Samsung E1080 belongs to the basic phone category
If you need a phone simply for texting or calling and you want it at an affordable price then the E1080 fits your needs perfectly.
This phone, despite being simple remains unparalleled in its category. The E1080 has a sturdy exterior, an excellent choice for mobile users who love the outdoors. This phone fits the demand of outdoor life and adventure.
What We Like
What we like about the E1080 handset is that it focuses on the core functions of a mobile phone and meets them. It does not pretend to offer beyond the essential functions of a basic phone. But this doesn’t mean that the E1080 isn’t at all powerful. It fulfils its role and delivers reliable results.
From the basic to its additional features the phone serves its purpose well. Its robust exterior envelopes the core functions of the phone, preserving its performance and life from the perils of being outdoors. If you don’t want something that’s flashy but ultimately fragile then this is the phone for you.
The phone remains true to the brand’s engineering design ingenuity. E1080 is a typical Samsung mobile phone that is compact, lightweight yet sturdy. It measures about 107mm (length) x 45mm (width) x 13mm (thick) and weighs just 64 grams.
Samsung E1080 also brings back the mobile tracking feature. Mobile phone tracking detects the current location or position of your handset regardless if it is moving or immobile. This feature would help you retrieve your mobile phone in case you lose it or someone steals it. What the tracker does is send an SMS alert to the programmed number as soon as anyone attempts to change the phone’s SIM.
When evaluating the E1080 for its features, you have to keep in mind that the phone belongs to the budget-friendly phone category. Therefore, there are certain things about it that would pale in comparison to higher-end, more expensive versions.
What We Don't Like
The thing with budget-friendly mobile phones is that they often have technology downgrades as well as exclude certain feature. The E1080 mobile phone is no exception.
What we do not like about the phone is that it does not have a camera which most phones seem to have these days and is also something that many people look for. The phone also lacks channels for connectivity such infrared, Bluetooth and a web connection.
Nonetheless, if all you really need is a phone that can survive all the stress, the rigors, and the pressure of being outdoors then the E1080 should. A phone you can rely upon for calling or sending SMS especially during emergencies and or as the need arises, this is what Samsung E1080 is.
Samsung E1080 is the phone for people who love the outdoors and live an adventurous life. Mobile phone users, who only need basic functions- such as calling and texting, will admire how this mobile phone performs under considerably difficult circumstances.
Its exterior might be less attractive than the Samsung E1170, its progeny, but in terms of durability, reliability, performance and affordability, E1080 can give any mobile phone a good run for their money.
