Samsung Sunburst (AT&T) review:


When AT&T announced a slew of new messaging devices at CTIA 2010 , we weren't surprised to see two Samsung phones on the list. Samsung is hardly new to the messaging phone trend, after all. However, we were surprised to see the Samsung Sunburst...

The Samsung Sunburst is an affordable, slim, and lightweight touch-screen phone with a 2-megapixel camera, an HTML Web browser, GPS, an internal accelerometer, and more.

The Samsung Sunburst's interface is nothing new, and the touch screen can feel a little slow to respond at times.

As long as you don't expect it to have groundbreaking performance, the Sunburst is a simple touch-screen phone with a healthy set of midrange features for a pretty good price.

The Samsung Sunburst is a happy little tablet phone on AT&T. It's features Samsung's TouchWIZ interface and loads of home screen widgets. Can it get by on a wink and a smile?

The Samsung SCH-A697 Sunburst is an entry level feature phone with a large 3-inch touchscreen display and Samsung's TouchWiz user interface. Lauren tests it out for us, and comes away with mixed feelings about it.

Samsung Sunburst


I looked for a long time to get the right phone for my son, and myself. I looked at all the reviews and took a chance on this Sunburst from all the positive I was reading. Wow, I love it, and so does my son who's 18 years old! It's so easy to use, and...

Samsung Sunburst


I got this Samsung Sunsburst 2 weeks ago. This is my first touch phone. My daughter warned me not to get a touch phone, I would hate it. But I love it!! I like the way it makes a little vibration when you touch a key. The widget is a nice feature, too....

Solid feature phone


The Sunburst works best if you are looking for a handset to handle calls and messaging. If you want some heavy stuff then go for a smartphone. I did not expect a lot from this handset because I know that it's a feature phone. It's not a smartphone that...
