Hiya, I was just wondering as quite afew people have said they have had problems with it calling people. Can u lock the phone as the touch pad is so sensitive? Any comments would be appreciated!
does anyone know how to make vids longer wen recording and make screen bigger
i am a samsung loyal customers. Currently using D820. Feel a bit sad due to a lot of peoples start saying Samsung now start to follow LG .... Touch sensitive keypad
I just received this phone yesterday and i have been playing around with it for a while. I upgraded my phone from the D600 which was a great phone but i wanted to try something different.
This phone has a lot of cool things the The touch sensitive buttons took me a few hours to get used to but after that they are really not all that bad and actually pretty cool. the camera is just like the D600 if any of you have messed with it. if you have the resolution set all the way up, the camera lags for a couple seconds before taking the picture. other than that i love this phone the look, feel, weight, screen res, it all pretty cool.
the only other bad thing i can think about is when charging the phone's light stays on which i just flipped the phone over and problem solved.
I wrote earlier that my E900 only managed around 8 hours standby time, after reading some comments I decided to ex-change it for another.
The phone is now on for 15 hours and still showing all the battery bars, which far exceeded my original expectations!
As I was not the only person that had poor battery life, there must be something wrong with Samsung's QC, so potential buyer make sure you check your phone thoroughly!
I love the phone now as it offers a number of advantages for me:
1) compact - I can put it in my pocket and it won't bulge
2) good screen quality - good for showing photos to friends
3) Micro SD card slot - good for storing lots of photos
The touch sensitive buttons does not bother me as much as some of you and I do think that they look very cool indeed. I hope that I can solve the fingerprint problem with protective film although it's a minor issue for me.
Hi all, I had the chance to upgrade on O2 earlier this week. After hours on the phone trying to upgrade to a D600 (which I was more keen on getting) they said it would cost £120 so I decided to go with the new E900 for free.
Hmmm.. to me I think this was a big mistake.
1)Don't get me wrong, the phone is gorgeous but it's so nice and smooth that I'm scared that I will damage it's oh so perfect casing, with fingerprints etc.
2)The touch sensitive buttons - mpdern, sexy and what most phones will have in the future... but they really irritated me. I guess most people are different because I just couldn't get used to them and I've got little hands.
Other than that I guess nothing else bothered me. Its nice, small, has all the essentials things I needed and it was lovely to hold but as I said earlier it will be hard to keep in perfect condition. I prefer a phone which I'm not scared to keep on me in case I scratch or damage it. I used to own a Nokia 6230i for a year and loved it. I did tend to drop it alot but it remained sturdy.
So in conclusion I decided to return the E900. I'm not sure which phone to get now, I remain undecided... any ideas let me know. For all of you who have the phone and love it, good for you. It's a shame that I was disappointed by such a brilliant phone.
I upgraded a few days ago from k750i. I work at the link so see alot of phones and this really is the sexiest phone i've seen in a long time, which is the main thing in its favour. Other than that theres a few things where the ericsson beats it:
1) The samsung doesn't show the time in sleep mode
2) Batterys not as good and u haven't got the percentage of battery left like u do on the ericssons, also the screen stays active when charging
3) It doesn't vibrate and ring, probably the most annoying thing
4) The cameras not as good, hasn't got as many options.
5)You can't set an mp3 as a txt tone, not the end of the world
but its got loads of pros, the best thing being for me it supports wma files. The touch sensitive buttons are a bit of a nightmare at first but already im gettin used 2 them and startin 2 love them. The slide, like all samsungs feels really secure. Hope that helps. One thing though, definatly better than the chocolate.
The reason the phone disappeared from the website is because O2 Online didn't get any/enough E900's delivered. Expected to be available from 21st June.
There must be a problem with the Samsung e900, as i went to order it on the o2 website then decided to have a think as i wasn't sure, then a cople of hours later went back on to the sight and it had disappeared. The O2 people have no idea why, I thing that may have a design fault. Didn't want to take the risk to I chose the LG chocolate.
i am thinking of gettin this fone i have one question, does this fone have the same mms and images security code as the d500? if not i dont think i will get it as i think this is the best thing bout my d500.
Excellent phone. Onece you get use to the touch buttons eveything else are great.
My previus phone was a nokia 6230i. This is far more better.
hey guys... great looking phone... it might be too small for my hands... anyway, i'm interested in the > of this phone... can anyone tell me a site where i can find photos taken with this phone???
* to Web Masters... we could realy use a review on this phone!!!
I got the phone and have 2 questions! which may be helpful to others.
1) Can i have it automatically save sent messages?...on my e720 Send and Save was option 1....which meant it was straight forward...they have switched it to option 2 on this phone.
2) Does anyone think the camera would be better by allowing all of the screen as visability...the preview is different from the actual photo taken...this would be fixed if we took the photo sideways using it as a widescreen photo ratio.
ive been warned against getting the samsung e900! this is due mainly to the oversensitivity of the keypad. i had a sony erricson walkman which i didnt like at all cos i culdnt read the msgs the writing was tiny n my eyesites not gud! does ne one have any comments on the LG chocolate in comparison to the samsung and know what the font is like on texts for the LG? THANX
press the left soft key and go to video settings
you need to change it to normal (i think its called) rather than "limit for multimedia message"
on the limit setting you can use your video as wallpaper though or send via mms
I can only appear to record individual video clips lasting around 11 seconds. Is this correct or is there a way whereby I can record video clips of greater individual length. I have 512 memory card installed. Can someone please advise.
Just got this phone as a free upgrade from O2 to use as a social phone. I use a Palm Treo 650 for work and everyday life. The samsung phone is alright. Great screen, camera and sound plus intuitive menus, sexy, great call quality, responsive software, loads of memory. Basically a typical Samsung phone However some major dissapointments.
1.The phone does not have Vibracall (Vibrate & Ring at the same time)
2.The phone's display for some weird reason stays on and stares at me while charging
3.The touch buttons are extremely sensitive and i find myself terminating calls before even making them or going back to home screen while doing something in the menu screen
4.Phone is extremely glossy and will attract fingerprints and scratches if you so much as breathe on it.
5.Takes forever to charge...my treo charges in 2 Hrs Max and has a 4-5 day stand by battery life and up to 2 days of talk time. Samsung has almost 1 day at most.
Overall i have mixed feelings. I might keep it solely as an accessory phone. This is not a phone i can use for everyday life. I might either return it to O2 or sell it and make some money. I'm still undecided.
Overall a good phone with some quirks.....then again aren't all phones or technology at large like that?
