Samsung Haven Review
The two main issues we had with the Samsung Knack U310 were its poor signal reception, as it would often times drop down to 0 bars and say ‘searching for service’, and the voice distortion we heard when the earpiece volume was turned up to high. We are glad to report that the Samsung Haven U320 does better in both departments, as we had 2-3 signal bars showing and without it saying ‘searching for service’, and the earpiece doesn’t sound as distorted at high volumes, though the voice quality still sounds a bit muffled. When tried next to the LG Clout VX8370, the voices were noticeably clearer and didn’t sound muffled when using it.

The included 1000mAh battery is rated to provide the Haven up to 5 hours of talk time or 14 days of standby time on a full charge. Our testing revealed 4 hours talk time on a full charge, which is the same as on the Knack.


Conclusion:

The Samsung Haven U320 does a better job at being a basic and easy-to-use phone than the Knack U310, as the signal reception issues have been solved and the voice quality is a bit better. We like the large keyboard, but wish the display were higher resolution and would come with at least 1.3MP camera. Overall, the Haven is an OK device for those looking to just use it as a basic phone, with occasionally sending and receiving messages. But if you’re looking for some added features, then you may want to consider the LG Clout VX8370.

Software on tested phone: DC15
