Very satisfied with M8800 pixon.
camera 8,0mpix is enough good to replace your old photocamera. Video is 720x480pix in dvd quality + divx, MP4, 3gp reproduction.
very good watching office documents like word, excel. pdf on 3,2inch huge display. Zooming, rotating, panning...ok
Phone size is very handy 107x55x13-15mm, 120g.
Battery life with internet surfing lasts 2days; without internet, only calls and messaging 3-4 days (Experience).
Install Java Opera Mini and really enjoy internet.
Photo browser is very good.
Phone is loud enough in earpiece , loudspeaker or spreakerphone. Ringing also loud enough. I have 5/7 or 6/7 ringtones without vibracall.
Profiles normal, vibra, silent, outdoor etc.
I have memory card microSD 4GB without problems.
Thios is multimedia phone+camera+office viewer+internet+email(downloadlimit is 5MB/E-mail...good enough, best samsung in no-smathphone class).
Important thing...very very simple to use, to type messaging ABC+QWERTZ+Handwriting with finger/nail (without stylus)+VERY IMPORTANT vibra feedback during typing, adjustable 1-7!!
Music recogniser is good also.
+ a lot of good applications (some are downloadable MORE WIDGETS) and functions (Video editor, drawing, Java games, google, gmail...)
Sunlight legibility, on the direct sunlight is bad :(
but indoor is perfect color vibrant 10+
I was Mokia and Sonxer. user too but samsung really is No.1. I was also samsung user of Sgh-2400, A100, E700, E800, D500, D600, D900, G600, U900v and last 2 months M8800. Best phones ever!!!
I bought this phone for 2 months, this is a very good camera phone, it takes good pictures and videos, yap... and the next good thing is sms, very easy to type msg and bigger in sms text size, other than these, others are very common, nothing special.
I used PDA phone like HP,O2,Dopod and HTC for many years, I bought this phone because I need to have a good camera phone for my music lesson and to take some street performance, if you think 3.2 - 5MP is more than enough, don't waste $$$ to take this phone, if you like to install games, software, don't take this phone. if you need GPS, don't take this phone (very troublesome), if you need WIFI, don't take this phone. This phone can install java games, but it may not be the same "size" as you see online.
Think twice before you buy.
you would be stupid to buy this phone on 18 month contract, the software is not finished and lacks polish.
rather wait and buy the omnia hd .
i have a question: does anybody install like a tomtom on the pixon? and does it works? because there is a gps in the mobile, but i hearded some bad feedback about the gps.

Have had the pixon for exactly a week now. HAs been good in some while being pathetic in others.
However, I wanted to share about a nasty jar the phone gave last nite. The samsung website, manual & box all say the phone can take 8gb micro sd.
so, i ordered a 8gb off ebay which i got in my hand sterday. I filled it up with 375 mp3s,10 pics & around 20 divx files, which all added upto 6gb. Put it into my phone & all hell broke loose!!! The phone just went awry & kept restarting..i had shut it off by yanking off battery...reduced the stuff to around 4gb...nope...nothing happening...same trouble..so brought it down to 3.25gb & then it FINALLY WORKED...then i went through playing files,looked likethere were no probs..until i had an issue with one of my mp3 files.it just froze & kept restarting again...so then somehow manged to delet the file & then kept playing mp3s all day long with no issues.
I wanted to ask if others had faced this issue...phone seems to very good on all other aspects...please share if anyone else had memory probs.
Just a querie does any body know weather thsi phone can download mxit? it's a java application.. from what i've read it won't be able to.. and that is some major ass BUll$^!* so please just confirm that it won't or will be able to download a java app
the camera is great! somthin like real 8MP digcam! so fashionable! the widgets are great! "FULL TOUCH" screen works well! fast enough in comparison with Symbian Cells! TOTALLY GREAT! dont doubt buy it

But it is just one or two years since Samsung let you customize the message tones, so i guess it takes them a long time to understand what people want.

Or else you can go for nokia N97.let the phones come in market and see their features, compare and then go for the phone which suits your taste.
anon32135468tr, 13 May 2009on wat os does this phone run windows or symbian???? plz let me know asapit has got samsung's proprietary operating system known as touch wiz system. This is ridiculous that samsung has kept it closed and not open to other people to make softwares for it as symbian, windows or even newly launched adroid system has got that flexibility.shame samsung.
Today my pixopn came up with a box that states 'no event' that I cannot get rid of. I can move it to the bottom of the screen but there is no option to get rid of it. This is annoying.
Has anybody else come across this?
so which is better? pixon or renoir? my fren's renoir tend to lag when typing message.. does that happen to pixon ?
Zealot, 14 May 2009On my Pixon I can only save 250 sms in my inboxso this phone we cant access to the net rite?
