A717 Superior To A707 Sync

by Archer6    Jul 17, 2007, 10:33 PM

I have both the A707 Sync and now the A717. They are both very nice phones and very close in functionality. I find the A717 to be my favorite for a number of reasons. I prefer the sleeker, thinner exterior without the audio controls, the protruding fixed camera, and the over sized external display. The small OLED display near the top, is very discreet and continues the "All Black" theme of the phone. I prefer the D-Pad as it's round instead of the irregularly shaped square on the A707. Another advantage of the 717 is the rotating camera that can be positioned to take pics front, rear or rotated to the closed position, thereby protecting the lens. I have large hands and find the keypad on the A717 easier to use and a bit more positive in the key travel. I also like how the logos for both AT&T and Samsung are small, very light gray and nearly invisible. Not bold and large like the 707. Aesthetically this is a very subtle, handsome phone.
