It was a month before that thought of getting a Phone for my wife. She was expecting a basic Phone with basic functionality. Instead of going for the one with the most basic, I thought I would go with something else. After doing a couple of research I settled on with a couple or more phones like Nokia 2700 classic, Nokia 6303, Nokia 3100 ..etc. When I reached univercel The saleman show me the samsung beat and surely It did beat me off!
The phone is cute looking, with well defined style. A steriophonic Phone with two speakers on either side. The sound coming out was adequate (Pss.. This is a music Phone). M2710 is a 2G Phone with GSM Quad network acceptance capability. With a size of 96 x 46 x 16 mm, it weighs a little over 95 grams, It have a TFT screen with 65K colors and have an accelorometer senser in it. Phone book can accomodate around 1000 entries and have an internal memory of 50 MB, which is expandable upto 16 GB with a trans flash card. It has GPRS, EDGE and Bluetooth. Camera is 2 MP and being frank produces pictures having less noise than my Nokia 7210 Supernova with the same MP.
The phone I have is a red version and it is available in blue (or was that violet). The keys look strudy and the making of call and receiving them are easy.
Some of the features i like the most are
1. The mute option. - when you receive a call you just have to flip the phone.
2. type in the numbers and you will see that in the screen. for examle you remembe that last 3 digits of the number and forgot the name under which you store that number of the gal you met last day. just type in those last 3 digits and you get the list from which you can choose the name!
What I did not like is the less userfriendliness when compared to the nokia counter parts - which is getting narrowed in the recent models.
