Samsung S7220 Ultra b review: More than meets the eye

 

Sharp looks and decent kit, Samsung S7220 Ultra b is one of those handsets that would rather do the job than do the talk. Not so long ago, the S7220 Ultra b could've been basking in the Soul kind of hype...

Samsung Ultra B S7220 Review

 

Samsung has put out two midrange phones on the market this year, both aiming at customers looking for a stylish appearance at an affordable price. These are the Ultra B and the Ultra S, and we are about to review the first one. Being a direct successor...

Samsung Lucido S7220

 

So what is actually going on under the Lucido's smart but subdued exterior? One immediately obvious feature is the 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash on the back. The camera features face and smile detection and also comes with "anti-blur...

Samsung S7220 Ultra b

 

But in fact, the Ultra b is a lot more interesting than it first looks. This is a 3.5G phone with a 5 megapixel camera and GPS that comes in at a very lightweight 88 grams and should retail for only around €240 SIM-free.

Recommended!

Samsung Lucido S7220

 

If you're looking for a well-featured, low-cost, SIM-free handset, add the GPS-enabled Samsung Lucido S7220 to your shortlist.

I really liked the Samsung Lucido S7220. Considering its low cost, it has a whole bunch of good features. Shame the GPS is hidden away, but overall if you are looking for a SIM-free choice this could be a good shortlist handset.

Samsung Lucido S7220 review

 

We were underwhelmed by the Lucido, which felt dated despite some cutting-edge features, including HSDPA and GPS. There's nothing really wrong with this phone, but there's nothing inspiring either, except for the lovely AMOLED screen. If you like the...

Clear, vivid screen ; GPS ; Fast Web browsing thanks to HSDPA ; Keyboard shortcuts on menu items ; Decent camera ; Memory card slot

Ugly, confusing icons ; Poor video quality ; Insanely prolific beeping ; No map app pre-installed

Conclusion The Samsung Lucido S7220 didn't set our world on fire, but it has a solid range of features and a lovely AMOLED screen, so we're willing to forgive its dated user interface and annoying abundance of beeps. A couple of the features didn't...

Samsung Lucido S7220 Review

 

The AMOLED screen is superbright, and the overall design means it's compact, while the brushed metal casing gives it an air of quality.

On the surface, the Samsung Lucido looks like your average compact mobile phone, but the Fake Calls and SOS messaging mean it’s a wise choice for those that have any concerns about personal safety (or being in awkward situations for that matter). It’s...

Samsung - Lucido S7220

 

Sometimes you could be forgiven for thinking the candybar handset is dead. But in fact it is alive and kicking, and even blingy old Samsung takes a pot-shot at it from time to time. The Lucido ...

The Samsung Lucido lacks wow-factor in terms of design, and has no Wi-Fi. But it is suitable for the thick-of-thumb and has superb battery life.
