 cracking phone for people with thin fingers

| | See all justabloke's reviews (1)

this is an absolute gem of a phone. had it now for 2 weeks and i have only two issues with it. i have large fingers and it can be a little tricky using the numbers as they are surrounded by the phone walls, but its easy after you get used to it. and the touch sensitive buttons on the screen face can be a little... well...sensitive if you are scrolling with the main button. you can accidentally touch the quit button, but samsung have thought about it and have added an extra pop up to confirm if you wanted to quit the application you were trying to use.
the only other thing that could be an issue with some people is the battery life. it doesnt really want to last over 4 days. i dont have an issue with it as its charged every night anyway, but if you go somewhere for a weekend and forget your charger, be a little light fingered.
these are the only issues i have with it. the pros, most definitly outstrip the cons.
i have recently purchased a 2gb card from play.com and and found a way of converting dvds to play on it and the quality is fantastic. the capture quality is outstanding also and the photos too. it does struggle in low light but most cameras do.
the mp3 quality is as good if not better than my nano ipod, and it has the unsual feature that you can actually phone people too... even if it sounds like they are in the next room.
all in all for the price, i thoroghly recomend this phone to anyone who wants a good bit of kit for under 100 pounds (orange online)
go get one!

 Beware of battery life!

Brilliant looking and functioning phone...except not good for heavy users. You'll be lucky if it lasts 3 days on stand by and less if you actually use it or accept in-coming calls or texts. Ideal for very low user. Needs charging every night and you cannot turn the screen off when you charge it, unlike many other Samsungs...this is a big design fault. Complained to samsung about battery life and they sent replacement battery. worth having a replacement but it still cannot hold a charge. Also it will show 3 bars of battery life and then all of a sudden it goes dead...doesn't lose power in increments. I've had 6 samsung phones including my current D900 and they all have much better battery life. EDIT Key pad just packed in and has gone back to Samsung for under guarantee repair and to resolve battery drain which continues to dog performance even with second battery from Samsung!
