The accolades do not stop at its stature as the world’s slimmest phone. Once the amazement of the Samsung X820’s astonishing 6.9mm svelte figure sinks in, you’ll appreciate its durable and lightweight grip, thanks to its fibreglass-infused plastic body. Dressed in matte black with a silver chrome highlight on the top, its sleek styling expresses subtle sophistication to complement the discerning urbanite’s ensemble.

Samsung’s groundbreaking X820 expresses Samsung’s devotion to creating the slimmest product for the market today. Weighing only 66 grams with slender 6.9mm thinness, the lightweight X820 is today’s modern method to stay connected. The X820 balances slim elegance with a functional keypad and finishes with a beautifully beveled cut for a natural grip. The fiberglass-infused plastic is used to increase extraordinary durability while keeping it lightweight. The X820 is the true complement to today’s active consumers as it becomes one with the users in their wallets, shirt pockets, or a pair of jeans for mobility in style.

Underneath its protective outer shell, the X820’s a wealth of features are compressed into the 6.9mm thinness using the Smart Surface Mounting Technology (SSMT). Capture those bright smiles and specials moments using the 2 megapixel camera or pull of a great presentation with the document viewer and TV-output function. Maximize the visual experience with the horizontal widescreen and navigate all of these features and more with a simple and user-friendly interface.

When it comes to viewing photos, videos or documents, the phone’s 1.9” 262K colour QVGA TFT-LCD wide landscape view maximises your visual experience. If you need to view them on a larger scale, the Direct TV-output+ connects the phone to a larger screen. And when you’re in the air, switch to the Offline Mode to access your phone’s functions without disrupting the plane’s transmission signals.

Great classic

November 11, 2013

I have used this phone for about 8 years now. It still looks great and functions as it should. Its battery is still going strong (I do not have it on day and night).

And what's nice is that this prehistoric phone is STILL the thinnest phone in the world (as far as I know) !!!
