I absolutely WOULD NOT buy this phone, I have had this phone in pink for approximately 3 months and now I can't use it.
From day one it would freeze all the time, especially when trying to use the WAP function. Decided i could live with this as I don't use WAP very often anyway and everything else seemed ok.
Well apart from the camera which I didn't like as there was a few seconds delay from pressing the button to take the photo to it actually taking the photo!!
Anyways, not my point, the point is for all those who use predictive text and the thought of going back to manual input is not only time consuming but a bit of a pain in the *rse! After 3 months this phone totally would not support predicitive text, everytime i try to write a message using predictive, it freezes then resets itself. What a complete nightmare!
After researching to see if this was a common fault i have found out that it is, and one samsung it well aware of but yet they continue to distribute it?!
I'm taking my phone back to the store this week to see if they can sort it out, there is no chance I am going to be locked into an 18 month contract with a phone I can't use!!
Can i bring my u600 to samsung greenhills if the problem is wobbleness? will they fix it like new? coz before the lcd and keypad part are not wobbly.
anyone please answer...
thanks in advance.
If I have songs in my microSD card, can i create a playlist of songs in my microSD card? Would the phone be able to recognize the track info (artist, album, genre, etc) of the songs in my memory card?
I'm planning to buy a 512mb memory card. =)
Read my previous post down there.
I posted the telephone number of Samsung Mobile Shop Greenhills.
Mine has "Samsung" warranty, not the store warranty. If you bought it from authorized samsung dealers, you have a Samsung warranty. However, if you bought it from just a plain store, not an authorized samsung dealer, you have their "store" warranty.
Samsung warranty replaces damaged parts (like the flex or ribbon connecting the keypad and lcd) with authentic samsung parts for free. =)
It's better to get Samsung warranty than store warranty, I think, because this phone is delicate.
Here in Baguio, u600 costs around Php12,000 on authorized dealers like pinesmulti in SM, session road and CenterMall.
However you can buy it at Php 9,000+ in Tiongsan Telecom Shop of Tiongsan Harrison.
Hope it helps
I have this phone for a while now.
really an eye turner how ever, its touch buttons are quite sensitive and the springs quite fiddly. And the battery does not last long enough with heavy usage, I'm planning to buy an extended battery if i can find any.
The camera is good but also quite crappy, you'll nee to hold the camera still for 2-4 seconds in bright environment with ample lighting, 4+ seconds in dim situations.
thats too much for a U600.
its 9500 - 11000 in SM Baguio and other mall stores. Note, its BRAND NEW and not tiangge.
it also has the wty. and blahblahblah...
that mobile phone is unbelievable..I think this is the best mobile I've ever had. I love it! But only problem with that mobile is his display..after some time the display start to losing his connections between. That problem can be solved easily. But unfortunately I've lost it few days ago...I've almost cry =(
can anyone tell me how long the battery work with u plz i need an answer:(
I love the touch sensitive buttons!
Hope samsung will create more phones with touch sensitive buttons.
I am planning to buy in the future a full touch phone from samsung just like the Armani phone, but I think it's too expensive for a phone. Anyway, we have our pldt landline. Lol
I bought mine at Samsung Mobile Shop, 2nd floor, Bridgeway, Greenhills, SJ. It is near in the cellphone tiangge area.
I bought it for Php 12, 990 but accdg to them, the orig price is about 15k! Comes with 1week replacement if it has factory defect + 1 year warranty.
They are authorized dealer of samsung phones. They have a promo (that's why I was able to get about P2000 off) because of the celebration of Chinese new year. But the promo ended yesterday (Feb17), so I don't know the current price of the phone. I bought this yesterday and they said that they only have the garnet red color and the sapphire blue. I bought the red because i think the blue one is used for demo-ing the phone to their customers.
Try to call them at (02)-722-9535 and ask for the current price and stock.
DO NOT BUY IN GREENHILLS CELLPHONE TIANGGE! The sellers there are selling defective u600, but they are saying that it's brand new!! They only have 48 hours replacement of unit and only ONE MONTH warranty!!
You can also try to look for other authorized samsung phone dealers here:
I finally have my U600!!
I LOVE L.O.V.E. L-O-V-E the touch sensitive buttons of the phone! I got mine from a Samsung authorized dealer in Greenhills, Philippines. The only color left was red and I can't wait to buy, so I got no choice and bought red, but I am definitely happy with it! (I am a guy, but the red looks maroon or perhaps very dark red, imo)
The slider is not wobbly, but in case it gets wobbly in the future, I have my 1 year warranty.
I am doing my initial charge as of now so I can't use my phone. =( I plan to charge it initially for 12 hours.
The phone feels a "toy" for me rather than a "phone," because it has fancy color, very slim and weighs only about 85g (not sure).
I am very much satisfied with my first few hours using the phone. The touch sensitive keys do not bother me at all. You have to accept the fact that touch sensitive keys DO NOT HAVE TACTILE FEEDBACK. You just tap it like what you do on your mousepad in your laptop. Imo, many people expect the touch sensitive buttons to have tactile feedback and this is the reason why they get frustrated using them.
I am really certified samsung lover now.
For those who consider fashion without sacrificing the function, this phone is the bbest choice!
hey guys. i got the u600 a week ago and am getting paranoid about the slide function. it seems a little wobbly, is this a problem with the handset in that it could come off???
is the garnet red color suitable for a guy? It is not really bright red. It is dark red, perhaps maroon..
The audio is to low when playing back songs, can't save any file straight to the memory card, picture quality of a receieved picture is poor and the touch sensitive buttons are to sensitive. I move from a Nokia 6131 to Samsung U600 only to get very low audio and poor picture quality.
I have this phone kinda it has 2 more touch sensitive buttons though. Any idea why you dont have the one in the list i have?
Hi! I've got ti for 10 months now. So I'll just tell you things I don't like:
1. No profiles for ringtone settings, so it's sound or no sound options that I only use.
2. The headphones are really uncomfortable but you can only use the ones that come with the phone.
3. The touch buttons are a little too sensitive so you can accidentally touch the C button while navigating threw menues.
4. The battery life is poor.
5. You can lock text messages or files for example, but you can't lock the phonebook.
I would give it 8 out off 10.
