Samsung D600 Review
Review: September 2005.
The Samsung D600 is an upgraded version of the highly-rated D500
and was voted Handset Of The Year at the Mobile Choice Awards 2005.
It's two years old now, which is pretty old by mobile phone standards,
but now that the D500 is no longer available, the price of the D600
has dropped dramatically, and we think that when priced under £100
on Pay as you Go, the D600 is still an outstanding phone.
D600 is very similar in appearance to the D500, sharing the same slide-up
form, but there are some subtle changes to the design. The phone is
thinner, but slightly longer and wider. The keypad layout is basically
the same, but with some small styling differences. The D600 is available
in a choice of black and grey colours.
The slide-up form factor has proven to be very popular. Like a clamshell,
it enables a large screen to be placed within a compact phone design,
and it has an advantage over a clamshell in that many of the phone's
features are conveniently available on the front face. A gentle push
will make the slide mechanism open and close automatically, giving access
to the keypad below. This design has now been in use long enough to
dispel any initial concerns about its durability.
The Samsung D500 was at the cutting edge of phone technology when it
was launched at the end of 2004, but what's new in the D600? First of
all the camera has been uprated from 1.3 megapixels to 2 megapixels.
The camera can take print-quality images and comes with a powerful 4x
digital zoom, an LED flashlight, a choice of shooting modes and an image
editor. There is also a high quality (by phone standards) video camera.
A useful innovation is a TV-out connection, so you can view your recorded
videos directly on a TV! The D600 also supports PicBridge for direct
printing of images to compatible printers. The screen has also been
upgraded and enlarged, with a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels, 262k colours
and stunning clarity.
The phone comes with an MP3 player, which now supports MP3, AAC and
AAC+ formats. The MP3 player supports 3D sound technology from stereo
loudspeakers. MP3 clips can also be used as ringtones as an alternative
to the 64-voice polyphonic MIDI ringtones that come supplied. MP3 ringtones
offer the highest quality audio possible.
The phone makes use of the same voice clarity technology used in the
D500. The phone automatically senses the volume of the background noise
and will increase the volume and clarity of the incoming call to make
it more audible. In addition there is an integrated handsfree speakerphone.
When it comes to connectivity, the D600 is very well specified. As
well as full Bluetooth support for wireless headsets and data transfer,
there is support for a USB cable connection to a PC. A Bluetooth stereo
headset and Bluetooth car kit are available from Samsung. As mentioned
previously, TV Out and PicBridge are also supported. The D600 is also
Samsung's first quad-band phone, making it truly a world phone.
The D600 can handle most kinds of messaging, including SMS, EMS, MMS
and email. It incorporates a new PicselViewer which enables office documents
to be viewed. The formats supported are Excel, Word, Powerpoint and
HTML documents. The TV Out feature can be used to display documents
on a TV screen if desired.
The memory available is 81 Mbytes - enough to store 60 minutes of video
or up to 20 MP3 tracks. In addition the memory can be expanded using
a TransFlash card, making the storage capacity of the D600 as
good as any other phone on the market.
Are there any problems with the D600? Well, nothing major, but some
small things that could be improved ... the PC software supplied isn't
the most user-friendly, you can't change the default message tones,
and there's no option to have vibration and ringtone simultaneously.
OK, these are minor quibbles and shouldn't put anyone off buying this
amazing phone! You can read the user reviews below for "real world"
comments, but what stands out is that there are no major issues with
this phone, and it comes quite close to perfection!
In summary, the D600 builds on the success of the hugely popular D500.
Whilst it doesn't have the Symbian applications of a Nokia smartphone,
nor the auto-focus ability of the latest camera phones, for under £100
it still offers extraordinarily good value for money. The D900
is the replacement for this phone and is highly recommended.
Features of the Samsung D600 include:
- 2 megapixel camera (1600 x 1200 pixels) with flash and digital zoom
- Video recording & messaging (352 x 288 pixels) with video light
- 262,144 colour TFT LCD display (240 x 320 pixels)
- Music player (MP3/AAC/AAC+)

- Ringtones: 64-voice polyphonic and MP3

- E-Mail client (POP3, IMAP4, SMTP) / vCard / vCalendar
- Wallpaper & screensaver
- Personal organiser functions
- Phonebook (max 1000 entries)

