic finesse. Beautiful to behold and comfortable to use, Champ effectively combines style and portability at a very affordable price point.
Users will be happy to learn that despite its low price tag -- with an SRP of only around Php 5,000, Samsung Champ nonetheless offers a rich set of multi-media features. The phone provides an immersive music experience with its stereo FM radio, 3D sound effects and a dual speaker system. With its long battery life, users can enjoy hours upon hours of multimedia use. Samsung Champ also supports Bluetooth connectivity and comes with a microSD card that supports up to 8GB of memory. The phone comes with a headset and travel adapter.
In true TechPinas tradition, let's do the panels:
Front panel shows the 2.4 inches resistive touchscreen. Below it are the hardware keys; At the middle, without any pretense of being the navigation key vs. other Samsung models, is the back button, on either sides, we have the call and drop knobs. Above the screen, we have the earpiece.
Below the hardware buttons, we can see the speaker and the mic pinhole.
Back panel shows nothing but the 1.3 MegaPixel camera with no flash...
... and the stylus that's neatly tucked in its slot on the upper left side of the phone, right above the camera.
Top panel shows the 3.5 mm audio jack and the microUSB port covered by this flimsy plastic flap.
Right panel has the screen lock button.
Left panel shows the volume rocker...
while there's nothing at the rear other than this very thin slot for removing the shiny plastic back case.
The name says it all. This phone is a true champ in the entry level full-touchscreen phone category. It looks sleek, offers a decent set of multimedia features and is, above all, very affordable.
If you're looking for a small touch phone for SMS or making calls that can also play music quite well, give Champ a test run at a Samsung Experience booth near you. You just might end up taking one home.
