After being introduced in the second quarter of 2005, the Samsung X700 has now been discontinued.
Design and Display
The Samsung X700 is tiny enough to fit easily in a pocket or backpack thanks to its compact design and measurements of 108 x 44 x 19 mm. The phone weighs 95g, which is a manageable amount when compared to other contemporary smartphones.
When the Samsung X700 was introduced in 2005, the mini-SIM card was the most popular kind of SIM card.
The Samsung X700 has a TFT display with 256K colours, which at the time of its debut in 2005 was a high-quality display technology for mobile phones.
The smartphone’s 2.0-inch screen has a 176 x 220-pixel resolution and a pixel density of about 141 pixels per inch (PPI). In 2005, this was regarded as having a respectable display size and resolution for a mid-range phone.
The Samsung X700 has a single 1.3-megapixel camera, which was a good camera spec for a mid-range phone at the time of its release in 2005. The phone’s camera could record videos in addition to still images, making it a great tool for documenting events and memories while on the road.
The Samsung X700 has a microSD card slot, which at the time was a common storage choice for cell phones. The card slot on the phone was dedicated, which suggests that it was made with microSD cards in mind. This made it possible for customers to insert a microSD card to increase the phone’s internal storage.
Up to 1000 entries may be stored in the phone’s phonebook, each with 12 fields and a picture. The phone could keep up to 20 dialled, 20 received, and 20 missed calls in its call history. There is 35MB of internal storage on the Samsung X700. As a result, users were able to save a respectable amount of pictures, videos, and other things on the device, while the storage space of the phone could be greatly increased by inserting a microSD card.
Sound and Features
A stereo loudspeaker is included with the Samsung X700. When playing music or watching movies on the smartphone, improved the audio quality, and it was especially helpful when making calls while using the hands-free feature of the phone. The phone included a number of alert options, including vibration, polyphonic ringtones that could be downloaded, and MP3 ringtones. This gave customers the option to customise the alerts and notifications on their phones. There was no headphone jack on the Samsung X700.
The Samsung X700 was unable to connect to Wi-Fi networks since it lacked WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) capability. Users could only use their carrier’s mobile data services to access the internet as a result. The phone did, however, offer Bluetooth 1.2 with A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), allowing users to seamlessly connect to other Bluetooth-enabled gadgets like headsets, speakers, or PCs. For people who wanted to take calls or listen to music wirelessly, this capability proved helpful.
The Samsung X700 lacked GPS and other location-based services, making it unable to use it for navigation and other location-based services. There was an FM radio on the phone, so users could tune in to their preferred radio stations. The phone could be used as an FM radio without any additional equipment, such as a headset. Users had to use a particular cable to connect the phone to a computer or a charger because the USB port on the phone was proprietary.
A number of communications protocols were supported by the Samsung X700, including SMS (Short Message Service), EMS (Enhanced Communications Service), MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service), and email. These messaging systems allowed for the sending and receiving of texts, images, and videos by users. On the phone, users may access the internet using the WAP 2.0 browser. Simple websites might be accessed by using this basic browser.
Three games were pre-installed on the Samsung X700: Forgotten Warrior, Freekick, and Arch Angel. A popular feature at the time allowed users to download new games to their phones. Due to the phone’s Java functionality (MIDP 2.0), users may download and use Java-based apps and games on their devices.
Users may watch videos and listen to their favourite music on the Samsung X700 thanks to its MP3 and MP4 players. Users had the option of using a microSD card or the phone’s internal memory to store their media files. The phone has voice memo and voice command capabilities. While voice memos allowed users to write voice notes and memos, voice commands allowed users to manage specific phone operations using their voice. Users who wanted to use their phone hands-free or rapidly record reminders or notes could benefit from these capabilities.
A detachable Li-Po 800 mAh battery powers the Samsung X700 mobile phone model, giving it up to 450 hours of standby time and up to 7 hours and 30 minutes of talk time. The smartphone is available in Onyx Black.
