Samsung E370 Review
Review: September 2006.
The Samsung E370 is a beautiful mid-range camera phone in Samsung's
now-classic slider design. It's one of the smallest and lightest phones
in its class and also one of the lightest slide phones available. The
design is very practical, with the slider enabling a large screen and
a good size keypad to be fitted into a small overall device. It looks
great and is available in a choice of six colours, including pink for
girly-girls and black for blokey-blokes.
The E370 has a fantastic 1.3 megapixel camera which produces excellent
results, and with an LED flash you can take pictures after dark - just
don't expect the quality of a dedicated digital camera (it's a phone
after all!) There's also a video camera which records in MPEG4 format.
The display is average for its class. It's a TFT screen, but with just
65k colours and a relatively low resolution - this is probably its weakest
feature when comparing with similarly priced phones.
The music player is very good and supports MP3, AAC and AAC+ formats.
Don't expect this to replace your iPod, because it's not in the same
league, but it's good for listening to a few songs while waiting for
the bus. With 40 Mbytes of memory available, you should be able to store
about a dozen songs. There's no option to plug in a memory card unfortunately.
Connectivity options are good - Bluetooth 2.0 and USB, and fast internet
connections are possible via EDGE. A speakerphone is built into the
phone, and there's also a voice memo recorder. Java games are supplied
with the phone and can also be downloaded. Battery life is good.
There's very little to dislike about the E370. It's Samsung's best
mid-range phone and is proving to be very popular. Now replaced by the
Samsung E390, which offers the additional
benefits of a memory card, quad band and an improved LCD display.
Features of the Samsung E370 include:
- 1.3 megapixel camera with LED flash and 5x digital zoom
- Video camera (MPEG 4 format)
- Display: TFT, 65,536 colours, 128 x 160 pixels
- Music player (MP3, AAC and AAC+ formats)
- 40-voice polyphonic ringtones
- Voice memo recorder
- Messaging: SMS, MMS, email (POP3, SMTP, IMAP4)
- Java games
- Personal organiser functions
- Photo caller ID (1,000 phone book entries)
- Memory: 40 Mbytes
- Connectivity: Bluetooth 2.0, USB
- WAP 2.0, GPRS Class 10, EDGE
- Size: 86 x 43 x 20 mm
- Weight: 85g
- Talktime: 7.5 hours
- Battery standby: up to 315 hours

Just because one phone's screen is cracked doesnt mean they all will,
ive had mine for 3 months with no problems, i find it strange they are
not replacing it if its under warranty, u should get on to samsung directly
they may be able to do something. Ps, o2 are useless, take it from me
Reviewed by Sarah from England on 15th Nov 2006
I bought this phone just last week and already I'm disappointed. At
first it seemed fine, but just a couple of days ago I noticed a black
mark in the corner of the screen which really shocked me as I had been
taking great care with my phone. I took it back to the shop and to my
shock they said I could not get it repaired or replaced as it had a
crack inside the screen which they blamed me for. I was very angry at
this as I had a warranty so they should have either replaced or repaired
it. So if you are looking to get this phone I advice you to think again.
By the way I am with o2.

I thought it would be hard to find a phone that equals in quality as
the D500, and i have finally found it. Easy to use, and navigate through
the menus. Ok, so it comes with Chelsea pictures, but they can be removed
to make free space. The Ringtones are quite good, but you can use Full
Songs as Ringtones which is a bonus. Quite a light phone, and fits in
the pocket without feeling chunky and uncomfortable. Looks good to.
The slide feels alot stronger then that of (example) Nokia 6111, which
is quite flimsy. 5 Stars for this great phone!

I think this phone is a great purchase. I recieved it about 3 months
ago and I havn't had any problems with it. It has a stunning design,
but is slightly uncomfortable to put to your ear as it has two levels,

Very impressed with it so far. Bluetooth pairing to a Jabra headset
was no problem, but I am disappointed that there are no voice tags for
handsfree calling. www.samsung.com
has sample sounds and graphics and downloadable software, this includes
USB drivers, PC Sync software and an image editor. I am waiting for
a USB cable in order to check the rest of the facilities. Thanks to
all here who have provided tips about the phone settings.

