i agree the W910 is a great option for D900 upgrade (actually it is my second choice after the w890).
it is very surprising that Samsung do not keep the trend of supplying sexy slim phones.
they started creating big tanks like Nokia:-)
We will all have to switch over to SE pretty soon...
take a look at this amazing preview:
Why not try the W910i, it has a 2.4' screen bigger than samsung TFT. but it is a very d3edicated walkman phone. but camera is only 2.0mega pix.
I had U600 and G600. U600 is more for women and sensor keys are not good, difficult to use. G600 I find very good and not big...in the hand smaller then D900 but not so thin. It looks and feels like metall phone...there are some of metall, it weight is more then 105 gr.
W890 is good but I think not available yet.
Camera is 100% good by SE...this is really not problem. I afraid of autorotate sensor like key sensor...it could be problem.
My opinion is stay by samsung weil you will find out no slider, not so fashion like Samsung etc. G600 could be good choice for Samsung user :)
G600 has horisontally photos with fast zoom! (D900 not), G600 has ringing profiles like SE, G600 has user created themes...something like SE. Battery life is like D900. G600 has light sensor (only G600 of samsung phones...not G800). Video is VGA.
Attention: charger and usb and jacks are new and not compatible with D900 or another models U series...it does mean you can not use old car charger or TV out cable for videos on TV.
I like also SE but last couple years I use Samsung and if I buy something else I always change it for samsung :)) I don't know...once samsung always samsung! You must decide. Bye
lest day i want to upgrade my D900 that is over a year old now - what Samsung have to offer?
G600 and G800 are way too big.
U600 measures well but looks very bad.
very cheep plastic looks :-(
bad battery life and touch keys :-(
SE W890 supply much smaller phone (wich is great for me) even comparing to the D900.
alsmost same screen size.
stainless steel body to replace the D900 very plasticy body.
better music player for sure (Walkman 3).
totally cool features like the auto sensore for rotating the screen :-)
only disadvantage is actualy the camera that is also 3MP but lack some features like autofocus (that has big latency) and flash wich is a crappy LED in the D900.
what do you say?
All models are available...G600 I had for 2 weeks and bought again D900.
D900i I bought befor G600 but it doesn't have picsel viewer and rear side is of plastic, not like D900 or D600.
W890 I find very nice. TFT isn't big like by Samsung new models and I'm not satisfied with SE louspeaker by hearing sopmebody...to quite. I think W890 best choose of SE...thin, fashion. I prefer Samsung slide phones...befor Samsung clamshell phones like sgh-2400, A100, T400, E700...
PRIZM. To come out of dictionary, in "new message" mode press and hold star key. Re keypad tones - the oldest question going - tap in to box at foot of this page and search.
can some one tell me. how can i disable to the dictionary in D900. and keypad sound.????
how do you rate upcoming models.
we have pretty similar taste...
i also picked D900 as #1 this is what i own one :-)
but what about a D900 upgrade?
what do you think about the upcoming W890?
i do not see good alternatves in the ultra compact category except for SE...
My choice - top 10 (I used all of them like private-multymedia user and also bussines-user).
Last 10 years I prefer Samsung (simply: thiny fashion models+userfriendly interface+loud loudspeaker), then SE and Nokia+Motorola at 3rd place:
1. Samsung D900
2. Samsung G600
3. Samsung Z400
4. Samsung D600
5. Samsung D520...old model
(another models like U600, U700, E900, with sensor keys are very anoying thing)
6. Sonyericsson K800
7. SonyEricsson W880
8. Nokia N95
9. Motorola Krzr K3
Best phone ever!
Very nice thiny design, elegant. You can put your video like caller ID that is very nice if somebody rings you.
Viewid messages are so nice thing to read messages..must try.
Loudspeaker is more than enough loud by ringing and also by hearing somebody.
If not read this forum and you will find codes for samsung to encrease volume.
TFT 2,15 inch is (trust me) maybe the best of all samsung (I tried G600, U600, D600). Camera 3,15MPIX is fareway better than by G600. G600 makes 5MPIX and photos are only aprox. 300-400kb...what is this 5Mpix? Those photosizes made my D500 with 1,3Mpix.
Realy guys, D900 makes even in the half dark room photos without dots. Photos in the sun or day are very useble like photocamera.
Hardware of D900 I find very hard(ware) and very hard to destroy. Slide mechanism is great, slide is half automatic.
Must say about design...all people who knows me ask about this phone...realy special mobile. Shiny black plastic looks very elegant and worthy.
Very important is back side of phone...this is some kind of gummy like by D600 and realy good...you couldn't scratch them in 10years.
Video capturing is top top...352x288=QCIF and you can see like TV Programm horisontaly (press No. 1).
Battery life=3-4 days...you only has to set brightness of Display to 1 or 2 maximum and you has to set keyboard light on only in the day...this is advice to have very good battery life with this handset.
What to write about pros...MP3 player loud and nice, a lot of shortcuts.
Must say Samsung makes very useable phones and very userfriendly menus...easy to work with, very nice by driving a car...easy to write messages, make phone call.
Display the best nowadays.
E-mail client, you can download Oprea mini browsser and you has internet like at home. Nice games, Phonebook 1000 contacts, easy to share with your PC. That is only 50% about this phone and now I must go to work.
Enjoy your SGH-D900 it is really very very good and beautifull phone 103x50x only 12,5mm...best hardware I had and saw ever!
its 1 yer that i have a d900. its a very good and lovable phone!!!
but i have a question about that: icant see the emoticons ( as messenger emoticons) on it.
may i have to download a special program from internet for it or activate an option in the my phone?
thanks for your helps
THIS IS THE QUIETEST FONE EVER!! ive had a range of other fones over the last 5 years and i have to say the mp3 player and loudspeaker are rediculously quiet... trust me this is a completely honest review.. i own the fone and have done for the past year..i have also had like 20 other fones (noki, sony ericsson, samsung etc...) and by far this is the quietest.. honestly... i can play an mp3 full blast and hear my own fart...
from Rajesh Tips and tricks guide:
How to turn off keypad tones?
To turn off the keypad tone, slide tone and power on/off tone TOGETHER, press down volume-keys on the left side of the phone till zero, from the MAIN SCREEN. This is the quickest, and is the right method, if you want to keep ‘Theme’ as the dialing display font.
Also you can turn off (or change) keypad tones (menu 9-4-2) power on/off tone (menu 9-4-4) and slide tone (menu 9-4-5) independently. Thereafter, pressing volume key will not affect the corresponding tone.
If the keypad tone menu in your phone is INACTIVE, go to display settings…dialing display…font type and change ‘theme’ to ‘normal’. Then go back to keypad tone menu to turn off/change tone.

it sounds like you have the issue i have with my new D900!
in order to confirm this please take a look at the picture of my cell phone:
if you zoom into the link (using the magnifier icon), you can see my phone only has very thin (hair wide) balck lines gathered in two vertical strips in the center of th screen.
is your phone usable?
does you screen look similar?
if so, i will let you know what i found out about this issue so far.
Hi, i recently purchased my SamsungD900 and was very impressed with it. However, my neice mistakely dropped my cell causing the LCD to crack resulting in the ink being distorted. I have shopped around trying to get a resonable rate to repair the damage which costs approximately R800 which i personally feel is ridiculous. Do i have any other options?
