I have 2 J800's. The battery life is rubbish. The same battery fits in other Samsung phones, and I have tested it in them, where it lasts longer! I get 2 days before recharging (using Bluetooth on). I had an old Samsung SGH-411 which lasted a week! Also after 4 months my daughters phone's screen internally cracked while in her school bag causing it to go white with a black smudge of liquid crystal. Samsung refused to fix it under warranty, saying that it was impact damage. Cost of repair was greater than the purchase price ($100AUD in November 2009). Now I have a spare battery, headset and charger. I think the screen is poorly designed and cheap, allowing it to be easily damaged. I remember the old Nokia 3110's were designed tough! Why are new phones so flimsy?

Just to add, some of you might not be well aware that Sony and samsung has a patent sharing agreement for quite sometime now. Except Sony's PSP and Samsung's Home Networking, they share each and every tech. Coz they think its waste of money to have parallel RnD on same subject. Its for Nokia to fear. cheers!

Boring line up tbh... The point of these phones is beyond me. As for Nokia releasing better phones with new specs... please every phone is still the same as another just uping MP or adding wifi. Samsung atleast released the i900 which will be a class leading feature phone, with its only competitor being the Xperia, which it will kill without a problem. And no it does not look like a C905 and was announced before the C905... Just this is official one now. Brands don't copy each other, they all just use similar platforms they know will sell. With the exception of apple who are completely different.
