I have just bought this phone and spent 2 hours with it.
Stylus is not attached inside the device so will not get used.
you can not change the look of the menu or the icons.
problems, web browser is limited. some youtube vids don't work, not 100% full browser like opera.
absolutely no applications available at time of purchase.
annoying 8 pictures set as system files that are used when you put the phone on lock mode, flowers and other such pictures, so you can not disable this.
you can not read the file system of the phone through media transfer mode you have to use the software included with the phone. memory cards only on the media transfer mode.
you can not customize the widgit bar, you can not remove icons or applications and you can not change the icons, from i have found so far. you can only move them around.
the touch screen is very responsive and the interface is fast.
camera is great
plays xvid and divx movies very well
downloaded google maps and that works great as well.
document viewer works (but not on large pdfs)
so it might sound like i am unhappy with my purchase but i am not, looking at the other touch screen phones available this had what i was looking for in a device, but if they just fixed a few things it would be perfect.
I've looked online and read some reviews and i think i'm going to get the pixon. I'm bascally looking for a good camera and something that will fit in my pocket.
Please give me some ideas if you know of any better phones or think i'm making a mistake buying this one.
This is an awsom phone. its giving good battery backup and Its display is outstandig
Does anybody know how to change the screensaver on this phone?? NOT THE WALLPAPER, but the screensavers that come up when the touch screen is locked. They alternate every few seconds and are set as pictures of flowers and bubbles - I have even gone as far as calling Samsung to see how it can be done and they are telling me that (as silly as it sounds) its not possible. SURELY there must be a way. Hopefully one of you will be able to help me with this as its a great phone apart from that. . . .
In the settings there's an option to set the phone to 2G 900/1800 network, if I do this will it make the battery standby/talk time last longer?

It's an awesome phone. The sound clarity is rocking, the 8MP camera is just out of this world. Touch Sensitivity is much better than Nokia 5800. The OS is a little outdated but nevertheless it works great with the phone.
The only problem is with the battery back-up. Its not good. The screen draws too much power when we use the cam. However, if the phone is fully charged we can use it to take atleast 200 snaps and make/recieve atleast 10-12 calls of 10-15 mins duration. After that the battery is - poof!!! Come on people, what more can we expect from a phone with so many positive features.
It works great for me. Go for it if you want a phone with an excellent cam.
I need to know about the battery back up while talking,taking Photo, Recording, Playing Songs etc.
Any one plz help me to know these things

Mark, 14 Apr 2009Would really like to know how to get the album art to show.....please help if you can. I've re... moredrag an art to the music through windows media player or itunes.. then download it to ur phone.. it should have an album art displayed
Anonymous, 11 Apr 2009how the hell do you put album art on the the phone?Would really like to know how to get the album art to show.....please help if you can. I've really tried everything apart form this, the manual is pretty useless, that's usually part of the fun with a new phone though :0)
I've had this phone for about 2 weeks now and i have to say it's wonderfull i love it, i got rid off a nokia 5800 to get this and don't regret it for a moment.
The battery is atrocious! even with screen brightness turned down full and no vibration at all. I charged the phone overnight and took it off in the morning (8a.m.)and without a lie i sent 5 texts messages and one 30 second call and i lost a bar by 3p.m. which i thought was shocking! another bar was gone doing nothing by 8p.m. and by the time i went to my bed (midnight) i'd lost another.
Is this normal? and does anyone have any suggestions to make the battery last a little longer (barring carrying around a car battery)
how the hell do you put album art on the the phone?
