Samsung E600 review
| ||Review: August 2004
In a nutshell: Samsung's smallest camera phone with 64-voice polyphonic ringtones.
The Samsung E600 is Samsung's smallest camera phone, with a clamshell design much like the old A800, but with tons more features!
The TFT screen displays 65,000 colours, which is ideal for displaying photos and videos. The screen is small, but this is understandable in such a tiny lightweight phone. The E600 has 64-voice polyphonic sound and Java™ capability, so that you can download and play games, making full use of the display and sound quality.
The integrated camera includes Multi Shot; Matrix Shot; Night Shot; Photo Frame & Effect; 5x Digital Zoom; Self Portrait; Motion-JPEG; and Photo-CLI. The Motion-JPEG feature allows you to record videos and playback by taking a series of pictures in rapid succession. Photo-CLI lets you match photos of people to their numbers in the phonebook.
In summary, the main appeal of the E600 is for those looking for a very compact, lightweight camera/video phone. The E600 is only slightly smaller than the E700 and E800, which both have a larger screen but lack the video function.
Samsung E600 features include:
- VGA camera (640 x 480 pixels)
- Video recording and playback
- Internal display: 65,000 colours, 128 x 128 pixels
- External display: 65,000 colours, 96 x 64 pixels
- 64-voice polyphonic ringtones
- Messaging : SMS (with learning T9, 50 max storage), MMS, EMS
- Downloadable Java games, plus 4 embedded games
- Wallpaper & Screensaver
- Memory: 5 Mbytes (video storage), 716 kbytes (images and sound), 512 kbytes (Java games), 1.4 Mbytes (MMS)
- WAP 1.2, GPRS
- Fax modem
- Data cable (RS232)
- Tri-Band (900/1800/1900 Mhz)
- Talktime: 4 - 9 hours
- Battery standby: 150 - 350 hours
- Size: 82 x 42 x 24 mm
- Weight: 85g with standard battery

Well.. they don't make them like this anymore! My phone is 6 years old now- it has outlived all of my other phones as I come back to this one when they break! It has survived falls, losing the aerial and parts dropping off- and still works! The features are now pretty basic but it's still a nice looking phone to use, and with good features.

I loved this phone it's small and sexy, one bad thing would be no internet or bluetooth.. but apart from that it is the lightest.. coolest and it does the mobile phone typical job it calls people and it has a camera. The light flashes at the front of the phone if the ring tone is too loud and there are different lights you can choose from.. exciting! i'd say buy it! i want it back!

Bought this phone 3 and a half years ago and it's still going strong! Absolutely indestructable, if (like me) you're someone who is always on the go, and occasionally drops phones dowstairs, in ponds, or from the top of fairground rides this is the phone for you! (tried and tested) I don't think they actually make it anymore, but if they do then get it. Of course, the features are totally out of date, and I intend to get a new one this weekend. But it is the ultimate invincible phone!

I found that the battery life of this phone was dreadful, but other than that it was quite reliable. I did have trouble finding software and hardware to put my photos on to the computer, so they are still stuck on my phone - that destroyed the point of having a camera phone.

I've had this phone for about 3 years. It's great phone and does everything you'll want. It has great battery life and a reasonablly good camera as well as easy-to-understand buttons and functions. The only down side is that the txt length is very minimal so if writing a lot it often has to go onto 2 txts. Other than that its a great phone!

Samsung SGH e600 is cool at features. But the bad thing is this phone doesn't support some kinda JPEG format pictures taken by other phones also it doesn't have a good memory. I just hate it when it comes to take pictures, the camera sucks but the graphics, games, apps etc are cool.

This phone dies after about a year! No wonder phone companies make so much out of upgrades. First the screen starts freezing on texts, then you can't space or it sends you to random links... I loved it for about 9 months till the silly things like if you change SIMs all the numbers in one entry change to mobile icons and the camera is full of pictures of the junk at the bottom of my bag really started to annoy me. Lovely looking phone though and will miss the satisfying ping when you open it up... and
the fact you can use the camera as a mirror is fab for those who are a wee

I have been enjoying my E600 ever since I bought it. It has everything I need in a phone. The battery life is also good. The only problem with Samsung phones is text messaging, athough it is easy to get down to it if you are a fast learner. If they can improve that, then a Samsung phone will get a 5-star rating from me.

