OK! I'm back, been using this for a month and traded in from HTC touch...
Pros : very light indeed but strong body (never had problem in my jeans pocket!), loud enough with virbration, very stylish, slim enough, functions good enough for me (depends on you, camera's good too
Cons: Unlike smart phones (remember I had HTC Touch) I cant placed permantly or stay my appoinment on the screen, perssing menu to menu kinda slow,not for music lover coz the sounds too 'slim',
Ask me for any enquiry

Also, they have mentioned some 5-6 colors but in india only Soul Gray color is available..Overall, the phone is really good.. slim, user friendly.. Camera is powerful and video quality is also good, speaker volume is low compared to my older Motorola e398.. hence overall I give 8/10..
"Inferiority Complex" nicely blended with "Attention Deficit Disorder" gives birth to the flesh-and-money flashing must-look-at-me attitude. Priced at INR 9,500/_ this phone serves them for whom a cell phone is meant to be shown off rather than used as a communication device.
It did have the potential to be a spectacular telecomm piece. But some weirdo at the Samsung management literally ruined the Indian version -- the U800E. Cost-cutting at the expense of the Indian buyers is definitely not a wise thing to do. Plus, different geography got different mismatches with the published specs. That too is NOWAY fair. As it so happens to be that it seems like Samsung is rushing towards expanding its portfolio while neglecting the very buyers with mismatched specs and horrible pre and post sales support. What I don't understand is how can Samsung even dare bank on neglecting the buyers? After all, there are many alternatives already available in the market! Seems like Samsung is making a deal with the friendly neighborhood car-wash centre years before buying a car. Funny? Fact, actually.
It's a real shame that I bought this phone after knowing the specs at GSMArena. But that definitely is NOT GSMArena's fault. And Samsung India's website itself was throwing the INCORRECT specs at my face. And that IS Samsung India's fault. Co-incidence or deliberate -- must not be tolerated.

Hindustani, 29 Oct 2008I purchased a U800E Soul Gray in India. Last week. Three things differ from the actual specifi... moreHey, after ur 'think before u leap' warning at the beginning, any major warnings now after using it for over a month?
I've had a Samsung D600 for over 3yrs now n it was an absolutely grt buy. My mind was set on the Nokia E51 until I discovered another grt Samsung tat meets my requirements n looks smart.
Do I really have to worry abt the low-tech Indian version of this ph, especially since I don't care abt the 3 negatives you listed abt the Indian version?
And, is the battery life good?

1. the basic that thing depends on your own personalty is the style of phone buy it if you like it, it gives you feeling of something like a cellular phone in true.
2. except smartphones you can compare phones by sound quality(bang oulfsen speaker) 7/10 screen 8.5/10 camera 3mp is among the better ones but its camera is lightening quick. one "needs" a camera phone hardly once a month. great music player with real visualization. software flow 8/10, no hassles in operating the phone customization(themes and like) 9/10 better than nokia and motorola.
buy this for hassle free mobile usage and greats looks internal and external with added quality of good sound and music player.

Anonymous, 14 Nov 2008How noticeable is the lag switching between menus?reply to phone lag
the phone that i use has no lag at all, what i know the lag problem was there in beta version, its better than many high end motorola nokia except sony ericcson on its fluent use
my phone is korean made but i cant find a document viewer/editor in applications, is this the right place to look for document viewer or is there some other problem?
i also did not get any games but live theme is present.
I am thinking of buying this phone, but i guess the one that we have in India is U800 E and not B, and therefore it differs in its features, expect only the looks are same. can somebody help. i mean irrespective of the fact that its different from U800 E, is it still worth buying, when compared with Samsung L700

Preparation : Disconnect PC from LAN and all modems and routers -- IMPORTANT. Make sure the antivirus and antispyware programs are absolutely uptodate and capable of running on-access scans. Disable your firewall and raw socket blocking protocols and applications. Check for auto start-ups. Then fresh install [or repair] Microsoft Outlook [or Mozilla Thunderbird]. Install the drivers and client management softwares of both the phones. Reboot.
Execution : Transfer all the contacts from phone-ONE to the PC by sync and/or Outlook. Make multiple back ups. And then transfer all contacts from PC to phone-TWO. Use strictly wired transfer, i.e, no infra red and definitely no bluetooth.
P.S : Not only the easiest but also the safest process this one is. And don't forget to post a "job nicely done" response after successful accomplishment of this circus.
I bought this phone a few days ago and most functions have worked well except for the problem with transfering my contacts to the phone from my IPAC HP PDA.
I am doing the transfer using Bluetooth. The names of the contacts and notes about them are transferred with no prblem but the phone numbers don't.
Does anyone know how I may go around my problem?
Sumsung in South Africa promised to call me back with an answer and they have not got back to me after days.
