Americans are soon going to be blessed by another cheap yet powerful 3G phone from Samsung, dubbed as Samsung U380 Brightside. Samsung U380 Brightside is the latest smartphone announced by Samsung but it will only be available at the Verizon stores. Samsung U380 Brightside has got not too much attractive features but what’s surprising is it supports the 3G network, CDMA. This phone supports 3G on CDMA2000 1xEV-DO network. The dimensions of this phone are 111 x 60 x 14 mm and the weight is 122grams.The phone has even got a QWERTY keypad. The phone has got a TFT touchscreen with 256K Color support. The screen size is fairly low, just 3.1inch with the pixel density of 129ppi. The phone has even got a 3.5mm Jack. And other big features are discussed in details below –

Camera Quality

Camera quality of this phone isn’t too good but considering its other features, camera seems quite good. Samsung U380 Brightside is having a 3.15MP primary camera with video recording capability too. There is no secondary camera in this phone. 


Memory of Samsung U380 Brightside too is bit less, I must say, below expected. Samsung U380 Brightside is having 256MB internal memory with 128MB RAM. The expandable memory though of the phone is 32GB. This phone supports call records and phonebook.

Data Connectivity

This phone, as I have mentioned, supports 3G network on CDMA. Other features like GPRS, EDGE are missing in this phone. This phone has Bluetooth v2.1 which is getting older now. This phone also supports microUSB v2.0. Basic feature like Wi-Fi too is missing in this phone. 


Battery is the only thing in this smartphone which impressed me a bit. Samsung U380 Brightside is having a Li-Po 1000 mAh battery which keeps it running for 350hours on standby and 6hours 30mins on talk-time. Battery plays an important role when you have to go on trips, office meetings or places where you don’t get in contact with electricity plugs a lot. 


Well, the price of this phone is still not announced officially but we are expecting it to be too low. The phone is placed in the catalog where phones like Nokia C2-02 etc are placed,  so we have guessed the price of Samsung U380 Brightside to be somewhere around Rs.4,000 to Rs.5,000.
