BTW D720 has speakers for lictening MP3s, but so far I couldnt figure out how to use it as speaker phone. Most probably you cant.
No 6280 doesn't have duel speakers. You have to use the earphone.
Read the review.
I will look for spare bettreies. BTW what written languages your D720 has? Is it Deutsh/Englihs/Francias? or Chinese/Englsih?Just wanted to know which version you have.
There is a list of all websites selling this phone. Check them out. I got mine from plemix and they have the lowest pric.e...fast shipping too.
Nokia 6280 vs. Samsung D720
Both are sliding phones. however 6280 sliding mechanism is not stable and it makes creak sounds. I think no one can beat Samsung on sliders. D720 works great.
Dimension: pretty much same. 6280 is slimmer by 2mm
Weight: D720 lighter by 5 g
Display: 6280 has QVGA 320x240, a bit larger screen , D720 has 176 x 220 pixels 1.9" screen.
Phone book: 6280 can hold up 500 entries only.D720 1000
Card slot: 6280 has mini SD might support 1gb or more, D720 has MMC micro ..i belive it an take upto 512mb only.
Operating system: 6280 operates on series 40 and according to the review here, it loads fast.It even gets started without SIM card as well. D720 operates on Symbian 7.0 series 60...and frankly it's a bit slow to open menus and all.
Connectivity: 6280 has GPRS, 3G and EDGE but its not symbian so Opera mini doesnt work. D720 only GPRS. if you are planning to use internet 6280 will be much faster. or if you are in a country where 3g works then you can go for 3G video calling, but the battery life will be low.
Camera: 6280 has two camera, 2mp on the back (Nokia 2m is pretty much same in quality as other 1.3mp cam), VGA camera in front for video. It recors in 640x480 VGA quality video but frame rate is low.I heard it recors .3gp as well as mp4.
D720 has only one cam 1.3mp. It can record video in max 352x288, frame rate is low too...quality not great.and it only recorsd .3gp. but plays mp4.
Extras: 6280 has visual radio that D720 doesn't.
6280 has push to talk..(just incase your network provider supports that)
So if you are looking for more features and willing to pay some extra bucks (check plemix) then you can go for 6280. Read the review in this site.
I bought D720 coz all this shortfall in features are simply overpowered by its look...and I love it.
Mine last for one and a half day with average use (say a little more than 1 hour talk time, few sms and couple of mp3 songs and videos). I don't charge it every night.
This site says talktime is 4 hr and standby 170hr.Which is same as the D720s from philipines site. The European site says talktime 6.5 hr and standby 200hrs. I dont know whats the deal. Its confusing.
D720 has two versions.
but the reason i can't connect my phone is becoz i haven't install the driver.. :)
hey wana ask u again..
what's the battery life of your fone??
pls answer this
otherwise i would claim.. becoz of the su**s battery life...
I had the same issue with T-mobile USA and talked to a CSR for over an hour, no luck. Finally I solved the problem.
Go to Nokia site and order MMS settings for T-mobile UK. Select model 6670/7610, type ur phone number. D720 uses exact same settings as of Nokia 6670 and 7610. You will get the settings in SMS. Punch in the code from the site. And that's it. Mine is working fine now.
Does any1 know where 2 get settings 4 mms pic messageing ect Tmobile dont have them be cause the phones not out in uk yet have also bin in touch with samsung customer service as well no luck there though they aint got them either an its there phone
Try installing the driver that comes with the CD first. then click "Get Connected" from PC Suite, windows will do some search and install the rest...and you will be connected in about 3-4 minutes. From next time onwards it wont take that long.
Hope this helps.
can anyone tell me how to use the cable data??
i can't connect it with my pc even though i have clicked 'get connected' button on pc suite...
the option is not there...
can anyone solve this....
what is the real batery life for this phone?
cos mine is only about 20 hours!!
with medium use.. (few call, sms, photo, & few minutes mp3 player)
it really su**s.....
i hav to charge it every night...
does this also happen to you guys??
Had this phone for a month now. Good things about the phone are the specs that Samsung gives you. Bad things are how these specs turn out to (mal)function.
The camera simply sucks, photo as well as video. Video is in extremely poor quality with a bad framerate. Taking photos has a major delay on releasing the button and actually shooting the picture, however the quality of the pictures is ok, tho often a lot of blur due to the delay (ofcourse especially when taking photos of moving things).
The phone in general is really slow. Opening contacts or writing a new message takes a couple of seconds, same with the menu.
Altho this phones does offer the features it should offer, they just don't function the way they should be functioning.
I'm seriously thinking about selling mine and buying another phone. I've used 2 Samsung phones before (A800 and E630) and altho they had less features, at least their performance was way better.
Does anyone know if this phone records and playback MPEG4 video as the specification says? Whats file extension it supports other than .3gp?
I couldnt figured it out yet. Plz post.
Thanks MCX. That solves the problem.
Can't post pictures here.Else could have posted one taken by the phone. It looks ok for a 1.3mp camera phone.
have the solution for those who feel that the slider is goin down when u push the joystick downward....
just push the slider more upward until u feel the slider is 'locked'
Yehoooo!!! I finally restored my phone back to original settings. Incase anyone one messed up their settings, let me know.It uses the same code as Nokias series 60. Cheers!!
