Brought the phone today for my girlfriend. Its back in the box now shes now having it till christmas but they let me have a play on it in the shop (Phones4u) and its looks superb. Camera looked mint, easy to get around the menus and well i got used to the touch screen buttons after about a minuite!! might get myself one :)
Boyfriend bought me this phone in pink, can't have it till christmas though! :( gutted
This phone is overall a better phone than the KG800 / LG Chocolate.
The camera has a higher megapixelage, and has a flash.
The screen is MUCH more crisp and has a substantially higher resolution.
The nav-pad is NOT a touch pad which is much faster, more tactile, and less irritating to use when navigating menus.
It's a lot smaller than the LG when you hold it in your hands.
Looks nicer. not as much like a rectangle, but has some simple curves.
Has a transflash card slot, unlike some versions of the LG.
I've had an E900 for about 4 months now, since summer. The only regret I have about this phone is that I paid so much for it because I wanted it at launch.
Other than that, I love it. I make fun of my friends who have LG Chocolates because 1. their camera is worse. 2. Their screen has substantially less resolution 3. It has all touch keys which are annoying, on the E900 it's nice to have an actual dpad in the center and 4. CHOCOLATE IS HUGE!
I thought that by the dimensions they would be same volume and chocolate would be thinner. No. it feels way bigger in your hand, and looks much too rectangular.
The touch pad you get used to in a couple days. At the start, you may accidently press the cancel button to exit things, but your thumbs will naturally avoid it later on.
The camera is pretty good quality, I use it a lot. My gripe with it is that you have to hold it really still to take a good picture. The video camera resolution is excellent, and it uses quicktime and no additional codecs are needed. VERY handy.
The fact that the phone only has 2 default themes is also annoying. I'd like to see something other than the black and orange or white and orange menus, even though the black and orange is done quite well. The interface is also quite well done, and the menu system is intuitive and I don't need to look at a manual or play around with settings to do what I want to. An example, the other day I made a phone call to my friend's new cell phone number, and I never wrote it down, so I wanted to replace his old cell phone number in the phonebook with the new one. I just pressed the call button, which goes into call logs, scrolled over it, selected it, and it gave me 3 options, one of which was add new contact and another was "replace existing number." Great features like that.
It's also irritating that I can't plug in real headphones into the headphone jack for a music player. I'd recommend using something else as your music player. The playlists are limited to 4 lists of 30 songs, and the amp isn't very strong.
The ring is substantially loud though, and loading mp3 rings is great.
The built in memory also serves as very useful for saving videos and pictures, so you probably don't even need a transflash card.
Hope this has helped in your decisions guys.
Should I buy this phone? is it acually any good? any advice most welcome, send me an email with 're' as 'to mark'
there is a lock for this fone and also you can use mp3 for alarm and ringtones i personally think this fone is the best on the market at the current time as i have quite a few fones but this one is definately the best.
quality fone, hard to use a first but got the hang of the touch screen after a while.
Does this phone automatically save your sent messages? or do you have to, like on the D900- have to select the save and send option each time?
Hi, bought this phone from Abu Dhabi yesterday for $295 and I think it's amazing. The Mp3 player is good, built in 80mb is good too. Screen quality is as expected from Samsung as they are one of the best in screens. Problem finding out how or why I can't seem to find my messages in the outbox. Camera quality is super for 2mp camera with or without flash. However if you are expecting professional shots, get a Nikon D200. Overall phone size is perfect, only 95grams in weight. Fantastic sound recorder and menu is so easy to navigate. The touch pad can be a curse to get used to but then again, being a nokia user, I have to get used to a lot of things. Yes, the phone does lockup when you close the slider so no buttons can be pressed. You can pre-assign the slider functions. The battery life is super. Better than any Nokia I have used. If I were to buy another phone, which I did, I would recommend the Samsung D900 as well. Fancy and powerful. I checked the specs of D900 vs sony ericsson W850i, they are both the same price, but power wise, the D900 is the most in features and power overall. They are both $438. All prices are in US $dollars. Thanks.
if u slide up to get to the keypad the phone unlock by itself and hide keypad the buttons are lock...i just bought it for my girlfriend yesterday and she likes it nuthin is wrong w it just people make it complicated. they need to learn how to use the phone first and get use to it...
its ma birthday on the 9th and im gettin it in pink wwooooo!!! cant wait
Im not sure bout the touvh pad though with lg choc when licghts go off touch pad doesnt work so you just press a key (e.g.5)
Does this phone have a limit on how much memory you can put into it?
can it handle 1gb? lol im a newbiiee
hey, just ordered this phone yesterday in PINK, just waitin on it arrivin
Really disappointed about the "touch" screen. It turns out that the keys are in fact heat-sensitive. This means that you can accidentally hang up because the area of the "cancel" key is heated up by your ear while you're talking!!! Technology that does NOT work. Apart from that, Samsung menus are still great and the feel is really intuitive.
A great miss.
