great phone.... I am very much impressed by this ...
1] Lot of features – some nifty ones like
a] Time of day when you want the keypad light to come on
b] Flexible alarm settings
c] When making a call, numbers appear at the bottom of the screen as you type so that you can select
2] Pressing any button switches on the backlight – very useful since you do not have to unlock first.
3] Brilliant torch
4] The voice quality is generally good

I said this phone would be perfect IF there is some flash light for the camera, at lead LED flash...
Been using this phone for some time now and think it's a great phone but I do have one issue, which I find a bit of a disappointment considering this is targeted as an outdoor phone, and that is the screen display. I find the screen impossible to read in bright sunlight no matter what the LCD brightness is set at. Any others had the same issues? Other than this it's a fab handset and the best battery life to come out of Samsung yet (in the phones I've had anyway) unless of course the light accidentally turns on in your pocket because you forget to lock the keypad.....

The keypad tones are very fun to listen to.
Will make you happy.
Can handle huge memory SDHC cards. Love it.
The LED light is awesome.
Very good for rough and tumble use.
You can toss it around or drop it with no fear.
It is now hanging around my neck. The battery life is good!!! The LED light is very powerful.
This mobile has the strongest flashlight of all cellphones with flashlights! I never expected it to be that powerful, in fact you can use it in total darkness without hassle. Its music player even can play for houyrs without sucking too much power and it has a setting where you can put an equalizer background that is accurate. I used its flashlight in mountain climbing Mt. Kanlaon last week. Very useful!. Its torch can be turned on when the keypad is not locked. Its NOT true that even when the keypad is locked, the torch can be activated.
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2009I'm thinking of buying this B2100 but hesitant in a way that the screen resolution is very low... moreThe Samsung is definitley better than the nokia 6303! The user interface of nokia is too BORING and the samsung b2100 user interface has a high tech snappy feeling. Its screen is even bright. It has high tech music player with nice equalizer. All nokia phones have a same, common user interface.
Tough Phone, 20 Dec 2009I just bought a GREY and Black model at SM Cebu City, Philippines Junrex for Cash Php 5,975.00... more@Tough Phone
I estimate the light from our B2100 to be around 6 lumens. This is basing it from my 9 lumens (minimum power mode) Fenix LED flashlight. And yes it does offer one of the best mobile flashlight beams I've seen so far. OT, those "LED Lenser" lights from Hahn Manila aren't really very good. I have a hunch your B2100 will outlast it by several years.
it'll be perfect if :
1. screen resolution at least QCIF
2. no more than 15 mm thick and 48 mm wide
3. there is at least LED flash for the camera
this fone rocks man, im not all about the bells and whistles i just need a fone for calls and sms......beats all other brands for rugged fone including sonim (bad fone) .
no trouble with mine and has exceeded my expectations for durability and all it has to offer, also is not a brick like most other ip54-67 rating fones. be with me till it or i die. peace
I just bought a GREY and Black model at SM Cebu City, Philippines Junrex for Cash Php 5,975.00. Inserted a 4 GB Sandisk card. Very handy.
The most important thing - the LED flashlight is VERY BRIGHT. It's even brighter than my dedicated LED LENSER flashlight.
Very rugged and tough build.
The price does not hurt my budget.
I feel very safe and secure that if I drop this thing, it will not break easily.
Basic phone I use as a backup.
Until I buy the Nokia E72 whose price has now gone down from the stratospheric Php 21,000 to just over Php 18,000.
I highly recommend this phone.
For its features, five stars out of five.
