Just like the Nokia 6300, the E590 is a great solid package that provides simplicity and very good value given its feature set and unique design. Currently this device can be bought very reasonably in the UK. Highly recommended for those who want a device to make calls, text, take the occasional snap, and listen from time to time to music. This should be ideal to a wide range of users. If Samsung release a successor to this with HSDPA and an HTMP browser this would sell by the truckload.

I really got attracted to this unit because of the it's simplicity and size. I have the same problem with that of Josh, mine is not only the keypad tone and advanced shortcuts but also the calendar all in the settings menu. I don't know what is the problem. My question is is it better to download the pc studio to transfer files or just use the bluetooth technology. I tried using the latter in transfering files like and image and a music file of david archuleta and it worked. However I would like to try transfering files from pc to phone but somewhat apprehensive to encounter some glitches or problems coz' I'm not a techie person. Any reply would be very much appreciated.
Hi, I'm using this phone now. I saw it last week and I got really attracted to the simple design yet somewhat jam-packed features. And so far, it hasn't brought me down yet. The music player's sound is crisp, and you can even opt for a 3D quality sound by tinkering on the settings. Also, the 3.0 megapixel camera is really something! Of course, I would be happier if it had flash options or something, but it really is no big deal. The bean bag is really cute, and is also functional as a tripod for taking shots wherein YOU should be included. I haven't been using it for that long, though, I'm not sure yet whether the battery is durable, and I'll have to look further into the manual because I can't figure out how to disable the auto-phone lock 'cause it's kinda annoying. A bit helpful, though, for when I put it in my bag, no extra keys will be dialed and stuff.
when u listen mp3 player, massage will alert by Vibration.
how ever, this is not music phone.
it only have 4 play list and each play list could handle (only) 30 files.
(well... i don't want to hear mp3 for more than 2hour, it's not good for my ear. So, it's no problem for me with the play list).
I don't know how long (exactly) battery could handle music player.
I've been try to watch Movie (mp4) "28 weeks after" (using head set and Bluetooth Off) and no problem. the only problem is the screen size (very hard to read the text).
it also handle 3gp file well.
camera, bean bag and the design is the best part of this phone (compare with the price).
the worse thing is the manual book. many advantage feature of this phone not mentioned in the manual book. you should find it by your self.
don't forget to install Opera mini (free) for better internet experience.
I'm sorry not replay your question.
I hope you already have the answer.
...Hi jihan, i also would like to know if while listening/playing music through mp3, does the music tune stops? if you'll have an incoming message?? or does it have separate options if you don't wanna be bothered by incoming message tone. Just curious.
I was kind of wondering, if transfering music files From PC to the phone's "MEMORY-card" is easy?? I'm Hoping Jihan can answer my Question.
...you see, I've GOT a lot of mp3-songs stored in my files(PC)...So it's is understandable enough, I'm fond of trnsfering mp3s From PC to phone. I have Walkman phone, But I really got attracted to e590.
Thanks jihan, yeah I agree with you. but, after installing the samsung "PC-studio" does it directly work?? 'cause I was inform by my friends that it's a hassle with a lot of fuss...but i don't want to believe them. I'm more on to your ideas, since you have the unit. Please I guess I really need some additional info on this. Thanks again...You been helpful.
#12, 10 Oct 2008Hi RC, is it really true? if for instance you have a certain track/song & have it entitled wit... moreLike what long title song is that? I'll try and see if there's any truth in it :) So far long title I have here is Coolio - See You When You Get There. Ohh I think I remember, It's not that you can't play it, It's just that Title and Artist name have limited characters for it to be transferred. You won't be able to go through with it if you aren't gonna edit the number of characters used.
Hi there again JC, I'm confused about the thing you have posted about "smartfile-man"? is that a CD-installer apps.? or merely an application? 'cause there's this thing called CD-PC-suite...so I was thinking how is it differ from SE walkman-"drag & drop" or I mean slightly similar?? Thanks again.
Hi RC, is it really true? if for instance you have a certain track/song & have it entitled with a very long "text" means a problem to the player system? I have nothing against you but, can you clarify it further? You see I do really want this phone.
#12, 10 Oct 2008...just wanted to clarify things. Music transfer applications with the use of USB-2.0...from P... moreyup, the transfer i said is done thru the use of the usb but you can also send it through bluetooth anywayz but still I prefer usb :D
...just wanted to clarify things. Music transfer applications with the use of USB-2.0...from PC to phone & vice versa.
#12, 09 Oct 2008Hi jc, since i'm a music dude, i hope you don't mind 'bout my being wanted to ask you if how e... moreTo #12...you download the Samsung PC Studio for SGH-E590 in www.samsung.com to your computer and transfer files from there to your phone. The process goes like this...for instance for music, you transfer songs from pc to phone and you manually (check one by one or click ALL) transfer the files from phone to memory card. Same process goes for other files :)
Yes, i did tried to familiarize its features but sad to say, users can't actually get the chance on knowing in regards to transfering music mp3-files from PC to phone & vice versa. I mean you got to have a unit first so you can actually determine or possibly say it's similar to the "drag & drop" of SE-walkman phones. I'm really into e-590, i'm really fascinated 'bout this phone. Seems perfect to me though, that's why I'm very specific & curious about its music mp3 file transfer apps. PC-phone & vice versa. To me, e590 would be the greatest phone in my opinion...comes with the low price with an impressive features in store. Only thing though, The music transfer apps. remains unfamiliar to me. Anyways, thanks jc & jihad. you've been great. I really appreciate your thoughts on e590. Take care.
