i had my unstable 960 replaced with this (a virtual downgrade) because i was promised better performance. for while i thought it did perform better: until i noticed that some of the tracks i was able to play using my 960 ( i simply transferred them from the microsd to the minisd being used on the 768)
wasn't possible on my 768!!! i asked for advice about this and all the folks at philips can say is it's a bit rate issue, a line i don't buy for one bit. a software upgrade isn't available either. no wonder philips has lagged behind the so called major players.
i bought this phone last year, and within 2 days it was sent back to the service centre. within a month it had to be fixed there thrice.
the mp3 player is very unstable.. sometimes the tracks keep skipping without any sound is being played. this goes on forever until the phone hangs.
like the other posts have stated, the bluetooth function is rather useless too.
text messaging takes a long time since the key pads are slow and un-userfriendly.. it lags too.
battery life... well lets just say it needs to be charged daily.
yes, its affordable and has many functions. thats probably the only good thing about this phone. but did i mention that all those functions don't really work out well? good luck to all new buyers.
Hi, Im from Bangladesh, and I bought this set 2 weeks ago.....this set is quite fantastic, but there are some probs like the sound is not that good because there aint any equalizer with the phones default player and also the video sucks and bluetooth is limited. But other than that, excellent display, and very slick and attractive look. Someone please tell me how to connect the phone through the mobile phone software cause it cant detect my phone.
plz inform me how to use this phone as a gprs modem so i can browse internet in computer using this phone. I see the the internet and mms options is not visible in the given pc software suite. Pls help.
** video can be played full screen with one line at bottom and another up showing time and play-pause options.
** sound from phone speaker is not so loud and bass is low. but in earphone it sounds clear and good.
This phone is not very good
Pros : Good Quality Camera, Very Good quality bright Display, 512mb Memory Card Support. Thats it!!
Cons : Poor Quality sound & also very low. No Background play, no full screen video, and philips lies that it can play 352X288 video at 30fps. I tried to shoot a video and it was only 15fps and of very poor quality, Bluetooth is very slow and can not transfer files of over 350kb. and the worst part is its slow interface....its really annoying, even keypad response is very very bad.
I wudn't recommend this phone!!
I m looking to buy this phone........plz tell me about the sound quality of the loudspeaker at playing Mp3 (comparing to recent music phones and the loudness).....also is it true that mp3 can not be played in background mode??
u can use opera mini on this mobile phone. just install it and from option menu, go to http profile. then set the correct settings of your service operators.
i talked to philips on different aspects of this mobile phone. they has not developed any firmware update still. the bluetooth transfer size and speed is limited as its chip is version 1.2.
I tried many java games and application on this phone but few of them worked. Anyway if you find any good stuff or any question then let me know.
can anybody say how can i update my firmware and how can i update my bluetooth option for transfering more data at a time..
hi,icant use opera mini in this mobile.it istall in mob,but doesnt work.i can use its
browsing software,but i wanna use opera
or something like tht java application.pls inform me.
Hi, I’m a new user of this model of Philips. It has large color screen which shows good quality pictures. It can also play 3GP type videos. I just converted some of my favorite videos and play them nicely on this mobile. To install java program is also very easy. Just add the file in phone memory (via the given software) into its video folder. In option menu you can later install them. Other good features of this phone are its good quality mp3 player, unlimited video recording, handy flash light, Bluetooth, 30 frame per second video in webcam mood, pen drive like access, good battery charge etc. On the drawback side, this phone has limited Bluetooth function (mean you share files up to 350kb), cannot install java program those have much file size, limited voice recording time, no internet resources, mini sd card up to only 512mb etc. I heard the Bluetooth can be unlocked by the professional technician, though I have not tried. There are only three themes in the phone, don’t know whatever I can add any further. Anyway, this phone is beautiful and featured with many tools. I just hope I can find any forum on this phone and online resources to enhance my experience.
hi guys. does anyone know where i can find themes for the 768 on the net? as you can see, the choices are pretty limited. thanks!
After a lackluster stint with my old, bug filled 960, i opted (at a local philips guy's suggestion no less) a 768 instead. less lag, brighter color and a better build quality. too early to tell how the cosmetic parts will last (the 960's quality build is so lousy) - james
Is the Video is limited or unlimited ? Plaease inform me as soon as posabile.
Philips is climbing up the ladder. This phone is nice, good camera, mp3, features. Overall is good at cheapest price.
I wann know about 768 camera,i am looking zoom option on this speciton but i cant find out that. please tell me it has zoom option?
please can any one tell me why this phone hangs? when i play a mp4 file, the memory card gets hot like lava.then it hangs. i think philips 768 is not stable. like sony ericsson most.
no radio, when play video it hangs, bluetooth and IrDA can't sent receive files up 2 350kb, what else its horrible?
but i bought this phone in 8,500 tk or 120$
does anybody know how to transfer file above 400kb via bluetooth in this phone?
this phone is great!!
Worst battery I ever had. After 2 month battery last at most 1.5 days (in standby).
