Samsung X600 review
| ||Review: August 2004
In a nutshell: A candy bar design phone with digital camera.
The X600 includes most of the features that you would expect from the current Samsung generation: VGA camera, 65,000 colour screen, polyphonic ringtones, Java games and multimedia messaging. What's different about the X600 is its shape: a straight design, not a flip or slide opening design. Presumably Samsung aims to appeal to as wide a market as possible, but it has to be said that the external aerial looks rather old-fashioned in this style of phone. However, it's a super-lightweight phone and that does make up for the ugly aerial. The phone also benefits from a camera flash, making it possible to take photos after dark.
Problems with this phone are the lack of a data cable for transferring photos to a PC, plus the small size of the display. There are also reliability problems with this phone, which is unusual for a Samsung - the main problem seems to be random freezing or shutting down of the phone. This phone cannot be recommended.
Samsung X600 features include:
- 65,000 UFB display (128 x 128 pixels)
- VGA camera (640 x 480 pixels) with digital zoom, photo effects, multishot function (up to 15 pics) and flashlight
- 40-voice polyphonic ringtones
- Java games
- Wallpaper & Screensaver
- Messaging: MMS, EMS, SMS (with learning T9)
- Data transfer: fax
- Memory: 9 Mbytes
- WAP 2.0, GPRS
- Dual Band (900/1800 Mhz)
- Size: 102 x 43 x 20 mm
- Weight: 80g
- Talktime: up to 3.5 hours
- Battery standby: up to 250 hours

i've had this phone for about 4 years now, and apart from a broken camera (because i kept rolling it with my thumb) i've had no other issues with it. I managed to get a third party usb connection cable for it too. Out of all my mobiles, the x600 has lasted the longest. I've also dropped it almost everyday, and have thrown it at walls, and stepped on it and it still works fine. Actually quite a hardy phone, does the job. it'll do for another 5 years, hehe. p.s. i've never had it freeze, i don't know what everyone is going on about, it's never happened to me not once!

I have a Motorola SLVR L7 and I can honestly say it's not the best phone ever but it sure is a much better phone then the Samsung X600... ALtho the phones ages differ allot he specs arent that different with Motorola lacking being, still having a VGA Camera in Megapixel world :) I had to send in my Moto to get repaired, took a drop and speaker broke or something. So I borrowed the Samsung X600 from a friend... The phone itself looks nice, aerial doesnt bother me, feels good BUT... The biggest problem is the phone freezes, restarts for no reason.... The phone is unreliable!!! Also the keys are to small for my liking... I dont think Ill ever get a samsung because of jsut this phone... how can a company release a phone with such a huge flaw in it's software? NIce idea (I like bar phones) but software lets it down...

Although (when the phone stays on) the camera is great and takes brilliant pictures - but i find it really hard to send the pictures especially via infa-red. I would like the pictures on my computer but cant send them this way - HOW DO YOU DO IT?

I had this phone not too long ago and loved the quality and zooming
capabilities of it along with the amazingly bright flashlight that was
no match for the sony ericsson k700i. But, the external aerial is ugly
and uncool, getting in the way all the time and causing the phone to
keep shutting down when you use it, so all in all if you are anything
like me you will like this phone for a couple of months if you do not
want much from one until you get so annoyed with it you will put it
on a concrete floor and mash it until it is no more! (buy the samsung
e350 or d500!!!!)

Reviewed by AMLagonda from Australia on 29th Aug
Itís a shame, I had this phone for 10 months (even wrote a great
review here) now it lays dead, unusable, even though Iíve kept
it in like new condition. It seems that every time it uses the aerial,
the power it draws shuts it down and the phone resets over and over
till you remove the battery, must have very weak circuitry. So every
time somebody calls, I make a call or message it just resets itself.
It is still my favorite phone as now I have a second hand Nokia 6610i
(cant afford a SE K750) and thereís just no comparison the X600
is faster and better in every way I even have a Motorola E365 which
just doesnít feel right cause the software is not user friendly
compared to the x600. I even got the Data cable for it and it really
does take excellent photos for a cheap phone, itís a pity I couldnít
add games to it as the built in ones were very bad. Oh well may the
Samsung X600 R.I.P. as youíll find that this particular phone
is not even on Samsungs web site any more, looks like they have written
it off as well.

so sum1 must of liked it. i was impressed with it wen i got it. it only

bad thing about the fone tho is that white dots appeared on the screen
afta bout 5 months, they looked like a smudge but it was on the inside
and this affected the picture quality wen u took a picture. another
bad thing was tha it didnt have bluetooth or infared and the internet
was rubbish. it was a good fone last year and the rotatin camera looked
really good but i wouldnt reccomend it 2 any1 now cos fones wit blutooth
and video cameras r the best an ya cud get the 4 bout 120 pds wereas

This phone is simply an abuse. I bought it for PK Rs 12,000 and it was the biggest mistake of my life. No need to talk about the features as it is unreliable and hangs quite often. And see the extence, when I tried to claim the warranty from United Mobiles, I got nothing but rubbish. The dealer is well aware of the manufacturing fault of this mobile and seems to have been told to use delaying tactics and pay no attention to the 'fooled' people. I would suggest not buy this mobile at all rather not to buy any Samsung mobile as they, all, are to fool us.

u get this one because the camera is superb for a phone. i paid £180

for starters my daugher has thrown it in a hot bath, its been in a boiling
hot cup of tea! over night on a towel on a radiator and it was working
fine both times! i wouldnt recommend it throwing it in a bath however!!lol.
u can pick these up so cheap on ebay now 2. the only bad point id say
is that i haven't got a cable for tranfering pictures but apparenly
u can buy them for a fiver on ebay. I'm upgrading to a Samsung E530

