Again, its all down to costings - to record video in HD, the processor is under high strain. even though its quick by mobile standards, HD is a different animal. I dont think it would cope recording in super high quality audio also. You would need a bigger processor, so bigger handset, etc. Plus the licences for the higher quality audios would cost a lot more... And all this would be passed onto us, the customer. bearing in mind the current price of some tarrifs from orange etc can you imagine how much this phone would cost if there were no compromises made? Nobody would buy it. So this is the best solution paired up against costs.
i was just wondering why HD has fhuxed up sound..
thats why i said, very high features with very low quality in it..
this fone has no point.
Im pretty sure there will be some video samples knocking around somewhere on the phone, as they were supposed to be hand-in-hand with the launch of the future productions thing. Knowing Symbian they are probs tucked away somewhere nobody will find them!
I think the sound problem is only with recorded video, any downloaded video etc. should have good audio, seen as it has a 5.1 sound engine. Still gotta wait till thurs for mine - gutted! really looking forward to it - the HD thing is bye the bye. I actually like Symbian, and love the quality of Samsung phones, so its a perfect match for me... i am also really short sighted so the big clear screen is a huge selling point!
stefan, 19 May 2009cpu and slow??? that phone is starting very fast and i mean very fast comparing to iPhone 3g.I see that you used iPhone as well? perfect!:)
I need your opinion as I will buy in 1-2 months one of these phones:)
I definitely need a big and Capacitive screen, so the choice is not big for me - iPhone or Omnia HD...
which is better in your opinion if you already used both of them:)
stefan, 19 May 2009Thank u man :-)

really? so there are no preloded short videos or movie trailers? I guess Orange removed them:) I saw on youtube Omnia HD previews some short videos, like Indiana Jones, Transformers movie trailers and so on, so probably Orange removed all this stuff:)
anyway, as far as I understand the hardware/speakers are capable for good/high quality sound, so the problem lies only with manufacturers settings and software, and this should be improved in the nearest future, I hope so, we will see:)

what i want is more from this fone... just that..
coz.. the most important thing in the tch scr fone is the tch scr itself. isnt it??
Theres one thing Samsung got to Realise you have got to Start putting Stronger batteries on your mobiles as charging your phone everyday is very annoying an expensive,the tocco ulta just last a day an this mobile sounds the same,so with the cost of the phone an charging it turns out a very expensive mobile indeed

Since you are not making any valid points and just criticizing the hell of the phone without understanding the difficulty in manufacturing a phone and the constraints with budgets etc, and in many cases stating things that are plain false e.g. oled is worse than tft, you should get a life. Actually the main reason we want the phone is because we want to FILM it and capture it which is the point of this phone.
In closing either suggest and argue and make a case or just go away.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970i just made some point whre this fone needs to be improved...
capacitive - needs more batt..
resistive is better, coz samsung is from south korea..
n it seems u have problem?? i have no problem with u dude..
n seems u wanna start to fight??
get a life.. make peace..
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970hey hey hey..
im not sayiing this fone is worst...
why did u say this?? coz u cant reply me more.. coz ive already made the prove..
plz make some prove 1st before basing to people's comments..
Both capacitive and resistive have pros and cons, although bear in mind both technologies are being continuously developed.
Capacitive pros: sensitive, durable, precise, better finger experience by user, in many cases scratch resistant and multitouch
Resistive pros:Cheap, can sense, force and force magnitude, less energy consumption, thinner, can be used with stylus, gloves etc.
Capacitive cons: Expensive, thicker, need finger or special stylus, not suitable for Asian markets, cannot sense force magnitude
Resistive cons: Not so durable, slight delay in response, need force to register not just touch,can get scratched or damaged by some excessive force, In time loses some responsiveness. As of now there is no commercial application that supports multitouch just some videos demonstrating the ability to do so.
I have owned and iphone, touch hd and omnia and to be honest resistive screens are getting better but the main attraction of capacitive the flow of just touching has not yet been accomplished.
@nal sexer, 19 May 2009Hello friends.
I would like to share a good news with you......i have joined samsung as dy ma... moreHey man, give us some proof.
Please go to the camcorder team and ask them about AMR codec in i8910HD and their progress in implementing AAC encoding.
And it will be good if you post some pictures from your new Samsung office.
Don't take it unkindly, but your message looks fabulously.
shame on this fone..
fully featured fone with low quality in every feature that it has..
of course resistive is better..
it is thinner.
we can touch it using "gloved hands" for example.
capacitive nedds more battery consumption.. that why i said this fone needs more batt..
this is the source for resistive n capacitive.
im not bluffing dudes..
Cool Heart, 19 May 2009im not bashing dude.... i just made some critics.. so, this fone can better.... need to ... moreYou are bashing! Nokia N97 has just 434 mhz. Samsung has dual core 600 mhz. And has a dedicated GPU. So? Where is the slow processor? Amoled is worse than TFT? Are you nuts? Resistive is better than capacitive? You re crazy dude. Seriously stop that stuff of yours, you are clearly bashing! It is clearly and simply a black PR.
Cool Heart, 19 May 2009it sucks, coz...

I would like to share a good news with you......i have joined samsung as dy managing director(design and construction) and i have decided that from now on all samsung phones will sport at least 3.5" oled display with outstanding sunlight visiblity...vga resolution..cheap matarial is now banned only stainless steel,aluminium,carbon fiber and alloys will be used in body and unbreakable glass for display.all sets will sport at least 8gb of internal memory.wifi,agps but NO iR....MOST OF THEM WILL SPORT WINMB 7 /S60/LINUX/ANDROID OS.
And finally we will purchase music chip from SONY INC..aLL cameras will show at least 12million pixels/vga 30fps.....
we have classified 3 catagories
1)multimedia= best screen res,biggest screens with/out touch/multitouch.Best music playback in industry and loudest speakers in industry.bluetooth 3 headsets.best in the business cameras(planning to incorporate real camera modules in phones)
2)business=very large/high res display...customers defined os(worlds first:you want winmob you get it/s60 you get it/google you got it.......all you have to do is connect phone with pc via pc suit and select os ,press security code and install os in 1 of 4 hard disks)business sets will be huge and heavy phones and sport all connectiviry options...
3)challenger series=designed specially to take on rivel phones...we will change spec every fortnight just to match and beat rivels....
So all you se fans now you know why samsung will win the war under MY GUIDENCE.
I WILL ALWAYS BE GREATFUL TO SAmsung
