Coz I think having this Samsung Monte right in your own hands is the best know-how teacher compared to the forums/social networking sites you have attended/joined. And I live in a middle-class house located here in metro manila (where the climate is so hot because itís summer and worsened by El Niño).
2. FYI: Iím speaking from my experiences and not simply playing with the keyboards.
3. The store already informed me that they only do replacement once. Yes, Iím planning to go directly to DTI. But right now, I just want my hard-earned cash backÖ.

The sound quality is okay on both speakers and headphones. But if you live in a humid/hot climate places better (like in my case coz we're experiencing El Niño here in sunny Phil.) think a hundred times coz it automatically turns on-and-off-and-on-and-off mode. And if you actually live in the Phil. think a thousand times! coz if you found out that youre phone is defective you're going to experience super stress and hassles before u can have your unit replaced with a new one (even if u bought it in an authorized dealer of Samsung mobile)..

Anonymous, 27 May 2010Hello everyone, Could Tanuj or anybody tell me the message capacity and location preference o... moreWell not unlimited but I think sufficient capacity of 1300 sms storage plus SIM capacity! Yes you can backup as well can restore the messages easily :) The phonebook capacity is 2000 contacts plus SIM capacity. Don't have any direct backup/restore facility for contacts but you can have either copy or move them :)
This phone attracted me a lot and hence i'm looking forward to buy it. Its really great to have such a mid-range phone with a plenty of features. It has great looks and has been equipped with 3.2 megapixel camera which can make you to get rid of carrying an extra digicam. I'm gonna write another review after my purchase.
Rahul, 27 May 2010Hi tanuj.which browser did u use to play youtube video? The browser in phone itself(DOLFIN) Or... moreWell youtube playing fine in both that is in dolfin browser v1.5 & also in opera mini :)
Getting mine tomorrow (or so I hope)... First time I'm getting a Samsung phone, really hope I made the right choice! Will leave another comment soon on what I think of the phone. Judging by the comments here it seems that it doesn't have any problems.

They didnt said that they r facing problem like you.you are trying to say that monte s5620 works only in a/c atmosphere and not in humid condition.are you trying to tell that u live in a place where temperature might be around 50 degree to 60 degree celcius.
What a crap.
My Monte Tragedy :C (PLEASE BE INFORMED/WARNED)
Iíve chosen Samsung Monte (S5620) because of its style and cool features (3G, wifi-enabled, HSDPA and full touchscreen). When I got home that night after buying the phone, my Samsung Monte automatically went ON-and-OFF MODE! I was so pissed off and simply mad and felt cheated because (1) I bought mine in an authorized dealer of Samsung mobile, and (2) the sales lady in the store even made demonstrations and trial testing of the phone to show that it functions well.
In order to speed up the process of damage control, I personally went to Samsung Phils.ís main service center to request for a technical report stating that my phone is defective so I can have it change for a new unit (this is the storeís policy - even if the phone is less than a week old). After all the hassles Iíve experienced, finally the store replaced my phone and battery with brand new ones. Alas! I found out, in my very room at our modest house, that my NEW phone is just the same as the first one Ė useless! The next day I even bought a memory card (my last opt Ė maybe the phoneís memory is insufficient) since the unit and battery already failed me. But then again, itís no use. So now Iím surrendering (or shouldnít I?)
FYI: Samsung Monte (S5620) was released early this year (March 2010)
Probable causes/reasons why my Samsung Monte went ON-and-OFF-and-ON-OFF automatically:
1. The phonesí software is not updated
2. The main board is defective? (for both phones? what a coincidence!)
3. Samsung Monte cannot adapt/does not function well/useless in a humid climate or in hot- temperature areas/places (like my case because it only happens inside our home..but normally functions in our centralized, air-conditioned office)
4. Samsung brand is clearly low quality/sub-standard? (sad, sad, sad Ė itís my first time to patronized a Samsung product)
Please, please, please help me..what should I do??
