Just bought one. fabulous for those that just want a phone and don't mind a good camera built in.
Very small but not micro. Shorter then the Nokia 6300 and weighs less. Good screen (220x220) and bunch of games thrown in (I bought unlocked). Battery seems quite good. Takes microSD. Has radio and MP3 player. Camera is bonus, 3MP auto-focus. At the top end of camera phones. No 3G and not quad band, only tri-band. Has EDGE.
Best phone I have had for years. Lovely easy to use user interface.
I think is a great phone. Very good.
Has a superb quality!!
I still didn't manage to disable the horrible shutter noise! How can i do that or simply lower the volume?
WTF?!?! THIS fone is good! but why is it so cheap?!!? its only 99 pounds in the U.K....
does anyone know how to get settings for the WAP browser and the sms configuration? thanks
see that page, about half way down they compare the U100 camera with pics taken by the e590, (basically the same)
Its a nice little phone and I'll probably buy it, the problem is the availabilty in the UK, can people give me links to good prices for a sim free? best i can find is 99.95 on virgin pay as you go but you need to buy £10 credit with that. cheers
Could someone post some pictures taken by the phone? Thanks on advance...
You can't use custom tones for incoming messages and my phone has just 4 preset sounds. Doesn't bother me much because my T610 was around the same. The display measures 3,2 by 3,2 cm (10,24 cm^2) and is dense, compared to old 128x128 phones, but I think it's not as dense as bar 240x320 phones (i don't have any to compare). Lacking a stereo jack is a handicap for the MP3 Player, limiting you to using only special headphones. The stock headphones don't sound as loud as I'd like for some songs at maximum volume. Videos can be recorded at up to CIF (352x288) but there is a visible skipping (I don't know what the FPS is, but it should be around 10-15 fps at this resolution).
is the screen as small as it lokks and how good is the camera and music player quality. finalla t what reslution does it record video, considering buying this or nokia 6300, any sugestions on which i should buy, please help.
thanks christian. to anyone looking for this phone, its available from carphone warehouse in u.k. priced £99.99+ £10 top up on virgin mobile. thats around 150 euros, great phone for the price.
Could you tell us if the sms tones can be "whatever we want" (like mp3s...) or does Samsung continue to allow only those awful fixed sounds?
I personally don't like bar-type phones, but this seems like a nice one, and it is only €199 carrier free. :)
I have this phone and am pretty content with it. About the posts before mine - yes, it can vibrate and ring at the same time regardless of the type of ringtone. It isn't the default option so you'll have to select it from the Settings menu. The camera doesn't have optical zoom (and how could it in such a tiny phone). The MP3 player doesn't read ID3 tags and doesn't sound very well with the bundled headphones... I guess I've become addicted to my desktop headphones...
can someone tell me if its possible to set it to ring and vibrate at the same time with mp3 ringtone as its not possible with my current samsung e370
please tell me:::
does it have flash?
does it have optical zoom?
does it have camera shutter?
is mp3 player comparable to walkman phones?
how good is battery life?
please i like this phone i need to know these features.thanks.I WOULD FEEL GRATEFUL.
Anyone knows how to check this phone firmware version ?
Is the keypad tone changeable ?
i dont like this handset.....it looks old and my boss says he tinks its rubbesh!! lol.... dont think its gunna sell as theres much nicer phones on the market!!
Why no flash ? won't buy it, a flash is really important for me. Sorry because otherwise looks nice.
I just want to know is the phone`s mp3 player good enough ? How is the sound?And what about the battery life?Thanks in advance!
Hi cosmic..you mentioned you had an N80 before this phone. I have an N80 and am looking to change. You're absolutely right, the phone, though great is pretty heavy and bulky. Must be a big change! What are your other thoughts regarding a comparison between the two? would appreciate some ideas..thanks
