What's the different with my i780??? I think there is no big different between that...
So far, the Epix is one of the best phones I have ever owned and I was a previous iPhone owner! So much about this phone is Epic that they rebranded the name to Epix for signifying that it is epic on more than one level. It has everything you could ever need! Quad-Band GSM World Phone (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) Wi-Fi, HSDPA US 3G, Bluetooth 2.0+A2DP, a 624MHz Marvell 32-Bit Processor, 150MB of RAM, 75MB free after booting, 2.55" Touchscreen, full QWERTY Keyboard, Optical Mouse, GPS with A-GPS support, an 1800mAh battery(!), a 2MP Camera with Video support and not to mention the Windows Mobile 6.5 update which is being released for this phone, not counting the un-official one that has already been released. The phone is a steal at around $100 used and only an extra $3-$5 to unlock it if needed!
1800mah?? is it for real?? wow!! better than my i780,,,with only 1480mah,,,can I buy the battery n put it to my I780...? I wonder,,
I am looking to see what other people have experienced with the i907. I am wondering why everyone is talking about the i780. Don't you have another string for that phone? I have three of these i907's and as a small businessman I have bought 200+ phones over the last 31 years (first cell phone was mounted in my truck in Dallas in 1978 - I even remember the brand - Novatell) While I love Samsungs TV line - I have a 67" Samsung that's great, I have to say this is the very worst phone I've ever had. Not just by a hair over the second worse phone, but by magnitudes. In fact it is the wost, most undependable, buggy and frustrating piece of electronics of any kind that I've had. Understand that we have three of these and they all do the same things. Without going into detail I can tell you that any given button of command may or may not work or may not consistently do the same thing. The ringer may work and then it may not. I have yet to figure out how to answer calls every time without hanging up on people. I hit the answer button on screen - it hags up. Next call I try the green hard fixed button - it hangs up. They call again this time it works. The browser works sometimes and sometimes not. The GPS works sometimes but not too often. Calling out is pretty good In 10 tries at least 7 ring through. The simplest most basic usability features aren't there - for instance: As you look down your email list you want to select and delete a junk email. On a Blackberry I would roll down to the email in the list and delete it. With the i907 you have to open it and then delete it. It sounds minor but this is an expensive phone whose product team seems to have been smoking something very expensive. I could tell you of 20 different things that sometimes work and then sometimes don't on this phone. It is just a really horrible phone. If you are one of the people I see on the Samsung site that say its wonderful:) well I will sell you three at a big discount.
Smoke signals are much more reliable. Did I mention that even when it is locked it arbitrarily calls my mother in law. Holy crap - my mother in law - i907 is the phone from hell.
evo here from jamaica, mi luv my i780 there is no other samsung to replace this one right now. at work my i780 makes the black berry bold n others look not so smart. I am an IT "freak" and my i780 complements me. stick to what you have until something "mad" touch di road. lata peeps.
Is this basically an i780 for the American Market? I have an i780 and it looks almost identical to this, except for the carrier logo and colour.
lack of ring time bring the phone down so low. i do not advise anyone get this phone til WM 6.5 come out
Kosta - Serbia, 21 Jul 2009Is this smartphone for USA market, or it can work in Europe????HSDPA 2100 It should work in Europe. See if you phone service runs on 3g HSDPA 2100

just bought this phone b/c i wasnted a good smart phone and since att dosn't carry a sony ericsson smart phone this seemed to be the best choice. faster processer than the iphone 3g s, good battery life, runs the best web browser aka skyfire. nice camera. good sturdy and quality design dosn't activate in pocket if you let the screen go off. runs my msn mail like a charm. only wish the speakers where a little louder like the ones on my sonys. despite what people say about the keypad i like the stiffer keys feel higher quality and arn't bumped easily.
I've had the Epix for 2 months now and its a decent phone. I'm on T-mobiles Network so i can't use its 3g but processing speed on Edge is still decent. One of the things i dont like is the touch screen. It works decently but sometimes you might need to press down a little harder than you would with other touch screen phones. My Treo 750's screen was def. easier to use. WM 6.1 runs pretty well on the epix's fast processor. There's hardly any lag even when your multitasking.
I'm a big WM phone but WM is really getting outdated. Using the scroll bars to scroll gets pretty annoying with the epix's fair touch screen. WM 6.5 is soon to be out, i just hope the hacked version will run smoothly on the Epix.
The phone isnt that much better than the blackjack 2. I really like that it has wifi. All in all this phone is a great phone to get if you do not have the blackjack 2.
I've had the phone about 3 weeks. Trying to find a different one. The keyboard is difficult to use because of their shape and feel
chaseprenger, 08 Mar 2009quick question... is it easy to lock the phone so nothing is pushed while it's in your pocket?... moreyes it cn be...just like other phones it has a security..just check it on the lock settings..
quick question... is it easy to lock the phone so nothing is pushed while it's in your pocket? i'm planning on buying this phone tomorrow...
Blq, 26 Jan 2009Other words: Samsung i780 with foolish name, suggesting its superiority over i900 Omnia!? w... morehey, whats in a name?? read the specs and decide which is good! besides, the phone companies are on the brink of running out of catchy names!! ;)
Anonymous, 21 Feb 2009Is it possible to use the Pocket Office to actually create documents without having purchased ... moresince it has 'Pocket Office', you can definitely edit/create documents.. if it was only for viewing purpose, then the description would have said that it has 'Document Viewer'. the specs looks pretty good.. go for it!
Is it possible to use the Pocket Office to actually create documents without having purchased the software? Or is it just meant for viewing documents on the phone?
Wish people would stop saying this is an E71 copy...cause it isnt. The two phones are different in many ways. Also....the EPIX is a NEW updated version of the i780 and i788, simply put one is tri band and runs WMPE 6.0 while the other runs WMPE 6.1...The EPIX runs a different A-GPS capable GPS chip than the older one.
Why do people question the screen quality and the Media capabilities, there are stacks of people who couldnt give a rats fat bum about dodgy phone cam specs and watching an AVI file, all I want is a portable modem, a note taker, something that can run Tom Tom Nav and take and recieve all my calls...It doesn't need to play 5.1 sound and HD video on a 2.5" screen....I have a TV and home theater for that.
Seriously...it's a business phone, not a toy for watching Family Guy on on the way to work, thats why the gimmicky iPhone was invented.
Who gives two cents over Nokia's E71 anyway...it's Symbian powered.
Simply put, this is a great phone, kept to a simple yet effective business model. Well done Samsung, just ditch the AT&T exclusive release and start selling it world wide....
