its such a shame that this doesnt have WLAN and a few cm shy of 3" screen.
Can anyone help?? I bought this phone on sunday... very nice phone i must say but my auto rotate does not seems to work well.. meaning if i open a photo to view, when i rotate anticlockwise, it turns but its not able to turn back when i tilt the phone back to its original position. Anyone can help?? Thanks!
NO SPEED DIAL.
wtf ???? has samung developers been out drinking to much out with apple developers ?
Why Why Why dont phones do what are ment to
I know this phone has an anti scratch screen, but if u want that extra bit of protection then here's a handy tip.
When you first receive/purchase the phone it should come covered with loads of clear protection films. Remove all except the one applied to the screen. The touch screen still works with this on. The only other thing you need to do is carefully cut the protruding tab (put there to help remove the protective film), and you've got yourself a free screen protector!
Can i also just say this is a fantstic phone. Very responsive/high quality screen, construction/build quality is excellent and the camera is brilliant (vibrant colours, especially reds and blues.
Using the phones accelerometer to scroll through pics was a nice touch too.
Some people have been having issues with the battery life, but i seem to get 3-5 days worth depending on usage (i'm not on my phone 24/7!!), which i think is quite good. This is comparable to the iphone which is roughly the same, if not worse, and the fact that a lot of people have probably purchased this phone cos they didn't want an iphone, i'd give it two thumbs up. And who knows, samsung might bring out a better battery or a software update in the near future.

hello dear mehdi
it's true that the battery is 880ma but it
has rather long battery life
Hi! I have a strange trouble with the camera: sometimes, when I open it, the autofocus does not work, I mean it makes a continuous "bzzz" sound like if it was trying to focus, but stays in a kind of macromode, and the picture is fuzzy (it's already obvious on the screen, and stil more on the picture). Yes, I checked the macromode, it's off!!! Can someone explain/solve that problem? Thanks
I picked this up really for the camera and the stylish get up. It has been a month now and I am very pleased with it. I have been using Samsung phones the last 4 years, so that probably helped me get into the menus quickly. The widgets work well. The camera and flash are superb with good red as well as blue reproduction. The only trouble is with the battery. If you talk half an hour every day, you have to charge it every day.
Does anyone know if you can set the phones e-mailapp into "automtic pull", now i have to press download everytime if i want to check my e-mails...
i have 20 giga data-transfer with my belgian operator so i want to use it :-d
i liked this phone and went to buy it but when i saw only 880 mAh,i have changed my mind and went to innov which was 1200 mAh.
I really don't understand why people are complaining about the battery life. I can easily go through 3 days without having to charge it! And if I use it heavily the maybe a day and half. The thing that drains the battery out quickly is the call function.
tip on keeping a long battery life: do not leave ur phone plugged in after it has been fully charged!
this phone is great... the only flaw is that it hasn't got wifi.. but i guarantee that this mobile will be at stores for a very very long time!
it has a great design it's touch and 8mp, also has an 8mp camera!
what else do you need?
is wifi really a problem or we want things that we will never use?
think about it.. this is a mobile not a computer!
I've bought this phone for about half a month. I realised when I was playing the music with a earpiece on, and a message being received was not notified and no msg tone was played. Isit the handphone function or its my phone's problem?
Found the cheapest price from eBay:
Hey, for those who're complaining from the Battery Life..
Try turning the phone off and charge it before your sleep at night and disconnect it at the morning. I tried this and now it complteted 1 day without loosing any battery line with my same old usage.
Before, I've used to charge my phone while it's turned on and after 2 hours charging it tells me battery is full and i unplug the phone. the phone was lasting hardly a 3/4 day. But that was the dark old days.
Anonymous, 12 May 2009yep if u go into your widget options you can put create message in there. then take out all th... moreHI, i could be being blonde, but i cant find anything to do with messages to add to my widget. I really want to add a short cut to my "create" message.
Also i cant seem to set up my voice messages. I have some on the phone but when i press option 1 to change my message i cant or option 2 to listen to my messages i cant.
But the short cut to the create message would be really helpful!
Kurpt - Mine lasts for about 2 days and i would say i am an average user. Its prob the only down side the battery does not hold at all! i guess it just means getting into a routine of putting it on charge every other night. My last samsung used to last about 5 days with the same usage.
Can someone tell me how long does the battery last on s8300,i have innov i8510 and it's killing me,it hardly last for a day,so i'm thinking of selling it to get s8300.tnx
I used to have a G600 before this and yes this has more features a nicer looking phone etc but the G600 seemed easier to text etc as it had the shortcut key in the middle.
It has taken me a while to get use to it but this seems to be the way modern phones are going and its up to you if you need an all singing all dancing phone or not.
The added keypad does certainly help though. i dont think i could handle just a touch screen phone.
If you do get this one, you will think its a lot bigger heavier than the G600 but i personaly think this is good. The G600 now looks and feel cheap and rubbish
