I meant that the phone shows only the first 12 letters of each name, which is a problem when it comes to long names...

Anyone knows if this phone is going to be discontinued? It no longer appears on the Samsung website, the price has dropped and Media Market no longer stocks it. If so, what model will replace it?
I have this device for over 3 months (previous phone SE K810i)...
Photo quality, colours, sharpness etc apart from the camera's 12 MPs.
Great, great screen (response, sharpness and everything)!
Xenon flash for photos & Led flash for videos
Good size (BUT DO use a wrist leash to avoid dropping it)
Good signal (could be a little better)
not a smartphone (but that would mean a higher retail price than 250 ) some internet pages wont open up.
Blurry video in night conditions (got to choose only between autofocus or facefocus !!! - both fail to do the job , even under substantial night lighting conditions)
lower than average battery life last 2,5 - 3 days at most with average use (carries a 1000mAh battery when the SE K810i had a 950 mAh batt). Got to charge it every 2nd day .
Uncomfortable screen unlocking (got to keep pressed the button - not working if you press at the same time the button for taking pictures, which isn't rare at all since it's placed on the other side of the phone).
voice recording has a max limit of 60 minutes.
confirmation of received msgs comes to you only in a msg form - got to delete 'em all the time!
not loud enough ringtone.
takes only 12 letter characters for names in phonebook agenda (SE K810 much more - come oooonnnnnnn!!!)
when making a call via a Bluetooth set adjusting the volume is done only by the Bluetooth set & not the +/- device buttons.
Alarm rings for only one time does not repeat itself every few minutes till you wake up and close it down.
This phone could be much better if SAMSUNG paid a little more attention to some silly I must say details (ex 12 letter characters for your phonebook contacts, alarm etc thats why every now and then I do miss my old SE K880i), BUT OVERALL it really is a very good device, PERFECT for those who are interested in accessing the internet for free (via WiFi) and at the same time have in their pocket the best for the time being mobile-phone camera.
If you want smartphone applications , buy a smartphone.
qman, 04 Apr 2010hey, read a couple reviews that have said that call volume is low... anyone had same problem... moreI have had this phone for a year in august and never had a problem with the volume the camera is amazing theirs a few things it dont do that over phones I have had in the past did do but the camera makes up for that. video in slow motion is amazing. and make sure you get unlimited internet usgage on your tariff as its so fast to upload your pictures to facebook I literally take my pics and 2 secs later there uploaded to facebook quick and easy def get this phones its great.

qman, 04 Apr 2010hey, read a couple reviews that have said that call volume is low...
anyone had same problem... moreNO.......... the volume is OK.
I just got it a week ago. i was also worried about the low volume as commented.
But it was ok. better than my nokiassss. slightly softer than LG
hey, read a couple reviews that have said that call volume is low...
anyone had same problem???
would be much appreciated as im reallllyyy tempted in getting this phone,
In my opinion samsung rushed this fon and, i own it and i am so sad when i see it laying there with so much potential but wit so much restriction imposed on it. I say imposed becos this fon wants to be great and it has got the potential but samsung has really deprived this fon of the stage. this is why:
12mp camera. This is the main feature, i go out clubbing with this fon and nt even the digital camera of my m8s can come close. Light, Dark once u know wat u doing takes beautiful pics. My love for this fon increases during the weekend.
After we have had such a good time and its time to work i feel so sad becos its just laying there;
1. NO SUPPORT FROM SAMSUNG
2. I MEAN COME ON THIS IS THE WORLD'S FIRST 12MP PHONE THT IS COMPETING WITH DIGITAL CAMERAS....sorry these have to be in caps.
3. BATTERY LIFE...NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
4. I MEAN THE WORLD FIRST PHONE TO STAND UP AND COMPETE WITH DIGITAL CAMERAS ISNT A SMART FON......aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh (i will stop here cos this is what has killed this fon not mentioning lack of support from samsung).
this fon is like having a friend who has the potential so sing, dance, saumersault, become a superstar bt his family wants him to stay and run the boring family business and they dont even give him a hand while hes at it!!!! im looking to getting the omnia hd anyways.
this is the best phone on the market by far, only a couple of problems 1. there no straight edge so you can't stand the phone on its side to take a photo of you and friend etc 2. when you send a text message you can only send it to 10 people at a time. 3 no 3.5 audio plug in. apart from that 99% of you will be happy, touch screen is great. word of advice, buy a rubber case to go round it just in case you drop it.and befor anyone on says the sony satio does all this i'll say this, itsgot a straigh edge but touch screen is ok but software is pants and video is a joke, a 5 year old nokia has better video.
Is there any info regarding the operating system or whether or not this phone will have microsoft office?
Does the Samsung Pixion have 3.5mm audio jack? Why i am asking thisis because the Sony Satio does not have it.
hey everyone?? what phone do you all recomend? the pix0 12 or the omnia hd? im leaving to go buy it in the next 40 mins please let me know. i want less glitches and all...
Ahmed, 17 Mar 2010I want to know from pixon users what are the bugs in this phone and what about the battery i a... moreI've had my phone for about 4 months now, battery life is good but I don't use the web all day I just primarily use google maps, the exchange server and ofcourse constantly receiving text messages through out the day. I love my phone, I was going to wait for the SE Satio but I'm glad I didn't because this phone has everything I need. The camera is amazing and I'm able to load as many applications as any iphone out there. The virtual qwerty key board is very easy to use. I would buy this phone again if I had to.
