Samsung E770 Review
Review: May 2006. Updated August 2006.
The Samsung E770 is a very nice-looking and compact clamshell phone
with a black and silver finish. We want to say straight away that this
is one of Samsung's nicest phones ever! The phone is very compact, has
an outstanding keypad, user-friendly menus and is just very nice to
The E770 is the upgrade to the E720,
which looked great on paper but had major problems with audio quality
and other minor issues. We are happy to report that these problems have
all been fixed in the E770.
The E770 is not the highest spec phone available, but is still very
good. Starting with the imaging capabilities, the E770 has a 1.3 megapixel
camera with flash and a video recorder. Both of these are of excellent
quality. The outer display is a 262k colour OLED LCD screen and the
main display is a 262k colour TFT screen. Both are again of excellent
quality. The camera and display of the E770 are not the best that Samsung
has ever produced (try the D600 if you
want more) but they are a very close second.
Moving on to audio next, both the reception and voice quality of the
phone are excellent. There's a built-in MP3 player that supports a wide
range of formats, including MP3, ACC and WMA. External music keys on
the front fascia let you easily switch between songs. You can use the
Samsung Bluetooth® stereo headset to listen to music, or use the
digital power amp to play music from the built-in speakers. High quality
MP3 ringtones are supported and with the VibeTonz function, the E770
vibrates in time with your current ringtone, so you can tell who is
calling from the rhythm.
An essential component to any phone with an MP3 player and video camera
is plenty of memory and the E770 has ample memory: 80 Mbytes internal
plus an optional external memory card. Connectivity is also very good.
Although there's no infrared connection, both Bluetooth and USB are
available, as well as a TV Out connection to display your photos and
videos directly on a TV or projector. The document viewer lets you view
documents in Word, Excel and PowerPoint formats. The E770 is also the
first Samsung phone to support high-speed internet access via EDGE.
All in all, this is a fantastic phone with no faults that we can find.
Features of the Samsung E770 include:
- 1.3 megapixel camera with LED Flash and 4x digital zoom
- Video recorder with LED video light
- Stereo music player (MP3/ ACC/ ACC+/ e-ACC+/ WMA formats)
- Digital power amplifier
- Internal display: TFT, 262,144 colours, 176 x 220 pixels
- External display: OLED, 262,144 colours, 96 x 80 pixels
- Voice clarity
- 64-voice polyphonic ringtones with MP3 ringtones and VibeTonz
- Melody composer
- Messaging: SMS, MMS, Email (POP3 / SMTP /
- Document viewer (Excel, Word, PowerPoint)
- Java games & applications
- 4 Embedded Java games (Bobby Carrot, Airship Racing, Arch Angel,
- Caller ID (Text/Image/Video)
- Personal organiser functions
- Phone book (1,000 entries)
- Memory: 80 Mbytes plus memory card (microSD format)
- Connectivity: USB, Bluetooth, TV Out
- WAP 2.0, GPRS Class 10, EDGE
- Size: 90 x 46 x 20 mm
- Weight: 85g
- Talktime: 3 hours

I like Dunx love my phone - but mine also has started crashing when
using the wap browser - just 12 months after buying it. Mine hasn't
been dropped much (and as far as I remember, not around the time that
the wap stopped working!) but I am yet to find a clamshell phone with
similar spec to replace it with so I just have to put up with it for
now!! As for memory - you can buy a micro-sd card pretty cheap from
7 day shop .com! (PS I was told tri-band would work in the States but
my phone refused to work - I tried my sim card in a friend's quad-band
phone and that worked. So don't rely on this one working everywhere!)

I have had this phone for absolutely ages now, dropped it a million
times even once down an escalator! Never had a problem EXCEPT it has
started to crash when trying to use the internet browser, that is most
likely because A) I have generally treated it very badly (escalator
springs to mind) or B) its a fixable bug and I havent been bothered
to find out because I dont browse the internet anyway. All in all, a
brilliant phone. out of date now byt todays standards but I certainly
would replace it with the same model due to the battery life (looking
around me at newer phones constantly on charge) - durability (thinking
of the N95 that got sent back 3 times with broken screen etc and many
others that appear to be made of delicate fairydust) and the fact it
still looks pretty good. 5*

