Smartphone Samsung 5250: quality and availability in one device
Samsung 5250, like any other mobile phonedevice based on the platform "BADA", belonged in due time to the most accessible gadgets. This is indicated by the cost of the device, its technical parameters, and even the equipment. It is this most popular mobile solution of this software platform that will be discussed in this article.
The boxed version of Samsung 5250 included the following:
"Smart" cell phone. Inside it was also a removable battery.
Interface cord, for synchronizing the device with any existing personal computer.
At once three important accessories are missing inpreviously listed. First of all it is a memory card. The capacity of the internal drive is "modest" and without this accessory it will be impossible to store all the necessary information on this gadget. The second important component is the cover. Without it, you can not keep the original state of the case of this device. Well, in the end, you need to remember to buy more and a protective film for the front panel. It will ensure the safety of the surface of the touch screen gadget.
Modest even by the standards of 2010 (and that's whenwas officially introduced this device) hardware components in the Samsung 5250. The characteristics of the device indicate the presence of a single-core CPU with a clock speed of only 667 MHz. The capacity of the built-in drive is only 100 MB. The maximum size of the installed memory card in this situation can be equal to 16 GB. The list of wireless interfaces consists of wi-fay, GPS and bluetooth. Also the device is equipped with transmitters of cellular networks of the 2nd (GSM 900/1800) and 3rd (UMTS) generations.
At the moment, the sensor is 3.2 MP (this is theinstalled in a single chamber of this device) provides a very, very low quality of photos and video. But do not forget that this smartphone was officially introduced in 2010. At that time, the capabilities of this camera fully corresponded to the budget solutions segment. Among other features of this camera, you can note the presence of digital zoom 2X and the selection of white balance in automatic mode.
Samsung 5250 was equipped with a removablea battery whose capacity is 1200 mAh. Taking into account the screen diagonal of 3.2 inches, its resolution (only 240 x 400), relatively modest technical parameters and high optimization of system software, the phone owner could confidently count on 3 days of gadget operation at an average load. A more intensive mode of use reduced this time to 1-1.5 days. Well, in the mode of maximum battery saving it was possible to stretch for 4-5 days.
Gadget Operating System
The youngest and very promisingthe software platform at the time of 2010 was the basis of Samsung 5250 Wave 525. The firmware of this device was based on the operating system "BADA". It was Samsung's own development. It combines the best of "Android" and iOS. But only the South Korean giant was engaged in the promotion of this OS, and he did not have enough opportunities for the full development of this product. Also, the developers of the application software paid attention to this software platform, as a result, Samsung was forced to refuse further development of its development.
Return to the initial state of the system software
There are two ways to reset softwaresystem software parameters in this device: using special code and using the "Settings" menu. In the first case, you need to type a special sequence of characters using the touchpad: "* 2767 * 3855 #". In the end, do not forget to press the call start button. It is this sequence and returns to the original settings of the system software Samsung 5250 Wave 525 (code). How do I reset the settings to reset the settings by the second method when using the "Settings" menu? The procedure in this case is as follows:
In the phone menu, we find the shortcut "Settings".
Next we find the "Reset" item.
The next step is to select "Factory settings".
Before starting this operation, you need totake into account that all user data and software will be deleted. Therefore, it is recommended to save the most valuable value on another device (for example, PC). This operation is carried out only when all other ways to restore the normal working capacity of the device are carried out, but the desired result is not achieved and the smartphone still continues to "buggy".
Responses of owners about this gadget. Its cost
At the very beginning of sales, buy such a deviceit was possible for 150 dollars. At the end of sales (2012-2013), the cost of the device has significantly decreased, and it was already possible to buy it for $ 100-110. The main drawback of this phone is its operating system. More precisely, a very small set of application software for this platform. But the pros in this case is much greater. Among them, we can note autonomy, and good performance, and support for memory cards of a fairly large size.
If it were not for the operating system of its ownthe development of the South Korean giant, the Samsung 5250 had all chances to become a hit in sales in the mobile solutions segment in 2010. And this is a bold enough experiment from one of the leading manufacturers of mobile gadgets, which did not end very successfully, and the software platform "BADA" is no longer relevant at the moment.
