Samsung Corby II is a low level phone released back in 2011, which counts with a 2 MP back facing camera and a 3.1-inches screen. That's all? No, it's only the beginning of a much deeper review.

This phone has a little 26,62 MB internal memory, which could be adequate for some users considering that it also has a slot for an external memory card to store songs, pictures and videos and even some apps that allow being installed in the external memory.

This cellphone is for sale in 3 different color options, pink, yellow and white. This cellphone is much lighter than what you expect from a device like this. The Samsung Corby II is very thin and practical, although it's not as slim as many other phones in the market, with a thickness of 0.46". This phone isn't a very compact device, taking into consideration it is 4.33 inches long,but it just packs a 3.1 inches display.

This phone is equipped with only a 2 MP back-facing camera. It is also able to shoot videos in 320x240 (QVGA) at 30 frames per second. Additionally, this device's camera also includes smile detection shooting.

Samsung designed this cellphone with a poor 3.1" display, and a 320 x 240 (QVGA) resolution, giving this phone a not-so-good graphic quality. Its display uses TFT capacitive technology, but it can't detect multi touch gestures.

This phone provides WiFi connectivity (although it can't be provided to other devices as a mobile hotspot) or 3G connection type, supported by EDGE technologies. This cellphone uses a SIM card to use GSM services.

This phone counts with a 1000 mAh small Li-Ion battery providing this cellphone with a below average battery duration. Samsung says this cellphone has a 9.5 hours talk time and a 620 hours stand by time.

Samsung is offering the Samsung Corby II for 79 dollars, which is expensive for this type of phone.
