Samsung D900 review

 Review: August 2006  
 

Last updated November 2007

Rating:

In a nutshell: A massive bestseller! This ultra-slim slide phone comes with a 3 megapixel camera with autofocus, video camera, music player, expandable memory and Bluetooth.

 

D900iThe Samsung D900 puts the WOW! in WOW! FACTOR. Seriously, a phone this exceptional doesn't come along very often, perhaps not since the Samsung D500 in 2004.

You can tell we love the phone, so let's get on with the reasons why. Firstly, this is the world's slimmest slider phone (now beaten by the Samsung U600!). Samsung have really perfected the slide design, and the D900 is silky smooth. The physical appearance of the phone is unbeatable, with a lovely magnesium surface coating and a small but functional keypad making the phone very tactile and easy to use. The LG Chocolate and the Samsung E900 may look cool with their touch-sensitive keypads, but you can't beat the ease-of-use of a conventional keypad. At just 13mm thickness, the D900 even beats the Motorola RAZR in the thinness charts.

Looks aren't everything however, so let's move on to the next reason for choosing the D900 - its 3 megapixel camera with autofocus. This is simply the best camera currently available in any phone after the Sony Ericsson K800i. It gives results of amazing clarity, and what is really astounding is that Samsung have fitted their best ever camera in their thinnest slider phone! We are in awe. The video camera is also of high quality and records in MPEG4 format. The display on the D900 is very finely detailed with outstanding clarity and does full justice to the camera. Some reviewers are mistaken in believing that videos cannot be viewed in full screen, but they can - just press 1 to switch to full screen mode.

Next the music player. This handles a good range of formats - MP3, ACC, ACC+ and e-AAC+ - and has very good sound reproduction with 3D virtual surround sound and a digital power amplifier. The player is easy to use with playlists of up to 30 tracks. You can use the stereo headset supplied by Samsung or a wireless Bluetooth headset. The built-in memory is 70 Mbytes, which is enough to get started, but if you're serious about using the phone as an MP3 player you can buy a Micro SD card - a 512 Mbyte card costs around £15. The only real downside on the music front is that there's no radio included.

The phone has all the usual features that you'd expect - messaging, email, MP3 ringtones, speakerphone, Java games, etc, etc. The full spec is listed below. There are a few bonus features - a document viewer for viewing MS Office files, offline mode for use when listening to music on a plane, a TV-Out connection for viewing images directly on a TV screen, and EDGE for fast internet access. Connectivity is via Bluetooth or fast USB. The user interface is very nice and friendly, with a new menu design featuring a black background - very smart. Battery life is good. One gripe is that you can't use an MP3 for the SMS alert sound (same with all Samsungs), but good news - you can select vibrate and ring simultaneously.

2006 has been an exciting year for phones, but the Samsung D900 has got to be a serious contender for phone of the year. The D900i is virtually the same as the D900 but it also has an FM radio (but is missing the document viewer). The new Samsung U600 is even slimmer. The G600 isn't quite as slim, but features a 5 megapixel camera and is an outstanding phone.

The D900 has been the best selling phone for the first half of 2007 and there are now some incredible deals available. Use our links at the top right of this page to shop around for a bargain.

I've had this phone for about 3 to 4 years now. I've been pretty contented about this phone even though it's not exactly what I'd hoped it to be. Battery lasts about 2 to 3 days when making a few calls a day, which I don't think is enough. It only has 70mb of memory on board, which isn't a lot either but it has a card-slot. The screen is very good, no scratches after all this time, only a little dust behind it. It has just started to malfunction (the backlight doesn't always switch on). It's been dropped on streets etc, even been driven over by a bike, and all that did was take some of the paint off. The camera is ok, even very good for snapshots. I had a D600 before this one and I have to say, the D600 was a better phone, although the finish on the d900i is better. All by all a pretty good phone but it could've been better.

My D900i has given me four years of trouble free service, until I dropped it last year, since when it has been cutting out ever more often and now needs replacing. Trouble is, what do I get now? I like slide phones that are thin and light, I just text and call on it, but that doesn't mean I'll settle for something chunky, sad and cheap looking. It needs to hang onto the signal like a dog with a bone as I live rurally. It needs to show 3 or 4 tel numbers under the name and if it could e-mail, heaven! Oh, and payg. The relentless march of technology has left room for a niche manufacturer to move in here I feel. It drops one star only because the camera is truly dreadful.

