Samsung U900 Soul

 

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...

The Bottomline The U900 Soul is stylish all right, but its price tag of Rs 20,585 means it's targeted at those who prefer style to functionality. The battery life is average and camera quality just okay, but when I consider the annoying connectivity...

Before we got our mitts on this much-hyped, 5-megapixel Korean import, we were slightly skeptical. Sure, we got to play with it a little at CTIA (when it was

External microSD slot makes it a cinch to swap cards on the fly. Bluetooth (+A2DP). Competent image editing suite. Video Editor allows you to layer additional audio tracks. Decent facial detection. Haptic feedback can be tweaked to three different...

Bundled proprietary ear buds sound duller than Ben Stein. No Xenon flash. No GPS. No Wi-Fi. Lower-res vid clips. Proprietary headphone jack positioned on the side = hard to pocket when phones are plugged in. Noticeable screen glare when outdoors

Samsung Soul SGH-U900 (unlocked)

 

The Samsung Soul (aka the SGH-U900) was one of the stars of this year's GSMA World Congress in Barcelona. Samsung showed it off at a big press conference, and huge banners with images of the phone covered the city, from the airport baggage claim to the...

The Samsung Soul offers an attractive, well-constructed design and a unique, intuitive navigation touchpad. Its respectable feature set includes a high-quality camera

The Samsung Soul lacks important features like voice dialing and GPS. Its call quality wasn't completely reliable

You won't mistake it for a smartphone, but the Samsung Soul is nonetheless an attractive and well-designed multimedia phone.

Samsung U900 Soul review: That's the spirit

 

One of the first things we saw landing in Barcelona for the MWC last month was a huge Samsung U900 Soul billboard. The South Korea-based company has ever since been doing everything within their powers to keep the handset in the public eye. Now...

5 megapixel camera (autofocus, face detection, wide dynamic range and image stabilization) ; 2.2" 16M-color TFT LCD display of QVGA resolution ; 3G with HSDPA (7.2Mbps) support ; Touchpad navigation ; Cool looks ; FM radio with RDS ; 128MB of shared...

Tri-band only ; Only LED flash ; Display legibility suffers under direct sunlight ; Limited browser capabilities ; QVGA video recording at most

Finally, we shouldn't forget the Soul's forerunners. Samsung U600 and U700 have their own fans, although inevitably ageing. The recently reviewed LG KF600 could also steal some customers with an InteractPad that has greater capabilities than the...

FlipShot by Samsung (SCH-U900)

 

Verizon Wireless' latest 3-megapixel camera phone invites you to leave your point-and-shoot at home.

Samsung FlipShot SCH-U900 (red, Verizon Wireless)

 

Though you wouldn't know it from its name, the Samsung FlipShot for Verizon Wireless is a redress of the carrier's earlier SCH-A990. Also called the SCH-U900, the FlipShot offers a similar array of camera-centric features (what would you expect with a...

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

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

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.

Samsung SCH-U900 Flipshot

 

Samsung's SCH-u900 FlipShot for Verizon is the carrier's best camera phone, but that's not saying as much as it should. While the FlipShot's 3-megapixel camera offers better picture quality than any other Verizon camera phone, it still suffers from...

Verizon's highest-resolution camera phone. High-end features

Camera's autofocus causes major shutter lag. Focus and exposure problems. Business card scanner delivers inaccurate results

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.

Samsung SCH-U900

 

Ah, the Samsung FlipShot (a.k.a. SCH-U900) camera phone -- what's not to like about a bright red (or slick black) cell phone with a built-in 3-megapixel camera, a decent MP3 player, solid call quality, and impressive battery life? For anyone on the...
