Samsung X460 review
| ||Review: February 2005
In a nutshell: A tiny dual-display clamshell phone with excellent features, but no camera.
The Samsung X460 is an updated version of the X450, which itself replaced the older A800. The X460 weighs just 75g, just a few grams more than the tiny A800, and is certainly one of the lightest phones available. The X460 is an attractively-styled silver clamshell with an internal aerial and a dual display.
The X450 features a UFB (Ultra fine and bright) internal LCD screen with 65,000 colours, which offers a bright vivid display for the phone's menu. It's a good screen, but not quite in the same league as the TFT displays on more expensive models. Still it's better than the STN screens offered by similar phone in this price range and it's a good size too with a resolution of 128 x 160 pixels.
Other notable features are the 40-voice polyphonic ringtones and Java™ games.
The lack of an outer display was the main problem with the old X450 and this has been fixed with the X460.
Samsung X460 features include:
- Main internal display: UFB, 128 x 160 pixels, 65,536 colours
- External display: STN black & white, 96 x 64 pixels
- 40-voice polyphonic ringtones
- Messaging : SMS (with T9 predictive text), EMS, MMS
- Games: 2 embedded Java™ games (Snowball Fight & BubbleSmile) plus space for downloads
- Wallpaper & screensaver
- Scheduler, calendar, to do list, world time, alarm (daily/once/weekly), currency converter, calculator, memo book
- Phonebook (1000 entries)
- Vibration alert
- Memory: 8 Mbytes
- WAP 2.0, GPRS class 10
- Dual band
- Size: 85 x 43 x 23 mm
- Weight: 75g
- Talktime: 3.5 hours
- Battery standby: up to 230 hours

I love this phone - it's simple, it's good, it doesn't do magic tricks
and that's why I love it. Mine had trouble with the charger though -
either the charger broke or the connection between the phone and charger
was not recognised. I couldn't find a replacement charger cheap enough
so my lovely phone is in a box at the back of my cupboard and I'm back
to a nokia 3310, which was in that box my phone is now in.

Most basic phone considerately supplied without any extras. Small,light.
Put it in your pocket with keys, screws, sand or penknife without worry.
Drop it, throw it at the cat, use it as an emergency plumb bob or door

All you need. Great.

I've had this phone for almost 2 years now. It worked for me without

Numbers to sim card. You can only copy them one by one. On the other
hand you can copy all phone #'s from sim card to phone memory. Why?

This phone is total and utmost junk; you have to turn off T9 every time
you want to send an SMS, the interface when typing is extremely sluggish
compared to ancient phones like a Nokia 3310 or any other Samsung model.
There's no option to have it ring and vibrate at the same time, what's
up with that? The default ringtones and smstones are extremely bad,
there's not a single one that's worth using. When you do decide to use
one it doesn't play it nearly loud enough, I never hear it. Please,
folks, whatever you do, stay away from this phone as much as you can,
I wish I had.

Horrible phone. Regret buying it. After a few days keypad locks can't

Simply terrible! i havent even had this phone for 1 year and the amount
of problems are endless. Firstly it randomly selects names from my phonebook
and replaces them with ppl who are actually callin me so i never really
know who is calling. secondly, whenever i write msgs it jams, my space
button doesnt work so if yr a fast typer you just get a load of jibberish.
i usually end up re typing a msg about 5 times. it often just turns
off while i'm typing a msg too. sometimes it chargers by itself in the
middle of the night.. without me actually plugging it in.. but then
turns off when i do actually plug it into the charger. the screen is
terrible.. my advice dont waste yr money.. you'll have to buy a new
one soon anyways!

The X640 is a good phone. It is deffinetly a phone which i would reccomened
in confidence. I am not going to brag on, so i will give you my summerisation
you should think of before considering buying the phone: * Its is a
great phone if you are not throughly interested in downloading, bluetooth
and all the hightech things. * Its a great phone if you want to show
people that you have a coloured phone and can recieve mms and things,
but not go into downloading and stuff. So if these points appeal to
you give it a go, its actually not that bad!

a bit of a black brick to be honest, ugly. I like my little X460, a
bit battered and scratched now, but lovely.

I got this phone bought me as a present. Its very good if you dont want
a camera/video phone and you just want something simple and stylish.
It has a small and cute exterior, also has wap and internet connection.
Its simple and easy to use. Ive had it for 5 months and it still works!
Down sides that ive found - you cant send other people downloaded pictures
off the internet via multimedia messages. They always say their too
big. You cant send ring tones that you've downloaded either. There is
also no inferred and no blue tooth. Sometimes - especially if your a
fast texter, the screen can freeze and so does the keypad, then it switches
itself off and turns back on again. This has happened to me quite a
few times. The battery dies very quickly, even if you have charged it
for 8+ hours, it can go down within the same day. Over all its a neat
simple phone. But if you want something flashy then i wouldnt reccomend

but one thing that i would like to request you to enhance s to install
an fm radio station so that i can be listening. also if it's possible
to inbuild a camera facility on this type of phone. also the microphones
are somehow inefficient coz every time i try to minimise so that people
could not hear what what am saying, you find that the phone produces
another voice whinc is not audible enough for the caller to hear. thanx
for this opprtunity and i hope that you will be able to work on those
suggestions if it is poissible. htank you oncer more. your faithfully

