Samsung has recently announced their intention to introduce a new set of handsets in the UK. The company will shortly release a number of phones from entry level handsets to high end devices. The phones are priced from under £30 to £50.

This comes shortly after Samsung has announced two handsets, the Samsung Monte and the highly anticipated Samsung Wave. Both phones will be available for customers in the UK in May (Monte) and in June (Wave).

Samsung WEP495 comes in a series of colors, including pink, orange, yellow, black or white and incorporates Wind Noise Reduction technology, which, as the name suggest, will eliminate the noise caused by the wind hitting the microphone. The Samsung WEP 495 is available now.

Finally, the Samsung HM1500 is an entry level phone with fixed canal earphone which makes it “ideal for use whilst wearing glasses or a helmet”. The handset comes with built-in vibrating alert, microphone, noise reduction, auto volume control and offers up to 6 hours talk time. The Samsung HM1500 is also available now.

One of my friends from work gave me a WEP570 as a present. I already had a Samsung Bluetooth headset and excluding the fact that there was a car charging cradle, I didn’t really see that much difference at first. But, this one definitely has longer battery life and way better call quality (maybe that’s natural for a latest model?) It also is smaller with a more edgy design. I like the overall circular design and the earpiece is effective in holding the headset in place.

How to use is similar to what I already had, but WEP570 is much better in terms of functionality and design. With full battery, you can talk up to 6 hours and a good 200 hours of standby time! I am definitely sure that the product has way better battery life than similar products. It only weighs 11g that it’s not even worth mentioning the weight. Other than the fact that the ear hook is touching the ear, it is so light that you can't feel that you are wearing it. At this one time, I wore it for some time even after hanging up!

I tested the call quality for both indoors and outdoors walking around quickly. Call quality was quite clear indoors. I also went around within 10m to test the Bluetooth connection and there was no disconnection. When I moved to another room and closed the door, the sound seemed to drop a bit but the call quality remained largely unchanged. Outdoor testing also showed much better quality compared to the device I had. I quite like the fact that the surrounding noise is detected to automatically control the volume.
