Samsung SCH-A970


The Samsung SCH-A970 is a big, powerful phone, but its 2MP camera doesn't take great pictures.

Optical zoom. Memory card slot. Excellent voice recognition, including speech-to-text.

Blurry pictures.

Samsung SCH-A970 (Verizon Wireless) review: Samsung SCH-A970 (Verizon Wireless)


Samsung SCH-A970 Verizon Wireless's latest 3G V Cast phone, the Samsung SCH-A970 is a compelling package of multimedia and communication tools. Along with support for Verizon's high-speed 3G network, the handset offers a 2-megapixel camera/camcorder,...

The Samsung SCH-A970 supports a 3G EV-DO network, Bluetooth, an MP3 player, a TransFlash slot, a speakerphone, and a 2-megapixel camera and camcorder with optical zoom.

The Samsung SCH-A970 is bulky. It also suffers from spotty EV-DO coverage and disappointing photo quality.

The Samsung SCH-A970 is a good choice for a rich multimedia experience, though the promised features don't always live up to expectations.

The Samsung A970 is a groundbreaking device. Through innovative and unorthodox lens positioning, optical zoom capabilities were able to be included, features limited by the lack of space for moving optics
