If you record videos in CIF (352x288), usually a 1-minute-video = 2MB. So I guess the aggregate length of video recording is about 35 minutes. Whereas, Nokia phones that record in QCIF (144x176) may last more than one hour but the resolution is intolerable. That goes same for SonyEricsson W800i and K750i. I don't care if a mobile phone wields CIF, QCIF, or MMS...what matters here is that does it record in MPG-4 instead of 3GP?
I havent tried recording super long vids but i got 5 minutes before i got bored recording.
Battery life is kinda short. If ur playing mp3's, i can drain the phone in one day. Just using the phone occasionally, i drain it in 2.5 days. If i have bluetooth, mp3, vids, talking on the phone a lot, half a day.
-a lot of packed features in a small sleek phone. most of the advantages you can find are on the specifications. One thing i can point out for you is the sound quality, its very debatable ,but i think its great or good enough for me.
-Bluetooth has the A2DP profile for the new headsets that allow you to transfer mp3's to ur bluetooth headset.
-solid build: when you hold it in your hand you will know wat i mean. The rubbery plastic on the back, smooth edges, etc. and a nice form factor.
-No flight mode: since its a business phone you expect this phone to have it.
-No torch/flashlight: since the lens is on the outside, i expected a short cut key to use the phone as a flashlight. Otherwise they should have kept the camera lens on the inside like the D500
-Short batterylife: might decided to buy another battery. Atleast you can charge the phone by the usb cable they give you. I charge my phone through my laptop when im on the go.
-Lack of macro mode or autofocus: causes blurry pictures especially for pictures up close.
Other disadvantages that dont bother me
-no sms ringtones
-No vibrate and ring at the same time: it has it but I guess people are complaining it doesnt vibrate and ring at the same exact momment. Instead it vibrates first then rings/vibrate.
-Files copy to the phone instead of the memory card directly: Well its faster this way.
-Slow transfer rate between card and phone
-Music player in the back ground
Overall I like this phone a lot. Had it for close to 2 months. Yes i was the lucky one that bought it when it came out for cheap.
To D600 owners:
First of all this is an amazing phone in terms of design and features.
I really want to buy this phone but i am hesitated and a bit confused with all these reviews.I am sure you have tested how long is the video recording,not in a memory card but in the phone's internal memory.I want exactly to know this as i find it an important thing on a phone.Also i would like to know how is the battery life and main advantages and disadvantages of this phone.
Thanks in advance
PS:Sony Ericcson funs don't answer to my questions,only D600 owners.
What are you smoking! Give me a phone that has TV OUT and all the features that this phone has and get back to me. Dont tell me the w800i. It doesnt have stereo speakers, TV OUT, or document viewer.
You need to purchase an adapter..then you can put in your regular headphones (i.e. IPOD). I bought mine on EBay for $10
Is there a different headset or earphones for the d600? Really hate the headset that came with it.
Can anyone please tell me what i have to do so that the screen doesnt go completely black when the slider is closed? i keep having to open it or press a button so that i can see if i missed a message or call or even to see the time. Thanks!
this is the BEST FONE EVAAAAA a bit of a step up from ma 3510i! its so gud i donmt fink i will eva need anutha fone WOO PAAAH
this phone is probably the best phone ever made . i dont know what i would do without it
hello! bought the phone on saturday..two days ago. have wanted a samsung for ages but now having bought it im unsure?battery life is not great, it has few decent ringtones, file manager is confusing..my friend sent me some tones via bluetooth, they have been stored in the 'other files' option but i cant seem to access them..?? but yeah its a dinky little machine with no radio..one of the features i was mostly looking forward too and was told it had it! we'll see how it goes!!
hey please can someone help me? i used to have S.E k750 and u could get ur photos from the phone onto p.c, is there anyway u can do this with the d600? much appreciated! em x
got phone on friday last.
1st of all you cant play anything over 30 seconds in mp4 with 320x240. 3gp sounds awful. press 1 to get widescreen is good. no mp3s allowed for txts when all we use nowadays is txts, we got these crappy tones.
if you connect the usb cable it also charges your phone, as my fones been full battery since i got it and thats cus ive benn uploading video from pc. the sound is good on mp3 player. image of pics is class. surprised theres no proper internet saying its 2005 now and the phone aint cheap. overall tho i like it.
Hey got this phone the other day, kept on having to charge the battery the first couple days but seems to be fine now. There seems to be a lot of people complaining about battery problems - this is really down to how long you use the phone for and which features you use - if you listen to your MP3 Player on it for 4 hours then common sense tells you that the battery will be low!!! I work 10 hours a day and also have a work mobile therefore do not run down the battery quickly - again its down to the individual user.
All those unsure about getting D600 or W800i - I have spoke to a few phone stores and I have been told that one of the main problems with W800i is the fact that its white, it gets dirty really easy and this is why stores are not displaying it as much, furthermore store staff are replacing theres after 2 months as the phone looks dirty and old. If your after a Walkman phone wait for the W900 as this one's meant to be the daddy of walkmans. I was desperate for a new mobile so wasnt patient enough to wait for W900.
Can anyone tell me how to get free / cheap games or music for the D600.
upgraded my E800 for D600... boy am i impressed. D600 is an improvement n i fully agree with the reviews here. Camera takes 1-2 sec b4 it snaps a shot... batt life is extremely short if u keep fiddling with the camera, use Bluetooth etc. But other than these grouses, I LOVE IT!!! the 2mp cam may not be as gd as K750, but HEY no regrets man!
