Samsung E770 review

 Review: May 2006  

Last updated August 2006


In a nutshell: Clamshell phone with 1.3 megapixel camera, video camera, music player, memory card & Bluetooth.


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 use.

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. Highly recommended!

Samsung E770 features 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
  • Speakerphone
  • Voice clarity
  • 64-voice polyphonic ringtones with MP3 ringtones and VibeTonz
  • Melody composer

  • Document viewer (Excel, Word, PowerPoint)
  • Java games & applications
  • 4 Embedded Java games (Bobby Carrot, Airship Racing, Arch Angel, Freekick)
  • Wallpapers
  • 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
  • Triband
  • Size: 90 x 46 x 20 mm

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*

Very pretty handset, great camera BUT I will never get a Samsung again. I don't know if it's a problem with the software Orange have put on it but have had lots of problems; phone freezing - have to take battery out to reset; messages not sending. I've had two different handsets and had the same problem with both. A real shame. If it worked I'd love it!

This Phone is great. camera good enough for most shots, mp3 player quite decent sound quality.

True, the battery life is not brilliant and doesn't last as long as some other brands (Nokias and SEs spring to mind) but it is a great all-rounder. Recommended!

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 tone.

Ive had this phone for nearly two months and so far so good (touch wood). 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 me. Its a must have phone!

This phone is the best one I have ever had, and as I am a phone freak 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 problems wit quite a few samsung phone s. Need to try something different

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.

I thought it was maybe the battery so i bought another but exactly the same problem. The phone was returned and I received a new one to find the same battery problem and another fault... everytime i tried to access my photos the phone locked then reset. This phone was then returned for repair and came back with the same problems. I then received another new phone and... exactly the same. Not able to access the photos folder and the battery life is non existant. The phone is being returned this week and I shall take a D600. Keep clear of this phone til they sort out the problems..

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.

The only problem, i've got with this phone, is the vibrate alert does not seem to work in combiantion with Mp3 ring tones. Although its a great phone, the Nokia 6230i is by far the superior phone features wise, but for looks the samsung wins.

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 phones available!

as soon as i saw this phone i fell in love it looks amazing and is so sleek. what i love most about it is that it hasnt lost its looks whilst having all the technology. the only thing missing i think is a higher megerpixel camera.

I have had this phone a week now and already i think its ace, it does more a less everything you want it to and more. The sound quality is great, the video and pictures are great and the talking clock is just the icing on the cake. This is the best phone i have had and would recommend it to others without a doubt ..... oh ye, it is a step up from the E720

This is a great phone! Although i do agree that the vibration is almost non-existent and the camera is not as responsive as my old EH-700 but the quality is a lot better. The mini SD memory card is way cool as well. Buy it NOW

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.

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 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!

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 think.

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!
