This phone-kid is strange.. no MP camera, no MP3 player of my good... for this expensive price,SAMSUNG should make better phones!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm in Australia and just bought the Serene amongst all the iPhone 3G hype. I own an iPod and a MacBook Pro so even though the iPhone is cool I don't need it. The Serene is definitely a designer phone. It's not intentioned to compete with the current range of cheap plastic phones on the market so while some people may question it's price tag compared to it's features the best I can say is it is like choosing to buy your jeans from K-Mart or D&G, they're still jeans but quality, craftsmanship and style is the difference between the two. The round dial is a breeze to use for both navigating the menu and sending text messages. It takes a little getting use to, but within a day I had it down pat. Sound quality is amazing! I have never used a mobile phone that is so crystal clear and with great reception (but then it is Bang & Olufsen). Bluetooth set up was no issue with my Mac pairing within seconds and setting up SMS and MMS was a breeze because the Serene already has it within it's software for each mobile network, all I had to do was select which one I am using in the settings menu and click activate. The Serene is light weight and compact so carrying it around in my pocket or in my hand is a pleasure. The casing has a velvety smooth finish that is truly unique and is scratch proof as is the tempered glass screen. The Serene is a phone that states "I am successful and refuse to blend in with the crowd". Owning one is a pleasure. You get what you pay for and I certainly did with my Serene.
Have owned this phone since the release date over here in Australia. Up until today I still haven't gotten the hang of messaging...
i love them , just i love them love serene, love serenata love bang.........
I've had this handset in my hands. It's so impressive...
Not VGA camera, it's 3.2 MP camera.
This cell is so different at what we're used to see...
Lets be frank shall we. This phone is not for those who care about texting with or taking photos with their phone. This is an charming phone and does just what it was made to do..function as a mobile phone, and look chic. There is no need for those "teenage ammenities" when the point is to say, "I'm successful!" It stands out in a crowd as tasteful, elegant and posh. The functionality of it in itself is brilliant and for those few individuals who wish NOT to hear "back that thang up" in a crowded subway, this is your phone. At roughly $1300 one can certainly feel good at turning up their nose when placing a call.
type...I meant E-type Jaguar! I'm looking at buying a E-class. Silly me.
This phone is not meant to be for "the masses" it's rare and exclusive. It's not the most fully loaded phone iv'e ever owned but by god is it the coolest. the camera not bad but awkward to use. If you can afford this phone you will probably have a 10meg+ SLR camera, a 60gig ipod and a nice car (BMW)+ and a fit bird. Seriously guys, a daewoo matiz has elec windows, aircon, airbags, abs and even sat nav..... the E-class Jaguar doesn't. Which would you choose though??? I rest my case. Thank you. I'm now off to the Opera in my BMW.
B&o are best known for there design AND quality! I just bought the Serene .. i llllllllllove it , the automatic opening thing is so cool. If ur lookin for functions such as mp3, hi res camera, 3g and LAN , u got the wrong idea buying this device, B&o was aming for design and simplicity with this device.
If ur thinking like me.. "sick of ur ugly candy bar , rarely use the mp3 and camera on ur device" then it's time for change! no1 does it better ..B&o
i think d battery talk (straight)time should be able 2 go beyond the three & half hours considering the amount it cost. i think B&O just wanna be different 4 nothing.B&O is known 4 design more than quality.Let's stop fooling people.
This is PATHETIC. I'm sorry but I see NO logic in buying this thing whatsoever if there is a phone that exists with WIDESCREEN movies, youtube, 8 gigs, full HTML browser, touchscreen, etc. for HALF of what this ugly thing costs. If it was less expensive then of course but for what this thing costs it should come with ALL of what I just named with more. It cant even play MP3s! IT DOESNT EVEN HAVE REAL RINGTONES! I dont even like apple but this is a ridiculous price for a phone that is EXTREMELY behind the times, ANY phone a quarter of the price are much better that this GIMMICK they call "classy".
i love unique things and this phone is really too unique. i really love to have it. may i know its price in Pakistani Rupees plz??its of great design. Weldone Samsung(Y)
l wanna know how to use my phone.. lm sure there are alot of thıngs to learn about my phone but lm just usıng ıt sımple. ıf you send me an turkısh using information l wıll be glad. thank you.
