This is a good phone, only problem is it comes loaded with telstra software which can make it slow and laggy.
I have gone through the manual and the phone menus and cannot seem to set up voice dialing. When I select it from the menu, it just dials the number. It does not let me record a name to dial. Can anyone help me out? Thanks.
Has any one had any problems with this phone beacause i have a samsung e720 at the moment and i was thinking about selling it to get this phone but i am unsure. Can any one tell me anything more about this phone? IT's either this one of the d600 or the d800?
Got the phone first faulty cover screen not working unless you put pressure on it phone hangs up when I talking. I am thinking it must have a loose connection. Battery life sucks 1 day max with mp3 and internet usage.
Might swap for Sony w800 or w900i for 3g

Flimsy and creaky plastic back cover.
Brought a Z510 a couple of weeks ago. This is my 3rd Samsung phone, and have used basically every other major brand in the past decade. Up until buying this Z510, I was extremely happy with Samsung build quality on my earlier Samsungs. However has been disappointed with the build quality of this Samsung. The other Samsungs were rock solid, no creaks whatsoever, however the back cover of the Z510 has an annoying creak on pressing the keypad.
The reason is a poor design decision by Samsung to use a flimsy bit of plastic for the back cover. WHY? Was very happy with my previous Samsungs which use the entire battery as the back. At the very least, the cover should be metal (as in the Moto RAZR) to avoid this design flaw. As most of the casing of the Z510 is metal; why not also the back cover?
I still think the software sucks. Why can´t I send a Message with 3 clicks. This is the feature I use most and it takes forever to get a message sent! Menu is bad in general.
The battery life on this phone is not great because its a 3G phone. Samsung say it should last 200 hours but this is if everything is diabled. All 3G phones have bad battery life because the advanced technology draws more power than standard GSM phones. If you dont use 3G services such as internet and video calling you can extend the battery life by 20-30% by disabling the 3G. To do this go to settings>network>network mode and choose GSM900/1800 instead of "automatic".
There is no question about this. Last year I worked for Carphone Warehouse and I know the market very well. Samsung make suberb quality phones and I converted from Nokia when I joined the company. Having used Samsung, I will now never go back to Nokia. I have been using a D500 which is absolutely awesome as a phone. I'm not keen to part with it but it is time to upgrade. I checked out the D600 and it is rubbish. The build quality is so poor and the slide mechanism is awful. It has two saving graces, the expandable memory and the 2MP camera. However, this is not enough to redeem it. It does not have a patch on the D500 and the Z510 is superior too.
The Z510 is a beautifully crafted bit of kit and is the slimmest phone on the market. 3G technology apart, it has slightly less features than the D600 however, the build quality is far superior and this is a major selling point. Personally, I think ŁG is a waste of time. The most important element of a phone is build quality and the Z510 has this in bucket loads. Go with the 510, you will not be disappointed.
I work for a mobile phone company. I tested them both and my choice goes to the z510.
hey i really wanna no if this phone will come in another colour! i cant find anywhere that will tell me so can someone plz help me!!!
hi there, i got the Z510 yesterday and i think it is great, reading your comments i have found that you CAN type you're in "T9eab" mode.
just upgraded to a z510, what an amzing phone! i've been a nokia fan for ever but when i was due for an upgrade i had the tough decision of z510 or waiting for nokia n80 - considering n80 is a brick, i all ready have a fantstic digital cmera and an ipod, it was no contest! it's as thin as a pop tart! (not as tasty - obviously!) your comments spurred me on, thankyou! plus i have elisha cuthbert from '24' as my wallpaper which has to make it 110% best phone ever!!
Wondering if a samsung-savvy person could help me out with a bit of a dilemma...
I'm having trouble deciding between this fone (Z510) and the D600. I'm usually a dead-set nokia supporter, but unfortunately their fones these days just don't compare. I'm obsessed with the flip, but I know the D600 has better features, like the card slot and the 2mp camera. Although... it doesn't have 3G capabilities, or the quick MP3 buttons on the front. Hmm. Another thing is that my dad and one of my best friends have either the D500 or D600, and it's kinda awkward if I steal their fone, ya know? It's not great to have a fone that EVERONE else has.
I want opinions, I'm desperate... which would you choose in my situation?
Hi, I am having the same problem with my clock, let me know how you get on, cheers.
Had my z510for 4 weeks now... i appear to be having problems with it not keeping time.. every 4 days or so its out by 10 minutes... in other words i have to reset the time on it every 5 days ... i've put it into the dealer under warranty to have a look at it for me.. how crap is this...otherwise good phone
