Here here!! I like this phone and no matter how many people complain, I'm getting it, If I don't like it once I get it then thats my own fault :-)
You are right.. well.. in fact i should correct some errors from earlier inputs..!
1, the phone has 4 touch-sensitive keys (two are placed on the frontdisplay, and the other two are the "call" / "end call" - i know this will irritate some, but fact these two also are kind of "touch-sensitive.. cause they dont really respond when pressed"
2, you can adapt your own ringtone to contacts, you can also adapt your own txt-message tone
3, the keypads takes a while getting used to, like every other new phone we buy
4, the cam has 3.2mpix, and a flash - only bright when pressing the cam-button (sad that we cant use this a a kind of flashlight)
5, Rds-radio, with ICE-system from B&O
6, No 3G, but EDGE
7, If you have the phone on silent, and set the wake-up-alert, the phone Will sound in the morning.. even though its on silent mode
8, the phone suports 2GB MicroSD (not 4gb)
9, the slidingmechanism is rather good actually, it springs back nice when opened or closed
10, and last but not least.. read the manual if u aren't sure about the phonecapabilities!
/najks you are correct, allot of people on here obviously don't have the brain capacity to adapt to a new phone... or even read the f'ing manual! most of the things people say it can't do it can - FACT! I have it here in front of me doing those things!!! anyway, its just a phone at the end of the day... is anybody really that bothered?
Well.. maybe the problem is you, not the functions of the phone? :)
This phone is awful - what is the point of having so much stuff on this phone if it cant even do the basic stuff like make a call and text - what is going on??? I sent it back straight away before it raised my blood pressure too high - im texting someone - next second im calling them... please dont get this phone - it may look good but thats as far as it gets.
In fact - i cant understand why some say that you resets txt-messages, or delete things by accidently pressing the "C" "touch-sensitive button.."
... When in fact, the phone asks if you want to Save txt-message before you quit it...
Is it just me, or is everyone else wrong?
Just a little question!
Anyone knows the difference between Li-ion Polymer and Li-ion batteries for phones?
Some say that the Polymer-type has better stamina! But some say that there isnt such a thing as a Li-ion Polymer.. only Li-ion OR Polymer -batteries..
Someone, please help!!!
Comparing the u600 to LG shine?
Well LG Shine is a little more sturdier, but why does it only comes with a 2.0mpix cam?
The samsung may have some issues with the touch-sensitive key, but i think its only a matter of "getting used to"!
As for the Nokia N95, isnt that the one with GPS and 5mpix? Or is it the N97? Anyway the one with 5mpix and GPS isnt sturdy at all, in fact it wobbles a lot - because of the sliding mechanism that works both ways (1, to reveal the keypads, 2, to reveal the mp3-player function) And its about 20mm thick!!?
Well.. anyway, way must Nokia build such thick phones? Why cant they, like samsung try to diet down the unescesary size?
Here in Sweden the u600 has been availible in about 2-3 weeks now.. and every time ive tried it in a store - it doesnt seem to wobble that much, or have problem with the touch-sensitivt keys! The good thing that they thought of when they developed was that the phone is locked when your in a call (so you wont accidently press "hang up..")
Just got the U600 as an upgrade. Chose it over the LG Prada and already thinking I made a mistake. The touch-sensitive buttons, particularly the "c", are easliy pressed by accident and I have lost texts and games when half way through. The battery life seems very short as well. I do think the design is great and there are plenty of good features, but I don't think these make up for the faults. Probably exchanging it for the LG. Anyone compared the two? Thanks
i bougth the U600 without trying it before and i'v read all "bad" things about it. But still, i love the phone!!
Some people love their Nokia N95, for me it's a horrible ugly phone, but with great features.
The U600 combines beatiful looks and good ergonomics, packed with great features.
So for me, this phone rocks and i'm looking forward to future Samsung Ultra phones.
If some people don't like this phone and are not going to buy it, then why do they still posting comments here?
