Samsung G600 Review
In a nutshell: The G600 is still a fantastic phone. It combines
fab looks with a superb 5 megapixel camera, a fully featured music player
and 1 Gbyte of memory. It avoids the touch-sensitive keys of the U600,
making it a totally practical phone to use. Available in black, pink,
purple and silver.
Review: August 2007. Last updated July 2009.
The Samsung G600 offers the power of a 5 megapixel camera in Samsung's
now-classic slimline slider format. Although it's two years old, the
G600 has an amazing spec and a beautiful design to match. Samsung don't
always make perfect phones - the E900
and U600 irritated some users with their
touch-sensitive buttons - but the G600 gets everything just right and
is a real classic. Whilst it lacks the wow factor of newer phones, it's
just a fantastically good phone to use with nothing to detract from
At Mobile Phones UK, we like to start reviewing phones with a look
at the outside. Samsung's slider design has been around for about 5
years now, and is tried and tested. The G600 opens and closes with an
easy sliding action, and has a smooth silky finish that's glossy but
not a fingerprint magnet like some. The G600 is not an ultra-slim phone
like the U600, but at 15mm it's certainly
not a fatty. It's a good practical size, and at 48mm wide it's a couple
of millimetres narrower than some of the ultra-slims, which doesn't
sound like much, but makes the phone easier to hold. The keypad is responsive
when pressed and there are no touch-sensitive keys. The screen is large
at 2.2 inches diagonally, and with 16 million colours and 240 x 320
pixels is Samsung's best screen ever. The camera is well protected behind
the slide: to use it you open the slide to reveal the lens and flash.
Frankly it's hard to see how the physical design could have been improved.
5 stars so far.
The G600's camera is a 5 megapixel beast with autofocus, LED flash
and 4x digital zoom. The G600 is still an impressive camera phone and
one of the best in the budget category. The G600 features two useful
camera modes - panorama mode lets you take pictures of wide views such
as landscapes, and macro mode lets you take close-up shots. There's
a built-in picture editor, and direct printing to a Pictbridge-compatible
printer is supported. High quality video recording at 640 x 480 pixels
is also available.
After a camera, the next most important gadget in a mobile is a music
player, and the G600 doesn't disappoint. Every major format is supported
(MP3, AAC, AAC+, 3-AAC+ and WMA). There's support for wireless Bluetooth
stereo headsets - in fact there's support for dual headsets, which
means that a friend can listen to your music at the same time if you
wish. The G600 has a music player interface with a dedicated music library.
You can create playlists and organise your music by artist, album or
genre. It's as easy to use as an iPod. An FM radio is also built in.
Memory isn't a big problem either as the G600 has built-in user memory
of 40 Mbytes plus a 1 Gbyte memory
card supplied in the sales package. OK, this isn't a lot but it's
enough to store a few hundred songs.
There are plenty of other features - highlights include a document
viewer, offline mode, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, and quadband.
Battery life seems to be quite good - you should get a few days' usage,
depending on how much you use the multimedia features and the Bluetooth.
Can we find fault with the G600? Nope! Do we love it to bits? You bet!
The G600 was a very strong contender for Phone of the Year 2007 and
is still one of Samsung's best-sellers in 2009!
We've been surprised how many of our user reviews have criticised the
G600. The main complaint seems to be the camera. We can only assume
that people are using the wrong camera settings (make sure that you
set the camera resolution to maximum). The G600 may not be able to match
the picture quality of the best, but it's still a darn good camera phonefor
One or two people have complained about the G600 freezing or cutting
out when sliding the phone open or closed. Jay from the UK offers this
advice: the battery on these phones is a little loose and so breaks
contact with sudden movement off phone e.g sliding it up or down or
placing it on a hard (or soft surface) too firmly. SIMPLY place a bit
of sticky tape around the curved end of the battery at the opposite
side of the gold contacts which will push the battery closer to the
contacts on the phone. Problem solved, it works fine tho might need
two pieces. hope this helps.. love the g600 again now!! Thanks Jay!

