I hate this phone i got it for 21000 php and after a week its only 15000 in greenhills. My god! They instantly lowered the price after a week... maybe no ones buying it since its a crappy phone... I'll never buy another samsung... come on 3G and HSDPA are the latest technology and it doesnt have it. Too pricy for its features! If it wasnt for beyonce this phone will never sell.... She says "IRREPLACEABLE"?!? Whew! replace your phone right away... I dont want you guys to have the same nightmares that im experiencing with this phone. Its a major loser! Well if you like it then suffer the consequences!!!
Can anyone tell me if this phone is compatable with a 4GB microSD card, I know the spec says max 2GB, but maybe this was the max available when the phone was released?
And whats the latest firmware version?
This Phone SUCKS big time...I'm sorry, but Beyonce's pretty face does'nt do it for me!!
I have this phone for 2 months now...and will soon be selling it for something better...I have'nt experienced any problems with software as yet, and don't intend to...However, If this phone is so MODERN and stuff...why does it not have video calling and why does'nt it have a speaker???...THIS PHONE SUCKS...Samsung...You're going down...
Yes, it is a major problem but I am convinced all these issues are firmware related only. I think the agent said Samsung will change the motherboard, because, he was having nothing to say, since the firmware was already upgraded. I will keep you informed by posting here next week, once I will get back the phone.
the problems u mentioned - i have them too on the F300..song names will appear on phone side but not mp3 side this is because the playlist sometime didn't update..another samsung software bungle...
now changing the motherboard seems like a major problem to me...
Hello, I use the phone since 2 months now and I encountered the same software bugs, i.e randomly removing songs and sometimes the songs are not seen from the mp3 side but seen from the phone side. There is no firmware available on the net. I brought the phone to Samsung service center and they upgraded it the new firmware. And this introduced a new bug, the pics are not displayed anymore and impossible to use the camera for taking videos. I brought it again to Samsung and they said they are going to change the mother board which does not convince me it will solve the issue. It will take one week. To be continued....
i've the F300 for nearly two months now.
- great design - really slim and looks great
- great keypads
- great mp3 sound
- no speaker phone
- overly-sensitive touchpad on mp3 side
- the need to press a key to switch side.
- difficult to use the mp3 controls as u need to take out one end from the cover (which contains a battery)
- sound equaliser are all presets and sounds terrible when turned on.
- memory card sometimes cannot be recognized by the phone. happens quite often.
- software bugs - keeps removing songs from playlist for no reason?????
Does anyone know where to download the latest firmware with all those fixes? thanks.
plz i wanna ask how's z wap(internet) on zis fon???
does it work???on wat screen??
the phone part of the F300 looks like an early 90's design. the music part looks modern but when you flip on the other side it looks crappy early 90's. Samsung is that intentional? LOL!
its like, "hey look at the modern design of the f300 music player," *flips it* "whoopeedo! welcome to 1991" LMAO!
ah man.. i am so confused and can not decide to go for F300 or K810i. i have a question for f300 that how's the speaker quality with the headphones and without headphones. also can we listen to songs as phone is charging in wallet thing? and also can we talk as welll? thanks and help will be apreciated.
the phone has no reselling value here in the philippines... who cares about the dual screen! The sweeping key is just an imitation no originality at all... phone is too heavy for its size when you have the spare battery with it. you cant use your headphone when charging only one port for charging and headphone. Stylish? i dont think so... the phone is full of crap... limited inbox. Whew! Just another trying hard imitation from another brand... Iphone is way better... Ewww!!! trying to imitate ipod but compared to ipod, ipod is still the best... Loser phone... Guys just ko for nokia or SE...
Cam facing keypead but cant do video calls, SMS tone only defaults, cant personalise profile & kaypad locking system works exactly like ipod.
I'm traditionally a nokia person but after using the D820 I'm beginning to love the samsungs especially the black ones.
When the F300 came out I loved it till I saw the screen on the phone side. I'm an avid texter and felt that the 3 line display would just kill me when readin texts. Tha was until I got to handle one in person.
I borrowed a friend's F300 for the night to text it and discovered that when u get a text u can go to options and switch screens so that u read the text on the larger screen behind! That floored me! I was like wow! thats better!
I know its boring to text and send using one side then flip to read using the other side hut hey its wats available so why not use it for those who have it?
the phone look like a beauty.I like the phone but wont buy the phone for my self.
please get your facts right. you do not text using the 'sensitive' sweeping key to text. The F300 does not have much personalization but comparing it to a similar phone such as the W880i, it has better sound quality and originality. This phone is about design and simplicity. Also, on the small-screen side, the keys are so much easier to type with as compared to the W880i.
You can use the earphone while using the pouch, you just need to adjust the cover for the earphone a bit. Anyway, about the sensitivity, the later firmware version of the phone doesn't make it so sensitive.
And yes, you can put a sim card on it.
dont waste ur money on this phone. Just imagine small screen for texting a sensitive sweeping key... Whew!!! Ipod keys are way better!!! You cannot personalize the phone... u cant use the leather case when ur using the earphone since the cover for the earphone and charger is hanging. Whew! what a waste of money! I just got it for a week and nahhh!!! I sell it out!!! Loser phone!!! I'd still prefer SE and Nokia. It lacks features for personalization... Yah i know its slim!!! But... dont waste ur money on this phone...
