Samsung E715 / E710 reviewSamsung SGH-E715 5
The GUI is the same as in the most recent Samsung phones - very interactive with an animation for almost any action or condition. The whole menu system is consistent and very easy to use. Once in a menu, every sub-menu option has a number next to it. Pressing the number enters this particular sub-menu. I have found this feature to be very time saving. For example, once in Text Messages, I can press the number 3 to enter the Write New sub-menu which saves me three clicks.
Phone Book is one of the most used menus and for that reason is very important. All recent Samsungs have very easy to use Phone Book.
Feature that should not be left out from any phone is the search capability. Lack of search feature was my main gripe in Motorola V600 review. Samsung on the other hand, has made it very easy for the consumer and placed option Search to be the first in the Phone Book. Very helpful when you try to find someone within the 250 phonebook entries I have.
Caller Groups are also supported. They allow you to organize your Phonebook entries in groups so that the phone alerts you in a specific way when a person from one of your groups calls you. There is total of ten groups and every contact can be added to a group. Then different ring tone, graphic and SMS tone are assigned to the different groups - making it easy to distinguish who is trying to reach you without having to look at the caller ID screen.
The Speed Dial option allows you to dial a contact by just pressing and holding a key.
The E715 also supports multiple numbers per contact. You can have
What I didn't see was a Copy All function - allowing you to copy your entire contact structure from the SIM to the Phone memory, or vice versa.