I upgraded to the G600 from my lovely D600 and was horribly disappointed.

This potentially could of been a great phone but it has basic retro

use and many of the settings must be reset every time it is used. The
Battery life is poor coming up very short of the spec and the phone
generally needs charging every day at best every other day. Your also
not able to change the message tone which is archic. If you're used
to the abilities of the Sony Ericsson's K800i or Similar this phone
will disappoint you at every turn.

Upgraded to G600 from old reliable brilliant D600 upon end of contract.
Was expecting the usual embelished design and advances that Samsung
normally introduce... but, was exceptionally dissapointed with overall
design, appearance, usability and general interface. My honest opinion
- stick with one of the D-series - if you are already a Samsung owner,
you wont be dissapointed or if you are new to Samsung - well, give it
a go, you'll probably like it.

Got this phone a week ago and yes I am a Samsung virgin, I'm use to
my nokias and sonys but I have been impressed. The camera (when set
on highest settings) is ok, especially when transferred to my computer
as the phone's screen does not do the picture justice. Getting right
lighting can be a problem. Texts and MMS have been fine up to now. Music
player can be a bit annoying, could of had a better design and better
functions but still ok. Volume was low but you can just change volume
of song on computer then transfer to phone and it does the job perfect.
Battery is brilliant and bluetooth headset is suprisingly good. I think
best thing to do is check ALL the settings before you start to use the
phone properly and it will work out just fine!

A phone with serious flaws: appalling instructions and user interface
makes it a real pain to do basic things like customising the ring tone
or stopping it from bleeping with every key press, although I eventually
worked both of these out. Also the bluetooth earpiece supplied is a
worthless Christmas cracker trinket, it relies entirely on the uncomfortable
earbud to hold it in place: reach up to answer a call and it falls out
leaving the user to fumble about on the floor to pick it up. Not good
when driving! I tried my trusty Jabra earpiece with it; it paired up
OK but the microphone gain was too low for callers to hear me and there
is no adjustment available. The one thing that I really hate is that
the phone has Bluetooth but no voice-dialling; a startling and frustrating
omission which has caused me to arrange a contract cancellation as I'm
still within the cooling-off period. Another annoying feature is text
messaging: I usually send the same text to multiple recipients at once,
this phone limits me to ten at a time. More ridiculously, I have to
keep the slider open until all recipients have been sent the text: if
I close it sooner than this the remainder do not get sent and end up
in the drafts folder. The weighting of the phone means that with the
slider open it's very unbalanced and top-heavy. This means that when
texting it's very easy to drop the phone. The camera seems fine after
overriding the default settings but I don't need it. Cameras on phones
are a gimmicky toy to me; they're all rubbish at taking photos and none
have a decent USABLE flash in low light. I didn't test the music player
features or the radio as I have a perfectly good standalone unit with
excellent sound quality. Battery life seems good even with Bluetooth
activated and the phone is sleek and shiny with an excellent thumb-pad
control. Just a shame that when the centre button is pressed the phone
connects to the internet; this is too easy to do accidentally and ends
up costing the user a lot of money. Something else which ruins the phone
for me is that I always use slide or clam phones so that they cannot
dial 999 or 112 whilst in my pocket (forget keypad locks: when set every
one I've ever tried still allows these numbers to be called). With this
phone it's possible to activate the phone when closed simply by pressing
the two softkeys...DUHHH!! It then happily dials the last numbers I've
called and/or 999 whilst in my pocket and there's no way to switch this
"benefit" off! In conclusion: if you want a smart looking phone and
are prepared to put up with the annoying initial set up it's an OK bit
of kit for many users but a for me it fails as it simply cannot do what
I need it to do to even a basic level. DO NOT BUY if you need to use
Bluetooth and voice-dialling or if you send bulk text messages.Certainly
avoid it if you keep the phone in your pocket. At this price-level,
Samsung could have easily had a superb phone but instead managed to
snatch defeat from the jaws of triumph.

