Samsung D410 review
| ||Review: August 2004
In a nutshell: The Samsung D410 is the first in a new generation of Samsung phones featuring a slide design.
The slide motion is semi-automatic, which means that a gentle push will make the slide mechanism open and close automatically.
The outstanding feature of the D410 is the size and quality of its display. The slide-up design allows space for one of the largest displays on any current mobile phone, and the Samsung's screen has 262,000 colours, making for a superbly crisp display with vivid colours, easily viewable under different lighting conditions. As a direct comparison, the D410's screen has nearly twice the number of pixels of the Samsung E700 or E800.
The D410 also features a rotating 300,000 pixel VGA camera for taking pictures on the move. The camera incorporates a digital zoom, brightness controls and a multi-shot function (up to 15 pictures). Photos can be saved as wallpaper, or sent to another phone or a computer using MMS or email. The phone also functions as a camcorder, allowing you to shoot video clips. The phone's large 262k colour screen is ideal for viewing recorded images and videos.
Samsung have added a number of nice user-friendly features to the D410 that have been missing from previous Samsungs. These include one-touch operation for key functions such as WAP, camera, texting, etc. Another nice new feature is 64-voice polyphonic ringtones, offering the best sounding ringtones yet.
On the negative side, the D410 still has the external aerial that tarnishes the phone's appearance and is at risk of damage. The phone is also missing Bluetooth and has very limited memory available for storing pictures and Java games. It's also far too bulky to be a practical option for most users. On balance the D410 seems to be a prototype for the fabulous D500 - it has some great features, but as an all-round performer it doesn't stack up.
Samsung D410 features include:
- Large TFD display (176 x 200 pixels, 262,144 Colours)
- Rotating VGA Camera (640 x 480 resolution) with digital zoom, multi-shot, frames, effects and brightness control

- Data transfer: IrDa, PC serial cable transfer
- vCard/vCalendar via IrDA
- Downloadable Java™ games (4 games included)
- Phonebook (maximum 1000 entries)
- Organiser: Clock, worldtime, alarm (auto switch on, when phone is off), scheduler, calendar, "to do" list, currency converter, calculator
- One-touch key operation for camera, WAP, SMS, voice memo, ringtone and silent mode

I have used the Samsung D410 for a while now and i guess its not the
best there is but it does look sleek and stylish.the problem though
is that its aerial makes it seem old fashioned a little out of touch
with the new way of things.Also i have issues with the fibre, it seems
to affect the sound once the mouthpiece if faulty.Some time back it
droped down, took me a good spending to fix the sound and the mouthpiece.otherwise,
its not too bad after all.

that it was a vampire living on my blood and pure frustration.The screen
goes to keylock within 3secs b4 u realise what happened and unlocking
it takes forver.I had to sell it at a give away price(still I thank
God I had managed to get rid of it) and now I have a samsung d500,a

I think this phone is poor. I bought it just when it came out. For so
much, about N54,000. It is just so expensive with little function to
go. Quite Okay the screen is a bright 262 thosand colour and cute, but
that's as far as it goes. It fades in the sun. audio recording (amr
format) is only 5 and not more than 5 secs. The video recording is without
sound and is less than 20 secs. No support for MP3 No integrated habdsfree(loud
speaker). No blue tooth. The infra red doesn't work. I think that I
was cheated by Samsung. I disagree with the last person who said that
the phone was made years better than other phones its time. I think
that is not true. The phone lacks very basic essential and important
functions. It is so bulky yet no good function to show for it. Then
why in heaven did they give it so much weight?Any one that thinks of
buying it, should think again. Samsung D600, SE K750 are better alternative.
You are warned. The one I have is spoilt now. The screen just went blank.
Totally white. Think twice friend.

