hello!!!wanna knoe how to use dis fon camera da best possible way..???tell me da settings if possible..thx!!
Hi there, jus a quickie. Do you need to purchase the software and cable or is this supplied in the box,
Many Thx Dave,
i have just bought this phone after only owning nokia brand phones for the past 10 years. on the whole its not a bad phone:-
DESIGN - solid looking structure - for all those times you will drop it.
SMS (TEXT SERVICES) very different to nokia (prefer nokia's easy texting style) but proably wont be able to use nokia's style because they may have patent it.
CAMERA - camera is in a good spot and lense is hidden away; whilst not been used so no uncesary damage here. Quality of the camera is a big difference compared to my last phone (Nokia 6230) and is alot better; flash is a MUST for any type of camera.
INBOX - can only save 10 messages, but sent box is 200 - this doesn't make sense (put a 100 in each)
MEMORY CARD - non-existant - very bad move, i beleive these phone's will have to make these cards a minimum spec, so you can take pics put them on your memory card and insert them in a card reader and print or store them to your computer.
VIDEO - very good my previous phone only had 10 mins of recording time so to have 1 hour is exceptional.
GROUP - cant seem to add people to this as it keeps telling me its "EMPTY" "doh!"
INSTRUCTION BOOKLET - this thick manual doesn't tell you about half of the features/functions the phone has - nokia would never do this.
EXTERNAL SPEAKER - i prefer the sound on the on board speaker, because it sounds better more bass; and both speakers are of the same volume level - so this is compltely useless item.
BATTERY TALK TIME - on all my nokia's i have been able to go without charging for a whole week - Samsung every 2/3 days, for saying i dont talk on the phone alot and mainly use texts. - not very good!
SCREENSAVER - does not exist - what a shame people want to customise their phone to represent themselves, fortuantely my last nokia phone had this function.
PUSH MESSAGE - dont understand this feature as it doesn't give an adequate explaination of the use of this facility, when i go to slect it and then slect INBOX it says "NO MESSAGE" what does this mean?? answer on a postcard!
@ around £200 for this phone VERY PRICY - i'd say wait until the new one comes out and see if it is better than this one, before handing those hard earned notes over, but how long does the average phone last anyway certainl not long enough to warrent such price ranges!
i think this phone is great i work with mobile phones and this has been really popular for the first quater of the year!
and in my opinion will continue to sell well through he year until a new version is released!!!
You can love this phone but the other thing....
Anyway its a great phone full of cutting edge features. Really classy, business looking and trust me this phone is so sexy it will literally pull chicks 4 u :).
it does have built in loudspeaker. the plug in speaker is an additional accessory..
I've had the D500 a few weeks now and figured I should share my thoughts.
Though a great phone, it's probably seriously over-hyped and just a touch over-priced. Having owned many phones in my line of work, i honestly believe the Motorola V620 to be one of the best on the market for plain old build quality and class. Why Samsung couldn't follow Motorola's lead and use a little steel in the contruction beats me.
The V500 is undoubtedly Samsung's best effort to date, but other than its camera resolution it brings nothing very new or exciting to the table, certainly nothing we haven't seen before for less money. I'm not running it down, it is a VERY good phone, but it's not the legend some folk would have you believe.
The phone I want isn't available yet. It would have the Motorola V620's build quality, Nokia's ease of menu navigation, Sharp's QVGA colour screen and camera module, Sony Ericson's Bluetooth and radio and Sagem's price tag.
i have a d500 in a graphite color. it is a damn good phone but i would like to see the following features on the upgrade to this phone.
1>> a built in loud speaker instead of the appolo landing pod
2>> mp3 message alert tones
3>> upgradeable memory card
only prob i have before getting this phone tomorrow, is that the o2 shop don't have the lmtd. sliver edition :( which i like, but also think the black is more classy :S wat you guys think ? also don't wanna get this is the d600 is gonna come out in a few months :( wat you guys think ? cheers
I did have a good look at the s700 worst phone to txt on in the world buttons are terrible and the backwards slide motion is retarded!!!
so you can download simpsons eepys and music videos and have screen savers apart from the clock , right ? wats the picture like wen you watch music videos or simspons eppys and can i put mpeg4 on to it ?
i was going to get a s700i cause i do agree it is better than this phone. but for 2 reasons i didnt get it.
1. its way to xpensive 4 a mobile!
2. it is like 1 of da biggest damn phones eva! just too big.
i now have a d500 and lv it to bits. its ace. every feature. 1 prob is it has no memory card slot. real downfall.
4 u all. u can get screen savers!!! and u cn dwnld simpsons, music vids etc. just has to be in right format. hope helps.
if for almost the same price one can buy sony ericsson S700i which has allot better camera than this phone plus better resoulution plus support for mophun games plus memory card slot then why buy d500 please before buying this check sony ericssons s700i first
Ok someone with the phone please tell us if you can have screensavers or not someone must know and someone can tell us if you can play Mpeg4 files such as simpson files coz a m8 said ya can't
A Kick-ass fone!! Looks cool, got loads of features. Just wish Icould afford 1!!!!
How do you activate the built-in-handsfree on the phone if it does have one, and secondly, how do you zoom in on pictures once uve taken them or when they are in the album...Other than this, this phone Rocks
This fon really got wut it takes to be one of da best fon in da world!!=P classic design....da features wuz realy good and i personally thinks this da best fon among other fon which do not have memory card!!..this da best..other normal fon would not have so big memory like this!!=)yah...d500 roxx!!!no doubt da best of da best!!=)
omg, i love this fone...elegant design - stylis and young- those functions in the phone...and last but not least : the plug-in speaker...it's so lould and clear...even better then the one for E630 ( compare the structure of those 2 and u will see 0...i love it.....( but still sad cuz I can not go online with Cingular Wireless...dun know why, can you guys tell me? so i can log on, plz....)
Heres wot I know in response to ur questions:
* For the Samsung D500 zooming in on a pic. I think it will only work on images uve uploaded not those pics taken by the camera. Not too sure about this one.
* For the uploading of a Simpsons episode. Yes it can do it so long as the movie file is in MPEG4 or 3GP.
* For the Screen Sver question. It does take screensavers. They will show up in the images folder though, as a .gif or .jpg rom wot I know.
* Lastly about the loudspeaker. It does have good volume. and using the Soundmate Plug in speaker will make it even louder.
Hope that answers ur questions.
zoom, upload episode, screen saver, loudspeaker
