With the SGH-M110 (test in connect 3/2008), Samsung has a very cheap and popular outdoor cell phone for some time in its extensive product portfolio. What are so obvious to place a corresponding model higher than even a price range? That exists now with the brand new B2700 for 269 euros.
- Samsung B2700
- Data sheet
The UMTS device comes in a fully rubberized housing and IP-54 certified. Splashing water, hard impacts and dust so little can have the Samsung. However, the Korean mobile long not so robust acts like the Sonim.
The B2700 fails then also much compact and lightweight and takes a place also in the owner’s pocket, without applying too thick and false facts to pretend.
The B2700 is not a hard construction site mobile is, rather it has ambitious hobby skiers, mountain bikers, climbers or skaters in their sights – and it is not surprising that the Samsung depicted black version in a red and a blue variant is to have.
Easy to use and rugged display
The operation succeeds manual as with the mainstream phones Samsung without prior study. Users can find all the functions of the positions where he is waiting for you, the speed is quite fast. The rubber buttons are convincing and run the commands without further ADO and with clear pressure point.
Also the display is good: the ad is not only big and blessed with a high resolution, but represents clearly and big important content such as entered telephone numbers. Also on the subject of scratch resistance the B2700 can shine: In the hard key test proved very robust – even when compared to the smaller Samsung model SGH-M110.
In terms of facilities, the Samsung pleases its owner with features such as UMTS, a compass, an altimeter and a step counter and display the distance traveled and the calories consumed. This is joined by a flashlight function, which can be activated via a dedicated key on the side of the unit.
Communication and entertainment
Video calling, Bluetooth and the EDGE download accelerators are also on board as an E-Mail client. There is even a separate menu item for the Google search and Gmail for written communication and information gathering.
The FM radio and the music player that feed via the MicroSD slot with songs can provide entertainment. However, a memory card not enclosed but a stereo headset and a data cable and PC software for the data synchronization with the computer.
Although the B2700 at the endurance not to the outstanding results of the competitor Sonim XP3 is Enduro, more than praise are worth the measured 26 days of standby time.
The results for the talk times are even better, because with up to eleven hours E Netz and UMTS conditions – very strong three hours and 33 minutes in the 3 g network the Samsung reached a top level. The user must do significant compromising UMTS reception while the GSM properties here “good” deserve a smooth.
Bottom line: The Samsung B2700 is not only an ideal leisure phone that is well equipped and has plenty of stamina, but also as a great all-rounder.
