1) which software did u use for video conversion
2) where did u buy the data c... more1) Format Factory
2) From local mobile shop. Theoretically any Micro USB cable will work provided latest drivers are installed. I also asked for original, he said its Rs 550. But I bought Chinese one for Rs 80.
3) I use Samsung Kies to connect. New PC studio or PC studio 3 doesn't detect the handset.
4) Headphones are simply awesome with various presets like Pop, Rock, Wide, Surround. One can actually feel the difference.
Loudspeaker are not of music quality. If you listen music through speakers then better look for other music phones, but for listening through headphones its way better than other music phones. Also for some specific high quality ringtones the sound is just awesome and can be heard easily.
5) Keypad is spacious, I do not text much, so cant comment much on regular smsing. You do not have to press hard to enter in a key, so can be used with one had easily.
1) which software did u use for video conversion
2) where did u buy the data cable from ??
3) did u use kies / npc to connect to PC ???
4) how's the audio quality from headphones and loudspeaker
5) how is sms experience and ease of texting with one hand ?
Watched two and half hour movie of Robot. Awesome battery, could have watched another movie and still have some more left.
The movie settings I used for conversion are:
Data rate: 384 kbps
Total Bitrate: 447kbps
Audio Bitrate: 64kbps 22khz sample rate
I have tested a HD video converted to upto 1Mbps data rate and 320kbps audio with 44khz sampling. Works smoothly without any problems.
An issue I have observed, the video and audio goes out of sync after watching for a few minutes, have to close and open the video file again to wath it in sync. Not a big issue for me since it differs only by a 1-2 seconds.
Harshith Mannem, 11 Nov 2010Do you mean I need to update 'Samsung NPC'?"Samsug New PC Studio" available from the website is different from what we got with our USB data cable cd, that is "Samsung PC studio 3" (new prefix not there). I am talking about the driver cd software Samsung PC studio 3, it checked for update immediately after I installed it and downloaded updates.
Is this phone 3G-compatible? The Samsung India website and DOCOMO website say so.
Harshith Mannem, 11 Nov 2010Could you please upload the '19 mb drivers'..I do not have any installer of the update, It was downloaded automatically after installing the driver cd. So just click Tools>Check for update...
I read someone saying that internet cannot be connected through KIES. I just want to say that you CAN connect to internet flawlessly with KIES.
Harshith Mannem, 11 Nov 2010Is is an M600 cable?
I installed the drivers from the cd I got with cable. Then, I installe... moreYes, I too have M600 cable. Since this is a new set make sure to update the driver, did you download the 19mb of update?
Since it says the usb is unrecognized, the drivers appropriate to the handset are not yet installed, so updating drivers is very important.
Since this is the first time I am using a samsung set, I installed whatever is available for it, namely:
1) Driver cd which has Samsung PC Studio 3, updated to latest version 3.2.3 IE2
2) Samsung Kies 188.8.131.5293_82
3) New PC studio 184.108.40.20664_2 downloaded from http://www.samsungmobile.co.uk/support/softwaremanuals/softwareNpsUpdate.do
While writing these version numbers I noticed, Kies last update was in 2009 whereas NPC's last update is in 2010. So if you can download NPC and try it, it might do the trick.
GetMan, 11 Nov 2010The drivers I am talking about are the one which comes in cd with data cable. I installed that... moreIs is an M600 cable?
I installed the drivers from the cd I got with cable. Then, I installed KIES and re-started the computer. When I connect the phone, the Windows' task bar says that an un-recognized usb device is connected. My phone automatically connects to the pc and then disconnects itself over and over again.
I even master-resetted the phone, but to no avail.
Harshith Mannem, 11 Nov 2010Yeah, even I bought a china one..the model no. is 'M600'. Where do I get the drivers?
BTW, ... moreThe drivers I am talking about are the one which comes in cd with data cable. I installed that cd, it connected to internet and downloaded another 19MB of update.
Forget about NPC (New PC Studio) software, its for old phones.
Here is the complete walk through of what I did:
First installed kies, did not detect, then installed PC studio driver cd, that too did not work.
Then another day I installed NPC just to check out, then tried to connect, it worked! Note as fas as I believe NPC is not required at all.
I guess a simple restart of PC is all that is required. Also if you are connecting through front USB port, try connecting at the back usb port of CPU. Let us know your results.
GetMan, 10 Nov 2010What problem are you having with data cable? Did you install the drivers?
Actually I bought... moreYeah, even I bought a china one..the model no. is 'M600'. Where do I get the drivers?
BTW, whats NPC?
nikhil, 10 Nov 2010which color looks better and rich dark brown or black gold ??black gold, i got the same. looks very stylish
Water-boy, 10 Nov 2010If i put this phone in water by mistake for 1 day , will it work the next day ??No, it will not work the next day. You have to heat it at 100 degree Celsius in a microwave oven before it can work again.
