Samsung E900 review

 Review: July 2006  

Last updated April 2007

Rating: 4 stars

In a nutshell: The E900 is one sexy phone with its touch-sensitive buttons! Available in black, pink or orange, and now very cheap to buy, the E900 offers fantastic value for money.

Best buy: Samsung SGH-E900 from Amazon Marketplace UK (£159.99)


Is the Samsung E900 the coolest phone of 2006? Possibly. Clearly derived from Samsung's hugely-popular D500-D600-D800 series of slide phones, the E900 takes the best features of every one of Samsung's previous phones and adds an uber-cool look to complete the package.

Just like the LG Chocolate, the E900 has touch-sensitive keys combined with a slide-up design. The outer buttons are invisible when not in use, and light up when touched. The glasslike touch screen with its glossy two-tone (black & slate) minimalist finish makes for a very sleek, very cool outer appearance. Touch the buttons and watch them magically light up! Slide open the phone and the main keypad is revealed - a standard keypad with good-size tactile buttons with a positive click response. The looks of the E900 are clearly derived from the best-selling D500, but brought right up to date with the latest technology.

Functionally, everything about the E900 is good. Starting with the display, this is a best-in-class TFT display with 262k colours and 240 x 320 pixels. The camera is a CMOS 2 megapixel camera with digital zoom and flash, plus a video recording option. Not the very best, when compared with the latest high-end phones from Sony Ericsson, but a good second-best. There's a handy mirror for self portraits. Wireless printing using Bluetooth is supported with a PictBridge-compatible printer. Like the D600, there's a TV-out connection, so you can view your recorded photos and videos directly on a TV.

The MP3 player is of high quality, and 64-voice MP3 ringtones are supported, as well as video ringtones.

The phone makes use of the same voice clarity technology used in the D500 & D600. 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.

Other notable features include Bluetooth and USB connectivity, and a generous 80 Mbytes of memory plus a memory card. A document viewer (PicselViewer) 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. Unlike the D600, the E900 is triband (not quad band).

The E900 has virtually all of the features that have made Samsung's slide phones popular, with a visual makeover that's stunning. Some may not like the touch-sensitive controls, so our advice is to try it and see how you get on. Compared with the LG Chocolate, the Samsung E900 outperforms on every level. The Samsung D900 lacks the touch-sensitive keys but in other ways is a better phone and is worth considering if you plan to buy the E900. The new U600 is also an alternative to consider as it combines the best features of the D900 and E900.

Reviewed by Jazzmin from UK on 29th Nov 2009
OK. Here goes. The E900 is a good phone, but it has several flaws should you wish to buy it for a teenager or someone who likes music and games on their phone. I got mine for my birthday a year ago and at first I loved it. But after a while the touch buttons get a little annoying, especially if you're used to pressing proper buttons. Also, it is quite slow when you try and play games on it. I have to wait about a minute sometimes for Top Gear: The Mobile Game to load. It doesn't come with much memory, and if you try and download music onto it it won't do it. You have to buy a memory disc. Maybe not such a problem in some people's eyes, but the memory disc was expensive and those on a tight budget might want to reconsider. Another bad point is the quality of the music. Well. On mine it's so fuzzy and indistinct when it's playing some songs you can't even make out the words. On the other hand, if you are looking for an organised phone, this is the one to go for. It's more simplistic than other phones, and easy to navigate once you've done a bit of base exploring. It's cute and compact, although it does look a bit depressing if you buy it in black. The keypad is good, but I have had some problems with mine cutting out when it's not on low battery. Overall, it's a good phone, but if you want to play music or games, don't buy it. I was certainly disappointed. Hope that was helpful, albeit a bit long!

I've had this phone for a couple of years now and it has NEVER let me down!! The battery life is 10/10 as depending on how much I use my phone it usually lasts for about four days - at least two, even with my addiction to texting!!!!! I would definately recommend this amazing phone to anyone. Reliable, easy to use, sexy touch buttons, and looks coolas an accessory. Another positive point is the colour. Mine is in hot pink and it looks really sleek! The only down side I would say is ... maybe the rubbish games? Other than that, a superb purchase. :)

For me, this phone is fantastic! It has a superb 2 megapixel camera with flash and the touch keypad is fantastic! I've had the E900 for 2 years now and have no faults at all. I would say that, for somebody who is not used to touch buttons, they are quite highly-sensitive, but if you are keen on touch buttons then this is the phone for you! It is an easy-slider, with a very attractive build. I definitely recommend this phone and it definitely beats the LG Cookie. I've had one of these and much prefer the E900.

