Samsung U600 review

 Review: April 2007  
 

Rating:

In a nutshell: The Samsung U600 is the thinnest slide phone in the world, yet it has every popular feature - including a 3.2 megapixel camera and an MP3 player.

 

The Samsung U600 is the first of the second-generation Ultra phones to hit the shops and is the replacement for the enormously popular Samsung D900 ultra-slim slide phone. At just 10.9 mm it's even thinner than the D900, making it the slimmest slide phone available (now beaten by the Samsung E840!). As well as making it thinner, Samsung have shaved a couple of millimetres off the width of the phone, which is a very welcome improvement, as flat wide phones are not as ergonomic to use as conventionally-sized phones. It's also 10g lighter than the D900, making it an extremely lightweight phone indeed. You can hardly feel the presence of this phone in a jacket pocket! A visual makeover serves to differentiate the U600 from the D900 in the looks department. One important change is that the external buttons (the ones that you can see when the slide is closed) have been made into touch-sensitive buttons (like the Samsung E900). Touch sensitive buttons look cool, but are not to everyone's taste - read our user reviews of the Samsung E900 for a flavour of these! We feel that Samsung have made a mistake here and the touch-sensitive buttons will alienate a certain percentage of users. If you don't want to take the risk then stick with the D900 or choose the newer Samsung G600, which are very safe choices.

Inside the phone, not a lot has changed - at least from a user's perspective. The camera has been uprated from 3.0 to 3.2 megapixels. The battery is less powerful than the D900's, but Samsung claim that battery performance has actually been improved due to a new technology called OPUS (Optimized Power Usage Solution). In our experience, the battery life is only 2-3 days. User memory has been reduced slightly from 70 Mbytes to 60 Mbytes.

The camera is excellent - Samsung's best yet - with a high-resolution 3.2 megapixel resolution, LED flash, autofocus and digital zoom. It doesn't match the Sony Ericsson K800i or the Nokia N95, but it's still one of the best cameras on a phone. Our only complaint about the camera is its slowness in taking a picture - a delay of one or two seconds means that fast moving subjects are hard to photograph. There's also a good quality video camera. The display is high resolution (240 x 320 pixels) with 262,144 colours and is excellent. The music player supports a wide range of formats - MP3, ACC, ACC+ and e-AAC+ - and has very good sound reproduction. You can use the stereo headset supplied by Samsung or a wireless Bluetooth headset. You can also listen to music through the built-in loudspeaker which features a Bang & Olufsen digital power amplifier. The player is easy to use with playlists of up to 30 tracks. With 60 Mbytes of user memory, you can only store around 15 music tracks, so to use your U600 as a music player, you'll need to buy a Micro SD card - a 512 Mbyte card costs around £15 and will enable you to store over 100 tracks. The largest memory card possible is a 2 Gbyte card, with storage for around 500 songs. A PC data link kit is included in the sales package, for transferring music from a PC.

Other features that we like include the messaging options, with support for email attachments and a document viewer for viewing (but not editing) MS Office, PDF and HTML files. We like the EDGE connection for fast downloads, the quad band operating frequency, wireless photo printing with PicBridge™-compatible printers and the TV-Out connector for viewing your photos and videos directly on a TV.

Most of all, the U600 works as a lightweight, ultra-slim, look-at-me, sexy-slider kind of phone. It's got the 3 megapixel camera and the music player to back up the looks too. The phone isn't as user friendly as it could have been without the touch-sensitive buttons, so we've decided not to award the full 5 stars for the U600. A genuine 5 star phone is the G600, which is the replacement for the U600 and has a 5 megapixel camera and no touch-sensitive buttons.

Demand for the U600 has been sky high since launch, and this has driven prices down. You can probably find the best bargain by starting a new contract rather than upgrading on your existing contract (it's easy to port your phone number to a new network). The U600 is now available on Pay as you Go too.

The new Samsung U600 Vibe (or Samsung U600i) is the same as the U600 but features "haptics", i.e. a vibrational feedback when you press the touch-sensitive buttons.

