Fit for purpose?

The processor is 600MHz, way behind the 1GHz we expect from Samsung’s higher end single core Androids. While the relatively low power might seem fitting for the low-end screen, the Fit still seemed to struggle in general use, taking its time when switching between apps and delivering an unnervingly jerky performance during some busier games.

The 5Mp camera turned out a good deal better than expected

The Android browser is decent enough, though this version doesn’t have Flash support (the processor would have struggled to handle streaming video anyway). Pinch to zoom functionality is there though, and there’s fairly fast connectivity via 3G or Wi-Fi.

The 5Mp camera really isn’t bad at all, certainly standing up against the similarly specced snappers on much more expensive phones (for shame, HTC). Features include autofocus, continuous shot (up to nine if you hold the shutter button down), panorama shot, smile shot and macro mode. Picture quality is good with sharp edges and generally accurate colour balance.
