Samsung X640 review
| ||Review: July 2005
Last updated December 2005
In a nutshell: The Samsung X640 is an entry-level camera phone.
Compare prices | User reviews
Samsung have shaved a little off the price by not including an external display, which is a bit of a shame, but if this doesn't put you off, then the rest of the phone offers excellent value for money.
It's a lightweight compact phone, physically very similar to the Samsung X450, which also lacks an external display. In fact, the X640 is virtually identical to the X450, but with the addition of a VGA camera, a handsfree speaker and Samsung's voice clarity technology which first appeared in high-end phones like the Samsung D500 and E720. The voice clarity system monitors the background noise and the loudness of the voice in order to make the phone call as clear as possible.
The camera is a standard VGA camera as used on all Samsung's entry-level and mid-range camera phones and does its job well. The UFB (Ultra Fine & Bright) display is crystal clear and is better than average for this class of phone. Samsung have equipped the X640 with a generous 6.5 Mbytes of memory, which is a good size for storing photos and Java games.
If you can live with the absense of an external display, then the X640 offers value for money if you're looking for a cheap clamshell camera phone. If you want the benefit of a dual screen, then we recommend the Samsung E330 instead, although the E330 is a dual-band phone.
Samsung X640 features include:
- VGA camera (640 x 480 pixels) with 4x digital zoom and night mode
- Internal display: UFB, 65,536 colours, 128 x 160 pixels (1.7 inches)
- 40-voice polyphonic ringtones
- Handsfree speaker
- Voice clarity
- Messaging: SMS, EMS, MMS (learning T9)
- Photo caller ID
- Games: Snowball Fighter, Bubble Smile plus downloadable Java™ games
- Phonebook (1,000 entries)
- Personal Information Management: calender, scheduler, to do list, clock / worldtime, alarm (once/daily/weekly), currency converter, calculator, memo book, stopwatch, countdown timer
- Memory: 6.5 Mbytes
- Connectivity: RS232 serial port (cable not supplied)
- WAP 2.0, GPRS class 10
- Vibration alert
- Size: 87 x 47 x23 mm
- Weight: 85g
- Talktime: 3.5 hours
- Battery standby: 220 hours

Samsung X640 is possibly the best phone on the market for the price. It's virtually indestructable with a high quality screen and really attractive look. The phone is simple to use and has some really great features. I'd definitely recommend it!!!

Samsung X640 is not up to the mark . Following are Deficiencies: You can not see detail of group members. Practically Group option is useless. When you receive a call the Set do not prompt to save this new number. When you want to add a miscall / recived call No in your existing phone book, it always add as a new number instead it should ask to add this number as a new or in some existing contact. I m thinking to replace it with some better model and advise the same to all.

Yeah, the phone is small and lightweight, which I like. The screen is bright and clear and the sound is okay. The VGA camera tends to wash out in bright light, but otherwise its also good. Like the large phonebook entry, so I can store a massive amount of numbers in the phone. All in all, a good value gadget.

Well well well my enemy back from the dead. So heres a bit of a story "Long ago in a faraway land (well actually a year and a bit ago and in a town) I went to the optus shop and voila I bought this phone- at the time it was great for me. But then the upgrades happened, not only were mobile companies releasing fantastic phones- my friends were getting phones with video cameras realtones- the works, but while my friends were off with their video cameras and real tones I was stuck here with an average phone, but thank goodness it broke an excuse for a good phone! But it broke in the worst possible way, it was calling my sister BY ITSELF repeatedly, it would not turn off, I tried everything...my warranty had run out roughly 4 days before, I was happy but sad at the same time- I was phoneless for ages and all of my photos from Queensland were gone I know I know I should've bought a camera...anyway what I'm getting at is this phone was once great but its not anymore because its not reliable and doesn't have the benchmark fetures food for thought:

