hey does anyone know if you can charge this phone n listen to music with ear phones at the same time??? please help!!And one more thing... is the battery really crap??
Have had this phone for 6 months now... reading through all the comments about the mp3 and camera and keypad that on one likes why bother buying it.... you can buy a camera, MP3 player and yes keypad is sensitive but once got used to it's fine.....my only gripe is the fact that where I live i don't get good reception and must admit this isn't very good for that... but aside from that you all have to ask yourself can you make a call and text if the answer is yes get it!.... I think it's a great little phone and have had no problems with it....
for those who r complainting ... its ur own problem cuz u didnt do research b4 u decide to buy dis phone ...
every phone has Pros and Cons .. if u cant accept, y r u still go for it ???
pls dont complaint bt gv ur opinions and advises.
to turn off the keypad tone without press #
setting - sound settings - keypad tone - off
to minimise the music player
applications - music player - settings - music players overrides other sounds - on
after that u can do watever u want, with the music on. to turn off jt press C then chose turn off music player.
about the tounchpad, its a design and if u think u cant get used to it, then pls dont buy dis phone ...
abt the photo's quality ... depends on setting n how u took the pic ... N its nt a camera, pls dont confuse with it ...
D900 and E900??
jt go for the one u like most ... u r using tat phone nt others ...
just for the record bob,
1). there are multiple slide tones you can set, and if you don't like any of them and don't want to be "pretentious" you can turn it off.
2). you're right that you cant go "down down select" on this phone. but the menu is also numbered 1 to 9, so instead of clicking "down down select", you can just click "menu" and then "7"
oh hey guys,nice work with the reviews & all but I still have some Questions to ask you,I want to buy the phone mainly for it's suport of memory card & mp3 player suport & of course for it's design...but apart from these I want my phone to suport animated wallpapers,acceptable loudspeaker to hear my songs play & some durability in time cose I've done a lot to my past phones...another question is that the mobile comes in package with an data cable or a mem card...I saw many photos of "in the package" but in france it comes with USB cable & in some I don't know what country it doesn't...so,the main question is,users from all around,do you recomend me this phone if I'm an declared fashion junkie & also an averege joe when it comes to functions?I wait your Q&A & I thank you in advance!
hya i got this fwn a week ago n i was well chuffed with it. But i Had only used it for a hour or so n da battery went. Also it damages quite easily. when it drops the bak falls ot it n da battery falls out. which can tend to be quite annoying. b4 this fwn i had the sony ericcson k750i which was brill 4 da camera but the e900 is'nt the best i have to say. After u hav fully zoomed in the picture goes a bit blurry. Also playing music isn't very loud and 4 a teenager like me it is one of the most essentails. Also the head phones u get with it are HUMUNGOUS.And the cancel pad is very annoying because the directional pad is soo small when u press up or right u press the cancel button n cancel everything that u have been on. So all in all i wud say tht this fone is quite poor. I am considering of buying the lg k800
i have this phone its wkd i like the shape and the size of it it looks nicer than the d900 just not got as good camera on it!!
i got this fone 4 xmas and its totally wkd great camera, amazing colour screen!!!!!! just a brilliant fone Newcastle United 4 LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Not bad at all! i am using it from 2 months n very happy with its performance. excellent design. camera is gud. music player is not loud but gud enough for phone. slide is quite ordinary, could hv been made much better. battery life is very short though. but as nothing is perfect, its quite close to it. no regrets at all for buying this product.
I had this phone for a week. I wanted something small and stylish to replace my 8850 and this was the closest thing to hit the market in a long time. It looks discreet yet smart and stylish, and, like the 8850, never annoyed me when clipped on my belt. *However*, it's nowhere near as usable as I'd hoped. You can't text with it one-handed because the keypad is too near the bottom, eg., you can't reach xyz without dropping it ( a flaw with sliders), and the buttons aren't tactile enough to feel where they are (no I'm not blind). The menu system, is a pain; as other people have mentioned, the phone remembers what you used in the menu last time and defaults to those selections, which means you can't do for example 'menu down down select' (and get the same thing every time) like on a nokia, no, you have to *read* what's on the screen to see if you have to go up or down to get what you want and you'll never remember what options you selected half an hour ago. As I said, a complete pain.
Onto the 'touch' buttons. 1) you can't use the phone in a case as the heat takes time to pass through, impractical. 2) as someone else already mentioned, it's too easy to cancel what you were doing, in my case because my hot fingers were too close to the button. Again, like the menu system, great idea, but a complete pain.
