ouiblette's comments on the E900 are spot on. the E900 is definetly not up to Samsung's standards, and is IMHO, a very flawed phone. bit of a wolf in sheeps clothing. ie, really nice to look at, but when you actually use the thing, its a bit crap compared to other phones.
i'm returning my E900 and getting an N80 :)
I was going to buy this phone, but after so many people have complained about it it as cast doubts in my mind. I love the design nd prefer the style to the E370 (OW cup phone). After all the comments that have been made would someone actually recommend the phone or is it a really bad phone. If so, what else would people recommend from Samsung that is new.
hey guys i just wanted to ask about the d900 as im due an upgrade round about august september time and i wanted to know wen this is being released and good is it features etc
also e900 wat out of 10 wud u give? as at first i was gonna get that but now i know bout d900 so not sure....
THE NO NONSENSE GUIDE TO THE E900
SAMSUNG PLEASE READ!!!!
Although the phone looks stylish, compact and sleek, it’s highly polished surface shows up every mark conceivable. I wonder how long the phone will look as good as the day it was bought? Time will tell.
When opening the phone with one hand, you need to place your thumb on the centre of the screen in order to slide the phone open. The result is a permanent thumbprint on your screen!
The sliding element of the phone rocks over the main casement when in use leading to a concern over its build quality.
The MP3 speaker is of very poor quality although I can’t compare it with any other MP3 player phones so this may be the norm. I know its just a phone but can manufacturers really advertise their products as having an MP3 player when it sounds like its playing from within a tin can when in use?
When at its minimum volume, everyone in my office can still hear the incoming call. (and no its not on speaker phone!) Handy when your in a noisy pub but not so good when your conducting a private phone call!
There is no ‘ring and vibrate’ alert at the same time! What are Samsung playing at?
Whilst texting, the ‘back’ button is way to close to the ‘cancel’ button resulting in me persistently pressing the wrong button when cancelling a letter. The phone does at this stage ask whether you wish to save the message in drafts resulting in you having to navigate to you draft messages to complete your text.
I would personally like to have text messages saved automatically in my out box without instructing it to do so every timeI send a message.
There seems to be an incredible amount of sub-menus you must navigate in order to send a simple text message to one person. Does Samsung assume you always wish to send your message to multiple people? I’ve found it’s quicker to simply type the number of the person you wish to send it to – that’s if you can remember the number of course! I JUST WANT TO SEND THE FLAMING MESSAGE AS QUICKLY AS I CAN!
The cancel button within the text facility is one of the heat sensitive buttons resulting it taking an age to delete several letters/words in a text. Strangely, keeping your finger on the cancel button wipes the entire text. If I wanted to do that, surely I’d simply start another text message.
WHY AREN’T THERE ANY NORMAL RING TONES ON THE PHONE? It drives me mad when phone manufacturers assume every purchaser wants a stupid polyphonic ring tone or an MP3. PLEASE PROVIDE A SIMPLE ELECTRONIC ‘RING RING’ IN FUTURE!!!!
The heat sensitive buttons whilst taking some time to master, require careful pinpoint accuracy otherwise you run the risk of (yes you’ve guessed it) pressing the back button again- Aaaaarrrrrggghhh!
You need to place the phone on a tripod to take a decent photograph! Why do all my images seem blurred? Is this just me?
An increasing number of people claim the line is bad/I have poor reception even though the reception reads full bars. Is this my network? Didn't happen on my previous phone!
Strangely, the phones screen stays on whilst charging. I wonder whether this will have a ghosting effect on the screen over time. Can be a little annoying when your trying to sleep at night!
The phone appears to be switched off when in stand by. Only when you press a button can you see the time, date or missed call/ received text message etc.
Oh and lastly on a minor issue, why include Chelsea wallpaper images? Again, does Samsung assume all purchasers are Chelsea supporters? Could have been Newcastle United instead!!!!!
If considering a purchase, please remember: there’s so much more to a phone than simply looking good on the day of purchase!!
It cannot stay on predictive text. Also, there is no vibrate and ring mode.
just had mine a few days now and i think its great the touch keys do take some getting used to but over all very impressed
I decided I will buy this phone because:
The design looks amazing
People say its fairly small and light
It doesn't have to be 100 percent perfect, it has lots of features and the design is quality. People stop complaining and others dont be put off as it will probably be a good phone.
At first I was looking at the Samsung e530 well the official world cup phone I was wanting to buy that. But now I have seen this one Samsung bring out a new phone every week lol but this phone design is so impressive and cool. Do people think his phone is better than the official world cup phone? I hope it is not expensive on pay as you go 02.
I think its fab! im 13 and my obsession is PHONES!!! its got all the gadgets,is light,touch pad, and easy to use! im getting it in 13 dayz now having tried it out in the shop! its well worth it but i hope it doesnt become to popular or it will lose its specialness!
Install samsung Pc studio 3 then connect ur usb. Open the icon manage files and then select ur file. Right click to transfer file to phone then just select the destination folder to ur phone. Very easy software to use.
can anyone tell me how to put songs on the phone. i have the disk and usb lead but dont now where to start. ty
What is the ring volume like on this phone, I have the P300 but might return it as it is very low. Shull I go for the E900 or the Sony K610? I like the smallness of the P300.
i bought the samsung e900 today and i must say it is a wicked phone! i like the idea of the heat sensitive keypad. i am aware of the fact that the slide can be slightly dodgy sometimes but its much better compared to the d600. i havent put down the phone since i bought it this morning. it is the must have phone today in the market!
hey ehy do you lye so much.if e900 drops the things that will remain or only the nmber buttons because the surface is vey glossy andthe slider hahhaha.....D820 is the best
cannot choose between sim or phone for contacts?
You can choose between sim and phone for contacts and also transfer all your contacts from sim to phone.
does anybody know if u can change the theme's of the E 900 samsung ?????
got the E900 the other day, mixed feelings about it, some really basic features are missing like..
no vibrate and ring. it vibrates 3 times and then rings. even worse with text messages, you have a choice of either vibrate or tone, and not both (and cannot use your own choice of sound, ie mp3). really strange that Samsung would have omitted such a basic and VERY useful feature found on 99% of other recent phones. can be fixed by using PSMPlayer and .mmf poly files, but they sound outdated today compared to real music mp3 etc.
no profiles. nuff said.
the touch keys are a bit of a gimmick, i am forever cancelling writing halfway though a text due to a very sensitive "clear" button near the 4 way pad. much rather have real buttons.
cannot choose between sim or phone for contacts.
composing and sending a text seems to take forever. too many key presses to get to "send", and also cannot get T9 to stay on as default when writing a new text.
nice screen, small, pretty decent quality camera, good memory + expansion.
Wish i'd gotten an N80 now :-/
For people saying the slider isn't good, or it gets scratched easily.
Mine feel out of my pocket onto a rough surface while i was running. The screen wasn't scratched just the corner of the plastic at the back a little. The slider suffered no damage at all. Surprisingly durable.
received this fone yesterday i thinks its brill, the touch screen takes a bit of getting use to, but was wondering does anyone know why when the phone is not in use the phone looks like it is switched off and to see if i have a missed call or text i have to press the selct button and then the screen lights up and i can the see the logos at the top. Had a E720 before and the signal bar,time and envelope was on constantly.
