HP, 26 Aug 2008I've had this phone for a couple of months now. In summary.
Fast menu syste... moreI am buying this phone most probably tom...and i simply thnk its amazin...i thnk luks of U900 matter more than the features u ppl talk abt....coz basically its expensive coz it luks amazin n is stylish too...people who are not interested in the out-look should probably buy some otha phone!
but out-luk is the one most imp thng to me! and U900 i thnk is the best for me!!
lpg, 29 Aug 2008Hello everybody! First of all, sorry for my poor english, but i'm a new owner of the u900 and... moreMan its same here,really! That what u talk about my soul is same! Everyone is like that about sound,so dont wory its not just your phone,and its not big deal i think,first u hear it love and than louder after 1sec and u cant change it! And about batery its same,if u use to much music,cam,video,internet...phone turns off after 1 day,but if u dont use to much well...he can 3 days! I hope u understand me and that i help u! Bye.
First of all, sorry for my poor english, but i'm a new owner of the u900 and i need some help.
The point is with sound, when i have an incoming call the melody starts very low for a few seconds and then suddenly changes to the highest level. It is an abrupt change not a gradation, so i think it is not, at least, very common.I tried by changing the profiles and i've even talked with the technical support of samsung but they are not able to tell me if the phone works properly. I'm in time in my guarranty to change it so if i have no reply maybe i'll do it.
another point to ask you is the battery: it only lasts 2 or 3 days max. It is normal?
eb, 28 Aug 2008I Totaly disagree with you! How can u? This phone is awesome! Camera is great,music player is ... moreWell, Moe's U900 unit was definitely a faulty one, so his impression of the Soul can't be a good one. When you have that kind of experience, suddenly you don't care anymore about the strengths of your phone. Really. What is meant to be a strong point of this phone is really strong (camera, music, customized themes, design etc.), as GSMArena mentioned in their review.
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2008how do i set the clock so it's looks the same as the one in the pictureIwould like to know how to change the style of clock too. Can't sem to get into that option. Does anyone know?

Camera is great,music player is great to! And i dont have any of problems u talk about...are u sure u haved u900 in your hand!? And...motorola sucks!!! Samsung rulez!
Moe, 28 Aug 2008I owned the Soul for two weeks, and guess what? It spent one in the workshop. At this point, I... moreLOL.. i was begining to think u knew what you were talking about until u got to the swapping for the RAZR2 part.lolllll
This phone is so heavy! I have just upgraded from a Samsung D900i and can really notice the extra weight.
I owned the Soul for two weeks, and guess what? It spent one in the workshop. At this point, I've owned pretty much every brand of phone, and I've never had one fail on me in the first week. As I mentioned earlier, the phone worked fine until slid open, then I lost the screen altogether.
So how was it other than the lack of reliability. First, the sound quality from the speaker was appalling. I could barely hear people when they talked, and mp3 ringtones that were made from 320kbps, sounded like AM radio quality stuff. I expected to be blown away by the sound quality seeing as B&O was involved...but sadly, it was the worst I'd ever experienced. I don't even care that much about sound quality, and I was complaining.
How about the interface? Generally, it was pretty good. Thank God Samsung smartened up, and used the center key for the menu instead of the internet. But can someone at Samsung please tell me why the bluetooth is under "applications" as opposed to the "connectivity" menu.
I won't comment on camera quality, since the truth is, I don't care. If you want a good camera buy one. A phone camera is really only for spontaneous events (I know there are some great camera phones out there, but that's my two cents on the matter).
Then there's the much hyped "Magic Touch." Pure novelty. There isn't much functionality behind it, and I much prefer regular buttons as they provide better tactile feedback. The haptics just don't do it for me. Also, the touchpad is horribly cramped...and I have small fingers.
I'm not saying the U900 is a bad phone, it's really not. I just don't think it's a very good one either. Perhaps my view is tainted by the unreliability of my particular unit, it just might be. But I think this phone lacks a particular sparkle. It's pretty thin, but lacks any originality in design, it's basically your typical slider. The only highlight is the "Magic Touch," which itself is contrived. The construction is middle-of-the-road. There are much better built phones out there, with more interesting design, and better detailing. Stepping from the 8600 Luna to this, was a HUGE disappointment. So what did I replace my two week old Soul with? Would ya believe it? A Motorola RAZR2...and I love it.
I'm going to receive U900 in a month and as i've heard his performance and features are simply fantastic.
When I am typing an sms the dictionary changes from my language (Norwegian) to some other random language. When i then chances it back to Norwegian it works perfectly. But when I later on are typing a new sms the dictionary is back to some rear language. Do someone know how to change the dictionary language constantly?
Does Anyone know if this phone will work properly in Japan, I have AT&T and I'm visiting some friends and wanted to know if I should/can bring/use it over there? Thanks
pls how can i Delete the message reciepients list?
i want to ask when see mp4 in this phone is it LAG? because i have this LAG experience when i used samsung z560, in nokia n73, n95 it runs smooth but is it lag in this phone?

I ve been using my soul for more than a week, i love it especially the camera very fast and clear but very disaponted with the sound thought it was recorded not an mp3 song.

I've had this phone for a couple of months now. In summary.
Fast menu system
Very good camera.
Good build quality.
Scratches ridiculously easily.
Battery level indicator misleading. Once off the 1st bar the next 2 bar disappear very very quickly!!
Very poor in call volume, struggle to hear the person on the other end, especially in area with background noise, such as a busy street.
Call using bluetooth headsets are unclear and occasionally break up.
Unfortunately the bad points are all important aspects of a phone to me, especially bluetooth clarity. So overall i dont think this phone is really that good for my needs. Looking for a temporary replacement, until my 18 month contract is up for renewal.
