- Data sheet
Visually the 329 euro expensive S7220 with his dark dress and the red stitching is reminiscent of ultra S8300 top model touch, but differently than at the big brother is operated via a conventional keyboard, rather than a touch screen.
That works fine, only the unusual arrangement of the call and soft key buttons provide an occasional misuse. Otherwise even the innocent users found their way quickly. The main menu offers beautiful icons, the individual functions can be selected not only on the menu, but also directly using the numeric buttons.
A class of its own is the fine OLED display that shines with an excellent presentation. So the S7220 can also serve with customization options. Thus, the mobile phone in addition to the three standard display topics offers the possibility to create their own versions.
A handy feature is also the callable from stand by mode “menu”, which you can assemble according to own needs with up to 12 entries. So are frequently used functions without going through the main menu.
Happy with numerous features
Draws from the full fine Korean but not only in the handling and processing, but also when it comes to the user with numerous features in everyday life. This starts at the reception part of the Quad, continues HSDPA and EDGE over the download accelerator to Bluetooth and integrated GPS receiver and GPS support.
But, unfortunately, can be as already with the S8300, not to the route guidance with a Navisoftware use. But the integrated 5 megapixel camera for geotagging tasks.
Speaking of camera: the lens delivers good pictures and has functions to offer lots. The same is true for the music player, which ensures good sound combined with the supplied headset. An FM radio is also on board.
Weak UMTS performance
The S7220 was now on course to five of the connect– leaderboard, top’s playful a real top results in the laboratory of the Testfactory on the end. Here, the Samsung was distinct weaknesses in UMTS mode.
While the GSM range in the high frequency still neatly cut measurements, the poor result of the UMTS was for a ‘poor’ in this discipline. Also in the endurance measurements could not score the S7220 in the UMTS network.
So, the Samsung here on only eight days came readiness, while it held out whopping 18 days in GSM mode. There, the recommendation may be only to switch from UMTS in the menu. There was also good news from the lab: thanks to the great sound quality, mobile telephony is really fun.