Do not buy this phone, i had it on O2 upgrade last August and have regretted it ever since. On too many occasions to count i have received messages that i had already received weeks before that would then disappear, i do not always get the whole text message come through and have to send or receive another text for it to come through, and the phone does freeze sometimes in the middle of sending a text. The most annoying thing I think is the camera button on the side of the phone - when it is in your bag the button gets knocked and before you know it you have a load of black pictures on your phone that you have to delete one by one. I am upgrading again this week and going back to Nokia or I might try Sony Erricson. I will never have a Samsung phone again.

The phone is pretty cool so far, have had it about three days, and I'm enjoying the camera. Predictive texting is quite easy and useful on this phone, as it predicts the right words 99% of the time, as opposed to my last phone...! Can it send picture messages though??? I'm on Virgin mobile, and I really can't get my head round it, even after looking at both the Virgin and Samsung websites...what's the point of a camera if I can't share my photos? The ringtones and volume control are neat though, and the overall design/compactness of the gadget is definitely appealing.

I think this fone is really great, its small nice, but one big problem the texting aint that great, as you have to always change the cases, and it always opens with T9, and it is really anoyuing but you get used to it. The photos are good quailty if you stand stil to take them, the recording of the songs doesnt go on for long and the video recording is class but again is too short and takes a long time to save to the fone, another miss was the ringtones are rubbish, just like the pictures as the screen savers, the games r great.

As a phone it's perfect. If it worked! Got one in November, within 2 weeks every time I took a photo it would scramble it - and did the same to all the pictures stored on my phone.

i got this phone a few months ago when it was brand new and it was amazing!
However, the novelty has since worn off, and i am actually thinking
off getting an upgrade in just a few months! The picture quality is
good (although it is a phone so don't expect miracles) and the design
is sleek. My sister got this phone too and she still loves it, but she
is only 15! It is brilliant for a teenager, but maybe not a 21-year-old
student obsessed with neat features! I wish it had more stuff and the
texting is a bit of a pain. Also, the ring tones are so loud and i am
sick of getting into trouble in class when someone phones me! get this
phone if you are not a mobile manic, but dont get it if you permanently
have a phone glued to your ear (like mua).

Hi ppl!!! I have had an e600 4 about 3 months and i luv it to bits.
The camera is gr8 and the video is quite gud 2 (xcept u can't snd it
2 ppl). The camera has very cool effects and i couldn't be happier with
it. Especially the self portrait feature where u can take pix with the
flip closed and see yourself on the front LCD. (VERY COOL). However,
the texting drives you mad if ur in a hurry bt i dnt care bout dat (believe
me u du gt used 2 it eventually). Da menu is really easy to use and
da 64 poly ringtones are mind blowing. I was attracted by its dinky
size and light w8 and i luv it 4 that. It fits into ur pocket with ease
(it so small half the time i think iv lost it). This was my first samsung
fone and i changed from the very common Nokia 7250i (okay fne 2) and
i think i will probably go back to a nokias afta this one. Don't get
me wrong tho samsungs r gr8 2 but i feel some of the features on nokias
are more thought out. I do av a slight problem with my fne however.
it keeps saying "LIMITED SERVICE". this stops you getting texts, calls,
etc which is a real pain!!!! Does ne 1 else av dis problem??? Ne1 hu
disses this fne is wrong. For da price it beats the e700 and e800 which
my friends have. They dont have video but are more simple to use i guess
and are a lot more expensive. The e600 has a lot more features, costs
less and is much more exclusive than them common fones. Overall I am
very pleased with this fone and don't let my nagging put u off there
just tiny little niggles. Buy one and b happy and proud of your purchase.

