Samsung Diva S7070 review – the best looking budget phone money can buy
18 April 2010
Excerpt: Samsung have just released the Samsung Diva S7070, a super-smart fashion phone that combines serious style with a range of social networking features – and all for a bargain price. Aimed primarily at women, Samsung have done much more than spray the Diva pink – for a start it’s actually white!
Conclusion: Camera is a major plus point in the Samsung S7070 Diva. Its &qout;Lomo Effect&qout; is a great feature that can change a simple snap into a glamorous picture by tweaking the contrast aspects. Though it is a 3 mega pixel camera, it comes with a smile shot and up to ISO 800 sensitivity. The device clicks images with 2048x1536 pixel resolution. There is no secondary camera for video recording.
Pros: Stylish design, Lomo effect in the camera, Touch screen
Excerpt: With a choice of black or white, a diamond-patterned back and a vibrant touch-screen, the is all about style. It’s easy to navigate around the three home screens, and social networking is made easy thanks to a selection of shortcuts.
Summary: Overview It takes a very brave (or stupid?) manufacturer to release a device that is only intended for women. Make no mistake about it, that is what it is, right down to the name: Samsung Diva. This would be difficult enough to comprehend if Nokia were to release it with their massive marketshare lead, but for a relatively minor name in the mobile market it is truly boggling.
Excerpt: The Samsung Diva, GT-S7070 to use the number you'll never hear again, is a phone that is targeted straight at women. No, it isn't some red-blooded horn dog of a phone, but one that's been designed to cater to the needs of girlies.
Pros: Camera is reasonably good, design differentiates it from your regular black handset
Cons: No 3.5mm jack, widgets vanished off home page, low resolution screen, uncomfortable for making calls
Summary: Like all fashion phones, whether or not the Samsung Diva will appeal to you depends on your taste. If you're not in love with its appearance, you can find similar-looking phones with more features for the same price
Pros: Pearly case looks unique and may tickle some people's fancy, Decent capacitive touchscreen, Light weight
Cons: No 3G, Wi-Fi or GPS, No camera flash, Facebook widget tries hard but fails to rock, Slow Web surfing, Ugly fonts
