Just today I saw a TV advertisement of this Dual Sim phone from Samsung. It is called Samsung Punch (as advertised in the Philippines).
It is capable of having a dual standby which only means that both sims can be used without the need for switching from one sim to another. Both sims can receive text messages simultaneously unlike other dual sim phones.
This is what makes this mobile phone somehow unique. Plus the fact that it was made by renowned brands like Samsung. Though it has quick links on Social networking sites sadly the phone is not on 3G and no Wifi.
With this, you have to rely so much on your Telco service provider when accessing your Facebook and Twitter accounts. Complete Specifications below:

does the themes of this phone can be change?or can i download themes for this phone just in case i wanna have another style of themes??
Themes are changeable. Yes you can download themes.
Does it play MP3 also?
Gumagana naman. Pero mag reply ka sa service ng telco when accessing your account. Wala syang 3G so expect na medyo mabagal ang connection nyan.
bkit pla ayw gumana ng opera mini d2??anung version b dpt??
I just bought a Samsung Punch last weekend and I can say I’m pleased with this gadget.
I like it because it’s pretty cheap, dual SIM(I hate bringing two phones) and I don’t need WIFI.
It’s really really light and a bit tricky to use at first.
The only thing that I have problems with is the scrollable applications at the home screen that includes, yahoo messenger, facebook and twitter. I don’t know if I just can’t find how to remove it or it just can’t be removed at all.
how many days before battery of samsung punch drains?
check the talk time and standby time. :-)
go to setting, click DISPLAY then SMART HOME .. there you can change the display on your punch…
Maganda ba tlga to? Feautures and everything? Tska ung Sounds nya malakas naman? Im confused co’z Im gonna buy it e. Thnks
what if panay ang tawag ko tatagal kaya ng kahit 2 days? kasi kung 3 days text lang yun.
mas ok rin kaya ang punch compare sa LG dual nila mas cheaper kasi yun?
Tingin ko hindi tatagal ang punch ng two days kung puro tawag ang gagawin mo.
im planning to buy dis new samsung punch….but iv hesitation….handy b xa gamitin guys???hindi b mahirap magtxt?
Kung sanay ka sa hindi qwerty keyboard medyo mahihirapan, pero mabilis naman mag adjust. So don’t worry that much.
kung sanay ka sa conventional na keypad mahihirapan ka sa umpisa, pero masasanay ka din. ako 1st time ko nagkaron ng samsung phone at 1st time ko din sa qwerty, ok naman to para sakin. sa una lang mahirap, sanayan lang..
waaa. im really considering to buy one. pero may nakita akong punch na wifi ready. around P5500. what do you guys think?
Hi, I suggest you buy the one with Wifi. I think that’s the upgraded version of punch the Samsung Chat 335.
Matt, dual sim din ba ang samsung chat 335?
Hi Josh, hindi sya dual sim.
im gonna buy this phone today. sa market2 global taguig. its 5k. is it ok? my only concern buying this phone is the dual sim. haha. is opera mina working on punch? some of my question is already answer. so do pls reply xD
i’m planning to buy this as a gift. the person i’m planning to give this to is quite practical in his choices with cellphones. he is not particular with taking pictures, as long as the battery does not drain after one day. He also prefers cellphones with speakers with nice quality. I hope the Samsung Punch covers those preferences. Although this does not have 3G, right?
It does not have 3G.
i’m excited to have my samsung punch! does it have a dictionary application? just like other samsung phones? i really hope it has.
i’m sorry because i’m that techy.. could any tell me what opera mini is… thanks..
Sir, how can you install themes, games and apps and where to get it? Thanks!
hello, how do i turn off internet browsing? mukhang ayaw nya dun sa exit exit lang. i was charged double. :( i have mobile internet subscription with sun pero hindi sya unli… help naman.
hey matt. pwede bang naka activate yung dalawang sim ng sabay? nakakalito lang kasi may switch button pa between sim 1 and sim 2 eh.. please reply, thank you!! :)
I just got one. I noticed there’s always the letter G on my upper left screen. Does that mean I’m connected to GPRS?does that mean I’m being charged for that?I don’t want to connect to any internet but I can’t seem to remove the letter G…please help?
if i were u … mas MAGANDA ang SAMSUNG CHAT 335 .. nakabili ako last 2 days lng. And super nkakatuwa Dahil mei WIFI nag download ako ng APPS like YOUTUBE,GOOGLE MAPS,Ebuddy(for multi-chatting)…
gumagana ang youtube video d2 kaya maganda at mabilis dahil hndi sya nag bu-buffer.. :)) thats all GUYS .. the best tlga to kahit di pa ako maka-adjust s QWERTY because galing ako s samsung corby :))
just want to ask ur opinion guys, which is better?
Samsung CHamp or This Samsung PunCH? :)
where can i download themes for samsung punch?
i really want this phone… is it worth it?? all i want is the dual sim….. ayos ba speaker phone???
hi matt. i’m not sure if this has been asked, i’m not patient enough to read everything above but i have to ask if samsung punch can be used in Japan? i bought the unit here.
Hi Ice, I’m not sure about that it would be better to ask the store where you bought the unit. For sure they will give you details about it.
