If this phone is to be compared to Samsung C5212, which do you think is better.
Philips X710 or Samsung C5212
Does anyone know if this phone is available in Philippines? How much does this phone cost.
Everything is good except the very poor navigation key in the center. Always stuck with the "ok" button when I'm not ok (it's a cross navigation key around the ok button).
I like this dual-on sim!! Even so, it could be better if it's a quadband plus umts/hsdpa (some country like japan has only 3g network)-- to make it a "real" world business phone though ;). It would even better if it has no camera at all. Strong battery, dual sim, no camera, quadband + umts/hsdpa, unlimited phonebook and message memory---my kinda business phone!! Make it one for me, Philips!
I used to have the Philips 747(my first digital) and it was indestructable,..worked anywhere,...
I like the stuff that the X710 can do,..now where do I get one in Australia?
Never had anything but problems with other brands,...
Philips are business phones in Europe. Most people in europe prefer a simple phone. It is in asia mostly that people look for a multi tasking phone. A phone that does the job of PDA, phone, camera, entertainment suite.
Philips phone division has been purchased by China company and so the models are "chinese" as people said. Philips have a funny knack of designs where they give a 2 mega pixel cam and 30 MB memory and no card..
I think right now the company is just trying to create a niche for itself. If you go for a PDA phones you can have phones as cheap as 100$ (chinese models) to about 1000$ and above. But when it comes to long battery life, Only few phones can come close to philips and xenium brand is famous for that
I have got one from my friend, the size is like samsung D780, the battery is realy powerful, I put 2sim card into it, and it works around 1week!!
There are only two features for Philips phone: Long lasting battery and black colour. That's it! May be Philips market segment is the bussiness men but unfortunately, Philips's design has no bussiness taste as many other bussiness phones. The European design Philips phones have gone, now Chinese style Philips phone is so bad.

Please help me out here. Apparently this X710 is smaller than the D780 and packs more features than the latter one. Thanks in advance.

Philips are usually good in design but here they really made it bad. I was really disappointed. The features are good though.
