Samsung Sunburst A697 Review

Samsung Sunburst A697 is a smart phone with a different look. Samsung has always been experimenting with the designs of their cell phones such as Samsung BEAT DJ. The Samsung Sunburst is available with AT&T network. When it comes to design, its uniqueness will leave you awestruck. It is smooth, sleek and curvy. The phone appears to be very solid and durable. It measures 4.33 x 2.08 x 0.51 inches and fits easily into the hand.

The resistive touchscreen display measures 3.0 inches and is capable of display 256k colors at 240 x 400 pixels. On the left side of the phone you can find the volume control buttons and microSD slot whereas on the right side you can find a combo port that can be used for charging, data transfer and connecting your headset. On the right side, you can also find the lock key and camera key.

The Samsung Sunburst is not high on specifications and hence it lacks many features. It makes use of TouchWiz UI which is commonly found on most Samsung phones. It provides you with three home screens to choose from. The Sunburst comes with a new feature called Smart Unlock that allows the user to draw patterns on the locked screen for executing different commands. By this feature, you can unlock the phone, launch the web browser, access the contacts, run the chatting applications and create message. Even though the feature sounds to be good, it is actually of not much use as it is not developed properly.

The Sunburst has an internal memory of 190MB and can detect a microSD of up to 32GB. You can make use of v2.0 microUSB and v2.1 Bluetooth with A2DP.The phone is provided with a 2 megapixel camera which performs well but we expected a camera with higher resolution on this unique phone.  The music player present on this phone is of mediocre quality and sound through the earphones and loudspeaker are good but not the best.

The instant messengers present on this phone will let you get in touch with your buddies on AOL messenger, Yahoo! messenger and Windows Live messenger. The virtual keyboard looks good but lags a lot. You can find the standard AT&T applications on this phone. Other applications that come preloaded on this phone are My-Cast Weather, Mobile Banking and WikiMobile to name a few.

You can make use of the assisted GPS feature of the Samsung Sunburst through AT&T Navigator, Where and Loopt. It has gives a battery life of 5 hours of talk time and 250 hours of stand-by time. The features that you won’t find on this phone are 3G, Wi-Fi and stereo FM radio.
