Currently, the phone sells at P10400. At Wellcom you'll need a VIP card for that price, But there are stores, like mp3express, which sell them already for P10400 without membership I think.
Question: Is it possible to install and store Java games in other folders, not just in DRM?
Anyway, if anyone is wondering how to install java games, you can do it in 2 ways:
Using the software provided from the PC or directly from the memory card/memory of the phone. The 2nd method might be more convenient: Just save the .jar file in any of the folders (For example, the Received folder) and run it using the File Manager.
You'll see the "Install" option when you click the .jar file.
The phone does play mp4 files!
I have tried it, and I think that's one of its features asus is promoting. You can watch a whole movie in mp4 on that phone, provided that you have enough memory on your card. The sound quality for videos is also very good: still loud and clear as ever.
Hope that you can have you cellphone return just like new, and I hope the asus tech people would take some notes on our mini opinions here. hehe
To xcel, I havent tried mpeg 4 yet, but I think the phone only plays video in 3gp format. But thats not a problem, you can just convert mpeg4 video to 3gp using converter software, try search acala videoconverter on net, its free and I'e already used it.
I thinks he's one of the people in charge of the online customer care service of asus, I have also read his name before in some other forum. I haven't tried the lyrics function yet, and I guess I'll have to wait a while for that, because tomorrow I'll bring my unit to wellcom for repair. They said that the whole process of sending it to asus and back etc. will take about 2-3 weeks. badtrip.. hehe.. So, Kenny, this means that your Flash is ok and maybe my unit is just one of defective ones? Another thing, the 6 key is not responding as well as the other keys now after only a few days of usage. In sending SMS messages, for example, it's only useable when pressing a little harder, which is very annoying. But, of course, if everything I mentioned could be fixed I'll be happy again.. ;p I hope someone from asus reads our messages here...
Why is it that every time i try to download my sms to my pc this message appears "failed to download the short message item 65535 in the handset memory"? Is it the hardware or the software? anyone out there who experiences the same problem as mine?
does v80 have a mpeg4 player?? can it play videos??? just want to know the technical specs??
Who is this BiBi Wang Yehrwin?
By the way, have you tried display the lyrics of song which is supposed to be in LRC format. I have tried putting an mp3 and lrc file in the same folder, same filename. But the player doesnt display the lyrics like I expected.
Good luck with the flash discrepancy.
Btw, another nice function is that you can record your favourite shows or music from the radio. And you can take screenshots of a movie during viewing.
Right, Treble mode, in my opinion, gives out the loudest output using the phone speakers. However, when plugging the phone into bigger speakers I prefer Rock mode.
BiBi Wang from Asus finally replied and he told me to send pictures that were taken in the dark using the flash. I do hope they fix this. And I also pointed out that it would be better to use the 0 key as space, instead of the joystick. Maybe they'll update that in the next firmware if enough of us address that query at their website. I also suggested to add more alphanumerical characters such as
β © ® ™ Ä Ö Ü ä ö ü
Regarding the sleep mode, I dont know either if its possible to display the clock.
As for the sounds: the sound is just fine, its loud and clear plus you can adjust the equalizer as to customize what frequency variation you prefer.
what about itz sound quality?? give me some info bout itz sound. Text me at #09182286702
Yup, i think so,too. And thanks for the input. The V80 is really a great phone for the buck. I especially like the camera, with its 2mp resolution, it eliminates the use of a scanner by just taking a picture of the document. If only the flash could be adjusted. For me that's the only major concern that I have. To be honest, the rubber thing that is missing doesn't bother me that much, somehow i find it even easier to navigate the joystick and it doesn't look that bad anyway. But still it would be nice if asus could replace that,too. ;p
By the way, another question, is it possible at sleep mode that the time is still visible without having to click any key?
Regarding you issues with v80, here are my opinions:
1st: about the flash thing, i have tried using the flash at dark but i havent check the picture if only the lower part was lightened, check that one tonight.
2nd: Yep, I also experienced the rubber peeled off. And it also happend around the first couple of days after I brought it, I just put mightybond on it and stick just fine. Sorry about you lost your rubber stuffing in joysticking.
3rd: Yep, I also often got the two consecutive letter like the "jk" thing when it was "i" that I really wanted to spell out.
4th: I used the joystick to make a space while texting but I still have to resort to 0 key if I want to explicitly insert a space between two character. It still open up the special character menu where I still have to select space from there, kinda tiring at times.
Aside from those issues, v80 is also the perfect non 3g phone for me.
Another thing, I haven't fully explored the capabilities of the phone yet, but is it possible to install java games other than in DRM? If yes, how? thanks thanks!
New Asus V80 (black, version 4.11) user here and I'm very pleased. Still, I do have a few issues with the phone that I have already pointed out at the support website of asus. I suggest that everyone should address their queries about this phone at their website >> http://support.asus.com/ In this way we could get their attention in getting the bugs fixed in the next firmware version. Here are the points that I want to fix, just want to see if there are other units like this or if it's just my bad luck:
The flash does not cover the whole area. It is out of focus for my unit, meaning that when taking a picture in the dark using the flash, the upper portion (in landscape mode) is not lit at all. Hence, the outcome is a picture where only 2/3 of the area (lower portion) is visible. The rest of the area (upper portion) is very dark to almost black. But If the flash could just be adjusted a little more focusing on the top, then the light would cover the whole picture area. I have tried this both in normal and night mode and the results were almost the same. Is this a common problem for the V80?
The rubber material on top of my joystick peeled off after 1 day and I lost it somewhere. I hope this can be replaced.
Double typing at sending SMS messages is still a frequent issue for my model. (especially if you want to type "l", sometimes it comes out at as "jk")
0 key, instead the joystick, for space when typing SMS messages.. please.. hehe
Still, overall I think that this phone has very great features at a very reasonable price.
Can anybody here help me with one problem?
My AsusV80 (updated), does not seem to "identify" the numbers that I have already stored in the sim card or in the phone...
