Compare E1130 Deals
The Samsung E1130 is a chunky little monoblock phone designed to be a spare or replacement handset – or possibly as a first phone. It has few frills but a robust, classic exterior and strong battery life. The “lack” of functionality is, in fact, its strength, reflected in its aggressive pricing.
At 107 x 45 x 13 mm, weighing only 81g, the E1130 is compact but strong in the palm. Everything is designed to be practical and minimalist, such as the 1.52-inch CSTN screen with a 128 x 128 pixel resolution which delivers a surprisingly crisp image. It makes calls, it sends/receives texts – job done.
It is a dual-band GSM phone and the utilities include a vibration alert, speakerphone (hands-free communication) and the capacity for MP3 ringtones, so that any MP3 file you input can be your ringtone. The phone book holds up to 500 records and it retains call records of the last 20 dialled, received and missed. It has a voice memo facility and personal organiser and an FM radio, though no music player.
Another excellent reason to choose the E1130 is if the environment you’ll use it in has its challenges: the phone is IP54 certified as dust and "water jet" resistant (so working in a car wash, perhaps?) and there is an in-built flashlight.
Battery life is excellent, rated at 10 hours’ talk time or 670 hours on standby from a full charge.
