Samsung A860 Poor Audio 2nd Opinion

frigate, Phone Scoop
27 September 2006
  • Excerpt: I got this phone for Christmas. Except for the terrible audio, the phone is quite nice. If you have any hearing problems at all, the phone is unusable. I would recommend against buying this phone until the audio problems are fixed. *Samsung ... are you listening?* Hopefully Samsung will come out with a "flash" that fixes this problem. Here's hoping.

Not bad for a first cell phone

  • Excerpt: This is my first cell phone, and I've had it for a little over a week. On the whole I have to say that I'm pretty satisfied. It has a good range of out-of-the-box ringtones, the menus are easy to navigate, and I like the visual sleekness and simplicity of the unit. Unlike most people who've rated it so far, I've found the sound quality to be good except in very noisy environments.

Samsung A860 poor voice quality

  • Excerpt: I've had this phone 1/2 a week. I have to return it. Reception, outgoing call quality, various goodies including voice dialing are all good and would lead to a great basic phone unfortunately the quality of the incoming voice is terrible. I can't believe how bad it is and how different it is from other Samsung phones. I tested it with other people and myself, land line to cell, cell to cell and every combination I could think of in areas with great reception.

bad audio

  • Excerpt: I've had many phones over the last ten years and this is the worst I've had. bad reception anywhere where I live (toronto, Canada) and people's voices cut out. The guy at Bell (where I bought it) told me off the record that many people have complained but Samsung is not admitting any problem. I'm taking it back. Four weeks of this hell has been enough. Stay away from this phone if clairity and reception are important to you (they are to me).

an average phone

  • Excerpt: i''ve had the phone for 6 months and have used it a lot since i use it is my home phone as well. as you can see from the specs its not a flashy phone, but it does the job. the reception on the phone is fine. the extendable antenna is sometimes great when you''re in a basement and need to get a little more reception, but sometimes a pain when you''re getting it out of your pocket (i''m scared one day i''m going to pull it off).