Firstly, this has to be the sexiest phone out there - you may like the
slidy ones, but when you're in the street, flipping this small sleek
phone to answer does feel very cool. And owning a S300 previously, it's
good to see they've cured some problems. These are: adding words on
predictive text, MMS capabilites and a very cool 65k colour front screen
this time too. This makes the caller ID pictures brilliant. And using
EasyGPRS to download all the pics to my computer, the quality isn't
that bad for the well lit photos - pretty reasonable 640x480 resolution.
Grumbles include: as somebody mentioned earlier, inability to copy numbers
all at once from sim to phone and vice versa (makes backing up numbers
v. tedious), short videos (30 secs), no loud-speaker so tricky watching
and listening to videos at once, should've had memory card slot like
the nokias, no stop watch... and I think that's it! These are all relatively
small because this is a wicked phone, stylish, and well designed software-wise

Reviewed by jen from england on 9th Dec 2004
hi, i just bought the samsung e600 and for those wanting a good review
on it i will do my best. firstly if you are deciding on the latest range
of phones. i.e e300 e330 then the e600 is way above them in my opinion.
mainly due to the fact that the e600 has amazing polyphonics and video
recorder. screen - very good screen display, on both screens. the inside
is 128 128 pixels which is slightly less than the 128 160 pixels but
to be honest you can't really notice the difference! the screen is very
bright and photo's come up very well on the screen. external screen
is also very bright and you can set it to either blue/green/purple etc..it
displays the time and the date although the phone automatically turns
off after a few seconds to conserve battery time. this is a little irritating
but you cna always turn the button on the side to see it again. something
which some people may be worried about is the size of the screen which
seems quite small. however it is perfectly adequate to display photo's
and isn't a problem at all. camera/video- extremely good camera, if
you put it on the highest kind (super fine) the pictures come out fantastic
but they do take up more memory. video recorder is also very good, picture
remains a little shaky but then again it is on the top end of video
recording phones and the quality is still tops. ringtones- polyphonic,
no MP3 ringtones though. very good selection of ringtones and more downloadable.
ringtones are very loud and clear and use the latest 64-voice which
is the best yo can get, apart from true tones. (but i do recommend you
don't put it on max. volume!) texting- not really a problem and certainly
not as 'impossible' as some people say. nokia phones are a little easier
to text with but once you get used to it texting isn't a problem at
all. you can also save loads of messages..i think up to about 100 or
maybe more! games- java gaming is very good, 4 games pre-installed but
i don't really go them so i dont know much about them. more downloadable.
all the other features of a phone are there..e.g calender, to do list,
recently dialled numbers etc. i'd say this is one of the best handsets
you can buy at the moment. for the size (which is amazing and really
useful if you want to slide your phone into your tight jeans without
it sticking out your pocket!)its got loads of features.its definately
a womens phone as its so petite and fashionable. its a very easy phone
to use (unlike motorola's which i find quite annoying) and i really
don't think you would be dissapointed. the only minor complaint is that
i think it is a little bit too expensive. it retails at about 160-190
pounds but then samsung is a very popular name, and truthfully you can't
really ask for a more respected name.

This phone is average/good. Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying.
It looks good, is easy enough to use, the camera is really nice and
games are ok. However it does lack a few features compared with my old
Nokia 8310 that really annoyed me! Texting is a pain, it always starts
on capitals and it's a real pain changing it every time and it just
generally hard to get the text what it wants. Another thing that shows
it lack of quality is the fact that words are spilt and half goes onto
the next line so it's hard to see what u've actually wrote and if it's
the right word! Other features it lacks is a timer, it has absolutely
no timing facility, no second hand and count down thing. How am I suppose
to time my cooking :P It also lacks facility to store peoples birthdays
or address under there name in the address book. The ring tones are
well rubbish and if u press the wrong button when u flap it open it
plays it really loud, grrrr. I've sent it back and am getting the sony
errision k700i, my boyfriend has it and that has SO many more feature,
all the things I mentioned that thhe Samsung e600 lack and more: for
example a picture of the person who send you a text comes up, unlike
this phone where it's only if someone rings you. It also has a radio
and MP3 player which can be played on speaker...how cool! So if you
want a small average phone, get this. It's not bad. I thought I would
be able to live with it being substandard beside my boyfriends but I
can't. I want my phone to do as much as possible :)
Reviewed by Paul from Ireland on 6th Dec 2004
Got this phone in september, better than the average i'd say. I don't
have any serious problems with it but it has started to freeze in the
middle of writing messages sometimes, which although is easily solved
by closing the flap it loses the message you had written which is annoying!
but other than that good phone. The picture quality is second to no
phone that i've ever seen, well worth consideration!

