Technologically identical to the Spirit 687, the Spirit 697 LM has the same glossy black facade and mid-range plastics as before, giving it a similarly unflattering finish. Fortunately, the matte 5-inch touchscreen (it's resistive, not multitouch) has 480 x 272 resolution, which is a step up from last year's model with a bright and overall pleasing display.

Does it have enough on its side to correct the shortcomings of the Spirit 687?
