you can press the volume control button (up/down, try either one) on the side of the phone while the camera mode is on, then the display will flip back to normal, as you wish

Thanks for the reply Arvin, right now I'm really torn between the SE K790 and the Samsung D900. My main concern is MP3 functionality. I read both the reviews posted here and they both seem to have good feedback. I'm just a little lost I guess.
I have this phone for week now, previous phones was SonyEric K750, SonyEric P990 before them Nokia-s top models.
Pros- desing, menu (similar to Nokia syst), weight, size, screens, graphics, easy using and nice sized letters
Not so pro (for me)-
1. limit 300kb for e-mail dowloading> biggest problem is when e-mail is over 300kb phone rejects it all- right was be download e-mail text without attachments
2. photocamera is not so good as it was on K750, camera is not very fast (opens slowly), picture quality is not so clear and sharp - I tryed with different settings and K750 is still more better,
3. you can't use normally downloaded photos or files>only photos taken with camera can be directly zoomed, resized and used for backround pictures.
I'm using it on "full" settings (no energy savings) and it lasts 1-2 working days.
I recommend D900 if you using your phone for calling, messaging (small e-mails) and you need slim phone what will not look suite pockets like DD-sized silicons,
if you need to make photos then there is better phone/cameras on the market.
I have not yet experience how strong this phone is if it will drop several times ...
Have someone droped it alredy heavly ?
Thanks for replying Laura.
I'm glad it does as I was beginning to worry lol. And that setting to save battery time sounds great :)
*puts D900 on Xmas list* :D
hi does anyone know how to make pictures downloaded from the internet bigger on this phone i bought images from a website and they are tiny does anyone know how to make them full screen thanks
yeah, they do.
its also got a setting so u can have the lights not to come on during the daytime when u dont need em, saves battery y'see =]
hope this helps!!
This may seem a stupid question but does the D900's numbers on the keypad light up in the dark?
i need help. i did that online setup for the wap. but wheni try to open the browser it says "error:network unavailable." what do i do???
what a great phone. my friend has this phone and im actually considering leaving motorola to get this. and considering ive had a moto phone for the last 12 years thats saying something. well done samsung
I bought my d900 yesterday its the perfect phone for all who dont want to wear more then 100 g in their pockets :P perfect style , menu , battery , the only problem is that i dont know where to find some software for personalization of the phone.pls tell me any good site for java applications or programs
how much different opinions about D900 ??
one says it's "rubbish" & one says it's "the best"
one says it's camera is "rubbish" & one says "excellent" !!!
i wanna buy it but i can't decide cause of this differences..
although i heard it can't show images in fullscreen and zoom_in
to all the people who are saying the battery life for this phone is poor, its your own fault. i have this phone and the battery is fine. i listen to the mp3 player to and from work, i spend about an hour a day on a call and send loads of texts and the battery lasts all day.
the reason i said that its your own fault is that the initial charge is the most important thing. if you interupt the charge or dont give the full charge first time round then the battery will only charge uptil the point that you first charged. it other words youve already ruined you battery!!
if you do listen to the manual and be patient and give the battery a full charge first time round then the battery life will be of no problem to you!!!
I've had this phone for 1 month now and this is the 3rd one i'm on as they've all had problems, the main problem with all of them is trying to write a text msg and the letters dont appear when I press the keys, has anyone else had this problem? it's driving me up the wall, I fell like selling it and getting an old faitful Nokia. My opionion - this has to be the worst phone I've ever come across, I'll never buy another Samsung as long as I live. The camera is rubbish and you can't take a decent picture, the key menu is shaded out (why put it in?)and the battery life is abso apaulling, STAY AWAY FROM THIS HEAP OF RUBBISH!!!!! DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!
in my experience with regular use (sending messages, calling, etc.), I was able to use it as an MP3 player (using headphones not the loadspeaker) for around 3 hrs and it only lost 1 bae from the battery indicator.
pretty good if you asked me...
Hey, I'm planning to get this phone. My only concern is I also plan to use this as an mp3 player and I don't know if the battery life is any good? Anyone have any experience using the phone as their dedicated mp3 player as opposed to their ipod or something? Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.
well, ive had this phone for a few months now, and not had any problems...so far.
It's slim, stylish, and light, and has everything you need on a phone. The only small criticism i have, is that the earphones are too big and bulky, and don't fit properly in my ears. i could just have small ears, but since i have an mp3 player, it's not a great deal!
i would highly reccomend this phone if you want a great camera, all the usual phone stuff, and a fantastic looking handset.
Had this D900 for a month now and it's been great.
Used a 1GB SANDISK microSD card without any problems.
For faster taking of picsm turn of the auto focus, it works fine at objects around 1 ft to 1 meter distances.
Use autofocus for taking close ups (Max 10cm close up)
Best Camera settings i found so far is ISO Auto, White balance Auto, Spot exposure metering, Night scene program
Battery Life is average with heavy use of MP3 player, a few cam shots, some video, some games and lots of sending messages and calling. (it'll last you the whole day through) if on standby it'll probably last at least 48~72 hours (i'm a heavy user so i charge daily)
PC suite is great as I an manage the files and contacts on my phone directly, I can even send messages by using my keyboard.
Transferring of files from PC to phone is flawless, using both Mass storage mode and via PC suite (Directly to phone memory)
I can't understand why other people has so many gripes, maybe you get your phones from sub standard sellers that's why you suffer so much.
Oh well that's what the warranties are for, if you don't like it return it, but for me, one of the best phones i've used so far.
If you buy this phone, you will regret it. Much better off with something half the price. Avoid, avoid, avoid. This phone is not worth the price of a text. I have swapped the sim back into my older but far superior sony ericsson so I can make more than one phone call and still have battery left. This phone is the worst electronic item I have ever owned.
