- The phone looks okay
- Battery is good (I charge it once a week for about 2 hours talk and other stuffs (games, etc.)
- Bluetooth and IRDa are very helpful
- Keyboard is bad, it is hard to type sms. Much better to use the old Xenium 9@9++
- Camera is not good
- Phonebook only allows one field of name (no last name and first name fields)and limited to 12 characters
This phone is good for those who does not like to charge their phone every 2 days and looks for the phone to call only

Thanks & Regards
i just buy this phone this month.for the first charge the battery its very good and the signal too.congratulation to philiphhs for this phone
hi guys got the 9@9d, must say first charge got 5days use with very little calls and 3days outstation so was just on but not used. then only two or three days use per charge-talk time approx 5hours.
so its better than your average mobile--but NO WAY near the claimed time-and even standby 2 days the battery bar dropped one, so i think a standby of one month is def not possible.one dayyy
The phone is really great - but the display is really flickering - not just at low battery, everytime except when plugged.
But anyway, the standby time is absolutely overwhelming
Do anyone knows something about about the problems, this phone has? (I heard something about flipping screen when batery is low)
I own this phone for three weeks. I can only say this: Folks, this phone is the best phone ever made. Excellent reception quality (in some shadow areas where the others hasn't got network at all, this phone simply rocks.) I am serious, really. Camera's quality is average. Battery is amazing. it lasts from 10 to 15 days if you appreciate this phone as phone and not like some toy.
maybe nokia and motorola manufacturers can learn something with philips battery manufacturers...
outstanding stand by... almost a month.. without charging..!! philips makes best battery
I totally agree with Mike.
Not to mention that it's the chipest basic phone with a BLUETOOTH!
Where else have you seen a bluetooth phone for $130??????
STOP THE B.S. PLEASE!!!!
Everyone knows very well that 800 MAH batterry never last 200hr-300hr advertised B.S. standby!! Only two days -that's the most! And to me two days is perfect enough!!!
Now that we have 1100 mah from Philips (which is not very significant stronger than 800 mah) very low power consuption phone, we can expect 7 days of standby. This is an outstanding result, more than enough!!!!!
SO STOP BITCING HERE
850 hr of stanby is not possible even with xenium low power cinsuption ( the batteryy is only 1100 mah!!! not 1600 mah like on panasonic's SA and MX series!!!).
FELIX: I can't write in Romanian because the guys from Arena said NO. The phone is OK and I use it with a Cosmote contract (I work for Cosmote). Maybe if I put a Vodafone or Orange SIM the S-By will be better because they have a better network coverage. I'm thinking of putting in my Vodafone SIM, but this means that I have to charge my SE W800 once a day and I need the Cosmote because it is my work number. In my vacation (hope it will come soon) I'll put the Voda into the 9@9d and I'll post another comment.
Have a nice day all of u!!!
I just bought this phone yesterday. anybody wants to use a phone just for talking I definitly recommend Philips. Long battery life never leaves you without a battery dead. Philips has basic needs that a person needs from a phone.I have to say that the camera is suck.But I didnot buy this phone for its camera. I bought it for its long battery life. I would use the camera if I needed. Otherwise camera is suck. Bluetooth function is very usable.Whoever got this phone please enjoy the phone.
its the best phone i charged it two weeks ago and it stll has full battery
EVERYBODY has to know that ANY phone (including those with LiIon battery) has to pass the first 3 cycles of full discharge-charge, to reach maximum of the battery!
Also, ANY device connected or started on the phone get more power from the battery, and I believe the top is like that:
Even a simple cable (either hands free or PC connect) get power from the battery, not to say about various conditions about network coverage!!!
BTW, that guy from Romania, which said that he has a 7 days stand-by and 5 hours talk time with Bluetooth activated, should come back after a full recharge and nothing else started or connected to the phone, only talk, to say how long the stand by and talk time in those conditions! Other ways, I believe that 5 hours of talk time is VERY GOOD in practice, and if those where via Bluetooth headset, then I have to say is EXTRAORDINARY GOOD, and I think without BT will be around 7-8 hours talk!
Chiar asi fi curios sa ne mai impartasesti ceva experiente cu acest telefon!