Reviewed by Peter W from UK on 7th Sep 2006
I 'upgraded' to this phone 3 weeks ago, from a Motorola V525, which
was beginning to show signs of an ageing battery, with a life of about
1½ days per charge. If I had been writing this review 3 days
ago, I'd have condemned it as an out-and-out disaster. I'll now moderate
that opinion somewhat. First, the things I like about it: Weight: compared
with the Motorola, which is comparable in size to a hand grenade, it's
a delight. Camera: not top of the range, but a big step up from the
Moto. And the things I don't like (a lot): Battery life: by yesterday,
this was down to just 8 hours!! However, I consulted Orange who advised
me (a) to disable the Bluetooth connection, and (b) to recondition the
battery by recharging it for 6 hours when it next expired. Thus far,
this seems to have worked: 24 hours later I still have a 'full' battery.
However, with my Motorola it was not necessary to manually enable and
disable the Bluetooth connection: it was 'discoverable' for 60 seconds
on startup, and was thereafter dormant until I switched on my headset.
Bad news. The E770 has no 'handsfree' capabilty which enables a call
to be answered automatically after 15 seconds. You always have to push
a button, either on the phone or the headset. Motorola have got it right.
Vibrate settings. The Moto had a setting called 'Vibe & Ring', which
meant that you got 10 seconds of 'vibe', followed by your ringtone of
choice. Excellent for those of us who attend quiet meetings, but also
go to noisy events. This is only available on the Samsung if you use
their exceedingly naff built-in tones. (And by the way what happened
to the excellent tones which were available on the E700 and D600??)
This phone makes a 1995 Nokia sound trendy. I have now discovered that
if you set a naff default tone as your vibe-and-ring default, but give
your regular callers their own (downloaded) tones, this works as you
would expect: vibe followed by a cringe-free tone. But you live in fear
of the non-regular caller who will set off the glass-shattering default

Everything you would expect from a samsung, a easy functional menu,
great picture quailty and easy texting! The talking clock is muffled
however its a great feature when its too sunny to see your screen for
the time. The memory on this phone is enough, ive got over 200 pictures
and a few videos and a few songs but if you want more memory you can
always buy a memory card. This phone is my third samgsung and its the
best. I use to love nokias until I tried samgsung, lets say this I will
never go back! All in all this phone is a hit and all my friends envy

n had a lot I should know! The camera quality is brill, the sound is
gd but could be a wee bit louder it would be good if it had a speaker
like with the D500 for listening to the MP3 player! I used to be an
avid Nokia fan until I got a panasonic phone and then D500 and then
the D600 and now I am waiting to receive the E900 which should be even
better (fingers crossed!) The pic quality is brill and the vids are
gd to! The memory is better than most phones, but I also had to get
a memory card just to save they wee funny vids I took! I would say the
phone does everything you can imagine in a phone but the sound quality
when on a call is a bit disappointing! But the overall rating for this
phone is 5* defo! x

Generally the E770 ranks well within the Samsung range. My best feature
from it is the fact that it can view word documents, Excel docs, PDF
docs and even HTML documents. Expandable memory is also a definite plus
for this phone. The phone being able to play AAC files is also another
plus as the AAC files are much smaller than MP3 but come with almost
the same quality. Image quality is good both on the phone and PC and
the the ability to zoom on photos taken with the phone or downloaded
is a great feature. Videos are great especially if in MP4 format though
they tend to take a lot of space but with expanded memory, that should
not be a problem. A few problems with the phone include the fact that
you cannot set the phone to vibrate with downloaded ringtones either
MIDI or Mp3 and leads to many missed calls. The time and date display
cannot also be removed if you would wish to display your wallpaper in
full. You also cannot send all your phone book contacts at one go like
the Sony Ericsson range and sending the contacts one by one is time
consuming and the files, if being sent to a PC are saved separately
for each contact. A key shortcoming is that you cannot add a new number
that is already on your call list to existing records on your phonebook.
The phone is generally excellent but lacks FM radio (which lacks in
most samsung phones) in case you get tired of listening to downloaded
MP3s on your phone. 4 stars for the E770.

