I'm thinking of buying this B2100 but hesitant in a way that the screen resolution is very low and quite small. What I like is the ruggedness and the torch. Can anyone please reply which is better this B2100 or the nokia 6303. Thanks!
Please someone Reply. Does this phone support recording Calls? Im thinking about buying this phone but am not sure if this certain feature is available in b2100.
i m r a n, 15 Dec 2009whteva u'l are takin about "samsung B2700" is your answer.. it ws released b4 b2100 bt due to ... moreSamsung b2700 wasnt successful because of its poor performance. Its battery life can last for merely a day which defeats its outdoor purpose. Samsung b2100 can last for up to 3-4 days with standard use which they have improved. I think that b2700 has features fit for outdoor use like digital compass, altimeter and also a flashlight but due to battery's poor performance and it keeps on freezing, it didnt become successful. I think they improved the battery life and improved the "RUGGEDNESS" by releasing samsung marine. A lot of people have negative comments about samsung b2700. Samsung b2100 is the better choice because its battey life is meant for not hitting the socket for days plus its handy flashlight which is useful in night adventures in camping. Samsung b2100 has better mp3 sound in speakers and headphones than b2700. Plus Samsung b2100 has an equaliser which b2700 doesnt.
i cannot install java game or jad file.......can anyone help me...???
whteva u'l are takin about "samsung B2700" is your answer.. it ws released b4 b2100 bt due to software bugs it ws nt commercially successful..
Its been a while since i had an outdoor phone, my first was the siemens m65, and the b2100 is rocking the boat, as for features i would agree with the other people here about the phone not having an altimeter,thermometer and compas
BEST PHONE EVAH, 13 Dec 2009The sound quality difference of speakers of the two are: samsung b2100: loud sound, but lack... moreit doesnt mean that if samsung's speakers lack bass, it's not good for music. IT's excellent for music because the sound quality is clear and the high notes are defined. Lg gm200 only has an extra subwoofer which adds the sound quality. Samsung is the choice!
HSSK, 22 Aug 2009I'm really confused about sound quality of SAMSUNG B2100. Can any experienced person can give ... moreThe sound quality difference of speakers of the two are:
loud sound, but lacks a little bass but clear when playing mp3's
louder than most phones
loud sound, with dolby sound system,rich bass in speakers, also clear sound
in short, both phones give excellent sound quality in headphones. But in speakers, the lg gm200 is louder and richer in bass but samsung is also loud and clear but only lacks the subwoofer speaker of LG gm200. In fact, b2100 is good as a music phone. It only lacks a little bass in the speakers because its not a music phone. But if you want a phone with a little extras like a handy torch or waterproof/dustproof/shockproof, then b2100 is good for you because it works good also as a music player because of its lou speakers. If you want a phone that is really intended for music and has a speaker quality above most phones but lacks essential features like flashlight and waterproofness because you only want music, then LG gm200 is for you. If I were you id choose samsung b2100 because both lg gm200 and samsung are in the same price range and samsung works excellent as a music player plus has more outdoor features like torchlight and shockproofness. LG gm200 is only intended for music. Id opt for additional features like flashlight, noice cancellation and shockproofness so GO FOR SAMSUNG because it works above average as a music player because of its louder-than-average loudspeaker. it only lacks a litle bass
excellent music quality, even on loudspeaker
nice camera, clear enough
radio with recording as mp3 quality
nice keypads, comfortable even when stiff
no compass, altimeter, thermometer which shouldve been there because its an outdoor phone
Wilhelmina Venter, 27 Jun 2009Hi European, you cant get the phone in any other color except black and red...but why do you w... moreHere in the philippines the available colors are:
black and red
black and orange
black and green
black and gray
I like the black and grey the best because it looks more outdoorish.