Onto the camera, again, already said, looks great while on the screen, but transferred to PC, doesn't look good. Having said that, using the flash as a torch was quite handy sometimes.
If I remember rightly, the phone only has one external socket for charge/headphone/cable link, which means you can't charge it and use the headset on a call at the same time, and additionally, plugging it in was always fiddly.
Nice choice of colours for the menu's and dialling, but barely customisable. As for the sound it makes when opening it up, if you're sitting in a public place you're just gonna have 'pretentious' written all over you. Would be nice to change it to something more subtle, but (if I remember rightly)...you can't! It's either on or off, no other choice.
Physically, this was a really well designed phone for looks and appeal, but unfortunately very let down by lack of foresight on practicality and even more so by software design and lack of customisation. Shame, so near yet so far.
blah this sucks
all the bad reviews
but since i see that it comes in pink and orange those are cool colors
im still deciding
I jus bought a samsung E908 - Hong Kong distributable version of 900, its awesome, you get used to it, then everything is smooth running.
Just got this phone. I'm impressed overall - here's some comments:
I love the shiny black look and it's nice and small with a loop to hang a charm from.
You can add your own call and message tones and you can make the phone make a noise (if you want) when you slide it open, press a key, etc (you can silence these too!)
The heat sensitive buttons look funky, but they can be a little slow and a little too easy to knock - I haven't lost text messages but I have accidentally tried to exit a game - but it's ok coz you're asked if you really wanna quite so you can just cancel that.
I like to personalise my menu colours but you can only choose from white or black on this one. You can alter the font, size and colour of the text when you're dialling a number, but I'd rather be able to change the menus coz I spend far more time looking at those than dialling numbers that aren't in my phonebook! I was quite disappointed with this feature, but the other features are impressive.
I'm with Virgin and at the mo I can't download pics or tunes from them or order some games, but you can add your own edited tunes and pics from your computer.
I asked for a reliable phone and this one (and the D800) were recommended - after having a very dodgy Motorola A1000 reliability was everything!
Angelo, thank you for the most useful review i have ever read, it had made me certain as to buying this phone
Hi, I will write a mini review on this e900. I had this phone for 5 months now. Before actually buying this phone, I read almost everything I could find on the web. Many people complain about this phone, but I will make some things clear to all of you.
This phone is really stylish and the finish is really nice. The touch keys have a bright white light and are really well designed. The overall phone is pretty small and thin. It stays perfectly in your pants and must say it is pretty durable. Donít take it and throw it on the wall, but letís just say if it falls once or twice itís not going to blow a part.
For the display, the screen is really impressive. The colors are rich and the image is really nicely displayed. So far, one of the best displays I have seen. You can customize the fonts and size.
Now for the camera, itís on the back of the phone with a small flash (that can also be used as a flash light). The 2mp Camera is pretty good. The quality is superb on the display of the phone, but when showing on a computer screen, it doesnít look that good. Seems as if it was optimized for the phone display, or maybe I am too picky because my friend is a photographer. The good thing about the camera is that what you see when you are about to take the picture and when you capture the picture is not the same thing. It actually adjusts the brightness and contrast on the final result; witch makes the image of better quality. A bad thing about the camera is that it does not have auto focus and it may take up to 5 sec without moving to actually capture the picture, so you have to be patient. For the video, itís pretty good with ok sound, but if you are so much picky on recording, get yourself a real camera!!!
About the touch pad, I repeatÖtouch pad and not touch screen (some people make this mistake) is not that sensitive. In my case, the end button is really sensitive, but other then that itís ok. After 1 or 2h of playing around you will get use to it.
The navigation is pretty simple and the phone actually saves the path of your last sub menu. In other words, if you go into settings/sound/ring tones, well when you go back in the menu, settings will be highlighted, and if you selected, sound will be highlighted and so on. Itís a good feature to actually test your phone really fast (change screensaver :D)
The batteries are ok, around 3h, but you can buy a seconde one on eBay and then you are good to go
In conclusion, this has been one of my best phones. Really nice looking phone with great features! Easy synchronisation with pc! The sound on the speaker is so so (there is no bass), and the sound on ear phones is ok (if you buy a converter to put your ear buds instead of the cheap ear phones it comes with). I donít recommend this phone to people that donít take care of there things and that donít like new technologies. Also, if you have football player fingers, it might be a lil small for you.
I actually hope that this will help you guys to take a decision. My advice: get the phone; it is well worth the price.