Have gone back to this phone as it beats most others hands down, including the G600 and U600, neither of which are quite as good. Everything is easy to use and the camera is a corker! My young son loves his too. If you could put themes on it would be great, but this is the only downside and can definitely live without for the fact its outstanding in every other way. The music sounds great, better than any other phone too. Highly recommended.

Both have been dropped on a number of occasions and survived! Sadly I have to replace mine due to it having been through the washing machine as I left in a pocket of my dressing gown! Have just bought another identical one to replace it......great phone, highly reccomended.

Reading these other reviews is like stepping back in time. I'm writing this in January 2010, still faithfully using my original D900 some three years after buying it. I like it so much I won't swap it for a newer model. Why replace a classic? I've bought a spare model, identical, which is sitting in the cupboard in case the one I've got ever breaks or gets stolen. The D900 is the best ever mobile phone.

I have the D900. A reviewer below states: 'Both myself and my partner have had both the D900 & the D900i and unfortunately both of them have broken down. The D900 with a faulty charging block...'. This looks to be my problem also; my phone is about 2 years old and has suddenly become impossible to charge. As I take care of my equipment and the phone was not cheap, I don't really think 2 years is an acceptable life-span. Many people will be ok with 2 yrs though, and these are otherwise decent phones - just buy in the knowledge that they may not be with you for long!

I am now on my second d900i the first one something happened to the screen, I hadnt hit it or damaged it in any way but since the warranty had just ended bought another d900i as I liked the model. I bought my second one in 08-08 and once again I got up this morning and the screen was exactly the same as the first one. I have contacted Samsung today and am waiting for their reply but from what I have heard from other reviews I will get nowhere.

I've been using this phone(D900i) for over an year now and only curse the day I purchased this blasted phone for 9.5k. I mean I feel even my 4.8k Nokia 3110 was much better than it. I'll present to you the actual description of its features: 1.Camera - Average, 3 Mp good but the delay(2-3 sec) it takes to save,poor(nearly no) flash counter it. 2.Music player - pretty good. 3.FM radio - good. Though auto station detect isn't much reliable.I manually found out 11 stations(in Blr) while it detected only 4. 4.Ringtones,Voice memo recorder,speakerphone - Avg 5.Messages - Average, though the range of characters it allows you to type is limited to alphanumerics and a few symbols(heck I hate it when I can't use quotes("),apostrophe(') or star(*) symbol). Though messaging provides many good options. 6.Phonebook and mobile tracker - good. 7.Java games - Good. Though hardly any chance for installing a new game(4 MB constraint), also there are too many compatibility issues. 8.Calls-Huge lists for keeping record.But don't use speaker mode in a call, as they forgot to put option of switching back to normal mode. 9.Phone mode-pretty good, but 'no profiles' annoys me. 10.Browser(WAP 2.0)-it's like the worst browser there could be.. slow,unable to load big(>~200KB) pages, and not so good for viewing pages either. 11.Personal organiser functions - good. 12.Alarm-3 alarms-wake up(has snooze option), 2 additional alarms. Prettty good. 13.Document viewer for MS Office, PDF and HTML files - It's only a myth!!! None of those features is there. 14.Size,design,look,display - Pretty impressive, though display visibility is highly vulnerable to sunlight. 15.MicroSD card slot - It's handled like a uncopyable readonly memory, can't copy, edit, delete any file on it... on connecting to pc. memory card doesn't even show up. 16.MOST IMPORTANT - Battery - Max. on time - 3 days(if no call, music, radio etc.), 1.5-2 days(on 1 hour voice call) and you can do the math.. Conclusion: With every good on this phone, there are way more bads attached.. e.g. so many multimedia options but alas meagre battery renders them all useless..also good radio but can't be used without earphones and so, can't allow phone to be charge at the same time. For any queries, post a comment here and I'll answer them. Thanks.

Hello I just bought a samsung D900 ultra model the slimmer one for 30 in the post off ebay. Its a nice mobile phone everything seems good on it so far. Only problem I have noticed so far you cant put custom text message tones on there. Unless somebody changed the firmware or made something that can. Thats the only thing I find fault with so far at the moment. I would give it 5 stars but it gets 4 stars for the reason above. Also looking online this seems to be the biggest problem with the phone something so simple yet modern phone you cant change!

