Samsung E710 review
| ||Review: July 2004
In a nutshell: Adds a video recorder and a camera flash to the E700 specification.
The Samsung E710 is a variation on the E700, adding a video recording capability, a voice memo recorder and a camera flash for nightime shots. To economise a little, the E710 doesn't have MMS (just EMS instead), and it has a greyscale external screen. This spec seems slightly odd to us, but that's the way it is!
Instead of a shared memory pool, the E710 has dedicated memory for each function: 700KB for ringtones, 700KB for wallpaper and screensavers, 512KB for Java applications. A serial port is available for connection to a PC.
The E710 has now been replaced by the E720.
Samsung E710 features include:
- Internal antenna
- VGA camera (640 x 480 pixels), 5x digital zoom, photo effects, multishot, LED flash
- Video recording (up to 25 seconds)
- TFT LCD internal screen (65,536 colours, 128 x 160 pixels)
- External screen: 96 x 64 pixels / 16 greyscale
- 40-voice polyphonic ringtones (25 embedded, plus downloadable)
- SMS (with learning T9, max. 50 storage)
- Wallpaper & screensaver
- WAP 1.2
- Games: 3 standard games, 4 Java games
- Infrared modem, PC serial cable
- Phonebook (max. 2000 entries)
- Scheduler, Calendar, To do list, Clock, Worldtime, Alarm (Daily/Once/weekly), Auto switch on (when phone is off), Currency converter, Calculator
- Voice memo
- Vibration alert
- Dual Band (900/1800 Mhz)
- Size: 90 X 45 X 23 mm
- Weight: 85g
- Talk time: 3 hours (standard battery)
- Standby time: 110 - 180 hours (standard battery)

This was my second phone and boy was it worth the money, the only reason
I am buying a new phone now is due to the loss of it in recient months.
However, i shall always remember it for its brilliant camera and its
sheek style.The only draw back was the inefficient infrared which did
not work at all. Thank you samsung for giving me a fantastic two and
a half years!

ve crashed the mobile more than once as who have the mobile knows, this
mobile comes with two battreys and till now i had not changed the battrey,
and it is still working perfect its true and obviously that when comparing
the fetures of this samsung with a new samsung like the d 900.. the
e710 is zero... but at that timeit was amazing.. now a days after 3
teaqrs of hard work my samsung cxamera is 0 ... but well done samsung
for this mobile

This phone is okay for your average user. A major problem is the external
screen: It breaks a WAY too easily. And the memory for storing SMS is
too small: It gets full at 40-50 SMS according to what I see every day.
Voice quality is also a drawback: If there is any (like, two people
talking even) noise around, I can barely hear the person who I talk

I don't know if it's only my phone having some defects, but first of
all no vibration when ringing - except for one specific ringtone where
it works. The ringtones are so low that I hardly ever realize when my
phone's ringing. The screen is poor with vertical lines all over it.
Then - as a small gimmick - the Danish translation is extremely poor
too. Have also had problems about the phone switching of in the middle
of calls - eventhough there was still power on the battery. Must say
though, that the battery (besides the above problem) has been working
very well, and I haven't noticed a remarkable lifetime decrease. Oh
yeah, forgot to mention that the colours on the screen have "faded".
I'm hardly able to read my phonebook anymore. And finally it often happens
that people who receive texts from me are not able to read them due
to problems with my phone. Tried to contact Samsung but no luck explaining
the problems... Hmm, I wonder, since appearantly a lot of people experienced
exactly the same problems. No, this phone has never worked properly,
and now it's time to find something that actually works.

Right now i'm looking for a new phone because my current phone (this
E710) is not satisfactory. I bought this a long time ago but god knows
how i've put up with it. The camera is of a poor quality compared to
those out today and the recording feature is poor and not smooth at
all. I got my phone locked on Vodafone. Do not get thhis phone on Vodafone!
The interface is the worst i've ever seen. The colours on the interface
consist of: Blue, Black, White and Red. That's it. If this phone did
not have a camera feature, i would have kept my older phone! (Nokia
7210) All i want is a phone with a fairly nice interface, suitable features,
good camera ability and a good size and image. It doesn't have to be
great. But this E710. Locked on Vodafone it's an abomination. I can't
even save my friends emails.

Firstly you need the samsung firmware (that's the phone's software)
- if the phone was from vodafone then the firmware is their own and
it makes the phone absolutely dreadful. You can flash the samsung firmware
yourself if you have the correct data-cable and you google for the info
(or you can find everything you need to know on howardforums.com). Flashing
the firmware to the phone is a lot more straightforward than it seems
and with the samsung firmware it's a great phone - I prefer it to the
software on more recent samsungs, such as e800. The vodafone version
cripples it and looks damn ugly. It's designed to squeeze as much money
from you as possible so every menu offers to send you to the vodafone
live wap-site. It's also full of bugs - it crashed quite a few times
whilst writing texts. I'm back on orange now but with the same phone
(if you want to unlock it by the way you just need a couple of codes
which you can google for). The downside to the e710 though is its durability
- like others on here have mentioned mines developed banding on its
screen (how much longer it will last I don't know) and the rubber covers
over the power and headphone ports have disintegrated. I've had it a
year and a half. Probably not a good idea to buy one second hand. Getting
an e760 next - an updated version. The e7-series is by far the best
clamshell on the market.

If you like phones with games, a good camera and other cool features
do NOT get this phone. There are no games, the camera is junk, the zoom
is blurry and it's boring. I've only had the phone for a couple of months
and it won't let me make or recieve calls, which is a pain in the ass.
The battery life is extremely short, it scratches easily, and has a
small memory. this phone doesn't let you recieve sms messages and the
screen has different brightness lines.

