Do you want to sell or trade your Samsung Pixon?
Yes? Good, you’re at the right place.
But first, I need you to determine if you want to trade your phone for a better version, or if you want to sell it for cash?
After you decide, we’ll walk you through the steps to cash in or trade up.
In the meantime, let’s review your phone.
It’s funny to think that some of our most budget phones under $50 have 8MP cameras that’ll run circles around the Samsung Pixon. During its release in 2008, the Samsung Pixon was the first cell phone to have an 8 MP camera. It’s a protruding chunky camera. Side by side, you can hardly tell the difference between a Pixon and a real camera.
The 8MP camera was the Pixon way of being a contender for the “King of the multimedia phones,” which was held by the Apple iPhone. We know how this story ends. The Pixon was just another casualty vanquished by the likes of Apple. Even today, they still run supreme.
However, the Pixon was a worthy contender with its 3.2-inch touchscreen display. It has a resolution of 240 x 400 pixels and 262k colors that pales to Apple's 16 million colors. But the display still produces some decent images and videos.
The touchscreen isn’t very responsive compared to Apple. But it's responsive enough to not trigger your annoying meter. Below the display are a few physical buttons: the Send and End keys and a small round button. It’s a pity that the button doesn’t double as a mouse. You can only press the button.
When you turn the phone 90-degrees to the left, it functions as a camera. There’s a dedicated shutter button, play and change modes button, and the volume rocker doubles as digital zoom.
The left side of the phone has a hold/locking key, shortcut keys, and microSD card slot. And on the top, there’s a charger connector that doubles as a headphone jack. The jack is proprietary. So it doesn’t accept 3.5 mm headphones without an adapter.
Luckily, included in the package are earphones with a 3.5 mm stereo adapter. There’s also a charger and a stylus.
Although the Samsung Pixon looks—and somewhat functions—like a smartphone, it isn’t. And that’s more evident internet browsing than any area. It uses a global quad-band GSM (2G) and it doesn’t connect to Wi-Fi. Shockingly, the pages load rather quickly. But the performance is hindered immensely when navigating the page. It’s gridy, jerky, and flat out unpleasant to use.
The smartphone features are evident in the touchscreen and interface. It has customizable home screen widgets. However, there’s limited widget space. You can fit around two-to-four widget comfortably, depending on size. Also, the main menu has a set of beautiful colorful icons. There’s no additional graphic themes. But you do have various wallpaper options.
Now let’s get into the main feature on the Pixon, the camera. So far we know that it’s an 8MP camera that looks and functions like a real camera. But the question is … Does it shoot like one?
We’ll get to the answer shortly. But some shooting features of the Pixon include face detection, smile shot, and 13 scenes. There’s also panorama, macro, white balance, and ISO. Other shooting modes are flash, exposure value, and auto focus. Now let’s get to the photo quality.
Despite the lack of stabilization the phone takes clear photos, not crips but clear. Because the shutter is very fast, it counters shaky hands and movements. Where the camera shines is in the colors. Colors are realistic and come out really good. With enough light, there’s not too much to complain about here. But low light is another story. The ISO settings help brighten up the photo at the expense of pixelization. Plus, the LED flash is dull and weak. It doesn't provide enough light.
After photos have been saved, you can either view by sliding individually or view in the gallery. You can also geotag photos by dates, times, and locations of where you captured the photo. The camera can shoot videos up to 120 fps, giving you a very smooth shooting experience. You can record and play videos in DVD resolution (720 x 480), which looks very good on the big screen.
Other features include a music player. It has a homepage widget, uses a 3.5 mm headphone adapter, and is equipped with FM radio. The loudspeakers have nice quality and are loud.
Now that we got the review out of the way, let’s discuss your selling options.
There’s two available deals for your Samsung Pixon . You can choose to:
Sell Samsung Pixon for cash or
Trade in Samsung Pixon
If you want cash return, this option is for you.
Preparing to sell your Samsung Pixon is pretty easy. Just follow these steps:
● Transfer all your files to another device or an external storage device
● Make sure you remove all passwords and give access
● Restore your phone to factory settings
Done! That’s it.
Now you can sell your phone.
If you don’t want cash, you can trade in your Pixon instead.
Just follow the same steps listed above.
When you finish completing the steps, trading your phone will be a cinch.
That pretty much wraps everything up.
Now it’s all up to you.
Will you sell your Samsung Pixon for cash, or maybe you’ll like to trade it in for something else of your choosing?
