The phone itself looks great. It's the ideal phone from the outside.
I really like how fast all the applications run and stuff, but there are a couple things that most people should know before buying one.
First of all, when you are on the phone just chit-chatting. You have to be in a really quite place, otherwise, the person on the other side talking to you will basically be able to hear every little thing you do. Even if it's a small click sound from you mouse, or a car passing your house. Everything will be heard to the other person.
Second of all, I could not get the picture text messeging to work at all. I use T-mobile in the States, but I could not get it to work. This might just be my problem, so I will not complain about it that much. Just be careful.
If you care about any of the above. Then, this is the best phone. Really, I love it so much...
It's the best device I have ever had.
I don't know why some say that the battery lasts short - in my case it lasts 4 days of normal usage. This device along with WM6.1 is something that other should look and envy in others. It has beautiful,shiny cover, no driver errors, many cool functions.
Just buy and forget what others say...
The battery life is indeed poor, I have to charge this phone every night. However I'm a heavy user and found that I had the same problem with my last three mobiles(SE K850i, Nokia E65 & Nokia 6120 Classic. I have found this phone very good for me. Size, touch screen and connectivity has been excellent. E-mails are delivered, browsing is quick, texting a breeze and calling no problem. As a comunications device, I'm very happy with it. As a multimedia device its lacking. video/music playback is average & photos are sub-standard, but I've always used an ipod & a camera for those tasks as mobile phones have never cut it (so far). So it's horses for courses. As a communications device its cheap and very much useful.
i cant believe that there are people out there still buying or even using this phone? whats wrong with you all???
i observe if i connect the earphone, the sound is not good. any possible enhancement regarding how to adjust the sound.
quite disappointing, not as long-lasting as XDA II or O2 mini.i bought one last Apr2007; after a month of usage, the LCD looked funny. when I brought to the service center, they said that LCD got "oil patch". they changed the LCD. After several wks, the "oil patch" showed up again. I didn't bring back to serv cntr since this phenomenon is hard to show to the serv guys, only when the phone heats-up when you use phone or MP3 for sev. hrs. Now, after a yr, I experienced no audio on incoming call. When I brought to service center, they say the motherboard gave away. since I don't want to spend a few more dollars for the new motherboard, I gave up and bought a new pda/phone - diff brand!

I just bought this phone last week. I realized battery life is horrible. I charge the phone to 100% and i leave the phone at standby mode (no wireless network on) and no making any calling. Yet, at the end of day, the battery becomes 10%. Can it be a faulty battery that i am having because the specification mentioned stand by mode will last 150 hours.
Should have wait for apple 3G iphone. Haiz...
Hi there , I'm currently having a 02 atom life . well I would say it a ok phone as I can storage many personal details in it . just find that this phone do not come with chinese programme . Therefore I hope someones can assist me on this area as I really don know where to get it . do mail me if whom ever know . email@example.com
can anyone tell me how to update windows using wm6. i cudnt update as there was msg "connection to update server was not available. Check ur data connections settings and ensure the device date and time are correct". i have set all the things and using my data plan but still cannot.
O2 can seriously think and solve following problems;
1. Battery timing
2. Improvement in Camera quality
3. Sometimes Hanging issues
4. 64MB RAM consumption minimum
Please solve these issues immediately because once you spend a lot of money users can get better results.
It is really enjoy to work with WM6 OS!
I have used a lot of phones and so far among my best phones is this O2 atom life. Im afraid people will definitely say its useless or it hangs always, it may be true depending where you got your unit. But for me it works pretty fine it is full of features and not to mention the amazing freeware you can download online to enhance it. I guess its a matter of knowing how to use the device before we can judge its capabilities. Windows based devices are actually more challenging rather than the symbian types( which mostly 7 year olds can operate no offense ). I guess the best thing to do is read the manual 1st before talking or posting a bad comment about the phone.
I own this O2 Atom Life since Dec 2007.I live in Singapore and got for S$1098. I have seen most of the commenting on the poor performance of the battery and hanging. If u dont know to use this phone properly... it will suck. The poor batter performance is due to the application running in background ( U might not have closed), whether the blue tooth or wiFi is on. Try to check whether all ur applications are properly closed. This enhance the batter performance.. U cannot compare this with Nokia PDA as it has the best processor.
Its now running on WM6. Good applications like Mobile office, Windows messenger, FM, etc.
My last suggestion is, if don't know how to use the PDA with WM6 or u r looking only for a phone rather than an organizer, better dont go for this.
As of my experience, its a good companion if used properly.
battery suck! RAM Low! Symbian OS user friendly than WM OS! Nokia E51vs XDA Atom Life. Nokia E51 win!
I am from Spore.I just want to know,if there is any differences between atom life and the atom life limited edition?Are both MW6? Thank you.
