I am still going for this model i like it very much it has Bluetooth Mp3 Nice looking stylish and cool i like it very much no problem if there is no FM i will buy 5500 for that so i will also have 2 mobiles thanx for your information about the mobile i live in Dhaka i am Pakistani after 5 months going back to Islamabad forever and will study in Lawrence College Gora Ghalli so whats your Id lets become friends
I have a few questions about this phone before I buy.. i used to use a razr and lost that, now im using an LG CU500 which is just ok... here are the gripes and let me know if these are present on the X820 please:
Ringer ALWAYS fades in.. its not at full volume for half the rings and then i miss calls.
Voice on other end fades in when there is a silence... you miss the first word (also when its ringing on the other end each ring fades in)
Speakerphone? is it loud? handsfree?
Speaker.. is it loud? the CU500 is loud when calling a landline, but other cells are muted a lot more.
SMS: you cant go from ABC123T9 all with just hiting one button... to go to T9 or back to ABC mode, you need to go through a small menu which I hate doing, it really slows things down.
On the same line: does the T9 show the possible words at the bottom of the screen like in the RAZR and you can quickly scroll to what you want.. or can you only tap th * to flip to the next word? also.. with the Razr i could press 8 and the scroll to the "v" letter.. then the phone would make sure the word started with V.. with the CU500 i can choose the letter i want to start, but at the next button press it forgets this and goes back to using T U and V instead to start.
Does the name AND number show in the phonebook? what about when someone calls? name/picture and number? or just name and picture (if set).
static-y call quality? present on the cu500
poor reception? not too great on the cu500.. (and i have it forced to 2g mode).. also if i move from non-service area to a service area... it takes forever to register!
those are my main gripes with the CU500 ... if they are not present on the sammy id be very very please and would get one this week.
camera quality and memory arent too concerning.. id just upload them to my PC if i needed to clear room.
How is the bluetooth? easy to transfer files?
Does it sync with outlook calendar?
Thanks to anyone that can help
The battery is the only problem. I have to charge it twice a day. but everything else is just amazing. This is my first Samsung phone and i think i am becoming more loyal to Samsung phones.
you'll be sorry if you go in for this model.someone said it's good for cold countries. it will keep you warm while you have a romantic chat with your girl friend.
what is it with mobile phone makers. they make a phone where the obvious feature would be to have expandable memory. But no lets make the sales of a few thousand units then we will fool people into buying the next extactly same model but with expandable memory. Bollocks!!!! my advice dont rush out and buy the first editions wait a couple of months for the next one. you know they will bring a new version of it out anyway. So save yourself the bother dudes!!!
Now that its winter I guess this phone will keep you warm, if you have alot of friends. I guess I never thought about the fact that thin phones have the same amount of heat as normal ones but less area to distribute that heat. Samsung (and the likes of motorola etc.) should seriously consider going into building radiators using mobile phone technologies at this rate. I mean imagine this, a cold winters day, yourlistening to your MP3's and playing a game on the bus, Buts its freezing cold. ah ha lets switch the radiator on my phone... ahhhh thats better. ( sorry about the sarcasm)
it's true, this phone gets hot like a hot pan in the extended conversation one can cook an omlette over the ear piece area. it also gives me terrible headache. i just wanna get rid of this stupid mobile and have decided not to ever venture to go in for thin models. not only this model any thin models have the same problem. i own an VK 2000 bought from Thailand and has the same problem. i feel a raditor has to be installed on these mobiles. thin phones pose excellent cosmetic looks for fashion goers but they are not really pratical. people who are looking to buy slim models should think it over again.
this phone is good ,nice looking phone .camera 2 megapixels,but no flash,no card slot.
hey....has anyone noticed that this model gets hot near the ear piece and the screen and gives sort of a pain in the head and neck and will stay for sometime. i haven't faced this problem in my Nokias - 6100 and 6310i.
i use my samsung for my evening out. i feel the thinness is the only cosmetic value for this model. by the way what's the SAR value??
the re-set code for Samsung models is 8 times 0.(00000000) try it and thank me.
Nice one but few probs. The keypad light is not working anymore. The camera is brilliant but the lens got ewasily scrached and is too exposed thus can be broken. There is no expandable memory and Radio.
x820 is a good fone but the ring tones and the message tones are low in volume,i can't hardly hear it specially in public places.Is there some way to increase the volume?
What are the reset codes for this phone? Please I need the reset codes. Thank you.
ye its probarbly low sond coz its so thin, thas common sens! U no u cant fit in the world in something as neat as that!
hi i want samsung X820 to be introduced with external memory slot where it can be upgraded upto 1/2GB. I feel here only the set is laging behind. I am impresed with ur good features please send me mail can u do any upgradation in this set or not. I am planning to purchase this set.
Got this one. Design surely appreciated!! Must have a memory card plus the battery life is not good (the only thing I look for in handsets). The phone is fragile and a very low sound. I cant hear it when outside.
i like the phone... i think its pretty neat... small and all... im having one problem though... i cant seem to download videoclips of my computer to this phone... any suggestions how? does it support mp4 only?
I like this phone for its design.
But is it just me or does the X820's speaker simply SUCKS?? the sound it provides is so soft its barely enough for the ringtone. i have the volume all the way up to 7, and it's as loud as a 4 on the Moto SLVR. you can imagine how embarass I was when my girlfriend's SLVR's speaker drowns my brand new X820's teenie weenie noise.
is there something im missing?? please help. i can't hear the ringtones at all when im out in the open, or even in a room with a medium number of people. and the alarm isnt enough either. i dont think it'll be able to wake me up. this phone's sound can't be worse than my old Nokia 6100's sound... can it...??? any opinions will be appreciated. looks like my phone came from Europe somewhere cause it booted up in French. Also, should there have been a USB provided? cause mine didn't have one... :(
i am planing to buy this set,but but the problem is that after reading the opinion i am bit confuse so who so ever using this cell please help me weather i would go for it or not so should i go for another option available in the market at same price ..
