The name ‘Samsung C3050’ may not mean much to you anymore. The Korean brand released this device in 2009 and was a slider phone that you could slide open. The phone was colored in white, pink or black and had an aluminum-looking keypad under the screen.

The Samsung C3050 was equipped with a 2.0 inch display with a resolution of 160 x 120 pixels. In addition, the phone offered a simple 0.3 megapixel VGA camera. The quality was (obviously) nothing to write home about.

Samsung also provided the phone with an FM radio with RDS, Bluetooth 2.0 and 20MB of storage space. Fortunately, you could expand that with a memory card. The C3050 had an 800 mAh battery. Not all users were equally positive about this. Especially in standby, the battery would drain relatively quickly.

The Samsung C3050 was released in the Netherlands for an amount of around 90 euros. Later he could be found for a few tens less in prepaid packages from various providers.