I was using the Nokia 6610 and had no complaints with it at all. I brought
the Samsung X640 primarily because I wanted to use a clam-shell phone.
I had been using candy bars all along. Nokia's clam shells are lousy.
The X640 is a sleek, oval shaped phone, the antenna-less design makes
it comfortable to hold or slip into one's pocket. The battery performance
is also pretty good. The phone could have been thinner (when compared
to the Motorola V3 Razr), but one cannot complain too much about that
for the price that one needs to pay for the V3 Razr. The X640's camera
is pretty decent. On the negative side, it's sometimes difficult to
open the clam shell especially when you are driving. Opening the clam
in a hurry also causes accidental activation of the volume switch on
the side of the phone causing the volume increase/decrease screen to
pop up. This is irritating. When on speakerphone, the menu displays
'Normal' and it displays "Spk on" when in the normal mode. This is a
S/W bu g. Samsung could have included the PC cable as a standard accesory.
I am used to connecting my mobile to my notebook PC using the Infra
Red port on my Nokia 6610 , I miss this feature on the X640. For folks
who want to know how to switch off the auto answer feature on opening
the clam, here's how you do it. Go to menu, select phone settings and
switch off the Active folder option. Overall the X640 is a decent phone
provding value for money.

However, does anyone know how to turn off that annoying confrmation
sound, like when you set an alarm time etc. I don't want it constantly
on silent, but can't find another way to get rid of that noise. Thanks

Bought this phone as a gift 4 my wife, she preffered it on d Nokia 6630
I was about 2 choose 4 its compact and style. OK! I saved d half of
d N6630 price and bought this good phone. In addition to its nice look
and cheep price, it has a good display, good camera(with acceptable
resolution, camera features like flip, rotate, mirror, adjustable brightness,
4x zoom, solarize, gray sclale, skitch(!!what this for any way?), night
shots), good bat. life (2 days average use) on d other hand, what da
hell happen to samsung to choose this unbelivable ring tones, I cant
find any good one!, what bad games on this phone(Better not include
any game if this is all you have), why Fastlink (Service operator) cannot
send me the GPRS settings and I hv to visit them??.. AND AND NO IR!!
NO Bluetooth??!! why? what a camera phone without sharing your Cam pics
to others?? this is dissapointing. Any way, this is a good standard
and reliable phone for your money, but dont 4get to turn it silent if
you are using it on night.

I think its a great phone. Had lots of diffrent types before but chose
this one for the price and the design. I love clamshell and have no
problems opening it - but my little kids do: so a good feature! No external
display but hey how hard is it to open to see who is calling? Sound
quality good, only have to charge from time to time and photos far better
than previous phone (motorolla v600). Don't care that no MP3 player
- I have a separate one. Triband - excellent as I need it for my work.
No dratted ariel to get in the way so looks sleek and feels good in
the hand. Can hear it ring or vibrate no problems so unsure why another
reviewer could not. Maybe not the hippest, most expensive phone on the
market but for something for calls, SMS, photos and a good size then
I think it is great!

I bought this phone beacause i wanted a good flip phone with a camera,
without it being too expensive. the camera quality is very good, much
better than many other phones i've had, and my battery lasts forever...i
charged it up fully, went to iceland for a week, and when i came back
there was still one bar left after it being on for ages...the only thing
i dont like is opening the phone..can be a bit tricky! overall, this
phone is a fantastic phone...it looks great and it wont break the bank...go

I've had this phone for a couple of weeks and think it's fantastic.
It looks good, works brilliantly and does what it's supposed to with
great ease. I'd especially recommend this phone to anyone who wants
a phone just for texting, as thats what this little phone does best.
Althongh, phone calls and picture-taking works well, too. I love it!

This phone is amazing! I have had it for a few days now. I bought it
for £80 including a years insurance which I thought was a good deal.
The menu is really clear and easy to use and camera quality is good.
I love how you can turn off the operator logo so you can see your picture
properly. I dont miss the external screen,I dont see any need for one
really. The 'mission accomplished' sound doesnt annoy me that much coz
my phone is usually on silent anyway. Its a small and lightweight,stylish
phone and I'd recomend it if you wanted a simple,easy to use phone without
video capture,MP3 player etc.

I just got this mobile but am really disappointed by it's sounds and
battery. It needs recharging everyday practically. If it is in a bag
forgot hearing incoming ring tone for sms alerts or even a call as it
is too low even at full volume. I certainly do not recommend this mobile.
You cannot even change the tones for sms by mms!. Have a second thought
before buying I made a big mistake after reading mostly excellent remarks.
Shame shame shame.

This phone is excellent. I dont know why other people are complaining
about the camera it is the best camera i have ever seen on a phone.
And the people that are complaining about the battery must not have
charged it up fully when they first got it. And i dont know why they
are complaining about the fact it doesnt have a screen on the outside
you knew it didnt before you bought it so stop complaining. This is
an excellent phone and if you cant see that then you either need glasses
or your head testing.!!!!!!
