Battery life is a joke! 36 hours for 3 min talk time, 4 photos and some fiddling with settings! I don't understand the 2-3 days some others have achieved. I'll keep a Nokia in the car for back-up.
Hi to all.... Very Poor Battery charge is the main problem of X820 right? is it possible to buy a new battery with higher charging ability just to improve its fast discharged problem... pls. help answer anyone..thanks,
isnt it true dat samsung c100 highest sound volume is just the same as samsung x820 highest sound volume?
IM looking to get this phone but can anybody tell me how to set it up for cingular i was to set it up so i can send text messages and multimedia messages please help me
well it has its own unique sexy look
but the battery hardly last for 24 hrs
and that will make you suffer if one day you have a lot of calls to be made it wont last for more than 1 hr talking if its fully charged, but at the end its the cost for you to be unique! and i paid it lol
The calender function SUCKS. The manual tells you that it is possible to program a reminder (with an alarm); however, the phone does not even provide that option. Plus try setting any reminder--it does not work.
Extremely POOOOR Battery life
I just got one of these, and think it's great. I (as many of us?) have an iPod, so who cares about memory card slots? Equally, no flash light - but I have a camera for taking pictures with! Even phones with a flash light will never take pictures as good as a proper sized lens.
No profiles? Who cares? How many of us really need anything other than 'ring' and 'don't ring'? Well, I guess ring/vibrate/silent would have been nice. Perhaps there will be a firmware update. Oh, MP3s can be set as ringtones.
The screen is large and clear, buttons (except i button but it still works OK) are easy to use unlike my old RAZR. SMS texting is easy unlike RAZR. Although it takes too many clicks to put a phone book contact as an SMS recipient. Menus are clear and simple and easily navigated.
Battery life so far only one and a half days (first charge req'd), but I have been playing a lot including bluetooth. Also new battery will not yet be optimised, they usually get better until about charge 10. So if it lasts 2 days or max 3, that will be about the same as my old RAZR, so totally acceptable.
Reception seems fine after this short trial. (Vodafone UK)
- only two phonebook entries displayed at a time, can't seem to change contact display style. Then again, good search function (unlike motorola even with upgraded firmware).
- no ring/vibrate together (but this is really not the end of the world)
- poor battery life
Above all, this phone really is incredibly thin.
I think it is a nice phone, only a tad above what the likes of us can afford. But I commend Samsung for it anyway.
I just bought this phone. Only problems I've noticed so far are: 1) Keypad tone error; more than one tones available but only the default beep can be heard when other tones are selected. 2) When sending Text, # selection shows phone# instead of Name.(My SGH-D500 Shows the person's Name)
I have 2 questions about this phone:
1. I bought a T-Mobile T519 from USA and I was wondering if the phone will work in Europe on orange or Vodafone network?! or it's only working on T-Mobile network?! I don't have the phone yet ... they have to ship it to me in few days
2. I read some posts here they said that u can't set ur mp3's as a ringtone? it's that true? because if it is that sux ...
i purchaced the mobile a few days back... great phone in all respects expept the battery life is incredibly poor...lasts for about 24 hrs ... any others having the same problem??