Samsung U600 features include:

  • 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, flash and 4x digital zoom
  • Video camera (MPEG4 format)
  • Display: TFT, 262,144 colours, 240 x 320 pixels
  • Music player (MP3, ACC, ACC+, e-AAC+ formats) with digital power amp
  • 64-voice polyphonic ringtones / MP3 ringtones
  • Voice memo recorder
  • Integrated handsfree speakerphone
  • Messaging: SMS, MMS, email (POP3, SMTP, IMAP4, SSL, TLS)
  • T9 predictive text
  • Document viewer for MS Office, PDF and HTML files
  • Mobile printing via Bluetooth (PicBridge™)
  • Java games
  • Flight mode
  • Personal organiser functions
  • Memory: 60 Mbytes plus MicroSD memory card slot (expandable to 2 Gbytes)
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth 2.0, USB 2.0, TV-Out
  • WAP 2.0, GPRS Class 10, EDGE
  • Quad band
  • Size: 103 x 49 x 11 mm
  • Weight: 81g
  • Talktime: 4 hours
  • Battery standby: 270 hours

Overall, the phone works ok. My end call (red) button doesn't work however, and like many others have said the touch screen buttons are more of a pain than anything else. Recently, my screen started going different colours, and completely black etc. turning the phone off and on worked for a while but now I can't turn it on without it happening. I've had it for around 3 years now, and it's just broke.

Well I've had this phone for 2 years+ now and as I've rarely use it haven't had too many problems with it until now. This week I had to use text a lot (to someone in hospital; they allow them to use mobiles now). Not having used text a lot I quickly brushed up on my skills, and found a few problems. At first I thought it must be me, sometimes the text keypad would freeze and no key presses worked (pressing the 'i' key cleared that). Sometimes I'd press the space key and a strange menu would pop up (not characters, an option to do odd things). And sometimes the screen would go black in the middle of texting (cured by pressing 'i'). Apparently lots of people have these problems; it's not my clumsy fingers at all. And if you catch the 'back' key you have real problems, you can lose everything you've typed unless you save it as a Draft, then work though the menu system to restore it. You have the same problem if you don't add the recipient before you start typing; has to be saved as a draft, restored and then recipient added through the menu system. Good points... Camera is good although there's no instructions in the 'Useless Manual' I had to write a 'camera instruction manual' for the Samsung forum to help others (probably still on there somewhere). I have never had a phone or any other piece of equipment where the manual was so utterly useless! Their excuse... "play with it and find out". Not recommended; especially a second hand one; as reliability decreases with age. Samsung? Never again!

I just got this phone and was quite impressed. The only problem in the U600 is its touch sensitive keys. They can be annoying sometimes. Apart from that i found it is an amazing mobile. It is slim, has a pretty good camera quality and it's good for a first phone choice since it is easy for anybody to use

I've had this phone for a little over 2 years. It was the best phone I've ever had until about 2 weeks ago. Now the sound has completley stopped working so I can't hear any calls, texts or music. The display has started acting up as well, sometimes the screen is split into about 10 lines, but this only lasts a few seconds. Since the sound isn't working it's really a gonner. As far as I know the warrenty has expired as well- perfect timing samsung. I really don't want to get a new one since this was great up until very recently. I would reccommend it if you change phones every 2 years, but if you want something that will last longer than that, don't go for it.

I've had this phone since my birthday (7 months) And its good feature wise, but these are the really bad problems I've experienced: - The camera takes ages - the touch buttons are really annoying - it rings people by accident - if you hold down the erase button for 2seconds while texting, it deletes the whole text - it cracks easily when you drop it - it has really low battery life - the flaps for the adapters/memory card, are really weak - when you slide it up, the top wiggles a lot - its generally RUBBISH. - the design is okay, but it could be better Personal Problems: The speaker broke, so i can hear people when they ring me, but they cant hear me :| + the phone echo's when you talk to people :/ SERIOUSLY THOUGH; DON'T BUY IT. Hope This Saves You The Pain/ MoneyLoss Of This Stupid Phone. P.s...iRate It 1/5.

CONFUSED? JUST READ THIS REVIEW - I've had the U600 for 2 yrs. I wasn't sure whether to but or not as some reviews said its good, some said its bad - what do you do? So I got one because it looked good and was slim. OK at first but eventually turned out to be a big mistake. First Samsung have never provided a proper user manual/instructions, so you're on your own. The camera is NOT good, what is the point of 3.2Mpix when the pics actually capured don't match what you see on your screen - they're overexposed. Of course there is no instuctions how to use the camera. And the shutter delay is so unbelieveably long I have 'missed the moment' on many, many occasions. I use a separate digital camera now. The date info is not saved on messages you send which can be very annoying. 6 months ago it stopped vibrating when something was received. Then it started seizing up meaning battery removal, but now the whole thing has permanently seized because the touch buttons don't wor k and you can't get beyond the password screen even if you remove the battery. Also the screen visibility is very very poor in sunny conditions and the phone scratches very easily. After 2 yrs of use i judge THIS PHONE IS TOTAL RUBBISH and almost unsupported by Samsung - DO NOT BUY - U HAVE BEEN WARNED!

