hey guys of arena.. on the official samsung web site is mentioned a 690 mAh battery in the specs.. an not a 960 mAh battery as mentioned in your specs.. if this U100 battery sucks as much as the X820 battery.. this design is just a waste of time.. I expect not only flashy features but a very good lifetime battery.. (see at sonyericsson or the new nokia's)
WOW.......now dis is da slimmest fone in WORLD RECORD pple.....funny when u question da memory card slot coz it probably cant fit knowing dat it doesnt fit to x820 so wat makes u guys think its gonna fit in this one lol....probably samsung is tryin to make it a slimmest as the memory card itself hahaha mad pple.....
This phone would be amazingly popular if it was able to accept SD cards or at least have a fairly large internal memory (512 Mb). Unfortunately, I'm looking for a phone that can hold a fair size of songs and this one doesn't cut it.
and here a very short review of U100
well, guys who still wondering it's batt life here is a link to it's official site
it's 4.5hr talktime, and that's good enough for me. i think im going to buy this SGH-U100 after considering both U100 and U300. hehe.
why stated in above spec it has 220x176? i saw the resolution is 320x240 from it's fivenine pdf brochure (provided by someone here before). and it's also 320x240 from my local newspaper (malaysia). UE II all 320x240 IINM.
Features are good but not good design.its too long and wide.Only feature, it is thin.
Buy this mobile on ur own risk....! hmm
Very good find Mr Fishy. So it looks like this does have FM radio which is great.
I notice on the spec sheet it says:
Battery (Standard) Li-ion, 690mAh
Talktime: up to 2.5 hours
Stnadby: up to 185 hours
Which looks like it'll need charging daily :(
@The people who want to know about the U100 having a Sterio FM Radio see link form samsungs own site prf brocher...
hi, can someone please help me to know if the battery on this models same size of x820??????
Reading some comments on the lack of external memory and that the 3mp camera is wasted with only 70mb of memory... that is enough to hold over 50 pics @ 3mp which is hardly unreasonable. Yes, we always want more but I think it will suffice for most people!
Also the battery I see is Li-Ion 950 mAh compared to Li-Po 630 mAh on the X820. I hope this means a much improved battery life (I was reading Li-Po is better for less fire risk, Li-Ion keeps capacity better) as it has 50% more mAh.
If it can come close to the D900 for battery life, I will buy instantly.
The only thing holding me back from ordering this is the lack of battery life specs - very conspicuous by it's absence given that the phone is out in 3 days in the UK.
Also I have not seen one website quote the specs with a radio so.... not a deal breaker for me, just an observation. As an overall piece of kit though, it's very appealing.
Just to point out that this phone HAS got an F.M Radio. Also you CAN select an mp3 to have as your txt message tone. Two major problems between nokia and samsung phones resolved. Well done samsung. I will be getting this phone when it comes out.
This phone is due for release on 18th May in UK so we'd all love to hear opinions on the phone's functions when you get it. And also on battery life (how does it compare to X820 which was original Ultra Edition?) This is Ultra Edition II which is supposed to have better power efficiency.
Some things to point out.
To the person who said Samsung are making thinner phones and taking away features; they're not! These are brand new designs made with brand new materials, so they're NOT taking away features such as memory card slots, they're just not adding the features. You don't have to buy one of these thin phones. Samsung have plenty of others which are still thin AND have memory card slots. I don't mind if my phones have memory card slots or not as I back up my photos and videos to my PC when the internal memory is getting low.
