i have a question..does anyone have trouble with the sliding mechanism of this phone...mine's about two weeks old and it begins to slide horizontally very slightly. when the phone is in neutral position (meaning slided down) i can move the top layer about 1mm although it always return to its normal position....so i was just wondering if this was normal
Hey can anyone tell me what are the settings for this phone to activate the mobile television thing
i just googled "u600 vs u700" and all it gave me was a shetload of information i already found here. i'm planning to buy one or the other and need some advice. some questions, any answer would be GREATLY APPRECIATED.
1. does the u700 have the same problem with slow text messaging as the u600?
2. does the "mirror" screen on the u700 make it more difficult to see the screen due to high reflectivity?
3. how often does the problem with text messaging on the u600 show up?
4. do any of these break really easily when dropped?
any other questions i should consider?
i have an e900 and love it. really, SUPER THANKS for any response.
Just bought this phone yesterday..sleek, stylish n sexy.. but still getting to term with the functionality as its the first time im using a samsung...

I have a Sony Ericsson Z520a I was looking to get a U600 my sony has 9 hour talk time and 400 hours standby..........
Am i getting a lemon with purchasing the U600
and be truthful is it truly the worst phone some of you have had.....
Y Gsmarena didnt published any review for this best phone which has all necessary features with less price.
Use wavepad software to make mp3 songs to amplify then transfer it to phone. The sounds are little bit louder and cool.
Its my partner's new phone, she initially preferred the v3im she had before but is getting usde to it. I agree the C button is a bit too sesitive. Can anyone tell me or point me in the direction of how I can download games from .jar files? On my SE I just drag and drop and the handset gives an option to install. The samsung has an option to activate but its greyed out.
Anyone know how i can make the ringtone volume any louder. HAve tried a secret menu that I could use on my D900 but won't work on this phone.
I must say this is a good phone and love every thing about it all i am missing is the sd card
The battery life improves day by day.
The loudness of mp3 can be improved by using mp3 amplifiers.
But the camcorder doesnt have pause.Is there is anyway to pause.
If i send message i cant able to cancel message while sending.Do anyone face same problem.
Is there is way to keep screen saver?
One thing i compared with N series phone no one can beat screeen resolution. I am enjoying it daily.
Anyone who claims the battery last for 8 hours should not be depended upon for a review. I have three batteries okay. Not one has ever lasted more than about 2.5 hours. I have to agree with AHF on the camera as well. The camera takes far longer than one second to take a pic no doubt about that.
Ones again, I do really like this phone, easy, quick and fancy, BUT:
How can I put the ' sign (often used in Italian) in non t9 mode?
How can I silent it when I don't want to answer immediately and I don't want to reject the call?
Thanks in advance.
I should say this phone is best of the best.
Camera and mp3 player both of them are good.
The sound is loud enough and clear!
heh great post Febi :)
I think I`ll but this phone but the only thing i`m not sure is about the themes...is there anybody who can told me can I download new ones and not use just the black in the phone :)
just tested a dummy unit today.. and the sliding mech and keypad are pretty good for me. I just need to test out the touch-sensitive buttons next and the overall experience of the phone..
Well there are many negative points about the phone which is not acceptable.I had this phone for 1 week and spend 24 hours with it and really love it.
About the phone:
The phone looks really stylish,lite weight,touch pads are good,Screen resolution is really fantastic. Overall its a good phone for small peny.
Mp3 clarity is really good in head phones than in speakers (not loud enough).
It takes less seconds to take pictures like digital cameras. If it is slow to take snaps then click the camera button completely it will take in 1 sec which is like Nokia and SE phones.
The camera clarity is really very good and it is brilliant than SE 3.2 mp phones.
But in indoor lights not as expected
Video clarity is also good.
The screen resolution of the phone is really superb which i never seen in any other phone.
To compare screen clarity,if u see the screen from all the four direction you can see the same color of the screen. Whereas in Nokia if u see the screen in different direction it'll look like negative. This shows the screen clarity is really good than Nokia.
Message and keypad:
For messaging the keypad suits very well.If u use the ohone for 1 week u'll feel the phone is realy good for messaging.
The gif files used for words in the messages are really new for me and it is not in anyother phone like nokia and SE.
The graphics for all the applications is really cool i relly love t use it.
The phone is not slow as others said it is really when compared wth Nokia N series.Trust me this phone really worth than N series phone. Simply it is cheap stylish and best.
Only one themes is available its bad.How to download themes can anyone help me?
The keypad locks for 5 seconds i dont know how to solve it?
There is no facility to keep screen saver i think it is common for all samsung phones.
For the first day i continuosly used for 8 hours the battery comes to zero. Next day it comes for 12 hrs. I think it is better for multimedia phones. But battery backup is not that much impressive.
The battery charges through USB also it is really good for software engg like me.
There are many options to save battery.Keep the brightness of the phone very low.It looks good even in 1 points.
The keypad light can be off during morning. This can save some power.
Atlast this is a diferent stylish phone than SE Nokia.It as many features for just 13k. Go for it.
hmm... thank ahf.. a lot more reasons for me to test this thing out before i buy it. I have a my sights on other phones now..
The build quality is pretty good. This is not a sloppy phone by any means. It is lean and sexy. Actually the reflective front gives an impression that the screen is larger than it is. The screen itself is wonderful, and the graphics are top notch. Having said that, I have noticed a handful of dead pixels and my u600's outer plastic screen had a crack in it within one day of use. The sliding mechanism is okay, but not nearly as robust as other Samsung or Nokia phones. But this is why the phone is so light (86 grams) and thin. There is some slight lateral movement on the slide itself. It takes a small but adequate amount of upward or downward pressure to actuate the spring mechanism into opening or closing the phone. But keep in mind the phone is made out of plastic. So the phone bends accordingly. As for texting, I mentioned this is the worst possible phone for that. I am a texter myself. I found this phone to be rather frustrating to use as such. The delete button is the end call button (which is touch sensitive). Sometimes if you hit the erase button one time too many, you end up back in the main screen. So for example, if you were writing a word, than you decided to erase it, and you hit the erase button beyond the amount of characters in the word (I know what you are thinking, oddly enough the reverse button is a different button, so you have to erase using the end button until you erase the word, than you have to switch to the reverse button to back up beyond that word) the phone goes back to the main menu!?!?!? The space button and the button that capitalizes the word are also improperly placed at the bottom left and bottom right. It is very uncomfortable. Than there is an extra button you have to press to add a character beyond ,.!?. (whereas other phone let you to select a character by pressing the same button until you see it) It is really pretty crazy. You end up having to press so many different buttons to complete a proper sentence.