Nice work samsung, just hope the new rugged phones of samsiung will have a compass and solar panels
This phone is EXCELLENT, nice torch
Although i think that in the NEAR future samsung should release a real EXPLORER phone which really fits its name, im not saying b2100 is bad :)
It should have these features:
-higher IP ratings for better water resistance
-more multimedia features
-more outdoor features
-they should include a compass and thermometer, altimeter which is most important for "explorer phones"
-they should also include a flashlight TORCH like b2100 which is VERY VERY USEFUL AND MOST IMPORTANT
-It would be best if they included a SOLAR PANEL because it would make sense with the outdoor stuff being not able to hit the socket for days when you are camping or lost in the woods
-Better camera so you can shoot better scenery photos
-SUNLIGHT MODE like in samsung U600 so you can see the display even under direct sunlight outdoors
-a mosquito reppelant which is the high decible ringing, perfect for tents ( i made one using monotones by composing the highest notes in old nokia composer)
I JUST CANT WAIT FOR SAMSUNG TO RELEASE ANOTHER PHONE WITH THESE FEATURES I WROTE. I CAN FEEL THAT THEY ARE JUST TESTING US IF WE ARE IN TO RUGGED PHONES AND IF THEY SUCCEED WITH B2100 SAELES, THEY WILL RELEASE AN OUTDOOR PHONE WITH MORE OUTDOOR FEATURES. I FEEL THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT FEATURES AN OUTDOOR PHONE SHOULD HAVE ARE SOLAR PANELS, COMPASS AND TORCH. IM SO CONTENTED WITH MY B2100
This is the best phone ever! It has all the features that everyone will sure love! Im soo into outdoors and the most useful feature of it is the flashlight. You wouldnt need to carry flashlights with you anywhere, the most common problem of outdoor people is having to "find" their flashlights in the dark when they may have lost them already. With just one touch of a button the light is activated and is VERY bright for a built-in torch. I used it in our recent vacation in Boracay island to go crab hunting in the pitch black darkness. Very usefull! I love the music player which has excellent sound quality especially the loudspeaker which is very loud. The flashlight could be used for: Blackouts or power outages, seeing your way in the dark, night hiking in the beach or the mountains, finding stuff at night, looking at maps, ghost hunting and many more. It has the brightest flashlight beam compared to phones with built in lights because the beam is spotted not spread like other phones like nokia 5500 sport. I didnt submerge it in water yet because i want to maintain its "brand newness". It has a high tech feeling everytime you access the menu functions. In fact with its basic display that all sites claim, it isnt bad at all, it's excellent with its modern UI! It has that high tech snappy feeling whenever you press buttons. The camera is clear enough ,for taking photos of sceneries you find while trekking in mountains like baguio or banaue rice terraces but i dont find it dissapointing. Im wondering y other phone sites are saying that the camera is dissapointing, IT'S NOT! In fact its camera is just right for viewing pictures because a lot of people are used to super high definition cameraphones.They forgot about 1.3 megapixel phones which were considered very high end before. It also has a long battery life, It lasted for 4 days with me with some calling (5 calls) 30+texting, almost 2 hours of flashlight use( when we did crab hunting in boracay in the pitch black) and nearly 30 mins of music player (obsessed Michael jackson fan). You can use the music player so you will forget about your loneliness and fear of ghosts or darkness when you are alone in the dark finding your way home and completely scared because of the silence and use the torch light to guide your way (heee heee im xcited with this phone in dark conditions)
Bought the black with olive drab accents version of this phone. I've had it now for the last couple of days and I must say that I'm quite satisfied with it so far. Did a dunk test and the phone performed as advertised. No water ingress noted, it stayed dry as a whistle.
Be warned though, although this phone can be extremely tough, at the end of the day it is still a BASIC PHONE. Got that: BASIC PHONE. The camera and FM radio are just a bonus. Other than that, the features of this phone might as well belong to something from five years ago.
If you're looking for a phone with a TV or a microwave oven, then best look elsewhere. This was built for one thing in mind: to survive harsh environments and situations where other phones won't.
this phone offering excellent video quality if you use perfect mp4 converting system.
reply if anyone know more.
