Anonymous, 24 Jul 2010Just got mine...LOVE it!! But, there is no flash on the camera despite what the spec says.Guyz!! U hav mistaken they hav mentiond torch as a flash in the spec..,how can a 1.3 mp camera cum with flash..just use ur brain a bit..
hy gyz i am using this phone for 15 days.... and this is my 14th mobile..... i usually change my ph for a few months later....but this tym i will keep this ph.... bcoz this is a awesome ph that i ever got in such a low price..... i love it............... it is a great ph...
yeah how about 16mp with a xenon flash, auto-focus, touch screen, wi-fi, 32gb internal and space for infinite memory via memory cards...and ofcourse being dust-proof, waterproof, fall proof, freeze proof, and to some extent, heat-proof....?
guys guys isnt this enough? its just designed for rough n tough use, if you want a stylish handset, go get one!
The Samsung b2100 is a very nice phone. I've been using mine for 2 months and it is very tough indeed. Mine has remained scratch free all around. For all basic communication purposes (texting, calling), it never failed me for most of the time. I would say that this phone would be perfect if you're always on adventure or work in very humid, dusty or sandy environments, and if you have a constant nightmare of having your cellphone being dipped in the toilet, then this waterproof phone is definitely for you.
This phone may not be for everyone. Its camera is only 1.3Mpixels. Though its camera is decent in taking pictures, I could name a number of other brands with much better cameras. Its camera also has no flash capability.

how much can we expect 4m a fone of ds price range. a unique fon indeed. not made 4 evry1. samsung did a sonim bt at unbeatable price. no complains 4 ds fon as it is made 2 last in harsh conditions and not 4 multimedia, business etc. people wantin ds n dt please avoid it.
I've had this phone for a year now and I'm very satisfied!
One thing that's annoying is the low battery sound alert.. I can't find a way to turn it off unless I'm in Silent Mode. I want to be in Normal Mode and just let the battery run out without hearing those alerts!
Have any of u guys been able to "fix" this?
Just got this phone; let me tell you first that availability is pretty scarce in india. To answer the question some guy below me asked regarding display notification when you recieve a call or a message; yes there is notification displayed on screen. There are couple of things prospective buyers should be aware of; first off the feature set of this phone is pretty basic. But let me tell you, the loudspeaker is ultra awesome. Also, I think there is a problem with the ear piece in this phone. The solution to the problem is to reduce your ear piece volume to 5 or below. And even though the display is 256 k colors, it is bad due low resolution of the screen. Another thing, this phone is a strict no no to sms freaks, as the keypad is very hard. I also experienced problems during opera mini 4.2 installation. I am using airtel service. If you experience the same problem as i did, that is, you are able to download opera mini using the built browser but it doesnt connect during the initial setup stage - in all probability it is due to your time settings. First off, try disabling daylight saving. If this doesnt solve your problem, try setting your phone time zone to gmt; this should solve your problem. All in all, i am satisfied with my purchase. It does what it is supposed to do; plus it has features you dont expect from such a phone like Good music player and good all round functionality. But dont let the marine tag get to your head; the phone doesnt sport ultra outdoor features like alti meter and such. But let me tell you, it has one awesome torch lite. Also dont put your life on the phone's battery backup; it barely suffices if you ask me. Ciao.

I just got this mobile phone 8 days ago. I love the toughness of this Samsung B2100 Xplorer Mobile Phone in just £88.20 from fones.com and its very important factor for me because it reduces the risk of getting broke during a tumble situation. Battery timing, sound and voice quality also good features of this mobile phone.
Does anyone have an experience syncing this phone with a computer for contacts and address book? I manage my addresses with Mac OS address book and have been able to sync it with my phones (Blackberrys, Nokias, and Sony Ericssons) using isync. Sometimes by fetching an extra driver.
I've done my research into good outdoors phone and am heading out tomorrow to buy the B2100. Just wondering if someone can share their experience with syncing contacts.
battery life not that good/ accurate.. sometimes on standby only for one day... sometimes it would last for 2 day with calls.. battery indicator not that accurate also..
sturdy and indestructable
the owner of these phones will die first before the phone itself dies. its undestructable. dont expect wifi and other features coz this phone has one very unique feature.. IP57. keep em coming haters
very good phone! recommended! very tough! good design proportion and very light. The battery are awesome! i t last very long! mine can go up to one week! The price is reasonable with the function given. Well done Samsung!
the phone is god damn undestructable. I sunk it in the toilet accidently, got it out and it hadnt even switched off ;) also another time I left it on the top of my car, it fall off and still - no scratch ;) best phone I had!
I purchased this fone for myself for the exact reason tht it is shock, water and dust proof. Perfect for indian weather conditions. It is really good for these specs but i have been facing a battery problem since the time i have bought it. The battery indicator shows a full battery still the fone switches off by itself due to low battery reason. I charged it for a whole day still the same problem continues. Ifthis problem gets sorted out i think this is one of the best fone's for india :)
