So lots of talk for little really : there is high CIF recording for normal video and low QCIF for MMS messages, like so many other Samsung phones. I want one, still not available here in Bangkok !
Found som info from someone who got the phone..
"352 x 288 for unlimited recording and 176 x 144 for MMS messages."
"When you have the setting to unlimited recording time it records in Mpeg 4 in the highest quality. When you limit the recording time to mms capacity it will record in 3gp at a lower quality.
The flash is the basic photo light similar to previous ones."
will putting a bigger or more memory card into the phone enable the better video res you might have to put a certon size card to enable it its just why have it in the menu faded out ?????
so the u600 can only take qcif recording after all....that is strange why would they have the higher resolution setting in the phone but doesn't allow user to choose it??
either way its a shame that such a nice phone and a new release by samsung has these fault settings.
does the samsung u600 save sent messages unlike previous models of samsung e900 and d900
Very strange that the CIF mode is present but unavailable... My two year old and 200$ E770 has very good CIF(352x288)recording.
That was my main reason for buying a Samsung phone. Or maybe they want us to buy the more expensive U700 ?
Samsung U600 DOES NOT have CIF video mode. I checked phone in O2 today, The phone is set to sub-standard qCIF mode as default. The higher resolution are shown as options but the higher setings are in faded font and CANNOT be selected the option to users it to use a useless 3 year old technology. It is an insult to customers that samsung feels it can inculde such 3rd class features in the latest phone.
Any comment about the loudness of the phone, for phone calls, ringtones and listening to mp3 via loudspeaker?
The unit unit does have CIF video, 352X288 MP4, just search the menus.
people lets get serious this phone is a joke!!! my 12month old E900 has CIF video recording. The U600 the outdated Qcif video mode. It
can someone pls confirm how is the mp3 quality compare to the d900??is it better or does it remain the same....
can someone that owns this phone pls let me know .....thinking about purchaseing this nice phone really soon ...thx
Geez thats a disapointment, no CIF video
What the hell is wrong with Samsung??? Why the hell would you downgrade such an important spec in your latest model phone.
Other than its a hot looking phone.
I like it.
Bought this phone yesterday and so far so good.
Only thing i have noticed is that in order to close the camera you have to go into the menu and select exit, you cant just close it by pressing the cancel button.
The maximum video recording size is 352x288
Touch sensitive buttons are great, much better than the E900
Would deffinately recommend the U600.. dont be put off by the touch buttons!
U700 is 3g phone with real playerand 3 megapixel cam!
while U600 is only edge with 3.2 megapiixel and probably is cheaper compare with U700
Looks like this superb phone is really only recording in QCIF video. What a shame....
Your 10/4 message is wrong. Although, you can put a 1 gig card in the D900, it can only use up to 500 meg.
Can the U600 save direct to card?
check out what this very website says about the cameras!! i've taken the details from the u700 part of the website.
u700 just isnt as sexy lol plus i'd have to wait longer and im too impatient
man the U600 and the U700 have exactly the same camera with 2048x1536 resolution! It means that both phones is ~ 3.2 mega.
and i dont like the touch sensetive buttoms. i much prefer u700 wich dosent have sensetive buttoms, but is has insteed music wheel for the ipod minded. it has also HSDPA and full html support.