Okay, I bought this phone a year ago and I loved it cause of the camera
and the vivid display but...afterwards it turned out it wasn't that
good, or at least mine is very dim. I persuaded a friend of mine to
get one too, and the thing is that now they crash during calls, or I
just end up without a phone cause it won't turn on and loses network.
I don't get my SMS immediately but after like 6 hours or so :( Another
drawback is the DRM, which doesn't allow you to send any content you've
downloaded via WAP and the lack of photo ID. Overall, like already said,
it woulda been great if it just worked...But since it doesn't here in
Bulgaria you can get a SE K500i for the same amount of money, less than
$150 and it would be a better choice

I bought this phone in May 2004, and it worked really well to start
off with, did everything I needed, and if anybody would have asked i
would have recommended it to buy, and the camera was really good too.
However it was only in August when I started to experience problems.
First the camera stopped working altogether. I took it back to the shop
and they repaired it. At the moment in time the camera is broken again:
says "preview error" even when I turn it on! Half way through a call
it will just cut off, stating "call failed" even when I have full signal.
SMS's will only send when they feel like it. I am on the same network
as another member of my house and they have no trouble, however my boyfriend
has a samsung phone and he is experiencing the same troubles, so maybe
it's samsung altogether. getting a new phone on saturday, and it wont

I have a very strange problem with this particular handset. Ever since
i've got this phone i've been charged a lot of money for downloading
stuff from my service providers site! I've complained many many times
but everytime my wap provider has proof for the downloads taking place.
My provider has informed me that maybe my browser is faulty and its
making connections on its own!!! I'm not sure where excatly the fault
is but the bottom line i've had to pay money for using this handset....

Before buying this phone in april 2004 i thought it would be so good
and when i first got it it was outstanding in quality however a couple
of months later the camera was borken and everytime i tried to take
a picture it wouldnt let me and the picture would go green and blury
and i had no idea why, as it was on guarentee i thought i would take
it back to the shop so it could be repaired they said they were sorry
for the inconveineince and that they would fix it. 2 weeks later they
fixed it and it worked good for the next couple of weeks or maybe a
month but after that my phone would randomly truen itself of or restart
itself or reset r the settings and sometimes if someone rang me my ringtone
would play all wrong and go relly high and wierd, so i went back to
th o2 shop and they fixed my fone the day after i got it back it was
broken even more, so i took it back andthey tried to fix it but they
couldnt so they gave me a knew phone but the same model, however this
one still re sets the settings on its own and sometimes half of the
screen will just go off and do strange wierd things. So overall i think
its a gisgrace to the Samsung name and i dont recommend it to anyone
so if you are looking for a knew phone look elsewhere then the samsung

The set is very good, nice tones, nice signals and camera, but slight
disappointment with transferring pics to PC. Could someone tell me whether
PC cable does work????? and could someone email me a pic taken by X600???

I had this phone for 4 weeks and until then it worked fine i loved it
but then it kept knocking itself off and freezing on me. This isn't
good as i need my phone allot. I had it sent off and they replaced most
of the parts in the phone and so far its working fine again. But this
has happened to a number of people and so isn't very reliable!!!

Samsung X600 is very good phone with camera. having high zoom capacity. but one thing is missing that is viedo capturing, and photo display on incomming alert. Pls make sure that it will be available in next comming version.Orelse give updates for the software used in the X600 version. Thanks Prakash.

At first i loved this little stylish phone. I got it when it first came
out and it was my first camera phone. However only 5 months into my
ownership i found a problem with it. It constantly turned itself off,
not a handy thing when you cant ring people or send texts. It got worse
so i decided to get it fixed as it was still under the warranty. 2 months
later and it does the same thing again. I have heard off loads of people
that they have the same problem. SO although the phone looks good, i
really would waste my money on it, its not worth it if it is going to
keep on going off every 2 minutes.

You either like this phone or hate it. I like it and think it is a Good
value for the money you pay. The 640X480 pixel images captured on the
phone are of good quality, mine even beats the high-end nokia's on quality.
The colour display of 65K is absolutely superb and the display is good
for even bright lights. Navigation through menu is good. The phone to
PC connectivity is a breeze through the infrared using Samsungs Easy
Studio software. I even got a pc cable, but prefer the infrared for
connectivity and transfer on the fly. The battery backup and reception
quality is excellent. MMS, SMS are good and typing is a breeze. Polyphonic
ring tones absolutely ROCK! Ensure you get good quality ring tones...
Straight design, not a flip or slide opening design. Its USP of Camera
flash is good for those really close shots, or be innovative and use
it as a torch... quite powerful at that... and very handy. Huge Memory
Bank - 9MB is big time for a phone in this category, I get around 150
ring tones in it, 100 or 50 (HIGH res.) pictures and much much more
I am not a nokia buff having had some bad experiences with a few handsets
before and my alternative in Samsung works for me well as like I had
already mentioned, they give good value for the money you pay, especially
when I keep changing my handsets every year or so. But I guess, I will
hold onto this x600 for awhile as it has got features that will hold
good for more than a year. There are drawbacks in the x600, every phone
does, just that in my case the postives outweighed the negatives. The
drawbacks are most visibly the external antenna!!! How I wish, I could
get rid of it. And the software is not very user friendly, but I have
learnt to get over this soon enough. No Bluetooth, but I don't have
one in my laptop anyway, so it was OK. Java games, which will bore you
sooner. Download away and have fun. You can also download games of the
pc cable, just google to find out how. The standard toolsets in the
phone are very useful, if you use it. I don't usually write reviews
and a long one at that, but I see a lot of people complain about this
phone because they buy it for the wrong reasons and don't read the manuals
or configure it properly, The phone is as good as the person using it
and I think my phone x600 is excellent.
