Could someone who already has the phone plz tell me... is the actual colour of the phone a darker grey? rather than the light grey/silver depicted in this pic?
Because when I see videos on you tube, there's only 1 colours, all silver/goldish or a darkgrey/black.
Nice looking phone :)
I like this site, but if they included SAR information then that would be perfect.

Samsung Phones auto lock after sevral seconds. or to open and close like you said....
Hope this helps
Superb phone, just looks brilliant! Menu system is sick, icons look great, slide works with ease, touch pad is percise, volume (not had any problems with it yet, if anything ive had to turn it down)
One question if anyone can help, how do you key lock the phone, the only way i can see to do it is, slide the phone open then close it, i would really like to be able to do it from a close posistion??!! AMAZING PHONE THOUGh!
Ok spoke to Samsung direct about this, apparently you can't change the functionality of the two soft keys. Rather disappointing as i now have a soft key whos functionality i will never use (O2 active). I was able to change this on my Nokia N70 which is over 2 years old, and in effect have another user desired shortcut, as appose to a network specific or manufacturer specific short cut.
Cheers Samsung and O2 for deciding what i want to do, i don't like to make my own mind up, I say with a hint of sarcasm.
Other than this phone is good.
Ok only had the phone a couple of hours looks smart as, liking the style and the menus are not that far from nokias so easy enough to get around. I am struggling to find to solution to one thing, and not sure if it is poss.
When the phone is in idle / desktop whatever lol, the options I have for the two function keys are: Contacts (left funtion key) and O2 active (right function key). I would like to change these to my own preference, but can only find option to change the 4 touch pad short cuts. Can this be done, if so can someone tell me how. Apologies in advance if its simple and i'm being a dumb ass.
Had this phone few days now, Great looking good menu and navigation, but one major problem is speaker volume even when set at maximum have difficulty in hearing caller and no chance of hearing ring tone, going back to my G600 shame cause lovely looking phone
To the guy posting as DAMNN SAMSUNG:
My Car at 275 Km/hr is making an irritating noise and it drives me mad. I took it to the garage and the mechanic advice me to drive it below 270km/hr which I considered a good advice.
The guy below (DAMN SAMSUNG) is complaining that if he talks 15 minutes it shuts off. Good may be you should check whether there is a Samsung automatic feature for those that talk a lot on the phone (and hate Samsung) to tell them to shut up!! Or perhaps you should try yto talk 14 minutes or less next time!!
My U900 Soul is just perfect. And, I love the new wconcept of buttons which by the way that I can adjust sensitivity. Samsung done it again!! GOOD WORK....KEEP IT UP.
Fantastic phone and i love it. small issue about the touch screen when on a call as my cheek activates it. But hey that can be worked round. Does anyone else find that the earpiece volume is low? I got it on full blast but still really struggle to hear the person talking to me. also when on video call really can't them at all. Else I adore this phone.
This is a Nice Phone, Samsung just Make great phones (Thank God theres 1 company that does)
Pretty phone but real quality issue.
battery became hot and turned off suddenly.
returned it and got a KF700 which is much better.
I get mine tomorrow free on contract and cant wait. Had the Samsung F490 for a weekm and its pants, Changed it for this one ))) Will let u all know what its like. )))))
Can anyone tell me if this phone is compatable with a bluetooth car phone accessory where i connect it via bluetooth and just press the button within the nokia inteface to answer. I have one built into my car which is nokia and currently use my sony via the bluetooth with no issues but read somewhere that this didnt work with the U900
What do people mean by not being able to customize the sms tone on the u600, I have got this phone and have always been always to do this
I returned this phone again today because it turns off after being on the phone for 15 minutes. i hate samsung and will never buy another one. the first problem was with touch keys which was so unpredictable.
will never buy this phone no matter how pretty it looks.
Right got this phone last Thursday.
Straight off the mark, this is a really smart looking phone and has already turned heads when in use. It's currently got that WOW factor.
I am so far quite impressed with the phone, although not quite used to the slider part as my previous phones have mostly all been conventional style handsets. Anyhow, I think its always better to list the bad points because good critism provides more viable information before purchase, and anyway all the good points are already stated on the website.
So here goes:
- Cannot see the screen in direct sunlight. Completely fades out, however can be seen in normal daylight and great at night.
- The touch sensitive keys on the small window are fiddly. I guess people with long fingernails or chubby fingers may have issues with this. Also not always responsive, have to press the key on the screen multiple times before the particular action is recognised.
- Although it states that the audio output is based on B&O technology, it still sounds like any other MP3 phone, and there is no real noticable difference in audio output. Has similar sound and clarity like any other good MP3 phone.
- Volume keys for keypad tones are located in awkward position. Various times, being accidentaly pressed
- Snapshot button for when camera is active is also located in an awkward position. OK for landscape but fiddly for portrait.
- Shots in complete darkness are quite impressive, but objects snapped too close become very bright. Could probably fix this in cam settings, but remember this is not dedicated camphone like SE-K850i or the like.
- Battery life was 1-2 days with normal usage including HQ pics.
- Its a 5MP cam, but when downloaded pics to laptop, they looked similar to my 3MP cam phone when compared (but then again my 3MP cam was a SE-K800i).
My last impression:
7/10, very cool looking phone with ample features, but for features above misses out on a higher rating. But still defo good though..
Also, if you can, wait for the limited edition stainless steel version as opposed to the current graphite one. Its got that extra shine appeal for all you posers out there!
Hope the above info helps in any way.
