Samsung U700 review: Ultra fit

 

Brilliant QVGA display, HSDPA, 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, memory card and many other functions in a fashionably slim shape. Samsung U700, a.k.a Samsung Ultra 12.1, is one of the four slim models in the Ultra Edition II Series. The number...

Samsung U700 owes its smart and elegant looks to a combination of a number of important elements: sliding construction, slim and solid body and glossy finish. In addition, to follow suit with the design features of the phone's front panel, Samsung has...

Samsung U700 Ultra 12.1 Review

 

If you NEED 3G for either fast retrieving of the emails (as the browser is mediocre) or for video calling, this is the only Ultra slim Samsung with it. But if not, the U600 will offer you sexier design and quad-band GSM that can be used anywhere a...

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 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.

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.

Samsung U700

 

The U700 packs HSDPA goodness into an impressively thin and light phone, but the touch keys cause performance problems.

HSDPA in a wafer-thin and super-light package ; Quick access to Google ; Good music features

Shutter button delay ; Touch-sensitive keys can annoy ; Side keys placed low

The main advantages the U700 has over its similarly shiny, touch-keyed competitors are its size and weight, which are impressively teeny. Beyond that distinction, there isn't a whole lot to elevate the phone to the higher echelons of the slider handset...
