Introduction

Samsung Guru 1205 is a low cost handset by Samsung in Guru series that are famous for their robust built and long lasting battery that makes them adaptable in the market and are doing well. With a candy bar form factor, this device has a small screen with an alphanumeric keypad below it that is rubberish in touch and the whole body is made up of plastic that provides it a sturdy look. It is the FM radio version of Samsung Guru E1200 but comes with single SIM support and comes only in black color. This single SIM handset is designed to work on GSM network, and support 2G, WAP connectivity options and it is capable of SIM-free menu access and has uTrack. This basic handset from Samsung come loaded with Samsung’s own proprietary OS. Nothing too great about it but it comes with simple features and is easy to use. The unique scalloped surface back design provides better grip and slim and compact dimensions make it easy to hold and carry, providing a nice, comfortable grip. New rubber anti-dust keypad is both designed for utmost usability and offers a dust-resistance surface that keeps your handset clean and as good as new. The superior 5-way navigation key centralizes all the most popular functions on the phone into one convenient place, easy to control and use. You’ll revel at how easy it is to access your important functions including call history and phone contacts with a single press of one button and it is outfitted with MP3 ringtones for full and nice-sounding tones that alert you to incoming calls and messages. The torch light is an extremely handy and portable built in mini-flashlight which is an invaluable safety feature that can light your way out from a tight dark spot and is thus useful when you least expect it and that too, at a very reasonable price.

Samsung Guru 1205 comes in a small size of 109.5 mm x 45.5 mm x 12.8 mm and is only 65.1 grams in weight and the credit to its light weight goes to its plastic body that enables the user to use it for a ling time without paining your palm.

Operating system and UI

The screen of Samsung Guru 1205 is not a touch screen that is famous now-days and is also not very large in size to provide you a full view but with such an affordable price, one cannot expect the features of a smartphone in this mini basic phone. It carries a 1.52 inch TFT display that provides a screen resolution of 128 x 128 pixels along with 65K color depth. The screen provides a crisp and clear display that is enough to have a nice view of the screen and that makes it pretty readable. The OS on which this handset runs is Samsung's own proprietary OS and the improved user interface with improved layout is easy to navigate and lets you move from screen to screen seamlessly. Though there is no QWERTY keypad available on this handset but the older alpha numeric keypad is easier to type with and you can give various commands with it without paining your fingers and the T9 dictionary prevents you from writing full text, as this feature will provide the predicted word, before you type it completely. It is a simple handset that is meant for making and receiving calls with sending and receiving messages along with some good features.

Not so Good
by Mallajeet Sonowal on 2013-01-22

The Cons are:
1. The mobile torch does not emit continuous light.
2. Battery backup is generally 2 days which is really really a big dissatisfaction. I blame this for the 800mah battery.
