Samsung E760 review
| ||Review: March 2006
In a nutshell: A clamshell phone with stereo MP3 player.
The Samsung E760 is a clamshell phone with an attractive silver case and a round display on the front. Inside, things are more conventional-looking, with a normal keypad and a good quality 262k colour display.
The novel feature of the E760 is the motion detector user interface / beatbox. The phone detects movement, so you can skip from one MP3 track to another by a shake of the phone. Moving the phone upwards or downwards adjusts the volume. We think this is a bit gimmicky, but some people like it.
The phone also has a good set of features - 1.3 megapixel camera, video recorder, stereo MP3 player and plenty of memory for storing videos and music. Battery life is below average and this is the phone's only real let-down.
Samsung E760 features include:
- 1.3 megapixel camera with 5x digital zoom
- Video camera (QCIF resolution - 176 x 144 pixels)
- Internal display: TFT, 262,144 colours, 176 x 220 pixels
- External display: OLED, 65,536 colours, 96 x 96 pixels
- MP3 player
- Motion recognition / beatbox
- 64-voice polyphonic ringtones / MP3 ringtones
- Dual loudspeakers / stereo headset
- Messaging: SMS, EMS, MMS, E-mail (POP3 / SMTP / IMAP4)
- T9 predictive text
- Downloadable Java games plus 3 embedded games with motion recognition
- Wallpaper & screensaver
- Caller ID with photo
- Memory: 96 Mbytes
- Connectivity: Bluetooth, USB
- WAP 2.0, GPRS
- Size: 88 x 44 x 22.5 mm
- Weight: 88g
- Talktime: 6.6 hours
- Battery standby: 280 hours

Had this phone approaching 5 years now - and still going strong! Thought
it deserved a review for that reason despite being obsolete! More than
a few times it has bounced along a pavement or floor yet it's still
kept going. Keep meaning to replace it as it's a bit fat (about 2cm
thick) and looking and feeling past it... struggling to find anything
of a nicer (smaller) size that doesn't have a lot of complaints about
durability etc. Stick your bulky iphones and whatever where the sun
don't shine - I just want a phone I can text with that isn't huge and
doesn't look stupid.

Well what can i say. I had this phone for more than 4 years now until
my feisty daughter and annoying nephew fought for it last night. It
was a wreck! It separated in to 2 parts (the cover & the handle)! DAMN!
The catch is that the phone still works. My only problem with it is
how am I goin' to transfer the 500 photo's of my daughter to my computer
when the LCD doesn't work anymore (plus my USB cable has been bitten
down to pieces by a sick old rat). Anyway, the fact that this phone
lasted 4 years of hardcore pounding and abrasive usage is outstanding!
Never had a phone like this before and I would definitely recommend
it to everyone even if it's obsolete now. This piece of junk deserves
a 10 out of 5 rating! And it's tried and tested by a drunken buffoon.

I have had the Samsung E760 nearly 3 years now and it has been the best
phone ever. It has been dropped dozens of times and survived. I have
never had any problems with it and I even think that the battery life
has been great. My only issue with it is I have been trying to download
pictures I have taken to my computer. I have used the CD rom that came
with it, read the 'getting started' help and I cannot get anything off
it. If anyone manages to find out how to do this, please post a message

Have had this phone for 16 months now. PROS: Better than average loudspeaker
music sound. VERY durable due to metal&rubber case - mine actuall fell
on tarmac out of a window of a car going at full speed, few scratches
only, didn't even switch off! Quite good camera perfomance. Plus, it
does look stylish and cool :) CONS: Low voice quality during conversations.
Poor battery life. Games are not even worth playing.