There would appear to be some inherant faults on these phones. Both myself and my partner have had both the D900 & the D900i and unfortunately both of them have broken down. The D900 with a faulty charging block and the D900i with a faulty screen and a faulty circuit board. I would not recommend anyone to buy these phones as they are clearly not fit for purpose. I repair electronic items for a living and I know how to use these phones and that is with a reasonable amount of care. Surely we can expect to have some wear and tear out of a phone before they break down. I have a motorola V3 which is a few years old now and I have gone back to using that and as for samsung's never again.

I know allot of people are saying it runs out of battery really quick , thats only if you use they games/media player for about an hour or so, i dont have to charge mine for about a week, as i turn mine off at night then in the morning its re-charged itself to get another bar. The only problem with the phone is that it doesnt charge off the mains, i have to charge it off the USB, before that happened though and i DID use it from the mains and it seemed to not fit properly, it was as if it was too big to fit in.

This is a good phone, I've had mine for over two years and it's still going, showing it's age a little though. I think a lot of the people giving it bad reviews just haven't figured out how to use it. It has a lot of features which aren't even mentioned in the manual which can make it quite confusing but they can all be figured out. For example, the guy who said his photos came out as mirror images, this is a feature you can get by pressing one of the volume buttons, the other button turns the image upside down. I don't know how people are managing to wreck them as no paint or anything had dropped off mine. The screen did break a while ago, but it was fairly cheap to fix at a corner shop. For taking photos, the sensor takes it's time, people getting blurry photos are moving the phone before it's done taking the photo. The charging connector is starting to wear out, so I think that'll be the end of this phone, but it's lasted very well and still looks cool two and a bit years on.

to all those reading this review DONT BUY THIS PHONE!! i bought mine one year ago and it broke just a few days ago , the screen would not turn on anymore.I know a lot about samsung phones as out family owns 6. But buyer beware this phone is riddled with faults and poor quality materials. 1. The keypad is absolutely horrible to txt on a it is too wide and too hard to press down and the result is CRACKED key pads. After about 2months the paint off the keypad started coming off and soon later the pads started cracking, i do not have long fingernails either. 2.The "ok" button in the middle of the keypad is an absolute pain in the butt, as often i would take the phone out of my pocket and find that the internet had been running for ages thus taking most of my credit. 3.The phone does not save sent messages! arrrgh in order to have messages that u sent you have to save each txt MANUALLY and to do this you have to open up the menu for each txt and clicked a few buttons for it to save wen sending. 4.The phone has an odd habit of shutting off at its own will and this seems to be a common occurence with most samsung phones. 5.the pridictive t9 is horrible 6.the charging slot is on the RIGHT side of this stupid phone so txtn while the phone is chargin is insanely annoying and the charging end keeps bpping out on the right 7.THIS PHONE DOESNT SLIDE WELL. i had always wondered if it was just my phone but my friend also has the D900i and trust me it is by far the worst "slide" phone made by samsung . Its stiff and so u end up haviung to press quite hard down on the screen and a lot of users have ended up having their screen broken so all in all just wanted to say this phone lasted me a year bought new.

I've sort of become used to it, but whenever a friend tries to do it, they simply can't, i have to do it for them! Good features though, only problem is that the camera really doesn't have auto focus, if i shake my hand even a little i get a very blurry photo that is almost indecipherable!

Had one of these for two years but broke the screen recently. Replaced it with the G600 because the shop told me this was a better phone . Wrong!! Camera is poor and operation is generally jerky in comparison. Think i,ll get the 9oo fixed!

This phone was given to me as a bithday present August 2008. At the time I was extremely pleased but now after only 6 months of having it the buttons have stopped working. I'm not able to go into my menu or anything. The only thing that works is the slide - I can accept and reject calls only. The buttons only work if I wait for the backlight to go out but as you can imagine this takes forever to do anything as after every press of a button I have to wait for the backlight to go out again. However, I still am not able to access things through my menu as soon as I get to the menu it throws a wobbly and the screen flashes wildly. I am not impressed with this phone even though I'd had not trouble with it untill now.

i had this phone for under a year , i loved it . the only problem was when you have a memory card , you have all your files in a part on your phone . also , while your using the memory card , it is VERY VERY slow . i wouldnt EVER buy a samsung again , they dont have the "look" they look cheap in my eyes , plus they just dont fit in . no one has these phones no more , and now there is a dearer version out , people think its the cheaper version , and you have paid 30, PATHETIC ! samsung is rubbish xo

