Hi, just bought this phone from a friend. Turn out its a philipine's set & has not mandarin function in it. Can anyone help by teaching me if its possible to load mandarin program in it and how? Thanks.
If you are in your MP3 section, just go to options and select set as ringtone... It works... I got the phone 2 days ago... love it
I am a samsung fan,1st the E330,then D500,D900,E860V,now im about to try the U700....no serious problems incurred over the past years besides the occasional battery problem. Picture quality...perfect! ive owned many other brands and can honestly put my faith in Samsung.I use my ph daily, uploading pictures on site to my pc...magnificent!!! Keep it up Samsung,u've outdone yourself when it comes to style and simplicity.
Ok after changing from my ex D900 to U700 i do have some comments for you all. Basically this phone is smarter than D900, but major function wise, they are both good.
First of all U700 only have 41714k of internal memory. Which is smaller than D900. But thats not really a problem if you have a memory card, pictures and videos taken can be directly send into the card.
In fact, the Video camera's resolution (Only 176x144) for U700 as compared to D900, its a loss. U700 doesnt have the "U menu" function. Wheres replaced by "application menu" function, which u can access to 4 menus- internet,voice call,message and End all application."application menu" can be accessed anywhere when you are using the phone, even while u are viewing you calender for example.
However U700's camera is amazingly good. For them who are not sure,U700 still have its"White balance" and "exposure metering(spot & metrix) " functions. It capture high resolution images like 2048x1536 (with auto focus on) within a sec. And Camera flash light can be set as "Auto" by default, whereby D900 has to be switched manually everything u use it. Camera has improve quite alot for U700. However the phone's defaults to take image horizontally(which means u have to turn ur phone horizontally to take straight pictures)- This cannot be changed. However its what u see and what u get for ur picture taken. Another interesting function for the camera is the "camera button" on the side of the phone. By pressing it slightly, you are actually auto focusing your picture, hold it and it's auto focus will stay there. Press harder and you are capturing. Cool huh? Images and Videos taken, can be send into your memory card straight away.
However U700 doesnt have the TV out-port function that D900 has.
For those of you who are afraid of your mobile phone's buttons get flatted or worn out, U700 could really be your best choice. Yes, the touch screen is sensitive, if its not, how do you press? lol. I believe what some of you mean is that the touch screen buttons are very close together, therefore always press the wrong key u desire. But without using much strength, you can play ur keys effortlessly with its touch screen and extra smooth "ipod like" turning navigation. It also has a very nice and bright classy white keypad light.
On the main dialing page, when you press a few numbers, the phone will automatically display names from the phonebook that has the same few number. Which means you dont need to access the phonebook and search for names now, if you know 2-4 numbers of the recepient.
You can custom create MMS with your desire background colours, ect. Customising and Creativity is quite alot in U700 i would say.
Java games are now stored inside the gallery section with images and sound. Interesting?
One cute thing about U700 is that it includes Chinese calender(not sure about other countries). Anyway im staying in singapore.
Phone feels very smooth and metallic. Solid too. Its like holding a metal bar. If you have greasy hands, i believe everyone does, the phone will get very greasy :\
I will update soon again when i have the time :)
I bought my U700 2 days ago, not so satisfied with the video recording, for its awful resolution, and what does it means: MPEG4/H.263/Real video player ?
MP4 unsupported format, or only the resolution is to high for the player? I try to play 3GP format with 320x200, but it won't work. And where are the Java games?? I found the place, but the are no any games, even a demo. I changed my D820 for this U700, because HDSPA and 3,2MPx , but the D820 was better creating/watching video files.
The touch buttons are very sensitive.
But its beautiful, and the web is very fast...
Is there any java application which can play any mobile video formats?
replying 2 heba:
I dont know about the mobile problem but samsung sucks anyway i hate this company and btw u should have bought it at raya its better than ring not sure they have samsung though
if ur gonna change it go 4 a nokia or SE
hi! i just got my u700 and i can't find how to turn off the keypad sound..it really irritates me. please help me tnx!
another thing i don't like is that the video quality is so poor. also when i try to play mp4s i get the message "resolution not supported".. what gives?!
i have this phone.. nice design overall. its very stylish. the camera though is not so good. the pictures i take sometimes come out all yellowish.. any one here have the same problem?
btw, you can set mp3s as sms tones with this phone.
Hey xinapray, I just got an unlocked U700 to replace my aging T-Mobile SDA. Everything's great except that it doesn't support MMS and web browsing. T-Mobile is either unwilling or unable to provide the setting info to enable MMS and browsing. Anybody have helpful info?
I bought this mobile from 3 weeks,
I faced many problems with this mobile
- It restarts alone without touching it
- Battery is very bad u have to recharge it every day twice
The main problem:
Yesterday I found the mobile is restarting alone without reaching desktop, I tried to remove the battery and try again but it doesn’t work.
I went today to the service center of "ring"
It is one of the agents in Egypt,
And the surprise that they told me that Samsung send them email that there is problem in this mobile software and they have to upgrade all the mobile software.
This problem happens when you connect it to the computer via USB, and they prefer to use sim card reader instead of the USB.
Don’t know if that true or not,
I’d like to know if any one faces the same problem.
It happen with me twice, the first time after 3 days from buying the mobile and they changed the mobile, second time was yesterday they just upgrade the software.
If that is true, that is shame on Samsung.
I bought this phone a few days ago- I can say that this phone is pretty good, actually i really like it, and thats because of its simplicity although the touch buttons are sometimes problematic as i find myself occasionally cancelling out of various menus because the scroll wheel is located close to the end call button.
hey guys, iam asking if this phone can view doc. like(word, pdf....) thanks
Woot! i just bought my U700, still charging it right now. It looks fabulous! cant wait to try soon +D
I love samsung, my first phone was the d600, then the d900, & now the u700, it makes me feel sophisticated ... & its user friendly
iam planning to buy u700 but i need to know , does it have document veiwer or not ? thanks