This phone is excellent. Reliable, easy to use, clear readable screen.
It is small but as a clamshell design it opens so you can put the speaker
to your ear and still have the microphone close to your mouth. The clamshell
design also protects the screen when it is closed.

i've ever made. Never had any trouble with it. The features are excellent,
it looks sexc, picture quality is good and the best feature of this
phone- it is simply the best phone in the world for texting! The only
downfall of it is its short(ish) battery life, mine needs charging ever

What can i say, today after over a year i am packing up my E760. This
is probably one of the best phones i've had, it was easy to use, looked
stylish and was reliable. For a phone that was relaised over a year
ago it has a huge memory - i tried to fill it and failed! I love the
velvet finish and apart from a couple of tiny scratches its stayed in
amazine condition (i tend to be very accident prone with phones and
am always dropping them etc). Ok the camera may not be the greatest
but you can get by with it. Some say the battery life isn't great with
this model but personaly i've had no problems with mine. I love this
phone, but as my boyfriend bought me a new phone for my birthday i've

I got this phone yesterday and I think it's absolutely gorgeous (comparing

don't like the quality of the photos. And after I charged the battery
for 12 hours the first time it lasted only 5 hours with 4 short calls,1
sms,a few photos made and playing the games (haven't used neither the
Bluetooth,nor the mp3 player, haven't downloaded from my comp).I've
just charged it for another 12 hours and i hope the battery will last
more. What d'you think - is the battery life so low because it was the
first time I used it or there's something wrong with it??? After all
I think it's a great cell, my friends were so astonished by the motion
recognition and they really liked the game with the maze in the pyramid

perhaps the camera...they could've put a flash).

went into the swimming pool with me via my pocket and I spent about
five mins in there before I remembered it. I left it to dry for a couple
weeks,prayed and WALA... It started working again as if nothing ever
happened.(That incident occured in February 2007) My phone has also
had several falls on tiled and asphalt surfaces.It still works great.Don't

OK, I found a few flaws of the model. 1. No matter what you do, the
alarm has to go off at full volume. After all, it's supposed to wake
up me - not my 2 roomies and the nextdoor neighbour. 2. You can get
a photo to come on the screen when someone calls you. How come that
doesn't work when they sms you? 3. You have the time shown on both screens
at all times but never the date. The only way to find out is to exit
everything and click your way to the calendar. 4. You can't assign any
part of the menu to the shortcut keys, just a fixed list of what they
think you might need. 5. It would be nice if I could create folders
to sort the files I download. Instead of 1 for downloads and 1 for favourites.
6. Also several playlists... 7. The zoom feature and the effects seem
to work for photos only, not any image stored. These aren't real problems,
of course. Just ideas about what could be improved. Oh, and dis, see
settings->display->service light. Though this isn't a place...

I couldn't decide what to buy so I went through these reviews. This
model had so many cons listed but I took the risk anyway. Lemme tell
ya - most turned out to be false. Battery's fine - lasted me 83 hours
at 1st charge (I timed it) No problems with installing the software
(Read instructions on CD) Yes, you can transfer from phone memory to
sim memory (PC studio) You can turn off any sounds whatsoever (That
one nearly stopped me from buying) The motion function worked out even
the 1st time I tried it. Message letters are just the right size (I'm
used to big ones and major scrolling) What I like best (compared to
my last phone) is that you can customize pretty much anything, things
that I'm used to having one version of and that's it.

I'm a fan of Sony Ericsson and still is, but with this model, i think
samsung did a great job. Bluetooth connection is superb. When i transfered
contacts to my phone from sim, it did it in just a blink of an eye.
Can't believe it. First time i saw it. Data access is so quick that
even the memory is almost full, still it processes data like fomula
1 speed. Just a tip guys. If you store music on it, convert it using
the itune to AAC format. It will reduce the file size and increase sound
quality. Hence, you can put more songs and volume is increase a 3rd
more due to the enhancement made by itune. This phone is just amazing.
Even if i'd be given a P990i? I will surely use this phone still. It's
just wonderful. For you guys out there? Get one of this and you'll be
happy in years time.

Fell in love with it the first minute i saw it. The beautiful silver
top with the black matt casing looks absolutety gorgeous and the circular
display really makes it stand out from the crowd. Unfortunately the
time and battery dont stay on all the time like the E720 because of
it being round but that's the price u pay for beauty:)))It's not just
about looks though, it has 96mb memory, mp3&aac player, bluetooth, camera&video,
top quality display and last but not least, the motion recognition function
which really does work!!! You can use it to activate the camera, mp3
player or the beatbox thingy when the phone's closed by holding down
the side button and moving the phone either left, right or up to activate
the feature u want. It also works for the pre-installed games and even
though it works absolutely fine i find it pointless cos u cant concentrate
on the display when you're constantly moving it about. There's also
built in virtual dice and lottery draw applications to complement the
motion thingy but i mainly use it for the mp3 player to skip/forward
tracks or stop the player without having to open the phone which really
is handy and no u DONT have to wave your hands in the air, lol, u just
make a small left/right and back movement and it responds. Camera is
pretty good as i've managed to send a few pics to the pc and the quality
is impressive. Surprisingly for Samsung they've included the usb cable
in the package which is a first for them. My only concern is the battery
cos it doesnt live up to the stated talk/standby time but other than
that there's not much to be disappointed with this phone.

