im using this phone samsung c3212 for the past 2 month. my opinion the phone is good. i was earlier using china handset sigmatel [ as i need dual sim mobile most] even thogh chinese set work good it has it own limits, within 1 yr of time all its part bcame loose and now its just using as a home phone .... so i brought this mobile.
its really good, easy to swap and call numbers, can get call from both sim at a time,looks cute,memory card it support upto 8gb so no prob, music and effect i really love it, its cool, radio is excellent, dries very little battery pack up for music and radio. talktime its takes hardly 2 hrs with both sim active and if you enable single sim it got relly good backup of upto 6hrs of talktime and upto 5 days of standby [ i checked tht myself ], got fake call, keypads are nice, looks strong and long going.till now i dont get any problem of hangup, got photocall. supports pc suite.
camera is bad even my main phone samsung wave s8500 secondary camera is good, loud speaker is not good,msg memory is very low just 300msgs can be stored......
although it got little less functions and little more price than a chinese mobile, the name samsung worth it ..
for samsung fans, this phone is worth to buy.....for any more queries you can mail me at email@example.com
i bought this mobil the last march-10,with in 15 days the phone will not working,so i change the moyher board under warranty.but last wk the same problem,again the board was pblm,again i given the phone to service.my smalst request do not purchase this mobil.
i have been using this phone from last 8 months..from 1st day itself it started to hang..reached to very worst condition after 1 month..i gave it to samsung service centre..it took 1 month to replace the mother board..!
now it is working good..but drawbacks are:
1.poor camera..(it's okay if u don't need camera)
2.doesn't support graphical smiley
3.doesn't support languages other than English
4.can't use any other options while sending group messages
5.doesn't support themes
6.no numbering is provided for inbox messages.
7.to create grops need to copy contacts to phone memory.
8.Hangs a lot(during earlier days)
if u can adjust with these it's a good phone..
