On first looking into the Samsung Haven, you may be turned off by the box-like build. With a mid-look somewhere lingering between the classy PCD CDM8635 and the calculator-like Just5 J509, the Samsung Haven focuses more on functionality. Although it cannot be out right discarded that the Haven is unconventionally big for a flip-style phone.
Measuring 3.92 x 2 x 0.72 inches and weighing 3.49 ounces, the Haven is quite handy. To make the grip better, the phone is slightly grooved on the sides and there are indented spines that makes it easier to flip open the phone. The designers at Samsung have placed the Micro-USB port on the phone’s right spine, whereas the volume rocker, the 2.5 mm headset and headphone jack are placed on the left spine.
The Haven packs in a 1.07 inch secondary display on the external flip cover that displays the time in large fonts. This secondary display also displays the signal strength and the battery meter. Also, this display can be lit up without having to flip open the phone itself by simply doing a press and hold of the volume rocker. The interior of the phone is hued in muted black while the exteriors are adorned with striped charcoal gray.
The internal display of the Samsung Haven is a 176 x 220 pixel bright display, measuring 2.2 inches. This resolution makes the images and the texts a little pixelated around the edges. However, the colorful display (supporting around 65,000 colors) is further complemented by a large font, which can be enlarged even more clearly to see the displayed date, time and phone number.
