I have actually had this phone for about a year now...
I just read that someone put it doesn't have flash?! UH, HOW COME I WATCH VIDS ON YOUTUBE ON IT THEN?! How about you only write about what you know instead of giving people false info! YouTube vids are in .flv format. That is flash video. You need flash to be able to view them! Duh! Therefore, it DOES have it!
Only thing I don't like about the phone is the camera button. I am left handed so I often (very often!) press the button by mistake and it gets on my nerves. Positioning it on the top of the phone or something would be better.
Touch response is excellent. You can type as quickly as you want, for example and it will keep up easily and respond quickly. One of my friends was saying her phone is better, an LG Pop, but she has to wait about 3 seconds after touching something for it to come up, I don't- haha!.
Very good colour quality and detail, nice noises and built in tones. Easy to use and looks good on your desk. Easy, one-button access to Facebook, Myspace, eBuddy, web browsing on anything you want from eBay to your email provider... You can change which widgets are on your home-screen too, making this even easier.
Would be better if it came with some games, instead you have to download Samsung Kies and get them that way or download them via the phone's own internet browser, but I'd rather not use credit on that. I know Kies says it doesnt support the Monte, but I emailed Samsung, it does and I've used it successfully, often.
Good Bluetooth - my old phone was useless at discovering other devices... Oh and an image editor is always a welcome bonus.
I like that I can use MP3s as ringtones and message tones as well. My old phone wouldn't let you have a custom SMS text tone. It had to be one that was built in.
And if someone from Samsung ever reads this (yeah right)... NO ONE LIKES A PHONE THAT LOCKS AS SOON AS YOU CONNECT TO A CALL - You should be able to turn off this feature if you want to. Fair enough its touch screen and you could press something by accident with your ear, but its a pain in the backside to have to unlock it every time you have to go through automated call centres!
That and the camera button are the only two things I can fault and to be honest, if you're right handed, you wont have the button problem and if you dont often have to call, call centres (lucky you), you wont have much of a problem with the auto call-lock either.
Money well spent. When I get a new phone it'll be because I've worn this one out but certainly not because I am unhappy with it.
