Guys I think this phone is amazing! It has amazing graphics!! i've seen it.
Plzz i need to know if its camera has a FLASH!!!!
the camera of this phone has no flash. go to samsung's website to check out the offical specs. also, the battery of this phone sucks.
hey i dont understand why i cant transfer files especially images from pc to phone. it would say file not supported. how come i have transferred mp3 from my pc to phone? and why cant images be transferred? really having a hard time. pls help me
I saw this Phone in Malaysia recently. Beautiful and elegent, But look at it it is trying to be like Motorola V3, V3i. I think it is a copy cat. Keyboard in good for ladies only. Screen is great, Camera is berilliant but it just does not have the style of V3i. some how I take it as Lexus trying to be Mercedes Benz S Class.. Overal It is a great item but lacks the branding and also style.
the fliping keys needs to be smashed with a hammer to just select things i hate it it the worst phone i have ever used
I got it today and its a nice/slim phone. I can recomend it to all clamshell lovers. It looks a little toyish after using v3, but its lighter and slimmer than that. Yes the heavy sms users will be bugged by the keypad, othervise its a 9/10 star phone.
The missing star is a quetion for me, which is: The external do not show time/date constantly (not always, just after a few sec or minute u close the lid) is there a fix or i have to open the lid to see the time/date everytime???
After reading all the comments, I really changed my mind about it, eventhough, i really liked the way it felt in my hand, and loved the way the phone looks, but hey i have D600, so I guess i'll hold on to it for now, if it wasn't of the comments i read, i would have prolly got it by now, sorry samsung, still love ya though :)
hey i just bought this fone 2days ago. well im not surprised about the keypads and all the negative side, cz i know every phone has its ugly side. anyhow i like its sleek design and the graphics. but wen i take pictures, i wonder why it wouldnt capture the perfect moment. it seems blurry or i dont know maybe its my hand. but then i love the unit sooo sleek and it has a dramatic effect if you use it. i know every company wouldnt make a perfect unit, its their strategy cz if they do, ppl wont change fones anymore! hehe.
hey sarah! tnx for the review. i was thinking of buying this phone thinking that samsung might have improve their features. but i think i was wrong. i am also a former nokia user who switched to samsung coz of the design and great tft screen. if you did not mention the model number, i would have thought that you are talking about all samsung phones in general coz i also have exact complaint about my samsung phone and to think this is an old model, that means samsung don't seems to listen to other people's commnent. it seems i will just have to wait for nokia's n75 for my next phone. hope it does will not cost me an arm and a leg.
its size is bigger than average phones, and it becomes too tall when opened. but i like the red colour for this phone.
Just bought this phone two days ago. Comments so far: 1) Steady built, body is solid and no plasticky feeling 2)Ringing tone & volume is loud and clear, conversation is clear with no noise 3)Display is excellent 4)Battery life a bit short. But kinda expected with such a slim battery..
The design of this phone is great, it looks fantastic and the fact that its only 9.9mm thick is really impressive. However, i have just started using one and im struggling. Part of this could be that i have always been a fan of nokias and their styling and menus. This phone is most definitely NOT for anyone that sends text messages frequently. In my opinion it isn't as diverse as the nokia 6230i, when you compare the two handsets their features look similar but the nokia has a lot of nicer little extras, like changing the phones colour theme (the samsung only offers black or white). The samsungs text messaging font is huge on the smallest setting, something which i personally hate. When you dial a number the digits are so big that a basic phone number doesnt fit on one line - it looks sloppy. The keytones are loud, childish and irritating. More importantly for me, the ringing volume for an incoming call is dire. On full volume (level 7) I can barely hear the phone when it's in my pocket. Should you wish to upload your own mp3 ringtone the sound is even quieter, I've missed three phonecalls because of it today already. The 2 megapixel camera has complicated settings, and is practically incapable of taking a good picture indoors in artificial lighting. It is extrmely difficult to get it to take a clear picture, the slightest little movement and the image is ruined. It is also very slow to open and browse through images. The keypad takes a lot of effort to use, you have to concentrate hard on what youre pressing and how hard youre pressing it because the keys don't click, theyre touchpad style. This is a nice idea in theory but its extremely impractical when youre trying to dial a phone number quickly and it ends up entering the same number 3 times because youve pressed the key a little too hard. You cant alter the sensitivity. The screen is great, the graphics are good, the music player is nice and the video recorder is also of a high quality. As far as i am concerned samsung have created a professional looking phone with extremely bulky and childish features, if you are someone that relies on your phone for all day every day use i strongly suggest you look for something else. Sorry samsung!
The font size feature you are referring to, ONLY changes the size of dialed numbers. Menu fonts remain way too large, and ugly as ever.
Only 3 contacts can be viewed at a time.
Many menu items cant even fit on the screen, and have to scroll by slowly... but, before you get to the end of the line, the screen switches off! Theis phone's software is still very rough around the edges.
I am looking to buy this phone... but does the fact that is does not have an external display it that a bother or annoying espeially when u want to see who is calling??
I have tried to plug-in TV-out cable from P850, Tv-out cable from E900 to TV/DVD/amplifier, it can give high quality hi-fi sound as well as high quality picture ( full screeen for mpeg 4 file with resolution 240 X 320 ), I am sure this phone can give the same output performance as the two phones
As far as I know, this phone did not have a bult-in flash, and this phone cannot vibrate and ring at the same time.
Keypad is also one of the concern due to the slimless design of the phone. Those heavy sending SMS is not recommended.
However, the size of dial number can be changed to different size as the menu is the same as E900