I think that the phone is quite good because I have one but it really

Reviewed by Will from England on 14th Jan 2006
This phone was so far ahead of its time it is unreal. It still looks
better than nearly every phone around almost 2 years after its release.
I was one of the first people in the UK to own one and bought it 'handset
only' for about £400. A bargain it was too- I never experienced any
problems with the phone. For over a year, everyone who saw it was amazed
at how stunning it looked... and I never once saw another person with
one wherever in the world I went. Maybe now the features cannot compete,
and the external aerial was always a tad poor aesthetically speaking,
however, for pure class, smoothness, sophistication, and to be truly
unique (put simply, a cut above everyone else and their phone) nothing
ever has and probably ever will compete with the Samsung D410. Its extremely
high price tag, styling, futuristic design, and scarcity make it a genuine

The phone that I have is the Samsung d410, this isnít a very new
phone and it has two phones which have been upgraded from it. The reason
I choose this phone was because I liked the look of it and it carried
a camera on the back of it and Iíve always wanted a camera phone.
I use my phone mostly every day in my life to send text message and
call people, and also receive them from people. The phone is a pay monthly
phone so I received the phone for free and I have to pay £15 a month.
The reason I choose this tariff is that I seem to use much more text
messages then I do calling. I choose the tariff that gives me the most
text messages. By paying £15 a month I receive 250 free texts and 100
minutes of free calls. The phone is easy to use and its pocket size
once you slide the two halves together. The good reason why I choose
the phone is because it is meant to have a big, clear, colourful screen.
When I take the picture of anything the camera and video are both very
fast acting and the camera allows me to take 15 different pictures of
the same thing in a split 5 seconds. Another good feature about the
camera on this phone is that the camera is turn able and you are able
to turn the camera round on the top of the phone. This is mostly used
to take a picture of you and other things that you need to take a picture
of. The phone is that the camera has special features such as zoom,
double zoom, night vision, heat seeking vision etcetera. My phone also
features a rotating 300,000 pixel VGA camera for taking pictures on
the move. And the Samsung's screen has 262,000 colours, making for a
superbly crisp display with vivid colours, easily viewable under different
lighting conditions. Photos can be saved as wallpaper, or sent to another
phone or a computer using MMS or email. On the bad side, the D410 still
has the aerial that ruins the phone's appearance and is at risk of damage.
The phone is also missing Bluetooth and has limited memory available
for storing pictures and Java games. The phone satisfies all of my needs
it is an easy hand held. Object it isnít exactly long and jiggered
so it fits in your hand just perfect. And it doesnít feel like
over phones when you hold it against your ear. The other good things
about the phone are that the ring tones are polyphonic which means they
arenít tuned into keypad beeps. You can use the microphone on
the phone to record your own soundtracks and listen to them, as your
ring tone or a messaging warning or as simple as an alarm clock.
Reviewed by Rosa from UK on 11th Oct 2005
This phone is easy to use. It's problem is that it doesn't do very much
at all. The wap is limited as most downloads are not compatable with
this handset. Also the infra red function is pointless, unless you want
to copy your friend's address book (providing they have the same handset
as you!). On the plus side, the camera is very good for a mobile, and
the picture quality is great. It's a shame there is no way to transfer
pictures to your PC. Overall this phone is poor by today's standards,
but I would definatly consider having a newer Samsung moile phone.

I liked the phone when I bought it. It was cool, althought there was
little memory and no bluetooth, I still liked it because it was okay
for my use. After 5 months he Flex Cable got problem and there was no
sound and display. I got it repaired but after 15 days the same thing
happened again. really annoying, the phone should work for atleast 2-3
years properly. The slider is the worst I've used. I would suggest never
to buy this phone.

