Consumers recycling mobile phones for a qwerty-enabled smartphone may want to consider the thoughts of one writer this week.

In an article for Trusted Reviews, Niall Magennis looked at the Samsung C6625 Windows-based smartphone and explained that it could serve as a budget solution for some.

He said that although there were elements missing from the handset that buyers would be able to find on products like the HTC Snap and BlackBerry Curve 8900, the result is “a perfectly decent phone“.

“We like the C6625’s slim and light design, good battery life and attractive price tag,” he added, but noted the lack of Wi-Fi connectivity and a substandard camera “may be a deal breaker for many”.

The Samsung does boast a full qwerty keyboard, 2.6-inch widescreen display, onboard GPS and HSDPA support – and can be picked up sim-free with a price tag of around £150.

However, the South Korean manufacturer recently announced three new Windows-based smartphones in the Omnia range which may be more suited to those recycling used mobiles.
