actually after i using this phone for a half year, what i can say is this phone is quite a good phone in basic function, less problem and good receiver ,but if compare to those guy who finding for smart phone like o2 or nokia, dun try samsung ..cos samsung is a handphone, not a TV, powerfull camrecord or camera, playstation .It is just a basic phone for those use the phone in probably way.we dun like so much trouble on pressing keypad. it just a very simple,usefull handphone. and for whose u guy mention about battery problem,camera problem,sound problem ..sorry i never face b4 as long i use
This phone is almost perfect. I've this in the matte Noir/Black Soft Feel version. I love it so much.!! The battery needs a few initial full recharging & discharging to make it last longer. Bluetooth speed is amazingly fast. Radio's great too. One flaw would be the ringtone volume, it's too soft. It needs to be improve..But overall this phone's a 8.5/10 for me. It's going to stay with me for a while.. =D
Hard to give credit to a sub-standard product that doesnt deliver...just my opinion true..seems quite a few others share this opinion when checking the previous posts as suggested..i never got the chance to experience problems with any of the other features of the phone as some people have here...my phone has never worked..why not ask questions here? The handbook is useless
Hey you guys,
What the hell happened here? This isn't TECH SUPPORT you know! It's "User Opinions"!
For those who can't upload mp3s - try thinking first before posting like mad. The phone is glitchy when it comes to connections. Also, check if your PC has enough memory (I mean RAM and buffer memory) before you transfer huge files because the phone hangs when there's not enough buffer memory. If your RAM is 256 MB or higher, you can upload easily.
Using the USB is discussed in the user manual. Although the details aren't listed, you could use the old "trial and error" method when you try out certain features. Don't be afraid to experiment, that's what the warranty is for!
Transfering files is easy. Get a Bluetooth dongle if you can't use the USB. Also, try reading older posts here, since many of them old posts have the answers to the questions that you have.
That "video recording..." error message just means that you didn't exit correctly from the Camera menu. Try going into that menu then just keep pressing the "Back" option, not the "End call" red button.
And for those who don't like the phone... well that's okay to say it's bad because it's your opinion, but you could at least give a little more credit to the phone. Just say that it's bad and it'll be enough, you don't have to exaggerate.
And anyone out here reads the "Posting Rules"? Learn a little etiquette...
I bought my E730 back in July and it has been sent in for warranty repairs three times since then each time to rectify the same problems. It is currently away for repairs now and I am using a Nokia 6610i as a loan phone. The Nokia a much better and more reliable product.
Problems with my E730:
1. Screen freezes then fades - phone has to be turned off then on again (software problems)
2. Battery life is way too short (as mentioned in other posts)
3. Front cover diplay does not work, no MP3 player, no camera...nothing
Verdict = phone is garbage...my first and last Samsung..going back to Nokia (Thank god there is a lemon clause in my contract)
ok i cannnnot figure this phone out at all. it wont let me go to the browser. it wont let me do anything with the cd or usb thingy. i dont even know if i am doing it right. i tried calling my tmobile company and they said they cant help me, but im gonna try again. so someone please help me. i love the phone but wtf i dont know how to work it!!! thankssssss
i like this phone , but it has weak battery. it took me only a day to use this phone.darmm samsung.why don't you give the powerfull battery.
Oh and try -- IDk what you're talking about but my phone lasted a day and a half, and it only lost 1 bar, so I still had 2 bars worth of battery life. Make sure you only charge it when necessary. ;] Also, I did use the phone and talk on it for probably, a total of 30 minutes, but I'm just saying that the battery life does last pretty long--just make sure you charge it completely, only when the battery starts blinking due to low battery.
Jeff, it's true that this phone does have a lot of features, there are some downsides.
But I'd have to admit, I'm VERY happy with this phone. Not only is it stylish, but it has many features, despite the crappy flash and kind of weird external display. I still would say this phone is worth every penny I paid for it.
Oh and I was able to put mp3s on this phone finally. Spent a few hours (the booklet doesn't say anything about how to go about it), but I'm satisfied that I accomplished it, while quite a few others who have the e730 can't seem to connect the phone to their PC. Great phone. I'm learning to love this phone more than my old samsung e315 (which I loved to death).
i having problem transferring mp3songs and picx to phone and vise versa. what happens is that the phones restarts while I transfer mp3 songs to the phone.
can someone pleasssseeeeeeeee help me?!
email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
oddbins, your an alright guy. your totaly wright. nobody is sane in this place!
Everyone who posts a bad comment aout this phone is extreamly over criticle and is never happy with anything. This phone is great. I know lots of people with this phone and they all say the same thing, and the people I know without this phone all want it. So if you are thinking of writing a bad review for this phone, try being a little more open minded and a little less ARROGENT!!
I read these opinions with increasing incredulity.Not just for the e730 but all phones on this site.I'ts almost like someone found a madhouse locked away in some ancient village and gave all the inmates a laptop pc and told them to post an opinion.
Opinion 1: " i bort dis 4one and its in da box and no one has told me ow to get it out of da box like...pleeze somone tel me ow to open da box?"
Suggestion....you know that booklet that came with the phone?Try reading it!!
i've been using this phone for 3 months but not really happy for buying it.photo quality is not good enough and the memory not enough.i can not download java games either.i politely used samsung phones before but now i m not pleased with this phone.now i m searching for someone to sell it.
hi everyone i mite get tis phone but im not sure. i want to kno if the phone is really big and if it has a good quality camera. plz tell me plz. if u can answer me can u plz email me!!! plz!!!!
Hi! I've got this problem: when I try to upload things from my samsung to my computer, this message pops up:
"video recording event has occurred"
I've seen people here that says that the solution is this:
put the video recording sound off(if on) or on(if off)
this shall solve the problem.
But how do I do that?? I REALLY NEED HELP! PLEEEEASEEEEEEEE!!!????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
... the flash sucks. Oh, and the external display.. wth... OKay if it's a 65k display, why is it when I assign pictures to the outside, that the quality is so horrible? It looks as bad as the quality of the nokia 6102 external display.. o__O"
As for mp3.. I haven't tried the whole mp3 thing yet. The flash on the camera sucks. But everything else is awesome :]