After having problems with a Samsung D500 and another model E530 a few
years ago I vowed never to buy another Samsung, but this new sexy looking
model looked great and had such good reviews on this site I thought
they must have improved by now. But how wrong was I. The camera is rubbish,
very fuzzy more like the old 1.3mp, its not very loud when listerning
to music. I have had trouble with the bluetooth. If I have been listerning
to the radio with the headphones and then turn on my bluetooth handsfree
kit I cant hear the other person when i make a call, I have to turn
the fone of n on to reset it. Today I had a call and went to answer
it by flipping it up and it would not let me take the call which was
very annoying. Also the reception is not very good. Do you know what
I like about this phone........NOTHING. I wish I had read the consumer
reviews before i changed my phone I would have gone for the new Sony
Ericsson K850i. Simply avoid all Samsung phones I have learned my lesson

I've had my Samsung G600 now for 10 days and I am beginning to love
it, but... I broke the screen within 3 days of having it, not a good
sign at all which put me off, but... having taken the insurance (£5.99
a month) for the 1st time I was lucky & swapped it for another handset
which I truly believe has a stronger face over the LCD display making
me wonder if Samsung know about this problem. I say problem because
the very first time I opened it using my thumb to slide it up I noticed
the sort of LCD 'wave' that you get if you press too hard. It made me
wonder about the quality of build but as I say having swapped it I genuinely
believe this has been fixed. The other thing that I am not very keen
on is that when you send a text or picture message you have to wait
until it has sent before you can close the phone otherwise it saves
it to the Draft folder without the recipients name which can be a pain!
But having said all that I do love it too bits (sad I know, it's only
a phone!) because although it is not flawless, and by this I only mean
with the sending message problem, it IS very light and compact, it DOES
have a good battery life, it's camera and features ARE great (the panaromic
feature is well done), the menus are good, it has a very good music
player complete with a 1gb memory card supplied. It's is a very good
phone. I considered the Nokia N95 and know of people who have got them
but was put off by it's size and features that I may not use so opted
for the much slimmer but fully packed G600. It has stereo bluetooth
option for music playback and internet access complete with Google.
I strongly recommend this phone even though I considered swapping it
for something else, possibly the Nokia as I had an N80 before, especially
as it broke so easily. I had it in my trouser pocket with nothing else,
took it out and the screen had cracked. As I say I think that the screen
problem has definitely been resolved so I've nothing else to say but
get this phone! Beg, borrow or steal (metaphorically speaking, of course!)
but get this phone, it's well cool! 5 Stars *****

Things started out great with this handset but went very quickly downhill
from day one. Most importantly - the 5mp camera - the featurepoint of
the entire phone is terrible. Yes, I have it set to the highest settings
posible but it's barely better than my old 2mp N70. Proof that it's
generally not the pixel count that matters but more about the quality
of the lens that's used. Bog standard Samsung lens vs the superior quality
Carl Zeiss lens as found in the Nokia N series phones. Hmmm. The MP3
player is functional but not spectacular - if you already have a half
decent dedicated player, I can't see this replacing it. the buttons
while better than those on the U600 are unresponsive muich of the time
and two or three presses are needed. As for texting, you can forget
it from this handset - the software is snail like and takes forever
to catch up with your fingers. Not the worst handset I've ever owned
but probably the worst flagship handset I ever have.

Read a few customer reviews with intrest, just thought i'd like to add
a few things. First camera 5mp rating can be misleading, but with the
file qaulity set to super fine AND resolution set to highest you will
get respectable pics. [Editor's comment: good point, Marc. I wonder
if some of the other folk here have their cameras on a low resolution
setting?] Focus and lighting can be hit and miss, so if you really want
a perfect pic take 2 or 3 so you know at least one will be good. Set
the phone to save to memory card and learn the options/settings you
have! I have no problems using the PC studio software on XP, I personally
find it fiddly. So i've set my phone to sync through usb not PC studio.
Then its simple to view your pictures through XP software, you can then
drag and drop your pics to documents. Its also the simplist way to put
mp3's on the phone by just dragging and dropping direct to the memory

