Expert Review of Samsung Champ 2 C3330
Samsung Champ 2 C3330 shows how the company continuous to evolve as and keeps on changing the devices with upgrades whenever they sense the need.

Samsung Champ 2 C3330 comes with a new design which is a significant facelift from the previous round designs the device featured. It has a 2.4 inch screen that gives a resolution of 240 by 320 pixels and whereas the exterior of the device has a more plasticky feel to it. The internal memory of the device is very small with 20 MB whereas there is no memory card that comes included in the device. There is a microSD card slot that gives the user a 16 GB memory expansion capacity. Internet is not the quickest and there is no Wi-Fi as well but it is still manageable. The camera is better than what its previous version offered in terms of the quality of the pictures produced. Video recording quality could be better though. As far as the other specs are concerned, there is practically no evolution from Champ to Champ 2 which is baffling. The device is available in various colors and has a music player and a video player which is more or less same in terms of sound quality it offers. FM radio with FM radio recording is provided while the battery of 1000 mAh does seem a little on the lower end. The talk time and the standby time though are pretty solid with 14 hours and 50 minutes and up to 760 hours respectively.
