The latest Samsung Soul mobile phone offers some of the best in technology and design that the manufacturer has to offer, originally released on O2 the Samsung U900 Soul went on to be launched with Vodafone, Orange and T-Mobile UK networks until now when this new 5.0 megapixel camera device has been made available as a Pay As You Go phone.
The top-end range of mobile phones are not usually offered as PrePay handsets mostly because of the high price they can demand so its surprising to see the Samsung Soul released this way especially so soon after launching as a contract package.
The pay as you go system of owning a mobile phone is not always the cheapest way, for users that talk for more than a couple of minutes per day it can work out more expensive than a contract deal. There are a number of reasons that people will opt for pay as you go over contract as we will try and explain.
Say you wanted to buy the new Samsung Soul but have a bad credit rating, this means that you may not pass the tough network credit checks, with pay as you go phones there are no checks so that just about anyone can simply order a phone.
Another reason consumers decide on pay as you go rather than contract deals is when they are still within their minimum term contract period, if a phone comes onto the market that they just have to have, the Samsung Soul is a great example then so long as they choose the same network selling the prepay handset they can then insert their existing SIM card retaining their current mobile number and account details.
Pay as you go phones do sometimes come network locked to the supplier, they can be unlocked from the original network at a small fee but it usually takes a little time for new models such as the Samsung Soul to filter through the system.
The Samsung Soul allows you to take sharp and vivid photos using the phones advanced 5 Megapixel camera with auto-focus, with image stabilization, face detection and Wide Dynamic Range technology, this is a camera phone to rival modern digital cameras. The Samsung Soul mobile phone ensures exceptionally high quality images, even in low-light environments, thanks to its built in flash.
With Bang & Olufsen ICE power digital amplifier Samsung Soul is a mini sound system in your pocket that provides an amazing music output. FM stereo radio with RDS lets you listen to music and current affairs on the move. Music library application organizes your music collection, whilst the memory card slot allows you to carry up to 1000 songs in your pocket.
"Magic Touch" active display - the Samsung Soul is an incredible mobile phone - the navigation indicators on the keypad of the phone change according to your needs. Start the music player and the DaCP will display dedicated music controls. Switch to camera mode, and the DaCP changes to zoom and brightness controls giving you instant access to common camera features.
After so many network releases and this latest news that the Samsung Soul is now available as a pay as you go phone this only leaves a couple more options fro further releases, the next one being a launch as a SIM Free handset with no network ties or ongoing charges as sim free mobile phones are unlocked to all UK networks.
