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 F700 aka the Vodafone Croix Reviewed

 

Vincent Nguyen got his grubby little hands on another phone the rest of us will just have to dream about, Samsung F700 or the Vodafone Croix. We've written about this phone several times before eventually getting some hands on time at CeBIT a few...

Sadly, Vincent wasn’t impressed, sure the specs look and sound great, but the menus kind of suck and have a rather steep learning curve, the haptics aren’t really there as it shakes the whole phone, not just where you touched, the keyboard has no...

Samsung F700 is characterised by its large touchscreen, only one hardware button on the front and side-sliding QWERTY. It is using the Croix interface which although looks different is based on the software used in other models ...

Samsung SGH-F700 - HardwareZone.com

 

Samsung's SGH-F700 is an elegantly designed phone that hides a QWERTY keyboard within its minimalistic profile.

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.

Samsung F700 Motion Sync Sensor review

 

Plenty of technology, but beaten by other models in the same range

Expert review by:

Samsung SGH-F700V

 

Samsung's F700V joins the growing number of phones looking to knock Apple from its perch.

The F700V is, as you've probably already guessed, a touch-screen device, and one that you'd probably also expect to be inferior in quality to the iPhone, but the F700V has a couple of important advantages hidden up its tightly-tailored sleeve. The...

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
