1st...ok this phone got a good reso of 320x240 n 256k colour BUT,dont think of beating the supreme graphics oi panasonic 16 million colours
2nd...vga camera.too cheap.hand phones nowadays are either installed with 1,1.3 or 2 MP camera.only when the company wanna make an economic phone specially for the "not so rich" people then they'll use vga or cif camera to cut the cost
3rd...design is awful.i think even the old classic 8910i of nokia looks far more elegant n more unique than this...dunno what "ART"
4th...1000 euros??this is insane.i wont waste so much money just for something "special"
5th...3 hours talk time??this is bad...real bad...with a poor/weak specification it should be able to handle up to 6 hours.this proves that this phone is using crap lithium ion batteries even if they state 800 mAh
6th...no card slot??what the...
7th...no games...what the...
8th...12 polyphonics??no mp3??what the...nowadays most of the phones are >40 polyphonics even for economic phones like samsung x480
9th...i dunno what else to say...dunno which brainless rich guys gonna buy this phone n show off...but i'll be sure to laugh at them.not respect them :p
it is so obvious that this phone...is...really...a...piece...of...master "ART"...ooopppsss...i mean a thrash...or crap...or...whatever...
Where is camera module?? Is that possible take a picture??
very ugly and looks bad.
i have never seen something like that.It is like an alien dropped down to earth.It is great man.
You all hate it? Excellent its not meant for you. This is made for those who appreciate the finer things in life, those who dont want to see anyone else with the same phone, those who want something special, those who want something simple. It is a simple and a completely new concept, for that well done B&O.
But... Why work with samsung? Surely Nokia or Motorola would have been a better choice?
I got one word for this phone.... "GAY" maybe a couple more... ummm "UGLY","DISASTER"
It looks like those ugly alarm clocks they give out at conventions....Good Luck!!
samsung have u started to recruit insane people, who may be high on crack. This a totally absurd phone in fact the most absurd phone i have ever seen. keep up the good work and you will have unlimited profits.....SMUCK!!
Do you really think that this phone deserve the price of 1000€?!?
If that's so, please, open your eyes and wake up!
That phone has really crap features.
-No megapixel camera, but only VGA
-No Symbian OS
-Uncomfortabre keyboard inverted with the display
-The words Samsung and Stylish cannot stay together in the same sentence, even if you write Bang&Olufsen between them.
If you want a stylish phone buy Nokia 7280, Motorazr v3, or Nec L1.
If you want a Status Symbol Phone buy a Vertu model.
If you want an all-in-one handset buy a Nokia N-series model, Sharp 903 or HTC Universal.
Anyway don't waste your money on this phone.
It will never put in evidence your status, but only your lack of intelligence.
And the point of this phone is. . .looks ugly. . .crap camera. . .low resolution, very confused
I am a big fan of Samsung products, but when I saw Serene, looks like Nokia 7280. Only for the sake of style & fashion, not more. Only people who have more than 2 mobile phones, then buy this one to show off
In contrary to most of you, this phone is great. We have to look from a Scandinavian point of view, I mean this might look strane or even absurd for Americans, but this is very nice. This is something revolutionary. Samsung and B&O have proven to the world that the buttons of a mobile does not have to be below the screen! The screen is simply great. 1.9 inch with 240 x 320 px, which means more than 6500 pixels in 1cm x 1cm.
The camera resolution is quie enough as the concept of the phone is simplicity.
well it really does look like a calculator n make up mirror.base on the vote its so obvious that no 1 appreciate this phone(including me).both the fucntion n design is awful.i dunno anything bout ART since i cant appreciate it n i dun even wanna appreciate it.really hurt my pocket.
It's a shame that american public can not appreciate the classic and defined scandinavian lines of B&O...
Hey, you guys who said it is bad don't announce anything without thinking deeply. Do you think Samsung can't make great phone which cotain heavy secifications? They have technology. This phone has different concept, and they made this phone by following concept.
You don't understand, this phone is being sold on the principle of design. It will be brought out under the Bang and Olufsen name, and for that reason alone, will sell. It certainly will not be worth the 1000 euros that is being asked, but neither is the nokia 8800 worth the money you have to pay for it, and thats designed by nokia!
Fashion concious people with more money than brain cells will buy it.
Bang and olufsen are a great company, but when it comes to this, they have really lost the plot. It looks awful, i mean if you look past the 'simple' beauty propaganda it is a truly horrendous looking phone.
What this is trying to do is become the mobile version of the ipod, but is going to end up the way of the dinosaur.
Oh well thats what happens when you let loopy swedish designers off the leash.
Ahh, such is life......
hi.samsung v need fones not caluculators!!!!.loww resloution camera!.no card slot this suckssssssssssss!!!!!
LOL, to those who feel bad about this phone. Haven't you read about this phone?. This phone is intended for the rich and famous and not for you who cannot afford it. This phone is not for the masses. So do not compare it to other crap brand (sharp or panasonic) that cannot put a big sale on thier full features phones. LOL
REMEMBER, THIS PHONE IS FROM SAMSUNG,LIKE A BMW CAR OR ROLEX WATCH.
