Superb phone.i hav been using this for almost 3months now.very easy to use and a quite robust phone.Sound quality is awsome.Try the orginal headset from samsung and its really awsome.Slider is very comfortable not like nokia or anything cz it uses some spring technology.I LOVE MY PHONE.Samsung Rocks!!!
I just gone one and love it.
I just got the back off, get a nail file, it works wonderfully!
Good Day Guys and Gals
I have the I560 for about a month now,I can easily say that I was surprised.I never like a samsung until I got this one.The features on the phone are way more than adequate for its value.The 3 megapickel camera is great for mostly during the day shots.The flash is bright but not very effective.The phone is very fast and I wonder what processor it uses,can anyone tell me.
The Symbian OS is good,and I tend to like it.The screen size is good,and picture,video and audio quality is excellent.Only downside is that the screen is not that visable in the sunlight.
The GPS works well,it used garmin mobile XT version 5,and works wonders,with a full variety of features,options and settings.
Battery life is good considering screen size and gps.
DONO, 24 Feb 2009Awesome phone. Battery lasts approx 3 days with standard use. With GPS use it will last about ... moreI'm in Melbourne, and I get no trouble with the GPS in my car - even driving through the city. The only place it doesn't get a solid fix is inside buildings. It seems that if there is a clear line of sight to the sky, it picks up the satellites without too much problem (about 1-2 mins for initial fix).
Note: I'm *not* using GPS+ either.
This is a nice phone to have, the symbian os found in Nokia, easy navigator, the big memory and the pictures are clear than the Nokia I used before.
This phone is good, it uses symbian os which is commonly found on Nokia, Sony Ericsson and other phones. I have just bought this one to take over from Sony Ericsson and the phone is so easy to use.
People who have never bought or used this phone shldn't deceive us. Let us the customers talk. Don't hate Samsung, Innovate
i bought me the I560v and honestly i love this fone, especially the fact that i can multi task eg. mxit, call, music etc. and has great sound!& pic quality it has every thing i want and have it now for 3 weeks and No problems. Battery life good i mxit& play music alot and battery doesnt die that easily,so long your Navigator aint running all the time. Cheers
aiyo this phone is sooo hard to use i get so confused
this phone is like one paagla phone.im from the chatsworth by the way outies and stekies.
Awesome phone. Battery lasts approx 3 days with standard use. With GPS use it will last about 12-15hrs.
GPS is awesome , picks up 10-14 satellites in 30 seconds. Big screen, easy and fast operating system (im a symbian fan). overall you can get this from Dick Smith in Australia for $229au with Optus. expect to pay $599au outright.
NOTE : DO NOT use the GPS in a high-rise city it will absolutely not work. Has never worked in Melbourne streets, and took time to reach a satellite on the outskirts.
9 / 10 from me! :D
To answer a few questions:
The battery life is OK, lasts about 2 or 3 days with normal use - the GPS uses a bit of battery though.
The phone comes with no games pre-installed, although being nokia's symbian OS, they are easy to find/install.
The GPS can be turned off by exiting the application properly. If there is a little circular symbol next to the route 66 icon, then the application is still running in the background. Just go into the app and exit via the menus.
My phone came with a 1Gb micro sd card (with adapter for SD). I am currently using an 8Gb micro sd card (sandisk) and it works no problems.
There is no comprehensive user manual included with the phone. Just a basic 'quick start' guide.
The included PC studio software is not compatible with Windows Vista. I had to download the latest version (126.96.36.199) which is.
