I think this review is very superficial, from the gadget-freak-trendy-journalist-chick point of view.I'm a graphic designer, not doing much outdoors... But in the last less than two years I "used up"an iPhone, a Samsung U900, and a SE 980i... all very sleek and stylish. They unbelievable thin,so put them in your Jeans back pocket and sit down... or does anyone ever used the secondary camerafor video calls? Does people really do email and web browsing on those tiny dark screens?Maybe I'm strange, but what I expect from a phone is (these days surprisingly calls and texts,reliability longer than a year life time, possible least amount of cameras, mp3playback the bluetooth transfer is great,the player should be a little more polished. I do my web browsing and computing jobs preferablyon my 24" screen or if all else fails I use my netbook on the go...
"from the gadget-freak-trendy-journalist-chick point of view."Really?
Yup, I'm with Robi on this one. After all, the wifi signal down at the beach or building site or wherever is likely to be patchy at best - what matters is, will it still work after bouncing off the floor, being dropped in the sand or the briny. Does it sink or float, can I use it with gloves on. The phone should be tested and reviewed with reference to its intended purpose and environment, and I didn't get the feeling that happened in this review.
Agreed, this phone is brilliant at what it does, surviving being dropped and getting wet.I have had one for a few months now and so far it has done what I needed it to when I needed it to, including phoning the emergency services after a serious crash and being able to take good enough photos at the scene to prove who was to blame (Not me by the way)The music player on this phone is a nice added bonus, and the internal speaker is remarkably clear for the size of the phone.Looking at your overall score for this phone i cant inderstand why its so low as the samsung is perfect for the market it has been aimed at.the only thing I would fault the handset for is for not having the flash light on the back of the phone rather than the top.this way it could have been used to assist the camera as well as a flash light.Brilliant phone, wouldnt part with it for the world 9/10.
Everyone giving bad reviews, why, don't need the web don't need the texting, just set it to fade after 10 seconds then sleep after 3 minutes, lasts a bout a week for me, 90 percent of the phones you want to have a flashlight feature is gonna cost big money, this is all you need to make phonecalls and use the flashlight in emergencies
