Samsung S400i review

 Review: March 2006  
 

Last updated March 2009

In a nutshell: Slide phone with video camera, Bluetooth™ & i-mode web browser.

 

The Samsung S400i is one of the first of a new generation of phones called i-mode phones. i-mode makes it easy to access the web and use e-mail from a mobile phone. To start i-mode, you press the special "i" button on the phone. You can then access a range of websites that have been specially designed for i-mode and have been optimised for viewing on the phone's display. i-mode sites include many of the most popular websites such as ebay, sports, news and games websites. You can also send and receive email using the i-mode email system, "i-mail". Initially i-mode is available exclusively on O2, and you can get a list of i-mode websites here - the list is suprisingly large even at launch. i-mode is a replacement for WAP and is much, much better. At last, the system that has been in place in Japan for years is now available in the UK! Note that i-mode is not the same as 3G - 3G is faster, but i-mode has the benefit of operating on current 2G networks with better reception and longer battery life.

The Samsung S400i looks very similar to the best-selling Samsung D500, except that it's smaller and lighter. It's a slide-up design phone with a good keypad and a nice screen. However, it doesn't have the features of the D500: there's no MP3 player, no expandable memory, the camera is just VGA resolution (0.3 megapixels), and it can only record short video clips (less than a minute). This makes it expensive for what you get, especially since you have to pay extra for the i-mode service. The Samsung S500i seems like a better deal.

Judging from the user reviews, many people seem to have been mis-sold this phone as a music phone. You need to understand that this phone does not have an MP3 player. However, if you read the user reviews below, some people claim to have imported music files onto the phone and been able to play them.

Samsung S400i features include:

  • VGA camera (640 x 480 pixels) with flash
  • Video camera
  • Display: 262,000 colours
  • 64-voice polyphonic ringtones
  • Messaging: SMS, MMS, E-mail
  • Downloadable Java games
  • Photo phonebook
  • GPRS, EDGE
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth
  • Memory: 13 Mbytes
  • Vibration alert
  • Triband
  • Size: 91 x 45 x 21 mm
  • Weight: 88g
  • Talktime: 3 hours
  • Battery standby: 150 hours

Hello Ive just brought my self this phone as my has gone in for repair , i can not get music or nothing on to this phone some people have been telling and asking me its a mp4 or aac file ...

The problem with the music thing that everyone complains about it is that it's not MP3 compatible. It takes M4A and AAC. However I found it hard at the time to find a converter to get music into these files. So the lack of music ability was my main grudge with this phone. I had it for about a year and a bit (and only changed it about 5 months ago) and found it easy to work with for texting and phoning - I never used internet so didn't care too much about that (although when I recently received free internet, I did try it on my old phone but couldn't get it to load websites). I was mainly disappointed by lack of memory space (and had to keep sorting pictures to make room for more), the shortness of video filming capability, and the music thing. It was my first camera phone so camera was good for me (back then), and the battery life was good (compared to later phones I've had). So all in all, not a bad phone for the times but pales in today's market.

Ive had dis fone 4 2 and half years and wat i find annoying is that you cannot video for long at all. Finally ive learned how to put music in this fone by readin other reviews (use itunes). The Imode is the best feature in dis fone and i think it is a better LOOKIN fone than Samsung d500 and it is slimmer. I really don't mind dat it doesnt have mega pixal camera as the vga camera is very good. I would recomend this fone to 6-12 year olds but not for anyone abov dat age becuase it is rubbish in entertainment. Also i think it was too expensive wen it was sold new becuase i brought it in may 2006 for £99 and found out a monthe later fones with mega pixal camera and mp3 became much cheaper!!! (Samsung k750i for £75)

I like this phone :) I just don't like the fact that it doesn't have an mp3 on it >.< I'm happy with the length of the video recording, cause I don't video much. And just like that tip, don't move the phone around so much, if you want a longer video :) Bluetooth is excellent for me ^_^ The keypad is easy to use :) Love the color. Love the speaker phone too :) Just don't like the 'no mp3' fact or the i-mode >.<

I've had this phone for about 1 year now. Im happy with it. Yes, it may not have an MP3 or videos are short but I don't really care because I have a mp3 (size of the phone screen) But its really easy to use, and as im only 12, I only need it to call people. I record videos and heres a tip - try not to move the phone and it will last longer. The music - it takes certain WMA music files. Bluetooth is fine, happy with it. One bad thing - whats with the I-Mode? Illegal APN? Oh weel, good phone unless you want MP3 on it :)

This phone has disappointed me. I asked for it for Christmas because it had all the things I wanted on it. Sadly, I hadn't really read reviews and seen how bad it is. The videos are so short but I think the camera is fine because you can get lots of effects/timer etc. I don't really use i-mode because you have to pay and I don't really need to be able to access the internet while I'm out. What annoyes me most is that I cannot receive music. It took me an hour to download 3 programs to convert one song into the right file type, to shorten its length and to be able to transfer it onto the phone. The longest it could be is 15 seconds. Also, you can't set voice recordings as your ringtone. I don't recommend you buy this phone if you are buying it for music purposes. Also, it uses an awful lot of battery. I keep mine on at night as I use it for my alarm but still it uses so much. If you think about it, it always flashes and the screen is so bright. When I was playing around I realised you could change the length of your videos by changing the settings from message length to something else. Sadly, I could not change it as it would not let me =(

Light, compact with good video and photo capability. easy to use, easy follow logical menu layout. Calculator takes a litlle getting used to. paint finish on bac and battery isn't great for wear and tear. Battery life is great on stanby, eats it if used a lot though. replacement parts are hard to get too, not as easy as a certain express on manufacturer. Only one thing I hate... slider drops calls if you slide it the slightest bit (e.g. removing it from your pocket... result, you end up calling back the person who's call you dropped. Slider is too sensitive... with re-design, this could be overcome, such that you could open/close the slide more than half way without affecting the incoming call.

I dont like the S400i I only wish I had known before buying it that I couldnt exchange certain files via bluetooth and unable to have true ring tones on it. Really dissapointed and out of pocket over £150 for a moderate phone.

i really badly dislike this phone i have had it for 12 months and hated every seond of it. it looks very good slim small and stylish but the i-mode is pointless,and the point of changing the settings of memory so u have more is stupid as u cannot get music and you can only get a video for about 30 secdonds! this phone has made me HATE samsung for life and i will never buy another samsung because of this phone.plus none of the features are that good at all! dont buy this phone!

iv got the samsung S400i and im not impressed. it should have been stressed that it is does not have an MP3 player. if the D500(which i have had) and D900 can have MP3 players why would this one not? for the price i paid i am not happy. this is the only problem that i have had from O2. not good at all

i think the phone itself is brilliant but the imode is absolute garbage you have to register and pay monthly even for 1 game i think it is pathetic so just for that fact i give the phone 3 stars (it would 5 but the imode is rubbish)

I bought this phone because i thought it looked stylish, had bluetooth and was told it would play music files however i can't whats the point of having a music file when you can't put anything in it, you can't even buy songs off the samsung website.I think it's annoying how the camera stops recording if it feels like it, however this is better than no camera at all like my last phone. Also my last samsung phone had internet and you could download ringtones and games as you pleased now i have i-mode everything seems to be subscription based and if you type websites into the URL box most pages are 'too big' and get cancelled. if you want a phone that plays music don't bother with this phone!

This phone is very poor, the camera quality is apporling and as the phone doesnt have an mp3 player, it makes the phone extremely dull.