I have had this phone for about 6 months and have had no problems apart from the size of the screen when playing a video as it is not full size. I read that if you press 1 this will make it full screen but having tried it the video size did not alter. Any suggestions to this problem. I had this phone as a replacement when my Ericsson 910i went faulty, my contract is up in April but I am quite happy with this phone but for the video screen size.

i really didnt like this phone. it broke for no reason twice (the screen went blank although when you called it it worked). and i would never trust it again. the camera was not up to a usual 3mp standard and was rubbish because it was in perfect position but when you went to view it was much more zoomed out and was very annoying. i dont think this phone hs even reached the star i have given it. BAD!!

Do not buy this phone it is rubbish!! Firstly, the battery life is poor, i am having to charge it everyday which is very annoying. Also after a while it will start to switch itself off even if you are half way through something, sometimes the screen will go blank so you just have to switch it off. Next, it doesn't really look very nice when you get it, it scatches easily and just looks tacky. I wouldn't suggest gettin this phone at all.

its ok nothing special. i always have problems with ppl hearing me on the line, and the battery doesn't last long at all, i av to charge it every night. I had nokia 6230 b4 this and that switched itself off at times. so really no fone is perfect, they all have faults. The best fone i ever had was the nokia 3310 and thats prob coz it never had all the technology the fones these days have. Thats what causes the problems all the technology put into them.

I think this phone is a good phone, however, in regards to the strange icon that showed up (I think someone described it as a red and blue fuse with a fire extinguisher) that doesn't appear in the manual, it is a voicemail message indicator. Go to Messages, Answering Machine, and check and/or delete your voice message

I HATE this phone. Previously I've had Nokias and Sonys and find the Samsung menu system very unintuitive and clumsy. Have had to refer to the manual several times to work out how to do simple functions such as select predictive text (*key) and select between different suggested words (0 key). Connecting to PC to view pictures/upload music was a nightmare, doesn't have standard small USB connection, you have to use the supplied software disc and cannot just view the files as a folder using a simple driver as with other phones. Also, you have to have the USB set to 'modem' in the phone menu, something I had to surf user forums on the net to find out, as it's not in the manual. Photos are almost as poor quality as my prevous 1 mp. All in all this phone has been a total pain, without any great advantages, and I will not be getting a Samsung again.

I would only recommend this phone to those who aren't into up to date features and only need it for basic uses. The 3 megapixel camera is NOT high standard and in certain lighting it is appauling resulting in grainy pictures. Another fault with this is that using the camera kills the battery in no time and when recording videos, the result is pixelated. I find i have to charge this phone every day, 2nd if i'm lucky, even when i do not use the camera.

Nice looking phone but had problems with both my original D900i phone AND the replacement phone with the screen freezing up. As a one off I would have passed it off as a dodgy one but with the replacement also having the same problems I would say it's a design fault. Easy to use but camera not very good as there is a good delay in the capture of the photos meaning the phone has to be held still until the pic has saved which is a pain in the arse. Video capture rubbish, sound quality rubbish. When I press OK to stop my morning alarm the camera screen opens up for some reason (as it did with the original again.. Design fault?). Battery port stopped working on the original phone, charger is difficult to put in... Very fiddly. Problems with the WAP too, sometimes it will connect and is FINE, then it stops working for two weeks which is quite frustrating. I am on O2 and although this might be a network fault I have to mention it, I can't get a signal, really struggle in a lot of places and it means that calls get cut short. Then I'll be writing a text and the signal will go, then a symbol will appear showing I have no signal and no matter where I go after that to actually GET a signal it will not pick one up again until I have turned the phone OFF then back on again. Great fun when you haven't the space on the phone to SAVE the text to come back to it. Hate to slate as it really is a cute phone, just a shame about the faults really.

I had this phone for a year and after 6 months, it started to make strange bleeping sounds for no reason (i checked the most obvious cause) then it wouldn't turn on unless connected to the charger. then it wouldn't turn off either. A nightmare!!!! I got this phone because of the camera, but turns out to be useless. The camera is in mirror image. I'm pretty certain i'm not the only one who had serious problems with the camera. It's a nice shape, small and easy to use.
