The Samsung SGH-E250 is a mobile phone that was introduced in 2006 as an entry level version of the Samsung D900 (The ULTRA edition 12.9) mobile. The E250 has very similar features to the D900, but the screen resolution is roughly half of that of the D900 and the camera is only 0.3MP compared to the D900's 3MP camera.

In 2009, Samsung Electronics also introduced the SGH-E250i, a dual band variant version of the SGH-E250, for GSM 900 and 1800 MHz networks. The Samsung SGH-E250i, which has the same design of the E250, has an 800 mAh battery[1] instead of E250's 750 mAh[2] and features VGA camera, 2.0" display, Bluetooth, MP3 player, and FM radio with recording. But, it has some visual improvements in the software along with background music playback and standard MP3 ringtones compared to the SGH-E250.

Performance[edit]

The E250, with its 10MB internal Flash storage space, are expandable via Micro SD Card. Also, the E250 is made with an ARM9-230 MHz processor, allowing for very fast processing. It cannot perform multitasking, and the media player cannot be minimized. However, the radio can be used whilst performing other tasks. Games and applications must be installed on the phone through the stock web browser by navigating to the respective sites which contains applications for the phone. They cannot be installed by any other method. The phone also does not support Java 3D. But, some variants do support it experimentally by entering the following code: *#52828378#.

Design[edit]

The design is very similar to the D900, with the exception of the dimensions of the phone body and battery, although screen size remains the same. The Samsung SGH-E250 takes the Type AB463446BU battery, which is interchangeable with SAMSUNG E1080 models, amongst others. The D900 body is 2mm wider, allowing a larger MENU key, 1mm thinner and takes a shorter, but wider, less popular Type AB50344CE battery. The SGH-E250 phone is built as a slide-out phone, where the TALK, END, MENU and directional pad are on the top half. The bottom half, which slides out, holds the number keys. This classic modern phone is available in black, silver, pink, lilac and in crystal.