- Memory: 81 Mbytes + TransFlash card
- WAP 2.0, GPRS class 10

Reviewed by Ovie from Nigeria on 26th Nov 2005
This is my second review of D600. I wrote one not long ago, when I first
heard that it is out in my country. The price is about 70,000 naira
in Nigeria. Quite expensive for an average worker like me. But guess
what? i Bought it! And i wish to let everybody know that it beats even
my wildest imagination. The video is the best that I have seen in a
camera phone before. The PC sync software is super. I was able to Synchroinise
with microsoft outlook. It also comes with a Movie editor, Pic Edito,
sound Converter and data transfer software- All in the Studio 3. Needless
to say, the Movie editor is almost as good as Pinnacle. You can edit
your movies and clip it in a nice format to be saved from your PC to
your phone for viewing. I also enjoyed the Picsel viewer. not minding
the small screen (QVGA), It is quite readable. The screen by the way
is the best in a mobile phone. The TV out function just ROCKS my world.
the User interface is sweet, I liked the video which could be set for
an incoming call. The 2 mega pixel camera is comparable to SE 750i.
The video just knocks K750i off. How can one realistically compare QVGA
and QCIF resolution. D600's video is so much better. Thee's lees noise
and more fluid movement. Any SE lover over there? these phone should
honestly make serious minded people to go have a re-think and perhaps,
switch over to Samsung and the edifice known as SGH D600 The slider
and design is also good. This is a phone one would like displaying because
it shows what it is worth. To end my monologue, I wish to absolutely
recommend this phone to anyone who cares to buy. I just think you wouldn't
be disappointed. Because I am not.

I think this phone is great. My phone is not the be all and end all
in my life, so I'll keep this simple. With my job, I travel all over
Scotland and have no problems with signal strength (I'm with O2 on the
network side). The sound quality of the ringtones is first class. The
voice quality on calls is high. The design is robust and the slide action
very smooth. The menu's are simple, can't understand why anyone could
find anything remotely complex here. Texting is easy with the big buttons
(unless your thumb is the size of your average size 5 Mitre). The quality
of the pictures with the camera is superb. There is no problem with
battery life. I don't have any problems with the message tones, then
again, I don't want a cockerel or a juggernaut blasting from my phone
- call me old fashioned.

i have had this fone for 2 weeks and recently i was in town and went
t make a call, when i tried to make the call the fone turned itself
off automatically. I had charged it that morning and so battery life
is not a problem, usually u get a battery low message and u can still
use ur fone fora little while after that. When u turn the fone of the
shutting down tune plays and u see a blue screen and a just before it
shuts off, u will also see a message come up (SGH-D600) depending on
whether u change ur greeting message. I do not get those at all and
the screen flickers before it goes off so its not battery life thats
a problem.Its going back to phones 4 u tommorrow and unfortunately they
can only give me a new samsung d600 :(

Firstly, to give some perspective, I had been waiting to upgrade to
this phone for months, regularly calling Orange to check availability.
I have now had it for just short of a week -- not a long time admittedly,
but from my impressions so far I am going to send it back. The D600
is a lovely little phone, very tactile and quite stylish (if you like
`Darth Vader chique'). Feature-wise on paper, it has everything and
all to a high spec., but somehow things don't seem to have gelled. For
instance, yes it does have an MP3 player and expandable memory BUT using
the player prevents you from doing anything else with the phone, even
just telling the time. The sound quality is good BUT most people, except
for those blessed with exceptionally large lughole, will find the earphones
too big and be plagued by them popping out (although I believe that
it is possible to buy an adaptor converting to 3.5mm earphones, but
then of course you loose the hands free functionality.) Menu navigation
can be quite frustrating as you enter sub-menu after sub-menu for such
complex tasks as sending a text. Actually, I might add that I found
menu navigation in general a tad sluggish, although I guess this could
be a result of the software Orange package their phones with. Connectivity
is great -- unless of course you are relying on Samsung's software,
which is temperamental at best and an embarrassment at worst. Had I
not waited so long for this phone I dare say I would not feel disappointed,
but I really did expect more. That is not to say it is a bad phone,
far from it. The screen is beautiful, video quality is fantastic (as
long as in well-lit conditions) and build quality seems good (and TV-out
and the ability to read office docs is a bonus, although not make-or-break
for me). This may well be the phone for you if you like the look of
it, it definitely excells at some things, but for me, it's little idiosyncrasies
were too frustrating. Oh, and if you do opt for this one, good luck
with the message tones...

