The Samsung J700 – Something For The Budget Market

Samsung wouldn’t want to be accused of not catering for the budget market with its new array of phones, and in the understated J700 has found something to appeal to those who aren’t bothered about the sorts of snazzy features found elsewhere.

It’s another slide-phone, a design choice that perhaps suggests that flip-phones are on their way out, sports a 2″ display and adopts a similarly sleek and glossy style to much of the rest of its range. It’s solidly built though, with a metal frame and is impressively slim at under 10mm thick. You’ll still find a music player, FM radio and rather meagre 1.3MP camera built in, and there’s a microSD card slot for upping the internal capacity. You’ll find tri-band GSM connectivity and Bluetooth 2.0 built in, but no HSDPA for fast data access.

It’s not a patch on the high-end models from the range but for a budget phone we think it looks pretty impressive, certainly good enough to fool the naked eye from a distance anyway.

The J700 should hit the market in March and is set to retail for around 130 euros.

  6. I bloody love fones don’t you? I mean you can ring, text, take pictures and now even video! It’s just amazing! My Nokia 3210 brings a tear to my eye! Thanx guys xxx

  7. the reviews say 10mb internal memory ben but i’m not to sure as i haven’t purchased mine yet. But you can use a memory card. If you like i can provide you with a website that has really good valur on them compared to high street and other sites. I will have to check my other computer’s favoutires for it. But for my dig camera a year ao i bought a 2gb mermory card for £16 which had i bought else where i would have been paying about £40

  8. hey there im considering buying this phone. Does it have any faults? also does anyone have a digital camera that they can take a picture and forward it to me cause i know online pictures never look the same in colour in real and the phone shop is out of them for me to view

  9. To confirm, teh phone should be supplied with a cd which has the USB cable drive on it as well as the suite of programs that is used for uploading / downloading images, music etc, etc.
    It is also supplied with the necessary USB cable to connect to the computer.
    If it’s not in the box when bought new, then complain!
    It should be there.

I’m sure it did tho?? Please help!!!!
