just got this phone and would like to express my opinion on it.
firstly, i know ALOT of people want to know this, you CAN change SMS ringtone to mp3. i wouldn't have got this phone if you couldn't. you goto the edit profiles bit - then you can edit your ringtone/sms melodys. you can have the phone ring+vibrate at the same time (this might be standard now, but my previous phone is like 3 years old and it couldn't do this ;p).
as people have stated, the ring volume isn't the best - but its not THAT bad. only solution i can think of is to edit your mp3's in a sound program to make them louder (i use adobe audition) hopefully someone finds a code to fix this problem.
theres no self camera, closest you can get to this is the videocall button(took me ages to find it, top left of the keypad) which uses the secondary camera(VGA) and you can see yourself, but you can't take pictures =_=
you can store 500 sms on the phone
also the camera has no zoom? or am i missing something
samsung samsung what is rong with u guy's,u cant chainge the message tone to your mp3,it's the d900 all over agen.
In regards to the call quality / loudness. It's not as bad as some people think. the speaker is very close to the top of the phone so hold it a bit lower and you should be fine.
I just got the phone, and it's beautiful! But yes, the call volume is pretty poor =( only if ur in a quiet room is it legible. it's strange b/c my ring tone volume is really loud, and the music can be really loud too. so the hardware is there, but yeah, i guess we just gotta get some code to switch it on somehow. for now i'm just gonna change it to loud speaker to hear ppl in a noisy area.
just so ppl know, i got the soul gray colour, i think they only sell soul gray atm. and in real life, the colour is a much darker grey than in that pic. just look at any you tube video review and you'll see the actual colour of the phone. to be honest i actually really like the 'real' colour, rather than the one in the pic on this site.
i have just got this phone, and i think its really good, i see what ever means about the call volume. does anyone know how you change your message tone to a song?
To The Mobile Guru,
Thanks for your reply. I think I'm going to get this one in silver.
I have this phone and the call quality is just fine, Clear as a bell to be honest. I would even say it's clearer than my old phone the Samsung G800.
This is a hell of a phone and I would recommend it to anyone any time.
The headphones that come with this phone are terrible. This is an expensive phone so why do they put the nastiest, cheapest sounding quality headphones with it?
Also, they cannot disconnect from the main headphone lead! I bought a seperate Samsung headphone lead and plugged in better quality headphones. Needless to say the quality of the music is much better!
I really wanted to get this phone but after reading a lot of people saying that the sound during a call is very bad I have been put off.
If Samsung could get their act together and sort this problem out this phone would be great. Until then I won't be buying one as it's pretty important to be able to actually hear a person during a call. If not the phone is useless.
Could anyone else who has this phone post and let me know more about what the volume is like when it rings and during a call.
To Tyna B
No it's Battery life isn't as good as the G600, In-fact it's no ware near. I've had mine 4 days now and had to charge it twice. But as I'm sure you know a true Battery life will only be achieved one the Battery has been charged fully a few times. But in comparison to when i had the G600 I would say it life isn't as good.
Hope this hels
Ringtone level of this phone is bad, is there a code to change level like other samsungs??
If yes. please email me the code.
thanks in advance... :)
ringtone volume is ok,it shouldn't play too loud cos u can get hard attack sometimes,all asian phones are made like that but it's ok also like my panasonic 905i,soul's very nice and fashionable phone i would buy it
the beast lo0king samsung
its also at a go0d price at £300 at vodafone i would think at least £400
i called samsung who were TOTALLY unhelpful with the problem of caller and ring volume. "that's how the phone's set" they quoted. my views will be sent to the technicians but they also require this feedback from other users. so anyone wishing to report this problem so we can hopefully get a solution you can call samsung on 0845 7267864 (from the uk) come on somebody find a solution. I've tried to find even a code that other people mention about other samsungs but honestly i don't know where to look properly. good luck