My wife has the D600 and i have the K750i. The first difference is the
display, which is sharp, bright and colorful in the D600, and, which
makes the point, is MUCH LARGER than that of the K750i. One Point for
D600. The K750i has the ability of playing Java3D games, the D600 not.
One for K750i. But the stereo sound of the D600 is GREAT and much better
than the sound of the K750i. One more for D600. The functionality of
the K750i is more complex, but therefore the D600 is easier to handle,
even standing. The manufacturing of the K750i is not very good (joystick
will break, rubber slits, keypad small and bad to press), where the
D600 has a clear concept behind it. Large keys, easy to press, sliding
display. One (big) point for D600. So all in all both phones are comparable,
but because of the better design, i would prefer the D600.

There is no such thing as a perfect phone - I'm very critical of ALL
the handsets I have owned, so if I'm giving this 5 stars, it just means
it's as good as it gets - savy? right then. Just prior to this I was
using a SE v800i. Loved that phone and was really p'd that vodafone
couldn't find me one that had no faults (keys & screens always the fault).Faced
finaly with having to replace it altogether, It was going to have to
be either the K750, or the W800 if I wanted to stick with SE - some
choice!. I didn't want to go back to 'soap bar' phones, and nothing
else offered any thing like the features of my v800... except the D600.
My Previous experiences with Samsung phones have left me cold... or
just plain irritated so it was with some pessimism I chose to try it.
First impressions: It oozes style. Sleek, sexy and feels great in the
hand. the slide is smooth, the buttons are great and the screen is gorgeous
(one thing I was afraid I would compromise on from the v800). Also the
menu in the sonys is one of it's best features, and I was plesantly
surprised that the D600's isn't all that different. In fact it has some
good features that the V800 didn't. Without resorting to the user guide
I could work thinks out quickly. It's quick too. Connectivity: only
gripe is the USB is only 1.1 (why?) but it connects well enough - the
bluetooth is absolutely brilliant and transfer speeds are really fast.
Interfacing with the PC studio is simple and effective. Network connectivity
is fine, no problems with getting a signal. Sound: Although the stereo
speakers don't seem to make a huge difference to the quality of music
playback, it is plenty loud enough and clear as a bell in phonecalls
and MP3 playback. Battery/Power: I know a lot of folk gripe about this
but I can honestly say I've never experienced the problems with battery
life that other seem to. either I've been very lucky, or you're all
doing something wrong! In any case; the charge on this phone is lasting
well - even with bluetooth, mediaplayback and photography. In conclusion,
it is an excellent phone and I am more than happy with it. It isn't
perfect - but let's face it, did you ever have one that was?

It looks smart, feels good in the hand. The camera and sound cannot
be questioned - both are decent quality. The downside ive noticed from
using the phone for 2 days are that the message tones are the worst
tones i've every heard (you get 10 tones to choose from). The phone
seems to take too long when trying to view pictures youve downloaded,
and its an inconvienence. The headphones are awful, and my button doesnt
work on them when someone calls me, so its a pointless hands-free device.
The battery isnt that good either. Havent tried the software yet, ive
sent everything to my computer through bluetooth, which works fine.
Having said that, it does everything you would expect it to do, the
pictures and videos look awesome, and the phone can pack some decent
sound. I like the Samsung text layout and this keeps in trend with that,
plus the games are pretty funny. I wanted the W800i, but it cost more.
I think that overall it seems like a better phone, but the grass is
always greener! The D600 isnt a bad phone (could have done with a free
transflash card :( nevermind) but it isnt the best phone out either.
Saying all that though, it will be hugely popular and you will end up

This is actually my third comment/review on this phone - previously
I gave it 5 stars.. I am now revising my rating to 3 stars... Why? I
think I am entitiled to do this as I had lived with the phone for two
weeks... It was great at first, then things began to become apparent..
1/. The single biggest problem I had was battery life - Simply going
to work and back again would severely drain the battery - playing MP3's...
2/. Call reception - after all it is a phone! My work colleague (same
network) got full reception whilst my phone had about 2 bars lit up
on the reception - it frequently lost me calls at work - I had to rush
out the buiding just so I could take a call - not very good! Thats about
it but since a phone is for using to make calls at the end of the day
- this model didn't cut it for me... I returned it for a SE W800i which
has much better battery life and much better reception... It also has
much worse video quality however... Maybe Samsung will work on the battery
and reception problems for their next model... I hope so - The D600
is still a great phone - just not good enough for me to be practicle
with over the next year...

