Samsung SGH D900i


The D900i looks great but doesn't quite make the cut when it comes to function.

For Rs. 12,000, it’s really not worth it. To be honest, if Samsung drops the price to under 10K I would consider it. But with a camera that doesn't cut it and a music player that is set to tear your eardrums and a few odd quirks with the settings, I...

Samsung SGH-D900 Ultra Edition 12.9


The Samsung SGH-D900 is the third in the Ultra Edition series of phones which has the 6.9 (X820), 9.9 (D830) and this 12.9 (D900). Those numbers represent the thinness, so this actually makes the D900 the thickest in the Ultra Edition series. But fear...

The Samsung Ultra Edition 12.9 D900 costs around Rs. 23,000, which is a little steep, but we're talking about a phone with a nice large QVGA display, a good quality 3.15-megapixel digital camera, fast Bluetooth 2.0 including stereo A2DP, an office...

Samsung SGH-D900 (black, Unlocked)


To open the phone, push the surface of the phone upward. It feels most natural to do this with your thumb, but even then, we found it awkward as the front of the phone is slippery. A small plastic ledge underneath the display does make this a little...

The Samsung SGH-D900 is a slim, lightweight phone that feels great in the hand. It has a gorgeous display, and features a 3.0-megapixel camera, a music player, a MicroSD card slot, a speakerphone, and quad-band EDGE support

The Samsung SGH-D900 has a flat keypad that makes menu navigation and dialing tricky

If you can afford it, the Samsung SGH-D900 is a sleekly designed slider phone with a stellar feature set, including a great camera.

Samsung D900 review: Slim slider extreme


The slimmest slider in the world already on the market. Samsung D900 (12.9 mm thick when closed) offers almost maximum equipment. It has also been given a special final touch: a 3 megapixel camera and a superb display. Now try to imagine it all in a...

One of Samsung D900's main advantages pops out when the phone is open. I am talking about its 3 megapixel camera with auto focus located in the top area of the back. The camera lens along with a tiny mirror for self-portraits and a LED is built into a...

Samsung SGH-D900 Review


D900's main feature is its design! It is a multimedia phone, but compared to its rivals, the N73, the K800, the N80, etc it is much slimmer and better looking, with stylish design and solid construction quality. The slider is form-factor that is...

Stylish design with small dimensions and solid construction ; One of the best cameras in mobile phone at the moment ; Bright QVGA display with detailed and realistic image

Not the best RF performance (signal straight) and voice quality ; Music player is just mediocre and the phone doesn't have adapter for standard headphones ; Numeric keys are almost flush

What is easily noticeable about the D900 is its design! It is a multimedia phone, but compared to its rivals, the N73, the K800, the N80, etc it is much slimmer and better looking, with stylish design and solid construction quality. The slider is...

Review: Samsung SGH-D900


It's thin, it slides, and it has an auto-focus camera with a 3 megapixel sensor. It's the Samsung SGH-D900, one of the company's premiere Ultra line of handsets. Sam takes it out for a test and generally likes what it has to offer.

Solid design, good photos, good keypad, Bluetooth stereo

Photos cannot be saved directly to microSD, no focus-lock, low ring volume, no profiles

First Looks: Samsung SGH-D900 Ultra Edition 12.9mm


Samsung truly keeps the slim slider formula alive with the new SGH-D900 by adding tons of useful features as well as a 3.13-megapixel camera to boot.

Samsung SGH-D900 camera phone


The Samsung SGH-D900 is an elegant phone with a keypad that slides under the screen, thus allowing a compact size. The phone is compatible with GSM networks across the world. It lets you send messages via the EDGE mobile data connection. The SGH-D900...

We tend to seek balance in design, features, usability, and price in the products we purchase, use, or review. Taking into consideration these four factors, the Samsung SGH-D900 relies heavily on design, but is thin on features. The phone features are...
