Samsung SGH-800 is a new clamshell phone, similar in design to Motorola StarTac 70/80/90/X/v3688 series handsets.
However, this one is more robust and can be taken anywhere you want. It is an excellent companion for travelers.
The SGH-800 comes with a large bright hi-res screen and shortcut keys for most frequently used functions.
Despite its positive sides, the phone is obviously overpriced.
For $598 you can easily get a better handset, such as Nokia 7110, an Ericsson R320, or the latest Siemens S35i.
