Samsung SGH-A517 (AT&T) review: Samsung SGH-A517 (AT&T)

 

Samsung SGH-A517 (AT&T)

The Samsung SGH-A517 has a decent feature set that includes Bluetooth, a megapixel camera, and a music player. It has impressive talk time as well.

The Samsung SGH-A517 had unreliable call quality and the design is rather unremarkable.

The Samsung SGH-A517 has a fair set of features, but as a cell phone, it doesn't make the best calls.

Very small and light ; Decent feature list ; Attractive styling ; Easy to use

Short battery life ; No 3G support

The Samsung SGH-A517 is a great phone for those looking for a device that could easily be mistaken as high end. It is a perfectly average phone that looks as though it is on the cutting edge. A great device if you can find it for a good price.

I love SAMSUNG cell phones and always have but this phone as a 1.3 mega pixel camera and it amazes me that the screen resolution is so poor for a camera of such good quality. The pictures that the camera takes is better then the actual screen savers...
