I bought this phone for 2 months, this is a very good camera phone, it takes good pictures and videos, yap... and the next good thing is sms, very easy to type msg and bigger in sms text size, other than these, others are very common, nothing special.
I used PDA phone like HP,O2,Dopod and HTC for many years, I bought this phone because I need to have a good camera phone for my music lesson and to take some street performance, if you think 3.2 - 5MP is more than enough, don't waste $$$ to take this phone, if you like to install games, software, don't take this phone. if you need GPS, don't take this phone (very troublesome), if you need WIFI, don't take this phone. This phone can install java games, but it may not be the same "size" as you see online.
Think twice before you buy.
you would be stupid to buy this phone on 18 month contract, the software is not finished and lacks polish.
rather wait and buy the omnia hd .
i have a question: does anybody install like a tomtom on the pixon? and does it works? because there is a gps in the mobile, but i hearded some bad feedback about the gps.

Have had the pixon for exactly a week now. HAs been good in some while being pathetic in others.
However, I wanted to share about a nasty jar the phone gave last nite. The samsung website, manual & box all say the phone can take 8gb micro sd.
so, i ordered a 8gb off ebay which i got in my hand sterday. I filled it up with 375 mp3s,10 pics & around 20 divx files, which all added upto 6gb. Put it into my phone & all hell broke loose!!! The phone just went awry & kept restarting..i had shut it off by yanking off battery...reduced the stuff to around 4gb...nope...nothing happening...same trouble..so brought it down to 3.25gb & then it FINALLY WORKED...then i went through playing files,looked likethere were no probs..until i had an issue with one of my mp3 files.it just froze & kept restarting again...so then somehow manged to delet the file & then kept playing mp3s all day long with no issues.
I wanted to ask if others had faced this issue...phone seems to very good on all other aspects...please share if anyone else had memory probs.
Just a querie does any body know weather thsi phone can download mxit? it's a java application.. from what i've read it won't be able to.. and that is some major ass BUll$^!* so please just confirm that it won't or will be able to download a java app

But it is just one or two years since Samsung let you customize the message tones, so i guess it takes them a long time to understand what people want.

Or else you can go for nokia N97.let the phones come in market and see their features, compare and then go for the phone which suits your taste.
anon32135468tr, 13 May 2009on wat os does this phone run windows or symbian???? plz let me know asapit has got samsung's proprietary operating system known as touch wiz system. This is ridiculous that samsung has kept it closed and not open to other people to make softwares for it as symbian, windows or even newly launched adroid system has got that flexibility.shame samsung.
Today my pixopn came up with a box that states 'no event' that I cannot get rid of. I can move it to the bottom of the screen but there is no option to get rid of it. This is annoying.
Has anybody else come across this?
so which is better? pixon or renoir? my fren's renoir tend to lag when typing message.. does that happen to pixon ?
Zealot, 14 May 2009On my Pixon I can only save 250 sms in my inboxso this phone we cant access to the net rite?
I fully agree with SK. Apart from that I cud not install Java applications on the phone. Any idea how to do this or this is also not supported!!

Hi all, I got the pixon since last 4 days. My views-
First day – very excited to have a upgrade from my old LG viewty. Played for almost full day with pixon.
Second day onwards – the excitement vanished as I found that it is having only a good camera , video recording and web browser . In other areas I found my viewty scored more than pixon.
For ease of use , in looking for sub – sub menus,
locking system of veiwty while watching movies on the go so that you don’t get so many options with the slightest touch on the screen,
Searching for contacts , I was amazed that pixon doesn’t offer searching by alphabets typing. It only has one slider on side which takes you from one alphabet to other and once you reach that alphabet you are left on the mercy of scrolling down to long lists before you finally get to your desired contact.
Moreover I could not get voice through my Tv when I transferred the videos to usb device and tried to watch it on TV through any standalone DVD players with USB port. It shows “ audio codec not supported”. Viewty videos played without any problems.
I am still looking how to get the multi tasking done on pixon. Say if am using contacts menu and simultaneously if I want to open message menu, how to do that? Any help in this regard will is welcome.
Video quality – I am getting smooth ness in video files ( it doesn’t look like 30 fps ) when I play in on computer or TV. I could not understand ( I am recording with 720x480 size).
Still I am getting to the other aspects of the phone will update you all with new findings or observations, till then bye. sk