When i recieved this phone despite its sheer size i absolutely loved
its slick looks and was proud to get it out when i was out clubbing
etc (though this was summer 2004, not 2005). Alongside its neat and
lush appearance the screen is bright and colourful, however, thats about
it. The text messaging is, not just bad, but absolutely plain wrong
- whoever on God's green earth decided that the txting should go back
to capitals everytime you use it deserves to be shot in the chin, my
mates thought i was having a go at them everytime i texted them. The
built in memory for videos is diabolical, as far as i remember i could
store 10 videos... 10!! i could have understood this if the phone featured
a memory-card slot to back it up, but it doesn't. The tipsy (if not
drunk or mental) designers back at Samsung also decided that the video-playback
should feature a lovely border around the screen and i did not understand
why there was an option to make the video screen small or large, it
didn't make a difference to how many videos could be stored. I sent
my phone back within my month's try-out period after realising i could
not bare depending on this for at least a year on contract. Sending
it back made me realise how bad the phone was even more when i could
not save my photos and videos due to there not being any kind of computer
connection. I do realise that i am typing this review nearly a year
after i had it and that technology has progressed a lot since, but there
is no excuse for this atrocity of a phone, i am still happily using
the Nokia 7610 - a superior phone in every right - which came out around
the same time and which i purchased just after the D410. Be warned,
I am rating this 2 stars wholy due to the quality of its slick design
and the clear colourful display which were both good at the time. However
if i were to rate this compared to 2005 standards it would get a 1 single
twinkling star next to its name. Noway will i ever buy another samsung
phone - mostly because i would hate to contribute to the wages of whoever
was incharge of making this phone, they aught to be ashamed.

have much memory for holding videos and they only last for 30 seconds.
Screen and photo qualtiy is excellant. One thing that really hacked

about getting it fixed. I had insurance and stated i wanted my phone
back because i had a lot of photos and video's private numbers that
I wanted to keep etc... as the pics and video's cant be stored on your

I've had my D410 over a year now, and at first I was chuffed with it.
I'm still happy with it in most respects, but I'm so irritated by one
or two points that I'm now looking for a new phone. First, and most
irritatingly, is the texting. The phone always defaults to caps. I change
it to lower case, but then after entering punctuation, it has changed
back to caps again!! Drives me crazy, especially if I haven't looked
at the screen for a while, then have to delete and type again. Also,
entering punctuation and symbols (for emoticons) is too long-winded.
Second, you can only store four videos, and there is no way to get these
off the phone and onto your PC. Photos can be emailed though. Video
volume is extremely poor, as is ringtone volume. Other than those points,
the phone has always worked fine. It makes phone calls, no problem.
Reviewed by AA from UK on 10th Jun 2005
I used to love this phone, it looks good, and had good functionality
(though not everything I wanted). However, the buttons stopped working
after 10 months, I use my phone a lot for texting and general use, but
not excessive, and I look after it, so I expected it to be a bit more
sturdy. Even though I have insurance and am still within warranty, 02
say they won't replace my handset, but I can pay £25 and get another
one. I do not see why I should pay anything as it is not my fault. Anyway,
ultimately, I have to question the longevity of Samsungs after this
experience, but I do think that if handset problems occur, it is up
to the network provider to sort it out. Will steer clear of 02 from
now on, and probably Samsungs, although I do find them easy to use .....
when they work properly!!!

it started going all fuzzy and also when i received a text old texts
came up instead. After a week of that the phone went totally dead and
wouldn't even turn on.....so I sent it to Samsung who repaired it for
free which I thought was really good of them. Has been working really
well up until now....it has started to turn off and also showing old

is running out in June and I was thinking of buying the D500 as it's

I recently saw and read reviews on the E720 and am going to go for that.
Sounds AMAZIN!!!! I wouldn't recommend people to buy the D410 as I reckon
it would probably conk out and I think its just a fault in every D410
as it was the first sliding phone. I will always buy samsungs though....I

the d410 is a good phone with some flaws. on the plus side the screen
is impressive, the clearest i have seen on a mobile phone. it has a
huge memory for photos, i have over 200 hundred and it still has loads
of memory. good design and the semi-auto slider has a lovely action!
java and polyphonics (but most phones do these days) However, on the
down side, Video memory is tiny (about 1 minutes in total!!) it doesn't
save your sent messages so to send to several people involves retyping
the whole thing or saving and sending it, can't send to groups. You
can't have the phone on completely silent without going to phone settings,
whereas most other phones are simpler to set to silent. no bluetooth,
in fact any type of data sharing is impossible, infra red and mms don't
work on my phone. even when someone sends me an mms i get an alert telling
me to look at it online! I have had the same problem as some others,
the screen kept going white and scarmbling, and the speaker stopped
wor king, (ringtomes stopped working and couldn't hear people when they
called me) However, i sent the phone back to samsung and it was repaired
and sent back at no cost, samsung have THE best customer care I know.

