The screen is normal and keys function well. These are not the aspects in e590 one should complain about. I am also very fond of it minimalistic design which I think is cool.
But there are problems too. Mainly in the camera department. Though you can make beautiful black and white photos - sharp, great contrast, you can also play with it manually changing some settings, ISO number for instance.
But the quality of color pictures really disappoints - the phone camera can not register blue, but turns it into purple which is closer to red then blue. So whenever there is blue sky you camera gets it purple. But yellow-brown colors in pictures have very visible green. In both cases (with blue and yellow-brown) distortion is strong.
I am really disappointed about these shortages. Since Samsung is making also digital cameras I thought that in this area the results had to be better. Better then they are and better then with cell phone cameras of their competitors.
But I am glad about b&w pictures. Before I bought the camera I knew I will be making them a lot. What I did not know that I will be pushed to make them, since color pictures look really awful.
Dear user of e590,
1- can you explain me if is it possible to install any java application with trick?
2- is it possible to read a .pdf or .doc documents? I know that is not possible to edit this kind of documents :(
please, email me :))
the display is torture to my eyes! it has very small viewing angle, unless u stare at the screen directly, u can't make out the picture..the 3mp is very disappointing, and even if it is good, u will, by no means, enjoy it on such a display..the keypad response is also slow, typing message sucks..and it is just too expensive, I don't care which gaywad designed it, its just not worth the bread..I returned it a day after I bought it..talk about impulse buying
May be you also have discovered how to make this cellphone to remember camera settings?
E.g., I want pictures to be saved directly after the shooting. It is possible if I make this preference before a session. But when I leave the camera mode and then come back again - these settings are gone.
What to do?
This Phone reminds me of SE W890i....
seems like SE have copied it...same featurs to!
Ok thats great. thanks- will get myself a card and see if its any good! thanks a lot
the format for movei is MP4,
i used V-gen 1Gb micro SD for my phone,
but when i save the Photo or move the photo from phone memory into this memory card, the picture resolution become smaller
(if check/ preview on PC, the result is very bad).
SO BECAREFULL, for video & music is no problem (yet).
You will need to download "samsung PC studio" to transfer file from the phone memory (phone USB setting as modem.
To turn shutter sound off- press the camera button to go into camera mode, then when the camera screen comes up, press the mode button on the side of the camera, and choose settings for the camera. you can turn all sounds off and on in there. took me ages to find it too!!!
if i buy a micro sd card for this phone- can i play movies on it??? what format will they need to be in???

Can anyone tell me if you can use a pin number lock to get in to your inbox or messages in general?
Would be very appreciated as my parents like to look through my texts when im not looking!
Please, what is the indication in all those phone descriptions that you can
1) transfer mp3 from a computer and then
2) use those music files as ringtones?
I am a bit confused because there are all those offers in magazines to by music and ringtones for phones. I mean, who who buy them if you can get the for free from your pc?!
3) Does E590 have this option: computer MP3 files>>cellphone>>ringtone
i wonder if anyone can help i am after some software for my phone because much as i love it i am not going to pay more for the software than i did for the phone can anyone help cheers dunc
Forgot to mention, for those who do care about SAR levels (like me), the level of this phone is only 0.44 W/10gr and considering Nokia's and SE's mostly reach above 1.0, this is quite an achievement.
A truly delightful phone, has all the features the modern phone should have, but yet manages to stay light, compact and visually stunning. It's quite an attraction, even with it's minimalistic design.
when is a designer celfone not a designer celfone? when its been designed by the acclaimed jasper morrison design studios like the samsung e590,a perfect fusion of form and function! 3mp camera,mp3 and mp4 with fm radio,bluetooth connectivity with expandable memory and 90mb internal memory. this one is for the fashionistas on fashion week!
a cool and collected celfone,the samsung e590. except for the fiddly joystick and the inability to really customize the message alerts and average battery life. 3mp camera,mp3 and mp4 with fm radio,90mb internal and upto 1gb upgradeable external memories,bluetooth connectivity,handy size yet sturdy,make up for its short comings. two thumbs up for this pint sized powerhouse!
the samsung e590 is a great celfone in the practicality department. small and compact coupled with sturdiness. 3mp camera is just fine especially when its a samsung known for their great audio/video/tv appliances. mp3 and mp4 capabilities with bluetooth compliments its large 90mb internal and upto 1gb external memories. the cool fm radio is the icing in this true mini marvel of a celfone.
