TV out cable
TransFlash memory card (the amount depends on your market)
Bluetooth headset (depending on the market for many markets, not available)
Samsung D600 photos
In October 2004 showed a model of Samsung D500, which became the basis for most phones, middle and high segment today. As the first new class of devices on the phone incorporates several innovations, including Bluetooth, 1.3 megapixel camera, a large amount of memory, a screen with excellent performance and an unusual form factor slider. Software unit has also undergone changes, unlike previous models, improved interface, new features. Samsung D500 model has a qualitative leap forward, stood on a par with the best products from other manufacturers on the market. Alternatives to this unit in such a form factor was not there.
Greater interest was the continuation of the group, the D600 model, which is presented in a short time at CeBIT in March 2005. On the other hand a number of differences occurred only in a quantity (best feature of this or that), but in reality, the phone has a lot of changes, including the software. D600 is a phenomenon in the same order as the D500 can print out this work, debug and improve the existing functional unit. Given that the D500 offers a powerful set of features, it was only necessary to increase the flagship model, and to get that is able to dominate the market until the end of 2005. This problem has been solved completely.
D600 design has much in common with the E630 model, at least, the impression created by those who see the official photos of the new device. A similar line is present, but no more. Devices in real life are very different, E630 softer, smaller, therefore, impresses by its users. Model D600 has the same profile, but the size is comparable to the D500 - 96 x 46.5 x 21.5 mm. Weight of the two devices is the same - 99 grams. In the middle of the bar is not fractured, it is common also emphasizes the similarity with the D500.
Model design is not very contagious, and is compared to models of the same, is seasoned classics (despite the fact that until the shape of a novelty, this is a classic of the genre). Most people are far from the business of mobile phones and are not interested in a vivacious produced new advertising model for D600, D500, for example. Suffered form factor, the shape of the phone is not movement of the same color differences in the texture of the world. Put the two phones next to you and see the difference immediately, but alone are not so different in the eyes of city dwellers.
Originally D600 will be available in two color solutions: Black or titanium. The second color is light, it is not so bright, but pleasant. The tanks of the two colors are not the marks on the hand black signs are subtle plastic, but the screen is visible. Contamination of hands is, in itself, any functionality specific to the D600 mobile is not here.
The first change, which visually appears on the phone is the screen size. Physically, the display was a little 'more, if the D500 is 30x38 mm, D600 mm 31h41. Feel a larger screen is composed of a few millimeters more and a height of slightly different arrangement and display it at the border. Conservation practices of the physical screen resolution has been increased - from 176x220 pixels 240x320 pixels (QVGA two-inch TFT). The markets are so many products with similar features on the screen, comes to mind only a few models from Sharp. Chroma screen up to 262,000 colors, which is typical of modern products. Images displayed a rich, looks very good, brilliant. Smooth tones, and this is a small grain is obtained for the HD picture. Today's video is one of the best in its class, is not only a cursor.
Screen looks great, many of which the font size depending on the application (not specified by the user). The size of the Latin characters as follows: small (8x18), medium (8x20), large (8x24). French, German and Russian languages, the layout is not supported by information and additional specifications. Since SMS messages on the screen up to 8 lines of text, tips line keys, file names and two officers.
Setting up the screen together, and here is the choice of wallpaper and font color, location, etc.. In standby mode, the screen can display the clock (analog or digital) signal. The user can select the clock type, and how often they show rigid predetermined intervals - every 7, 15, 30 or 60 seconds. The feature can be disabled. As a screen saver may be a calendar.
The function keys typical block of society, they are great in a position to work with them comfortably. Unlike other regulators, the company pays special attention to the disclosure. Replaces the rider in a navigation button, a little elevated above the surface of the device. Problems of this type of organization does not provide, it is easy to open the phone, but sometimes a finger and falls on the screen.
Also, D500 is an automatic adjustment mechanism of the movement, and open and close the device easily. Guides made of metal, ensuring long life mechanism and the absence of errors. Much like half a year of active sales D500 complaints about the quality of construction, playing parts or sliding failure mechanism was absent.
