Have it for about ten days now.
- screen is bright, sharp, colourful, fast
- great with fingers, but I also use a little wooden stick (gentler than plastic), it responds extremely quick
- browser is awesome, ONE-TOUCH zoom hehehe
- 3 screens
- full keyboards types good enough (I was used to HTC S730 which is brilliant there)
- find loads of stuff on getjar.com and experiment between Pixon and S5600 of S5230 (Jet is not mentioned yet)
- No Route 66 in it, although you get the feeling it is in there???
- Google Maps has VERY small typeface
- battery life is short (but hey, I am toying with it all day)
- they use a special connector, like some nokia's have, so good luck finding extra cables...
- mail program does only support text and no html
- reads Office files and PDF, no editing of Office files
All in all, I am very glad I bought this one instead of LG Arena. First I opted for the Samsung Preston S5600, but this screen got me...
Great looks and great phone!
Bought it in the Netherlands for € 389,-
kink, 30 Jun 2009Samsung, do you know why your popularity is led by HTC? HTC is technically far behind Samsung... morenonsense...the htc phones arent better than samsung in general. they have some more features, but only because of their smartphone OS, show me the htc phone with an 800mhz CPU...or with an acceptable audio player...or with an really sensitive touchscreen. and you have to think about the princing....samsung is cheaper than htc.....
kink, 30 Jun 2009Samsung, do you know why your popularity is led by HTC? HTC is technically far behind Samsung... morethat's one and only reason why I liked Diamond type design. Hope samsung designers do something with this curve. In fact it's getting more and more curvy which is disappointing to me.
Samsung, do you know why your popularity is led by HTC? HTC is technically far behind Samsung in general, but their phone sizes are smaller with WM (ie, smartphone). More importantly, Samsung uses too much curves in their design, losing sexiness in looks. People seems crazy on the squaredness of HTC design in general. Come up with a small (just like Jet or smaller in overall size without sacrifing the LCD resoulation and size) WM (or Symbian based) phones - I'm gonna wait for it. Technologies behind Jet deserves much higher scores than HTC phones.
The pink and white, exclusive to orange, phone you are all talking about is the S5600, not this one...duur!
There are already firmware updates out!
voda, 29 Jun 2009its not exclusive to orange as its out on vodafonethey meant the white one
Anonymous, 29 Jun 2009operating system pleaseThere is no operating system like WM or Symbian here...it's all proprietary to Samsung because it's not a smartphone.
