I got my Monte a few days back and I just love it..
The application support is pretty decent and the screen is bright and clear..
The battery backup is also nice..
on screen key touch pad is nicely laid out you won't feel the need of QWERTY pad..
The supplied hands free could have been of better quality but music buffs can always use their own headphones. I find the music output quality a lot better with my SENNHEISER ear plugs..
The GPS is good however it takes time to locate you position when waiting on GPS..
The display size and quality is very good when compared with Nokia 5800
I can say this phone is a steal considering the features and the price.
I got mine for Rs.9370/- (mumbai)with additional 2yrs warranty.
Touchscreen is intermittent, sometimes it is easy to use however there were times that it just wont response or it is not calibrated.. Would you know how we can calibrate the touchscreen?
Does anybody ever has managed to purchase the black and silver version of Samsung Monte in India. I did not like the orange black colour much and am planning to buy the black and silver one instead. Can some one tell me if this colour is available in india. Thanks for your help.