Reviewed by Ian Gourlay from UK on 11th Jul 2009
The writer of the above review may not have actually had to live with this phone... I do, and would give it NO stars if possible since it's a masterpiece of bad design in everyday functional terms. Although I guess if your fingers measure 2 or 3mm across it may be possible to access the menus and submenus (subsub menus?) without hitting a wrong touch sensitive button and dumping a lengthy text, but for me, a normal sized person with perhaps slightly smaller than average guy-hands, it certainly is NOT. Previously I had a succession of Samsung's excellent clamshell phones and got on well with them all - but this thing is a total turnaround from the easily-used clams. This isn't my first slide phone, also had a cheap samsung slider that broke; it was less easy to use too - but not the masterpiece of terrible design like the E900. So it's not like Samsung don't know how to build a good easily used mobphone - they do; it's just that with this thing they forgot all the things that make a phone easily used and included all the stuff that makes it a pig in everyday situations. I guess it's pretty enough for a tar-black slice of plastic if you like your phones to look the same all over, but the fact that I'm looking for a replacement has to tell you that this phone has given no user satisfaction and has almost certainly meant I'll be looking at non-samsung phones for its successor. I certainly can't take any more of Samsung's new god awful head-up-its-own-arse design standards. BRING BACK CLAMSHELLS!!!

I've had this phone for a year now and i do love it but i am looking for a newer one. The battery life lasts ages! When you take the picture you have to keep the phone there for a couple of seconds after you ht the button otherwise the picture does goes blury. It can also be quite slow e.g. Going on to pictures you have to be patient to let the phone display them. I think the phone is good for it's price, i paid 50 for mine from Argos last year. There is nothing reallybad with this phone i am just looking for a newer one (touchscreen).

Ive had this phone for 2years now and it hasnt let me down once. Lovely red colour, making it stand out from my friends phones! Although the camera may not seem as strong as other phones but it is suprisingly good! There are different flash options, timers, mosaic shots, a range of shooting modes, effects, frames... the list could go on forever! It includes everything I need too such as a calender where you can mark on anniversaries, schedule meetings, or tasks. The internet is available and the memory is good. Bluetooth is very quick. If you dont like a dark background when scrolling through the menu, there is even an option to change the 'skin'!! I truly recommend this phone as it has served me well and has not gone out of fashion!

i loved this phone. I got it as a present and I loved it! The touch screen was great, and the memory was amazing! A few disadvantages are the fact that it has no radio, and the speakers to thr mp3 are slightly muffled. Also, the headphone jack is specific (not the 3.5mm) so it was a hassle trying to find them. But overall, this phone's worth your money!

word of warning: DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE, SERIOUSLY, IT'S TERRIBLE! I have had this phone for a while now, seeing as my other old phone didn't have bluetooth. I wish I hadn't now! Around 80% of the time when I take it out to make a call then even though there is a full signal it simply says 'Limited Service'; and won't let anyone call me or me call them! Once I composed a very long text to my friend - one slip of my finger and POOF - all my work was gone. It doesn't even autosave it. I also pressed the volume down button when playing music on a train. A couple of minutes later I turned it up again - well, I pressed the button - and it simply didn't work! So now I have a phone that cancels whatever I'm doing when my fingers come within 1 cm of the buttons, that doesn't make calls and has no sound. IT IS THE WORST PHONE I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!!! Really, really, really. Please, do NOT buy this phone.

Do not buy this phone. Thankfully it has now been taken off the market as I had had problems with the software not being compatible like it should be which then rejected all sim cards amongst other hassles from the very beginning. It would freeze and crash then simply not charge or turn on. After it was fixed several times I got a replacement phone, along with a replacement battery and charger and the same happened again, showing that it was a universal problem. There were many other problems with it including the touch screen keys so when it was put in my pocket it would call someone and use up my money without my knowledge! In a nutshell...it's awful

I've had the Samsung E900 for a good 2 maybe even 3 years now and I love it! Even though its quite old now it still works perfectly. The memory is great, I have about loads of photos, music and messages and still lots of saving space to spare. The inbox memorey is also brilliant as you can store about 200 messages before it tells you that the memory is full, which 300 for me is quite a fair sufficent space and a half! The cameras quite decent too considering its only 2 megapixels. It also has loads of effects you can use with the camera i.e black and white, sepia ect aswell as editing and cropping kind of tools. The phone also comes with headphones which is handy as the phone could be used as an mp3 player as well as an installation disc and usb so you can put your photos/music ect onto your computer! Admittedly the touchpad can be a bit tricky for the first couple of days but you soon get used to it and it justs adds to the modern funky design of the phone. Its never turned off on its own or frozen at all either! However on the other hand the only couple of bad points about the phone is that you cannot assign your own recordings or mp3 songs as the message alert, but still you have a good 10 or so set ringtones you can have instead which are pretty decent. Another thing is that I think its a bit silly how you can't make your calls ringtone play and vibrate at the same time its either it vibrates then rings your just rings and doesnt vibrate which I found a bit annoying as the person calling has already hng up by the time your rington comes on! But oh well, its just one of the few set backs. All in all a lovely phone! About to exchange it for the samsung soul after having it for years!

