Call records shows you a history of who did you call, who called you etc. Up to 20 numbers are kept in the Missed, Incoming and Outgoing calls.

Camera
Samsung E715 / E710 comes equipped with VGA (640 x 480 pixels) digital camera with flash. The picture quality was on the average side - better then Motorola V600 and worse then Nokia 3650. The user can change the brightness and supposedly use digital zoom. I could not find what key combination activated the zoom. In addition, there are several digital effect supported - like Gray, Negative, Sephia, Sketch and Emboss. Different frames can also be selected.

What surprised me was the Multi-shot functionality - allowing you to snap multiple picture very fast one after the other. This can be done at High Speed or Normal speed. At High Speed the camera snapped around 6 pictures in 1 second - very impressive. In normal mode it took around 3 seconds to take 6 pictures. Picture rotation and self-timer capability are also available

If you want to take a self-photo, you can close the phone's flip and press and hold the camera key for 2-3 seconds. Doing so will activate the external OLED display and you will be able to see yourself on it.

Initially, I was very skeptical about benefits from the built-in flash. First let me say that it is not a real flash - it is just a very bright LED. Nevertheless, in dark situations it really helps if the object is in close proximity to your phone. The other use of the flash is as a flashlight - it is turned on my pressing and holding the volume rocket switch. The phone has around 1.4 Mb of user available memory, which translates to around 40 high pictures at the maximum resolution.

See the pictures above and judge for yourself.
