    Both are pretty nice phones...

    Personally, I wouldn't get either but if you're looking for the better camera, go wtih the S710a. It also has a memory slot for your mp3s, whereas the sammy only has 100mb built in for everything. Some things to note on the S710a are mic. placement and slow menus - the mic is on the face of the phone so people will hear it anytime it rubs against your cheek. Also, the sammy is a bit smaller, but lacks bluetooth that the s710a includes Anyway, check them both out and play with both.

    I'm not a big fan of the S710 at all. But, it does have bluetooth which is a must for me.

    Both have been pretty big flops in our store. I think a lot has to do with the insane price on both, but they're coming down gradually.

    For the money, I'd go with the SMT 5600 that kungfu has in his avatar (black one)

    volume is superb, reception is good, but not stellar.

    Samsungs suck.

    Sony is better, because it has removable memory, nice camera, and bigger screen. Other features as well, but that's what sticks out to me.

    I would recommend S710a. You get 30 days to try it with cingular at retail stores.

    i ended up getting none of the above, though i was considering all of the above in addition to the treo 650.

    i've been the proud owner of a blackberry 7100g for the past week or so, and i guess i'm keeping it because i dropped the damn thing getting in my car yesterday and scratched the housing a bit. :(
