This phone doesn't have flickering lights like Siemens M55 or Nokia 3220. Only flash light that bright enough for night shot. Also this phone doesn't have colorful LED light like other Samsung phones
Voice memo up to 1 hour. Video limited by phone memory which is already being alocated to several feature: video, images, music and MMS (total of 32MB, no memory card slot). I like Samsung due to its clear 262k screen & 1000 phone book memory with multiple numbers. If you like to have much better one, you wait for Samsung D600
is that true that this phone can video/voice record up to one hour?(pls. reply ASAP.thanks)
erm may i noe whether this phone got many lights flickering when ppl call??
Maybe to make it different with E720/730. the package of E640 is not include the USB cable. Samsung USB cable is affordable as well, lot cheaper than Nokia or SE. If you buy E720/730, the package is already include USB cable and Samsung Software CD. Samsung E720/730, E640 or E530 are among the best. Can't wait to buy Samsung i300 or D600
All the features!!!
I've had my E640 now for a few days and I'm very happy with it.
The phone is really easy to use (I haven't even opened the manual).
If you have this phone and don't like it I'm not too sure what else you may be expecting.
Like every phone this one has faults as well, but I could not regret buying it!
The phone has a very impressive camera/video recorder. The only thing which annoys me (because I love taking photos/videos) is the way you can only use the flash when the phone is flipped open. You can't have the camera and flash on external screen together. I may be wrong but I have searched through the phone and can't manage to have the flash on.
I have not had any problems with calling and recieving phone calls either. Voice Quality is great!
I've not had a problem with reception, and I've noticed while my boyfriend has had no reception bars on his Motorola V3 I've managed to still have full reception. (I was thinking of getting the V3).
Anyway the phones boasts all kinds of great features and I recommend it to anyone. I think the E730/20 would have been a better phone as it does have more memory but all the E730 has is extra along with more memory is a radio and the buttons on the front for the mp3 player.
It all depends on how much memory you need. 32MB is plenty for me and I take photos/videos all the time. If you want to take hour long videos and store MP3's (just use iPod!) then I would get the E730.
I don't use my E640 for MP3's because I think it's a waste of space, I think they would need to make phone with 1g of memory before I use it for a MP3 player (too many songs, I couldnt shorten the playlist to 20 songs!).
Still the E640 has everything for your needs and I recommend it. The only thing you may need to buy extra is a USB so you can tranfer all your phones data to your computer- i'm not to sure why this was not included in the first place.
The phone does have handsfree included.
How can upload or download the pictures and movie to or from computer? How can activite my GPRS and MMS?
Yes you're right catcat. The battery life in Samsung never exceeds my expectation (except Phillips, but low quality mobile phone). But Samsung now become more sophisticated & high tech comparing others. With minimum use of bluetooth & camera, you can safe battery for the entire day. Luckily I have 2 chargers (former my lost Samsung)so I can put 1 in the office.
hmm, the battery life isnt that great tho...talk time up to 6* hours, standby time up to 290* hours, but with some little usage of the phone functions and less then 30mins talking time a day, the battery went flat at the end of the day, meaning 1 battery last me about a day. Another thing is that, theres no time stamping on phone after you sent out a sms (i wonder if samsung can do a upgrade on this), u have to set the delievery report which cost 1 sms =( beside these 2, this mobile is really great, clear speaker, nice mp3 player ringing sound is loud enough too ;)
I got my E640 today! As I expected: great mobile phone in affordable price! Yes, internal memory only 32 MB & no memory card slot, average in camera (can't beat Sony Ericsson's megapixels), very solid and best thing is: ABLE TO INSERT PHONE BOOK IN MESSAGE WRITTING!!!!!!
the only mistake you did in e640 was the infrared spot that is there, the phone is nice and colour is okey,keep it up and one thing add fm stereo to your phones
this small thing is very nice,i've got a samsung e630 and want to change to the e640, are they available in countries like swaziland coz if we now have i wont wait.
if you need clamshell with colorful cover you can look for Samsung E530. It has orange, purple, yellow, etc. Features are about the same with Samsung E640.
I love this phone it has lots of features but can it come in different colours.
Its nice and cute but as many are said.. there should be more colours. I dont think i buy this becouse E730 is better.. is it? and i dont know much about it^^ it looks like good but maybe not good for me^^
just one question... does this phone come with different colors? isnt it looked dull with only one color?
Hi guys, for those who have this phone already, do you know if it has the built in handsfree option? Thanks.
