To Madonion : I guess to copy a big video directly to the memory card you can use a card reader, no ?
Actually i think thats a bit of a lie, because u wont find a X820-battery with the capacity of 1000Mah, due to its slimness!
Or would u disagree??
The battery u bought for X820, is it a 1000Mah Li-Ion POLYMER battery!??
here is a review and all the colours of the phone! http://www.mobile-review.com/review/samsung-u600-en.shtml#battery
My girlfriend bought me a new u600 for my birthday! Boy first thing i noticed is the big beautifull screen! WOW!
The touch keys feels sooo freeking smooth on my fingers :D.
The u600 comes with a 690mah battery, i went and bought a X820 1000mah battery so thats adding almost double the battery life, going from 2-3 normal use to 4-6 :D.
i like that the camera is hidden behind the back and not open like all other phones!
Mp3 is nice and loud! it has changeable equalizers but no custom ones.
*To take operator logo off!* go to Text Display / Idle text display / Text position off.
*The camera function has two modes, when you click on (camera) you can change iso, white balance and when you click on (Scene) you can change it to auto, outdoor, beach/snow ect. cant do that in camera mode. Weird i know lol.
A few annoyance:
*if you save your pics to mem stick you cant edit them =/, you cant copy them to my photos to edit them. only save to phone to edit them.
*I coudnt find a way to copy videos directly onto the mem stick from computer, so that means i can only load a 50mb file onto the phones memory then copy it from there to the memory card. ANYONE KNOW HOW TO COPY A VIDEO DIRECTLY TO MEM CARD?
Well, I hear in many countries sapphire blue is the only color available. In other countries (like in mine), blue, red and gold (copper) are available. And I hear in some countries black is available although this seems to be quite rare. I haven't heard anything of the platinum and white versions.
IMO, platinum is the best looking colour with this mobile. Black is so old now with Samsung. Red and gold are more of a woman's choice. And the blue one (which most of U600's have)... well, I think it's a bit bleak-looking -- it doesn't excite that much.
Recieved my u600 other day and have to say its a pretty impressive phone, like some other people on here though mine does feel a bit wobbly when open but its not that bad.
Had mine about 2 days now and the battery already needs charging but as of yet i havn't done the 15 hour charge that they recomend you to do but i have bought the X820 battery for it ebay from seller 88trading for a fiver! Bargain!!
The touch sensitive buttons do take some getting used to i've never had a phone with these buttons before and when typing out a text if i move my finger a bit and brush the button slightly i find myself ringing them and as soon as it starts dialing it locks the keypad.
The camera is a very slow at taking pics compared to some phones i've had but the quality of the pic is very good.
People have been complaining about the alarm so i set my phone to silent and set the alarm then turned the phone off and mine worked! the firmware on my phone is U600ADGC2 if thats of any help?
Also people are saying about the sent tone when sending a text? mine has never done this so there must be somewhere it can be turned off?
hope this helps anyone =]
I got this phone yesterday and noticed the screen has a "dead" pixel. And also it wobbles a lot and also makes a cracking sound. But everyfing else is 5*
What about the SE W880?! With the "razorsharp" keys, isnt that a BIG downstep even for SE?
Or like the latest Nokias, big knobs for keys, ofcourse noone would like to press down the wrong key.. but i meen, come on..!
The nice features with u600 is probably that it isnt like most of the slide-LGs, when you allmost cant press the keys in the upper end of the keypad - due to LGs ergonomic problems with the design of the keypad!?
Dont know why some rack down on the ergonomics on u600, maybe some of us like the idea of a phone with normal-sized keys?
And what about this problems with the "touch-keys.." come on, use your learning-abilities!
Well.. well.. some will allways stuck on petty things like the lack of tactile feeling in the keys, how do u think they managed to do such a slim phone(!?)
I have noticed one thing reading these opinions. People go on and on about the specs of this mobile and only compliment its ergonomics and usability when somebody is critizing them. Personally, I think is somewhat stupid to only look at specs. When I'm shopping for a mobile, I look for a mobile that is a pleasure to use and that looks nice. 3G, 3-5MP camera, FM Radio, mp3 player... all this things are nice, but they are really extras. Mobiles are for calling and texting primarily, and it seems to be that nowadays people are complimenting the most those mobiles that have great specs -- paying little or no attention to what really counts. This can be seen best with those who hype up every new Motorola mobile.
I think U600 is a really cool slider, but sometimes I guess people tend to praise it "for the wrong reasons". As for ergonomics, having tested it a couple of times I can defintaly say that they are questionable and this mobile is defintaly not for everyone. Some people like texting with that flat (okey, it's not complitely flat but come on... everyone can see that it's pretty darn near flat) keypad and some people don't mind getting used to the touch keys. However, compared to previous Samsung mobiles and most Nokia and SE mobiles, U600 can be a little bit ankward to use. And you are right to say that Nokia and SE mobiles do not have all the cool specs that U600 has... Then again, specs will always come second to how easy and nice it is to call and text with a mobile.
Can anybody tell me that this phone's mp3 is good when compared to w850 of se. Does it has any equilizer persets. Please reply.
Haha, u need to sort out your priorities, "its slim AND fat" ??
Please make up your mind!
A fact, its almost not any taller than for example SE K610. The thinner the better u know :)
U should tell that the K550i isnt even near the samsung u600 in specs!
K550i doesn't have a 3.2mpix, not a soundsystem of B&O (Ice), and so on..
So its all a matter of opinion, but if you should compare so do it with a phone thats similar, like the new SE K810 (talk about a thick phone, about 20mm.. and an anoying lenscover that isnt kind of slim at all)
yes its slim but its awkward to hold,,its fat and tall wich outways its thinness and batterry is awful sent it back got another small fone k550i great mp3 player SMALL super battery the lot..thes fones are really big if youve had one wen you get somthing small it maybe bick thicker but their better to hold
Esato news shown a picture of a samsung phone named "sliq"
Could anyone tell is there any way of getting hebrew support for the U600?
Anyone knows of a good site with lots of downloads for Samsung-mobiles?!
