I've been using Samsung U600 for a month and i have to say im really impressed. Before, purchasing this product i was worried, because of some of the bad reviews it got for its touch sensitive buttons. I think this problem really depends on person as I have no hard time using this phone.
Positive - Sleek, very nice looking
- Big display
- Lots of features
Negative - if you use microSD card for
musics, videos, it will slow down the phone a bit and creates lag. But if u just use phones 60mb memory there's no slowdown.
- It's bit difficult to text message
- Camera's shutter is slow (2-3secs)
Also, i have questions for some readers, the ringtone rings low for 2 secs then goes to its full sound, how do u fix this?
Hello can anyone tell me about battery life on this phone? Is it good or? Also about the opinion of this phone generally. Coz i'm interested to buy it. Thanks. P.S. I'm fan of Motorola and don't know anything about samsung mobiles.
SE w800, Nokia 6300 and NOKIA 6233, SAMSUNG U600 is a nice phone if i will compare to my other phones,even the battery it depends how you will use the phone, the camera is good, if you want to use a good quality of picture use a Professional Camera same like i am using the Canon EOS 350D,the video is good the quality of course if you want to use a nice video use the Camcorder same like i am using JVC Digital camcorder, you know mobile user whatever what kind of mobile brand you are using once you buy already and use there will be no satisfaction at all, again you will need or buy another mobile phone, as what i have experience, therefore if you a good camera use professional camera or the digital and if you want to use a good video buy a dig. camcorder after all you will see the difference. most of all you will save money. think the future..... thx
U600 is a great mobile phone,i'm using almost a month, i have a N73ME,IMATE SP5m,SE
is it true? this phone doesn't have caller id, even those recieved messages, senders name are not recognized though their names are already saved in its phonebook? anyone?
I like it's style. I wanna buy it..
Rafsan, I agree with you. I had other mobile phones, and so far none offered me great satisfactions as this does. Without using a pc, you can do a lot of great things on it. It has enough qualities to make it a great one. It may not be the best samsunbg mobile ever, but it sure is a good one. I love it, and I'm enjoying every litlle moment that I have with it...
Dude this is a very good phone. But you can not use it roughly like nokia. Why people are saying camera works slow. My 4.0 mp canon digital cam also takes that much time.
I think its good this little time reminds you that you are using a real digital camera.
You can not use it well with 2gb memory. 1 gb
is enough for any people according to me.. 1 thing i want to advice you guys do not put your every video in a folder because if you do it , it will take more time to open. Make a separate folder for each video. Then it will work faster. Samsung u 600 rocks
Very good cell. It has camera bussines card recognition. You can download word excel pdf ppt like smartphone, but in small and fancy case...that's important.
Camera is a little bit slow but taken pictures uploaded on PC are top quality!!!
I had also Nokias and SE and nowadays I buy only Samsung slide phones.
Volume is also good and loud enough.
It has a FM radio and good MP3 player.
All melodies you can have for messages, also songs.
It can vibrate and ringing tohether.
Messaging is easy and font are adjustable--small, medium and large, and you can use 2 font types.
Sensor keya are very good and not too sensitive.
Injoy your U600
To Ray: U600 has a very loud loudspeaker. General have Samsung phones enouht loud loudspeaker and it's not depend of size/thickness. No problems with melodies and hearing speaking partner.
Why somebody writes against Samsung phones on Samsung forum? Kid who want to have beautifull Samsung and couldn't have one
Go to nokia or Moto forum and there write your opinions and advices! Don't disturb smart people!
Administrator where are you??? :))
OK i Still cant find a fix to the problem of contacts names not appearing on received messages.
What can you do to fix it and show names instead of their phone numbers?
Really Lesley??? Please go back to sleep and do not undermine the reviews of the unhappy. This phone is a piece of garbage. You obviously have never used a real phone that actually functioned. You would have to be insane or just stupid to rate this phone a 9.5. Relative to what? Look at the reviews. You do not see a recurring problem with the phone being too slow? Why don't you actually put a 2gb memory card in and then you tell me how great this phone is. When you are waiting nearly 45 seconds to play a video and current Motorola phone can play in around six seconds. Please do not come on here suggesting you did research. What research? You read a bunch of reviews from people who own the phone. But you chose to ignore some of the major faults of this phone because you want to like it in the first place. The camera is slow, every function that involves the memory card being read is slow to the point of being bizarre. It is not only strange, but astonishing as to how slow this phone operates when reading the memory card. It is not even the case of this phone just being a bit on the slow side. IT IS SO SLOW. What about the battery life??? Are you going to say that it is also good? The battery life on this phone is shocking. The battery drains so quickly that even I was baffled. What about the bluetooth functions? Having to connect every single time you want to make a call even if the headset was recognized? You think that is acceptable? My 1999 Ericcson T39 connects without any bs, why not this phone? Have you compared the text messaging to any other phone? I can tell you I have, and this phone is terrible to text with for so many reasons. I have addressed many of them previously. There are other issues that may be preference/taste related. The horrible battery life and slow speed of this phone are nothing to laugh about.
I did a lot of research before buying this phone. From hundreds of opinions I've read, I've come to the conclusion that most people who are unhappy with it are those that have a hard time with high-tec things. I bought it unlocked for a great price. I'm very happy with this phone. It doesnt freeze on me at all. I rate it a 9.5
I have had my U600 for 3 weeks and it has not been function as well as it was wen i got it :O
e.g. cant save edited photos and it gets so hot when it shouldnt.
Has anyone else had this problem????
use the manual...it's easy boys and girls...camera, messagges, all it's easy...if you have time and patience to read the manual...and get a taste of the phone...
