Samsung F700 review
C urrently mobile phones are used for a lot more than calling and sending text messages alone. Smartphones are gradually catching up with sales of mobile phones. The difference between a smartphone and a regular mobile phone is mainly found in the more extensive E-mail and Internet functionalities on the smartphone. The operation system of a smartphone is usually based on Microsoft Mobile, Symbian or PalmOS. However, Samsung have chosen equipping the F700 with their own operating system. This option may be considered both positive and negative. Positive because the system is tailor-made for this device and negative because synchronizing might be more complicated and installing external software might be more difficult.

Samsung F700 smartphone design
The Samsung F700 smartphone comes with a Vodafone simlock. This immediately is obvious from observing the package; a red and white box carrying the Vodafone's logos. Standard included with the Samsung F700 are a data cable, a headset, a battery charger, user's guide, software and an extra back cover. On the phone itself there is also a small picture of a Vodafone logo visible on the front. Furthermore the front side is equipped with only one button and a small digital camera for making video calls, besides the large touchscreen. The full keyboard appears when you slide the Samsung F700 open. It looks neat and it is beautiful and well-lit in the evening for flawless reading. You can remove the back cover completely and as mentioned before, a second version is included in the package. This is very convenient if one of the covers is damaged or if you prefer a shiny of matte cover.

Samsung SGH-F700 Touchscreen
The main feature of the Samsung F700 phone is its full touchscreen. The monitor measures 3.2 inch and is capable of reproducing 260,000 colours. Touchscreens are beautiful and handy but one type of touchscreen or another can make a whole lot of difference. Personally I get really annoyed when a touchscreen does not respond like it is supposed to, namely fast and fluent. Using the touchscreen of the Samsung F700 wasn't too bad. The screen responds well and touching the screen will make the phone vibrate slightly for confirmation of the touch. In daylight, in bright sunshine, it is not always possible to read the monitor that easily but this also happens with other phones and is not specifically related to a touchscreen.
