Samsung J700 Vs Samsung G600

Being roughly similar in terms of general appearance, both due to the fact that the Samsung J700, like the Samsung G600, is a sliderphone, as well as the general configuration of the keys, both these mobile phones do bear a striking resemblance to one another. Discounting their appearances however, there are drastically, and just as striking, differences between the phones that make a comparison of features pretty heavily tilted in one direction.

Comparing Features of the Samsung J700 and Samsung G600

Seeing as the size and profile are pretty similar, as too is the weight, the most obvious difference on the outside at least would be the display itself. By using a 2 inch TFT screen with 65,000 colours, the Samsung J700's screen really does fall short of the 2.2 inch TFT screen with 16 million colours that the Samsung G600 uses. This, of course, is but the first hint of things to come.

Moving onwards to the camera, the G600 has one of those amazing 5.0 megapixel cameras at its disposal, complete with an autofocus, flash and digital zoom. Tragicly, the Samsung J700 has to settle for a 1.3 megapixel camera that has neither the flash nor autofocus. Unlike the difference between, say a 3.2 megapixel camera with all the trimmings and a similar 5.0 megapixel camera, the difference between a 1.3 megapixel camera with no trimmings and a 5.0 megapixel camera with pretty much everything, is truly apparent.

In terms of storage, again, the Samsung J700 only has 10 MB internally, and is forced to battle against the 40 MB that the Samsung G600 has to contribute. Both mobile phones include support for microSD cards, and to be completely honest, the internal storage is not too much of a problem considering that the bulk of storage space will inevitably come from the microSD card.

Most of the other differences are somewhat cosmetic in nature, with the Samsung G600 having various utilities such as the picture editor, that more than enhance the scope of functions that may be carried out.

One mans meat may be another mans poison, but clearly the Samsung G600 is ahead of the Samsung J700 in many ways, including its price tag. For all the features that it offers it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out exactly why the Samsung G600 is priced considerably higher than the Samsung J700.

In short, they are both different types of mobile phones that are geared towards differing types of users. On the whole, the Samsung G600 would be the much better option for anyone who regularly uses the photography features on their mobile phones, whereas the Samsung J700 is more for the many casual users that do not require a 5.0 megapixel camera for them to use.

If feature packed power and the ability to produce quality images using a mobile phone while at the same time having the functionality to be able to perform anything up to minor image editing, then the Samsung G600 provides all that, and more.
