Samsung Rex 60


Another one of Samsung’s successful attempts to provide with good feature phones has seen life and come out on top. The Samsung Rex 60 is a great feature phone to have. The main UI is TouchWiz but it does not run on Android. Samsung Rex 60 is a dual sim feature phone with great specs for a low price range. It is not visually stunning, just like other phones of the same price range. On paper it really is outstanding when you put it up against the best of the feature phones.

Just like I said earlier, nothing too fancy, nothing too attractive- its just simple. Curved at the corners and a little curved at the back. Unlike the other feature phones of this class, it is a touchscreen phone. The material of the phone seems to have missed its mark. But then, its Samsung, not best known for built and design. The edges are covered with this cheap silvery plastic which completely turns me off.


Samsung Rex 60 Camera
So the camera is quiet basic. It is a 1.2 MP camera which takes photographs in the resolution of 280 x 1024 pixels. There is no secondary camera support, not like we expected it out of a 4,000 INR phone. It does record video- in VGA quality. It just does an acceptable job on image capturing. Not like this phone was supposed to be high on camera specs anyway.

Memory and Data

It comes with just 30MB internal storage but we are sure retailers will be offering you 1-2GB microSD card along with it. It is expandable to up to 16GB by the same. Fair enough. To share your files and sync them you get support of v3.0 bluetooth and mircoUSB slot. You do not have NFC and no 3G. Internet data can only be streamed via 2G GPRS and EDGE. Sadly no wifi too, forget hotspots.


There is no Android cranking the phone up. It is not a smartphone, just a mere feature phone. It runs on usual Java and UI- toucwiz, Samsung’s own. You get general apps from the Samsung Store. For social networking, you would have to use your mobile data as you do not have wifi enabled on this phone. The games are well quiet basic. Music experience is amazing. Something that is universal, you gotta have a good music player for phones irrespective of its cost. They also give you the feature of FM playback along with recording! Cool!


Samsung Rex 60
For a feature phone it has a higher ppi at 143 ppi density on a 2.8 inch screen. Well, the display is too small though. The display has 65K colours and not 256K or 16 million. It is a TFT Capacitive touchscreen display. Not ideal for a lot of work but good enough.

Final Thoughts

For the common man this phone is quiet nice. They would not want anything more. It meets basic needs of your mobile phone life for a common man. It also has a great battery life. Just everything that a basic phone needs, its there. Though small, yet an amazing display. We Indians love our radio, so let be, buy the phone.
