A superb phone! I don't know why Samsung advertised the U900, when they should have advertised this instead!
The camera quality is one of the best ever and many people mistake it for a digicam, even though it's only a 3mp - I use it at 1.3M!
I've also dropped it quite a 3/4 times, but the rubber around the edges seems to have protected it, so still no scraches or problems.
The only downside, it's extremely slow (especially web browsing with the ancient and rubbishy 'NetFront' browser). The call quality is terrible - people find it very difficult to hear unless I speak up or I'm in a closed environment. And the middle 'rocker' key (up/down/left/right/enter) look as though it may fall off eventually - so I'm protecting it as much as possible.
Nevertheless, as I simply only use it for SMS / Camera / and the odd phone call, the phone is simply excellent, especially the professional design.
@Official: No downloaded themes for it, but you have built in theme creator, with all features, including background, patterns, colour tones, transparency, button shadows, fonts. Perfect in my opinion.
Phone is slow if you keep a lot of sms'es. I usualy keep only 10 -20 and works perfectly, no lags in terms of seconds. Yes, a few miliseconds you can see when entering the menu. That is miliseconds.
Also, use a phone cover and it will look perfect even after 1 year. Enjoy!
becx_ray, 30 Jan 2011I just lost this phone on new year eve. It is a great phone. Though. It fell down many time on... moreAs far as know it's not under production anymore but you can always get a second hand one. I just did that a few days ago and I'm still overexcited of it. Simply love this phone. From my point of view it's 10 out of 10.
I just lost this phone on new year eve. It is a great phone. Though. It fell down many time on rough surfaces (2feet) and once in a pail of water. But still working amazingly. I don't have to buy memory & have many song+pictures stored in. Another thing is its the cheapest 3G phone around as it is released few years back.I love the steel cover and many envy me of having this phone at very cheap price. I bought it only at MYR350. I wonder where they still have this. I want it back.
its actually durable its still run smoothly and my phone is 30 month old!!! the only down side is the metal casing is very hard to find!!!
can anyone please tell me if i can install downloaded themes for samsung sgh u800???
bad phone , proseceor is very slow , skin of the phone is getting out . not recomended at all .
signal arent good, navigation too slow, keypads are just glued--my up, down, left and right and the OK key fell somwhere--i ended up using my this unit with half naked key pads...i just love the camera very useful for me, it has really good quality...
Suga B, 30 Sep 2010I agree. The battery doesnt last long. And my navigation keys are half glued in.the battery dooesnt last very long and my d pad has come off already after a month and i notice this phone experiences lags even just opening the menu and more noticeable when opening the sms creator. did u experienced this too or anybody?
sammy, 07 Nov 2010nah man this phone is the best ever...........i dropped it how many times and its still workn.... morethis phone is ultra slow when opening anything even the menu is unbelievaly slow
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2010this cellphone is no good,why?nah man this phone is the best ever...........i dropped it how many times and its still workn...so 4 those who wana complain think again cos this phone is worth spending your money on....
It is a very good phone,never had any problems with it.Also been dropped many times,but it still works perfectly,very reliable handset.
I'll say the phone is ok. I had mine since may 2008 and the only problem I have is signal, but i believe thats just samsung. My daughter washed my phone twice and my husband is a mechanic and let it fall a couple a times and even drove over it and its still alive. Im starting to have problems with the battery now but i still love it. Music player is great.