had the G600 for nearly a month now after having a sony ericsson w900i.
this is, without a doubt, a very, very decent phone. the battery life
is very good and the music player is ace. but... im afraid the camera
is rubbish - no joke. my last phone had a 2megapixel camera and it took
much, much, much better photos. how can a 5megapixel camera take such
awful pictures? i wouldnt be bothered if the quality was 'similar' to
my previous phone, but it isnt, it is very poor. the pictures blur so
very easily - utter rubbish for taking pictures of friends or pets.
oddly enough - and this suprised me a lot - but the 'video' capture
quality is actually really good - better then my last phone. how is
this? oh well... got it for 18months now so better get used to it...
such a shame as everything about this phone is MINT!!!!

Ok so it looks really nice, I was thinking of my old reliable samsung
D500 from years ago when I bought this. Now I have it, I dont like it.
The phone is slow and unresponsive when you push the buttons, texting
just isnt easy (its not something u would manage quickly and on the
fly) I was really disappointed in the camera, the k800 with a lesser
quality camera can wipe the floor with this supposed 5 megapixels. The
loudspeaker is really quiet too.... and see if I press the loudspeaker
button its generally because I want the phone on loudspeaker!... so
why have a confirm option come up first?! How many menus do you want
to go through to send a text?..... if you are having an affair, there
is absolutely no chance of mistakingly sending a text to the wrong love
interest!! thats for sure. (new... recipient... recent... add..... type...
send?) I also dislike the corners of the phone which dig into small
hands when texting, therefore its a 2 handed effort to text, one to
hold one to type. Its not user comfortable. I know not everybody is
interested but the little extras (clip art, daft message tones etc)
are all missing its just very bland. It feels of good quality, nice
weight, and a good looking phone but each day I find something else
I really dont like (had the phone 4 days)If it had one thing that impressed
me ie camera or features then I probably would keep it but it is definitely
going back. Sorry, I wanted it to be great.... not so!

Absolutely love this phone. First thought when i opened it was that
it was quite a masculine looking phone, but i had the choice out of
this or the d900i but i chosee the g600 as it was a better phone, even
if the d900i was definately better looking. So easy to use, phone charged
very quickly and contacts appeared straight away from sim. Ive not had
a samsung phone before, so the layout was new, but i found it was even
easier than Nokia's. The music is perfect, great quality and, with the
1 gig of memory, can take alot. Camera is awesome, took me a while to
get the hang of it, but its still good. The only downside is that you
have to hold it in position for around 2 seconds after taking so it
doesnt blur. My absolutely favourite part of the phone is being able
to make your own display settings. So easy and great to be able to personalize
a phone like this. It took me ages to decide this phone over the d900i
but im so glad i piked this one. Apart from being a bit masculine, the
screens massive and doesnt get dirty at all. Plus when the phone is
not slid up, you can access all the menu's and do whatever needed without
opening it. Perfect. Great phone, nothing wrong with it at all, definately

OK it’s not perfect, but it’s still a very good phone. First
thought was the build quality, it feels rock solid when you hold it,
got quite a surprise when I took the back off to insert the SIM as the
back is plastic! It doesn’t give that impression when you hold
it. Phone Book move was perfect and came across in it’s full structure
and not as individual contacts per number. This was done in well under
5 minutes: Sync Nokia 6280 with MS Outlook and then Sync the G600 (via
PC Studio which does work on XP) to MS Outlook. It’s been a while
since I last used my E900 but I very soon found myself getting back
in the swing with the Samsung Menu Layout. I love the Contact Name that
comes up on the SMS Received Notification, that’s a great help
for me. No problems with Volume Levels here and the Camera seems very
good, even with Flash Use! Great to see the G600 coming with a Good
Quality Bluetooth Kit in the Box and also a 1Gb Memory Card in the Box.
A couple of small issues for me, but not problems! 1 - It’s a
little uncomfortable to hold when on a Call if you’re Charging
the Phone. The Cable is right in the place where the Phone would sit
in the palm of your hand. 2 – Also when on a Call I found that
my thumb position seems to get in the way of the Signal Strength Sensor!
Just a slight move of the thumb and Signal goes straight back up to
Full Strength. Right, now have to go round the house and gather up all
my Nokia Chargers, almost one in every room and one in each of my travel
bags. To me that’s all Nokia has going for it at the moment, a
Charger for almost All their Phones, wish Samsung would the same! D600
/ E900 / G600 and three different Chargers. All in all I would recommend
the G600, it’s a Very Good rock solid Phone that does the Job!

