The Samsung M2310 mobile phone was unveiled in June 2009 and made available to the public in August 2009. It is no longer for sale, though, as it has been withdrawn.
Design and Display
The Samsung M2310 is small and light in size, weighing only 84.7 grammes and measuring 93 x 45 x 17.6 mm. It is useful for daily use because it is simple to handle and move around with. For network access, it also has a standard mini-SIM card port.
With a resolution of 176 x 220 pixels and a pixel density of roughly 141 per inch, the Samsung M2310’s display is rather modest at 2.0 inches. The display can display up to 256K colours; therefore, colour reproduction should be adequate. An external 1.1-inch CSTN display with a 96×96-pixel resolution is included with the phone. The display’s functionality may not be as strong as that of modern smartphones, but it was adequate for doing everyday chores like placing calls, sending texts, and viewing simple graphics.
A single, low-quality VGA camera, which can take photos and videos with a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels, is included with the Samsung M2310. The picture quality is fairly subpar because the camera lacks extra capabilities like focusing or an LED flash. Given the VGA resolution of the camera, the phone can also record videos, though the quality is probably going to be subpar.
The Samsung M2310 contains a specific microSDHC card slot that enables the user to increase the phone’s storage capacity. The phone includes the ability to record calls and can keep up to 1000 contacts using the photo call feature. The phone includes a modest 9MB of internal storage, which is adequate for basic usage and storing necessary phone services like messages and contacts.
Sound and Features
The Samsung M2310 has a loudspeaker and a 3.5mm socket that you can use to connect headphones too, so you can listen to music or take calls privately. The phone also contains specific music keys, which are useful if you want to access your music player and manage your music playback without having to go through menus. With this capability, you can enjoy portable listening to your favourite songs.
For wireless data transfer and connection to compatible devices like headsets and speakers, the Samsung M2310 offers Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP support. The phone also features a microUSB 2.0 connector for data transfer and charging. A stereo FM radio with RDS (Radio Data System) capability, which shows details about the station being played, is also included with the M2310. FM radio broadcasts can also be recorded on the phone. The phone cannot connect to Wi-Fi networks or use location-based services because it lacks WLAN and GPS capabilities.
A number of features on the Samsung M2310 offer a positive user experience. Users can send and receive emails, MMS messages, and SMS messages. It has a WAP 2.0 browser that enables internet access. The device has a selection of pre-installed games, and more may be downloaded. The phone runs MIDP 2.0 applications and supports Java.
The built-in Auto EQ automated equaliser of the M2310 modifies the sound to match the type of music being played. The song playing in the background can be recognised by users using the Find Music recognition tool. The phone is compatible with a number of audio file types, including MP3, e-AAC+, and WMA. Users are able to play MP4 and 3GP videos.
A detachable Li-Ion 800 mAh battery powers the Samsung M2310 and offers up to 350 hours of standby time and 7 hours and 30 minutes of talk time. In the event of a problem or poor battery life, the battery may be readily taken out and replaced. There are two colour options for the phone: blue and red. The phone cost around 60 euros when it was first released in 2009.