Opening the unit, you will see the keyboard is made of plastic painted in body color. The keys are of medium size, easy to use. The backlight is white and well seen in various conditions. The tactile feel of the keyboard is excellent, the material is very comfortable to hold.
The right side is a camera button on the D600 can shoot, and when closed, it became possible to move the camera back, and not on slider. This design decision is largely due to the need for a 2-megapixel module digital camera that just does not get into the top of the unit. He has more of a less obvious is that the lens is open and exposed to dust, dirt. The second drawback is that the finger is always unwittingly falls for the camera in the open state is obliged to adapt to the process of shooting. But the photograph or video recording in the closed position is not very interesting, because the interface prepared for inclusion in the vertical mode. When closed, the phone can be done almost all operations.
On the right side is the same headphone jack (miniUSB headphones, but the third to work with him will not). The connector is covered with a plastic slider. This connector can connect audio companion, an external speaker in the box, instead of D500 is not included, but is compatible with this model.
The left side houses the volume rocker, she is very comfortable and has a mild stroke. Towards the lower end is a TransFlash memory card slot. It supports cards of any size. Contrary to the headphone jack has a second rack, it does not move, and leans to one side, it is necessary to connect a nail. The plug itself is embedded in the body as needed. Hand in this card with your finger until it clicks, it is not always, especially if you have large hands. The phone supports hot-swappable cards, which are very nice. No problems with the work of memory physically there.
Another difference with the D500 is the presence of two speakers located on the sides at the top. They provide stereo sound, even if they can not claim the sound quality of the Motorola E398 (speaker size, volume, although high, but the richness of the sound is not maximum). The sound quality, the model takes an intermediate position between the E398 and other Motorola phones Korean Pantech, LG. Better than the latter, but the difference is not so striking.
At the bottom there is a connector, is similar to the D500, there is no difference, the cable D500 fits this model.
On the back of the phone, you can see the camera in the right side of the mirror, flash left, which can also function as a flashlight. At the top there is a hole for the strap.
The battery of this model is the rear wall, the lock is located on the bottom, as on many current models of the company. Capacity lithium polymer battery - 850 mAh. The manufacturer claims it can provide up to 220 hours standby and up to 3 hours talk time. All documents referred to Li-ion battery, but the battery itself indicates that the lithium-polymer.
In Moscow the device worked for about 3 days to 50 minutes of talk time and up to 20 minutes of other functions (alarm clock, camera, calendar). If you are constantly bluetooth, while the amount of a working day (30 minutes talk time, up to 25 minutes of other functions). Frankly, that during the day completely discharge the battery life, even those who have much to say and uses most of the functions of the unit will be happy. On average, we can say that most of the time the device is 2 to 3 days. The charging time of just under two hours.
Differences Samsung D600 Samsung D500
The differences between these two models a lot, so let's look briefly, what was the understanding of this topic.
Go to the hardware differences include the following features:
Higher resolution screen, QVGA
The presence of expansion slots for memory cards TransFlash memory, hot-swap
2 megapixel camera
Stereo Bluetooth support (currently there are no native Nokia phone headset work could not be verified)
Some errors are bluetooth, better compatibility, stability
Availability of TV-Out function (described in more detail below)
The differences between the basic programs is attributed to the following features:
The integration of the memory card in all menus (file manager, file transfer from one memory to another)
SVG vector graphics, the application is based on one of the points of view on the menu
Picsel Viewer - View all Office documents from the internal memory without having to convert them (all MS Office files, as well as PDF, and a number of graphic formats)
The installation of video files such as video screen installation for a caller in the phone book (function declared, but currently lacks implementation)
These functions, which we would like to see, but do not have the phone right now. Similarly, the model D500 D500E and it is expected that the output device supports EDGE, the letter will be distributed after the number. The company sees no need of EDGE on the market and not hurry to introduce this feature in all its vehicles. This repetition of the D500, I would like to remind you that, the EDGE support for hardware, software, how to achieve the look of this function is not.
Unfortunately, the phone has voice dialing. This function is declared and may be made, and implementation is similar to the Samsung E620. In other words, an entire system, regardless of pronunciation, in a journal E620 is described in detail, I recommend referring to this material. Unfortunately, the company has no plans to implement the language packs for non-English languages, the company also sees potential demand of customers for this technology. Currently there is no voice dialing, so we discuss it and we will not.
