i got mine a week or so ago and i'm very impressed, everyone who see's it is well impressed, one thing i'm confused about, is that i could only get it in silver! - never seen it anywhere in silver on the net etc.
anyone else got a silver x820?
I have a question regarding the batery life time.....
The phone can be used for thw days without chargeing the battery ? I mean, 48 houres and speak about 20-30 minutes ?
I'm having trouble sending files to my PC via Bluetooth. When I send a photo, for example, which is 300kb, my PC will show its thumbnail but the file will usually only be about 18kb, so therefor it's just a thumb!!All my other phones work perfectly, but it seems this X820 is just sending thumbnails! It goes for videos too, and the built-in MP3 tracks. Can anyone shed some light on this?? Click the link to email me...
Hi Guys, Im using this phone for a month now. Amazing Phone, Im loving It
This is one of the greatest phones samsung has come up with. Keep up the good work
well its just been about a day i bought this phone.. this phone is really amazing specially d camera, its better then other phones which hav d 2mega pixel camera... d only problem wit this phone is tat d batter back upp.... its worth buying this phone people. go ahead....
YES, just the icons in main menu are flashing slowly... everything else is fine :)
whats: your software number people?
you can check by tiping:
slowly, really?? i do not own one but a friend of mine. my first impression was the same but i have to correct myself: the bad animated icons are teh reason that made me just feel it is slowly. in my opinion its really fast.
by the way, unbelievable sound from the external speaker for such a thin device!!
is it worth buying? its 13,000 here in the philippines. cheap for a thin double megapixel phone :)
hi there :) I bought this today :) looks nice, but the main menu is working very slowly...
I am wondering is there a way to delete the Recient Receptions list? I'm talking about sending sms. and is it possible to hide time and date?
How do I ATTACH a new phone number from the Recently Dialed/Received Number list to the Phonebook? Thanks!
This phone is so thin sometimes I don't even notice it existing in my pocket! Now that sounds cool doesn't it, however, the chances of it slipping out of your pocket are much greater as well, it's fallen out of mine once on to the floor, still workin fine, no problems, no scratches. Thia happened within the first week of me purchasing the phone, so ya! Compared to my previous phone; Motorola V620, this phone is a 100 times faster. I've compared it with my friends' Nokia and Sony Ericsson phones and even other Samsung phones and well, I gotta be honest, nothing came close to being this quick in messaging (sms). The screen is very clear & crisp. User friendly interface and speedy response in terms of terminating calls, opening menus, typing messages etc. In addition to that, it's got a very very smooth keypad.
Now that's the good stuff, let me list the down sides of this phone as well. To start with, if your even thinking about buying this phone but not thinking of getting an extra battery, forget about it. You NEED an extra battery so keep those extra bucks for it. T9 has to be switched on every single time you select 'create message', this can get annoying but I guess you just need to get used to it, but still 'annoying', if you reply to a message you received T9 will be switched on, weird isn't it. There is no memory slot so you gotta live with the memory built into the phone which is not horrific but it's not amazing either, basically, if your looking for one to store 100's of mp3 songs, this phone isn't for you. Unlike other phones, the Samsung X820 has no selection of profiles, there is just one basic 'sound settings' option where you select your ringtone etc. but, it gets worse. For incoming calls you either got only melody, only vibrate or vibrate then melody, there is no option of vibrate AND melody, again, very very annoying. For messaging, you got either vibrate or melody, not both.
The camera quality is good but I would say...."I've seen better".
This phone is amazing and I love it but if your not willing to get used to the few flaws I've mentioned about, don't bother thinking about this phone. If your an extensive user of the cell phone, forget the Samsung X820. I, personally would not give this phone up and the reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because of the lack of sound profiles, the rest of it, I can get used to.
hmm.. this phone certainly looks quite nice.. i got a question.. i am planning to get a new phone u see, and am considering between x820 and x840.. what do u all suggest? thanks for helping in advance =D
I have been using the X820 for almost two weeks now. Although I was initially hesitant to get it, due to some negative feedback I saw in these reviews, I must say that the X820 is an excellent choice for those who call, SMS, use it for appointments, pictures and games. Even the occasional music playing.
The ringing and speaker volumes may be a little soft in a crowded area, but are fine indoors.
The camera is more than adeqaute, and certainly better than my D820. The screen, though smaller than what I was used to, is surprisingly sharp. Playing games on the X820, I hardly felt I was being stinted on screen size. And graphics were excellent.
I like how the last functions I accessed within a menu were 'remembered'. And overall, the UI is extremely user-friendly. So are the options for Input Method.
While space is a little wanting, I find it adequate since I use my iPod for music.
Yes, the phone does heat up relatively easily, and I'm actually glad there IS a little raised section on the back; so when I place it on the table, it allows for elevation and ventilation. Great serendipitous design element there!
Battery life has been fine, after the first few charges. I can now make a few calls, SMS, use the organiser, play some games and take a few camera shots during the day and the battery will only drop to two of three bars. I charge my phone each night anyway, so I have no complaints.
My only grouses are that I STILL can't choose MP3s for my alarm and Message tones. And a Notepad function would be great, too.
The design of this phone is simply summed up as beautifully sleek. I love this phone! Well done Samsung!
I am very impressed with this phone. I think the ringtone volume is loud enough compared to the Samsung E600 which I could never hear when it rang at any time except if the phone was in front of me. With the Samsung X820, I find that the MP3 Ringtones are of fair volume. I also think that this phone has excellent features and the picture quality is excellent. I can't comment on the battery life as yet as I have only had this phone for two days, but I don't think it will hold as long a charge as my old phone.
Hi! About some popular Samsung mobile phones:
X820 : It gets easily warm while you are talking with, the lens(2Mp) and the sensor(CMOS) is the same as D600 but picture quality is not as good as D600. Besides battery performance is very poor. The TFT screen is very good but D820/D830/D600/E900’s are better.
D820/D830 : High quality constructions and the screens are amazing. But battery performans are poor (especially D820). Picture quality is not so good (indoors photos are very bad, because of lack of flash)
E900 : Touchsensitive control pad is very nice(especially in the dark) Poor battery performans, picture quality is not as good as D600. D820 has better slider mechanism than E900.
D600 : Very good screen/battery performance/picture quality. But the lens get easily dirty and be damaged because it has no lens cover.
