hi i'm thinking about getting this phone on a contract, after reading countless reviews i have decided against it, i was looking for the phone to have an okay camera, games, mp3 ringtones, mp3 msg tones and most important a good battery, but after reading reviews i have decided against it as it has none of the things i am looking for.
okay everybody i was about to get this f300 so off i went to the shop and my first question was does this phone have mixit and the answer is NO NO NO , you can not even get some one profeesional to put it on for you. It is a 2 in 1 as we all know hense the price of the phone, but the music side is great but the phone side is average it has no colour screen and no games, calculater ect so if you want a very simple phone with no mix it , but a very attractive looking phone with a high teck music system then this is ideal for you it looks so nice though i dont know why they didnt make it colour phone with mixit...ediots haha!! ENJOY
um i am about to get this phone, it looks really coo but can you get mixit surely it is possible?
irritating phone, no calculator...not straight forward when interfacing it with your computer. small screen ok but too much hassle to flip it constantly to big screen.
all in all....the novelty wears off very fast
Awful phone, I seriously do not recommend it.
A bad creation by Samsung who usually produce good quality.
The camera is awful.
Along with the use of the two screens - the smaller screen is just terrible to work with.
Not good at all.
I hated it straight away.
It got worse!
I have an f300 for a month now
for 350 USD in the Philippines(converted php to usd)
-It has a loudspearker but not as loud as the SE or the nokia, but very decent
-You can play movies on full screen,
can also play dvd format(vob to mpg to mp4 or 3gp)
-MP3 files can be set as ringtones only if the mp3 is saved on the fone not on the memory card.cannot set mp3 as the alarm for the alarm clock
-Loudness of the loudspeaker could be really loud dpending on the setting of the mp3/mp4 (can be set on the PC studio)
-Cannot play music while browsing through images
-can play music while on wap,mms,others..
-f300 is worth the money than f500
THis phone is good its not bad i own 1 of these though you cant set ur mp3 as a ringtone this is what sucks about it But sthill a very good phone
Wery puoor phone with no JAVA and no possibilities to display movie on big screen.
Hard to arrange contacts and sms`s on small screen,
not worth mony
Does the F300 play SMAF MMF files? or is it only midi? 64 voices poly sounds like the SMAF MA-5 (YMU765) but I've found no confirmation on it. Is there a list on chips inside the phone? I wish GSMA would specify type of polyphony, or which chip :/
ok, today about 16.00 the first beep
some minutes later the second one happened
at19.00 the phone was off.
and i needed it!
again, is it such a problem to warn the user
let say 10-20 hrs before the battery dies?
ok, a2dp: recharging. activating bluetooth (6+ keystrokes!! depending on the setting of the hot-keys).
pairing with motorola s9. (another 3-5 keystrokes)
pressing play on the headphone. nothing. phone
display says: this not allowed in phone mode.
taking the phone, turning it...
pressing a button on the phone in order to switch to the media player site. pressing play on the phones again. now phone asks if i allow it to play through the headphones. yes. (this was already keystroke nr. maybe 15?? or 20???) ok, connected.
finally listening to music, started by the üplay button on the headphones! listening to music. stopping it through the headphone. 20 min later headphones and phone ring. pressing the Accept button on the headphones. connection lost. need to go to the other room, find the phone, accept the call again, brrrrrrr, and! no way to switch back to the headset mode! why did i invest 120 into the wireless headphones if i cannot use them with this "perfect" phone?
so, guys, the phone is for sell,
i am in austria, bringing it to hu, cz, sk is not a problem. mail me: mrn-at-post-cz
c'mon guys, do not try to convince people that this phone has a loudspeaker mode if it does NOt! ok?!?
. radio does not work in offline mode! must be a joke
. pressing PLAY on a stereo BT headset first displays a message on the little screen saying that this is not allowed in phone mode. okej, switching to MM mode: pressign PLAY again: the phone asks a question if it is allowed to play through the BT headset!! Was not it paired a min ago????
. ok, sometimes you need to re-send the music to the BT headset even you never switched back listening on the phone....
. btw, yeah, it plays music in loudspeaker mode, but NO option in the option menu to make phone calls loud. maybe no echo canceller implemented?
. what else: listening to music through the headphones, pressing accidentally the Phone/Player button JUST exits immediately the playback without asking!!!!!! maaaaan!
. no playback (not even MP3) while checking the calendar, etc.... simply you cannot use the phone side while playing
. no calculator
. sometimes does not accept my tmobile card, while the old SE does!!
I think that samsung has outdone itself with this fone oh God I love it 2 bits thank you samsung...
It does have loudspeaker but it's not a soft key it's in options when you make a phone call click right soft key for option and hit okay for turn on speaker. it there but wierd to get to
what about loudspeaker guys???????
this fone does not seam to support loudspeaker, how is that possible these days??????
If Im mistaken someone please help me!!!!!
