Eten M800 Review
Performance:

M800 is neither the fastest, nor the slowest smartphone on the market. Although it has 500 MHz processor, it is by no means as quick as the iPAQ 614 or even the Touch Cruise. We suggest you clean your RAM memory occasionally, since otherwise the phone gets slower.

In the system performance test, using SPB Benchmark, the M800 is on the bottom of the list, right below the X800. As it can be seen, in the CPU test it performed well, but it didn’t so in the rest of the tests.

We are slightly disappointed by the sound during a conversation, because the outgoing quality and the incoming volume are just average. If it is noisy around you, you may not hear what the other person is saying, however, they sound very realistically and clear, but with a slight background noise. In contrast, your interlocutor will hear you with great strength, but average quality: your voice will sound monotonous, muffled and not very realistic.

The M800’s battery is rated for only 150 hours of standby and 4 hours of talk time. Both indexes are below the average for devices of such class.


Conclusion:

Is the M800 revolutionary device – definitely not. Is it worth upgrading from X800 – only if you really want QWERTY (there’s nothing else new). Is it worth getting? It depends, if you are on the market for a (Windows Mobile) smartphone, the M800 is still a nice device. Although it is neither the fastest, nor the prettiest (and yes, we don’t like the capacitive keys!) it is one of the few out there with a high-res (VGA) display. Of course, it has some negative sides, but it is a matter of compromise. Overall, the TyTN II is better, but only if you could live with the nowadays mediocre QVGA display. We leave the decision to you.

Pros

  • Display with VGA resolution
  • Worldwide 3G
  • Sirf Star III GPS chipset

Cons

  • Capacitive touch keys
  • Low quality of the camera
