New Samsung Memoir T929 camera phone

Samsung Memoir T929 is an 8-megapixel camera phone that is provided by T-Mobile USA for a price of $249.99.

The design of the Samsung Memoir underlines that there is something shared between mobile phone and camera.

We don’t know whether the Memoir is a camera or a phone, but its looks elegant for sure. The size of the phone compiles 4.2 inches long by 2.1 inches wide by 0.6 inch thick. A 2.6-inch display takes the entire front surface of the phone. It supports 62,000 colors and the images look vibrant and sharp.

On the back there is the 8-megapixel-camera lens with a built-in retractable lens cover. A Xenon flash is also placed there. Unluckily there is no self-portrait mirror.

For texting there is a virtual QWERTY keyboard when you rotate your handset in landscape mode. The keyboard is spacious providing accurate typing.

The basic features of the Samsung Memoir are a phone book for 2,000 contacts, speakerphone, calendar, world clock, alarm, organizer, notepad, currency and unit converter. The higher features include stereo Bluetooth, GPS support, music player, a full HTML browser, voice command, and Web-based e-mail.

Surely, the camera in the Samsung Memoir is the main feature though the phone is greatly enhanced in all positions.

The 8-megapixel camera can shoot in seven resolutions, from 3,264×2,448 to 320×240. You can use the following settings: white balance presets, color effects, 8x digital zoom, three quality settings, a mosaic-shot mode and nine fun frames.

There are 12 preset scene settings for different conditions, for example, portrait, sports, landscape, beach, sunset, indoor, backlight, and others. There is a possibility to record videos in two resolutions (640×480 and 320×240) and in 3 modes: picture message mode, slow-motion video mode and normal mode. The quality of photos is indescribable. We’ve hardly ever seen such sharp photos with such accurate hues and absence of noise.

Among the pluses of the Samsung Memoir one can name its top-notch design that makes the Memoir look a real camera. Accordingly, the quality of photos is admirable. The opportunity to upload the photos taken directly to online sharing sites is exiting. And in general, the performance of the Memoir is great.

The absence of Wi-Fi is disappointing taking into consideration the Samsung Memoir’s Web browser of not an excellent quality. A touch screen is a bit slow.

The price that you probably give for this mobile phone is feasible as you pay for cool camera of a high performance.
