I went to CarphoneWarehouse and played around with the Samsung U600 for about 15 minutes. My quick conclusion, the operating system was quite sluggish and when the touch buttons were pressed, you sometimes think, did i touch the button properly or not? The pressure required for the touch buttons is not much, but i ended up pressing the buttons too hard, because i had a few instances where i touched the buttons and i did not receive a response from the phone. All in all, i was going to buy the phone sim free but to be honest, in my opinion the phone is 'definitely' NOT worth £200. Existing users of the phone may say that you can get 'used' to the phone very quickly, but in my opinion, i could not see myself using the phone 6 months down the line.
Note: I am aware i only used the Samsung U600 for a short amount of time, so do NOT flame as this post is my personal opinion however, buyers beware, TEST the phone before you buy, because before i went into the shop, i was convinced it was the right phone for me, when i came out, it was clearly not what i expected.
It is very obvious that you do not know how to operate and manipulate a advanced/high tech phone.
You better use a year 1990s model phones because that is compatible to you.
No comment about your post because everything you posted can be worked out.
What are you saying? Does the camera change its quality when the picture is taken? Sounds weird?
also that unlock thing when you are in a call. really annoying. means you can't quickly hang up and dial again without sliding the phone. yes i know its only the press of a button but it just makes it fiddly
i can't believe samsung's absolute mess they have made here
the security code for bluetooth is lame.
the fact you can't have vibe and ring for messages is rubbish.
why can't you remove the message sent tone?
you should be able to change the options on the soft keys.
the camera is never 3.2 mega pixels. the qulaity is lsot as soon as a pic is taken.
looks good though :rolls eyes:
i may say U600 is better than K800i when it comes to features.
but K800i wins over U600 on battery talk time capacity.
both have 3.15 megapixel cameras but k800 has a image stabilizer so it became cybershot and comes with a not so powerful xenon flash while U600 comes with a LED light.
Shooting videos? U600 captures CIF while K800-what they call ancient-QCIF resolution.
Connectivity- U600 has EDGE while K800 has 3G
anyways, its up to you to decide which one to choose.
Hi just got my samsung u600, great, i have installed the computer software (pc studio) but when i go to connect my phone it comes up on the screen saying -
cannot install this hardware, there was a problem installing this hardware: WMC ACM 1.00 App
An error occurred during the installtion if this device.
The data is invalid-
Can any one HELP me please!?!?!
wondering if its worth to change my SE k800i to this... hope some users here can advise me on this, thanks
Why is the phone market in America so Lame. None of the companies here offer phones like this. We have to purchase unlocked phones from a third party and forget about connecting online w/ the phones cuz they are not compatible.
I purchased a D600 two years ago from a third party source and one of the companies here just started carrying the phone!?
USA can really suck sometimes...
well maybe I have a duff battery as mine soes not last a full day, although I was using the features on the phone (radio, wap, MP3, camera) rather than just using as a phone for calls and texts.
The [G] on the screen is only to notify the User that they are within a GPRS area. If the user were to go into an Edge area then the Blue [G] would change to a Red [E]
This does not drain the Battery like some others have suggested.
Just got my u600 yesterday, totally impressed!
Great looks, easy to use, battery is nowher near as bad as some people make out and so what if the "G" symbol is pemanantely on screen.
I am converted, Nokia who!!!!
I don't think you can switch off the GPRS 'G', I have just spent ages looking though my U600 settings & there is no option to switch off. Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong.
hey, i am deciding on buying either sony ericsson k800i or this samsung u600, but i am undecisive. does the samsung u600 have interchangable faces?
sony ericsson k800i has 3g, a front camera and you can change the face cover but its chunky
but the samsung is slim and attractive yet a short battery life, but i cannot get over the great look!
some help please?
Please can somebody help me! I cannot figure out how to switch of the GPRS . . . the G appears on the screen and its annoying me. How can i switch this off???
You said that the gold and red colours were available. Have they actually been released yet?
i can set the alarm, wakeupcall, when in silent mode - AND IT GOES OFF!
That's the thing i said, the alarm goes off!
What firmware do you have?
You can find out by typing *#1234#
I have been on other forums and many other people can't get the phone to ring in silent mode. ( silent mode is is holding the # key down )
Tell me step by step how you did it, so i can check if i wen't through the right procedure. i have had every model Samsung from d500 d600 d900 and u600 and have never had a problem with this.
