Samsung Purple U600

endymion, REVIEW STREAM

  • Excerpt: This is a nice looking phone, but I think that may be about it. It’s quite annoying to use. Infact I’m sure I have turned a similar shade of purple on many occasion and barely resisted throwing it across the room. It just doesn’t always work. Some of this is perhaps down to Orange and their network coverage, but some down to the phone itself. Before the rant on that, let’s list the plus points. It does certainly look sleek, and is very slim and light.

the sensitivity of the answer and hang up buttons

  • Excerpt: "In my personel opinion, this phone looked slim, which is what I wanted, stylish and sleek. It wasnt quite a touch screen phone but has a few buttons that are. However, after having the phone since christmas, I have now realised that it has become very much hard work to cut a call off. The answer button and end call button are not so much buttons, but like a sensor button, so as I find myself trying to press the hang up button after a call, it seems ...
  • Pros: slim
  • Cons: the sensitvity of ending the call

Not Too Bad When It Felt Like Working

13 June 2009
  • Excerpt: "I got the Samsung U600 as a replacement to my Nokia N73 which I found to be a bit on the bulky side. I chose the U600 as it was very lightweight and slim and featured a pretty decent spec, including a 3 mega pixel camera. My first impressions were very good. The phone was indeed ultra slim, the sliding mechanism was slick and smooth to operate, and the chromed buttons looked pretty cool too. The first chink in the U600's armour was in my opinion ...
  • Pros: Looks sleek and stylish, decent camera, easy to use
  • Cons: Unreliable, undurable, poor battery life, awful touch sensitive buttons

Too fragile

Lee, Amazon
15 January 2009
  • Summary: Whilst this may look stylish, and the large screen and keypad are a plus point, as many others point out the screen breaks too easily. Are mobile phones really not designed to stand up to being put in your pocket. Unless you get it from a very reputable supplier they won't honour the warranty in these cases. It is not economical to repair so buy a cheaper, sturdier model.

Do looks matter?

  • Excerpt: "This phone has been my thinnest yet, measuring 10.9mm in thickness. I realise now that it isn't among the thinnest of phones, however at the time of purchase (about 18 months ago) it was indeed a very thin phone. The U600 is a very elegant looking slide phone boasting a 2.22" LCD screen, a 3.2 megapixel camera and video camera, an FM radio, voice recorder and MP3 player, quad band (amongst other things)- all features that, actually, I did use and ...
  • Pros: Elegant, stylish phone with lots of features .
  • Cons: Very short life overall .

Samsung SGH-U600: good looking, bad quality

marie-clare, Dooyoo
13 November 2008
  • Summary: I have the samsung SGH U600 in pink, i fist bought this phone as it was only around £100 (although it is now availiable for a less - around £70) and was slim and stylish. I also liked the touch buttons on the front of the phone and the quality of the camera. however after the first week of having the phone i started to notice problems with it, the battery will not last long at all and has to be left on charge overnight every night.
  • Pros: stylish touch screen
  • Cons: breaks a lot!

12mth contract worth it

clairyspurs, Dooyoo
4 November 2008
  • Summary: I have this stylish phone in a deep red and i have to say it is the prettiest one i've had in the past 5 years. Its slender and fits perfectly into you phone pouch in your standard handbag girlies. I bought it from phones for you and was tied (i'm still tied in til Feb) to an 18 month contract so i was hoping the quality would last.
  • Pros: Stylish and slender
  • Cons: Only good for a year

Not a phone for texting addicts.

HonestBob, Dooyoo
1 September 2008
  • Summary: This phone is absolutely awful. I'm coming to the end of an 18 month contract on it and I'll be so happy to get rid. Texting is a nightmare. The buttons are so sensitive, it's really easy to hit the back button by mistake and if you're speed texting you can miss the message asking if you want to save the text to drafts. I've lost so many messages this way. It's so frustrating to spend time writing a text only to lose it and have to start all over again.
  • Pros: Great video and camera
  • Cons: Buttons are too sensitive and it loses texts mid-write.

Average.

Ms. C. A. Lanzalaco, Amazon
21 August 2008
  • Summary: I would say that this phone is average in every way. There's nothing at all exciting about it but is very easy to use and looks quite nice. I find the menu on the home screen quite annoying as it sometimes gets in the way of pictures that are set as wallpaper. I like the slimless of the phone and the keypad.
