Samsung Solid Immerse review: Battery life and connectivity

Samsung solid immerse

Battery life ought to be pretty good on a handset with such a small screen, but the 1300mAh battery seemed to struggle. After about six hours of use, including some camera and internet access, it decided to give us a battery low warning.

We're inclined to think it might not last us through a weekend on the fells, which is a worry for a phone that is supposed to be able to accompany us into places where there are no mains power chargers.

As noted previously, the network connection is 3G but not HSDPA, and there's no Wi-Fi connectivity.

GPS is on board and there's a direction-sensing compass too, though to be frank we'd rather rely on a physical compass.