Having been a Sony Ericsson user for some years I was looking forward
to a change. I've just upgraded from the V800 and love the phone - with
a few exceptions. There is no voice dialling (important if using in
the car), I haven't found a way of inserting a "pause" in phone book
numbers and I find it very annoying not to be able to have the phone
ring and vibrate at the same time. On reflection, I would have preferred
the S-E K750i but don't find the keys comfortable to use. If S-E had
brought out a slide phone with all the features of the 750i that would
have been the phone. If anyone can enlighten me on how to add a "pause"
on phone book numbers it would be appreciated.

i have had this phone for a day now and i am really impressed with it.
It has an mp3 player 2 megapixel camera, and the phone is reli easy
to use. its slide up design is great!!. there is one thing that bugs
me though, and although its not a problem i wanted to ask whether it
happens with any one elses phone. when i switch my phone to silent mode
and i got to the ringtone list it asks me whether i want to play the
sound in quiet mode and i say yes the tone does not play, but when i
go out and go back in and it asks me the same question do i want to
play the sound in quiet mode and i say no the sound plays. Does this
happen with any 1 elses phone??!! U can set downloaded tones as ringtones
if u go to file manager than down to sounds, and then downloaded sounds.
select the tone u want and another list will come up select set as and
then ringtone. :D people like dave and pete who are comparing two different
phones (the d600 to the k750i) it is pointless becasue other people
want to know whether the phone is good not how it compares to other
phones, its pointless giving it a poor rating by comparing the d600
to other phones coz some people haven't had the k750i so it doesn't
help them and it just shifts the ratings!! only rate the phone on its
own!!! Ollie, you CAN have ur message saved to ur sent box if u press

top notch quality then the Sony Ericsson W800i or K750i simply cannot
be beaten. I think samsungs marketing is managing to throw people off
the scent that this is the larger version of the D500. When i upgrade

The menu interface is far from user-friendly.. It's almost like Samsung
TRIED to make it hard for unfamiliar users. It's also heavier which
makes it feel thicker than the d500 and still, the button pressing is
a tedious task as the phone is not ergonomically designed. The camera
is good, but the absence of auto-focus means the K750i is still the
better all round option and I expect it to deominate the d600 in terms
of sales. However, I will grant it the second best non-smartphone, commerical

This phone has received excellent reviews for all the good features
- the camera, the mp3 playback etc, and these are great features, but
this phone is severely let down by several things: Firstly, in the UK
model at least no messages are sent to your sentbox, there is no option
to turn this on or off either so it is a software fault. Texting is
nowhere near as good as nokia's system. Once you have typed a word and
pressed space there is no way to change the word without deleting every
character of it and re-typing. The clear button deletes the whole text
when held down (a feature Nokia removed several years ago) instead of
deleting characters at a faster rate. When I click to add a word to
the dictionary it auto puts it in capitals, and then the predictive
texting will only put that word in a text, in capitals! The phone can
take a Transflash card, although one is not provided for some reason.
(Sony Ericsson phones are bundled with a DuoStick) A point to note is
that currently Transflash will only get you to 512MB, whereas the DuoStick
has up to 2GB I believe. Ive also noted reasonable distortion at high
volumes on speaker phone. I am currently considering sending mine back

they had with the D500. The way they sorted the address book has changed
from sorting by surname to first name (mind you, the D500 I have got
does have oranges software on it & the d600 is uncorrupted by oranges
software ;-) lol), accessing the various functions either through the
menus or shortcut keys on the direction pad is nice and easy, the full
screen play back of video is outstanding, its pretty good when you output
it to tv aswell. The facility to view office & pdf documents is a great
touch, the quality is good, but I found that you miss the top of some
of the documents (might have something set up wrong on the tv or the
phone). The mp3 alarms are x10 better than the very limited choice you
had on the d500. Ok the camera is on the back & you dont have the time
or any missed txts or calls dont show up on the standby screen (you
can just quickly check by pressing the volume key for 2 secs or press

Quality is outstanding! You can also buy an audio adpater that fits
in the side of the phone and comes out in a 3.5mm minijack for plugging

