hey guys i'm thinking of buying this phone, but i'd like to know whether the speakerphone n the speaker for music is one?
cos i had a problem using my d500 for talking after listening to loud music
I agree, its expensive, but I got my hands on a demo. paid halfprice.
I must say guys. Its the best phone Ive tried
for a long time. the camera is exellent!
what gsmarena says here in the reviews is right on the money.
wait for a pricedrop if you like, but I say. BUY IT! its much better than an N95!
Anonymous, 30 May 2008I like this phone. . . but very expensive. . . so much for a student . . .bought this phone yesterday.have no problems as mentioned by others
this phone really deserves a higher score than the ones shown.. i think alotta people are giving it bad scores because of mainly 2 probs that are EASILY fixed. 1. back cover- push down and out on the back cover using your PALM as you grip the face of the ph with your fingertips (u should be able to remove the cover just using the one hand SIMPLE). 2. ring volume- go into profiles and then edit then set to max ring volume (if its still low its the mp3 not the phone).
i wish people would just spend 2 minutes tryin to figure out their probs first..as far as caller volume goes it seems to vary a fair bit from caller to caller so this seems to be issues with networks as much as it is the actual phones.
hi im 14 from perth
and my dad bought this for my birthday in singapore
i love it sooo much
i love it :D
This phone could've been better if this is quadband! Because 40% of motorola phones have quadband technology...

Confused123, 31 May 2008How loud are the speakers on this phone?about on par with most hand sets on the market right now. loud enough
How loud are the speakers on this phone?
This phone is awesome!
My sony ericsson started playing up, but I really wanted another one, but decided to go for the Soul having played around with it in a shop.
The menus are similar to Sony's and are quite straightforward to use - which is obviously important when you first get your phone!
The camera is great, the screen gives a really sharp, bright image, it's quite compact compared with the SE K850i, Nokia N95 etc.
I would suggest donwloading another browser such as operamini instead of using the built in one (but i do that on all my phones).
Time will tell how good the battery life / durability is - I've heard that Samsungs are not great in this area.
Another thing I noticed is the level of customisation you can make to the phone; sensitivity of the touchpad, strength of vibrating alerts, number of times you can put your alarm onto snooze, shortcuts you want on the touchpad, as well as hundreds of camera/music/games settings. I probably haven't even realised half things you can do as I've only had the phone a few weeks.
Apparently the screen is a bit diffcult to read in direct sunlight - but living in the UK that has cropped up yet!
i like this phone.. designed well.. but yah the voulme is a bit low.. but i dont care i use headphone
can someone post their light settings? mine keeps auto lighting up every one minute even with the keypad locked. i went to the samsung shop and they upgraded the system but it still happens. they couldn't do anything about the lighting up thing. i went back to where i bought my phone to exchange and the same thing happened to the two new sets they brought out. is it really my phone(batch) or my settings?
mine just passed the 'acciendently thrown across the room at the gym test'..opps. only a small dent. thumps up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Phone is light and very sleek. I love how you can customize the theme and the phone itself has a very good amount of memory. The only bad thing about it is..it doesn't have a sound application and correct me if I'm wrong but it seems to me that the front camera is only used for video calling and nothing else.
Anonymous, 30 May 2008is it worth buying this phone ???no
LCH, 30 May 2008last 6 phones all been samsung and have been samsung fan for several years untill the appallin... moreI wanted the U900 but am thinking of getting the LG Secret instead after a lot of bad comments about the volume of the U900. Can people who have got the secret after trying the Soul tell me what it's like in comparison.
Excellent phone... touch pad is going to take some getting use to but sure it wont take to long
i dont normally think price of phone is a big deal cuz most of them are free with either a 12month contract or 18month contract here in UK.
if you're wanna get them without a contract try ebay. Just saw one "brand new in box" "unwanted upgrade" U900 graphite (with Voda-locked) sold for around £200. If you don't mind getting a mint one i'm sure you can get it around £150 after a few weeks.
Just to put it in perspective CPW are selling PAYG at £300. Good deal if you ask me :)
This phone is cool !! But like some 1 here already told .... its very expensive =\
