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
HI, 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!
naadhan, 12 May 2009To all who worried about wifi, Samsung won the hearts of all the guys who worried about non av... moreits also about price. S8300 is lot cheaper than OmniaHD, NOkia N79 and Applie iPhone. I believe price is a major factor when comparing features.
i just recently purchased my se8300 ultra touch last week and the features are just so amazing. the touch screen is just so responsive and i really love it. i'm using samsung d880 before ( because of the dual sim capability) and that made me decide to purchase another samsung product. it is as user friendly as nokia but the 8300 has 16 million colors. aside from that its 8mp camera is just so impressive. though it doesnt support wifi capability but the rest of the features are overwhelming. i think u guys should try one!
very nice phone nice screen, camera quality is super the videos are very very nice, music is loud, the bad thing is that when u write an sms there is no arrow to go up down left or right, and when u click on the screen between the text it doesnt respond that good, battery life is also very bad, but for the rest the phone is very very nice, hope that there is an update soon
yep if u go into your widget options you can put create message in there. then take out all the pointless ones from on there and just use the essentials.
Hi I was wondering if anyone could tell my if i can get a shortcut to my inbox or create a message like i could on my old samsung. it seems very long winded way to send a text.
taber, 11 May 2009hey, i got this fon last week here in manila, Philippines. im wondering if anyone have tried t... morehi taber. I also bought an ultra touch here in pampanga. nd I'm also using globe as my service provider. My browser works good and fast. The only thing that says connection failed is when I download more widgets. I hope I'd helped :)
this phone is very smart.and one - point is this phone is touch is not smooth just like apple iphone and nokia 5800.thats a - point and all over is good .and this phone names is lousha.
Anonymous, 12 May 2009can any one tell me if it comes with a stylusHai, S8300 comes with AMOLED display and can be operated only by the touch of the fingers and no stylus will work with this (as per earlier comments)
To all who worried about wifi, Samsung won the hearts of all the guys who worried about non availability of wifi in this mobile.. cos they find the mobile is good in desighn and all other aspects except for the wifi. but to keep in mind, so far no one has given any complete review of the product except for a few who uttered about the functional disabilities. wifi is not a part of this model and if you are searching for wifi models go to next page rather sitting in this and telling no wifi with great expressions omg, oh, ah oh god, why :-)). come one guys samsung or no other mobile will give you complete phone co they are into business. All are great in IPhone, but for camera:-(, all are great in s8300 but for wifi, all are great in N79 but for design and memory. Look, you have to get compromised on one or the other coz that's how the company wants. If this s8300 has wifi, how do you expect samsung to do business with Omnia HD and other models to come by. Lets talk about the feature difficulties, and that is called a review poining out a non available fuction doesnt helps anyway. Apart from battery life (common with samsung and still they are in the business :-) )and few texting issues i couldnt find any major flaws in this model and the design is too sexy and iam going for that.
Any one has other opinions, u r welcome...
Hey guys is there any themes on samsung s8300 ultra touch?? Is there any link to download themes for this phone??? pls give me some link to download themes, I just want to change the girly look on this phone.. PLS PLS PLS PLS!!!!!!!
hey, i got this fon last week here in manila, Philippines. im wondering if anyone have tried to use the browser coz at the moment i can't use it. it always says connecting failed. i called my network provider (globe) and it gave me the access point for the connection but still its not working. can anyone from the Philippines help me with this? thanks :)
1 - you can have a phonebook of people shown by their pictures. so u can scroll through a seperate picture section, recgonise them by face and then call them
2 - very high screen resolution with an organic screen, that ultimately gives it an amazing finishing quality. when u turn the phone sideways as well it doesnt effect the screen quality either becuase of the high resolution and organic screen. really gives a big challenge to the iphone in terms of the screen quality.
3 - you can have ur camera pictures set so that whenever u take a picture, u can instantly set it up with your personal networking site including facebook and myspace. (samsung have a lot of other sites they are still speaking to, awaiting permission to put it up)
4 - you can have a "fake call" on your phone so u press a button and the your phone will begin to ring and will show on ur phone as a private number. then it continues to play a recording that u have set until u hang up. very good to get u out of the akward situations, whether u want to get away from your friends, or u feel ur being followed and want to scare someone away with a ringing phone.
...of course it has a lot of other features but these were a few that shown out
(just thought you might want to know)
leo, 28 Apr 2009In which colors is it available except for the blue and red?its also available in black and orange
Learn how to spell, jackass. I played with one of these recently and I'm not really blown away by it. I have the Omnia right now and I think I'll stick with it.
It just feels...off. The amount of time it takes to do simple things like load the contacts, is a bit of a concern. Ever since my TYTN I've been looking for a phone that responds well and I still haven't found it.
