found this review from a polohead at mobiledia...i hope it helps..
I’ve had this phone for a month now, prior to this I was a faithful to Nokia who always gave intuitive menus in a nice compact design. I gave into the Samsung because I wanted the camera and I liked the look of the flip phone which I’d never had with Nokia. I do like this phone in many respects but I was disappointed by the huge square shape of the phone and the pathetic battery life icon_cry.gif . I have to charge my phone every other day which is ridiculous.
Despite my initial shock I persevered as I still had another 11 months on my contract with T-mobile. I was pleased with the camera – very handy when out with the mates, but very annoying that the phone doesn’t let you download via the cable only through email (which costs). The colour screen is amazing, really vibrant, but the screen savers are rubbish – if they were smooth running they’d be really cool (I guess this is down to battery life).The polyphonic ring tones are also good, but it took me a week to get over the fact you couldn’t have vibrate and melody on at the same time unless you downloaded a specific vibrate-ringtone! icon_surprised.gif Madness!
In general - this is a chunky phone that doesn’t look as ‘cool’ as I had hoped, but that aside it has a wicked screen and funky camera.
to diana...here in the philippines we have a blue one...you'll love it in blue..
Another thing, the video recording,, indoor video recording like in the restaurant,, cafes,, is bad or poor,,, your recording like a shadow,, maybe because,, it darkens when you shift it to video recording.
is it True guys? pls comment E530 users.
I'm quite disapointed with the samsung e530 camera megapixel... whether indoor or outdoor, the picture taken is always a bit snowy! useless using the megapixel settings even it is set at super fine.
How about you all e530 users? same ewxperience or results?
the new samsung is great...i love it..i'm crazy about it...it's unique...:P
it has no faults...basically it's perfect, for girls especially.
the colour is wonderful (i have the pink one) and i've also heard that there are blue, orange and silver models.
i'm more than happy with it!
To everyone enquiring about how to put MP3's onto the phone, I would suggest buying a bluetooth dongle. I bought a cheap one off ebay, & it came with a cd with tons of MP3's on. You've just gotta drag & drop then!
Sparkles - You would plug the usb cable into the charging point at the base of the phone.
N1XXX1 - There are no bad points to this phone! Its fantastic! The only downfall I can possibly think off is that you cant link the camera to one of shortcut positions. You can only access it through the main menu, or through the push button on the side of the phone. I LOVE THIS PHONE!!!!
weel, i love it!!!
but, i stay very, very happy, if samsung make one in color blue!! i love this color and no like of pink!!
please make one blue for me!!!
thank you //
