Samsung S6700 Review


Welcome to the Samsung S6700 review. The version we sampled was the Samsung S6700T.  This model was released in late 2009 as what can be described as mid-range 3G capable ‘feature’ mobile phone for the Telstra network.

The S6700 is a very interesting phone from Samsung.  It has all the features of what would be described as a high end mobile phone by the end of 2008 yet it is sold as a pre-paid package by some phone networks. It is a traditional slider phone without a touch screen and uses the ‘old’ Samsung OS but the processing power and features like A-GPS and a larger than standard screen although 240×320 pixels make this a compelling choice if your after a very good phone as a pre-paid.

We describe it as a mid-range phone because of the shiny plastic and chunky nature of its construction.  That said it is overall very solid will wear well and certainly better than other more delicate sliders with similar features.

The OS works fast and without any significant lags!  We where very impressed with with how well and reliably it all worked.  It is a real alternative to Nokia models since it has a nice relative big and clear screen.

Overall another very good phone from Samsung.  It will do everything you could want in terms of calls and text however the lack of a QWERTY keypad limits it’s appeal as an email solution for obvious reasons.  Clearly you can receive emails but your replies could be very short! If you want everything and email then the Nokia E63 is the only one we can recommend. When compared to other Samsung pre-paid packages, the S6700 blows them away in terms of speed.  The F480 for example although it has a touch screen is a snail when compared.
