Philips 855 is the "best" of Philips 2004 models. But it seems to have numerous problems.. Philips make a control before sale products ?! :-)
Well, the phone is always announced (with European language like French) in France for the beginning of September.
this phone looks great and all but i've had to return it for exchange twice in 10 days. major problems with the backlight and the screen would freeze for no apparent reason. when you buy this phone, the battery life would be the LEAST of your concern. reception is also quite bad. overall, the phone doesn't function properly but the price is quite cheap for a camera phone - only $200 USD in hong kong
you can download an english manual from philips : http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/c/ct8558_awusa0p2/ct8558_awusa0p2_dfu_eng.pdf
as far as philips posted it should be possible to change it english. where did you buy it? ebay?
can anyone tell me how to use the Fotocall feature in Philips 855? The manual is all in Chinese. Thanks
does this phone have English? I just bought it but the manual seems to be all Chinese?????
I would like to say this phone is below my expectation.... i used for 2 weeks.. i sold it.... the OS is so slow.... my goodness..... i had to sell it.... it was nice at first... but after using it... it sux
I have been reading da reviews from taiwan and hk. people were saying that the phone has poor reception..... did any 855 users experience this problem?
I want buy this Philips 855 which is the "best" Philips for 2004. We know, Philips don't make "high-end" phone.
But I'm waiting for a model WCDMA/UTMS in the next Cebit (march 2005). Big hopes...
Philips 855 will be release in the beginning of September in France (with French language and other European language, then I think the date of release for Germany or England is the same)
when will this phone be released in the uk, if ever? ive been waiting for it for ages.
it's nice phone. good looking and simple phone. but it will be better if theres bluetooth.
According to some post's the 855 is already on the market. I am trying to buy it for two weeks now but nobody has it. At least in germany. It would be cool if you could tell me where you bought it.
I can't believe you guys get so irate about a mobile phone!!! I like the Phillips 855 and I'm going to buy it, I don't really care about all the technical crap, it's not like I'm going to impress my date with the details about my phone!!!
To thos who say batt sucks: If you happen tot know anything about battery techniques, you should know that the maximum capacity is reached after several loads i.e after a couple of days/ weeks. So saying after four days that'it sucks'is is a bit premature. So you sold it too quickly. Read manuals people and ge informed better before you buy. Philips is know for its long battery life life in cell phones. My 530 stands out 4/5 days, using it 15 min call very day and use some other items!!
I'm using phillip 855 for 4 days and now bye-bye, just sold. this is the bad product from phillips. battery 1& 1/2 day. now i'm using the old one xenium9@9++. VERY VERY disapointed
INFORMATION FOR ALL USER OF PHILIPS 855:the battery is a bit suck of this model.but you can use one menu which call AUTONOMY PROFILES.you can go to setting --> profiles --> autonomy.use it,then you will prove that the battery last for almost 4 days,even if you use it for write message very often.really!but when you use this menu,the inside LCD will just bright a half and the keypad light is nit active.but this menu very usefull to people who use to write message very often.prove it!
can any one tell me how long the battery life for this philips 855 if we talk continuously? Thanks
Somebody wrote; the battery of this model sucks. I have one, and like all other Philips models has it a good battery life. Standby time is 4/5 days and isn't bad it all for such a phone like this.
