The Samsung B3310 phone has a strange design, with its numeric keys placed alongside its screen. There are people who even liken the configuration of the keys to teeth, especially when the phone is held sideways. The design admittedly requires a lot of time to get used to. Most left handed individuals find the design more to their liking, as typing text in here is easier. But right handed individuals may find it more difficult to use this phone since the hand gets in the way of the screen as you press the buttons. Likewise, you need to have a long thumb to reach the upper keys of this phone.
The full QWERTY keyboard slides open to align with the numeric keypad. Samsung gets a lot of rave reviews for the comfortable and easy to use keypad, however, which more or less makes up for the weird design of the phone. The keypads are responsive, with a click that sounds off every time a key is pressed.
The phone features simple menu navigation, which makes it easier for users to find the function they are looking for. The home screen displays a quick access bar for six functions - messaging, message inbox, music, alarm, organizer, and social networking apps. The user has the option of customizing the quick menu option, adding or deleting apps according to their preferences. Most critics have bashed Samsung for not adding “Camera" to the default settings, but to be fair, the full customizable quick access menu can be configured to add a camera launch control. The navigation shortcuts available on this phone can be customized according to the preference of the user.
