Samsung Sync Phone

 

It's standard for cellular carriers these days to tout a music service and phones that work with it. But most of these so-called "music phones" can't compete with dedicated digital audio players. This certainly holds true for Cingular's Samsung...

Good Web functionality Good external, touch-sensitive controls

No over-the-air music downloads Earbuds cost extra

If you're looking for a phone that lives up to the "music phone" hype, you'll be disappointed in the Sync. It is inexpensive and does a good job with Web content, but it didn't win fans with its voice quality or talk time

Samsung SGH-a707 (Sync)

 

For a device that claims to be a music phone, the Sync makes listening to music a lot harder than it should be.

Good Web functionality, Good external, touch-sensitive controls

No over-the-air music downloads, Earbuds cost extra

Samsung Sync SGH-A707 review:

 

After Sprint and Verizon Wireless introduced their music-downloading services in late 2005 and early 2006, we were left wondering when Cingular Wireless was going to make a musical move of its own. The carrier made a few feints in that direction this...

The Samsung Sync has an attractive design that includes a great internal display. It also supports Cingular Music and offers a full range of features, including support for HSDPA networks, stereo Bluetooth, and a satisfying 2-megapixel camera.

The Samsung Sync had average call quality at times, and we weren't impressed by the navigation controls or keypad. Also, it doesn't come with a USB cable in the box.

The Samsung Sync is a great choice for music-mad cell phone users, but its call quality could be better.

Samsung SGH-A707 Sync

 

I'm willing to overlook some minor issues because of what Cingular has packed in here for only $49 with contract. The A707 doesn't sound quite as good as the Sony Ericsson Walkman phone, but it syncs, and that's what really matters.

Syncs with Napster, Yahoo! Music, and Windows Media Player. High-speed data. Low, low price. Support for wireless headphones

Average call quality. Music could sound better

If you use Napster, Yahoo!, or Windows Media Player, this phone gives you an easy and affordable way to bring your music with you.

Samsung SYNC SGH-A707

 

The Samsung SGH A707 is an awesome phone that has a sweet price spot (only $50 after the rebate). The SGH A707 is an ultra thin clamshell phone that has plenty of great features including a fully functional MP3 player, Stereo Bluetooth, external music...

Both display screens worked well even in sunlight ; MP3 player worked great, not an iPod killer, but definitely easy to use ; Memory slot is a nice plus ; Digital camera is high quality ; Low price ; for the price this phone is an excellent value ;...

Battery life could be a tad better, make sure you close your applications for maximum battery life ; Camera was very high quality ; however, you do need to take pics in good lighting conditions

The SGH A707 is a very good phone for the money.

not so good

 

The Sync's internal display is huge at 2.24 inches (176x220 pixels), and it supports 262,000 colors. It's very easy on the eyes, offering vibrant, eye-popping colors and readable text. As with most Samsung displays, it's difficult to see in direct...
