Samsung Sunburst SGH-a697 (AT&T)

PC Magazine
28 August 2010
  • Conclusion: The Samsung Sunburst offers good video playback, a friendly user interface, and excellent call quality for a very low price. But be careful which icons you click on because AT&T is all too happy to jack up the Sunburst's monthly fees.
  • Pros: Big, colorful screen. Great call quality and battery life. Smooth video playback.
  • Cons: No 3G or Wi-Fi. Bloatware-infested. Required $20/month data plan kills value.

Samsung Sunburst (SGH-A697)

Mobile Review
7 April 2010
  • Summary: Samsung Sunburst is a very nice touchscreen feature phone. It feels expensive, has multiple of advanced features and is very easy to personalize to your personal taste. The single major drawback is the lack of 3.5mm jack for the headset. While it’s price without a contract is good for what it has to offer, but can be outbid by a few unlocked competitors without AT&T software and limitations, the rebates run at this time do make Sunburst a good value if you are looking...

Samsung Sunburst A697 Review

Phone Arena
31 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Callers were impressed with the sound quality of the Sunburst , saying we sounded very clear and rating us 8.5/10.  They sounded good to us as well, but background noise came through almost as clear as the caller did.  Still, their voice was reproduced naturally and volume was good. is rated at just 5 hours of talk time, very low especially for an EDGE feature phone. It will be enough to get you through a day or two. So what is the Samsung Sunburst?
  • Pros: High-end build quality and large touchscreen in a svelte package, Good call quality
  • Cons: Messaging is not threaded, Keyboard is laggy, Proprietary charging port and no headset jack
