Samsung SGH-T719 Review

Samsung SGH-T719

Posted: , by PhoneArena Team



Like other telephones of the same manufacturer (T519 and T629), the T719 has a very fast response and working with it is instantaneous without any delays whatsoever while moving in the menu. Not being a smartphone, it did not ‘crash’ during our test – unlike Blackberry Pearl for example.
Unfortunately, as opposed to the latter, T719 has a very low performance as a phone, despite boasting to be a ‘Blackberry device’. Its signal reception is very weak and even at a slightly worse coverage area there is the chance that the device may loose the signal and thus be rendered unusable. In our standard test it showed the poorest results so far, scoring only 2 out of 10.

The sound quality during conversation is not up to the level, necessary for a business phone, either. In fact it is not enough for any normal phone. Sound volume is very low and you may not be able to hear your partner even in an environment that is not quite noisy. This feature is enhanced by the fact that its voice is very monotonous and unclear because of the poor sound reproduction. The other side can hear you in a very similar way – unreal sound and low to medium volume level.


Unfortunately we did not turn into admirers of T719 at all. Having used Pearl we hoped for a lot more from this telephone as well but our expectations were not met. Its size is quite big, the plastic body does not have an attractive design, and despite their enormity the software buttons are hard and even unpleasant to touch. The telephone is stable and fast but features limited functions and has a very poor performance with regard to signal reception and sound quality.
