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!
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.
Conclusion: Overall the Samsung Diva it a typical entry-level phone. Some design and software tweaks have been made to make it female specific, but we suspect that many will see past this superficial tinkering and opt for a solid alternative, perhaps another from Samsung's line. The changes don't get over the fact that the day-to-day operation isn't the most intuitive.
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
