a class looking mobile from samsung but theres still one thing samsung as got to sort out is its software an functions on there mobiles,people will first buy there mobiles on looks then using the functions on samsung mobiles do not seem to match the ease of use of nokia mobiles,the g600 an soul my mates got really anger them when i use my black 8gb n95 as theres can not match it at all,they really got have got to improve this before i decide if this mobile lives up to is hike!
samsung does try hard to compete to get to the top, its just their models are always so ugly, if they thought of redesigning their phones with specs like this phone, i would definitly be insterested in carrying one.

still sabotaging Sony Ericsson? lolz. you're funny. look at nokia..too scared of the ... moreid want another nokia, or this phone, because basically companies like SE always build phones which arent as good as the top phones on the market.
cmon, the c905 is so LACKING in features. the old N95 has more features than the c905.
and lololol nokia gna be another motorola? i doubt it, they outsell most companies by treble

well nokia will announce their 8 mega pixel pretty soon as well, they all(sony ericsson, nokia etc) use samsung sensor for the camera. But too bad se c905 records only at qvga not vga. Just remember nokia just bought out symbian and they are trying to reimage the symbians product. Having a high mega pixel camera doesn't really mean anything if the os sucks.
Chani, 24 Jul 2008Don't call this a camphone unless it has Xenon flash? What are you spouting about. This IS a c... moreThat is why SE put put a 3led light under the xenon flash so you can use it on video
Not a bad looking phone but could be better and brighter.
It has a 3.5mm port for headphones? Why can't SE include this?
Good camera with nice features!
Wonder what the price is?? Will it work in the US??
Let's wait for the "official" review when camera is released!
Cool, on one of the photos you can clearly see it has a built in automatic lens cover! Vodafone (UK), please ship this in August!
this phone is actually one of the rare samsung phones that was badly designed.in my own opinion samsung phones looks great than nokia but i was disappointed w/ this one.i agree w/ some of you here who said that this is a nokia copycat.they procured the symbian OS and now they obviously copied the nokia design which is also terrible and boring.\
Samsung seems to be following the trend of nokia and now they're starting to release phones for the sake of variety and money?
Thank god its a slider! So it will never going to be in my list. Im a bar form factor kind of guy.
Better in official photoes, that in real ones!
Well, I think it is really better than N96 and C905 if the design and price will not be considered.
No tv out
No-Fanboy, 24 Jul 2008wtf.. biggest asset 8MP cam?? MY FOOT! Never call a phone 'Camera phone' unless it has XENON F... moreDon't call this a camphone unless it has Xenon flash? What are you spouting about. This IS a camphone. Can your digicams take great looking video in the dark? Nope, because they have a Xenon flash. This baby has dual power LED for a comprimise between video and photo shooting. So - sure sounds like a camphone to me.
Nice phone, camera will be better than the SE one simply because the lense is designed properely. MP don't matter if the rest of the camera ain't right. But a phone should not be judged by it camera alone... Remember that. Samsung and SE have been well ahead of other brands for a long time, but still haven't discovered a OS as good as apple. In an ideal world we would have apple OS, with their great features and multi touch, this 8MP snapper, SE battery life, and fix up the obvious design faults with apple, add a touch of samsung style and we have the perfect phone... Shame it will never happen.
