Good looking, quite capable, and gives users a lot of flexibility

from MobileBurn

But when you sum up all the hits and misses in the S740 (and S743), it seems clear that the phone is still a real winner. It's good looking, quite capable, and gives users a lot of flexibility when it comes to text input. Sure, the UI is a bit long in the tooth, and the web browser is archaic by modern standards, but if you are a fan of Windows Mobile smartphones, the easy one-handed functionality and compact form factor of the S740 are sure to please. We give it a "Highly Recommended" rating, even if we still prefer Samsung's SGH-i617 BlackJack II by a slim margin....
