The presence of social services positions and Ch @ t 222, a phone for active communication, as its name suggests. Unlike its predecessor (Ch @ t 335), the GT-E2222 has a screen size, a lower resolution, and no Wi-Fi. It is interesting that last year's model with the best performance is only 300 to 500 rubles.

The front panel has a speaker, display, and below it - six mechanical buttons ("Welcome", "retirement", "Change SIM", "no", the "functions", "message") and the joystick Five-way "OK" in the center. The keys are comfortable and have an average speed and a slight click. Backlight is soft and white. Even less - a full-size QWERTY keyboard.

Access NetFront is installed 4.1. You will see the navigation bar, zoom, bookmarks, history. On the Settings tab, the home page, see the profile of Internet. Due to the fact that the diagonal and the screen resolution is too small, use the browser completely uncomfortable, except perhaps in extreme cases, go to the mobile version of site.
The music player
Every time I scan the memory for composition. You can order all the songs, albums, artists and genres. When the game screen shows one of three views: the first - to cover the entire screen, the second - the coverage has been reduced, and full-screen graphic equalizer, and the third - the equalizer only. You can change the tune - left or right, the volume - up or down.
Setting the sound effects: Bass Boost, definition of music, concert hall, a series of pop, rock, jazz and so on. So that the presence of surround sound, "5.1-channel surround sound."
The headphone volume is high. Frequency response seemed to me a few "full" in the region 50-100 Hz and 16,000 to 20,000 Hz However, medium and low frequency (30-50 Hz), showed his best side. All in all, the music of the highest quality.
The speaker volume is above average, in the street heard the call well. Vibration is average in power.
At the top of the screen, a digital scale. Joystick left or right - go to preset stations, either up or down - volume control. If desired, the radio can be recorded.
Radio sensitivity is very high, above the average volume, the quality is quite good, especially dominated by mediums.
The call quality is not satisfactory. Vibrate powerful, can be felt even in the pocket of a winter jacket.
Overall impression - positive and the ergonomic design and a keyboard and a hands-free voice quality and music player. So if you are willing to endure the lack of 3G, Wi-Fi and a small screen, the Samsung GT-E2222 - a nice QWERTY phone in its price category.
