Editor's Review of the S5610 Utopia

Reviewed by on 5th March 2012

Given its classic candybar styling and traditional features, you make thing Samsung's S5160 Utopia is just another 'cheap' dumb phone. However, the handset's specs may just surprise you.

If you struggle to get to grips with touchscreens and BlackBerry keypads, you'll be pleased to hear that the Samsung Utopia touts a traditional 9-key alphanumeric keypad, paired with a decent 2.4-inch (240 x 320) colour display, which showcases Samsung's simplified feature phone interface. These come housed within the phone's skinny 12mm-thick metal clad casing, which makes the phone look much more expensive than it actually is.

When it comes to 'basic' phones, you usually expect to find little more than a built-in flashlight and a selection of Java-based games. However, the Samsung S5610 comes rocking a decent 5 megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash, alongside a front-facing camera for video-calling. Thanks to the handset's included 3G and WiFi connectivity, you can easily share snapshots on the internet too. The onboard browser, although cramped, makes accessing Facebook and Twitter fairly easy, and there's also a pre-loaded email application.

The phone's multimedia smarts don't stop there. Potential adopters can also look forward to an FM radio with RDS, a built-in music and video player, and a bunch of pre-loaded games. There's also up to 32GB of expandable storage - a feature we're not used to seeing on affordable handsets.

If you're after a phone with smartphone functionality but without the complicated touchscreen, the Samsung S5610 - especially given its reasonable price-tag - could well be the perfect handset. However, those of you addicted to browsing the web, may struggle to cope with the compact display.
