based on my previous experience with xeniums, it doesn't really last the claimed 30 day time frame. it depends on a lot of factors like signal strength, type of sim and how it is used. i too am looking forward to having them here in the philippines. the brand has taken a lot of bad rap (philips itself is not entirely blameless) so it would be interesting to see how the new owners of the philips brand will push their product to the next level.
cris, 10 Apr 2008 is this available in the philippines? wow!! 1 month standby time.any users in this forum hav... morephilips cellphones is already available in the Philippines. you can purchase it in mall based cellphone stores. nice phone actually
Anonymous, 22 May 2008some people expecting a battery life that would extend up to 1 month it is true if you will no... morexenium line phones normally last around 1 week to 1 1/2 week normal use. heavy usage would be 3 to 4 days. it is still better than other phones.
I'm in Texas, USA with ATT/Cingular.
Bought from yesasia.com for US$220. Good phone overall. Unfortunately, I have the HK version, so switching text input modes often means switching through the Chinese ones as well.
Received the phone on Thursday AM, and was down to one bar (seems to be four) on Sunday PM. To me, this means my typical use is something like 5 days on maybe 2 hours of talk time. Of course, in the first week of a new phone, there is a lot of playing around with the functionality. Seems to have a similar battery life to my old Nokia 3100 with a new battery, but the Nokia only claimed a 6h battery life.
some people expecting a battery life that would extend up to 1 month it is true if you will not use it meaning standby ok but upon your regular use it will last for about 3 -4 days ok
why cant philips get their phones to india.it would be nice to have this phone here.
I need help.....when I press the mute button, the phone automatically gets into vibration mode without ringing..I want the phone to be totally silent, no ringing and no vibration...how do I do that?
is this available in the philippines?
wow!! 1 month standby time.any users in this forum having
exactly 1 month standby time with this unit?
I have the exact same problem with mine 9@9u as the previous writer......the battery is a 1050Mah and it only lasts for 3 days......faulty battery or faulty phone???
The reason why I bought this phone is because of the promise of the long lasting battery. Unfortunately I'm having issues exactly with the battery, it is only lasting for 3 days. I'm sure I received a defective phone so I have contacted the dealer about this issue. If wasn't because of that, I would say buy this phone. If you are looking for a phone to make videos, do not purchase this one. pictures are okay. Love the feeling of the phone and it would be perfect for what I use a cell phone ... only if my battery lasted the promised 740 hours in standby.
with reference, 9@9u has 512Mb Flash ROM and 256Mb RAM for it's O.S. but only 25MB available for users' data.
mind MB & Mb, also the O.S. memory & storage memory are different
the max video quality is as PAL VCD or CIF
besides, EDGE has been mentioned in the official materials such as this leaflet:
though it doesn't mean that the phone really support it! ^+++^
Whoa, I wouldn't mind having this baby!! I hope it comes out in the UK, looks SIIIIIICCKK!!!!!
Ok, setting some things straight.
From the official Philips PDF sheet:
Video Recording = max 352x288 @ 15 fps ONLY
Video Playback = 352x288 @30 fps.
Combression formats = MPEG4, H.263
User Memory = 25mb
Internal Memory = 512 mb flash.
So, I just got disappointed coz the 30fps are only for PLAYBACK, *not* recording :(
i had 768.sold that to buy 5700.im thinkin i wud sold 5700 to buy this.ofcourse i will miss 3g.but philips provide best quality with cheaper price.
philips also has great display resolution,durability,rock solid casing,great battery life, great sound and camera.my 5700 camera shows too much noise.
so the benefits u are getting from this are-
smart good looking
rock solid body
unimaginable battery life
30 frame videos(dvd quality)
dnt think. go get it...
just bought this phone from a dealer in Hong Kong - let's see how much I like it once it is delivered in Canada. Keep you posted for my full review
Other Xenium phones can charge through miniUSB by pc ONLY when the battery isn't completely flat.
