Samsung SGH-Z130

The SGH-Z130 is modestly attractive with its two-tone colour scheme and tapering design. Despite being relatively small, it accomodates a roomy display which, with its rotating functionality, is the centerpiece of the unit.

Regardless of orentation, the SGH-Z130 proved highly responsive when carrying out all of its assigned tasks, including playing back video content. Still, the 1.3 MP camera of the device appeared to offer an above-par image sensor, although the viewfinder could benefit from a minor speed upgrade.

As for the keypad of the handset, this was fully adequate, and conveniently also included a blue backlight. Other features of the handset worth mentioning include support for Bluetooth, as well as 64-chord polyphonic ringtones and an audio player with support for MP3, AAC and AAC+. For both of the latter, audio quality was surprisingly good.
