Unlike some of these lame opinions mine will be somewhat GOSPEL cause I have the phone to reference my opinion. Prev had sony w850i and the u700 sound can't compare, but it's adequate and sounds real nice with the headphones. I'm a novice cellphone user and touch sensitive buttons are not that bad at all as others would say. The T9 texting is alittle tricky though and not as good as my sony. Haven't used the phone outside but the reflectiveness is not bad and the screens colors are FANTASTIC. I'm having problems getting on the web, but that's why I have a computer :) Sounds strong when I call. It is the tic tac toe grid :( but I new that in advance. Some of the tricky functions detract from the phone, but the LOOKS and EXTRA FEATURES more than make up for the minor set backs.
hey uhm i love the looks on this phone i just like to know about the speaker what other phone can you compare the speaker with does this u700 have treble/bass in the speaker and does this phone have any downfalls... it looks nice but is it durable and is the slide durable too? email me or post on here pls thank you.
3 very important questions before purchasing this thing:
- does the click wheel act as the click wheel on iPods, ie can you speed up the search in a long list, like the list of 250 songs on the SD?
- how often do you need to charge the phone?
- how good is the onboard interne browser?
thnx alot in advance!
Dexter_10, you should probably check your slide settings (under phone settings). I have no such problems with mine.
Xinapray, finally got a T-mobile techie who knew what to do. MMS and web access now installed, very easy. Typical usage (SMS, bluetooth, music player for workouts, occasional pix) usually gives me a day and a half to two days battery lfe. Default location for pix, video and sounds is on-board memory, you need to change to card for all three. No problems with touch buttons; they're deactivated when you press "Talk."
Whatever you do, do not get one of these phones!!!Had it for a month now.Built-in speaker volume too low.Face scratches too easy.Keys are too sensitive i.e. calls gets placed on hold when you try to answer the phone.Switches to speaker phone whilst I'm talking. I loose calls when I try to answer the phone and when I try to hang up, it won't. Dare I carry on... Will never buy a Samsung ever again. Be aware, U700 SUCKS!!!
Great looking phone, I had a lot of compliments. But I do not find it user friendly, because of the "touch screen". I would be on the phone, and if it touches my face, it drops the call. If I go in my menu, and I rest my finger to the side, it closes the menu. So I will be the selling the phone very soon.
I seriously cannot figure out how to change the default SMS ringtone!!! Please help! Please type out the steps that I need to follow...
I have this phone for a week now, it is a Love and Hate relationship.
Not too bad camera
Touch button are too sensitive.
Volume even those max is still too low
Cannot customise Left Right Button, but can customised Dpad buttons
I'm selling it.
the guy below.. what do u mean its better for women? is it a compiment or what.. becoz women easily understands how things work than man are.. setting the video length is easy, juz click the settings of the video then find the play time.. weeewww
I got one of these for my wife just a week ago. the phone is stylish and useful but have to confess however my wife is satisfied with it, I'm not. batter life is shorter than my D500..this goes just for 2 dayz, camera is fine but camcorder drives me crazy, couldn't figure out how to record longer, it just records couple seconds even if there's a gig of empty place in memory card. But after all.... i believe this phone is perfect for a female.it looks good and that's enough :)
Main problem is the sound/speaker and sucks if it is branded by a network
I wish to know if the samsung u700 is able to create folders in another folder which nokia phones do.
Eg; Creating a folder in a music folder to store your favourite songs.
I previously used a samsung phone once which is not able to have this function.Therefore, i switched to a nokia.Recently, my friend recommended me to buy this phone.I am considering.Thanks alot. :D
I had u600 and i changed to U700. U600 sucks for my case. I was intending to throw U600.
I used both U600 and U700.
U600 is faraway better phone. It has better software.
Now I have only U600. This is the best cell 2007.
I hate this phine and everything about it! Will sell it for R3 000! It is 2 months later and it still shows no number! The sound is K@K! I hate it!
hey joy are u sure the mp3 works for sms alert.. coz i tried a lot of times but it wouldnt..

@kimep... Thanks for the info. My U700 is enroute. When it gets here, I'll give it a whack and let you know if I'm successful.
