This phone does *not* have a camera flash. It has a flashlight at the top of the phone, but this is seperate to the camera and doesn't affect the camera in any way (mainly because it's facing the wrong way!)

I got this phone 3 days ago..
PRO: its real..its indestructible!i went to the sea with the phone always with me (even if in the manual thers written that sealed water its not ok) and i went underwater at 4 meters for about 1 minute.. also i've thrown it in the sand, and i placed it to the sun rays for about 5 hours.. in the evening i simply washed it and...like a new phone ! everything works perfectly!
something more in deeply..also java works fine,there are games preinstalled...you can customize the pad with shortcuts to your fav applications.. camera also works good, max res 1280x1024.Radio HAS NOT rds, its a common fm radio BUT you can record what you are listening, very useful ! the device also hav a voice recorder, a timer and a stopwatch.. bluetooth works good and samsung new pc studio works great with it.Quadband phone.. it has a torchlight (a led) with a dedicated key.. speakers quality is very good.
Battery life its good i've charged it 1 time in 3 days of medium-high usage
CONS: i've found just one bad thing with this phone...the central key in the joypad cannot be re-assigned..and when you press it the wap browser will show up.. i hate this !
for any other question write me !
Just got one (in the moment is charging for the first time)
In real life it looks more beautiful, but I think that using it on daily basis the red paint will peel itself...I had MP3 player with the same material feel, so I say from experience....
Love this phone, have 1with o2 and its amazing......will not get damaged in any situation and i use mine daily heavy duty!!
would recomend to any builders, plasterers, carpenters etc(plumbers also)
awesome tough fone.. brilliant battery life looks great absolutely best fone i.ve ever had cos am a builder and usually fones only last a week this one is so tough but nice and slim
Anyone else can comment on battery life? Id like to know how many days one can get with very little texting+very little phoning?
Melker63, 12 Apr 2009"Why do you need GPS on a phone to make it a true "adventure" phone?" I have to agree. The ... more I support your opinions/points,about cell phone industry in general- and i`m looking forward to get my hands on the xplorer! I fiddled about with the 2700,but it was kind of a turnoff-toooo much bells an`whistles. The xplorer makes a whole lot more sense to me. Only problem now: how in darlings name do i wear out my 2,two ! Nokia 5140`s ?? ;)
had this phone a week now and it seems like a good phone.you can change the message tones unlike some samsunngs.ringtones are fairly loud and battery life lasted me 3 days but i was hammering it with all the functions.you should get about a week under normal use.screen is good and the 1.3 camera isnt that bad.texting is easy and call quality is excellent.all in all a good phone for your money.

I meant to mention that the screen is very reflective and in bright conditions can be a bit difficult to read.

I've already ordered and will be with me soon. :D And was about $100.
I got this phone from Play.com for £100. I have broken every other phone I have owned while working in construction. I've been very impressed by it's ruggedness so far. The features suit me perfectly. Voice memo, Bluetooth, Music Player, Torch, Great Battery Life, Excellent Background Noise Reduction, make this an ideal phone for me. There's no need for GPS or a fantastic camera in a mobile so inexpensive. They have put in pretty much all they could on it, and it performs pretty well. Only gripe is that like most Samsungs you can't have your own text alert.

They want $299 for it. But I can find it overseas for around $100 + shipping. Anyone know where else to look for this phone? I've been to the end of the internet trying to find it locally!!
We have just got these in store and I have to say, I've been waiting for this. Everday I have people saying they need a hard wearing phone that makes calls and text. I had to say the c702 up until this which is a k800i in a new shell. This is very tough and we have given it a good beating and it's done really well. I have waited for a phone like this and am glad it's here.
How can anybody say this is a copy or a new version, etc, etc. This phone is FULLY waterproof. Some people just want a phone to make phone calls with and this phone should do that better than any phone previously released.
Would have been great to have had GPS but if it was to sacrifice the strength of the phone (and end up like the SE phone) then it would have been pointless.
I want a phone that I can trust to make phone calls no matter what. This is that phone and I can't wait for mine to arrive.
Anybody compared it with the XP3?
That's the only real rival I think.
IP-57 for both, MIL-STD 810F for both.
The xplorer looks more softcore - fashionable with the better screen, camera, memory, etc.
Lets wait and see.
