One look at Samsung Genio Touch, you will mistake it for Palm Pre, because of the 2.8" touchscreen and the rounded bottom with curved edges. The phone is also called the Samsung Corby outside UK. The Genio Touch follows an engaging, responsive UI, with updated social networks and of course an attractive made. The image quality is good as it displays 16M colors with 320x240 pixels resolution. The display is 2.8" but sometimes the characters and numbers lack definition.

Genio Touch's nice user interface seems to be a big achievement for such a bargained phone, as the model is relatively priced at £100. The TouchWiz interface allows you to copy widgets between the homepage and a toolbar on the screen's side. These widgets help you to explore social networking sites and notify you about it on a timely basis. Thus it gives you an iPhone-like experience, but is not that subtle.

The telephony quality is average, but it is more preferable to use with 3.5mm jack available for hands-free option. The messaging part is made a bit inconvenient as the model lacks the presence of a QWERTY keyboard, making T9 option difficult.

Connectivity is worth mentioning as it is a quad-band phone and supports EDGE. But web browsing is disappointing as there is no 3G and Wi-Fi access and you have to rely on GPRS or EDGE for data downloads, nor there is GPS chip present inside the phone. Though it supports full HTML options and multi web pages but the access is not swift.

Genio Touch's 2 megapixel camera with no auto-focus and only 1600x1200 pixel resolution, makes the picture quality and color accuracy poor.

With multimedia, photos and videos can be stored on a microSD card of up to 16GB size which is pretty huge. Music can be played with WMA, MP3, AAC, eAAc, and eAAC+ formats. The model also plays FM radio with the support of plugged-in headphones. The battery is of 960 mAh and runs finely for hours.