My E370 crashed while I was uploading contacts from my PC. Now back
with Samsung for repair. Before that I thought it was OK (if a bit "toy-like"
compared to phones I've had before). Annoying things are (i) the display
goes completely blank when not in use (ii) comes pre-loaded with sounds/pictures
you can't delete (I don't really want pictures of Chelsea players on
my phone thanks) (iii) you can't customise or turn off some of the confirm/error

I received mine as a replacement buy back from Vodafone but it broke
down after two days. It looks to be overpriced with a small and cheap
plastic feel to it and (not surprisingly perhaps) pictures of Chelsea
players included. Decidedly lacking in class. The supplied ring-tone
is embarrassing but has a good vibration to it. Perhaps this is the
phone of the famous terrace chant - "One man and his phone went to bed
with Ashley" The phone can be improved immeasurably by adding a screensaver
of Gallas in his nice new red and white shirt.

Wow!! Bought this handset the other day as i was impressed with my brothers
D600. Apart from memory size and a slow refresh rate in video camera
mode it's as good as if not better. Keeping in mind it's a phone and
not and MP3 playerv or Video camera this is the best handset I've had
to date(believe me, i go thru phones like you wouldn't believe). Only
problem is, I can't set it up on the O2 active site. The drop down menu
reveals lots of Samsung models except the E370. Can anyone help? I called
O2 but I think I may have spoken to someone on their first day. That

Bought my phone a few weeks ago on Orange PAYG. Have now got a letter
G on the top display which no-one at Samsung or my service provider
can tell me what it's for, so it has to stay there, even though I would
rather remove it. Also needed a phone which gives me a delivery report
on texts, rather than me having to put RCT on all my messages, but Orange
have tried and told me they can't do it, even though this is shaded
out on my text settings. Surely this could be activated to suit the
individual, or maybe it's just a service provider problem? Has anybody
else found a way round this? Other than that, the phone seems OK, although
not sure whether to return to my Nokia phone or not, purely for the

I bought this phone on O2 Payg and love it! It's small, easy to use

life is good. Only downside so far is bluetooth is a bit of a struggle,
the keys are quite close together and completely flat (difficult to
speed text) and you can't turn GPRS off (extra battery life). Overall
though awesome phone highly recommended.

'empty'. This must be because his numbers are saved to his SIM card.
If he goes into phonebook - management and saves all the numbers to

I've had various phones over the years, and this is the cutest yet.
It has the cute factor that the Motorola V3688 had when that first came
out (the first phone designed to fit in the Levi's 501 change pocket).
Memory: Deleting all the junk that came with it I've got 43M free. So
drop your bitrate, and you should get a full album (or even two) on
there. Signal: With the same sim in it, it's within 1/2 a bar of a Motorola
V3i. Auto lock: I which it was a three way option with a Lock everything
always when closed. I somehow seem to manage to unlock phones in my
jacket pocket, although I've not had the E370 long enough to find out.
(Better than some Motorola flips which don't lock the camera button
when closed. How many pictures have I had to delete of the inside of
my pocket). Battery life: Not many many calls, but will probably last
a the best part of a week. (My home get 1 signal bar if I'm lucky, and
kills my mate's Motorola V975 in a day on standby). Display: Clear and
bright, crying out for a big retro clock with hands in standby, but
the calendar is useful.

the d500 are better and they are right but not by mutch i think it is
a great deal for money and you get all the essentials and more

of u just have to change it in the settings.try reading manual!secondly
camera button on side of phone does work and if u want to save sent
messages go to the save and send option instead of send only,hardly
difficult.overall phones very good it just lack memory if you waint
to put loads of songs on it

Brought this phone just after is came out to replace my Samsung A300
(yes I know it was old) All I want in a phone is to be able to make
calls, text and for it to fit in my pocket. This phone does exactly
that and has the bonus of the camera and games. The camera button on
mine works unlike others have stated. I don't understand people who
want their phone to do everything including the dishes its a phone and
a good one at that.

