This is Adeel Hasan from Karachi, Pakistan.
I have a couple of queries to start off, regarding Samsung X-700.
a) Can we install MSN Messenger (Agile Messenger) in this phone?
b) Does this cell, limits Internet surfing at any point? I am using Nokia 3230, and there are certain sites such as http://gmail.com, which this cell does not support at all.
So, is there any restriction of this sort at Samsung X-700?
Please answer the queries.
Just bought the phone.Everything is good as if yet.Just bought it last night.But there is a problem which i consider as a serious disadvantage,i fail to recieve picture message via SMS on this phone from nokia or sony ericcson,although those 2 are compatible with each other on this issue.Is there anyway i can make it compatible for such picture messages?
you can play video in quite mode, and it will ask you if you want to play sound in quiet mode as well. Try please. I recorded video clip and tried it. It works after asking me if I want to play sound on quiet mode.
your review is helpful for others but there are cons which you have mentioned is not true
1.bluetooth works with any mobile phone i have tried with nokia6600,6681,6630.you should establish bluetooth from other phone if not working then establish connection from x700 .this is true that sometimes bluetooth doesnt work because some mobiles dont support security code verification which is necessary when establishing connection with x700
3.i have got sandisk microsd 64 mb card
5.video recording is good if shoot in ideal conditions
but you have forgotten to mention one cons:-
poor battery life
you cannot play video in quitemode but you can play audio in quite mode
yes you can see memory card with pc studio 3
but i would suggest you not to use bluetooth nor usb to transfer files.there is a method which supercharge your transfer from pc to mobile.
1.menu-setting-phone settings-usb settings-mass storage
2.connect usb data cable to pc.
3.now you can see a new drive in your my computer.
4.just copy files from pc to mobile
transfer time for 9.45 mb file=4-5 seconds .enjoy
I think this is X700‘s software problem that it cannot play in full screen mode. But anyway, you can remove borders (cinemascope) from mpeg format movie by using Flask Mpeg Encoder. This is freeware and can be downloaded from http://flaskmpeg.sourceforge.net . You can also convert DVDs to other video formats like DivX (avi mpeg4) by this software and thanks for your valuable comments on this site.
I am using this fone for about 2 weeks and i found it to be wonderful with hardly any disadvantage or shortcomings...
I have two queries which i would like any one to resolve:
1. My fone doesnt play AAC format... Can anyone help me in finding out the reason for that.
2. I want to know how to install java games on it...
Can I use microSD (1GB) as mamory stick and how can I see memory card with "Samsung PC Studio 3.0"?
Man!! This phone rocks. I'had bought this phone last week and just love it's rich features.though there r some con's too
1. bluetooth seems not to work with other handsets
2. typing a messege gives pain to your fingers
3. no memory card provided
4. not symbian
5. vedio recording not quite good
1. all in all in min. price
2. brilliant display
3. good sound
4. small and light in weight
5. good quality of body cover
close your eyes and go for this phone if you are low on budget and want all the features
can anyone tell me about converting widescreen cinemascope movies to fullscreen movies please i want to make fullscreen movies because samsung x700 dont have fullscreen playback
you can play mpeg4 audio and video files on your rocking x700 also known as mp4.
to convert mp4 audio
download easy cdda converter from http://www.poikosoft.com/
click audio file format converter
options -normalize 100%
to convert mp4 video
download imtoo video 3gp converter
click on mischenelous
add a video file
profile mp4 mpeg4 video
video size -176*144
bitrate -120 dont increase it because increasing will result in lag between frames and video wont be smooth
frame rate -auto
sample rate -8000
disable audio -false
here you can have high quality mp4 audio and video forget mp3 and 3gp.upgrade 4 from 3.
I think Motorola ROKR E1 has an edge over X700 in music sound quality but E1 also has some disadvantages like:
When playing mp3 from iTunes, it is very slow responding phone. It has no FM radio/EDGE. It supports 512MB microSD card and internal memory is only 11MB. It’s Camera is VGA (640 x 480). So keep this in mind before making any decision.
hey this x700 play mpeg4 files but you cannot get constant framerate .video doesnt play smoothly.because of this phone doesnt dont support 48000 sample rate which is default for mpeg4 files.but you can get high quality 3gp files by using imtoo 3gp converter .optimal setting is
1. video codec mpeg4
2.video size 176*144
3.bit rate 150 kbps
4.frame rate 15
5.bitrate tolerance 60
1.audio codec mpeg4 aac
2.bit rate 48kbps
3.sample rate 8000 or 22050 depends on source
5.disable audio fault
here you can enjoy mpeg4 quality videos
dont hesitate to buy this phone this is really awesome x700 rocks
Does this phone support mpeg4??...actually i m goin to buy a new phone. i had a choice between motorola rokr e1 and samsung x700...can u guys tell me which phone is better comparing each feature of these phones? the sound of mp3 wid ear phones and speaker etc etc.
I am using x700. I saw someone wrote that x700 doesnt support photos taken from 2mp or more camera. But when I sent a photo taken from w800i to this phone, it opened. But when I sent a photo from k750i it didnt open. Both were of same resolution also. Anyone knows why?