With a new screen fitted the problem has gone away. On balance the phone
looks good, feels good and is jam packed with features. Samsung customer
car is very good, I tried to fit a new screen myself (Dumbass) and when
i put the phone back together it was completely dead. Sent it off to
a phone fixing shop who sent it to samsung and within an week it was

you!! pictures are not clear! it takes time to load anything!. the only
good thing i liked about this phone is the ringtones which r by all
means outstanding! i had the phone for 3 months and its already dieing.
If you want a phone to impress buy it, if you want a phone that will

My sister bought me this lovely phone and I found it very interesting
with all its new features including the video which is uniqe when compared
to my previous cellular. However, I was not able to apply the photo's
that I pick from my freinds to be stored and used to pop up when they
call me back. Rest, the unit is full of the new telecom technology.

this phone is absolutely incredible , not as small as the similar slide
phone e800 but the features are much better on it.One the few phones
with a 262000 range of colour display wich really does make a differece
, the quality of the pictures and movies is amazing , not to mention
the 62 polifonic sounds . Opening the phone using a single hand with
the slide function with a gentle push makes you fell the high class
of the phone , is doesnt feel like that cheap plastic on the nokia 6260
phone (big disapointment) , but one thing is for sure , it is not a
phone for any country folk ,it could easily brake when it's opened.
One the most amazing phones on the market , it is really worth buying.

I used to like this phone. I like it so much; I made my brother buy
one. Error, after 6 month my phone died and my brother's phone is on
the way to the phone's paradise too. We still have 6 month before the
end of our contract and now we have to buy some new phone. Samsung builds
some go looking phones with good graphics. But they need to last longer.
In conclusion, that's a good phone. But don't buy it. Trust me on that.

I've had mine for five months and it's died! I've always had Nokias
before, and I shall be returning to Nokia for my next phone. The D410
has a great screen but that's about it. The user wap interface is hopeless
in comparison to other phones I've used. If you are already browsing
you have to pretend you're saving a page your viewing to access your
bookmarks. The provision for Java applications likewise is hopeless.
And what is the point of being able to record video if you cannot send
it to another device such as phone or pc? Samsung have disappointed
me with this phone, the technology is there but they haven't utilised
it as well as I would expect from a manufacturer supposedly at the forefront
of their field.

The D410 is a good buy, considering the camera, graphics, clarity and
video etc.. txt messaging is better with the shortcut button. however,
the disadvantages include its size. which could have bin made smaller
so as to fit in a jeans pocket. It could have been antenna-less. Has
the probabilty to break off and asks for more care in handling. There
is no blue tooth. I dont understand why not. provided every other feature

Basically I like the phone because of its elegant and classy design.
Features are not that attractive. There are several improvements that
should be made like on tones to accept mp3 and WAV extensions. Videos
and camera are good but I guess it also needs some improvement like
memory card. Pictures can be easily transferred to a computer via data
cable. For me the design is very good but the applications and features
must be developed and improved.

Overall an excellent phone but still can have some improvement. Picture
and Video look great even when viewed over the computer. Sound is great.
Menu is easily navigable. IrDA can be improved to send pictures and
video to other phones. Ringtones are strictly MMF, it can be improved
to accept MP3 or WAV. Since the phone takes good pictures and video,
external memory hopefully can be added. Contact list can be improved
to include mailing list on top of mobile, telephone, home, and email

I am sorry to have to write this as up until the 16th September I was
more than happy with the D410. But on the 16th September my phone began
to do some rather strange and bizaar things. You will notice(if your
phone has a fault) that the display becomes distorted, resulting in
blue/black or red/orange lines about the screen. Or the screen could
just be plain white. I have sent the phone back to Samsung as this is
clearly a mnufacturers fault. I do hope that they are able to repair
the fault as i love the phone!