sensor seems to be knackered as it keeps the keypad light OFF even in
the dark, Having had a k800i for over a year, it is a annoying that
i keep going on to the internet, when i try to access my menu, Also
after having the se k800i i was spolied by its camera and solid build,
not to mention the way it organises files, The "5mp" camera is clearly
not 5mp to look at, and is very blury unless you have iron arms and

I'm very happy with the phone, its just right for my needs. I like the
feel of it and its build qaulity, glad they did the screen surround
out of metal to give it strength, as the old D900 was prone to breaking
due to flex. And its a nice compact size thats just right. I like the
menu layout and features, o.k they may be a bit fiddly in places, but
once you've familarised yourself with the menu you soon learn to navigate
all the features easily. And there are plenty of things to play with.
The features are not perfect, but true perfection is hard to find, i've
not found how to assign mp3's to txt messages yet, but thats hardly
a major let down, I can forgive that with ease. The screen is excellent
nuff said about that. The music player is very good, its not as good
as a stand alone mp3 player but as a back up when your bored perfect!
The standard headphones are o.k, but better ones do improve the sound
slightly. As for camera I know that some of the Sony phones and Nokia
N73/95 do pruduce better pictures I knew that before I bought the phone.
I'm sorry to say it if you bought this phone cause it has a 5mp camera
and you believe that this will make the camera awesome then your a fool,
sorry. But really with all the settings turned up, the pictures are
very good for a phone, again its perfect for those odd snaps when you
don't have a proper digital camera at hand, I use it for work to i'd
fungal brackets on trees, on macro its excellent and highly detailed,
although the lighting and focus can be hit and miss. Battery life is
good. And don't forget that you get a bluetooth headset and 1gb card
included with the phone. So all in all a very good all round package.
I repeat: The 5mp thing is a gimmick, it does improve the quality but
only marginally, it has more to do with optics, the difference between
3.2mp and 5mp is the size of print you can make, a decent 3.2mp camera
will take just as good pictures as a 10mp on a standard 6 x 4 print.
Maybe one day there will be a phone that has a built in camera and mp3
player that is equal to the stand alone products, just not yet.

They've change the menu quite a bit and you can create your own themes
which is fantastic. Havent noticed much difference in camera quality
tbh except for it being much faster but the video has improved drastically
and can record at VGA!! Havent tested it much but the music player also
seems better in all departments, eg sound quality, interface and battery
performance, from the D900. As i said before, the main drawback of this
is the size if you're used to the D900 and not quite as sleek looking
but it is more powerful on the multimedia side and battery seems to
last more than 2days so it's definitely a worthy upgrade!

system is dreadful and clumsy. Not thought out well at all. If you have
numbers backed up on yur SIM too then the address book shows all the
duplicates and no you can not import from your SIM that has spent time
in your SE because the import erases any 2nd number you have stored
on a contact. This phone looks great and will seduce many into making
a purchase but realistically, it is only going to disappoint you. And

Let me expand on that for a sec - it's 5mp but do not compare it to
the outstanding N95 camera. OK it's "good" but not as good as you'd
expect. The flash has a slight pink tinge to it for some reason. The
video camera is alright (better than a Sony Ericsson thankfully) but
again not as good as the N95. Annoyingly you can only use one of the
4 preset text alerts - I say 'annoyingly' as this was supposed to be
the replacement for the U600, which actually allows you to use mp3s
as alerts. Speaking of which, the mp3 player is adequate. Nothing special
but as good most other phones these days. All things considered it's
a pretty good phone but sadly just short of 5 stars. This phone could

many messages you can store on your phone, 200 to be exact, while this
seems a lot, you can soon eat up that amount if you wish to keep that
special message or 2. The second disadvantage you have only got a choice
of 4 Message tones, booooooring, I still think the camera is not great,
it looks more like a 3 mega pixel rather than a five, come on Samsung,

