the card reader is a bit slow, but you can play music just fine, so the only way it slows you down is when you try to scan through pictures saved on the card or perform file operations with them (move, delete, etc). For music it's great. The proprietary ear buds are junk though, so maybe invest in some decent stereo bluetooth headphones.
rio, 08 Nov 2008Hi guys! got this black beauty(samE590)for a week now and it's really great! It excites me eve... moreHello, rio.
I'm just asking, is it really true that the memory card reading ability of this phone is slow? And can you play music saved straight from the memory card?
Thanks if you will answer...
yes, what about its sound?
and number of hours will it take to drain the battery when using the phone's mp3 player?
Anonymous, 04 Nov 2008I'm using a 2GB microSD card at the moment which I think is the biggest you can use with this phone. I am using 1 gb card but my phone is slow while opening pictures on memory card .can u help me?
Hi guys! got this black beauty(samE590)for a week now and it's really great! It excites me everytime i use it! i like its very small and humble appearance but packed with great capabilities specialy the camera... but in daytime only hehe, ofcourse no flash. However, im here to share some problems with it.
If you have a problem of disabled KEYPAD TONE, ADVANCED SHORTCUT, & CALENDAR, try changing your wallpaper to normal and your dialling display to normal. If you're already using normal, try switching to theme and then go back to normal again.
I bought my E590 here in the Phillipines that includes stereo headset & USB cable, no memory card.
Mine can store only 200 messages in the phone while the review here says that it can store of up to 1000 messages in the phone.
Mine can only use one image as a wallpaper or background while the review says it can use two alternating images as a wallpaper or background. Does anybody here has something to say about this? It will be much appreciated...
my sister just bought a sgh-e590.we inserted a micro sd 256mb in the phone but when we click on the memory card it says "not allowed".i am hoping for your quick response.....tnx......
great phone. got 3mp cam, low budget phone, can vivid message to other samsung phone, and much more with this phone.. i love it but it have no 3G --
arun, 30 Oct 2008good phone .... upto how much gb memory can be expanded? I'm using a 2GB microSD card at the moment which I think is the biggest you can use with this phone.
The greatest thing about this this phone is its cool and simple design.
But there are some problematic issues too.
The interenet, although the edge and everything, I can get only to my gmail.com page. No way with yahoo.com, unfortunately.
And buttons react slow. Like, you push for one function, and the phone then waits and thinks ... and waits. Even with lock/unlock keys option. It was so much faster with my old Siemens A50.
And then to send an sms - how many times you have to make different choices to actually get the message sent? Ten?
Even with very primitive old models the functions were more convenient and easy to use.
I'm even expecting that this phone will start asking me before every turn - "really?", "really, really?", "are you sure?", "why don't you instead think of this?", " really?" ...
Gets annoying, but there are problems with all phones, even iPhone which is like best of the show.

I've installed Opera Mini but it won't work with EDGE, only GPRS. Is there anyone whose Opera uses EDGE?
i guess this very-very valuable phone. good camera, good design, good price. must buy
You can play music files from your memory card. I own this phone and I've been doing that for the longest time now.
i have been using this fon sins lat week...no problem at all..honestly, i haven't encountered the problems being stated hir regarding the transferring of files,cause i bought it without the memory card,iam jz planning to buy a card for it this week...but the fact that jasper morison designed it..waaahhh....crazy great...i am fascinated with the panorama shot..nice camera and video too...i agree that the only problem is that it doesnt allow evry user to customize their sms tone,but its ok still...one more great thing bout this fon is,if u jz stare at its front area,u wouldnt notice the extravagant camera at the back..at first, i thought it was an ordinary old skul fon,but it wasnt...huge camera...so simple yet heavy....immana give my hol vote to samsung for this great gadget...
