just bought my Samsung Monte from Samsung Gallery in Dadar, Mumbai. So far, its been working just gr8. No problems so far. (Except the fact that FM radio does not work when you charge the phone). Camera is OK, not so gr8, but will serve the purpose. Earphones sound nice, although they are not the best in the market. GPS worked.. it atleast zoomed to my Mahim residence correctly! I have succesfully set up Gmail Push mail client and my Face book account on the phone. I am using Reliance GSM network. Sound quality compared to my previous SE walkman series is good. Yet to download Opera Mini, will do it soon. PDF viewer does not have partial zooming option. It shows entire page.. and then you zoom in all the way through the last level. So you hardly read 3 words at a time! Smart unlock feels cool. However, lack of QWERTY is a bit let down. Overall a good experience. Post here if you have any specific queries. Will try to answer them.
really hard to choose from s5560 and marvel.
I guess it's just the matter of who wants 3g connectivity or better camera.
But seriously, go for the monte. Its kinda shame for a phone whose only capable for a 2g network especially we're in the year 2010 now.. woot
I just bought my new samsung monte and so for its all doing good...
-the speaker is good but xpress music of nokia is much
-no querty keypad in texting(if you downloaded opera
mini 5-it has a querty keypad
-very elegant style
(when using opera mini 5 for browsing videos-you cannot stream it tells you to download adobe flash payer)
-the camera is good(3.2mp)
-picture editing like pc
-very afordable price(i just bought it here in the Philippines for just Php10200)
everything is good...
sorry for wrong english hope this helps
GroowyM, 06 Apr 2010There are many different informations about Qwerty & Flash on the web and here for S5620 M... moremaybe this link will give u wat u r lookin for http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_s5620_monte-review-446p5.php
This mobile is available in Mumbai(India) at Rs.9300 with 2GB memory card.
Sound in headphone is good.
Good in build Applications.
We can view doc and pdf files but cannot view flash files. The phone does not allow to edit pdf or doc files.
Camera quality is not up to that mark.Doesn't have flash. No auto focus.
Does not completely support 3rd party applications.
This mobile doesn't have qwerty keyboard. But if u install opera mini then u can get qwerty keyboard only for that application.
This phone have capacitive touch screen so the life of touch screen is large but we cannot use stylus to point small objects.

whats it comparison to nokia 5800 (sound wise )..
For the java games installation, since the OS of Monte is Samsung Propreitary there are java games that is compatible with the unit. Just type in the model then all games that is compatible for the unit will appear.
There are many different informations about Qwerty & Flash on the web and here for S5620 Monte. Can someone really try it and paste a pictures (upload and link here) ?
- qwerty text input if it exist
- qwerty text input with Opera Mini
- Flash with default browser
- Flash with Opera Mini
If qwerty is not supported by default, is it possible to install any application that has that feature for things like SMS, Notes and similar? What kind of apps are possible to install on S5620 ?
Samsung S5620 aka Monte launched in India.
Approx price estimated Rs.8,850. dats a steal for such a device in India market leavin d corby n star series to dust.
NO full landscape qwerty keyboard for messaging like Star, right ?
So Samsung Marvel 5560 is FAR better !
Its a good handset except its sound in the speaker. It sounds like chinese sets, loud and noisy not sweet and crisp. non abundance of its compatible 3rd party applications is really troublesome. it does not have a office editor. Flash is not a mandatory but autofocus and macro mode helps in capturing a document if you want to read it later on, which other wise not possible.
