Performance:

We have absolutely no remarks or second thoughts regarding the performance of the Samsung Ultra S S7370. We didn’t encounter slowdowns or lagging. The loud sound on our end got us flabbergasted during our first talk. We had to turn it down to its mid setting to get loudness to a bearable level. In-call quality fell out to be superb both ways and we had no problem at all catching onto things being said. Oh, we almost forgot the loudspeaker. It also packs a lot of punch and delivers good sound quality. We just wish the audio was less sharp. Now, how long will you be able to keep spreading about rumors with you pals, before the phone starts raising hell over a flat battery? As the manufacturer has officially indicated, it won´t be long indeed. The battery is rated at 4 hours continuous talk time, but will keep the phone alive for around 14 days if you just leave it on a shelf.


Conclusion:

Now, it´s about time we passed a final verdict on the appealing Samsung Ultra S. It is functional indeed, software doesn´t crash or lags, phone performs admirably on the multimedia front and delivers great in-call quality. Now, we´re not being difficult, but there is a little something we don´t like. Friction of the upper against the lower part of the slider is far from being unnoticeable when the phone is being opened or closed and the mechanism gives out a rubbing noise.

The Samsung Ultra S S7350 hasn´t hit the shelves yet, so its success will ultimately depend on its retail price. We do not have any doubts to recommend it to anyone, unless it comes with a steeper price tag. Still, keep in mind there are many other cool multimedia phones that look great and are not expensive, with both the Samsung Pixon and LG Renoir among them.
