Samsung D415 review (SGH-D415)
Samsung has never been a RF (signal reception) king, but the good news is the D415 does better job compared to other Samsung phones.
Battery life has also been extended compared to the e715 model I tested. D415 would last me for several days with my normal usage, while the e715 had to be recharged every 1.5 days.
The sound reproduced was clear but not loud enough. Several times I found myself unable to hear well the other party and had to discontinue the conversation and move to more quiet surroundings. On the other hand, my other party was able to hear me loud and clear.
Samsung SGH-D415 lacks many essential features that should have been incorporated into it. Just having innovative design with immaculate screen is not enough. What should be a part of any mid-range device is voice dialing and speakerphone at least. Still picture quality improvement, extended battery life and better signal reception are moves into the right direction, but the D415's movie mode is just completely useless.
