Samsung SGH-J700

 

Samsung's SGH-J700 is nice to look at, but we know better than to judge on looks alone.

Samsung J700 Preview

 

With a chic, slim chassis and a smooth sliding action, the Samsung J700 looks like a good choice for the fashionista who's not too keen on fiddly extras. Its small stature makes it easy to carry around,…

Samsung J700 Review

 

"A good choice for the fashionista who's not too keen on fiddly extras."

The 2-inch screen isn’t brilliantly high resolution, so don’t expect your photos to look professional on it, and with no email on the J700, you'll have to make do with calls and text messaging to stay in touch.

Samsung J700 review

 

The Samsung J700 is an entry level phone which looks a lot like the Samsung G600.…

The Samsung J700 is one of the smartest looking entry level handsets available

It's an entry level phone with entry level features

There is no denying the Samsung J700's aesthetic appeal. But for features, you will get what you pay for.

Plenty of bang for your buck

Stylish design, build quality, reasonable features list, A2DP Bluetooth

Proprietary headphone jack, mediocre display

The J700 isn't going to win any awards, but it does a relatively sound job if you are after a budget handset with a few extra features. It is one of the better pre-paid handsets on the market.

Samsung SGH-J700 Review

 

The Samsung J700 is a low-end compact slider that comes in a sleek black colored casing. There's nothing unusual regarding its looks or any of its features. The handset is a cheap solid slider with mediocre features, but enough qualities for those who...

The strong point of the device is surely the low price that you have to pay to take advantage of such good quality features. Samsung SGH-J700 features one of the best 1.3 Megapixel cameras, way above average battery and medium quality music sound. EDGE...

The only negative that I have noticed is the mediocre display, which doesn't seem to cope with the rest of its features. Also, if you can 'bear' the same unchanged slide design offered by Samsung, the J700 handset will definitely serve you well

Reliable, looks good, well built, easy to use

Limited features such as low-resolution camera, limited storage and small screen

Simple to use and good value for money

Poor picture resolution. This is less important as main use is for phoning

Samsung J700

 

Display easy to see and fits into handbag or whatever really well.Easy to move around the programmes

Sometimes can't hear the phone ringing if inside a pocket or handbag. This has nothing to do with my hearing as that is fine. The choice of call rings isn't particularly great also
