Battery life is quite short.
When picture is snapped, the picture reviewed is enlarged.
Anyone knows how to correct this?
Phone's resolution is great, touch screen is not too overly sensitive.
as a said before...LG GD900 will be the bombastic release this year!!It has everything and something more...!!It´s a "samsung S8300", but complete, better and with everything...and some more cute details!!
samsung should have done a better "homework" study of the market needs!!this s8300 is a beauty cellphone, but a BIG MISTAKE too!
if u dont see a function on this phone. please leave and dont make stupid comment like : omfg no wifi
brian again, 05 Apr 2009oh please samsung people, why oh why didn't you guys include wifi???
this phone has practi... moreI feel like emailing them to include wifi.
well at least the omnia hd will av everything what i need.
couldn't wait for omnia hd and got this phone.
apart from wifi, so far so good.
Could anybody tell me which route 66 will work on this phone?
I found that route 66 will work but I dont see this is neither symbian nor windows mobile.
One website seems to have the info but was different language.
Anyone have these issues: a) Zooming while recording video causes the zoom to jump creating very jerky playback. b) Very obvious distortion in video audio recording. c) Zooming in on photos in the photo viewer only zoomins in a tiny amount even at 10x. (This must be a bug.) dd) Cannot enter more than about 12 characters in the first field of a calendar entry. (I know this is more a social/camera phone, so the latter issue not critical.) Despite the above, a very cool social and camera phone. Not enough battery life or quick access PIM/PDA features for business tho. (Unlike the Nokia E71 that gets all that stuff right.) Why cannnot someone make a phone that blends the S8300 with an E71 and Xenon flash?
What kind of GPS Software runs on this phone? What kind of OS does it have?
oh please samsung people, why oh why didn't you guys include wifi???
this phone has practically everything i want but it has no wifi...
if this phone has a wifi then this would be the best phone there is right now...
bad idea samsung...
I got this phone 3 days ago I bought it as unlock phone. The design is cool. Very elegant. But I do have problem connecting to the internet. AT&T can't solve the problem. The touch screen design is OK but iphone is still the best when it comes to touch screen. Could anyone tell me how to remove the music player icon from the "desktop"? Hope my carrier AT&T could help me to connect this phone to their network so that I could enjoy the full potential of this phone.
what, has everything but no wifi???
now, why in the world would i buy this??
why did samsung release a new phone without wifi???
realy makes no sense...
Pep, 03 Apr 2009I just tried out the phone and I must say, it disapoint me. Its like Im holding a F480 (wich i... moreI have had an S8300 for a few days, and it's not slow if you don't use the widget screen. Switch to the apps screen and it's almost real time. Some things a a tiny bit laggy (such as the photo viewer), but you have to remember, it is manipulating 4MG files - 4 times the size of those on the snappier iPhone. There are some clever features, such as Fake Call (LOL) and the interface that appeard during a call is nice - very iPhone like in fact. No, it's not an iPhone, but it's fun and logical to use once you know all the ins and outs. Camera quality is mind blowing in good light.
undecisive, 04 Apr 2009is this phone good? how's the battery?? how's the UI? I really couldn't stand my previous ... moreGet the ultra tocco. stay away from full touch screens... textin just lost its fun and quickness!!
Got this phone this morning and i must say i am impressed with it.
My current old phone is an LG Viewty, and although this appears to lack the QWERTY keyboard which the preview model had (unless mines broken and it doesnt access it when i turn my phone), its not the end of the world. The touch screen is very responsive, but be aware its not designed to be PRESSED its designed to be touched or tapped, so no hittingit hard and then complaining when it doesnt do what you want.
Mine came with google maps on it and i must say it is rather fun, especially when it works with street view.
Battery on it may not last long if you constantly call, but it took me about 6 hours of constant fiddling, playing music and playing games to get rid of that last damned bar before i charged it!
Overall i would say it is a very nice stylish phone, a little impractical without the QWERTY but hey, you cant win em all.
im using this model it has very hanging problem nd beetry back-up is only 2hrs. continue only.
When it came, I was a bit disappointed because I liked tocco TOO much and it looks smaller screen and similar way of working. Nothing much new.
However, just to look into the phone itself, it's very good I can say.
1) 8MP it does the job very well. Compare to other 8MP phones, it is on it's way.
2) Sound channel. was it 5.1 something? GOOD!
3) very slim. Not many people will understand this is touch screen type of phone.
4) Scratch proof body. Haven't used long but I can feel.
5) gif wallpaper support and great speed when it connected to computer by pc suite.
6) battery. I am playing with it in all the way and the battery is still left half. (Well, this is compare to my previous motorola V9 or f480)
I am sure if the battery was made in Korea, it would last even longer. Viewty and F480 with korean battery did last 7 days with normal usage without charging further.
7) has 3types of font
8) Quick responsive touch screen.
to add one more really bright and clear screen.
So far So good!
ZeamoN, 03 Apr 2009i just got mine today. it's a pretty nice phone! i am impressed. it has pros and cons,,, feedb... moreI think it's just the network firmware.
It did happen to my previous tocco (F480) and after debranding it became quick.
I also upgraded to this phone and I don't see slow or anything you mentioned.