Samsung has once again created a beauty although a lack of some features is there still doesnt make any difference to the class of the phone..

The D410 is almost the perfect phone. It has an absolutely outstanding 250,000 colour display and the phone looks the biz, but it's a shame you can't expand the memory of the phone. With a high-res video the phone really needs more memory, and there's no slot for a memory card and no option to upgrade. The maximum length of a clip is around 20 seconds, although you can store ten or more at a time. I was disappointed by this, but apart from that it's a wicked phone.

I upgraded to this phone after spending a year with my trusty V200. Samsung have done it again! This phone rocks! If you thought that the screen on the V200 was good, you gotta see this one! Being a clamshell fan I wan't sure about the new slide style, but it's pretty cool actually. Cool multi-colour light on the front. My only complaint is that there's no data cable supplied in the box with this phone (the V200 had one). You can buy them on ebay for #3.50 so I don't know why Samsung decided not to include them as standard.

This phone is very good apart from 2 things, firstly the speaker volume is pretty poor meaning you can miss out on calls especially when you cant have vibrate and tones at the same time. Secondly the battery life is terrible the screen uses power so quickly its unbelievable. If you use the screen a lot expect only a couple of days of power per charge.

well have had the phone for a week now, upgraded from the V20 which
i loved. the D410 is like a revamped V200. The menus are fantastic and
the whole layout is really good. its more of a mans phone in comparison
to the E800. i do have a few niggles with it. the D pad is fixed with
what it shortcuts to, which on the V200 you could program to point to
where you wanted. the T9 dictionary doesnt seem to store any words just
adds them to the text. samsung have got very tight with what they supply
with their phones now...i got a data cable with my V200 not so with
the D410. i assumed i could use the data cable with the D410 this doesnt
appear to be the case, however after contacting Samsung several times
they cannot tell me why! it should work and still does with the V200.
anyway the D410 is a fantastic phone and one i will be reluctant to
upgrade from. GET ONE!

Best phone ever! WIth this outstanding phone you have a super high resolution 265k colour display, a rotating camera, brillinat 64-voice polyphonic ringtones and cool games. The slide design of the phone is excellent and very cool to use. Shame bout the antenna, and it's a tad heavy, but these are minor faults. The camera is excellent, you can choose the image quality but it's best to use the highest resolution, because then you can transfer the photos to a PC for printing or editing. I'm impressed by the quality of the photos. Multi-shot feature is good too. This is a truly outstanding phone and the best out currently.

Nice Design, Most Clear Display, Bit heavy to hold in pocket, Nice rotataing
camera, Antenna dosen't seems good but, fair as I think without it would,
look like incomplete or unfinished phone. Amazing ringtones. Samsung
keeps it's triditions to produce attractive mobiles and again leads
the way producing 265k color display and 64 chord polyphonic ringtones.
the ring tons have really excellent quality. Again samsung disoppointed
regarding reception quality, this expensive phone also disconnects the
calls where the signals are bit poor, same problem with nokia phones.
Only Siemens works where nokia and samsung stops. Overal phone is quite
attractive. Pictures memory is enough but video memory pool is less
than satisfactory requirement of memory. It just hold 3 clips of 9**
kb each and as 3mb is total the remaining of few kb's isn't usefull.
I transfered the photos to pc, didn't feel any difference in picture
quality than it's size when taken with superfine and economic quality
mode. as you set more resolution of taking pictures the image quality
is reduced than small one. especiall I noticed that on 640x480 resolution
the center area of photo ( when transfered to pc ) is clear and our
is much blur. and have on phones screen it's amazing with it's 265k
screen. other hand the battery charge dosen't last more than 2 days
if phone use frequently all the day. but in normal use it can give upto
4 to 5 days as it's screen completely turns off on standby mode. Again
Overall phone is Good, but Much costly. only business class will buy
it without considering it's high price. As young guys will wait for
it's price to reduce.