I waited a long time to finally decide on buying this phone; oh dear, what a mistake was that! It certainly looked the part - sleek, smart, with black and gold detail ... What a shame the product didn't stand up to its appearance. I only had to switch the stupid thing on and, before I knew it, my landline number had been called! It jumped about all over the place! It went into text mode all of its own accord and, as for the camera ... Well, unless you have 10mins spare to fidget around with the rather confusing menu, your subject will have been long gone! The video camera is about average but most stuff comes out too dark. The sound, on video playback, is dreadful and cheap ... All in all, I'm getting shot of this device ASAP. Arrrrrggggghhhhh!!!

The phone looks good but the quality and functionality is very poor indeed. I have had my phone for 18 months and could not get warranty coverage even though I had a charge slip. The company said I needed the original invoice. Try copying info from one contact to another; I could not do it. The quality of speakers is horrible. The software to manage the phone is far inferior to any other phone I have ever used, and this is the only phone that broke down on me. To top it off the company would not repair it even though it was under guarantee. I would never buy another Samsung phone ever again.

Now after 12 months it's going wrong again. When I touch any of the buttons the screen goes dark and sometimes the picture goes off altogether and I have to turn the phone off and back on again. Unfortunatly nothing can be done about it now as the warranty has expired!

The touch buttons are brilliant, great for anyone to use, as they are easy to use, and if they are too sensitive you can just turn the sensitivity down! The texting is very well set out, easy to use. Overall I think that this is a good phone, but samsung could have done better. A must have phone if you cannot decide between a touch screen or not! Thank you for taking your time to read.

However it is a great phone once you are used to it. You can edit photos, record videos etc I lovethe phone, but when I dropped it once it strated flashing when turning on, writing a message and viewing music videos and photos. So a bit disappointing.

I got the Samsung U600 (pink) about 10 months ago and I think it's a really good phone. People say the touch sensitive buttons are a pain, but it doesn't bother me that much. Some of the downsides are: * calling people accidently * the music player is really slow * the predictive text dictionary deletes all your words so you have to input them all the time * The camera's delay is too long and the shutter speed is really slow, so everything blurs most of the time Good things are: *The internet connection is really fast * It's so slim * It feels quite sturdy * 10 months and no major problems * Sound quality of the music player with the headphones is so good * The touch sensitive buttons make it really quick and easy to navigate I am going to upgrade to the Tmobile Pulse, not because I hate the Samsung, I think it's amazing, its just that it's not very flashy and with touch screen phones becoming really popular, it feels dated and unsatisfying to use. I'd give it 4 and a half out of 5 though :)

Worst phone Ive ever had, Ive had 2 Samsung phones previously and I loved them but this one has a mind of its own, looks good and the camera is good but texting is a nightmare, it jumps around the menus at will and if you are trying to text dont sneeze or it will send. Far too sensative, its been back to Samsung twice in the 1st 2 months, the battery needs charging daily, my honest rating of this phone is 3 out of 10.

After only 18months the screen went black. It can revive but decides to black out just when I need it. Quite complicated to text as well. Not recommended. my previous 900 is still working.

Amazin gphone. Had it for 4 months now and still find no problem with it. Very good if you want chick or just something that doesnt look out of place. Brilliant camera quality and even comes with games (: For those people dissing it about battery life (expecially if you've got the U600i) is to turn off the vibration feedback (which cna be found in the phone seting area) and charge it regularly! Overall higly recommended.

ok phone. had better. batery life is rubbish! its easy to use but can malfunction after a while so you hae to take it to get it repaired. Pictures take ages to take.. Can call people by accident if you dont lock it and its in your pocket.But there are good points... easy to work out, good camera slim nice design only works on 1 network

It was okay but the battery life was pretty rubbish, and a few months after I got it, the speakers broke, so even on vibration I couldn't tell when I was getting a call. The screen blacked out shortly after the speakers went, and now the thing refuses to turn off unless it's out of battery.

overall the phone is pretty good , the touch pad is a little slow at times and can be abit over sensitive, the games on it are good , and it is great for texting , the sound quality is outstanding and it has a great music player , also the radio is very good and it gets a good signal. however i have only had this phone for over 3 months and a while ago the screen stared going fuzzy at times and went discolored , i took it to the shop and they said it needed to be sent for a repair. but when i got home the phone had stopped doing it so i just carried on using it as normal , until the screen totalyy blanked out everything still worked on it as it was still playing the radio but there was no picture , i have talked to someone else about it who had the phone and they said theres did the same , i would recomend getting this phone but you cant be sure it wont do the same .

