i love the look of this dark phone
i dont like old ugly grey or the horrible whites phones like fisher price lol
Infrared really is a waste of time, it good that they have not wasted there time or ours with it.
Nokia, Samsung & IrDA
I think that IrDA is still common and very useful. Bluetooth is definatelly the way to go, but infrared is still a great means of file-sharing, especially P2P.
Now, the argument was raised that Nokia, as "competitor", is issuing all phones with IrDA. Very true for most, but not all models, yet I hardly see the two companies clash.
I think that Nokia & Samsung are moving on completely separate levels in development and implementation of their mobiles.
Both have separate Markets, with the GSM/European Market belonging to Nokia, and Samsung the South-Mid Asia & Pacific Region.
I see the competition under these groups:
Nokia vs. Sony Ericsson vs. Motorola (mainly Europe/America/Pacific)
Samsung vs. LG (CYON) vs. BenQ-Siemens (mainly Korea/Taiwan/China)
SHARP vs. Toshiba vs. Sanyo (mainly Japan/Pacific)
So if you compare brands already, compare them as in these groups! Then we're talking.
tell me something very honestly "Kishore", will you care about Infrared if you have UBS? I dont use my Infrared even though I have it in my phone. Its a thing of past. Move on!!
i dont know why most of the samsung mobiles wont have infrared feature. while the compititor nokia will give with every set.
I'm sick of samsung, not all phones have bluetooth so why infrared is missing again from their phones? No more samsung for me!
yeah it look nice ! and a big screen with 240x320 i want it !! love :) the futur of the Z300 if the sound speacker is good :)
So bad.. Black again??
I wanna more bright color. but Samsung fone is always black..
Say what you want...
I've had many Camera Phones and the smaller the lenses, the more noise. The GX30, Z500 and S700 all produced nice pictures. The K750i and W800i are nice too, but nothing compared to the 903SH which has a 7-lense CCD sensor.
And all of these "Cameras" don't compare in quality to any digital camera with bigger and simply better optics.
We'll see what the future brings!
you people are ignorants, of course the number of pixels matter, have you compared a photo taken with a 1.3 vs. a 2 the latter looks more real
To Skater42: You're missing the point. I only addressed the person because he/she didn't know why Samsung would bother with 2mp camera when you can't differentiate it from vga camera. In addition, you cannot just judge on phone's size and say "oh...to small! must have a disapointing camera!" Although I haven't checked this phone's camera, there are phones in Korea that's about this size and produce awesome pictures. So yeah...
@ LG Hooker
Yeah, the 850Mhz frequency will replace the 800/900Mhz CDMA 1x. The whole debate the rural people spit is nonesense. WCDMA 850 will have nearly the same reach than the previous CDMA 1x, just 3x the speed.
I don't know whether they will get rid of the 2100Mhz, it might just run dual-mode like GSM 900/1800.
By the way:
HSDPA is backward-compatible with WCDMA, so this phone should be able to receive WCDMA services. Can't promise, but that's what the specs say.
My mistake the new 3G Telstra will use will be based on a 850mhz system. The current 3G in australia is 2100mhz
Telstra is also doing away with the current 2100mhz WCDMA 3G also, and is replacing it with the 1900mhz 3G which they are also doing in the states.
Samsung have realised that it camera on the D600 was o.k but now its upgraded its camera now offering auto-focus just hope now in its media file you can view the full picture on the screen an the same watching videos thats what let a few people down on the D600 well done Samsung an keep this function on every camera phone your produce please an Nokia will lose out to you
the issue is this: SIZE doesn't matter. CMOS and CCD sensors of THIS small size can be 4Mpx and still have the worst noise and distortions.
Even the Sharp 903, which is damn good, is having trouble with low-light conditions because of the relative small size of the sensor (I own a 903, its DAMN good quality).
Check how flat and small this lense is, compare the V3x (Motorola), which is very similar. It's not terrible and not good, but a 2 Mpx image just has too much noise and distortion, and missing contours.
Other than that I really think the Z560 is amazing, such a small handset featuring HSDPA is very impressive!
Well done Samsung!
