Excerpt: The Samsung Strive SGH-A687 is a comfortable and user-friendly messaging phone in the mid-range market with some amazingly new features added to it. The performance is quite satisfactory as well and here’s the full review to help you know the device...
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