The processor of this model is the same as those of the whole new range of businesses, we see here as often ARM9TDMI 104 MHz Operating System RTK-E. The execution of 64-tone polyphony, with the maximum of MIDI files to MP3 files 300 kb restriction. The activation of sound and vibration can be performed simultaneously.
The implementation of the Java MIDP 2.0, CLDC 1.1, supports 16-bits per pixel. The following rules - JSR-75 File API, JSR-120 WMA 1.1, MMAPI JSR-135, JSR-184 Mobile 3D (software implementation). To play the Java 2.2 MB of memory, of which 900 kb for the virtual machine, 1.3 MB of images. The maximum attachment size is 500Kb. Total amount of memory Java-based applications 4 MB. Download the Java-based applications via cable, Bluetooth is not just a WAP. Sent a request stored in the device, can not be set.
In short, as distributed memory in the machine:
Directory up to 1000 names with all fields
SMS - up to 200 messages
MMS, e-mail - Dynamic Memory General
Java - 4 MB
The total dynamic memory - 88 MB of RAM (62 MB is available initially, 16 MB of files took examples Picsel Viewer)
Calendar - up to 400 different types of documents
Memory expansion slot TransFlash card allows you to record all types of files and work with them from the appropriate file manager. In each menu item separately before the memory card is activated, if the slot has a card in his absence, the article is not available. Minor errors worth mentioning that the memory card to the company so far is brand new and not think about the interface, the maximum integration in the phone memory card exists. Therefore, there is no way to create mixed playlists (playlists), which would link the files from memory cards and internal memory. The memory card was created for the first time a rigid folder structure, which coincides with the phone. This means that the phone will not see the files stored in other folders, which are ignored. Subdirectories are supported in standard folders. Files between the two types of memory can be copied or transferred by usual methods.
Picsel Viewer. One of the strongest features of the Model Viewer feature Picsel. The application has encountered to date on PPC (especially Sony models), a series of phones from Motorola (Motorola A780), Panasonic. The massive use of technology in the phones will be possible with the implementation of the Samsung GSM product first became a model D600.
In short, Picsel Viewer is a program that opens the phone file format MS Office (eg MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint), Adobe Acrobat (PDF), graphical and video formats. The beauty of technology in its rapid action, opening a 20 MB PDF file will take about a few seconds so you can scroll through the pages, resize, rotate at will. No editing, as visualization, but it is enough, especially given the lack of need for additional file conversion for mobile devices. For this feature has a great future because it can run on different devices, operating systems and all working. At the end of this year, we see the emergence of Picsel Messenger - all types of communications from MMS to e-mail client with attachments (size limit will be charged by the manufacturer of your device depending on its properties) .
Samsung has come to implement creative Picsel Viewer in the D600, in addition to displaying data on screen image can be sent to external sources such as television, a projector. In the delivery kit includes TV output cable, one side is the miniUSB headphone jack into the slot of the phone, the other three "tulips" for connecting to external sources. In my case, as an external TV source. Connect all cables and connect to the phone. Voila. Menu appears on the TV picture can move the phone and see the results immediately. Above the display Picsel Document Viewer can display all standard applications, full screen video (3GP files to raster high visibility, but the resolution is different), photos, play games, if desired. TV not only plays the picture but the sound of the phone.
The cost of the cable is small, but with Picsel Viewer, they create a deadly duo. Professional users of many laptops may drop for the D600 for short trips with one or two presentations. As for the possibility of all perfect. Your humble servant, read one of the presentations in this way, even if just in case and seized a laptop computer. Use the D600 is so convenient, but for the first time and not very familiar. You must keep the device in their hands, it only shows roll. If you read the presentation with an assistant, so there is no problem. If you read the presentation of themselves, so be aware of this cable is not very large, it can hardly be exposed. It works in PAL, NTSC, the choice is made from the menu.
On the market at present, there are no comparable products, the link closest analogue TV supports Philips, but here on the TV broadcast images only, no other data transfer is impossible . More advanced versions of transmission images can be seen in the range of accessories from Sony Ericsson, as the channel used by Bluetooth. But there is just enough for today.
