for normal talk and normal usage of multimedia, battery charge lasts for 1 day. if you don't use multimedia, it may go upto 2 days or so. in India, the package comes with an extra battery and external battery charger and car charger so that you are always equipped with a full charged battery.
I've had mine since Oct 06 and found out last night the plastic had snapped in the middle of the phone. It now is permanantly bent.
can anyone please inform me about the battery? how long does it last ?
To MIKKUZ: still with the problem? from messages>settings>text messages, select profile settings, then find out a profile with 'default type - text', instead of 'e-mail' (or you can edit, if u want). save it and from 'current profile', select that profile-thats it. the problem solved.
has anyone had any success with pairing with a bluetooth gps receiver?
i can pair it but it will not let the java programs access it. programs like mgmaps and nav4all.
is it possible to use a bt gps receiver with java gps apps on this phone?
when you type with the t9 and the dictionary doesn't have the word you can 'add' words. my question is.. how do you edit the list? what if i put in a word that later i wanted to remove. is it possible?
i know with my k750 they have 'my words' which is where all the new t9 entries are stored which can be edited.
does the x820 have the same?
Does anyone has the extended battery for this phone? I see that on ebay and various UK sites that there's a 1000mAh battery for this phone. Does anyone use the extended battery or know if this phone can handle that much juice?

TO RAJESH: hey.. thanx so much for answering my inquiries about the phone.. it's really a big help for someone who's kinda technology-illiterate like me.. =) coolness!! thanx again!
The only thing good about this phone being slim, but the battry sucks!! it lasts hardly for a day, if u got atleast 3 or 4 long calls per day so dont bother n dont buy it & dont waste ur maney
Things which are wrong.
1) does not have an option to to change grid menu to list.
2)To send an sms it first asks you for number as i can remember them, phone book is thee steps away.
3)can change number from sim to phone but not otherway round.
4)Can not copy one mumber at a time from phone to sim.
5)over all poor software.
Its battery time is very low because the mobile is very slim, so the battery it has is slim too. That's why it doesn't work for a long time.
To Julia: I'm using x820 for the last 4 months. There is a document viewer, using which you can view(not edit)word, excel, pp slides and html, stored in the 'other files' section of the phone. also you can upload/download files using usb/bluetooth. a substitute for floppy disc (for office files). One problem is the fonts appear too small to be viewed-but you can zoom it. still, at readable size, only a few lines on screen.by zooming and scrolling you can manage it to a limit. don't think as easy as you view on laptop screen. also no slide show for ppt-just view. the phone great on design and display. no memory slot and music volume poor (esp, compared to SE phones). battery 1 day. try it.
hey guys.. for those of you who own an X820.. just want to ask if the document viewer really works? since I have a digicam and music player already, I just want to get a phone that has a document viewer.. hope u can help me on this.. thanx in advance!
to all consumers notice!the first battery charge must be at least all night long to 12 hours!for the start you should leave the battery charge and discharged FULL 3 TIMES!imean 3 full charge and untill the phone switch off!even if you start its never late.and time to time charge phone switched off!this is general and is for all kind of rechargable batteries!(laptops,notebooks,pda,mp3).my x 820 battery is 800ma li-po ,i follow all this rules and battery give me its 100% .heavy use and for sure 50 hours life!!!
I think this is a pretty poor designed phone for its generation. Battery life is poor: if you actually use the phone it it will hardly last a day. The screen goes completely blank if you don't use the phone; you will have to press a button to see if you have an sms or missed call. During charging it will light up your night time room; no way you can dim or turn off the screen then. Blue tooth performance is barely acceptable: uploading a 80k picture takes something like 2-3 minutes so uploading an mp3 is almost unimaginable. Sound quality during a call is also worse than the phones I used before. It seems that samsung almost comprimised everything else to archive the flatness of this phone. Don't buy it you will regret it as I do. I am re-activating my 4 year old siemens which weighted slightly more had 3 times better battery life so you don't need to charge it every day and also the audio quality was a lot better. Oh yeah and it was cheaper. Unbelievable how technology can actually worsen over time.
This is a nice phone overall but it's battery life is way below mediocre. its just very bad. I remember sometimes I had to charge this phone two times in a day. I recently sold it and now I am using a nokia 1100 whose battery lasts for more than a week!
Leave the phone to recharge a bit longer. Don't unplug it when it says it's done, leave it about 1h more. I've noticed mine lasts about 2x more. I had a sony ericsson that had the same behaviour.
