well i have reviewed samsung corby s3850 today only and i confirm to all that this phone doen't have "qwerty keypad" and "accelerometer".it also doesn't have "pinch zoom". i am quite disappointed that even having capacitive touch screen this phone doesn't have pinch zoom and accelerometer.
cons of this phone:-
1.NO QWERTY KEYPAD
3.NO PINCH ZOOM.
4.BOX DOESN'T CONTAIN USB CABLE

Very surprising that some people say that there is no qwerty keyboard for SMS. If you look at the thai Samsung website it says (in thai) that you can use Quicktype T9 with a qwerty keyboard when writing messages
Arrra, 03 May 2011Hi! I bought this phone like 2 weeks ago and yep.. accelerometer doesn't work and there is no ... morereg. drafts... go to messages select conversation list if u have folder view. then select the settings key.(3 dots in the low center above menu button). there u can see draft folder (2nd on the 1st row).
Hi! I bought this phone like 2 weeks ago and yep.. accelerometer doesn't work and there is no option to activate the virtual qwerty.. Qwerty only appears and works automatically though on a landscape mode after editing a photo (upon saving) and while using the internet browser to type in the web address, etc.
I still am satisfied though with the experience of using this phone coz I think everything I need is already here. Too bad it only has 2mp camera with no flash and there is no external key for taking photos.. but what can you expect.. It's pretty cheap for a wifi phone compared to other brands.. I think the low price still compensates the features of this phone and all that and I believe, the wider screen is a pretty good advantage and the design rocks! Not bad at all.
By the way, I still have a few questions:
Anybody knows where to find the Msg drafts? I know I have a lot saved on my msgs but until now, I just couldn't find them.
..also, is there really not a full screen slideshow of pictures? when I play mine, photos are only shrunk in the middle of the screen and does not automatically detects and rotate if a photo is saved on a landscape mode and vice versa.
Thanks much! =)
v14ily, 02 May 2011do you know where i can download those widgets onscreen ? please help =)yes u can. go to samsung apps on the widget screen.. or in the menu...
Qwerty feature is available when entering addresses for internet application while typical keypad style for creating sms.
Glass like the first corby.
Great phone for its price bracket. Competition is way off compared to the features this phone can give you, again, with its price bracket. If you're planing of buying a phone with limited budget, try this model and you'll be satisfied as I am. Easy to use, basic features you need for everyday typical cellphone use is exceeded, with wifi, multimedia, sns, organiser sms and contacts features, this phone is too cool, again, for its price bracket. Worth your money!!!
is this corby phone have qwerty key for sms ???
this phone is good for rufgh use or huady fone ?
[deleted post]ofcourse u can add themes.. i think this phone supports java softwares. try downloadin java softwares. and themes particularly for this phone will be released in sometime since its a new phone in business. reg accelerometer & qwerty keypad i think most of the users will be disappointed. keeping the price tag in mind accelerometer wud be a big feature for this phone but qwerty should have been there... sad...
Seems strange that some phones have qwerty keyboard and some others have not. You sure you cannot choose the keyboard by going into the option menu like in many phones ?
