Also, does the D900i show similar problems?
Since it was released later, has the screen problem been fixed in the D900i?
Please feel free to mail...
My friend just picked up one of these babies last week. The phone's really sleek; love the design. However I read a lot of negative reviews for this model. Problems mainly being:
1. FRAGILE SCREEN - I've come across lots of users complaining about the screen cracking for no fault of theirs and that the warranty doesn't cover this.
2. LOW BATTERY BACKUP - Some people say that the battery doesn't even last for a day when they've spoken on the phone for about an hour, listened to 30 minutes of music and clicked just about 6 pics.
Are these claims true? Please let me know cos I'm planning to buy one, but if the phone is really this flawed (I mean the screen), I'd rather go for a nokia or SE.
Also, any similar problems with Samsung D840?
Please feel free to mail me...
Thanks brother Rajesh for taking the time to explain things. You are indeed really kind. I am in a predicament. I am thinking of selling my D900 and getting the Nokia N73 or SonyEricsson K850i because of the blurring effect of the D900. Do you think I will face the same problems with the SE and Nokia? I did read a few user opinions and some say the SE too has the same problem, ie you need to wait until the shiutter clicks before moving your hand.
I need a phone camera to get instant and candid shots of my newly born baby (who moves a lot!)
Rajesh, would appreciate your advice whether I should sell it and buy either the N73 or K810i or am I just jumping from the pot to the fire?
One more audio clip - 3D SOUND DEMO - is added in D900 GUIDE. The link to audio clip is given below. Listen through headset. Turn on the '3D sound' option in musicplayer settings. Don't use maximum volume initially.
Rajan, It is normal. Though it is a competent 3MP camera considering the picture quality, it is not the best in the world. It is not at all good at capturing moving objects. But in auto focus mode, slight hand movements will not affect.
The 3-4 seconds delay, I think, is usual in autofocus mode(you can see that there is no delay in pan focus mode). In other phone cameras, it focuses on first press, shoots on the next. So the delay is not so felt. The D900 camera shoots immediately after focussing, so one get the feeling of much delay. you can withdraw the camera on hearing the shutter sound, there after hand movement won't affect.
I always feel that the sensitivity to hand movement increases with photo size. I wonder others feel this too? So unless I want large prints or so, I keep the photo size small as 800x600 or 1024x768.
Anyone can help. I bought this phone specifically for the camera but I am disappointed with its speed. Whenever I take a moving object, I get ghosting effect. In addition, if I take a still subject, I have to wait like 5 to 6 seconds, otherwise if I move, the is again ghosting. Is this normal? MR Rajesh, you are the expert, pls do help too
I bought the D900 lately.
Is it possible to install new fonts? I mean new languages...
For instance, I get a lot of Hebrew texts, but get them as squares since the phone doesn't recognize the characters. Can I install the characters so it will be possible to recognize the letters at least if not to write back in hebrew?
hey i was thinking about getting this phone but i heard it is easily cracked. is this true? thanks for your help
Dirk, Yes. Mobile Gmaps is working well in my phone. I had made a detailed reply to kevin earlier. Please search with keyword 'gmaps'.
I have no bluetooth reciever. (The phone has no inbuilt one too.) After using, write your opinion.
Is there some GPS software for this phone? I have an external bluetooth GPS .

Amir Haral, I must say sorry for spelling your name wrongly - Rajesh
AMIR HIRAL; No theme download. But you can try menu background. Display settings..wallpaper..select 'normal'. select menu back ground and set a lower transparency level, say 30%.
AMIR HARAL; Try this. Create name card(menu-2-6). Send via text message to your own number. On recieving, view and from options select 'ATTACHED ITEMS'. Save and check it in the contact list.
To Rajesh, the D900 Guru :-)
Rajesh, I have an external GPS bluetooth unit that communicates well with my Palm Tungsten running Tom Tom 5.
Is there GPS software for the D900?
It would be nice to eliminate my Palm. I don't look at the maps so small display is not important. Tom Tom guides via voice which I use ......works great in Palm but was hoping I could find maps to work with D900.
Any tips would be appreciated.
