great phone.. its really amazing.. it is suit for well educated people.. very elegant Go samsung..
I purchased this phone today. I have already discovered some faults with the software, whilst playing with the phone at work.
The first fault is with the camera settings. When you initially powerup the phone and change the camera settings you are able to turn anti-shake on. When i powercycled the phone and checked the settings it was set to off. The anti-shake option is then greyed out and you are not able to scroll up on it. Also when you try and turn on 'wide dynamic range' and save it. It does not retain the setting. Factory reset does not solve the issue.
The camera on this phone is ordinary. It does not perform well in low lights. As other have mentioned pictures taken looks ok when viewing it on the phone, as soon as you take the picture it turns out dark and blurry. The xenon flash also makes the item darker in low light or too bright close up. My previous 3.2M camera phones have taken better pictures!
Hopefully i can get a replacement handset or an exchange first thing in the morning.....
On the upside. I think this phone is not too bulky. It's just the right size, it fits well on one hand. easy to operate. It also looks professional.

On the upside though I could see my reflection in it so it doubles as a mirror so i guess one less thing a girl has to carry in her bag.

Anonymous, 01 Jun 2008I know most WiFis are blocked with passwords and you cannot use it unless you are in an unsecu... moreHSDPA is just the speed of the internet... It's faster than 3G it has nothing to do with wifi... Wifi is wireless internet
I know most WiFis are blocked with passwords and you cannot use it unless you are in an unsecured spot (pls correct me if I am wrong) and you cannot connect your phone if it is on a secured spot because you always asked for a password. So HSPDA is the best because you can always use your phone with fast connection unlike WiFi, maybe you are paying HSPDA with this feature but you pay less because it is fast (HSPDA is available on a specific countries). So could you identify between the difference from Wifi and HSPDA?
