The phone actually comes with 80mb onboard memory, with 10mb used for the default stuff, so you have 70mb to yourself =D. Just got the phone 3 days ago and i'm loving it.
Just make sure the battery is properly charged - that is when the battery symbol is a solid block without any of it flashing.
Also, you CAN synchronise this thing with Outlook, etc.
AND, for those wanting to put a 2GB micro SD inside of this thing you are unfortunately sh*t outta luck - the maximum card that the D900 recognises is 512mb.
Perhaps im taking photos in the wrong way, but trying with different ISO/focus/exposure, NONE of my photos came out 100% sharp - all were to some extent blurry.
Just my argument again though - if you want decent photos, DONT rely on a mobile cos thats retarded. Buy a decent digicam instead..
ALSO, that link to the official D900 is dodge. There is some glaring mistakes on it which makes me think the talk time of 6.5 hours is a bit suspect.
They claim the phone has 70mb of onboard mem - it only has 60mb. This along with the serious spelling and grammer mistakes (it's a 'professional' company!), make me think they may have f*cked up with the specs as well. 6.5 hours talk time does seem a bit generous..
And yes, you can only record a maximum of an hours video if it bothers you that much (geeks). A better idea might be something called a digital camcorder. Ever heard of one of them before??
official samsung website quotes talk time as 6.5 hours (ura!)
Ok!Thanks a lot:)now I'll surely buy Samsung, the only problem that it's not in stock in Russia yet!so I gotta wait!Anyways...thanks to all people, who made these great reviews and helped to make decision!
There is no heavy arguement for Samsung.
But there is a heavy arguement against Motorola: Not once have they ever produced a decent phone, the software of which is atrocious, and they always break down. The designs are also boring.
I hope that helps.
Hey, guys!I like this phone just A LOT!Can't wait until I can buy it!But there is also coming a new Motorola slider (RIZR)!I'm a bit in doubt which i should buy!I know Samsung has a better camera, but in Motorola there is a radio and it is a bit more narrow!(46 against 51)!Can please anybody tell me the heavy arguments for Samsung!
Why should the 13.5mm be better? The only differences with the D900 seems to be the 3G video telephony function and a bit more memory.
I think I'll go for the D900, as it is thinner and has a 3mp camera too.
I am reading the opinions posted by leef and peoples answers to it and no-one is giving a big difference between the d6 & d9. I am interested in this phone as-wel but if there is only 3 main differences i cant see why i should spend my money on one. i had a d5 and because there are so many differences with the d6 i got it, speaker quality, mmc slot, camera, shape, xtra features in the menus, if one of the main differences with the d9 is the memory why shouldnt i just get a couple of 1g memory cards and save myself a couple of hundred pounds?
you have a valid point that the camera is protected when the phone is closed but it seems you are very easy pleased, If thats all the upgrades available to the d900 aswell as downgrades such as the amount of memory that it holds on the phone then it probably would be a good idea to wait to the next one up is released.
I will wait for the next "Ultra edition 13.5":
Now..that's a REAL UPGRADE from D600.
I have the d600 and one of the things I hate about it is if your ending a cakk an someone is calling in at the same time it will drop the new call first. Is the same true with the d900 is this a samsung issue? Also the bluetooth connects very slow on the d600 is this a problem with the d900 as well
Those who are debating about the Ultra series 3G Z620:
Even though its not confirmed, looking at the pictures (http://www.slashphone.com/102/4934.html)it seems that Z620 has a rotating camera which can be used for 3G video calls. I dont think Samsung would be dumb enough (like what Nokia did with N91) to release a 3G phone without a front cam .LOL
Could anyone tell me if you can turn the operator logo off if so could you tell me how to do it,thankyou
I've had my D900 for a couple of days now. The killer app is the camera. With autofocus selected (not setup when shipped from the factory - doh!) you don't miss focus. Even macro-type close-ups. Sure, you're not going to blow up a 3megp picture up to A3, but 6x4 prints look good. Video is useful too - CIF format a leap forward.
There is something a bit dodge about that new 13.5mm 'ultra' phone - if it is 3G, wheres the front camera for video calls??
I've already waited three months for a phone decent enought to justify going out and getting a new contract. The D900 was it.
Even if i knew about the "Ultra 13.5", there was no way i was waiting another 6 months, even if it is on 3G (and so is clearly going to be on a good contract, cos 2G contracts are a f*ckin rip off).
Hey, dont u guys think is better to wait until december until the new ultra edition comes out? it supports 3G and 150 mb on top of microSD.
Hope this is true!!!
Also ! The camera lens on the D900 is protected when the handset is closed, unlike the d600 !
