CJ, 20 Jul 2008Could you manage to get a G600 in Canada?With a Rogers connection??Nope but I found a site selling unlocked G600 unit for $349.99 complete with 1GB Sandisk, Dual Stereo Bluetooth, Samsung Headset, PC cable and Charger... not a bad deal : )
I was going to buy the LG Orsey, which is slightly cheaper than the g600. However, i would only be able to buy it from phones4u which i didnt really want to do (they have a bit of a bad reputation) so i brought the samsung g600 instead. I have to say, i am very pleased with this phone. The camera quality is great, at night it produces reasnobally good pictures, during the daylight, they are fantastic. The mp3 player is very good and sound quality is great. I particularly like the fact that you can create your own themes, this is something i really like. Design wise its very stylish. The screen is clear and very colorful, and battery life is good too. I agree with the fact that this phone can only hold a 2gb memory card, i do have a 2gb card in the phone and it does slow the phone down a bit, dread to think how slow it would go if a 4gb card was inserted (if it worked at all). Another thing i dislike about the phone is the light sensor for the screen, sometimes it can get a bit erattic and change the screen's brightness from dark to light constantly in certain situations which can be quite annoying. However, this is a great little phone.
1...How many msg can g600 save?
2...and does this phone have a group/distrubution list feature?
3....and can you personalize a msg tone for each person in your phonebook?
natalie, 26 Jul 2008what is the function of the circle at the left side on top side?what do you meanm, on the camera viewfinder, is it?
This one is one of the best phones that I ever used. The battery is just rite, all the functions that it carries are fun and easy to use. To top it all off, the 5mp camera works great for diff shots(the downside of this is that u gotta keep your hand stable while shooting otherwise some shots will be rather blurry). Overall, its a great phone for a decent price!
mike, 24 Jul 2008hey, just wanna know if this phone can support 4 gb hc mcrosd card? some said that it does, we... moresorry mike, but it only holds a micro sd 2 gig card, not 4! doesnt support any higher than 2. hope this helped!
somebody help me..i can't install games and applications!
i transfered a jad file on the Other Files menu in the my files of the phone memory, options, then install, but in said invalid jad file?
Nobita, 24 Jul 2008what options to choose for 30fps cif? i tried lowering the resolution but fps doesnt seem to i... moreforgot to say, matrix exposure is a lot better in all areas because it calculates the exposure compensation on different areas of the picture, thus giving a more equal exposure distribution.
matrix or evaluative metering
center-weighted or average metering
spot or partial metering.
Nobita, 24 Jul 2008what options to choose for 30fps cif? i tried lowering the resolution but fps doesnt seem to i... morego out on a sunny day, shot a vga and a cif reso video and see the difference, however, videos taken on dim subjects will probably lessen the frame rate.
best settings for the cam is the highest resolution, automatic white balance and exposure, but you'll find pics better if white balance is set to fluorescent. don't use the flash on if your subject is well lit because it will just make the whole pic dimmer, rather set it to automatic also.
have a steady hands when taking dim pics because, as you have said, it will blur.
if you want to take a quick shot of the picture then just press the center button of the d-pad, if you wanted it be focused then use the half shutter.
remember that your subject placed at the center (the 2 bracket located at the center of the camera viewfinder) is more likely to be focused.
exposure metering means the distribution of exposure of your subject, use matrix for equal distribution of exposure on the entire picture, spot means calculating the exposure on a small spot located at the center of the picture, thus ignoring to calculate the exposure on its surroundings. while on center-weighted, it is mostly used for taking pics on a bright sky against a dimmer/darker landscape, mostly, center-weighted is much used as default. but it'll surely depends on the subject/s.
does anyone know if you can do something in camera options so your pics wouldnt be so blurry... it is getting on my nerves when i am taking a photo i move my hand for just a little bit and the pic ends up really blurred. thank you in advance...
micky, 24 Jul 2008i believe that your concerns with the received broken sms arent to be blamed on the cellphone.... moreim afraid not. the broken messages are really to blame on the phone. I use 2 phones at a time so i can have better economy between different company calls/messages. I just changed back the G600 to the one i use less sms and my old nokia to the one that i ses more sms....and the nokia receives all sms perfectly including the long ones. The only problem with the G600 are the long sms (more than a full screen). Other wise it works great too. Maybe with firmware updating it can be solved?

whats the best setting for the cam? and whats the use of "exposure metering" option.
also im comparing it to a digicam since its one of the reasons why i bought this phone.
micky, 24 Jul 2008i believe that your concerns with the received broken sms arent to be blamed on the cellphone.... moreg600 is around php 10500-12500 depending on the warranty and card included.
dont buy this phone on malls, i went to smnorth 3weeks ago and found a g600 with a price tag of php16000!!!
i bought this phone about three weeks ago, the hone is great, sturdy body, metal finishings, screen glass kinda sensitive to scratches so i bought a screen protector.
camera is good, although my recent samsung Z560 pics sizes rage from 400-900kb but this phone took pics amounting only 300-600kb in size, meaning it does not catch so much of the detail even if its a 5mpixel, although its still great. iso to 800 is also helpful on night shots, led is super bright, although you really have to chose still subjects because moving subjects create blurrs. rather use it for night time landscapes.
video recording is 15fps on vga resolution, 30fps on cif, and can directly be stored on the memory card. watching it on fullscreen is great, just play the video on normal screen and quickly press the hash/number sign(#) key.
pictures taken and defaultly saved on the phone memory can be viewed on fullscreen, but a bit cropped. saved directly on the memory card, no hope in full screen viewing.
creating themes is also great, varying the each and every color, only 10 themes are alowed to be stored, and you can't create any further.
speaker is not that loud but still, well, loud.
the light sensor works fine, but i modified the settings of the display brightes to steady 5. because viewing bright screens on night time is great.
its the only phone, i guess, that offers radio recording, and its so cool, recorded files are saved as mp3 of FM quality.
the battery works fine, although if you keep on using the camera with the flash, it'll drain it quickly, but don't bother, switch it off for some minutes, switch it on again and you'll have your battery bars back.
for those who often travels, i suggest you buy an extra extended battery and you won't miss perfect moments.
that's for now. enjoy your phone, and don't ever compare it to gadgets like digicams and the like 'coz this is a phone.bye
hey, just wanna know if this phone can support 4 gb hc mcrosd card? some said that it does, well for me, i bought a 4gb card but when i go to memory status>memort card,it doesnt show any details about it, only showing 0mb?
