Living, working and playing in the remote Pacific Northwest mountains, quality cellular communications have all but eluded me for the 20 years I have been dumping money into it.
That is until activating this Samsung which operates beautifully with no complaints in several places not expected to offer any service and certainly didn't with all my other phones nor any other new options recently tested. Even showing one wavering on no bars of antenna, it is crystal clear with no breakup at all with my contacts reporting it "Sounds like your on a land line", I am very much impressed. All the other fancy features it boasts I can't comment on as I will probably never use them and consider most wholly redundant in a phone however having a camera at such convenience could prove quite valuable. The reviewers you may have encountered before this knocking the quality of the photos produced need to learn how to use a digital camera, this produces high quality images commensurate with it's 2 MP rating and merely needs as any given the opportunity to focus which all displays very nicely on the inner screen. I researched all my options extensively to procure what I most needed in this product, hold on to something readers, a telephone, and it delivers that in spades. Minor negatives apparent immediately are the very much exposed and unprotected camera lens in the hinge side and the secondary external screen thus I will be procuring some form of protective case for it, hopefully one a design limiting the twisting idea of the whole top of the phone as it takes two hands to close it smoothly after use. That aside I find the keypad buttons nicely delineated and assuring to press. The quality of the audio pristine and screen graphics astonishing offering nice big and well contrasting display for my aging eyesight. The fact that it has emergency GPS tracking with awesome transceiver performance is a comfort as well as I do much exploring on my own well off any beaten path. The phone presents itself as well-built save the twisting hinge which seems the vulnerable point in it's integrity however time will tell and again a protective case should help, I hope find a way to tighten or lock it fast buried somewhere in the somewhat challenging manual. If you are looking for a cell phone because you seek quality communications, especially in areas with coverage to be desired, I have very seriously pursued researching all the options out there both reading and reading between the lines of countless online reviews and phone in hand in remote areas physically trying them, and I do mean trying where this Samsung A970 achieves commendably. I have to give it a rating of excellent overall, a solid 9.5 out of 10. As a cellular communications device , I found no close second. Can you here me now in frustrated jest has finally given way in my life to a clear and convicted; yes, I can hear you fine. Update Still working as new on 4-12 2013 !!
Pros:Camera, Swivel Feature, Loud Speakers
Cons:Cons:Limited Storage, Bulky, Limited Features, No USB Recharge
What can I say? I didn't do my homework like I normally do when I buy a piece of technology. I goofed when I made the decision to get this phone.
This doesn't recharge by USB, you have to buy addition software for the MP3 Player function,the camera sometimes gets confused and is upside down and backwards, the list goes on and on.
What good I can say about this phone is the amount of time I've spent taking pictures of girls doing things, since the camera can take pics from the side, they think I'm just pressing buttions on the phone. Opital Zoom is WAY better than VGA, but why on 2x? the Razr can go to 8x(VGA)!!!!!!!
Next time I'll do my research better and get a good phone, and not this piece of ****!
I loved my original Samsung SCH A970 phone (Verizon Wireless) as a cell with top quality voice connections, few to no dropped calls, excellent ease of use for music and photography (still and video), and interesting form factor (the twist flip up for photography). Although the unboxed replacement I bought on eBay after I damaged my original was in excellent condition it, unfortunately, was discovered to be on a Lost and/or Stolen List with Verizon. Since an insurance company had reimbursed the original owner the cell was therefore unlockable and unusable. It is no longer offered by Verizon.
This amazing cell phone has a camera quality of 2.0 Megapixel with optical zoom. It is just like regular digital camera. It has a place to add memory to store more pictures and you can develope them in any camera stores. It has Bluetooth, so you can use wireless headset. It is also a MP3 player. It is just amazing that small phone with everything built in. It also a speaker phone, great reception.
