I am hoping to get this fone very soon and was wondering if you can set videos as caller id's? please reply on this or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org thankyou :)
Getting this phone within the next few days. Have also just received the D900 - will write a comparison between the 2 after ive had this one for a few days.
can anyone tell me how long the battery will last using the mp3 player? thanks
Had E900 for two weeks running on E900DXFG2 software, its working great and it takes about 3sec to connect, no wobbly feel, battery lasts me 2 days with heavy usage. If you're used to Samsung phones then its no trouble with its function. Make sure all u guys get the phone from an authorised distributor.
I have the same problem. whenever I open the slide and Press the left soft key ut wobbles slightly. It even happens with the right hand side. I am thinking about exchanging it. As far as connecting (through phone calls) The E900 does it in around 4 Seconds for me. Its normal like all other phones. Please could Anyone write down if they have any problems with there buttons wobbling Please. Thanks
hey daniel, was jst wondering if u could help me clarify on a thing.alot of users have complained tht it takes a long time to connect when making a call and sending a msg.is this true?or issit jst like the other samsungs?i'm currently using a samsung e730.thanks alot =)
It is a great phone, great design but I can tell you that buttons are hyper-sensitive. Anybody with big fingers or long nails can't use the phone properly. I loved it anyways but I still had to get rid of it this morning. What I really hated though was the fact that when you make a phone call, you cannot cancel it on the usual "end call" button but had to unlock the phone first (on the right side of the phone, which had a "sunken" button) and then, end your call. Good phone but somewhat not practical.
Extremely........ stylish, has a great senstivity keypad, the camera quality is awesome and the phon includes al features after using it for a week its still good
ps. the phonebook does allow multi number storage to one contact, mine does have a wobbly slide so i took it back and got a new one, it does have a micro sd slot, and if there is anything ese you want to know let me know and i will give you the definitive answer
I reviously have owned the Moto Razr V3i, Nokia 6260, Nokia 3200, Nokia 3210.
As you can see I am a big fan of Nokia phones but then I started to realise how boring the designs were and how expensive the phones were, but back to the Samsung E900.
When you first hold the phoneyou realise how light and sophisticated it looks.The screen is large and the menu navigation buttun is allthat you can see on the front.The sliding mechanism is smooth an reveals a clear alpha-mumeric keypadwith silver trimmings in between.Turn the phone around and you will see the 2 megapixel camera, a 'mirror' and the flash.
Installing the sim and battery isvery easy and the memory card is slotted in at the bottom of the phone for easy access which is a very good extra and prevents constantly removing the battery like with some phones (ahem V3i). Turn the phne on and you are greeted with a nice samsung phone club animationn and samsung sgh-e900 welcome message.The skin is black by defauly and although there may not be a much of a choice of skins, the skins available are still sophisticated but my opinion is the white skin is the better of the two. It must be noted I went straight on to testing the mp3 capabilities so put some tunes on there which was very easy with the usb andinstallation cd(drag and drop).It must be noted that the headphones included gave excellent sound quality and are very loud although very unattractive. The loud speaker is disgraceful for such an advance phone.Itlacks and base and has too much treble resuling in a flat sound with the snare being the loudest partof the song you can hear. Sound affects do sound good and so do games. The camera is the average 2mp camera and does suffer from bad shutter lag. You need a steady hand and to remain in the same position for at least 5 seconds after taking the photo for it not to turn out blurred. The video camera is one of the best I have used.It is very clear when recording and doesnt have the pixellation that comes up on other phones when you move the camera whilst recording.The screen is very bright and produces a very sharp picture but dosnt have the animated menus like n the d600.The phone has a dedicated mp3 and camera button which is very handy and an off/on button which also acts as the unlock button to use the phone without sliding it up.Texting is easy for me as i use the side of my fingers I have realised but those who use the tip of their fingers might find difficulty with the 1,2,3 buttons. The customisation features are good but you cannot select an mp3 as a message alert tone which is a shame but not a big loss as you can use mp3s as a ringing tone.mp3s cannot be used as an alarm either.
I now get to the important bit, the touch sensitive keys. I have had a mixed experience with them buthey are just a gimmickat the end of the day but a very cool one. The keys light up when yo slide up or unlock the phone and the mp3 kes come up when you press the dedicated mp3 button whilt listening to the music player or when in the music menu. I found the pause/play button to be not very reactive but the back and forward buttons were fine.the two soft keys were also a little non reactive but I found the call and cancel call buttontobe over reactive.maybe this was just my phone or the way it is meant to be but i fond this a little frustrating.call quailty sound is good but reaching speakerphone mode is a hassle and not one touch button like a Nokia. I do reccomend this phone bu the lac of personalisation options results in me not giving this a 10 or 9 so I will give the Samsung SGH-e900 a 8.5/10.
A very good phone but lack of customisation lets it down.camera is very good although suffer from lag and touch sensitive keys are unblanced in sensitivity.
yeh i had the wobbly slide on whenever i touched the top left soft key and i sent mine back to dial a phone who replaced it.i will post to let u knw if same problem persists
Can anyone give some detailed info about the phonebook?
Recently, Samsung has been de-evolving on some features.
Before, you were able to input several numbers within a single contact name. (Cell, Home, Work... etc)
Some of the recent Samsung models, they have reverted back to having individual etries for each different type of number!
You would have to have different names for each number, if that person had several contact numbers.
(For example: John Doe Home, John Doe Cell... etc.)
I refused to purchase a D600 because of this.
I know this may not be a big deal to most of you, but it is one of the biggest problems for me. It's even a bigger problem than battery life or other major issues.
Can anyone tell me if this phonebook has the same problems?
Thank you for your input.
all right guys. a few questions.
1. is the e900's screen suppose to be visible under direct sunlight? cuz i can barely see mine
2. is the touch buttons suppose to be sensitive at all times? cuz sometimes the buttons doesnt seem to respond to my touch
alritey thats all. thx
its fantabulous mobile i ve seen
but is ther any body who will tell me that is there flash in this mobile
I have just got a E900 and compared it to the nokia 6280. The design of the E900 is brilliant and once you get the hang of the touch buttons its fantastic, the camera and video are also really good. There are a couple of little things which are better on the Nokia such as being able to change the msg tone to what you want and the camera is slightly better at night other than that the Samsung wins.
Everyone who has a mess with mine wishes they had it.
The top bit of my phone wobbles too, dnt kno if i like it rly, i also find the middle buttons rly loose
