Samsung F700 review: Tap or type


The F700 is pretty much where it all began for Samsung and large touchscreens. It was their first mobile phone to feature a three-and-above-inch touchscreen display and while back in the day 3 megapixel autofocus cameras...

Stylish looks and high-quality build ; Tri-band GSM and HSDPA support with video calls ; Large 3.2" touchscreen TFT display of 240 x 440 pixel resolution ; Comfortable QWERTY keyboard ; 3 megapixel autofocus camera ; Touch haptic feedback is present ;...

Bulky size ; Awkward and slow web browser scrolling and panning ; Video recording maxes out at QVGA@15fps ; Unable to play widescreen user-encoded WMV and H.263 videos ; Slow image zooming in the gallery ; The three Java games are trial versions only ;...

The quality construction and glossy finish can make you forgive the bulky size of Samsung F700, or sort of. The bodywork changes hues from violet through dark blue to black depending on how light falls on it. Once you have the Samsung F700 in your hand...

Samsung SGH-F700v mobile phone


Can this smartphone from Samsung offer smart connectivity?

On paper the Samsung F700 looks to be a great handset that could really challenge the iPhone in all the stakes. Close up and it's good, but not great.

Stuff magazine


Samsung's handsome F700 is the latest phone to attempt to thwack the iPhone off its touchscreen podium. Can its QWERTY keypad give it the edge?

A stylish multimedia phone, but the ticklish UI doesn't hold a candle to the iPhone's revolutionary touch skills
