Had this phone for a week now.Cost me under £100 from carphone - P.A.Y.G Virgin (cheapest!)Best of all it is unlocked to any network and no branding.Using my Orange sim in it.For the price Iam really pleased with it.It has a great camera,3.2 megapixel with Auto focus.(Works better than the latest S.E.T650i ive had)I like my music and ive got to admit,its louder and clearer,(even at full volume) than more expensive phones.Works great with my A2DP Motorola bluetooth headphones with adjustable equalizer settings on the phone.Had no problems with freezing screen or shutting down.Had no problems with stored pictures or music files running 'slow'I think this must have been fixed when the phone went out on sale.Got to say,for the money,you are getting a lot of toys on this phone that work and easily puts some more upmarket phones to shame.Its a real dark horse that delivers!
All of the specs that are listed on GSM Arena are accurate. I am in Canada had my friend buy the phone in Hong Kong for about $200USD.
My daily phone is a Treo 650 and I use the E590 for when I go out and on weekends. It is the perfect size and weight to put in your pocket and not weigh you down.
I have on a few occasions put it in my back pocket, forgot it was there and sat on it without snapping the phone in half. I think with a slimmer phone like the U100 it would have broken.
The camera takes great pics in the daytime once you figure out how to set the camera. Night time pics are a bit harder to take.
CAn anyone tell GSm Arena to put a "video" on this mobile... to get to know more about the phone
is this true?? slow memory card reading???
is it very very slow?? how is it the owners?
help me.. give your opinion.
from GSMarena's review>>
The only downside we found is the really slow reading speed from the memory card. Listing thumbnails of the pictures stored in the respective folder on the memory card seemed to take ages (no matter whether it's almost full or almost empty). We've never seen a Samsung handset read a memory card so slowly, so our best guess is that it may be some unit-specific problem with our handset or with our memory card.
i've just bought this phone for Rp.1.950.000,- it's about $200 in US Dollar, the package without any microSD :) wot is different from gsmarena's review is the fact of this phone using openwave's browser and not a netfront, also the sms inbox is 200 and not 1000 as mentions, the rest you can figure out from gsmarena.com's review :)
mc hammered can u give me more specifications of the mobile and about its price because it looks like a gr8 phone!!!
my question is actually about samsung Z777 and how to go about getting software for infrared working
Anyone know how to use your favorite images as random wallpapers instead of the default ones?
Right now I can only pick one instead of having them rotate.
The phone size is perfect if you are looking for a super light phone to put in your pocket without fear of it breaking in half.
It weighs less than my Audi key remote!
just wanted to know if this is a phone worth buying and how is its size? large or a good phone please REPLYYYY ANYONE!
The screen is completely square, so there is no point in playing video in landscape
Does anybody know if i can play video files in fullscreen landscape mode????
i live in the US.
where do i get wap and mms settings?!?!
plz help thanks
Mine came with the office viewer but without the driver CD. You can find all drivers here: http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/productsupport/download/Model_Select.aspx?type=Mobile+Phone&typecode=100100&subtype=Mobile+Phone&subtypecode=100101&model=SGH-E590&filetype=SW&language=
I bought this phone a few weeks ago but mine did not come with the Piscal Viewer (Word, PDF and Excel) application. Has anyone else experienced this? Also mine did not come with the Data CD that likley would have the drivers to hook it up to a PC. Anyone know where i could get this? Thanks!
