Samsung Diva S7070 Review
Unfortunately, the Samsung Diva S7070 does not offer exceptional in-call quality. During the tests, our callers sounded muted and voice clarity was plagued by excessive environmental noise that did not prevent us from being able to understand really, but proved to be most annoying indeed. People on the other end were not particularly happy either and stated they would have been unable to tell who called them if they had to rely on recognizing the voice only. It´s a good thing the handset shows you who the caller is.

According to the manufacturer, the battery is marvellously robust. It should be able to provide up to 10 hrs of continuous talk time and keep your handset operational for about 33 days in stand-by. We couldn’t test the battery after several full charging cycles, but all told, it´s true the handset doesn’t give up easily.

As a whole, there is nothing brilliant about the Samsung Diva... except for its spectacular, pearly back and „diamond” on the front side. The outward appearance of the handset is supposed to be its major strength, but all ladies we polled claimed they didn’t like it. Still, there is no accounting for taste and everyone has their own likes and dislikes, so we won´t pass any judgement here.

In terms of overall functionality, the Diva is pretty similar to the Samsung Corby S3650. This means the device delivers all the basics and should be able to meet the needs of people opting for a feature phone. Unfortunately, the Samsung Diva S7070 is substantially more expensive than the Corby, which does not make it irresistibly attractive from a financial standpoint and neither does it bode well for its future. Ultimately, we consider the Samsung Lindy M5650 and LG Pop GD510 better alternatives, unless you happen to be totally, utterly, fatally in love with its looks.
