Samsung B7722 ReviewSamsung B7722 7
As a phone the handset operates decently, the earpiece is powered well, and we were hearing the voices loud and with low ambient noise, but sounding a little flat. The other party said we sound a bit quiet and the voice quality was subpar. The loudspeaker's volume is high, while the supplied headset provides decent sound, but connects via the microUSB port, instead of a standard 3.5mm audio jack.
One of the advantages of having a feature phone is usually the extended battery life compared to a smartphone, and the Samsung B7722 is rated for the respectable 13hrs of talk, and 17 days of standby. The last number is not that impressive, but we guess the second SIM card also juices out the battery to maintain network signal in standby mode.
There is only a handful of choices for a dual-SIM phone from major manufacturers. With the B7722, Samsung is carving a niche for itself by manufacturing such phone and providing it with a fairly large touchscreen. Above all, you can use both cards simultaneously, which is its main added value. As a feature phone the device also functions on par with the other offerings from the company, which means pretty decent already, and has a well-sized 3.2” screen. Thus, if you are in the market to replace those two bulging holsters on your belt housing your work phone, and the phone with the family plan, the Samsung B7722 is your piece. We can't guarantee that it will easily replace your slim and light smartphone, though, despite the fact that Samsung is charging a smartphone price for this one from what we saw here and there.
Looking around for alternatives of the Samsung B7722, we notice a few dual-SIM phones like the LG GX500, or the WM6.5-powered GIGABYTE GSmart S1205. The GSmart is actually a better stop if you need a smartphone with 2 SIM cards. However, if that's not the case, the Samsung B7722 is still a pretty good choice for the 2 SIM fans out there.
