i use this phone a lot for messaging and the battery easily lasts me 3 days. to increase battery life, screen brightness can be reduced and keyboard light can be set set to be used only between certain times. had D600 before which had an awful battery life (I'm talking half a day). x820 screen is amazing and menu comes in "black" and "white" and is very modern - not the usual samsung menu.
Here are the things I don't like about the phone. (had it for 2 days)
1. Battery Life is SHORT!!! (you need a charger @ home/car/office)
2. All Contacts are listed in phonebook insted of just primary name.
3. Cannot assign a funciton to the Soft-Keys
4. Video record time is short!
5. You can't creat shortcuts for a lot of items.
6. No Memory Slot
Sometimes i think it's too thin! If the entire phone was as thick as the camera end, it would still be sexy and hot and improved all the above issues.
Price of the X820 already dropped down to around US$250(depending on the store mark up).......almost half what it cost a couple of months ago when it first came on the market!
Hi may I ask if the screen resolution is good? Cus its 220-176 compared to other phones with 320-240 resolution.Some one pls reply, thks.
This model will come out to Tmobile USA under Samsung SGH-T619. Exactly the same but different color (gray instead of black). Tmobile will also come out with another slimmer slider much like the D820 they currently have out right now. I have no exact time when Tmobile will release these phones. But im hoping sometime this fall. I really wanna get my hands on it.
thanks for your quick reply - i'm really considering to buy this phone - or the upcoming D830.... ;-)
Sabri - I put it in the front pocket and dont have any worries about it breaking. Just dont lean on anything to make sure. It's easy to forget you even have it as its so light and unobtrusive.
you can text with the mp3 on. Just no bluetooth or tv out with the mp3 on. its in the manual
again - do you put this phone into the pocket of your pants? don't you be afraid that the phone might break?
i checked the slashphone site and saw the other colors for this unit.
i love............the blue one. but how will i get one? i don't think they are now selling those others colors here in middle east, especially bahrain.
i wanted to buy, please help.
does anyone know all the keywords for vivid text more (my messages, settings, sms, 3d vivd text on) - love brings up a heart, bored - zzz's, home, a house, etc. :)
I bought the x820 a few days now and I can honestly say that it’s perfect in every way! It makes my old phone (Motorola v3) look like yesterdays news….And it is!
Comparing the size, features, and refreshing new trendy style of x820; other slim mobile phones at this moment, cannot compete!
only set backs are that it does not accept a memory card, so your stuck with a 80mb phone and its fragile so you must look after it carefully!
plzzz could anybody tell me how 2 download games from the pc ??? the samsung pc studio cant do it...anybody plzzzz
In Korea it comes in 3 different colors.
Hope they make a pink one as well for US market. Cheers!!
i have a question? does anybody know if the t-mobile version will have a memory slot...im debating if i should get the t809 or wait for this one...i really liked that the t809 has a memory slot...
I got this yesterday and have spent the better part of the last 12 hours messing around. The build quality is good, the screen is very good - I had a d500, d600 and s500i and this is somewhere in the middle of the d500 and d600. Sharp and clear, better than the d500 even though they have the same resolution (probably due to the reworked UI), and not quite as nice as 240x320. Texting is a breeze, my only concern is the internal antenna - the signal seems to jump around a bit - however, call quality is good. I left myself a vmail on a different line with 1 bar's worth of reception and the message was crystal clear. Strange, but no complaints. I llive in a metro area, so availablility of the 1900 signal for Cingular is pretty solid.
My only issue is that 1 day after I get it, tmobile comes out with a quadband version. If there is any justice in the world, they will cripple it (like the t809 versioning of the D820) and I won't feel as bad about buying the x820.
Otherwise - its great and ridiculously slim and solid-feeling. Some tips for battery life - turn down the screen brightness to 3 and shut off bluetooth when you dont use it. I did the same with my D600 and easily got another day of use out of it without having to charge it.
Haha...one note - my girlfriend and her friends saw it and started cooing and asking me if they made it in pink. Samsung - listen up - MAKE THIS IN PINK too and I guarantee that it will be a huge seller.
There are reports that T-mobile will have it soon in US, got FCC approval in July. But it says the US version T519 will be quadband.
hello, this phone is so adorable!!!actually i had the intention to buy it - but now i heard that this phone could break if you put it in the pockets of your pants...
do you think this phone will break if you put in the pocket of your trousers????
thank you for your comments ;-) bye bye
Hi every one who is worry about battery, when u will buy new mobile the battery need conditioning in order to change chemical enerny into electrical energy, the conditing method is to charge it for at least 12 to 16 hours for first time and use it till is goes tottaly emty, now only charge it compelet and use it upto compelet discharge, three or four charge and discharge cycle will take the battery to its maximum, thereafter you can note the battery timing which will be batter that you expect.
