Few weeks I've spend testing devices for taking photo/video documentary. You know, mobile is more often in Your pocket ready to work than any camera. I've made many tests with N97, Omnia HD, N85, S8300, iPhone, Pixon12, xPeria. So, I had S8300 for a few days and then sold out cause of poor battery life. 1h45min of video recording with full battery was to short for me. I sold it out ant tomorrow I will receive new one. Why. Because none of mentioned above devices good results in both photo & video category. S8300 from my experience is the only devise giving fine quality pic and best video in mobiles. iPhone is really fast, gives great video, macro and ok pic but S8300 is better and cheaper. Of course there are some disadvatages in all mentioned phones. But as second handset in my pocket S8300 will do a great job. For long talks I have E52 for its best battery life.
Lyd, 23 Feb 2010I have lost service a few times and have had to remove and re-insert sim card to fix problem. ... moreIntermittent SIM connection? Watervapour or pollution dirtying the contacts most likely. Clean the SIM and the gold contacts on the phone with an alcohol wipe or cottonbud and meths. Good luck

miaka, 19 Feb 2010is this fone able to use touch screen while texting? or just using keypad?Yes touch screen can be used for texting.
Note that the phone needs to be in the closed position. Once you are in the create message screen tap the 'black' message section of the screen and it will bring up the touch keys.
Some people think that it is slower then the keys so they don't use it. I find there is a small delay but if you type your message without waiting for each letter to come up you will actually find it catches up to you. it takes a bit of getting use to
Hey can v use a higher mAh battery ..... ?? It will solve the battery problem i think??

Suprising you guys are facing a lot of problems with the S8300. Well i have been using this fone for 11 months and haven't faced problems on battery life, camera (you need to know how to change pic resolution settings) great pics and video. My son who is a lettle less than 2 throws the fone at times and its still perfect. I had a choice between the I-phone and the S8300 i choose the later, the best fone i came across no regrets, now my bro-in-law wants one S8300.
USE THE FONE WITH CARE IT SERVES YOU WELL.
