Samsung have recently announced their new budget line of sub-£50 handsets, the latest addition comes the Samsung E2121 that is rather unspectacular, but actually revels in being spectacularly unspectacular.
By this, I don’t mean it is a bad handset at all, and while it won’t challenge the iPhone or Samsung Galaxy S, the E2121 is actually rather commendable for the amount of features you get, especially as it is priced at just £25 on pay-as-you-go. A sim-free version is also available for around £50.
Coming along to the phone’s aesthetics, it is not exactly the most beautiful phone in the market, but there is something about it that makes it appealing. The central music button sits nicely just under the screen that politely invites you to play some music but we all know that it is not going to sound all that great.
Still, for those of you who want to start small and want music functionality, the E2121 gives you the very basics for this, but does it very well. You can get MicroSD card support up to 2GB, but the only rather disappointing thing about this whole charade is that it lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack.
In conclusion, other than the music feature that is somewhat blunted by the lack of a headphone jack you still get bang for your buck with a VGA camera, online support (via GPRS), and Bluetooth support. It is a long shot from any typical mobile phone you can get these days but if you are shopping on budget this could be right up your street.
