Anonymous, 21 Mar 2009Does anybody know what kind of headset connector has this phone? A 3,5mm jack would be just...... moreHeadset connector is the stupid "multifunction jack" proprietary type, but the packaging includes an adapter lead from [stupid] to 3.5mm, and a matching set of earphones.
At least I think it's 3.5mm. Maybe it's 2.5mm. I'll check later.
TE, 23 Apr 2009Can someone comment on the browser? Is it the same trimmed down NetFront 3.4 or a full feature... moreBrowser is NetFront 3.5 apparently.
There's a Virtual Pointer option, but I have no idea what this means.
First impressions - I've only had the phone for one day, after using Sony Ericsson phones for the last 5 years, so I'll probably be over-picky about the differences.
The screen looks great; bright and plenty of contrast even on the lowest brightness setting.
The phone is very light and slim, even with the battery.
BUttons are large and easy to use, although the softkeys seem a bit small, and are placed so close to the end-call button that I often press that button accidentally and get returned to the Idle Mode screen.
Not used the Music Player yet (I have a perfectly good MP3 player with more memory and a proper headphone socket), but it seems to make good use of the D-pad.
Camera seems to work well even indoors, which is impressive, considering the lens and sensor are probably smaller than my thumb-nail.
* No voice-dialling, so inbound calls only on handsfree
* Connecting a handsfree kit requires a key-press on the phone to confirm a prompt: isn't this what "Hands Free" is supposed to avoid?
* Some simple tasks need too much dinking around the menus, for lack of a dedicated button on the phone (e.g. deleting items), but that may be just SE-withdrawal.
please, 29 Apr 2009does this have a nice SOUND QUALITY?....
and does this have a SOFT KEYPAD?..
because i wan... moreThe buttons on the keypad produce a solid click - I don't think they require much force, but you may disagree.
I suggest you find a demonstration model in a store and try it for a moment.
I do find that if I use the phone with one hand, I seem to strain my thumb reaching for buttons in the bottom row - it's easier to use two-handed.
memba, 15 Apr 2009yes it has voice dial.. read the manual and it will show you how to set it up!@memba, I have a PDF of the user guide here in front of me. The only 'voice' references are to voice calls and voice memo.
There is no voice-dialling feature on this phone, which is a little disappointing, since even my old SE T610 had that feature 5 years ago.
So you can only *receive* calls hands-free; and when you switch on your headset (mine's a Jawbone), the phone prompts you to accept the device, so you still have to dig out the phone and press a soft-key.
Not as elegant as SE, but it's early days yet, so I'm prepared to put up with this and give the phone a chance.
does this have a nice SOUND QUALITY?....
and does this have a SOFT KEYPAD?..
because i want a phone who have a soft keypad..because i love to text and text...so i want a SOFT keypad...i don't want to strain my hands..
please respond people.. :)
A Fantastic phone @ the price.
I got it 5 days back and found it more than exciting. The best thing is the size and weight, which is always my great concern. Prior to this phone, I ve been using Nokia N82 & Sony Ericsson C902. No doubt I enjoyed both, but after using this Samsung machine, I admit that it has more pleasure in handling, using and marking a style.
Following 3 points, where this phone marks above Nokia N82 & Sony Ericsson C902:
1. Screen Quality (more than decent)
2. Camera pictures (greaaaaaat)
3. Stylish design..specially the red line @ edges (my friends appreciated it very much)
4. Size & Weight (your pocket does not look like pregnant)
So, I recommend this phone to those who have priorities as above.
david, 24 Apr 2009dont buy it thats all i have to say, Why not? What's wrong with the phone?
Can someone comment on the browser? Is it the same trimmed down NetFront 3.4 or a full feature with pointer? Can you download OperaMini onto this?
Mobile GuRu, 06 Apr 2009If you think this phone looks anything like your U800 then may I suggest that you pop into spe... moreActually this phone reminds me of the Samsung Soul, and the U800. The calendar display icons are the same, so is the memo layout and the tasks. Plus how you can save them into the memory card. Also your files are the same. Plus the theme creator is the same!!! It's certainly not like the G600 (an example of another phone by Samsung). The only thing that is different is the battery life, it is very good, unlike the soul.
can anyone tell me if you can assign individual text tones to individual contacts rateher than just ring tones ?
memba, 15 Apr 2009yes it has voice dial.. read the manual and it will show you how to set it up!I've read it twice now and still cant find anything to do with voice dial..?
