I don't think many people on here have much apreciation for a 'uber' or retrochic design. Who the hell wants a Nokia? why do you want the same phone as everyone else? Can't you be different? This is a fantactic design and will probably influence nokia, motorola, sony eric so make their own versions. Mark my words!! rememeber this when you go out to buy nokia's small flat phone! Just because it's a bit different doesn't make it weird or ugly.. this is exactly the type of phone you want! its understated, its feature packed. I love the design and have waited years for someone to have the forsight to bring out a sucha cool phone. Mine arrives tomorrow! I can't wait!
gsmarena.com says it is 3hr talk time... samsung says it is 8hr..
which is correct ?
Spot on design! The fact that the 'skool kidz' hate it only increases it's appeal!
Deffo reccommended, now on O2 for 20 quid on contract!
What are you waiting for!!!
I love it.But have problem syncing it with my pc. can someone help?thanx
At first sight it looks like a calculator, with no doubt (picture). The real deal is very slick. Nice looking slim phone. You will hate it or just love it (like me). Go to your dealer and just watch en feel it. You will like it too.
i have seen one of these phones as a samsung rep came in to store a few weeks back it has an additional battery/wallet compartment so it is hidden in side a wallet so its a brilliabnt but of thinking on samsungs part
Does anyone know if they will make a plastic holster for the p300--it's one slick phone.
at first i thought it was hideous too.. but now im loving it! it's soo cute! lol
To address your question whether or not it will work with Cingular? Yes the phone will work with our GSM network. Be advised though. This phone is not reccommended simply for the fact that it does not pick up the 850mhz frequency which the cingular network uses. If you are in an area that utilizes the 850 frequency you might notice minimal reception as well dropped calls. That goes for any phone.
Please make sure the phones you are purchasing are compatible with our network. And ensure that the seller is offering a return policy.
I love putting posts about how ugly it is ok imagine puting that to ur ear and talking ppl aound u will say "omg this guys insane he wants a cell phone so bad heas talking into a calculator."HAHAHAHHAHAHHHAHHAHAHAHAHA
I wonder how many times people will post that this phone resembles a calulator? I think it's funny that all these people want to parrot each other. I personally love the design, it's clean, and masculine, it appears solid, and has some personality. There are so many phones now that are over-designed into a mess of cheap moulded plastic and shiny bits. This is a bit different, not a huge leap really, but at least it's not another curved, brightly coloured childs toy. Looks like I'll be moving from Nokia, who seems to have lost the concept of quality design, to Samsung. Certaily the Samsung/Bang & Olufsen Serene has boosted Samsung's image.
hi i saw the phone in the store yestarday, i really wan to get one, i currently have cingular as my service provider, i knw this phone is tri-band, and cingular is a tri-band provider, will this work on cingular network? will it work worse than normal? what is really the difference? i live in nyc, should i not buy it because its is tri band and there are quad band phones out?
thanks for ur help
My phone came yest, and damn it's sexy.
Mine came next dam from paris so manual and phone was in french O.o good thing i know a little >:D
Menu is easy to use, sound quality is excellent when using loud speaker or normal, mic quality is same.
Menu is functional and simple, but coz i'm a nokia guy, sommat to get use to.
Vibrate isn't so good, but it's ok.
Only downside i noticed it using data cable to put java games and polyphonic ringtones.
Apparently it's a samsung trait and there is a fix, if you google.
Well I love this phone, and it's very retro, and functional.
This looks like a calculator. I would rather buy an N70. Or break my own legs.
About battery life:
I tought I would let you know. Since my last post here dated 2006-03-09 15:20 (scroll down) I have charged the phone twice.. this should tell you a lot, especially if you put in the middle 2 business trips and about 50 photos. Right now, I still have roughly 50% battery remaining.
Just do the math, in case you're worried about battery life.
to answer a few messages: i purchased my phone for $600. in regards to upstate new york. if your sim card is locked to the cingular network and they are using 850MHz spectrum in your area, you will have a problem since it allows you to select 1900MHz or 900MHz/1800MHz. the pictures are deceiving, it doesn't look like a calculator in real life and it is metal not plastic. the menus, camera, sms, mms, video recording are all excellent. the web browsing is a bit slow. the calendar is good but nokia is better.
i thought these message boards were meant to help each other out rather than post useless comments. i hope others find this helpful. thank you.
