Samsung SGH-U700V review

 

Samsung adds ultra-high speed to its Ultra range

Video calling ; 3G plus HSDPA-enabled ; QVGA screen

Touch-sensitive controls erratic ; Grease-prone surface ; Plastic rather than metal casing

Plenty of high-tech wizardry can't help but impress, but there are a touch too many niggles for our liking

Samsung SGH-U700V

 

This Samsung 3G slider certainly has the looks, but does it have the talent?

Samsung U700 review

 

Samsung's slimline Ultra set has just received HSDPA backing. But will the U700 buckle under the pressure of being the size zero hero?

The U700 should be tattooed with love and hate. For all its design finesse, HSDPA speeds and capable camera, it doubly frustrates with niggly feature and function compromises.

Its not only the striking sleek design of Samsungs SGH-U700 slider handset that appeals to todays mobile phone user. Equally impressive is the ability to boost data transmission speeds up to ten times faster than normal UMTS through the use of HSDPA -...

Samsung U700V review -

 

Not only easy on the eye, the U700V takes cracking photos

The touch-sensitive soft keys prove to be infuriating rather than invigorating

Samsung SGH-U700V

 

Having hit gold with its hugely successful Ultra range, Samsung is all set to prove there's more to its waif-like models than meets the eye with the U700. First glances soon reveal that the new addition shares the same gene pool as the popular U600

Samsung U700 Phone

 

The U600 had no 3G but the newer U700 has 3G and even faster HSDPA. That surely makes it a no brainer ?

Samsung U700

 

A flashy, stylish HSDPA slider featuring touch sensitive controls, a mirrored chrome finish and a 3.2 megapixel camera, Samsung's U700 has both style ...

HSDPA capable, design and looks, features list, 3.2 megapixel camera, good in-call quality

User interface a little slower than previous units, touch sensitive buttons are a hit and miss affair, battery life

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.
