Samsung X830 review

 Review: December 2006  
 

Rating:

In a nutshell: Compact rotating phone with 1.3 megapixel camera, video camera, music player & Bluetooth™.

 

The Samsung X830 (or the Samsung Blush as the pink version has been nicknamed) is a tiny music player phone with a rotating design. There's no doubt that this is a very trendy, cool-looking phone that is packed with features and is a real head turner. Available in black, white, pink and orange, the X830 is one of the smallest and lightest phones ever. When closed, all you can see is the screen and the click wheel used for navigation and controlling the music player. Swivel the phone open, and you can make calls and have access to a full keypad.

Now it has to be said that rotating design phones are not new, and have a sad history. Motorola introduced the V70 and V80 rotating phones a few years back. They were cool-looking phones and seemed good on paper, but were notoriously unreliable and difficult to use. Sony Ericsson's S700i was more successful, with a better design, proving that rotating phones can work if they are designed well. The benefits of the rotating design are that, like a slide phone, you can make a very compact phone with a large screen, and Samsung have really made the most of this with the X830 - it's a tiny phone! The X830 concept does work in fact, thanks to the introduction of the click wheel navigation. This makes it possible to access most of the phone's functions very easily without having to open the phone, and so the device becomes a very small music player/camera/organiser. The problems start when you open the phone to make a call. Because the X830 is so narrow, the keypad is arranged with a strange layout, with keys in unfamiliar places. With a bit of practice you can get used to this, but the other problem is that the phone becomes very long and thin when fully opened and is cumbersome to hold. This is the price you pay for having such a tiny & trendy phone!

Moving on to the functionality of the phone, we are impressed. Samsung have packed a lot of features into the X830. The main feature of the X830 is the music player. This is a high quality player that supports all of the popular formats including MP3, WMA and AAC. The click wheel and user interface make the player very easy to use. Audio quality is high with 3D surround sound and support for a stereo Bluetooth headset. Amazingly Samsung have packed in a whole Gigabyte of memory, giving plenty of space for storing music without the need to buy a memory card. With fast USB 2.0 connectivity and Bluetooth, putting music onto the phone is quick and straightforward. Flight mode lets you use the music player with the phone offline.

The phone is also equipped with a 1.3 megapixel camera with video recorder, a speakerphone, Java games, 64-voice MP3 ringtones, fast internet access via EDGE and is triband. Battery life is acceptable but not particularly high.

Buy this phone for style, for its tiny size and for its great music player feature. Don't buy it if ease-of-use is your top priority or if you take a lot of photos with your phone. The X830 has now been replaced by the Samsung F210, which is a much improved phone.

Samsung X830 features include:

  • 1.3 megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom
  • Video camera (MPEG4 format)
  • Display: TFT, 262k colours, 128 x 220 pixels
  • Music player (MP3, AAC, AAC+, e-AAC+ and WMA formats)
  • 3D surround sound
  • MP3 ringtones / 64 voice polyphonic ringtones
  • Speakerphone
  • Voice memo recorder
  • Messaging: SMS, EMS, MMS
  • Java games
  • Personal organiser
  • Caller ID (Text/Photo)
  • WAP 2.0, GPRS Class 10, EDGE
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth, USB 2.0
  • Memory: 1 Gbyte flash memory
  • Flight mode
  • Triband
  • Size: 84 x 30 x 20 mm
  • Weight: 72g
  • Talk time: 5 hours
  • Battery standby: 230 hours

I've had the Blue Samsung X830 for a year and half, at its survived the hundreds of times ive dropped it! the paint scratches off the wheel very easily, and the phone itself chips very easily. its a shame that you cannot have MP3 message tones, only ringtones, but that's not too much of a problem. Despite what others say, if your fingers are the right size, it takes you minutes to get used to having only 2 rows of numbers, which makes the phone unique and stylish It is lightweight, short and thin, which makes it easy to carry around, however the screen is annoyingly small. The battery power is very good, and if I haven't used it much, will hold its charge for about 3 days. The music player is good quality and goes relatively loud, but I miss calls 9 out of 10 times because I can never hear it ringing, whether I have a loud ringtone or not.

I had this phone for 2 years and I found it was really good compared to other phones I've had. It has an excellent memory capacity without the need of a memory card and it has plenty of features. The only problems I found with it was the screen was a little on the small side and the camera wasn't brilliant, but, what do you expect it you try to combine chic with size! Overall I thought it was a great phone and all my m8s at 'Lycee' loved it.

Iv had thia phone since september last year and its great! I do addmit i have had to send it back 3 times due to proplmes and when sending and 2 page long text for a text to more then one person, f you close the swivle it will automatically cancel. But apart from that iv loved it. Im a 15 year old girl and i have the pink one, before buying this phone i ALWAYS used to 'lose' phones or 'break' them. Since then i havnt lost it once -althiugh i have had those panicky moments. If you buy this phone, you ILL get people constanly asking 'is that a phone?!' but after time people stop lol. The momory is fantastic, this phone is perfect for the younger generation. People think that its hard to text but after a day or two you'll never want to go back to your old phone. I would recomend this phone to any one!

