Samsung B7722 Review
26 August 2010
Summary: The dual SIM card handsets are becoming more popular nowadays as people are leading an occupied personal and a professional life. The Samsung has introduced the new B7722 dual SIM card handset. It has a large display and it is capable of switching between the SIM cards with the touch of a button. The company would have thought that the dual SIM card feature is alone enough for the handset to compete with the other existing smartphones.
Cons: Dual-SIM dual standby quad-band GSM/EDGE support, Single-band 3G with HSDPA (SIM 1 only), TouchWiz UI, Quite pricey, Memory management issues, Poor screen sunlight legibility, Smudge-prone back and front panels, No standard 3.5mm audio jack
Conclusion: The Samsung B7722 certainly is worth a look. But is it worth your time and money? To begin with, if dual SIM service is a must you’re given a limited choice already. There are people out there who would swear dual SIM phones are the best this industry has ever come up with. But dual SIM phones will never be mass market. So, how does it work for the Samsung B7722? It is ready to accommodate two SIM cards and packs a touchscreen.
Pros: 3.2" 256K-color resistive touchscreen at WQVGA resolution, Dual-SIM dual standby quad-band GSM/EDGE support, Single-band 3G with HSDPA (SIM 1 only), TouchWiz UI, 5 megapixel autofocus camera and QVGA@30fps video, Wi-Fi connectivity, FM radio with RDS, Stereo Bluetooth 2.1, Standard microUSB port, Office document viewer, Good audio quality
Cons: Quite pricey, Memory management issues, Poor screen sunlight legibility, Smudge-prone back and front panels, No standard 3.5mm audio jack
Summary: The ringtone volume is enough for the majority of situations including the noisy streets. The vibro is average or a bit better, but some users claim to miss it. The sensitivity of the phone is typical of Samsung, despite two radio modules.
This phone does not pretend to rival Samsung Wave – the screen is simpler, the interface is a bit older, but still remains quite decent.
Conclusion: As a phone the handset operates decently, the earpiece is powered well, and we were hearing the voices loud and with low ambient noise, but sounding a little flat. The other party said we sound a bit quiet and the voice quality was subpar. The loudspeaker's volume is high, while the supplied headset provides decent sound, but connects via the microUSB port, instead of a standard 3.5mm audio jack.
Pros: Dual-SIM/dual-standby handset, Dedicated button for toggling between SIM cards
Cons: Expensive, Only one of the SIM cards can use 3G, Samsung's Dolphin browser is slow and outdated
Summary: Das Samsung B7722i ist kein vollwertiges Smartphone, auch wenn der Touchscreen und die Touchwiz-Oberfläche dies vermuten lassen. Der resistive Touchscreen trübt zudem deutlich den Bedienkomfort. Die Verwaltung der beiden SIM-Karten geht dagegen leicht von der Hand. Sprachqualität und Multimedia-Eigenschaften sind in Ordnung, ragen aber nicht sonderlich hervor. Angesichts der geringen Auswahl an Dual-SIM-Handys gehört das Modell dennoch zur Spitzengruppe.
Summary: Das Samsung GT-B7722 ist unterm Strich ein gutes Dual-SIM-Handy mit vergleichsweise viel Ausstattung. Die meisten Dual-SIM-Handys sind deutlich schlechter ausgestattet. Der Preis fällt mit 349 Euro entsprechend höher aus.
