Samsung Corby Pro B5310: QWERTY, Touchscreen and WiFi

After suffering for almost a year with her China mobile phone, Wifey is now enjoying the latest powerful mobile from Samsung.

Samsung Corby Pro B5310: What a beauty!

It’s called Samsung Corby Pro B5310, which was released in the Philippines early this year. It houses a unique hybrid of a touchscreen and a sliding QWERTY keypad. You can use the touchscreen to conveniently browse through the menu items, and you can pull out the QWERTY keypad for faster texting.

What makes it oh-so-amazing is its WiFi connectivity. It’s like the Nokia Eseries, but at a much lower price. It also caters to social networking addicts (like us), with its full integration of popular services such as Facebook, Twitter, Friendster, MySpace and YouTube.

We’re still playing with the bubble wrap, but we’re already very impressed with this phone. I’m sure we’ll discover more gems to like in this bang-for-your-buck mobile.


We’ve seen the Corby Pro being sold in several stores in Davao City, although the sales agents say they sell like hotcakes. We purchased ours in Samsung Mobile store in SM City Davao.

  1. Nice phone!

    How much is it now here in Davao?

    • Hi, Migs. We got this for P12,500 at Samsung Mobile shop in SM City Davao. Just the other day, though, we saw the same phone at Phones and Gadgets (they only had the white model) and at Herrera Brothers for P11,990 only. 🙂

  4. Hi Blanessa (nice name)! Yup, wala kaming issues with its WiFi features. In fact, sobrang simple lang, kasi one-button push lang at connected ka na sa nearest available WiFi spot. 🙂

  7. ayaw eh.. ano kaya problema nung akin. ano gamit mo? wifi?

  8. Gumagana siya sa WiFi at sa Globe Tattoo SIM ko. Yung third photo sa taas, actual YouTube playing yun na kinunan namin.

    Na-check mo na ba kung tama ang naka-set na Internet Profile sa Settings? Kung ayaw pa rin mag-play after choosing the correct Internet Profile, ipa-check mo na lang sa Samsung or sa SIM provider mo (Globe, Smart, Sun, others) para ma-check nila ano talaga ang problema.

    Hope everything goes well soon. 😉

  18. hi. i have the same phone.. right now, ayaw gumana ng qwerty keypad niya.. pati yung other na pindutan, yung touch features lang niya yung nagagamit ko. what could be the possible problem and solution?

  19. Hi, Mae. Sorry to hear about your keypad not working. Baka nabasa kaya ayaw na gumana? Hindi naman nabuhusan ng any liquid before? It’s probably best to bring it to Samsung’s Service Center (especially if within warranty pa yung phone mo) para ma-check nila ano talaga ang problema.