But watch out, a very bright clear screen, camera and sound try to drown
out flaws. Samsung seem to be top in some aspects but years behind in
others. Even the manual tells you what it does, but not how to do it.
There are 3 files for photos. Ones youve taken on the d600, ones youve
transfered from another phone and favorites. There is no way to file
pictures away, say if you want to keep something private. Ive not found
a way to save my messages on the phone rather than the sim card. If
there is a way then as i said before the "manual" doesnt tell you how.
The camera keeps getting covered by your finger and the menus for it
are a bit muddled although the picture quality is good. But make sure
you dont take your pictures in high quality if you want to send them
via mms because they will be twice the maximum size allowed. As will
videos unless you fiddle with the settings to bring the quality down
to other phones settings. There is also no way that you can have the
vibration on at the same time as the ringer. Its one or the other, or
one then the other. Overall, a good phone if you like to buy latest
model, good camera and clear sound, but this phone will be outdated
in a few months. If you want practicality, Nokia still seem to be ahead.
If you want the best gadget, wait for somthing like the O2 IDA exec

really sharp colours - although it does take the photos fairly close
up! The video is ok, not great but will do - seems to be quite fuzzy.
The handset it's self is very thin compaired to the D500 and has a large

in a 'self-shot' and you have to be carefull your fingers don't get
in the way of the lens. You can watch your videos back on your TV, not

I have just taken back my D-500 while it was still in trial because
the D-600 suddenly became available and who wants last week's phone!
Mind you, I had got used to the D-500 and really liked it. I had even
succeeded in synchronising my Outlook information on my computer (the
main reason I use mobile phones after telephone calls). As far as that
is concerned, I WAS a little disappointed that the D-500 can't synch
the Calendar information if you have any 'recurring' events (such as
birthdays, take-out-the-rubbish reminders etc). So I deleted all these
from Outlook's calendar (and replaced them all individually up to 2015!)
just so the synchronisation process would work. It did, and I was reasonably
happy with the result. I say 'reasonably' because the 'Contacts' synchronisation
doesn't include the Company Name field, so I can't see in the 'Phonebook'
information which company the contact works for. Bit remiss of Samsung.
Back to the D-600. I expected it to do all that the D-500 did in the
synching department, but after 3 days, still can't figure out why the
'Calendar' synch repeatedly fails. Bluetooth is configured OK (I have
synchronised Contacts OK) and I have even tried using the USB cable.
It still ‘fails’ to synch the Calendar. Why? How can I solve
this? Samsung Customer Support has promised to get the techies to phone
me, but after 3 days, I still haven't heard from them. That's another
failure of Samsung's - why can't we phone the Technical Support people
direct (as with Nokia)? I was disappointed to see that they almost never
called back ("They are very busy" I was told - hmmm, I wonder why....?)
when I was trying to get the D-500 software installed and up and running.
(When they did, however, their help was excellent.) Another problem
no-one has so far resolved, is why can’t I get the MMS function
to work? The message "Unknown Subscriber" comes up every time I try
to send a MMS (photo + subject line + message) to someone in my Phonebook.
I await Samsung's technical help on these issues, but don't get me wrong,
what everyone else says here to date is right - it IS a smart, sexy
and extremely usable little phone and I have gone out of my way to adapt
(ie: Outlook) to accommodate the quirks of the synchronisation process.
And I agree, it could do with a few more 'skins' too – the blue
version is a bit wishy-washy and I’m not that keen on the red
version. Also, I got used to some of the 'slide sounds' on the D-500
that aren't on the D-600. Surely it's not too much to expect Samsung
to include all the D-500 sounds PLUS add a few new ones for the D-600.
Thanks for reading this. Almost no-one talks about the synchronisation
capabilities of these phones, so I hope this help anyone who sees this
as being as important as I do.

well what a phone,i am so much a samsung addict and this had fed my
addiction so much im full up.I got mine yesterday after waitng for what
seemed like an excruiating time and its soooo sexy. its a bit longer
than the d500 but hardly makes any difference,iys thinner and sexier.
the camera has finally been upgraded to an excellent quality in the
same league as all the sharp phones,there's loads of fun things to do
with the camera like before and being able to view videos and pics you
have taken with it on your tv is so easy and wicked to use. Also its
brill that you can expand the memory as i dont normally take long to
fill mine up with stuff and now the camera is better you will store
loads so expandable memory is a godsend.The quality of calls is perfect
like the d500 so at least samsung didnt mess up on that like with the
e720. The only thing is is that there is only two colour skins on this
phone and dont have a clue where to find any more,tried samsung site
no luck. Cant comment on battery yet as till on first charge but still
showing full. so overall this phone is amazing and you will want one
and people will envy you and this will blow all the competition out
of the water, buy it,buy it,buy it. it comes free on a reasonable tariff
with 02,it will be the best thing you bought,I PROMISE!!!!!!!!!!
