It has a touchscreen design similar to the B5310 CorbyPro. However, it lacks a hardware keypad which is a major drawback. The touchscreen employs a user-friendly interface with well-organized menu icons. However, the touchscreen is not responsive and often lags behind when navigating the phone. For a young person who has just touched the touchscreen, it may take time to get used to the touchscreen. It has a widget feature similar to the B5310 CorbyPro, a sidebar useful widget that can be dragged and dropped on the homescreen. Another notable feature is that it has a hot-swappable microSD slot accessible on the side panel opposite the CorbyPro.

Judgment:

The Samsung S5620 Monte is the remote cousin of the Samsung CorbyPro and has many similarities in terms of interface and features. However, it lacks a hardware keypad, but incorporates a capacitive touchscreen instead of a resistor unlike the Corbipro. It is a fairly average performer in capturing captured photo and video quality. He is a decent performer with a score of 8 out of 10 in the loudspeaker test. It had consistent results throughout the signal reception and call clarity tests. So, it envisions the potential of a good mid-end phone with a decent camera and a good music player at an affordable price.
