The samsung u700 is an ok phone except i got it 2 weeks ago and 2 day after purchase it looked second hand. all the screen was scratched and all the paint work is coming off don't buy this phone its rubbish.
I have now owned this phone for almost a year and I have to admit I'm really unimpressed. At first glance, the phone looks great, but within three months, almost all of the chrome finish had worn off. The software is excellent, but completely incompatable with mac platforms. The battery life has become so short I need to charge my phone twice a day. The alarm speaker is too quiet and seldom wakes me up. The navigation wheel is jammed and doesn't work. The centeral "apply" button spring went about 4 months ago, and also doesn't work. Frustrating! I know three people who have also owned this phone for a period and all of them complain bitterly. Mainly about the touch-sensitive buttons which are impractical and placed too close together. It is really easy to hit the cancel button while typing a sms, which drives me blinking mad.
Sorry Samsung, I'm switching back to more a reliable Nokia.
Samsung U700 is one of the most stylish and sleekish mobile that you can find. The battery lifespan is not bad despite a lot of people commented that the battery would only last less than 4hours even on standby. I have been listening to music, calling people and it can even last me one and a half day. The battery lifespan is much improved. Great 3.2 megapixels camera with autofocus. We can even set our own sms alert tone. The ringtones is not that loud enough but when u fix the earpiece.. Omg.. Its louder than Sony Ericsson K800i. Great phone and worth to buy. 3.6Mbps HSPDA phone.. Excellent phone created by Samsung. But if it includes WiFi on this phone, this make it a perfect phone. The camera is better than Nokia N73. It is not 4 times zoom but 13 times zoom. Good job Samsung. Hoping to try Samsung U900 Soul. An upgrade of Samsung U700.
Hi, i lost my samsung D900i and i was very upset cos i loved that phone, i happend to go out today and bought myself a u700 but now reading all of these comments its actually making me wonder, is the samsung u700 really such a bad phone. Fine on the whole samsung battries dont last long i know cos ive been through 5 samsung phones already from the e360 e370 to the e250 z500 d900i then now the u700. I like samsung phones im aware of the peeling and vodacom told me they will have it resprayed cos its under warrenty till like forever. Lets hope i dont have as many problems as u guys are having. Im a die hard samsung fans, nokia are for old ppl - too user friendly i like challenges. ;)
no i think you should buy it i have it and it really is a great phone.
well my problem is solved! I already downloaded a game in my phone... how?... just go to browser then just download some games in the menu that is compatible with the phone... but you can't download a java software from computer... but it's still ok...
sounds???... the first time you let your u700 play music it's really disappointing because its really low but when you always let play example for 4 hrs. no stopping in playing some mp3 songs... the sound or the sound of the phone will get louder and louder!
So, U700 is very a great phone... and to prevent the peeling thing on your case just put a crystal case or g-mask it...
I recommend this phone to all people!
It's the best!
To lock your phone,
The standard lock no. is 1234 on all phones

I have had my mobile phone for a couple of weeks now and so contented I am having such a marvelous mobile. There are also some problems with it undeniably but the aapearance beauty vanishes them all.
Is there anyone here who knows how to boost its battery charge??
or anyone knowing how to protect its LCD?
my problem is i have samsung u700,and i want to lock my phone.but i dont now phone lock code, i want to on my phone lock system , then after no body can see my sms and call , how i can do that
After i have read all this posts about u700, i really don't want to buy it any more. I want someone to clear me about this phone, should i buy it or not? Thank you all.
I have samsung u700 it's very nice and elegant.I only had it for 2 months and it's have very low sound and more disadvanteges.
""Can somebody pls tell me how do I download and change the sms tone of my U700? It seems that I can only use the standard msg tones that the phone is sold with. Can I change that?""
Yea you can, just go to your main menu --> Settings --> Phone Profiles --> (Highlight Normal) and press options --> Edit --> Press right on your wheeley --> Message Alert Tone --> options --> Change and it should give you the option of using the preset tones or a tone of your own =)
I didnt like it, i bought it and exactly 2 months later i sold it :s, yeah it looks nice but
1- you cant change the Thems
2- You cant install jad,jar applications on it
3- Its sound is a little bit quiet
and more disadvantages, so i just dont recomment this phone :)
Stylish (the black one is hte best)
High speed internet
could not replace the themes
-Can i d-load a Game from EA-Mobile coz i really want NBA Live on my phone.
- Is there anyway i can replace the themes.
-How can i maximize the battery life.
- Where are the EMOTICONS...(i have it in my SGH-E250 but i can't find it wiht U700.)
Please don't compare U700 to other phones...they're incomparable....this is far a great phone than those you compare with.
i have this U700 for nearly 3weeks now. I can say its a great phone. when my workm8s saw it. they say 'its Hot!(it really is). Its stylish, elegant(you can even use the screen as a mirror)thin, the center wheel is very unique and it has a very smooth slide. Samsung is really the best when it comes to slide phones. I've already d-loaded games in it(it doesn't have pre-installed games)and i've also used mp3 as msg ringtone.
This is really a great phone except for the battery. i'm having it fully charged in the morning, not using it but when it comes overnight...the next day, i find it it drained.(i've already read the opinions here, maybe its really the ambient temp. and the poor signal that affects the batt. life.)
overall....a success for samsung. Great phone! A phone for Smart people! (for hte ones complaining its not user friendly, READ THE USER'S MANUAL & THE VIEW THE CD MANUAL PROVIDED WHEN YOU PURCHASE THE PHONE AND YOU'LL FIND U700 TO ONE OF THE GREATEST PHONE YOU'VE EVER HAD......TNX & GOD BLESS!
why take it straight to Samsung when you should to it to your servies provider(MTN,voda,Cellc,Virgin) then they will send it off 2 Samsung 4 u!
Hey, can someone plz tel me how many mesages can this phone take?