First of all i am not going into detail about this phone. I have used
a D500 and a D600 and found both phones to be good except for one thing,
the price on release. Not so for this phone, it is very reasonably priced
and has everything i need, especially considering it is small just makes
it a good buy.Lastly on the main downside on the phone is the volume,
but i have found in general most samsungs are like this and hope samsung
themselves with deal with this issue.

This mobile phone really has everything what a nowaday mobile phone
should have: its small size so it fits everywhere, enough memory, quality
camera and a fantastic design, moreover slide phones are very handy.
I must admit that it has a ew flaws: sms is not autosaved and i think
it even cannot be set to be, while batteries are being charged the screen
is turned on which is not so handy if you're charging it where you sleep.
Overall, it is a very quality mobile phones with a few flaws which are
honestly negligible. I reccomend it!

They only thing good about the phone is it's smalliness. They software
is wack, texting is difficult, no speaker phone(if there is i cant find

I got this phone around a week ago. I am very happy with it, as I mainly
use it for texting it is great, wasn't too pleased with the memory but
its no trouble. It didn't come with a PC cable which was a bit of a
bummer as I had to buy a dongle instead. Happy with the quality of the
overall phone, it is my 1st slide phone and i am extremly happy. Ringtones
are a downside but you can buy loads more frree from the Samsung website
if you join!!!! Very handy size and weight! Flash on camera is excellent!
I havn't really explored the internet much yet but it seems ok. I really
love this phone, anyone considering to buy it for fun and design should
go for it!

Fantastic phone.. Just got it today, so my findings are limited yet.
Size, feel, look and navigation trough the menu is excelent. Due to
the short period of time I've had the phone, I havn't found out if the
battery has gotten better since N330, but everything else seems to have
improoved. I've only found one flaw yet,- it seems to be very sensitive
when writing messages, if you havn't fully let go of one button, your
next letter will not appear. Not something that matters alot, but still
something thats worth mentioning. Hope its to some use for somebody
out there, altough its very short.

This phone is great and the memory isn't that bad either, it's good
that you can at least store 5 songs on it... and if your moaning about
that like a 5 year old i suggest you but an mp3 player. The picture
quality is good and the ringtones arn't so bad but you can always use
your mp3 for the ringtones.This phone has got loads of features and
good addicting games. So if you are considering buying this phone then
but it... don't let these reviews put you off

first of all, i never give anythin top marks, apart from things like
the buggati veyron. got this phone today as a free upgrade, and already
i prefer it from my old samsung z500. the first thing i thought was
great was the size and weight, it really is so small, when i get it
out my pocket it feels so much smaller than any other phone. camera
is good, ringtones are bit poor, but just get some via bluetooth and
you're sorted. the sound quality is not superb, but clear and loud,
so for the size, its very good. samsung call this a middle market phone,
it hasnt got the best camera or memory, but if your looking for a small
fun and functional phone then this is a good choice. this is my third
samsung, and i am very pleased with it. i had the z500 and the e700,
and i think this is my favourite so far. if your lookin for a really
good phone though, with loads of features and one that works really
well, sony ericsson is for you, but often the prices are higher.

I purchased this phone because of its small size but unfortunately it
has a number of problems. * Speaker volume is to low for taking calls.
* Once a T9 word has been written it cannot be changed later, it must
be deleted and rewritten. * Sent text messages are not automatically
saved. * Alarms do not turn on the phone if it is turned off. * Only
the morning call alarm has a snooze facility. * The conversion feature
has the wrong number in for UK gallons to litres. * When charging the
backlight remains on constantly, this is not good if you charge in your
bedroom. I hope that Samsung will release new software for the phone
that solves theses problems but until then I could not recommend this

First off, this ISN'T a bad phone, its just a good phone with stupid
flaws... 1) the 'camera button' on the side doesnt work...AT ALL...
so its kinda pointless even being there. 2)No option to automatically
save outgoing messages in a 'sent folder' like on my previous phone
(Samsung D500). 3) Reception is NOWHERE near as good as with the D500
- in my room it can't find a network, yet the D500 has full signal...
4) Text messages take an age to receive (probably because of poor reception?).
5) Cannot assign caller ID's - there is an option to do this, but upon
attempting it, a message saying 'empty' is shown... despite the fact
there is a picture there (I have tried with 8 different pictures, both
taken on phone AND sent to it via bluetooth). 6) Can only have 14 characters
on names in phonebook... 14 characters is NOTHING if surnames are to
be included. Aside from these 6 points (I will no doubt find more...),
this is a good phone. BUT, it isn't a patch on the D500 I have been
using over the last 12months. As such, I will be reverting back to the
D500 and probably sell the E370 on ebay once I have got it unlocked
If you want a phone which is TINY, then this is for you. If you want
a phone that WORKS, then stay clear!