Not sure what some of these guys are griping about with this phone really.
Battery life is fine - charge it up properly and it will last fine.
Easy to use, nice features, clear display etc and looks swish. Only
gripes for me are no infared and very poor ringtone selection (I shouldn't
have to pay £1.50 to download a basic, 'normal' tone instead of all
these ridiculous tunes). Other than that, very happy. (oh, and the guy
that has trouble with the phone flashing every 10secs clearly needs
to stop being so lazy and just read the instruction manual to work out
how to turn that off!!!)
Reviewed by Sonic from UK on 31st Dec 2005
Don't believe the other reviews when they say this phone only has a
battery life of 48 hours... That is only when the bluetooth is activated.
It normally lasts about 10 days for me even through heavy calling and
text usage. The design of the offset display on the front is fantastic!
You can easily open the flip with one hand as well. The screen is very
very clear and bright. The picture quality i would give 4 out of 5 as
it is perfect for taking pictures with lots of light, but when its even
a little bit dim in the room, the picture on the phone is almost black.
I dont see any noticeable advantage from turning up the camera brightness
either. The video has the same problem as the afore mentioned dark pictures,
but the sound is awesome! Yes the speakers in this little thing are
absolutely fantastic! With enough memory space to put 2 full albums
on, you can jig away to some really good sounding music. The bass comes
out well while not being overrun by the treble you usually get with
small speakers. The menu system is very well laid out and easy to access.
The speed of accessing menus and reading texts on this phone is instantaneous!
Unlike the new generation nokia phones where u press the Menu button
and then you have to literally wait 1.5 seconds, the e760's menus are
extremely quick. The most "fun" feature of this phone is it's motion
detection. There's a feature called Motion Beatbox and whenever you
shake the phone it makes the sound of a drum, or a guitar riff, or a
vocal etc... really quite fun and the ladies love it :D Also this motion
feature can be used in its closed state to access the mp3 player, beatbox,
or camera (where the front display shows the camera-view). Sound quality
from calls is awesome and can be turned up very loud if the person on
the other end is speaking quietly! The software supplied with this phone
to put on your PC was the best i had seen. It instantly recognised the
phone and i was able to start dropping music and pictures on to it straight
away! Fantastic phone, wont give it up for years to come...

Good phone with some advanced Bluetooth features. Main feature that
interested me was that you can stream mp3 songs from the phone to a
compatible headset in stereo and control all your Handsfree features
at the same time! Nice!

It's TAT!! I only regret I was forced to give it one star!No wonder
the link are giving it away free with new contracts! The battery life
is abbissmal, like being back in the early ninties.

Worst phone I have ever had!! Battery life is pathetic, lasts about
48 hrs max on stand by, useage reduces it even more. It's probably caused
by the cover clock display which flashes every ten seconds and you can't
turn it off! Regret moving from NOKIA.... never again!

Oh wow! I got this phone after endless misery with Motorolas. I was
tired of poor camera and video quality despite the high prices I was
paying. Thankfully, a great guy in my local phone shop came to the rescue
with this fabtastic little phone. The camera/video quality and function
options just blow me away - vastly superior to other phones I have used.
Piccies are crisp and clear. User menues are simple and nicely laid
out with great attention to graphics making all screen displays a delight
to view. Battery life and signal strength very good (though I found
sticking with O2 was the only way to ensure good signal strength). Can't
recommend it enough - far better than many "flash" models which come
at a heftier price. Only possible improvements would be a better charging
port and a wider selection of basic ring tones (only melodies available).
But those are teeny gripes. This phone deserves a 10 out of 5. Just

The phones decent but the shake feature is a bit of a novelty and wears
thin pretty quickly. When closed the e760 isn't as pretty as the e720
but just as easy to use. Still though the d600 is a million times better!
