The Samsung Metro 313 is one of the best basic phone (or feature phone, as it is popularly called) made by Samsung Mobile. And though this isn’t the first basic phone made by the phone manufacturer, the Metro B313E just happens to be the best choice of device when considering purchasing a basic or feature phone. So what is the Samsung Metro 313 price?
Samsung happens to manufacture quite a number of smartphones that can be arguably referred to as the best smartphones in the market at the moment, therefore, nothing less is expected from their basic phones as well. In that vein, let’s have a peek at the Samsung Metro B313E.
Samsung Metro 313
DESIGN & DISPLAY
The Samsung Metro B313E is a very petite and compact device. The rectangular feature phone is very light in the hands as it weighs only 74 grams. The thinness of the device can also be affirmed in its 112.7x 46.4x 13.1mm dimension. With this size, the palm of an average adult can almost cover the entire body of this device.
The Samsung Metro B313E is available in 3 colour options; Black, White and Gold editions. The frontal part boasts of very soft keypads and a 2.0-inch screen which has a resolution of 128 x 160 pixels. The 2.0-inch screen is a TFT display which provides more brightness and contrast than the usual LCD display.
PROCESSOR & STORAGE
Being a basic phone, the Samsung Metro B313E is powered by a tiny and underdog Single-Core / Mono-core processor. The processor speed is pegged at 208MHz. Worry less about the processor speed because since the device won’t be running heavy apps or any external applications, the speed will be as fast as it comes.
There’s a minute 2MB internal storage space to keeps media and other files. However, there is a micro SD card slot underneath the battery that allow storage expansion of up to 16GB. That’s definitely enough room to keep your favourite music or audio. The Samsung Metro B313E comes pre-installed with Bluetooth to enable ease in transferring your songs to and from the device.
You would agree with me that cameras are not something you come across on every feature phone. Only a tiny percentage of phone manufacturer embed cameras unto their feature phones and Samsung happens to be one. The Samsung Metro B313E comes with a VGA camera at the rear. VGA cameras are tagged at 0.3 megapixels and have a resolution of 640×480 pixels.
There’s no flashlight support (and I’m pretty sure no one’s expecting that) as the camera is flanked to the right by the loud speaker grill.
The Samsung Metro B313E is powered by a huge 1,000mAh Li – Ion battery pack. This kind of battery size is not what you get to see on the everyday feature phone. This battery will provide a talk-time of 720 minutes and even a longer standby duration.
