Summary: i had samsung v205 for almost 3 years now and all i can say is it's one of the best phones i have ever had. although there are some darwbacks such as low batt life and sometimes it turns off by itself. Nevertheless, it is the best!i will never regret buying one and im delightful coz it's still working after all the heat, and drop!Viva la V205!
Excerpt: The phone it self is a wonderful thing. I have never own a Flip little lone a Samsung. I more into the strength and durability that the phone has. The camera (interesting feature) is not good when used in broad day light. Even when you lower the lighting on the phone. Ring-tones, have to find load ones, are low because of no external speaker to allow sound to come through. T9 on the phone sucks, I have to type in each time things the phone does not understand.
Excerpt: I heard of this phone coming out several months before I got even a hint of what it really looked like. I got really excited and I wasn't disappointed. It does lack a couple things I'd like 1) you can't use the pics you take or receive as caller id. 2) Samsung has yet to invent the data kit for it. 3) It didn't come with any EMS content on it or anywhere i can find it.
Excerpt: I say good but I think is is very much lacking. I found the menus to be very non-intuitive. Compared to other Samsung phones, I think this one needs some help. And for the price, it is NOT worth it. And the IR port doesn't seem to be good for much of anything.
Good battery life
Menu system not intuitive and ugly
Too easy to press mMode button
WAP browser isn't very good
Excerpt: I recently got this phone through AT&T Customer Care, I swapped it in for my Nokia 6800 (Too bulky) Anyways, I really like this phone alot, really loud ringers, nice color display. The reception is very good as well, all around exceptional phone, recommend it to anybody.
Excerpt: Samsung cell phones have a better address book than Motorola. With Samsung a person with numerous numbers is entered under that one (1) name (press the name..all numbers are displayed). That feature alone, has me purchasing Samsung cell phones. Now, for the V205..I've had it for 2-1/2 years. I had to replace an antenna after the first year, earbuds headset every few months and my END button on the keypad is broken.
Excerpt: Hello: just wanted to give my thoughts on the V205. I purchased this phone after owning the Nokia 6010. I just want to say over all I found this phone to be very user friendly. I love the large font and display. I just purchased the Motorola V330 and I hate the complex menu and small font. You need a magnify glass to read the screen. I am going to continue using my Samsung V205.
