Samsung SCH-A870 / Siren
hide detailed ratings
Extremely poor sound quality
I bought two SCH-A870s last week from Verizon. After activation and putting a full charge
on them, I started making calls - to include just calling the other phone.
The phone with the best sound quality sounded tinny. The person I was talking to could not recognize my voice, but could understand what I was saying. Reception was about the same.
The other phone was so bad it was impossible to hold a conversation. It seemed to completely drop every third or fourth word.
The phones went back to the Verizon store the next morning. I make some calls just before turning them in to confirm the bad sound quality. Exchanged them for LG VX8300s and got great sound quality.