When i first got the phone i was well happy with it. It had good qualities
and was just right for me to use on an every day basis. However, this
phone has only managed to keep up its good qualities for about 2 months.
Last month i hav experienced a certain problem with the phone, in which
i ended up having to send in order for it to get repaired. The problem
was that when i tried going onto WAP, the screen would freeze and eventually
turn off and back on again and wouldnt let me access WAP at all. After
getting my phone back, which took roughtly 2 weeks, the phone was working
normally again. But this time it only lasted about a month or so. Now
the problem in which i am experiencing is that it will not let me access
my photos. Now, when i try to access my photos, it freezes and eventually
trn itself off and then back on again. Cannot wait untill i can upgrade
to a new phone. But this time it wont be samsung at all. Have been experiencinh

Samusung e770 is an excellent phone but with few short comings. The
battery life is very poor.I returned mine finally to the distributor
after changing it for 3 times for its por battery life. Battery life
lasts a maximum of 5 hours when fully charged overnight. Left for this
shortfall, the phone is good. It is exactly like the e720 with more
features like the voice command and talking clock. I will recommend
the e720, e730, e630 to anyone wishing to buy a new one instead of the
e770. You will be facinated with its style and features but will be
highly disappointed to find your overnight-charged phone off by midday
for low battery.

The quality of the Samsung out ways the Nokia's around it's price range.
I am 99% happy with this phone, yes I have a couple of niggles, which
are that you can't set vibration with your own ringtones (mp3's or midi
tones) and for the message alert tone you have to use the imbedded ones,
but on the whole every thing else about it, as most are saying, is fantastic.
Video quality is excellent and camera quality, for 1.3meg, is very good
as well. The thing also recognises my voice commands and also tells

from that, its been a great phone to have.

I've had this phone for about a month now and its brilliant, the t9
dictionary does save new words and the camera is great. I found it very
easy to use even before i read the manual. Only downfall is the reception
but im not sure if this is because of the phone or the network:S any
one else having a lot of no service or limited service on orange?

I lost my previous phone (Samsung D500) and was sent a Nokia 6111 as
an upgrade, which I really disliked as it was cheap and tacky! I sent
it back and received the Samsung E770 instead. I'm really pleased with
the phone so far, it's an excellent upgrade on the Samsung E720. The
icons have been updated and the phone is very sleek and slim, giving
the phone a very modern feel. The camera and video function are excellent
for a 1.3 megapixel phone. I find it easy to download ringtones via
bluetooth and the sound quality is very good. I also like the quirky
speaking clock function, especially when the sun't shining and I can't
see the time on the external display (my 11 year old also loves this
feature!) As for the t9 being unable to save words to the dictionary,
I would have to disagree, mine not only saves them, but often finishes
the words I use regularly off for me! I've not had the phone for very
long, but so far so good, I would recommend this phone to anyone.

I bought this phone a few days ago and its a great. Its simple to use
and also really easy to navigate around the phones menus and files etc.
The camera is excellent for a 1.3 megapixel, nice clear images if you
put it on the right settings, also the video quality is good for a 1.3
megapixel camera. Another feature is that if you keep your finger down
on the volume keys, the phone tells you the time, i must say that the
voice of the man talking telling you the time is a bot fuzzy. The memory
of the phone is also very good, 1000 phonebook contacts, reasonable
sized memory for images and videos, being 81 meg. As for the looks,
they are very modern and a nice keypad layout on the main part of the
phone, I higley recomend this phone, stands out from all the other flip

I've had this phone about a week and it is a quality phone. I bought
this phone because I wanted a clam phone that look good, had Bluetooth,
a MP3 player and believe it or not something that I could use to make
phone calls and send text messages. The menus are easy to navigate through,
the screen is clear and large, the keys are not too small, it has Internet
capability and it look flash, but in a mature and sophisticated way
not a Jack the lad way. There are some minor niggles, but lets not get
too distracted from what this is "A PHONE". The camera is not the greatest
in the world, (1.3 Mega Pixels not 2.0 Mega Pixels) but if you want
to take excellent photos then you buy a digital camera not a phone.
Let's face it the camera is a fun feature not a critical feature. The
other thing is if you miss a call then you will need to open the phone
to find out. Which is a shame, it would have been nice if the outer
screen could display something to notify you. You can set you message
alert to ring every 2 minutes, but again no outer display notification.
FYI - To use the talking clock you hold down the volume up button on
the side the phone when it's closed. Nice feature, but the voice is
a little too robotic.

i got this phone about a week ago. it is really light and a lovely sleek,
smart design. the camera is 1.3 mega pixel, but upgrading from the d500
that was the same mega pixel, this phone is obviously better. The quality
of the screen is excellent,the speed is great and the key pad is easy
to use. yes the vibration isnt that good but that doesnt really bother
me. all in all i like this phone, it looks great and its user friendly.
one thing i cant work out is this phone has a talking clock which was
shown to me when i upgraded, but i cant find out how to work it. if
you know let me know please!

