Samsung SCH-U900

CNET
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Though it could offer better call quality, the Samsung FlipShot SCH-U900 is one of the best camera phones we've seen in a while.
  • Pros: The Samsung FlipShot SCH-U900 has an attractive, user-friendly design, a solid feature set, and an admirable speakerphone. It also offers an excellent megapixel camera with great photo quality.
  • Cons: The Samsung FlipShot SCH-U900 had middling streaming-video performance, and the call quality wasn't the best we've heard on a Verizon phone. Also, the business-card reader was unimpressive.

  • Conclusion: The U900, thanks to a princely design and highly attentive ‘magical’ touch UI, has more soul than a James Brown and Ray Charles lemon sole eating contest.
  • Pros: What? A touch phone as responsive as the iPhone? Surely not? Surely yes! The Soul uses a ‘Magic Touch’ contextual touch user-interface that adjusts for different functions, combined with a few mechanical buttons, to ensure an ultra-smooth operation. The 5-meg snapper also takes detailed pics, especially in close-up, but it’s the music player that’s got real thrust. Using a B&O ICE power amp, it pumps out fat audio from the FM radio or MP3 player.
  • Cons: The 2.2-inch display isn’t the biggest for viewing web pages, but the NetFront browser deals with this by letting you zoom in and out. Like skiving school kids, there are two other notable absentees: Xenon flash and Wi-Fi. Damage is limited though, by the inclusion of a power LED and HSDPA respectively - so you can still watch crappy videos of dogs surfing on YouTube.

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Samsung u900 feels like a digital camera and works like a high-end flip phone, but its 3-megapixel photos aren't as good you'd get from a dedicated digital camera.
  • Pros: Verizon's highest-resolution camera phone. High-end features.
  • Cons: Camera's autofocus causes major shutter lag. Focus and exposure problems. Business card scanner delivers inaccurate results.

  • Conclusion: The Samsung Soul is fairly straightforward, but that’s what impressed me. It’s by no means a do-all phone: there’s no GPS and no Wi-Fi, for starters. It just works well and provides an enjoyable user experience.

  • Conclusion: Performance While all the phone's key features - camera, music player and ultra-fast internet speeds - perform to an excellent standard, the Soul's call quality fails to reach the same standards, and the video-recording capabilities also appear to have been neglected. Battery life Considering slider phones tend to have a shorter battery life than their candybar and clamshell peers, the 360 minutes talktime and 280 hours standby is more than adequate.

  • Excerpt: I was fascinated by the Soul’s navigation technology the moment I saw it, and even more so when I got the opportunity to test it for the first time. Of course, that was before I tested other handsets such as the LG KF600 . But I’m not here to do a comparison of handsets… yet. So here’s what I have to say about the U900 Soul, which is part of Samsung’s Ultra series of handsets. Form Factor The U900 Soul slider is definitely a good-looking handset, no argument there.

Mobile Review
25 April 2008
  • Summary: The reception quality put up by the U900 is in line with other Samsung-branded devices. The ringtone volume is quite decent, as it can be heard in various environments. The silent alert is average strength-wise, no significant improvements have been made here. Samsung’s flagships have always boasted a pretty decent price/quality ratio and never had direct competition in the field of slider-type phones.