After less than three months of having the phone there seems to be some issues with the keypad (kept switching itself off). There is a loose connection somewhere. I have sent it back to the manufacturer and it was returned to me with the same fault, and all my music and phone numbers removed. Along with this there is the additional fault that the 'cool' rotating bit will no longer stand up on it's own. I will never buy samsung again. It is not water damage, and it is still under warranty, so I will keep sending it back until it is sorted out. Otherwise a cool phone with lots of features and good value for money - if it works!

I think this phone is amazing. Its easy to use once you get used to the buttons going down in 2s. As a teen who wanted a stylish mobby, its great. whenever we were talking about our phones, they'd say 'oh, you're that girl with the ipod phone!' i'd hesitate - not knowing what they meant, then i'd remember that they said this because of the roller on the front. Its brilliant, because it can hold loads of songs! i have loads and love my music, its FAB! I have a pink blush one and it has everything you need for the perfect phone. And yes it does look more like an mp3 player than a phone!

I got the blush in November '06 Fantasticly outstanding phone if you don't like to talk. I had HUGE problems with the reception, probably should have asked the orange shop to sort it out, but I put up with it till January this year and bought myself a brick off ebay for £10, because it had become SO frustrating and caused arguments with everyone I TRIED to speak to. Yet I found the keypad REALLY easy to adjust to. I still Love the phone to bits and thinks it's fantastic. Even though it's battered and scratched, this phone has the same effect on people as a new born baby (weird). The memory and camera quality is great! But it's the reception and MP3 speaker that lets this phone down )= So if you're a texter and not bothered about blasting out rubbish tunes on the bus, but want attention, this phone is for you. A bit sexy, shall we say.

this phone is very sofisticated it can do most thing any other phone can do. it can also turn into a funky mp3 player. this is also a advantage because you can text and take photos at the same time as the music playing. it is very handy because it is so small it can fit into small pockets and in hand-held bags. I think that this would appeal to the young generation because it is trendy and cool, it is fabulous how it can come in so many colours. The memory is fabulous because i've more ten 150 songs and more than 50 photos. Most people say that the keypad is hard to use but when i first got it i was thinking how am i going to use this keypad it is to small, but after a few days i was really used to it. i recomened it to any one if you haven't got it get it now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! when you take pictures don't forget to go up really close other wise it will capture other thing around it because the screen is so small it will zoom out so you get the object that you where taking a picture of really small. even though the screen is really small it is still great. Get it now if you don't have it.

I have had this phone for nearly 1 year and it has been fantastic. I knew on buying the phone that the screen was small but hey I wanted a small compact phone and that is exactly what I got. I have had a few reception problems but to be fair this has happened with other phones I have had and it could be just down to the area. People should know what they want when buying a phone so if they want a bigger screen, three rows of letters and not two, better camera, different button configureation, different style and more functions look for a different phone. I rate this rate this phone as outstanding

well what can i say ive had this phone for 1yr i loveeee the way it looks so many people think it an ipod mp3 player then when they realise its a phone they love it. the way it swivels open is great, memory is fantastic. however ive had bit of trouble with call quality, not being able to hear the other person talking to me however lately ive been holding the phone right at the bottom and i dont seem to be having any problems (only been couple of days tho, i see how it goes) i was gonna change it cause of the call quality however its so good looking im gonna give it another chance :)

I have had this phone in pink since last April and i think its really good! Ive had a few problems with it which was that the wheel got jamed and i couldnt click up. But this was soon sorted out by littlewoods-the place i got my phone from and now i try not to click the wheel as much and i just spin it instead! The memory is great and i love the colour of it! I get quite alot of comments about my phone when iam out and about as people like the look of it! i find that the lighting on the phone is very good. When i brought it i was a little worried about the way the keys are set out but within a few days i had got the hang of it!The MP3 player is fab and its memory and the size of it fits anywhere. I can put it in my jeans pocket and it fits in there fine! I think that you should buy this phone however if you would want it for work purposes it is not the best of phones to get as there is no speaker phone and it can be broken quite easily! However apart from that i wou ld recomend it! I love this phone!! But givin it 4 stars cause the wheel can easily get jammed!! Therefore make sure you dont press to hard on it!! Overall though its a good buy!!

I HAVE HAD THIS PHONE FOR 7 MONTHS NOW AND IT HAS SEVERAL FAULTS SUCH AS ....... THE RIGHT AND DOWN AND KEYS STOP CLICKING IT HAS A TINY SCREEN WHEN YOU OPEN AND CLOSE IT IT EVENTUALLY SCRATCHES IT'S SELF. THE SCREEN CRACKS REALLY EASILY IT IS SO QUIET. IF YOU CHANGE THE SETTINGS IN MP3 PLAYER TO TREBBLE BOOSTER IT MAKES IT GO A LITTLE LOUDER BUT NOT MUCH :S DONT GET THIS PHONE. SAMSUNG MUST HAVE MADE IT IN THE DARK WITH OVEN GLOVES ON :(

i go this phone for my birthday i paid £130 for it and i personaly think it is the worst phone i have had because its not very loud at all and the buttons stoped working but overall i think this is a good phone for someone my age (14) as they can show off to their mates because its very stylish ad compact i am now upgrading to the sony ericsson k800i and hoping that it will please me more than the samsung X830