Love it.. it fits well in my hand! Love the big keypad. highly user
friendly and in a compact stylish design. It has no camera facility,
but I don't need one as I have a digital camera that takes better photos
anyway. (and so the price is relatively cheaper for that reason!) It's
quite durable, I've "accidentally" dropped it many times and apart from
scratches, the rest is protected. Organising my phonebook was a breeze
when I got a USB data cable for this phone that connected to my PC.
SMSing has also been very quick! The battery lasts 3 days when I use
the phone occasionally before recharging, so it's great. The only thing
I don't like about it is the really weird default ringtones probrably
composed by some guy on drugs. But that is easily fixed by getting a
ringtone off the net! It's great value for what I paid for it! So thumbs
up from me :)

This phone is an ok phone... There are a few problems with it though...
First of all, the screen is very bad quality. Its about as good as that
of a nokia 3510i. Second of all texting can get quite fiddly as you
have to go into the menu to insert some symbols into texts. One thing
that really annoyed me was the ring tone quality. I downloaded some
because the ones on the phone are AWFUL! The quality of the downloaded
tones comes out terrible on this phone. There is loud clicking noises
in the background that drown out the tone. Ive had my X460 for 6months
and yesterday it broke on me. Ive been having a few issues with it prior
to this point (such as the outer screen light staying on all the time
even though it hadnt been set to do so and hence the battery went down
in about an hour). If you can find this phone for £50 or less then I
would advise it, if not then your wasting your money as there are much
better mid range phones on the market. I was dissapointed with this
offeri ng from samsung... My sister has had an E600 for about 8 months

In fact I bought it for its looks and I am happy with it in that respect. A few drawbacks, though: - with each contact you can associate a separate ringtone. BUT only from the set of standard ringtones and not from the ones that you downloaded to the phone. Very disappointing! Same with pictures. Samsung, what about a firmware upgrade? - battery life is not exactly excellent - alarms do not work with phone switched off, so when you go to sleep and set your alarm, leave the phone on. Stupid. - user manual does not mention that you can connect your phone to the PC with a separate cable. At least I have not found it, so it may still be hidden somewhere? Not really a problem, but very strange. Good points: - looks/weight - acceptable price - quality of screen - quality of keys

I've had this phone for a few months now and I must say it's pretty

but the ringtones included are just awful. Has no camera but does have
a lot of the other usual nonsense mobiles have these days. As will other
Samsung phones it will not let you send certain images with MMS, a limitation
in the copy protection firmware, I believe. All in all - cheap but average!!

view "own number" keypad not as robust. also, you cannot even *receive*

You can even take pictures with the flip closed even though there's
no external screen which is the only downside to it but for the price
i'm not complaining. If anyone's looking for a simple and yet feature

just got the X460 it out of the box. first impression: the shape feels
like an egg in your hand, very sleek, maybe even "too" small? samsung
build quality is evident though does not feel quite as robust as the
X450 (keypad, for instance feels weaker). menu more or less same. (mine
came in german default language... huh?). good clear screen. why only
3 stars? because although advertised as having an email function, it
does not. this was my main reason for considering it, otherwise it does
not seem to be much of an improvement over the X450 (esp as I'm not
fussed about camera or external display).

hear, but no one else can so it doesnt spoil the tone that much and
also the selection of wallpapers which comes with the phone are simply
awful. This was a bargin for me at £59.99 on virgin mobile (which
I would highly recomend as a network by the way!) and I could have apid
a lot more for a phone which was much worse. ok, so it doesnt have a
camera but if u r looking for a clolour screen, light weight, slim and
sexy phone then I would totally advise the X460!

What is wrong with most of the people reviwing this phone. If you wanted
a phone with a camera and radio, why buy one without and then complain
it does not have them? This is a phone for people who just want a phone,
not some stupid poor quality plastic lensed gadget. Anyway, the phone
is very good, reception, size, weight, keypad, display are all excellent.
Ringtones awful, but managed to download a standard ringtone from samsung
site which is OK. Only fault is seems to be no way of disabling the
tones for deleting messages etc.

This is a very small phone with really good looks. It fits nicely in
the palm of the hand. The colour screen is nice, bright and clear. It
does not come with a camera but who cares. The only niggly point I have
with this phone are the ringtones. They are some of the worst I have
heard. But when a phone looks this good you live with it. I would recommend
this phone. For £60 from virgin and with £15 credit it is
a bargain. Buy it.

it.Overall a kool & stylish phone.I would give it 9/10.

I got this phone for my birthday and I LOVE IT!!! The internal screen
is amazing and it was not too exspensive. I am glad that choose this
phone instead of the x450 that little but more in price but a better
phone by far. I highly recomend it and it is sooooo light that you would
hardly know that it was in your pocket. Buy it.

I fell for the good looks of this phone but I found many bugs :-( 1.
the USSD function doesn't work.Samsung confirmed this is a bug! 2.The
side key reject doesn't work.I have ensured Side key is set to "reject"
and not "silent" in Phone settings. 3.No option to set default mode
for SMS - I prefer ABC mode by default,but it is T9. 4.Once u compose
message and click Send option,you can't go back and edit message at
this stage.Message is not automatically saved either :( I'm planning
to sell this off ! :(

and the internet. No-one stocks them. Any ideas????!

I really like it because it's little and shiny! It has a lot of cool

they have already one. I'm happy with my new phone!

Excellent phone. It has a great clamshell design and good features but
its advantage over other phones i think it is the display. The only
thing it lacks it's a camera.

This phone is cool - it's an older version of the newly anticipated
Samsung e330. There are many cool features...for example, calendar,
stopwatch, clock, memory book, games, Interactive gaming, picture messaging,
colour screen, 30 polyphonic ringtones (plus downloadable ones) and
Samsung music player. It's definitely worth a buy. You can buy it from
VIRGIN Mobile for £99.00
