not worth the money
I bought this Samsung Guru 1200 few days back, for my mom who likes phones with simple basic features. I thought the phone would be suitable for her but after using for few days, am on the market again searching for another phone. The phone has a very low initial ringtone, so sometimes you don’t even know when the phone is ringing. The ringtones are inaudible, unclear and unpleasant. The keypad is not comfortable to use as it is too stiff. The phone’s display is too small for an aged people who will need a magnifying glass, if you want to see what is happening in your phone. The phone also comes with a custom charger pin, so you need to always carry the charger wherever you go. And I wish the phone has FM with added features for customizing the phone’s display.
very good phone for cheap
I bought this Samsung Guru 1200 few months back, and am really glad that I did. This phone is awesome with loaded basic features like flash-light integration, alpha-numeric keypad, anti-dust keypad and lots more. The phone’s battery life is amazing, am an average caller but I can use this phone for 2 to 3 days without charging. The phone is fast and responsive, compact and sturdy and it offers call clarity and clear sound.
not upto the mark
Bought this simple basic featured phone for my mom few days back, but disappointed with some features. The ringtones of this phone are really irritating and we cannot put new third party ringtones, so we are stuck with the default tones which is really frustrating. The call clarity is not that good, sometimes we don’t even know what is being said from the other end. The keypad is too stiff and the phone’s display is too small. The Samsung Guru 1200 seems to deliver only for the half-crazed Samsung customers.
old is gold
Went back to the retro years with the Samsung 1200. I had lost my iPhone few weeks back and as I was looking for a cheap and useable phone, I saw this Samsung 1200. The thoughts before I bought it was that this is just for temporary until I bought a real-deal phone again. But as I start using this phone, I was surprise with its features, and it has been at least a month now but I am still using this phone without even thinking of buying another phone. This lightweight phone has an anti-dust keypad which does not get stuck or does not get spoilt either. The alpha numeric keypad is much better than those smartphones for typing messages. The phone does not get spoilt even when you throw or drop it. The battery life is awesome as you can use the phone for 2 to 3 days without charging. I am an average caller but the battery just remain active and it charges up very fast. This basic features with bright displays phone is the real deal, if you want a simple phone with loaded features at a cheap price.