Got this phone two weeks ago. Its excellent in my opinion. The menus
are simple to navigate. Anyone who can't figure out how to use it should
be ashamed of themselves. Cameras very good for a 1.3 megapixel. Sound
is qualiy. The vibrate function is excellent to, never missed a call
when its on. It plays mp3s and records videos very well. Over all i'd
say this is another quality phone by samsung.

This phone is utterly fab!!! I have just (finally) upgraded from a sony
ericson T610, and now I am the envy of all my friends- who all have
great-looking phones like the LG 880 and Motorola V3i. The manual tells
you all you need to know- you just have to look at it thoroughly...
but if you have already had any mobile phone, there's hardly any differences
in controls etc. The camera is fab, the mP3 quality brill... and you
get a free pair of headphones with it! If you want a better camera-
get a digital camera and use it's 4or 5 megs! Also... if you want to
check email, get a blackberry or similar device!

I got this phone as an upgrade and am sending it back. There were a
lot of niggly things that annoyed me. The vibrate was virtualy none
existant, more like a hum, unlike my old 6230 which was much better.
Also the calendar functions were poor. You can't set an alarm on a memo
or a to do, and when i did find an alarm in the setting, it goes off
but you have nothing to say that you have a missed event. Also if you
have a web based email you want to check, this is difficult. It wouldn't
let me add new words to the t9 whilst composing a message or an email
address, as someone who uses this facility a lot this ws a major flaw!
I didn't like the external screen either, with no function to have no
wallpaper/clock, one had to be displayed. A lovely looking phone, great
features but not for me. Will be getting the 6230i, best non 3G around

I've had this phone for 2 weeks now and I am realy happy with it. For
starters it looks fantastic (mine is a dark gun metal grey) and it is
so slim compared to any other clamshells out there. It fits into the
tightest pocket. This is my second Samsung and I would never consider
any other phone. It's so easy to use. All the menu's are clear and simple.
I like the ringtones and message tones and the fact that it vibrates
in sync with the sound is really great. You can use mp3's as ringtones
too but not sure that you can have it vibrate with your own. Battery
life is good, I have no issues with it. Obviously if you use the video
or MP3's a lot then the battery life is short, however I use mine as
a phone (surprise). The camera is excellent and the call quality so
far is good. I love the feel of this phone it feels real quality. I
would recommend this phone to anyone. I was torn between this and the
D600 but I made the right choice.

I was shopping for a new phone and had a bit of a hard time becasue
I didn't know what I was looking for. I needed a cool phone that won't
hurt my budget that much but still bring out "oohhs" "aaahhhs" from
peers. I wanted to get the Moto SLVR L7 coz of it's look and feel, but
it came short with the built-in camera. It doesn't even reach 1 mega
pixel! Then I saw the W800i from Sony Ericsson. I am a true fan of SE
phones (I've got 2 already) and I'm quite happy with the performance.
I visited their websites and saw new phones that would come out, so
I scratched the W800i. Then I saw the D500, D600 and E770 from Samsung.
I don't like slide or swivel phones but compared the D500 and D600 with
the E770 anyways. The E770 comes with a solid 256k TFT color display
on a 176x220 pixel main screen and an OLED 65k (96x80 pixel) external
screen. It features the Vibatone, w/c allows your vibrate setting to
be "in sync" with your tone. It's a clamshell form factor but still
kinda slim and sleek compared to some clamshells. It supports Bluetooth,
GPRS Class 10, EDGE, WAP 2.0/xHTML, MP3/AAC, Java MIDP 2.0, SyncML,
Voice command/memo, and USB. It comes with an internal 80Mb shared memory
but can be expanded with a transflash card (I've got a 256Mb TF card).
It's got a cool MP3 player and can play MP3s whether the phone is open
or closed. It records videos on MPEG4 and the resolution is quite nice.
Pics come out fine as well. Like the D600, this phone is also capable
of printing and displaying pics/videos on your TV! Some setbacks would
be this phone doesn't have infrared, HSCSD, and 3G support. Well, I
don't really care about Infrared and we still don't have 3G here in
the country. Some effort is needed to get used to the menu interfaces
but probably it's just me coz this is the first time I'm handling a
Samsung phone. Overall, I love this phone. It's the best clamshell phone
I have had so far and this is a real keper. I will never regret getting
this phone. One of Samsung's best phones ever!
