Samsung Transform Ultra Review
By Jo Wilkes on December 9th, 2011For many people there is nothing better than owning a smart phone. However the word ‘smart phone’ often goes hand in hand with the word ‘expensive’. If this sounds familiar you’ll no doubt be trying to do the impossible and find a cost effective model that still offers plenty of power under the hood. Luckily the Samsung Transform Ultra offers a nice array of features that will satisfy most of those looking to spend as little as possible on their next smart phone.
Measuring 14mm thick, the Samsung Transform Ultra comes in at a healthy 116mm high by 61mm wide. It also features a QWERTY keyboard that slides out from one side of the phone, offering those who want a proper keyboard the ability to use one on a regular basis. However you get the best of both worlds here because the phone also boasts a touch screen. It measures 3.5 inches diagonally with 320 by 480 pixels. This isn’t the best resolution you could get but for a cheaper mobile phone it more than makes the grade.
Many people choose their smart phone based on the processor and the amount of RAM provided. The more you have the faster your phone will be, no matter what you ask of it. The Samsung Transform Ultra provides you with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and 512MB of RAM. Some might prefer more RAM than this gives but it goes well with the processor so it shouldn’t present you with too many issues.
The phone has the Android Gingerbread platform installed. This opens the door to thousands upon thousands of apps so the phone is more than able to be personalised to anyone’s desire. Users can also personalise the interface on the phone, giving it another nice edge to persuade lookers to become buyers.
Of course no smart phone would be complete without a camera of some kind on board, and the Samsung Transform Ultra actually provides you with two. Video chat has clearly been thought of thanks to the front facing camera, but you also get a three megapixel camera facing the other way. You may not use both of them all the time but it’s certainly good to know they’re there.
Whatever you look for in a budget smart phone, the Samsung Transform Ultra certainly packs in a lot for the money. And since the battery is more impressive than many other more expensive phones too, there are few reasons not to consider making a purchase.
