Samsung A 687 - Expert Reviews

Introduction

Samsung A 687 is another low mid range device offered by Samsung. The device comes with a 2.6 inch screen which by today's standards is not a big screen at all. The TFT resistive touch screen does not give a great resolution also with a meagre 240 by 320 pixels. The design is different with a slider QWERTY keyboard but there are other devices as well with the same design but bigger screens. Moving over the screen, the most important thing about the device is that it is not a Android featuring device which is the biggest drawback with the device. This would be a hindrance to it when the user would pit the device against other devices with Android. As far as the dimensions of the device is concerned, it has a length of 105.9mm, a breadth of 58.9mm and a height of 14.6mm. The device weighs 113.1 grams and offers various multimedia features including the music player and the video player where the music player does offer a decent sound quality when heard through the earphones although when used with the loudspeakers, the sound quality does drop a bit. The internal memory is 80MB, which is not huge by any means but the user can stretch the external memory up to 32GB with the help of a microSD card slot. There is no access to wireless LAN but the Internet can be accessed through WAP browser. Games are available with the device although its quality as compared with the Android devices is questionable. Camera capability is also limited with 2 megapixels strength where the results produced are not mind-blowing to say the least. Videos can be shot as expected but there is no access to a secondary camera. Battery is another department where the device struggles a bit with 1,000 mAh standard lithium ion battery back up to give only 3 hours of talk time although stand by time is pretty reasonable with up to 250 hours.

Operating system and UI

Samsung A 687 features a 2.6 inch display screen powered by the TFT resistive touchscreen technology that gives a mediocre 256k colors along with a resolution of 240 by 320 pixels and a pixel density of 154ppi.

Other Features

Music player and a video player rounds off the multimedia features for Samsung A 687. The music player is compatible with the formats - MP3, WAV, eAAC+ and WMA player whereas the video player is compatible with the formats - MP4 and H.263 player. The user can listen to the music through the loudspeakers or through the earphones that can be attached to the device with the help of a 3.5mm jack. There is no access to radio with the device. 

Camera

Samsung A 687 comes with a 2 megapixels camera that lets the user click pictures at a resolution of 1600 by 1200 pixels. The user can also shoot videos with the primary camera but there is no access to secondary camera whereas the results produced by the primary camera are not great either.

Connectivity

Samsung A 687 works with the WAP 2.0 browser that allows the user to access the web and download data including music files, games, images and videos. The user can also visit all the popular social networking sites including FaceBook and Twitter. There is no Wi-Fi facility with the device which may be a cause of concern for some.

Memory

Samsung A 687 is loaded with a microSD card slot that powers its 80MB miniscule memory to be stretched up to 32GB. The user can then keep a large collection of data including music files, games, images and videos without worrying about the memory space being too short. The user can also store up to 1000 phonebook entries.

Other Features

Samsung A 687 comes with lots of games and apps but falls short significantly as compared to other Android featuring devices in terms of quality. Still the user can download more games from the web as and when desired.

Battery

Samsung A 687 is backed by the standard lithium ion battery of 1,000 mAh that gives the user a standby time of up to 250 hours along with a talk time of up to 3 hours. This is another department where the device falls short specially in terms of the talk time provided.

Connectivity

Samsung A 687 offers lots of data connectivity features including the Bluetooth facility that makes sure that the user can connect with other devices wirelessly and exchange data with them where the data exchanged may include music files, games, images and videos. The USB port can also be used to transfer or retrieve data but to or from computer or laptops. The same process can be used to charge the device. The GPRS facility allows the user to keep track of the desired location which can also be done through GPS.

Other Features

Samsung A 687 when compared to Samsung Double Time has a smaller screen with the former featuring a 2.6 inch screen as compared to the latter's 3.2 inch display. Both the device feature the QWERTY keypad that slides out but from different directions. The camera strength is better with Samsung Double time as compared to Samsung A 687 with the former powered by the 3.2 megapixels camera while the latter has 2.0MP camera sensor. But both the devices lack a secondary camera. Samsung A 687 does not feature the Android operating system that Samsung Double time does. Battery strength is better with Samsung Double Time with 1,200 mAh as compared to Samsung A 687's 1,000 mAh. Consequently Samsung Double Time offers almost double the Talk Time with 6 hours as compared to the Samsung A 687's 3 hours.

Other Features

Samsung A 687 is a pretty old devices, almost 3 years old to be precise. The device is really for those who are not that fussy over owing the latest Android device. The device for them would fall within a reasonable range. The screen of 2.6 inches is pretty modest and so is the rest of the features and that is why it is for those who just want a decent cell phone to cater the basic needs.
