i have this phone myself and i love it.
the touch screen is very easy to use, i have never been a fan of touch screen but i found this easy. the whole reason i took it is because of the keypad so i wouldn't find the texting to difficult (i have long nails!), but i found that i never used the keypad!
I like being able to move the widgets around, but it's a shame they don't have more convenient or fun widgets available to download, but nonetheless it covers most of everything you will need a shortcut for. I don't like the fact that the widgets reset themselves when you switch the phone off and on again!
the battery life is completely pants though, i have to charge it everyday, mind you i am on the internet a lot during the day, but having to charge it everyday is annoying.
texting on it can by a little annoying as when you make a mistake in a word (predictive texting) then you have to delete the whole word and start again. Mostly i don't have too many problems with the texting.
Internet is easy to use also. Overall, after a little bit of getting used to, the phone is great, i would give it an 8.5 out of 10 for everything, main downpoints i've noted, but otherwaise i find it entertaining and i haven't gotten bored with it yet!
ALex, 09 Jun 2009oh man... cannot read the new SMS during a call.
is there a way to do that?yes you can view an sms during a call
menu->settings->phone settings->camera key function-> always ask
when you are in a call press the camera button for one second.. a box will pop up (app switcher) and just choose messages
i have used the phone for about two weeks now
to be honest.. after reading reviews i expected the bettery life to be worse than it is.. its not good but not as bad as sonyeric c905.. the camera is 8mp but who ever says its fantastic is a tard..
the picture is often shaky even with anti-shake on
the picture is really large at 8mp but there is no details..its like if you are using a 2mp camera and just zooming in or resizing the picture...
one more important downside of this phone..many of you might not even notice.. is call quality.. it is really bad..i have done some tests..and found out that if the other person is totally silent..then suddenly speaks..usually the begening of the 1st word will be chopped off.. if the word is short enough, i dont hear a thing..just nothing..when it really pisses me off i take my sim out and insert it in my e71 and my life becomes so much better..
if you want this phone for the looks..get it
if you want a good camera phone go for sonyeric c905 or any good 5mp nokia will be better
if you talk alot..just stay away..
last thing i wanna comment on is the screen..one of the guys here was saying the touch screen is amazing and responsive..!! dude havent u ever used a touch screen?
that is the worse touch screen ever made..i am comparing to the phones i owned recently:
htc touch pro
one last thing..if you have like more then 60 smss..dont bother scrolling through them..it takes forever as the phone lags
if i commit sucide..you know why lol
oh man... cannot read the new SMS during a call.
is there a way to do that?
is the batt for Samsung S8300 UltraTouch finish very fast , less than a day i need to re-charge .

Awesome phone, can safely say love the phone and no problem with battery i got 3 days out of it and i use it alot Thanks Samsung You Rock who needs wi fi
To Expensive to Buy an Run this mobile an i bet Samsung are laughing at the people who have bought it,were suppose to be struggling with income but Samsung do not seem to think that,my friend as sent 3 off these back to Samsung because he wonder why the battery was only lasting a Day,but he got not explaination from Samsung why it only was lasting a Day,so a mobile not worth it full value
I really belived all those comments, but after i tested myself all i can say now is BEST PHONE EVER WOW!!! THX SAMMY
