Personal Electronics buzz
11 August 2009
Excerpt: The Samsung Gleam SCH-U700 caught my eye at the Verizon store. I have been looking for a new cell phone with Bluetooth, a music player and a 2.0 MP camera/camcorder. I had a Motorola Razr and I was up for something a little different, but not too much different.
Conclusion: The Samsung U700 left us with mixed feelings – we are definitely not keen on the touch-sensitve keys, but some people may think they are just normal. The design is attractive, but the dimensions are not ultra-small as with the U100 for example.
Pros: Sexy design, Excellent sound quality, 3G and microSD slot
Cons: Touch keys cause problems, Mediocre camera quality for 3-megapixel unit, Tri-band only
Excerpt: The Ultra Edition II Samsung U700 mobile phone is designed to make a statement. With great looks and top performance you’ll be very pleased with this phone and will certainly stand out from the crowd.
Summary: The U700 is a distinctive HSDPA capable phone. Beneath its flashy exterior is a more than capable handset that packs quite a punch in terms of features. If you can look past the sometimes frustrating controls, what remains is an excellent phone.
Pros: HSDPA capable, design and looks, features list, 3.2 megapixel camera, good in-call quality
Cons: User interface a little slower than previous units, touch sensitive buttons are a hit and miss affair, battery life
Excerpt: Das Smartphone Samsung SGH-U700 wurde in insgesamt 5 Tests aus der Fachpresse wie test (Stiftung Warentest), Connect oder handytarife.de inspiziert. Alles in allem konnte der Testkandidat Samsung SGH-U700 dort mit Note 2,5 abschneiden. Damit wurde ein solides Testergebnis erreicht.
