judy van der walt, 24 Feb 2010Good Day all
I have my phone for 1year and its a great phone, I love the functions on the pho... moreSorry, but I must beg to differ. I have had my Samsung i560 for about 3 years now, I kid you not, to this very day it still has the original battery it came with, and lats about 5 days straight without so much as a single charge!! Reviews everywhere else that I have read about this phone say the same thing - BRILLIANT battery life! Honestly, the battery Samsing put in this phone deserves a class of it's own, (how about the 'Super Battery'?!? Haha!) :)
I hope this helps anyone out there who might be considering this phone.
Its my 9th phone, have been using it for 2years, it been trouble free and very user freindly , can recommend it without hesitation
i have a samsung i560, its the best phone ever!!
it even fell in a bucket of water, and it still works perfectly fine.... i'm loving it, and i'v hav it for the past year maybe longer it's too bad they discontinued it

I have my phone for 1year and its a great phone, I love the functions on the phone aswell as the design of the phone the only 2 problems i have with this phone is the GPS doesnt work and the batery doesnt last (1 day max if you are lucky )I even bought a new battery but still no luck
i am very pleased with my phone...i love it so much.love its features,they are very helpful
Hey guys, i would like to know if this phone has an application minimiser:D
Got it for a year now. Great audio, but limited output, use Koss or Senn. Use of memory card 8GB is no problem, works also as mass storage, hot swap available. Build quality excellent (still as new), camera pathetic (but I'm used to Zeiss glass ;-), Display under sunlight unusable. GPS sometimes ok, sometimes muted. I bought recently in outlet Nokia LD-4W and connected it, now that's another story -- battery life ok, 8 hours running GPS no problem, every lock under 1 minute. Symbian S60 is nice option, but supplied PC Suite works only with Samsung, for Nokia you have to run another O/S profile with *their* PC Suite (they do not coexists). Sadly no WiFi :-( Sadly some connectors are on side - problem finding car holder. Battery life adequate (about 3 days), but watch for bluetooth connections - I suspect sometimes paired devices sucks out life of battery! Charging when connected to USB (but only on 100mA). Nokias of my friends lost a lot of painting in the meantime, and HW platform is the same, maybe better (see pdadb.net). Opening cover is a story of itself (search posts for "Good luck"). Most usefull postings: PC Suite, removing battery cover -- THANK YOU A LOT.
I have this phone for a year now & it rocks, best I ever had. Its got power mp3, divx player,the works.9/10 ( A little on the heavy side)
Kabza17, 19 Nov 2009Can you minimise one programme and open another programme, like Nokia phones do?yes, hold down the button below the left softkey (the one which has the two squares) - this opens the program multitasking viewer.

The phone is rather good hardware wise, although the Symbian OS is one of my big gripes.
First of all, it isn't the easiest beasty to work with, as it is very different to other phone operating systems.
The OS has major glitches in it, such as not searching for files when you want to, opening the wrong menu option, annoying things like that.
There is no delete all function for the SMSs, so if you recieve a lot like me, and find yourself needing to delete all of them, you will be there for a while doing that.
The phone also has the problem of never deactivating its off button, so if it is in your pocket, and accidently hits something, the phone will turn off, regardless if the buttons are locked.
The battery case is difficult to remove at first, but wears down once you have taken it off a few times.
Also some of my files have corrupted while being on this phone, and I never unsafely removed the phone from the computer.
It also has a tendency to run out of RAM rather quickly, so you will be rebooting the phone quite often.
Other than that, the camera is good, it has a good screen size, the keypad is the best that I have ever used, and the GPS is extremely accurate, but not exactly fast for finding a satellite.
I would possibly buy another Samsung, but not with the Symbian OS
