Samsung SCH A-740 Review

 

Mar 20, 2007 by jkrenn013

Here is my review of this phone:

I rate this phone as below average. Most of the time I have no signal. Although that could also be because Sprint doesn't have very good coverage to begin with. I am constantly having problems while using the wireless web. Sometimes pages freeze and shuts the whole phone off! Sometimes I get so many different error messages. Once when I called Sprint Customer service (and waited about a half hour to speak to a human) the technician told me "what do you want me to do about it, I cant just magically make your phone work for you." anyways... aside from the web problems... the pix quality is ok for a 0.3 mega pixel phone. the phone doesn't hold much memory at all. during phone calls the quality was pretty good, when a call isnt dropped! the tools that are on the phone were pretty neat such as countdown, calender, voice memos, voice dial etc. The best part if anything is that the phone is pretty durable. I dropped it many times and everything works. Though my fiance has the same phone and hers is now in two pieces! so here are my pros and cons:

Pros: OK Camera
good voice quality
VERY durable
display is ok
nice pre-programmed ringers

NOW for the Cons:
Cant send pix from "save to phone"
too many dropped calls
hardly have a decent signal
HORRIBLE web browser!
and terrible service from sprint.

So to conclude, I would not recommend this phone, though you probably wont cuz it is now discontinued.

After being with sprint for more than 10 years i will be switching to Verizon when my contract expires in a few months. I cant wait to get the lg enV vx-9900. so much better than this phone 2.0 megapixel camera. video recording, much better display quality, qwerty keyboard, and so much more. Plus Verizon's service is soooo much better than sprint. all my friends have verizon and i wont use any of my minutes calling them cuz its unlimited to verizon customers, all though sprint has that to, but i dont know many on sprint. BYE!!

This phone is not worth a penny

This is by far the worst phone I have ever had in my life. I would charge that battery full and half an hour later it would be going dead again. The button pad gets super hot after only 5 minutes of talking on it. The antenna is messed up in it and I have to stand on my bed in my house just to use it. I would not recommend this phone to ANYONE at all. The only pro I can think of is it has a flash. Thats about it. I have had nothing but problems with this phone since the day I got it.
