Grrr, this phone is perhaps the most irritating of all time. I have spent the last couple of hours just trying to sort out the internet, it has the worst browser I have ever known.
Just to add a homepage you have to create a new profile, it won't display websites properly even BBC, it is impossible to get iplayer.. I can't even get to the download page.
It took ages to get the phone to work with Youtube.
The 3 screen homepage sucks as do the widgets.
I can't stand this phone, previously had an N95 which was the best and now also have an Nokia 5800 which works ok.
Do not, for the love of God get this phone will only end up disapointed.
This phone sucks!!!
The battery power!
The picture quality!
I am not impressed!
I totally DO NOT recommend this phone!
I am not a satisfied customer...
problems with samsung pixon:
1) The hold button does not work and the phone dials numbers in your pocket.
2) The screensaver pictures can not be changed, so you have to put up with pictures of flowers and other crap.
3) There are no widgets and applications available for the phone what so ever.
4) The browser is slow and you could say useless and when you try and read the text it zooms in and out all the time, you can not view the text cause you have to scroll left and right all the time cause the zoom does not work correctly, so you end up not using the browser because it is such a pain to use and very frustrating.
5) The photo browse application does not work.
6) The on screen keyboard is crap. the dictionary does not work, does not store new words and it has a mind of its own.
7) The phone keeps turning itself off, (my phone is not faulty as i have had it repaired 3 times and it still does the same thing, they have even given me a new phone and it still does the same thing)
8) The touchscreen is very unresponsive and sometimes takes 3 or 4 pushes before it selects what you want to.
9) The messages, inbox, email, rss they have a limit and when it is full you have to actually manually delete them to clear up space, which when you have 180 sms in your inbox and you have to scroll right to the bottom and select each sms and select delete to be able to receieve new messages... pathetic.
10) the battery life is terrible, if you do anything with the phone, as in , listen to music, record a video or take a few pictures, the battery is used up pretty much instantly and if you have it full charged by the time you leave in the morning it will run out before you are ready to leave work.
11) Advertised that the phone can read pdf files, this is a half truth, it can open extremely small pdf files with no pictures, anything over 8mb in size and it comes up with an error.
12) practically impossible unless you are an IT expert to upgrade the firmware or even copy java games on to the device.
13) the camera quality is not that great, the video quality is good for a phone, high resolution, but the quality is not that great. just because it is 8mpx does not mean that it is going to be good quality, and i can assure you that a 5mpx cameras that i have seen far better than this samsung pixon.
take my advice, do not buy this phone, it is a waste of money and especially do not buy it on a contract or you will feel ripped off like me. :(
i've been loving samsung all this while....
i bought pixon cause i thought it was cool and stylish.
unfortunately, no wifi..
thought it was good touch screen phone with no wifi.
was quite a shame though.

Other than questions, Is this a Cool Phone?? Oh lastly if so, where can I purchase another cord?? Thanks JerseyGirl..

Super Great phone, after more than a year of using it.
This phone is a LEGEND, the first of a great list from Samsung.
