Probably the best phone I have had. Up until now I used stuck to Nokia Series 60 phones and only got the Samsung because it was a cheap 3G phone. However I have to say the screen is superb, the performance likewise !!! Only criticisms are that there is no card slot (although 44Mb internal memory is pretty generous - just a bit small given that the Z140 is a pretty passable MP3 player). Also I agree with those that criticise the battery life - it is a little on the short side :-) Overall though, an excellent phone - I would definitely recommend it !!!!
from Michael: unless you use 3G on your handset, turning it off will improve your battery life upto 69%. find it in connectivity settings under network settings and then network mode, finally select GSM900/1800. 3G should now be off thus improving your battery life, just turn it back on when you need it.
2Nick: to switch the 3G off: Settings --> Connectivity --> Network --> Network mode --> then choose your network mode, here in Portugal is GMS 900/1800, I don't know yours. You have to change the Automatic mode to the normal one.
2Xtof: I think the phone is great, I never had problems and this is my second month! You are a bit right about the battery and it’s a shame that I need to switch off the 3G features to save battery life... but all 3G phones waste a lot of battery in the 3G mode, especially if the 3G network isn't developed in your country as it isn't in mine, that is why the phone wastes lots of battery coz its constantly looking for the 3G network mode, which is still very poor in Portugal! I never had the problems you announce! Also, the price is fantastic! The phone is great! Buy it!
This is 2-3 month I have this phone...full of bugs ! The alarms don't even ring anymore ! And sometimes you are setting an alarm and suddenly an alarm you set days ago starts ringing ! Battery life is poor compared to what is announced by Samsung. You might switch off the 3G features if you want to save battery life...so why to promote 3G network if you can't use it ??!! Also big pb when you have the 3G on...the phone has dificulties to switch between GPRS and UMTS networks...and it crashes so hard that you must reboot few times a day. Don't buy this phone, it is really bad. Lot of - compared to the +. I really don't understand the voting results...
2georgiana: this phone doesn't take photos with the lid closed, and that's very good, coz other phones that do that can fill up the memory with unwanted photos that are taken by only touching the side botton with no will! I have a friend that has another samsung phone and she hates the fact that the phone takes photos with the lid closed coz she has the memory filled with black photos taken to her jeans pocket!
P.S. My battery lastes way more now! I switched the G3 off! I'll only switch it on when I need it!
I got this phone for xmas. it's great to use and so easy. It should really have 2 cameras because flipping the 1 camera around all the time and then using the side button to flip it is just too fiddly for me. the design is so ugly but ohwell. the features are good. Unfortunatley the small clock on the sub lcd doesnt stay on all the time like the Samsung zm60 or the Samsung E720. Wish it didnt have the ariel bit.
I have a problem with this phone. I can't anymore take photos with the phone close. The side button won't work anymore for taking photos. It works with the phone opened. Can anyone help to tell me what to do... pls...and what program do I need to see the videos from the phone on my computer... For now the phone amaze me every day with new staffs
