I bought the d600 over ebay. What can i say? Awsesome phone! videos and pictures are of a high standard quality! and the large screen makes it clearer! also the extendable memory is a great feature! plus also the feature to put word documents, power point slides etc and plugging it into your t.v is great for my university presentations!
I would advise this phone anyone!
Only one fault with MY phone! - the battery lasts for 1 day!!!! and half a day when viewing vids and playing music!!!!!!
how long does everyone elses battery last for????
Think I got a dodgy one off ebay!
Wish i could find the guy that sold it to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
no doubt this is the best phone from samsung.Big and clear display,stero sound,tv out put and it looks great but i still feel nokia's N series with symbian os has an edge.As far as sony ericsson is concern w800 or k750i is of the similar quality specially the sound of sony is second best after ipod and the camera result is the best from all the current phones if looks could kill then d600 is the best,and if you want to install different application then i think N series with symbian is a good choice and if you want to listen to music or you want a to carry a very good camera with you then w800 ro k750 of sony ericsson is the best.
To Nick: No you can't use your D500speaker for the D600, it will have no effect on it.
I love this phone, it is really amazing.
Some reviews told that the camera wasn't very good for a 2 mp camera, but I would say it is pretty good, only pictures on distances shorter than 1 meter.. aren't nice.
The mp3 player is great, fullscreen video's, expandabel memory, nice bright screen.. just great :)
Had a nokia 6230i, liked that one also, and I still think that the mp3 player on handsfree is WAY better than the D600. Not so loud and clear as the 6230i.
However, great phone! :)
i have just got the phone after owning the d500 it seemed like the only option. its says that u can upload aac/aac+ files. Those are the same format itunes however when i try to upload it says their format is m4a or something??????? please can someone help. plz email me if u have the answer
my first phone was a Nokia 3200
and having this phone now, is a real big difference
Hi i have a D600 and i brought a speaker from a shop that works in the D500 can the speaker go in teh D600 and dose it work
Can someone help this is really starting to get my back up please e-mail me if you know the answer.
When you get a call the front display comes up with a call and also at the bottom of the display it says accept or decline, if you happen to push the accept button then great but if you press the decline button it cuts off the phone.
I have the front display locked and also set the slide operation to either the two settings that are available yet it makes no difference to incoming calls.
If you have this phone in your pocket and get a call and put you hand in your pocket to get the phone it is easy to push the decline button by mistake.
I phoned Samsung and they know nothing about it or could not help.
Surely they tried the phone before releaseing it and surely if the phone is locked how can the buttons become active on call.
Please help, this is the only thing that is wrong with this phone.
To LJ: Well not everything is the same as on the television. When i put my phone to the TV-OUT and i play video's he auto jump to full screen on the tv. And you can only see the screen on the TV when you have put at TV-OUT.
My D600 by Jack Handy
I love my Samsung D600. It's the 2nd cellphone I've ever owned. My first phone was the Moto V60. What A piece of CRAP! I put up with it for 4yrs cuz I was broke & didn't know better. So having the D600 is a MAJOR upgrade. It's got all the features I want. I don't txt message so the slow T9 speed doesn't bother me. I don't use the brower cuz I also have a BB provide by work. My fav. feature is the mpeg4 video playback. I download my fav. tv shows and convert the avi files to mpeg4 video files. Copy them to a transflash card and watch an episode or 2 at work during smoke & washroom breaks. You probably think the screens too small to watch a long video. You'be surprised because you can adjust the video 90to180 degrees and have video fit fullscreen. The the viewing screen size is then 40mm X 30mm (widescreen). I also like being abe to set picture and mp3 ringtones for my contacts. I just find that neat. If you don't care about txting and browsing the web, buy this phone. It's got everyhing else going for it.
I bought this cellphone in Chicago's Little India (Devon Ave). For local buyers, if you pay in cash, you can bargain with all the electronic shops. I paid $320 in cash 3 weeks ago.
Do any of you have a comment with regards to the use of TV-out in of the D600? why is it that in the tv commercial, it shows that you can view the picture/video/doc in full screen from the TV. but when i used the TV-out, its just like that i am using a tv as the monitor for my cell. and that the screen is just in the middle. is it really just like that? if not, how can i modify my tv viewing options?
If your interested....here's another review of the D600 that I found informative: http://www.mobileburn.com/review.jsp?Page=1&Id=1873
I've had the D600 for about a month now. The battery life is 2-3 days. Users that waste the battery playing mp3s and video files will have to the charge the cellphone everyday. Also, if you buy your phone online, make sure its from a reputable dealer. Some online retailers will sell you third-party batteries. Especially the ones from Hong Kong!
i really want to buy this phone and i think it looks really nice but i have just bought a phone for christmas the motorola razor and it is rubbish!! seriously dont buy it!
and i want to get the inside info on the D600 before i get it. I have learnt my less0on on just rushing into buying a phone just because it looks nice!
my samsung d600 works with the bluetooth headset 'bluetrek g2', but you should answer the phone by pressing on the button on the headset and not on the phone because else it will not use the headset.
To Pillsbury Doughboy: Yes it has a forward/rewind button which is better then the D500. With the D500 you had to switch between the buttons that could be annoying.
To Phone_lover: Nope you can't use video as a wallpaper.
To Shirben: If you don't have windows XP or 2000 you can't use your PC Studio.
1) 3-4 days if no mp3,photo,wap.
3)pictures quality not bad, but no autofocus(can't use camera for text). Night mode is shit (compared to N6230i)- but with flash diode you can take photos in close distance.
. Video recording is very good compared to other phones - 352x288.
mp3 player-external speakers could be better
4) Not bad, for me it's sufficiently clear
5) depends on phone's free memory and recording quality(~3MB/min in best quality)
good video recording;
fast(exept viewing pictures from full TransFlash card)
no autofocus in camera;
no mp3 in background;
no vibration and melody at the same time in ringtone;
no full screen for pictures viewing;
it's imposible to select other than Mobile phonebook's entry when sending sms.
But for me it is user friendly
D600 is really a great phone. i also used to have second thought for D600 vs K750i/W800i. The only negative i see in the D600 is the picture quality since it is true that K750i is better when in comes to picture because of the auto focus feature. but none the less, i dont see anything else bad in d600.maybe it depends on the manufacturing if you will end up with a defected phone but hey, you can always return it if that's the case. BTW, i ended up buying the d600. cool!
Is the D600 compatible with only Samsung bluetooth headsets? If NO...can someone recommend a headset?
To D600 owners:
First of all i really like this phone(design,features) but i hesitate to buy it because of some complaints and negative points on this phone.Is it true that this phone has software problems and short battery life as stated by some others?
(Is it decent/reliable?Let's say when i use it for only some phone calls and not for other functions how many days will go?)
(2)Can this phone use separately phonebook entries either on sim or phone's memory ,not both as a unity(double entries)?
(3)How good is this phone in: pictures quality,video recording(indoors/outdoors),voice clarity,mp3 player, etc?
(4)Viewing videos-pictures on TV are sufficiently clear or not?
(5)How long is the video recording on this phone?
(6)What are the major advantages-disadvantages using this phone?Is it user friendly or not?
(7)If you rate this phone what score would you give?
I would like to have your honest opinion for the above issues as your answers would be very helpful.
Thanks in advance.
