Hands-on with Samsung F700

8
1
We got our hands on with Samsung SGH-F700V. ā€œVā€ on the back means that this one is made for Vodafone and it is slightly personalized version of the original one.

It is an interesting GSM (900/1800/1900 MHz) with 3G UMTS/HSDPA (2100MHz) support, large 3.22 inch touch widescreen which definitely attracts attention. Below it there is just one hardware button which makes it remind of the iPhone, but unlike it the F700 has side-sliding form factor - just slide to the right and a QWERTY keyboard shows. Besides that you have plenty of multimedia features: 3 megapixel camera with autofocus and flashlight, advanced music player, 3.5 mm stereo jack for standard headphones, build-in stereo speakers and Bluetooth stereo.

The Samsung F700 is the first phone coming with the Croix interface. It is the one Samsung will use in all of its non-smart phones with touch-sensitive display, like in the Giorgio Armani phone for example, which uses the same one but with personalized color scheme.

Maybe you've noticed that when compared to our first photos from 3GSM show back in February, the F700 has changed in some aspects. The camera resolution stripped from 5 to 3-megapixels and the dimensions changed, but the keyboard is now in 4 rows and there are stereo speakers on the front.

Expect our full review of Samsung SGH-F700 with lots of pictures and tests soon.