I got the e600 as an upgrade from a nokia, i am happy with it, only things i could say against it is that i would like it to be able to vibrate and make noises when a text comes through, also, my service light now only shows 3 decent colours, dark blue red and purple, an the green is very low, has anyone else had this problem? apart from that its lovely, unless i have to delete loads of pictures i've taken by mistake in my pocket!

This phone is excellent! I've had it for about a month, and have no
problem with it at all. The four-way zoon on the camera is fantastic,
the colour screen is excellent quality, and I've never heard such great
polyphonic ringtone quality. This phone had a lot to live up to since
I upgraded from a Sharp GX10i, but I'm very impressed with it. It's
small, it's light, and it doesn't skimp on quality. I'd recommend it

I got this phone last week and I'm just trying to get used to it - it's
rather a different set up than the nokias I'm used to!! Does anybody
know how to turn the volume down on the message alert 'beep'? Everytime
I get a text, I think my phone wakes up half the neighbpurhood because
it's so loud!! I've manged to turn the ring tone down but can;'t figure
out the message alert. Could someone let me know how please? (Or indeed,
if it's possible!) One other thing, is it possible to have predictive
text permanently switched off? Everytime I go to get a question mark
or something, it automatically goes back to predictive which I can't
stand, so I'm constantly switching from one to the other! I'd really
appreciate it if someone could answer my queries! Thanks, Polly

i've had this phone for 3 months, and i've got a few things that i'd
like to set all you monkeys straight on. 1) copying contacts from sim
to phone CAN be done and is terribly easy (yes,it is a bit time consuming,
but it CAN BE DONE!) if you serach through your contacts, select a contact
and go to 'copy', you then get the option to copy the contact to your
sim or to your phone - told you it was simple. 2) if your gonna complain
about the backlight and the service light you have two options - for
the service light, option 1. turn the service light off by changing
the display settings or 2. realise how dumb you have been by not noticing
this and stop complaining - if your gonna complain, make sure you know
what your going on about!!! and as for the backlight, you can either
change the colour so that it is not set on a colour that is really bright
or once again, you can accept that you dont know how to change it, or
alternatively, stop complaining. i love this phone to bits, the texting
suits me, i find it easy to use and dont actually have any complaints
about it. p.s. and to sort out the two problems above, it had to be
a blonde scottish 16yr old female who worked it out, didn't it?

I got this phone today... I am very impressed... it came with two batteries (standard and slimline) and it also came with a handsfree earpiece. The texting is easy once you get the hang of it (this took me about 15 minutes as the space key is located in a different place to my old phone) The only thing you can't do is send the same text to a list of people at the same time (if you can... please let me know how to do this!) I also have downloaded a few ringtones and they sound fab! The phonebook holds 1000 numbers (and no, I haven't put too many 0's on the end!) I like the screen... smaller than my old phone, (but you get two of them on the E600!) I have been very satisfied by the graphics of the phone. The video is cool and has sound on playback and picture quality is fantastic in my opinion... I love the fact you use the front screen when taking a picture of yourself. All in all.... I love this phone... have fun!

I love this phone - it was a major upgrade for me (from a Sendo!!!)
I spent a whole day going through the manual and putting in my phone
numbers etc. The coolest thing of all was being able to connect it to
my laptop via the infrared port (*you need to download the free Samsung
program Easy GPRS for this*). I was able to upload new pictures and
ring tones (and loads come free with Easy GPRS) in seconds to my phone.
The E600 takes pictures, records video, looks nice, has good ring tones,
surfs the web etc. A lot of the 'annoyances' people mention here (like
the service light) can be turned off. I love this phone - it was a major

can only use the pictures you take with the inbuilt camera). Any new
images you add to your phone via multimedia SMS from friends or from
Internet/PC downloads - they can only be used as wallpaper. It's frustrating
to know they're on the phone but can't be displayed when your friends
ring like the normal camera shots can. :-( If I'd been able to use good
quality digital pictures for my caller IDs I would have given it 5-stars!
But it's only a minor complaint! ;-)

best quality you won't be able to take too many pictures. if u want
to transfer the pictures to a PC, u need a special cable, better check
the samsung website about that, i am not to sure.The ringtones are quality
and the external service light is even better. texting can cause some
