d, in order to use full capacity of the battery you will need to charge/discharge it at least 3 times. Mine works at least 4 days on standby, but in two weeks i only charged it twice, so cannot judge just yet, samsung claims to have 6.5 hours of talk time and i think they may be right. Also, reduce the brightness that what kills any phone.
For those people who want to know usual question and quite lazy to read all comments here the list of features included:
+mp3 as ringtone
+video Id and Photo Id for caller
+ring and vibrate
+use mp3 player in background mode
+Living World - great feature
+sliding can accept/end calls
+possible to view images full screen
+record video up to 352x288 resolution
-no mp3 for sms
-no automatic saving for sent messages
-no ability to run java in background
does this phone let you use your mp3's as ringtones? or does the software allow me to edit my mp3's and turn them into ringtones? can i create mp3 text message tones?
I just got the D900 phone in the last few days. Now I have always had Nokia's for a long time and my last was the 6230 a very reliable phone. For my upgrade I first recieved the SE K610i (red version) which I must say has a great design, is slim and feels good in your hand. However, there are some fundamental problems that I found with the SE operating system. First when you get in the call log you can't see the number of the contact and there is no time for when the call was recieved/made/missed. Second to exit any part of the menu/ software available on the phone, one has to press the 'return button'! Very frustrating when wanting to make a call straight away. So overall a thumbs down for the K610i and I sent it back!
The D900 on the otherhand has lots of great features. The design is beautiful, there are no open holes at the top or bottom for dust to get into (except the mike and speaker). The screen and colours are superb! and for those of you that like games you even get sega games like sonic and tetris but they look exactly like they did on the old hand helds, amazing! The user menu is excellent, watch out Nokia!
The camera on this phone isn't bad, has the usual lags like the majority of these camera phones; great camera interface and short cut buttons and cool fun features such as frames, 8 or so effects and flash (although not very strong). It does have some problems as well such as when creating your contacts you can add there birth date to their details, however, this does not seem to copy to the calendar. Can anyone help me with this??
And yes finally I must say the battery life is pretty terrible and last maybe a day and half with little use but extensive usage of the camera and features with suck the battery dry much faster! I shall not be sending this phone back tho, it's simply irresistable...so i guess naturally my next question would be does anyone know where I can get a spare battery for this phone??
i hafta agree tat the manual isnt tat fantastic.. anyway, if u slide down ur phone & adjust the volume key by the side of the phone, u'll b able to adjust the keypad tone.. dun hafta trouble urself wif changing the theme to font... ^^
does any1 haf any problems wif the phone while usin it wif a bluetooth headset? the phone cant seem 2 locate my headset even everything's paired & on..
KoureasG, i don't know what you are talking about, the battery life is better then my nokia 6630, yes it is lacking some of the functionality but i don't see a reason to wait for 3G phone as i am not sure if something will change.
besides, in order to low the key tones all you need is to decrese volume at standby (use the side buttons).
Does the D900 has the ring & vibrate mode at the same time as an option??
D900 is a phone of luster and misery.
Great design and style,nice graphic design menu but unfortunately lacks many basic functions and battery life,voice clarity and bell is below than D600.
If you want a phone with the same design and style but with 3G,150 mb storage,vga video, save your money and wait for the next 3d generation "ultra" 13.5mm "joy" edition which is expected the first days of December.
If you want to turn off the keypad tone here is a tip:
If you go to "Dialing Display" and change from theme to font you will be allowed to acess the currently "greyed out" keytone menu item.
* HOW TO TURN OFF KEYPAD TONES *
You go to settings
go to display settings
go to dialling display
change change font type from Theme to Normal (you will see all fonts now unlocked)
Save the setting to normal
go to settings again
go to sound settings
Keypad Tone is now unlocked
you will see options for : off, DTMF, Beep, Xylophone and simple
Choose Off and save
My comment on reliability is general on Samsung phones and i think D900 has got most of the things that fits the criteria. There are downfalls but that applies to every phone.
However,as i said before is better than K 800 and N73 in particular which has software problems. I don't think anyone would be happy settling with an 18 month contract and knowing the phone they have is not reliabile,( software etc....).
Had the D900 one week, battery life is poor, camera is terrible in doors against my K750. User guide is poor. Several people have complained about not being able to turn off keypad beeps, this is because the theme (One only) is active, not so easy to spot in the user guide. Called Tech support to find out about themes - they had no idea how to create/download more. Please don't get me wrong, the phone is very thin and nice to use but its annoying little things like lack of accessories - like desk and car craddles/charges - charge connector is on the side - very illogical. No in ear headphones without using a specail adapter. I may be biased due to having owned many SonyEriccson phones. 6/10
Not being funny, but how can you say "D900 has got everything and best for its reliability" How can you comment on a things reliability when you have only had it for a short time?
That's like buying a brand new car, having it a week and saying that it's the most reliable car that I have ever owned!
whats better the d900 or the e900 I would say the design of the e900 is better. How
Just got D900. I have the same problem of keypad section which is greyed out, means is not active. Has anyone got any idea how to work this out. Cheers.
It is a superb phone. Have used Nokia N73, SE K800, Samsung E900 but D900 has got everything and best for its reliability.
Its ok i figured it out,
anyone know where i can download some new themes?
""""Quote: "hey guys.got my d900.. its wonderful..i love it...but then..is there a way to change the "keypad tone"? cuz i tried...but thne..its greyed out...someone
know about this problem?"
I thinks it because of which Dialling settings you have, have you got the normal setting on or the one where it writes it with the pen?
change it to the normal one, i think lol"""""
How do you do that? ive tried everything and i cant find it??
is the pictures on the D900 better than the SE K800 if yes are they alot better
Got mine from HK,paid Usd420.00,very cool phone,look at what the phone's offered for such a small $$$,don't expect too much from it,buy it if you happy with what it offers,the D900 gives me more than enough,personally I like it better than the K800,SE never changed their designs./.
