Sydney's Samsung Strive review

phonedog.com
10 July 2010
  • Summary: The Samsung Strive is a basic messaging phone with a great QWERTY keyboard. It lacks a touchscreen, which is probably one reason why the price is so low - $19.99 after rebates with a new contract. Though you may find yourself wishing it was a touchscreen device, the design of keyboard is something not to be taken for granted. You’re fortunate if you can find a device that has a keyboard that is as easy to type on as this one.

Samsung Strive SGH-a687 (AT&T)

PC Magazine
2 April 2010
  • Conclusion: The Samsung Strive SGH-a687 could have been a good budget handset, but AT&T's marketing department buried the phone in bloatware and extra fees.
  • Pros: Big screen for an inexpensive device. Slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Good voice quality. Threaded SMS.
  • Cons: Non-standard headphone jack. Middling camera. Boatloads of bloatware.

Samsung Strive A687 Review

Phone Arena
31 March 2010
  • Conclusion: In what has proven to be a recurring theme with the Samsung Strive , call quality was good but not great.  Callers complained that we sounded distant and at times heard either a reverb or it sounded as if we were talking trough wax paper.  They gave us a 7.5/10 rating.  On our end it wasn’t quite as bad, we’d say they were an 8-8.5 with good volume but so-so voice quality.  The battery life is rated at a dismal 3 hours of talk time and 10 days of stand-by.
  • Pros: Snappy UI with good messaging features, Nice 2.6-inch display
  • Cons: Construction boarders on cheap, and the keyboard is stiff, Battery life is below average, AT&T’s new features are either playing catch-up or are paid versions of what other carriers have been offering for free for years
