Battery life: 3/4 day in normal use: conversation (45 minutes), Bluetooth and photo, video. low battery life in my opinion.
talk time 2-2,5 hours
the screen is fantastic, thin and weight too. A bit too wide
similar characteristics D600
This phone looks greate! I`m considering to buy it, but I dont like built in themes, I would like to know wether it`s possible to download them or make it on your own as I did it on my SE??
Juz got mine yesterday. TIll now i think its a great buy. First of all the phone is not slow. Thats most important to me. All I can say about this phone is, its built for people the think simple. Just use it dont think so much. The only two things i dislike is the message does not come with virbration and ringtone, and while charging, the LCD is on thru out the charging time. Afterall i rate it 8/10. Good job Samsung team.
I don't know why all of you are expecting so much out of this phone! Every phone has a purpose and targets a specific type/range of people.
This phone is meant for light users who want something thin to slide in their pockets so it does not bludge out..
Not only have Samsung provided that but they added a 2MP camera and a vibrating phone...
If you want something more professional then go for the Nokia N-Series or the Sony Ericsson..
If you go out to buy a smart, you buy one so that you can park it anywhere and get around easily in town, but you cannot buy it expecting it to be a Land rover fully optioned!
All in all I would say this phone is amazing for those who want a light-weight stylish phone to slide in their pockets and use moderately throughout the day…I would also go further by saying that this is an amazing secondary phone. By secondary I mean that today’s world is very demanding and ones needs a powerful/multi-functional phone like the Nokia N-Series. However if you have more than one sim-card or a sim-card in a different country where you do not use your phone heavily and want something stylish then I would definitely recommend this phone. One might argue that the Motorola Razor is better and more stylish, but it’s a flip phone..and for those of you who don’t like flip phones, then this is the phone for you!
hey, does anyone know how good the service/reception for this phone? My last samsung didnt get great service where i live, anyone that can help...would appreciate it
Talking nonsense.........why not buy a quadband phone?.......this phone is only triband!
Even in small cities in the USA; they have the same service provider. The only reason you don't get signal because of no reception in that area!!!
True, it does't matter to anyone who are living in Asia/Europe. A triband or Quadband phone always has 900mhz/1800mhz. So its not a problem unless you are visiting USA.
In USA the frequsncies are 850mhz/1900mhz.
Triband phone has 1900mhz. Its ok if you are staying in a major city. But when you going to other states there is no 1900mhz network and you wont have signal at all unless you are using quadband phone with 850mhz support.
Does that make sense!. I have triband phone and when i go for long drive or visit some places..sometime I dont have network. If I have a quadband phone I will always have fullbar.
first off it doesnt matter how many bands there are unless you travel internationally.
I bought mine and 1 week of use now. Good as a phone and the menu is fast. Bought for its slim + 66 gm light weight. Usually put it on on shirt pocket and it didn't feel a thing. My previous pda phone is O2 mini which is fine except it is heavy and thick. Bulge in the shirt pocket. I am 57 years old and didnt feel inconvenience holding it in the hand and inputting letters. Happy with mine.
For GSM phones in US, it has got everything to do with triband or quadband.
I'm sorry about you, but Im very happy with all my samsung phones. This is a x820 forum, so if you have nothing to discuss about this model..move on!! try some other brands. you had bad luck that doesnt mean everyone will.
I do not live in the USA, I live in ASIA. I was originally from S. Korea. It does not matter what other people excuses about Samsung phones.........my own experiences with Samsung phones is that they sucks! It has absolutely nothing to do with triband or quadband!!!
@ both of you
There is absuolutely nothing worng with Samsung phones.
Pay attention. The models you used before SonyEricsson T630 (US version T637) and RAZR both supports 850mhz and 1900mhz.So you had stronger singnals.
x820 is a triband phone, it doesnt support 850 network. In the US there are many places where only 850 works.
Same goes with E770 & P300. Both are triband with 1900mhz for US only.
So either get a Quadband phone or move to city. It has nothing to do with samsung models. peace.
I encounter the same problem quite a few times with my Samsung E770 & P300 before when I own those Samsung phone models.......which is one reason why I sold them & sware I shall never buy another Samsung phone anymore!!!
I had encounter another more worst problem with Samsung phone.......there is full signal showing on the screen, but in reality, there is no reception at all!!! I did missed a lot of important long distance business calls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!xyz@#! to Samsung phones........they are all rubbish, period.
I bought this phone yesterday. Something must be wrong. There's absolutely "no service" or so called "limited service" ("emergency calls only", if you try to dial any number) just at the same spot where my two other phones SonyEricsson T630 and RAZR have full signal. I checked the network selection setting. It's on "automatic".
Any ideas why? The explanation that I'm stupid and don't know how to use phones is not accepted: I've had many phones before this one, and know a thing or two about how they work...
Even in the US, which in terms of mobile communication is still in the Stone Age, even compared to some developing countries...
When a phone is this thin but wide, it's not comfortable to hold for conversation. I'll give this phone a max. 6/10 vote.........not attactive at all!!!
I believe, Its wide... most probably coz its thin...otherwise you will have hard time typing. Cheers!!
just saw this phone and all i can say is this is not for those with small hands coz it's so wide. i thought motorola's L6/L7 was wide, this one tops them all.
Its amazing. Simply awsome. The moment you hold it in your hand you begin to feel the attraction. Sheer enjoyment. While holding this 6.9mm gadget is like holding futuristic gadget in your hand. It is exactly looks like gadgets shown in sci-fi movies.
Bye bye to heavy, bulky phones cause this phone is mere 66g in weight. Features are amazing. 2.0MP camera, 64 polyphonic tones, music player, all are good.
No more words in its honour. Strongly, very strongly recommended for Nokia users.
I brought it because it was thin. The look never impress me! The phone a bit too long & wide. The ring tone volume too quiet. There is only vib. then ring and not vib. & ring.
With some service providers, Samsung phones cannot cannot show the icon when you have your line diverted!!!
Samsung are not making good / innovative phones like they used to!!!
Just got the x820 I have e900 and d820 This is what I preffer to use on a daily basis and battery life is resonable nothing compared to other samsungs but with a good first charge I am getting 2 to 2and1/2 hrs usually every day and when i am on my wep 200 bluetooth headset then this phone is good 4 two days . Best Yet Needed a Flash 4 2mp