Only got my handset Saturday 8th September but it's already been returned
to the store for a replacement due to it unexpectedly restarting itself
off whenever I received an incoming call! Even worse, it hasn't logged
the calls so people have been unable to get hold of me for two days
and I've no idea how many calls I've missed! This is the same problem
as John below and - according to the store - the second one they've
taken back out of about 40 handsets supplied so far. So a failure rate
of 1 in 50 - good or bad? Apart from that - which I'm hoping is just
a duff handset rather than an inherent fault - the phone initially seems
very high quality. Up until recently I had a U600 upgrade from my work
contract which I hated from the moment I received it and which eventually
went on E-Bay. Happy to say this is not the same disaster as that, and
it feels much sturdier and better made. Peculiarly, it doesn't take
the same charger though, meaning you'll have to buy yet another one
if you need a second charger for work use. This also means that your
U600 earphones will also be incompatible with this. Despite it being
a lovely handset, at the moment I can only give it three starts due
to the resetting problem - especially since I now know I'm not the only
one who's experienced this!

Writing texts was slow as the keypad isnt very tactile and the top row

of this phone is the camera. I have got rid of my digital camera because
in mega-pixel terms this has more! The camera interface is very usable,
perhaps not a simple as the one seen on cyber-shot phones. Most camera
phones like the K810i ect. have a good camera and it stops there. They
have poor music players and other fun applications are rare. This cannot
be said for the G600. The music player is awesome! I am a fan of visualisations
wich most mp3 players don't give (including the iPod) and this does
not dissapoint! It has very nice visualisations! Overall the music player
is the best I've seen in a phone (even beats the walkman player!). Now
this phone is also a star at doing what a phone was made for. Phoning
People! I found signal and reception perfect. The texting service is
great too. I think this phone will be a legend like the flagship samsung

with manual tuning it doesn't take long to add your fav stations. The
biggest headache is the dumb software, PC Studio, which even when it
SAYS it is connected to the phone, refuses to actually do anything.
It just comes back with the message "The operation is timed out!" (excellent
grammar!) This makes installing all of your contacts for the first time
either laborious or expensive (sending vCards from your old phone).

This is the phone we've all been waiting for. If you remember in my
last review when I talked about the Samsung U600, I said Samsung should
go back to the drawing board and come up with a different phone, and
not the same thing in a new shell. I think samsung has done just that.
This phone is superb. I expect it to win phone of the year in the GSMA.
It is all a man could dream of or ever want from a phone. Panorama view
when taking PICS of landscapes? Wow! First of it's kind... The only
thing short is a lack of an operating system. But who cares? The phone
meets every other expectation. I absolutely recommend it to everyone.
I'll get one myself when it becomes readily available in Nigeria. I
give it an absolute 5 Stars!!!!!!

Very stylish phone, excellent battery life, very easy to use, snazzy
interface, hasnt got 3G but still found the mobile internet to work
quickly. The camera maybe not in the Sony Ericsson K810i class but takes
a decent picture. If i had a choice between the Nokia N95, Motorola
RIZR Z8 or the Samsung i would choose the Samsung, it may lack some
of the features of the other two phones but reliability, excellent battery
life more than win me over!

Just got this on upgrade. Absolutely love it! The daft feather touch
buttons are gone and the 1GB memory means you can store plenty of music
and dont need to buy an additional memory card. A few features have
been moved around but very similar to the interface on the D900 (my
previous phone). By the way, the 5 megapixel is fantastic. This phone
got the goods!!!

This phone is brilliant. Exellent camera, loud speakers and still has
long battery life. The camera is a little better than the n95 not much
difference on the phone, but on my computer the quality is loads better.
Worth getting if you like up to date phones and use your phone alot.
