This phone is ok. The quality of the pictures are remarkable. It's just a bit useless at night because there is no flash. But when the lighting is proper, pictures turn out alright. I find the music player good as well, it's like as if you have a music phone.
Having had the phone for a bit, I see the pros and cons mostly being determined by who is using the phone, not by the phone itself. the problem with these review sites are that you usually don't have the same use patterns as the reviewer, so you don't know who to trust. Here's me:
Use: camera, some music, memory card, calendar, sync, texting, mms, email.
I found the phone to be great in design with an awesome, compact structure. the screen is big enough and the keypad uses rounded keys so you know which your finger is on. The phone is solid and small. like really small, which does sometimes create a problem when you are trying to type with two hands or fiddle with that horrible clittermouse controller.
Pros: signal, screen, FM radio, good MP3 player, Stereo BT, simplicity, camera MPs.
Cons: My camera takes crap photos (maybe not every one of these does), stick controller, too many buttons to push to text msg. MP3 player limited to 20 songs per playlist or something. Buttons don't make sense. Bean Bag stand horrible. Proprietary headset and charger, no miniUSB. A new OS upgrade could fix most of these though.
Good for people who don't mind not having advanced features and want a slick looking tiny phone with a good camera. check out flickr photos to see the quality. http://www.flickr.com/photos/smiletron/3121811125/
beatrixe, 05 Apr 2009hi,im beatrixe frm indonesia guyz,pliz answer my quest -does samsung juz can store 30 songs?... morefor samsung e590: you cannot change the preset message tones, you cannot download themes, night camera is ok but macro shots may be not. for mp3, you are allowed to create 4 playlists with only 30 songs per list.so a total of 120 songs in all. When it comes to video, you are limited to 15 min.But overall, it is a good phone.

The browser functionality of my E590 doesn't work either I use Smart sim or SunCel. The configuration are in default and seems correct which came from the cellphone shop. Do you have GPRS settings for Smart or Suncel network? Really appreciate your help.. thanks!
Im buying this phone! 3.2 mp cam with expandable memory at a price of 4100 php- i saw it at a mall in philippines. my goodness this is so cheap im buying it next week.
I'm really surprised coz it dropped strongly several times but its running as well as b4 very well....n music quality not only excellent but also mind blowing.
Can anybody give me a WAP website where I can download free SGH E590 games? Thanks! :D
JM, 23 Mar 2009i dropped my phone on water... it got about 6 inches below the surface before i got it out...... moreMe too. I dropped it into the toilet bowl with piss on it 4 months ago. I just let it dry for a day and its still working. Now the joy stick is not moving anymore so I sent it for repair and still waiting for it. I love this phone, specially it's aesthetics, very simple and elegant. So I'm not gonna buy a new phone yet because I like this one. I just hope the joy stick wouldn't go wrong again.