I love this phone. The touch buttons are easy to use. Sometimes I do end up calling someone by mistake though. The camera quality is good, it takes a while to actually take the picture though but you get used to that. I've had this phone for a year and a half and lately it has started to freeze ever so often. Overall, its very easy to use and i would recommend it.

Brilliant phone, I have it for a year and unfortuately having to upgrade now, but it has been a very good phone, it took a few weeks getting used to it (kept on phoning people by accident!) But that soon stopped and after a year I still don't want to let it go! But contracts up and I get a nice new free one!! Easy to text, easy to use, great sound, pictures are ok, but photos are so important I would'nt take any on my phone you need a good 'all singing all dancing' camera for taking pics!! You won't be disapointed with this phone! And I would definately say if you would!!, Brilliant phone!

Could be the slowest phone I ever had. Is this a hardware or software problem? Just bought the phone and accessing photos and other files takes a lot of time. Using the pdf reader, it takes several seconds to go to the next page. Plus, figures in the file cannot be viewed. Also, you are not allowed to view the photos while playing music.

This is an amazing phone. The choice of colours are fantastic, and the pictures taken on the 3.2 MP camera are sharp and clear. If you want a phone with a good camera, great games that is affordable and comes in an large range of colours, the samsung U600 is right for you. However, the touch pad keys do need a bit of getting used to. Once you have used to phone a couple of times, the keya re easy to use. The U600 is brilliant, and I think it is really worth the 88 is costs on Pay As You Go.

The phone is pretty dire. It's good if you want to text and ring people but if you want anything more than don't buy this phone. The camera takes forever to take a photo, the memory can only hold 500-600 texts so you have to delete the texts daily. The battery life is very poor, I seem to have to recharge my phone everyday. It does however look nice but is very outdated today

I cant accept texts ot use the camera. the screen flickers non stop which makes me feel slightly dizzy. Before it went wrong though, I loved this phone. It was really easy to use and very nice looking. however i wouldnt recommend this phone, if you want something long lasting, dependable as it's NOT! Was about 4 starts when i first had it. now its barely 1

The U600 is a good phone,mp3 is good,camera is good and the battery life is alright.The touch scrren is annoying when it is in my pocket it call people accidently which wastes alot of credit. I have recently had to tke my phone back as a crack has appeared on th screen and i dont know how and it look like it has happened underneath the screen. As a lot of people had the phone i thought it would be really good.When you are scrowling down a long list of songs,half way through it freezes which is annoying. The slidey bit of the phone has become very loose and it is like on its last legs.Some of my friends have this phone and it is the same with theres. I would only recommend it to people that dont use there phone alot.alright phone but after awhile got annoyed,now going to get the LG KS360 in pink hopefully better,reviews on that phone sound really good.

I have had this phone for a year, and I really really love it. Although there are quite a few problems: The screen is very very delicate - everyone that I know with this phone (5 people) have got at least one crack in it. Obviously the touch buttons were hard to get on with at first and I did end up calling a few people by accident - but you get used to it after a while and it's fine. Also, the worst thing is about two weeks ago, I found that I was unable to hear what people who called were saying - although they could hear me. Other than that, I think the camera is pretty good, the games are quite fun, I love the look, feel and slimness of it. I really am quite sad to have to let it go as it was a brilliant phone (obviously up until I stopped being able to hear people lol) I would reccomend it, I don't think the speaker breaks on all of them - i'm the only one I know that this has happened to. it is also quite cheap at the moment and you can get it in a whole variety of colours- mines dark blue, and I kinda wish I could have got it in pink now : / lol. So, I would reccomend it. In general, it's a great great phone.

A good stylish phone, but the only problem is that its very delicate. It could break very easily. The other thing is the touch sensitivity buttons, it could take a few weeks for you to get used to it. But overall the phone is good with a decent 3mp camera, a music player and other good features to it.
