i started out with the samsung e715 and upgraded to this model and it is such an advancement in technology and coolness factor..... i love this phone for the great megapixel camera with dual flash sleek design , mp3 player, bluetooth technology, 90mb memory storage and so many other great features and even better is i got it for $40...... if you would like to know how to get it for this price e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org..... but if you dont think you can trust things like this then the phone is definitely worth paying $300 for it!!!!!!!!
i really am interested in buyin this phone. does it have speakerphone? can u programme people's photos to come up when they sms you?approximatly how many messages does it hold?
Hi guys, before i buy dis phone i wanna know something. When someone is calling u, when u flip the phone open, do you talk 2 the person or do ya have to press a button. Thanks stef
first of all, samsung really got a problem with earsound even with with headset as well, but i have got some tips for you guys, after u tried my tips then give me some feedback if it worked or not.
1- about the earsound when you receive a call try to use the volume botton and bring down to minimum, or use the botton to raise your the volume at least to level 3 ou 2 then take your ears from the the ear speaker and bring and put instead onto the screen i garantee that the sound will sound better,
listen to your mp3 music, for sure all of you are use the headset in way it came from the manufacturer, listen if you had a fone before or nokia with ear pad(mainly black cover) take them and insert into your samsung headset you wont believe the quality of sounds. it will inprove a least 50 percent
3 instead of using usb cable try to get an bluetooth adapter to connect with your pc make sure the adaptor is more than 1mb of speed. then you can download and upload any kind of file into ur phone,(i have got all this crazy frog video and ringtone for free)
more tips? text me ur problem
i am thinking of buying this phone but before i do so i have some questuins. 1. Is this phone easy to use? 2. What is good about this phone? 3. what's bad about this phone? 4. is it worth buying. Please Help, Stef
is there a way u can tell from the box which batch of phones are the ones that are bad??
the voice quality is very poor. i didnt believe it first after reading the various reviews but now having bought this handset i am stuck and rather frustrated.
those considering buying this handset should seriously reconsider.
yeah im going 2 buy this phone off ebay. is there anyway i can ask the seller about this issue and have them check??
What do you all mean by voice sound quality? Is it when someone is talking to you o wad? I am planning to get this phone.
Many thanks for that tip about the cover key lock :->
the main problem with this phone is that the battery life does not live up to the specs given (unless my battery is a duff one.) the camera quality appeared better than the d500 they showed me in the shop and is easy to use. of course it would have been better if the in car charger and data cable were provided and if the connecter cables for hands free car kits were made at the same time as the phone instead of 3 months later if you are lucky. overall its not bad but is let down badly by the battery life.
Impossible lousy sound quality (voice)! I wanted to get it fixed in the shop, but after testing another e720 it seems this is supposed to be the quality you get anno 2005 from a top-model gsm... Other bad points: almost no possibilities to tweak things (you can't even change the homepage of the wap browser!) It doesn't accept java-apps via bluetooth. You need to go via WAP for that. It doesn't even want to install halve of the (simple) demo apps of Sun. I am VERY DISAPPOINTED. Do not buy this phone. You have been warned.
Sam, you can stop the camera activating in your pocket by enabling the 'cover key lock'. It's in Settings/Phone Settings/Extra Settings. This only disables the outside keys so you don't need to keep switching it on and off. If you want to use the outside keys, the feature can be temporally switched off from the outside too, without having to open the flip.
I think the rest of your comments are spot on.
hey sup yall. i have motorola 551 but i like dis e720 n i wana know how r da features on it. is da phone is loud or what? n how much it cost in dollars?
Firstly my last phone was a Sharpe GX10i
To address the primary concern about sound quality when making and receiving calls. I think it is fair 2 say that the quality is "usable" but not at the same standard as other mobiles, although when speaking to “Vodafone customer care" the quality was excellent which suggests that some of the quality issues are to do with strength / quality of signal or third party equipment, either way this should be treated as a priority by Samsung. Build quality is good and the phone although small and light seems sturdy enough for every day use. Both screens are bright and colour is excellent, I would have liked to see a slightly larger main screen as the viewable area is taken up by a large date and time field and sub menu leaving a relatively small postage size area for your own picture. Both screens are difficult to see in sun light which is a common problem with TFT displays. The front cover screen holds a text message alert along with signal strength and battery life but missed calls alert remains for about 15 seconds before it disappears or so, I don't understand why Samsung would do this as this is basic stuff for a mobile. Call me a big girl's blouse but I would have liked the multi coloured flashing diode of the earlier Samsung models (SGH-100) and a blue back light for the key pad. The keys on the pad have a good feel and size They are back lit in white (other than the green and red call buttons). Whilst on the subject of the buttons Samsung need to re-assign the central "OK" button to access the main menu as in most other mobiles, instead it launches the WAP browser which is irritating, also when entering text the space button is assigned to the # key which is on the bottom right. This is a pain and difficult to use if you have big hands and fingers, it would have been far more sensible to assign the central bottom key (+) to this function unfortunately you can not manually reassign these keys. I have no problem what so ever with the T9 function remaining as the set default and all text functions and software generally work well and is intuitive. You cannot assign your own ring tone for messages and have to rely on the pre-packaged ones which R naff, again why? when most people are use to being able to assign specific tones for messages. You do get a repeating (every 2 minutes) alert after receiving a text which is a nice idea shame it could not be replicated for a missed call. Again the phone is missing the ability to ring and vibrate at the same time (useful when out in a noisy town / environment. Battery life for average users I guess is about 3 days depending on usage however recharge times are quick. The camera and video work well for a phone, but you do have to be realistic, this is a phone and 1 megapixsal spec not a top of the range 6 MP camera. The button on the side of the phone activates the camera this is liable to be pressed in your pocket or accidentally and needs more thought. I guess much larger than 1 MP would make the file size prohibitory for sending over mobile phone networks. The MP3 player is nice, the games are naff, the voice recorder useful (especially if your being abused and thrown into a meat wagon by the local plot!!:->) The phone has a stated 88 megs of storage which makes it excellent for it's class, but given the cheapness of flash memory now especially in the country which manufactures this phone I cannot understand why a phone which sell's itself as a multimedia item does not have twice that amount or more or an expansion slot for a MMC. With a MMC slot it would make file transfer between computers and the phone cheap and child's play.
Overall this is a very nice bit of kit, but the area's needing improvement are obvious and I don't know why Samsung did not pick up on them at the R&D stage. Would I pay £265 for this handset? Probably not probably about £100 - £125. As a free upgrade it represents excellent value for money and I would give this phone an overall score of 85%
