to chris, what you wil find depending on the network supplier you an down load maps with them. for example orange maps...
Using the Pixon to text is a pleasure with the big touchscreen qwerty keyboard, fast and easy !
I love the phone because it is very simple to use, has a big screen with very big fonts (hate Nokia S60 microspic fonts)and a top camera and video.
If you are a heavy user who likes having tons of programs and games, buy a S60 Nokia, which are good phones but for another type of people.

HI Nightstalker can you please answer this as you had used LG Renoir... that in video recording ( for a longer duration say 20 to 30 minutes)is there any audio lag observed. that is audio and video both are in sync with each other or not. Final buying depends on this.

I have never had a touch screen before either thats why i was abit worried, as my mum had a touch screen and she really struggled with it! What is it like for writing text messages? I use predicted Text on my phone so i was worried that it might start taking ages to send texts lol! I am contemplating the sony c905 and the samsung m8800... decisions decisions lol!
Got a reply from Divx about Pixon Video Capabilities.
They recommend the Mobile Profile for encoding, (which is really bad quality) Here's their tips for testing.......
The DivX Mobile profile looks like this:
MPEG4 Simple Profile
B-VOP: Not Allowed
QPel: Not Allowed
GMC: Not Allowed
Interlaced: Not Allowed
VBV Max Size: 655360
VBV Max Bitrate: 600000
The Pixon may be more capable but it is not tested beyond those specs. You might want to try the Home Theater profile, but that is probably beyond the capability of the Pixon.
There are several important factors to consider for smooth playback. Specifically, what VBV model is used during encoding? Your VGA resolution video might require very high bitrates during challenging scenes.
If you would like to test the limits of the Pixon's capabilities, I would recommend starting with a high quality, high resolution video that includes challenging scenes of high-motion panning. Create several test files. You can use 720x480 resolution since you know the Pixon supports that, but you should gradually increase the VBV parameters until the Pixon visibly stutters during playback. You should also try encoding with and without B-VOB frames.
You'll find the ideal VBV Size to lie between 655360 and 3145728. The VBV bitrate should be between 600000 and 4854000. You'll need to use software like VirtualDub which allows you to access the Command Line Interface for the DivX Encoder so you can adjust these parameters.
For example, I find the LG Viewty works well at 640x480 with these CLI options:
-bvn1 1300000 -vbv 2000000,1310720,1310720 -w -b 0 -windowed_fullsearch=2 -quantization=2 -enhance_texture=1

If I were you I'd really buy this phone! I have got it for about 4 weeks now and I still love it! I never had a touchscreen before, but i do like it. The first few weeks it was a bit strange but now I'm really used to it. Now the answers to your questions:
A: Yes, the Pixon allows you to send animations and smileys
B: No, you can choose between the ringtones that are on the phone or your own music.That's for messages and incoming calls. That's no problem. Only I had to search where I could change the ringtones. you can change it: menu --> settings --> phone profiles.
C: I think the Pixon is definiatly worth a 8,5/9.
I've got a question, how does the GPs works? Is it like Tomtom? a navigator? that's GPS, right?
hi. just wondering how easy this phone is to use? and what is it like when wrighting txt messages? just wondering because ive never had or used a touch screen phone before. all comments/views would be much appreciated. THANKS!!!!
i have had this phone for a week and i love it to bits but have to admit i'm a bit out of my depth.... my problem is that when i get a text they show up with as number and not a name.
I have my contacts saved to sim and phone but have opted to disply phone info only so they do not duplicate but every time i switch my handset off it reverts back to showing them as numbers instead of names and i have to go through all the settings again, deleting the phone contacts, copying them from sim to phone then saving the settings to show phone info ony.
Anyone know how i can fix this ?
Hi I am thinking of buying the Samsung M8800 Pixon in a couple of weeks and wondered whether :
A: Does it allow you to send animations and smileys?
B: I saw a question below... can you only have ring tones for your messages that are on the phone?
C: All in all.... What would u rate it out of ten?
I havent had a touch screen before so wanted to no some information first cuz i dont want to make the wrong decision lol
Cat, 09 Jan 2009thanks...couldn't quite figure out the magnifying glass!!!!Click on "Phone book". On the upper left hand side you will see the double arrow. Press hold lower arrow, pull slowly down, you will see the magnifying letters release on desired letter to see the phone list. Hope this helped!

Make sure that you un-select the LAUNCH towards the end of the download. You do not want to run the software yet 3) load the other part of the software called USB connection (or something like that) 4) launch the software. Hope this helps.