Almost owned for a year now and got to say it started off well,but....
Could never get infrared to work with another phone. Crashed 3 times
whilst typing a message(using normal words,not like some of the rubbish
that gets typed here)and that meant I lost two games that I had downloaded
via Vodaphone,lost ringtones and just a plane restart needed. Icing
on the cake is that now the screen has develpoed a 'banding' type effect
on the internal screen but not noticeable when it displays a white background.
As a talk'n'text phone it's been fine and it's pretty lightweight with
a solid feel but I don't give it much longer in the screen stakes so
sold it for £20. And no,the phone has never been dropped.

When I first got this phone I was really chuffed. That didn't last long!!
On only the second day of use, the camera packed up and wouldn't take
any pictures. After a month of use, the screen had completely cracked
on the inside, no physical damage was obvious from the outside. The
battery time is pretty poor, as with all Samsungs. When you put the
phone onto vibrate as well as tone, the tone doesn't kick in for about
10 seconds of ringing. The menu's are confusing also. Luckily, I got
it for free, if I had to pay for it, I would have given it 0 stars!!

At first this phone rocked. Was a good upgrade from a nokia. Things
however were not going to go well from the start. Let me begin.... Software
problem meant I couldnt send photo's to my email account. Reseting the
phone to deal with the problem, I would lose all my photo's, not an
option! Random Turnings off. Connectivity. Well this phone is sold on
the fact you can connect it to your computer and transfer photos numbers
etc blah blah blah...... (should have gone with the nokia) Trying to
buy a data cable from Vodafone proved useless because they dont stock
them any more. You have to buy a E710 data cable only from vodafone
because its their phone spec, or what i can make out so far. Any help
would be great.( firstname.lastname@example.org ) Then the screen started fading
after a year of use. This was a very rapid change, from excilent to
very poor. (now completely white, unless you look at it from an obtuse
angle.) I cant really explain in words how much this phone has narked
me. People seem to get confused between the e700 and e710, Well they
look the same. Navy Vs Silver, no Flash, Flash. Actually very different
phones. Apparently not noted by the sales attendant in a t-mobile shop
when i purchased an E700 data cable. I admit this was partly my fault,
but seriously I cant write much more about this phone because I am going

I lost the volume and recieved a new one then after another 3 months
it decided to start turnign itself on and off at very inappropriate
times. I was absolutely appauled with it's behaviour but have decided
that after last time I sent it backto Vodafone and tehy kept my spare
battery that I shoudl wait and upgrade it-this is what I am in the process

Well what can i say? Ive just bought this phone and i am having fun with it. Though im now wondering weather mdae the right choice. It does have brilliant looks and a great feel to i, so its a def fashion statement. But it seriously lacks in some features such as bluetooth (specially for a new phone like this) and infrared (which it has but seems not to work) and a short battery life. Depends really weather you want featues or good looks. It does stil on the plus side can take video which is decent. Overall, fairly good phone, but it really needs bluetooth and infrared (to work)

I've had the E700 for 8mnts, it's gr8 thou limited in some aspects,
like infrared dat is useless and no bluetooth. I didn't mind dat the
fone can't didn't have a flash for night shots but could hav been nice.
Now that it has bn revived and improved, it makes the E710 a better
option. I'm not crazy about where the flash and that green-lookin object
is located, but then again... where wud it go!? I think email, and an
option to send things via infra-red, and if you could customize the
menus into smaller letters, and an option for themes and downloadable
themes could have been cool features. It would have been a really go
wild fone. I'm kinda glad that they've decided to do away with dat stupid
265 colour screen and replace with something that's down to earth. Doesn't
matter that it doesn't send MMS coz here this feature is network locked
anyway, meaning you can't send MMS across networks. I think b4 i decide
to change i would like to see it first hand. If it feel like the one
i own now i'll just wait for a better model. But i think it sounds cool!

A brilliant flip-phone. Unlike many others out there, this flip phone
is small, a cool shape and doesnt feel cheap toy-like plastic that gives
a dangerous sounding crunch when its 'locked' open. It has everythin
you will need except bluetooth. The ariel is great and the screen and
camera are both very high resolution. Only problem is hitting the hang-up
key instead of 3 when typing a text message as all the buttons are flat
to each other and the message is gone forever :( But you get used to
that threat :P Oh and you cant turn off the camera sound - but I guess
that is good to stop those damned pedos in their tracks! Although not
so good for 16 yr old male ;)

All you can say is wow what a fone packed full of features ive had it
for a few months now and im not bored yet! The only lacking department
is that the phone lacks bluetooth which would place it even further
ahead of the competition

Compared to Nokia or SonyEricsson, Samsung just have't understood the
user interface. Everything takes twice as many button presses as I'd
expect. It takes video, but so far I've failed to find anyway to send
the video to another phone or PC, so unless you enjoy watching a 1"
screen, it is pointless. Infrared is also lacking any functionality.
Yes, my PC detects there is a Infrared connection, but I can't use it
to back up contacts, add or remove photos/video or anything else. I
haven't tried using my phone as a GSM modem, but if this is the only
function of infrared, I don't need it. It doesn't remember your user
settings for any game. So the sound is always on until you go into options
and switch it off. Not good if you want a sneeky game somewhere you
aren't meant to. On the plus side, it is small and has no ariel to brake
in your pocket. I'm already looking forward to my next phone.

Hey, I'll have to say that the Samsung E710 is an outstanding fone,
with crystal clear colour screen. I love the camera intergrated in the
fone as i recken is one of the top camera fones on the market...or i
think so... One thing that really makes this fone abit disappointing
is the short battery life. Other than that its a great fone
