The Samsung Contour features an address book that can store up to a thousand contacts. Each entry can have multiple phone numbers and email addresses. Contacts can also be customized into caller groups or assigned with any one of the 22 preinstalled polyphonic ringtones. Contacts may also be assigned with a photo caller ID.
The typical phone features are integrated into this phone. These include text messaging, Bluetooth, alarm clock, memo pad, calendar, world clock, stopwatch, calculator, and unit converter. There are bundled add-ons providing additional functionality to the Contour like applications for Web e-mail and instant messaging, voice commands and contact back-up, as well as social networking and navigation. These are very basic apps that should be good enough for a regular mobile phone user.
The device is equipped with a 1.3 megapixel camera just like most budget phones have these days. The camera is capable of capturing photos in three different resolutions from a minimum of 128x96 pixels to a maximum of 640x480 pixels. The camera surprisingly has other settings like color effects, night mode, white balance, shooting modes, image quality, and self timer. Photos taken using the camera can be sent as a picture message, or through Bluetooth. Of course, they can also be stored and used as a wallpaper and caller photo ID. The problem is that it has minimal internal storage of 55MB, and there are no expansion slots for microSD cards to expand this storage. As such, users have to make do with the minimal memory space of this device.
