Samsung SCH-u740


Samsung SCH-u740: Samsung always provide the best for the least. SCH-u740 follows the tradition.

Sporty as well as fashioned looking SCH-u740 weighs about 3.6 ounces and just 0.5 inches thick. This flip open cell phone works on tri band and has dual display. External display is 1.1 inch and can show basic operations without flip opening the phone again and again. The main screen is brilliant 2.2 inches with resolution of 176x200 pixels. SCH-u740 comes in silver, black or white colors.

On the back, just above the external display lie a good quality 1.3 MP camera which supports 1280 x 960 pixel resolution. And not only that, it comes with flash as well to take high quality snaps in dark. One can also record video clips with SCH-u740. However the camera is very much sensitive to motion like taking snaps of even a slow moving object turns out to be blurry.

The cell phone can play MP3 and WMA files without any problem. The speaker is also of very good quality. No need to tell, stereo headphone can be attached for personal listening.

The battery works fine for up to 3.5 hours of talk time and 200 hours on standby. Although it would be rated as 'below average' for a cell phone like SCH-u740. Synchronization with PC could be via Bluetooth or USB 2.0. In either way, the phone responds very well to system commands. SCH-u740 is provided with a slot for micro SD memory card so you can extend cell phone memory up to 2 GB.

The overall performance of Samsung SCH-u740 is just brilliant. And with around $150, one could have an all in one cell phone. The cons of SCH-u740 include touch sensitive keys for music playing. This may sound weird but when track is changed with accidental touch, which would really annoy you.
