how did te manage to squeeze a 5mp into that. by the way the SE k850 is way better. it has the US 3g bands
no doubt samsung has the best video and camera quality..and nokia and SE can't compete with its camera qualtiy..i swear.
Living in dark and dreary england, you really need a proper xenon flash to make full use of 5megapixel camera. shame.
looks good. got n95 at moment ,hope its a good phone.any idea on release dates yet........
This phone has 3G, look at the top corner in left, you can see small camera( i think that is 3G, and i hope so ;])
Nokia 6500 slider and the cheap 6267 will have VGA recording video, with hardware accelereator for video playback...
i have d900i with 262000 collors and battery life time is arrownd 2 -3 days, vith 16m collors i thinck it will be 1 day.
samsung put a li polimer battery........
Not normally a massive fan of Samsungs but this looks good. No tiny buttons, nice looking.
@fanatics: Wll just have to wait for the final version and then will know who was right. If G600 could record VGA at full 30fps, this spec would be an headline everywere. I still think that 100% G600 will record in VGA at 15fps and CIF at 30fps. But hey..that's my opinion.
Oh and apparently it DOES have 3G connectivity, for all those worried about it:
I'm surprised by the number of ignorant comments. A vast majority of people who present opinions here seem to have read very little about the device.
Personally, I have no use for 3G, but I can see why it would push others away from this product due to its lack thereof. Yes, it's another Samsung slider, but they've packed a hell of a sweet deal into a sleek looking package. A 5 mega-pixel camera with autofocus and an image stabilizer? That's a rare find with any phone, just as the N95 had been a prized gem when it was released. Nokia has their strengths, and they've certainly played to them, but where they've failed to impress (bulky hardware) Samsung seems sure to succeed.
I'll most certainly be buying it.
Excuse me but why is everyone saying this phone doesn't have 3G?? If that's a picture of it then it will have 3G as there's a videocall camera on the top left hand side! And as with all Samsung camera phones released since the E720 over 2 years ago this one will record CIF in 15fps or more, QVGA at 30fps and maybe it will be the first Samsung to record VGA!! Most Sony Ericsson phones record ONLY in QCIF which is really pathetic (176 x 144)! And why do Nokia insist on making most of their 3G phones with NO front videocall camera??!! That is just plain stupid. Samsung are my favourite phone manufacturer mainly because of design and the fact that they allow high resolution video recordings. Yes, the latest Nokias allow VGA recording but their designs aren't as good. Take a look at the 6233 for instance; NO videocall camera even though it's a 3G phone and terrible quality cos the back is way too creaky. Although it does have VGA recording.
GUYS take note: Users are content with what mobile handsets have to offer in terms of photo quality and are looking for improvements in the video recording department. The Samsung G600 promises to deliver CIF (352x288) resolution recording at full 30 fps, while at the same time it will be able to record even in VGA (640x480 pixels) resolution, but most probably not at 30 fps.
@dave_vl, who posted that G600 records VGA in 15fps, take a look to the article: "most probably not at 30 fps", so meaning it could be 30 fps and not a definite 15 fps. suit yourself.
As much as I love slider phones....this one is a failure.
All of Samsung's phones look the same. They use the same colors, same layout, same everything.
Their phones are just so cheaply made. They always try to go for the thinnest phones possible, and when they do, they sacrifice build quality.
The Nokia 6500 Slide blows this mobile away.