Had this phone for 20months now and I've never had any problems with it. The only problems are that the touch-sensitive keys are TOO sensitive...on numerous occasions I have been trying to take pictures and accidentally gone back onto the main screen which is really annoying!! Also, sometimes when I try to send a text message or connect with someone on Bluetooth, the phone restarts itself. The camera takes good pictures, however, you have to hold the camera very still and keep it there for about 3seconds after taking the picture to make sure it isn't blurry. The mp3 player is very good and I don't have any faults on this, although the volume could be a little louder. Overall, the phone is OK but nothing amazing!

i am changing this phone for the samsung soul. in the next few days; its a good little phone. people are too fussy over the touch buttons on the E900. i particulary liked the phone and its amazing sleek design. the problems i had was the colour on the pink one chipped very easily, there was no radio and when i clicked to look at my photos it took a while to load. after a while the battery does go real quick and i bought a 6mb memory card and the phone cant even understand the format even though i bought the one it said. overall i give this phone a 3 star rating its a good for now phone but after a while it gets out of date and boring,

ive had my phone little under a year and it is a well designed phone,the music player is very clear and loud,the camera takes great pictures. Not to mention the touch sensitive buttons it is a very smart looking phone,and indeed has a great array of cool features. however,i sometimes find that whilst either on the phone or sending a text etc,the slightest movement near one of the touch sensitive buttons can cancel what your doing (many times its ended my calls) not to mention that you are stuck with a set of text sounds and cant download a personal one,which considering the phones capability,id have thought you'd have been able to. overall i dont think the samsung E900 was one of samsungs greatest creations,heres hoping they tweak those issues in future.

I bought this phone 2 years ago, and its been stamped on droped of small buildings, set on fire and kicked across fields and has survived it all so i would recomend this phone if you want a phone that's reliable, the batterie could last about 2 weeks if i dont use it alot and about8 days if i do use it often only bad thing is the mp3 is slow, but i never used tht, best phone i have ever owned! the only reason i have to replace it with is becasue its not staple gun proof :P

Ive had this phone for a good 1 1/2 years now. the first thing i would say is that it is very reliable. ok, so the battery life isnt very good, but ive never had any problems with it. i got bored of it very quickly too and want a new phone now.the touch screen can be annoying but its ok.

This phone is extremely good with excellent qualities to it. The buttons on the top part of the phone are really easy to use and i had no problems. The only disadvantage to the phone is that the camera is a bit poor but it can take some lovely photo's in the light! I highly reccomend the phone as it has been extremely useful to me so i think you will find it very useful too (: x

this phone is good and has the best camera i've ever seen on a phone, also the memory is fanastique without a memory card. however there is only 2 problems i have with this phone, one is the touch screen, i often press the cancel button by accident, it gets infuriating. m the other problem is when i want to look at something on my memory card is the speed it goes, it takes ages to go through pictures or videos on the memory card. apart from that it is a fantastic phone.

I had this phone for one year and it is absolutely awesome. Now it has broken. Sent it back for replacement, and the damage is "not under warranty" - I was so careful with it, but no, the broken screen is MY fault!! Basically, slide phone screens break easily due to the slide mechanism been worn out, affecting the screen quality. An awesome phone, but if it lasts just one year, then don't bother...

Had this phone for a year and a half and LOVED it!!! The wanting to replace it, i opted for the Samsung D900. I really miss the E900-the camera was AMAZING (2 megapixals on this phone is Way better than the 3 megapixals on the D900.) The key pads just needed a little getting used to. I don't understand what happened to the battery on some of the other comments...i could leave my phone for about 4/5 dayz without charging it...AND as a teen i am a text and talk-a-holic!!! If it wasn't for the fact i wanted an upgrade, I would definately go out and buy this phone again! I recomend this phone 100%!

Ive had this phone for 18 months now and not once has it had to be sent back. Ive dropped it sooo many times but its still not broken. It looks a right state now though, with the chipped paint work and scratches and broken camera glass thing. But it still works. However it does sometimes freeze randomly then crash then come back on and I did get a text come through today from the 19th August when the date is 28th august :-s Not seen anywhere where you can buy these phones in the shops anymore but Im so glad I bought mine when I did because Its lasted me so long and Im still in love with it. Ive been deciding to change my phone for months now (I dont usually have a phone for more than a year) but I dont want to part with it. Ive coped soo long without a memory card, its very good internal memory I think. The cameras good but smudges easily (especially after a few drinks) But when the time comes and it breaks for good I will be devestated :-( If these phones were still popular Id recommend it to everyone.

At first when I purchased this phone I was really, really pleased with it. BAD NEWS: less than a year on and the phone will not recharge. I took it to a repair shop to find out if the problem had something to do with the recharger and apparently it was simply the phone! SOLUTION: I have had to buy a new mobile as no one is able to repair it. I am absolutely furious as that was a lot of money for a complete let down!!!

I am very pleased with this phone. It has clear menus and a slick design Camera quality is good although focus is appauling in low-light. Takes a couple of days to get used to the touch-buttons but once you do they are great to use. Personally this phone is fantastic for video recording with its supurb MPEG-4 quality. It is let down by the music player where a limited amount of songs can be played when using a memory card and only four playlists are available. If you are looking for a music phone, this is not for you.

Loved this phone! I only got a new one because i dropped it in a cup of water :S Camera is great so is the music player and easy to text with! If your going to get a phone i would suggest getting a samsung because they are probably the best make you can get and they last the longest ... Sony ericsons are great for music and camera but they dont last very long at all without breaking!
