Does anybody know how to get a sat nav application on this phone, preferably Route 66.. The S8300 is featured on the route 66 website but with no download or purchase available... just a PC application that doesn't do anything until the phone has the software on it..
well i've given up on samsung with this phone. bought it the day it came out, tried to persevere with it but the lack of D pad / cursor arrows, wifi, apps, upgradability, personalisation and SHOCKING battery have out weighed the great camera and video, excellent screen and potential with the form factor.
I've bought a 5800 Nokia Tube and am so far highly impressed. Much more finished than the Samsung software. Just have to get used to the camera downgrade but apart from that i aint looking back.
Back to the mother manufacturer i go!!!
can someone please let me know how is the reception or range for this phone, will it work everywhere?
I m using this phone for about 2 weeks. i had little trouble in bignning in switching from Motorla to Samsung, But after use of 2 days i got my hands on. Its good phone to buy nice features. Screens resolution is just stunning, very bright and detailed images. Camera is out standing. The only issue is Battery as it lasts maximum 2 days with very normal use. probably its gona last couple more days if you just dont use the phone. Anyway if you can keep up charging every next day you gonna love this phone. Phone could have been loaded with more games. Lake of QWERTY keybaord will badly hurt people who use alot text messaging. but for normal users Onscreen 3x4 touchpad will work. Over all i m satisfied with phone and I DONT REGRET for buying this. www.Samsungmobile.com offers 300+ points when you register your phone and then you can download some cool ringtones and other stuff in exchange of points.
I am holding it from last 20 days. Its camera is prity. but battery backup very very..... bad. Iam using bsnl north service in it. but not saitsfied with gprs setting..... very slow speed can any one help me by mailing me its manual gprs settings my id is email@example.com
Well i've just got my s8300 last april 24 this year and all i can say its superb but the battery life last only a day..otherwise im fully satisfied with this phone ^^. I rate it 9/10 for Samsung.
What about Wifi? it would have made the mobile perfect !!! one is so use to tht network ......
Totally agry...Nokia is finished now!They have no smar,stylish strong models!!!
after seeing this phone the nokia has to ashamed on them that this is called a phone not the crap they are making called phones they making just pieces of cheap plastic nokia you are nearly finished bye b ye
Anonymous, 29 Apr 2009The delivery report comes through as a message - unlike the system adopted by the newer NokiasThanks.
What about sending a message? Do you have wait for it to send the message before you can do anything else or does the sending task minimise?
Its all about STATE OF ART..............
superb design and colour combinations.....

Just wondering, how does the Tocco Ultra handle the delivery reports? I have a soul and I'm really annoyed at the way a delivery report comes through as if it was a message like with the old Nokia phones. I much prefer the system of new Nokias where it's a seperate report.
I'd be interested in knowing this please as I'm considering buying this phone.
siavash, 28 Apr 2009compare i8510 & s8300 ?s8300 is a really nice, slick phone, the interface is slow but if you can live with it (after getting used to some quirks over a few weeks, I like it, it's more annoying when you're in the "new phone" phase and you just want to play with it) it's a brilliant phone. The screen is simply stunning and the pictures/videos it takes are wonderful too. Battery life is good unless you spend all day playing with it; mine lasted only a day when I first got it but now it lasts a lot longer, but it's hard not to mess around with it!
The i8510 is a better all round phone; it has a better OS and the games and apps it can run are fantastic. However, it is a lot bigger and more of a pocket-bulge. Also the screen is nowhere near as nice. The decision is whether you want a more stylish flashy slick phone or a more solid workhorse of a phone.
never ever buy this phont this is a piece of crep go for nokia n 85 it is far better product than this.
