Got this phone today, this s7550 is one of the best phones. Playing movies and mp3 without problems with good soundquality with base and the bluetooth-sync with a pc is great! I can recommend this phone, no limits like the limits in iPhone.
Jo, 05 Jun 2010How is the call quality? Read on cnet that they experienced faint background crackling sound.
... moreWell, I think the solar panel doesn't even charge the phone.
Either that or the battery meter doesn't give a true reading.
Weather under the sun for 10 seconds, or even 5 hours, the meter only goes up by one.
The touch screen has sensitivity issues which happen at random. Sent it to Samsung, they sent it back saying there is no problem with it !!!!????
hi everyone.I received the phone yesterday and i started learning it .Its very pretty .But after a while started to jam.Freeze.No matter what button i
pressed did nothing.I had to remove the battery
to shut it down and when i turn it on it jammed at no time again.Any ideas?

I am very satisfied with the solar charging qualities. I had a almost completely empty battery on a CLOUDY day in February and when I turned it on and placed it on a shelf on a window it remained on, and it even had the charge for 3 minutes of call then. Oh so you know what February is like here... I live in central Europe at about the same distance from the ecuator as New York city
I got it for 2 days now, and i guess the way the contacts are shown aren't changeable. Which sucks! But well..
Otherwise, it's a cool phone. I have quitew clear call quality, no noise or nothing. The phone seems to be solid, it's a bit heavy but i like that.
The solar panel seems to do it's job properly. And this is in the Netherlands. 1 hour of sun gave me quite some more time, so i think it seems to work.
I like the camera quality, sharp pics, and it works fast. havent tried it in the evening yet.
Overall, I would recommend this phone if you want a phone that doesnt damage the planet to much and still want something good looking. Cause it's quite beautyfull in my opinion.

Mine often needs a second or third press to work (most noticable when trying to text).

Got one in 2009 here in Portugal.
We're called a market of "early adopters", maybe that's why lots of gadgets and stuff arrive really soon.
Never saw it in the UK (I go there every month)... but then, I'm not really looking for it.
PLEASE.......HELP ME!!!!! I love the phone,just have got it;') but the contacts in the phone starts with the family name first..totally opposite from the other phones. I would like to have them to start it with the first name, as usual....what can I do???? Tried to find settings inside, but didn't find it....ahhhh. Is any one has that problem?When I put the SIM card in other phones..alphabetically contacts showes up by the first names...but not on the Samsung...heeeeeeelp!
Anonymous, 12 May 2010Can you try and charge the phone for half an hour and how long can it be in standby mode...Ok.
I'll need to get the battery down to almost empty before I try this.(I'll get a better result this way).
Also do you want the charge done while the phone is off or on. You get different results depending on weather the phone is off or on.

fubz, 11 May 2010does the battery wear out that fast within 24hrs? Not in a solar charging...battery time is perfect. i used the phone for a lot web browsing and calls took up around the 50 minute mark got about 5 days stand by time. battery. standby time will give you over 7 days.
Hi, i am saving to buy this phone. There are just questions in my mind that i can't find such answers.
How long does the battery stands for talk time? And how long is it for standby? For me, battery is the most important specs in a phone. Hoping for replies.
I knew this phone was too good to be true.
A phone with a solar panel that wont even charge the battery weather in direct sunlight for 2-3 hours or other strong light source. (tried whith the phone switched off or on).
How can Samsung allow for such poor handset quality to even be released.
There is no update either.
This one is going back for a refund !
Donald, 03 Apr 2010Hello,
I bought this S7550 for its solar charging: i see a red solor icon but you can't charg... moreI tested the solar charging a little more in depth today.
It was baking in the sun (clear sky and mid day) for two hours today and guess what...the same problem !
The solar panel is not actualy charging the battery at all.
I'm leaving it next to the light for 7 hours tonight and see what happens tomorrow morning...
The Solar Charger seems to charge a lot quicker than I had first imagined !
The phone will happily charge with the solar pannel even on a cloudy day, although if you are using the solar pannel to charge, it's more effective while the phone is switched off as you will get a quicker charge.
Carging is best done out doors (i.e. not through a window as this will give a less effective charge).
For anyone interested I'll try to do a detailed test on how much extra usage you will get for 'X' amount of charge time in certain lighting conditions.
Any questions, please ask...
