excellent feature set except for 2 touch pad problems:
- feather sensitive and easy to accidentally activate
- unable to rapidly delete many characters when composing SMS, faster to re-type it all
When the phone is closed, the touch sensitive keypad won't work. U need to open the slider to enable it to be activated.
Not really! you still can use to get into a menu or make a call while the phone is closed by press power button anh release the touch sensitive on anh you can use to make a call or get into the features which don't need to open the phone.
just got the samsung 900 its brill but i have a problem how do i turn the sound off when i have sent a message
Myself and my partner bought this phone on Saturday from Carphone Warehouse (on 02), but they did not have it in stock, so they sent it directly to our home on Tuesday and I have to say that while it's a good handset, the touch controls are way too sensitive for normal day-to-day use (especially the cancel/end call sensor, which if you got too close to, would take you out of whatever opperation you may be doing at the time). It became so annoying that we returned both handsets today (after just two days) and replaced them with two LG KG800 Chocolate's, which we are far more happy with.
I know there will be some people reading this, wondering how we could be happier with (what you could say is) a "less well featured handset", but "great features do not a good handset make". In other words, just because a phone has tons of great feature, if they are poorly implemented (as they are on the Samsung), it will make for a unenjoyable experience (which it did). The LG Chocolate, though not having as many features as the Samsung, is a far better handset because all it's features are well implemented and thus enjoyable (which it is, as I've hardly put it down since arriving home with it).
Sorry Samsung, you didn't get it right with this one.
You say the slider is not gd? Are u sure?
The slide is solid and good.
hey you there.....dont buy this fone for these reasons:
1.its not comfortable for everyday life
3.it gets easyly scratched
4.slider is not good
i liked it very much but i got a D820 and its amazing wich is not expensive only 279 eurod. in october, when the fun starts to play and the D900 will be released, i'll drop the d820 and get the d900.
cheers and hop this help to those that are undecided what mobile should they get
it is to touch sensitive and compared to my old Samsung D500 takes ages to send a text reply.....note longer when your hand touch"s the senses, frustrating when you have to start all over again, camera ok but no way a usea friendly mobile.
cant wait to get this phone. its looks have done the job, dont know about fuctions yet.
only got fone to day i like it but would like to know where i can buy the memory card from and how much is it to buy thank you lisa
d900 does not have the touch sensitive buttons (good!!), is thinner (the thinnest slide phone in the world apparantly) and has a better camera (3.3 megapixels!!!!)
can anyone please tell me the difference between a d900 and e900 and when the d900 is aviailable
couple of weeks into ownership and this is what i think;-
Great looking phone, great screen (big and very clear), loads of features (I previously had a d500 and this has way more features), cool games (although as far as i can see they are only demos). The vivid messages are a cool idea (it types the message out when you are reading it and replaces certain words like home and love with animations). Very thin and light so barely notice it in your pocket. Camera at 2 megapixels is good.
not very good build quality (screen wobbles already)
touch sensitive buttons can be a pain (when
writing messages and always redialing)
no sound AND vibration
a bit slow
MIGHT BE BETTER THAN SOME PHONES BUT IN MY OPINION NOT UP TO SAMSUNG STANDARDS. SHOULD HAVE STAYED WITH THE D500 FOR NOW AND WAITED FOR THE D900
This phone seems pretty -good although iv only had it a day, its really nice to hold and is very functional... and personally i think it looks as good as the chocolate if not better! (btw i did press clear alot by accident-i imagine ill get used to it.)
HOWEVER i cant get it to stay on T9 predictive text,it always reverts to ABC....
Is this normal?
How can i change it?
Hi I was wondering whether to ge the N80 or E900 a guy in a O2 store was stating that E900 would be better as the N80 has got loads of faults and keeps being delayed due tp these faults. I must admit I need a realiable phone, as my w800i kept dropping calls (even after 3 replacements). In the end I decided to go back to my Nokia 6230 as this phone for me has very rarely dropped a call.
