It’s too difficult to memorize the device’s name. But, you might change your thought as it is so possible to fall in love with the phone at the first sight. Some say this is amazing phone with a pretty penny price, more than that the handset is capable of doing great with its Bada OS.
Let’s take a look at the handset’s key features first, thus you can give your personal opinion about the phone later on. Samsung S7230E Wave 723 comes with great display with its 3.2″ 256K-color TFT LCD capacitive touchscreen, QWVGA (240 x 400 pixels), and the multi-touch input. It is different from the Samsung’s top line phone, for it brings you a Bada OS inside which is equipped with Samsung Apps. The technology is still the Quad-band GSM support with dual-band 7.2Mbps HSDPA, without HSUPA it shows the phone was developed for mass market needs. As for connectivity, the device allows users to make a Wi-Fi tethering using sort of app, moreover, it sports Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n connectivity with WPS support. In addition, the standard microUSB port and Bluetooth v3.0 with A2DP can be the other hot features of the connectivity.
Although you find it as a mid-range phone, you shouldn’t be that disappointing for this still offers built-in GPS receiver with A-GPS support, digital compass, and Samsung Mobile Navigator. he 5-MP camera comes with touch-focus, geo-tagging, smile detection and LED flash. Doesn’t it sound great for a middle class phone? Next, you can make use of its QVGA@15fps video recording for capturing any moment. The stereo FM radio with RDS and FM recording, and the DNSe music enhancement will accomplish your multimedia feature. As for browsing activities, the webkit-based Samsung Dolphin Browser 2.0 with full Flash support is cool enough, moreover it has an integration of YouTube client, Facebook and Twitter at one accessible place.
It would be more common when this post shows you what weaknesses the device brings out along with its advantages jotted down above. Even a cool high-end smartphone comes with its main disadvantages, thus it would be just very normal to receive these all disadvantages. First, it comes to the low resolution screen of the display. So far, we might get the highest 16M colors display is grabbed by the high-end device, so it is forgivable to have a mid-range phone with a lower resolution screen. Next, Samsung Apps which provides all apps for the Bada OS based phones comes with limited number of apps only, though it sounds unfair as we compare it with the Android Market or Apple App store.
Talking about the disadvantages of the phone is an interesting topic actually, though we can only see small number point. Let’s just continue. The new Samsung family has no DivX/XviD video support, and its camera is not protected with a lens cover. On the other hand, the web browser performs poor quality while it opens the site which is supported with Flash. Some reviewers even consider the card slot is another disadvantage, for it is placed under the battery. Mostly disappointing, the preinstalled SatNav software is a trial only, and the ambient light sensor couldn’t change screen brightness dynamically.
All in all, the Samsung S7230E Wave 723 is a fun device. As a mid-range phone it easy to find a lot of great features offering positive impressions, and take aside the negative ones out of the way. Although it can’t be denied that the TFT display brings another disappointment. Well, let’s take it all the negative sides easy as we have agreed to focus on its plenty of positives like the nice camera, the incredible User Interface, and the solid and compact quality and materials. The tethering app even hits will be able to hit the phone’s counterpart in its class, for tethering capability is still a premium feature which is normally designed for a high-end phone line.
