Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewGood

  • THE GOOD

    The Samsung Sunburst is an affordable, slim, and lightweight touch-screen phone with a 2-megapixel camera, an HTML Web browser, GPS, an internal accelerometer, and more.

  • THE BAD

    The Samsung Sunburst's interface is nothing new, and the touch screen can feel a little slow to respond at times.

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    As long as you don't expect it to have groundbreaking performance, the Sunburst is a simple touch-screen phone with a healthy set of midrange features for a pretty good price.

I love this phone, it is now "My Precious"(Gollum)

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

So far so good. I'm learning all the features of the phone as I go and I'm amazed that this is considered a basic SmartPhone. I've was one to say that I never wanted a touchscreen phone because I find them complicated to use and with the slightest touch you are calling wrong people and entering into programs you weren't trying to access, but with the Samsung Sunburst, I can easily move about the screen with little to no problems of miscalling or entering in programs. It is taking me time to get used to the touchscreen keyboard, though I make few to little errors. Would be nice if it had the threaded text messaging capability.

Samsung A697 Sunburst

I brought this phone for my wife as a upgrade to her old Samsung phone. The main feature that we were looking for was the voice dialing and this phone fit the bill just right. It pair right up with her bluetooth system head unit Pioneer 7100BT and work flawlessy. The touch screen takes a bit to get use to and the sliding panels, but for younger user that are more familiar with this type of phone feature will find it easy to use. For a basic phone (non Smart/PDA) it gives you the feel of a more highend phone without the cost that comes with those types (data plans). This is a phone made for small hands/fingers, especialy when texting, so giving this to woman or younglady would not be out of line.

good little phone

I love how small it is, easy to use, great features, great price, my daughter has dropped it several times and it works perfect. I especially love that the micro sd card slot is on the side so no taking off cover to get to. Has all the samsung features of similar phones such as the impression. You will be amazed at how many photos it holds. Buy Buy Buy it.

Samsung SGH Sunburst A697 (AT&T

I'd bought this phone for myself because its a touch screen and its easier for me to text that way. My husband liked it so I bought him one too. He didnt have it a week before he lost it... It was never turned in by the finder....

So for Christmas, I happened onto phones on the ebay site. I thought I would buy him another and surprise him. He was VERY SURPRISED!!! He said it was the best phone he'd had up until now and really wanted another.

Its a user friendly phone, not hard to figure out, and fun to play with. If I had to claim a drawback its that the letters are a little close together for people with thicker fingers. I use my fingernails and pop off text messages in record speed, but its not for the fingertip texter as much.

All I know is that I would be lost without my Sunburst, I dont want any thing else. I will go on ebay if mine ever stops working, just to get another.

Great phone for those who are used to the virtual keyboards! Try it out!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This phone was great too! But I ended up switching over to the Pantech Ease only for the fact that I do better with an actual keyboard versus the virtual keyboard. This phone is a great size to carry around, is super light in weight and was a lot of fun to use. I would still recommend it because I am just stuck in my ways and am not from this new age of virtual keyboards. Try it out and see how great it really is :)