Compared to the Motorola's I've foolishly subjected myself to in the
past, I can't really complain about the Samsung E370. It's small, light
and compact, the memory on it is far superior to my old phone and it
sends and recieves texts (Beats my old Motorola hands down.) The memory
isn't huge though; stores over 200 texts and I've got 8 full length
songs on it and still have memory over. The camera is fairly decent
quality; it's not as good as some of the other Samsung's I've seen,
especially compared to the D-00 range but it's pretty good. Only major
complain I have is that you don't have an option for vibrate and ring
simultaneously for incoming calls, which is a huge pain to me because
by the time you've either heard it or felt the vibrations the calls
disconnected or rang thru to voice mail; only having one at a time is
pretty awkward. Aside that, the E370 is a great phone, I've had it a
few months now and really can't find any major problems with it. The
texting is very simple; a bit confusing if you've sworn by nokia for
predictive text simply because the buttons are in the wrong place, but
once you've figured out the differences it's a piece of cake. Would
definately recommend it!

A cool little phone in a number of aspects but not many. First of all,
it is not very heavy and fits quite easily into your pocket or handbag;
secondly, the camera is superb for taking pictures and recording and
it looks great. However, this phone is let down on its functionality
as a phone. Sound quality is poor. When recieving a call it is not vey
loud and the vibrate is quite soft even when they are at the highest.
Also I found the keypad quite difficult to use and sore on the fingers
when texting. Also sending a text is not the easier having to go into
drop down after drop down menu just to save and send a msg. It doesn't
help that when sending a mass text msg that you can't tick off entries
in your phone book but you having to come in and out for each person.
My final point is avoid this if your liable to dropping your phone etc.

I am very disapointed with this phone, battery is week, and the worst
thing of this phone is that people which you are calling can not hear
you loud and clear. Other things like camera are good, but this is phone
and the primary thing is that you can hear, and the people which you
are calling can hear you, but with this phone this is very bad. Nokia
is much much better, and im going back to Nokia 6230i.

This phone reminds me of that beautiful person you always wanted to
get then when you do it turns out they are no good in bed. While getting
a new phone usually takes a breaking in period I have found that this
phone has some good points but has more bad points and it is these that
stick in the mind. Firts of all, the good points. it looks the part,
very stlylish and sleek as well as being lightweight, ideal for placing
in your handbag. The camera is great with superb picture quality and
battery life is excellent.Where this phone fails for me is in its funtionality.
The instruction booklet was useless. It takes forever to text a message,
having to go through numerous drop down boxes and it doesn't automatically
save sent text messages. Also the vibrate and sound quality is very
weak and I missed numerous calls due to this which is very annoying.
Another, thing you can't change the message tone so your stuck with
9 tunes that samsung give. Sound quality is poor on the mp3 with so
ngs I transferred sounding substanially muted and muffled. It is also
not the most robust phone I've ever had and only survived one major
drop before the LCD screen finally gave in. The alarm does not go off
when the phone is turned off which is a bit of bummer. When speaking
to people on the phone as well they've complained about an echo which
can be very annoying for them. All in all this phone is style over substance.

This phone is absolutely outstanding - much much better than my last
Nokia phone. The camera is great, and I personally find the memory fine.
It's enough for a decent collection of photos and a few songs at least!
The menu is really quick and the skins are attractive. The buttons are
fiddly at first to text with but after a while you get used to it. The
battery life is quite good, lasting usually about 4 days which is good
enough for me. The only bad point would probably be that since I am
on O2, I can't change the speed-dial numbers but that's not really to
do with the phone.