Yes, the review from the mobile-review.com was full of errors than the actual features of the samsung u600. It is very strange why they posted some false information. It is true that they only cut and paste the review from the samsung d900 and that's it.
Samsung U600 has some improved features compared to D900 (example customization of message tones and others).
Need a confirmation..!
Anyone tested the samsung x820-battery
on the u600 phone? Some say it will work!
Or course you are right, and I will test it as soon as it's available (where I'm from it isn't yet). The only reason why I wrote stuff here was because I just find it peculiar how some people absolutely love, say, the touch keys and others hate them.
Anyway, I guess U600 is questionable in a way that we all should test it too see for ourselves how good or bad it is.
No cellphone is perfect.. certenly not Nokia - pointless big phones! The u600 - like every other phone - is not perfect!
Sure the keys could be a little more tactile, but is it really so important? Its good enough to txt on, i send about 10-15sms each day, works fine!
But if the tactile feeling brings an unescesary big phone like the Nokias, then its maybe not so nice to have better keys(?)
The lack - as some say - of tactile keys, maybe its rather good if its preventing Samsung from making "bricks" like Nokia(?)
And.. those who making points on how "flimsy and wobbly" the u600 are, they must be trying to the max to prove that its not as sturdy as any other phone!
Take any "clamshell" phone out there, bend it "a little to much" and u will experience that it isn't sturdy at all!
Its all a matter on how u use the phone, any phone (clamshell or slider, Nokia, SE, Motorola or Samsung) can be "flimsy", you just have to set your mind to it..!
Please.. just dont post reviews of a phone, try it actually yourself.. Before u go and write how un-ergonomic and not sturdy it is.. Maybe YOU could get an opinion of your own for one times sake? :)
Wow, it seems like some people refuse to see anything bad about this mobile. :D That tells you something. I'm sure no-one here is saying that U600 is a bad mobile or even that it has horrible ergonomics. However, there are just so many reviews and owner opinons on the net saying the same things over and over again: about the wobbliness (although not everyone has it), about the irratition touch keys cause and about the mediocre keypad.
Actually, I've read more than one opinion where people have bought U600 and then wanted to sell it because they thought it wasn't that good and that D900 was better.
So while people like me have to accept the fact that without testing this mobile we can't say for sure that it isn't that ergonomic, you people who a pro-U600 have to accept that U600 just isn't perfect and not for everyone.
I think U600 is one of the better fashion sliders out there. Surely when you look at all the bells and whistles it has it's one of the best smaller high-tech mobiles out there. However, no mobile is perfect and U600 has some issues with ergonomics -- at least in terms that it isn't for everyone.
But I guess discussing this is a bit pointless as there will always be people who say only good or bad things about a certain mobile.
You're right, and that guy who trashes down on the u600, probably never tryed the phone before judging - and posting incorrect info from a site that's full of missinformation!
Try the phone yourself, at a local store, and get a opinion, it's a great phone!
The review from mobile-review is a joke ! The author just cut and paste from the D900i review, and is full of errors
Just to say something:...
The keypad isn't flat at all, the keys respond (not much in fact, but enough..) when you press them. There's no worry to press several keys at once actually!
But a thin mobile, with great holding, has to cut down on the keys, they cant have plastic-knobs like some Nokia-phones, nor either razor-sharp like the new thin SE!
So to compare some nokias, the new thin SE and the Samsung u600 - the u600 really win!
Well they (ergonomics) are at least questionable. Anyone here who says that the ergonomics of U600 are perfect are obviosly lying or don't know what they are talking about. Yes, some like the ergonomics and some don't. But a plastic super slim mobile with a flat keypad and touch keys CANNOT have perfect ergonomics, and that's an absolute fact.
Just to make things clear (as said in the review), some of you probably like using U600 and some of you don't. All I'm saying is that two things are absolutely clear: 1) U600 does not have the perfect ergonomics 2) not everyone will like U600's ergonomics.