Returning to Picsel Viewer is worth noting that Nokia is considering the possibility of licensing the technology to its product line may be D600 and depend on when it appears in this endeavor.
We think the basic functions of the device, because there are slight differences from the previous model. The phone interface has not changed much, only the main menu is also an idea. And 'well-organized, but instead are small icons in animation, the highlight is a large part of the screen.
Digital media navigation using number sequences. All submenus are lists and the second-level menu, you can move through the lists of horizontal deviations. Navigation key can be assigned to the function, which are chosen from the list. In general, the division is quite logical menu and navigation is not a problem.
Board of Directors. Contacts can be accessed by pressing the right key, a list of all records of phone memory and SIM card. By default, the name is highlighted in the list in the status bar shows the number of defaults (for SIM card numbers). Quick search by first letters in the name of the phone can be up to twenty years for any language. When you click the OK button will take you to the detailed view of selected folders, you can see a small icon if the image is affected. For the name of the image can be any image file, and photos. Each entry can have up to five phone numbers of various types (cell, office, home, fax other), one of them will be the primary (the first by default). The fields are secured, two cell phone numbers can not. At the same time, the limitation is not so rigid, send SMS / MMS can be any number of the phone book once chosen.
There are two fields for the name and surname (search only the first field), fields can be summarized as shown, the name comes first. For example, Eldar Murtazin is shown in this order. Length of each field is 20 characters for each language supported. You can also switch from one language to another when you enter a name.
Sort records in a different language is, first of all to all contacts in the local language (Russian, for example), then all the names in English. This is quite convenient and addictive. Taking into account fast language option switches during the search, it becomes clear that the files in different languages do not work in this phone.
Returning to the data included, in addition to phones, you can write an e-mail, a note of small text. For the name, you can select any audio file as a ringtone, such as MP3 songs. Pre-installed on the device in three groups of subscribers, and the class outside the group. You can easily create as many groups, each melody and a picture.
The phone memory has been preserved up to 1000 contacts with filled in data fields. If you do not fill in all fields, the names would be a thousand. You can set where you keep the default, all new numbers. This is an option to transfer the SIM card entries, though not vice versa. The developers believe that the best way to synchronize your PC is, in particular the use of MS Outlook. Each record can be quickly sent to another device, SMS / MMS and Bluetooth. No problem with the shipment are not in the phonebook to another device without problems and he was recognized.
New names can be on the main menu on the right key always request a list of names. The phone can be a business card, copy all your regular contact in the phone book.
On the list of abstracts can be up to 8 rooms, and also separated the number of the same name. Displayed on the keys of the selected name, but not the type of phone.
When you call, the image does not fill the entire screen, but only a part of it.
Telephone calls. Each list up to 20 phone numbers. It is combined with a list of recent calls icon indicates the type of call. Tilting the scroll key horizontally, you can switch quickly from one list to another. If a separate section Expanded display the date and time of the call duration is not specified. Traditionally, this menu you can see all the time, all calls and their cost (if the service is installed).
Unlike D500 phone calls have been improved. Now, call a single number or a sequence of composite numbers is presented. From the list next to the telephone number you will see the number of calls. Entrance to the detailed view shows the time required for each call, it is convenient.
Applications. The first menu item is the Java world under a variety of programs on the phone 4 GB of RAM. This single memory location, is used only in Java. MIDP 2.0 version allows the use of graphically intensive games and three-dimensional games. The phone has three before the game Forgotten Warrior, Free Kick, the Archangel. In the first game you browse the various mazes, collect objects that are fighting the guards. Toy person familiar with the early and very curious. Another game is soccer, the important thing is to score a goal against the enemy. Variety of conditions, especially wind, the behavior of the goalkeeper, the game interesting. The third game is simpler, it is a typical arcade game, you must destroy all the enemy planes and does not belong to their fire.
MP3 player. The phone has an integrated MP3 player supporting random track reproduction, sequential, cyclical. Download MP3 to your phone via Bluetooth both directly, and a synchronization program. Files can have different names and brands, including Russia as well! Them. Bitrate file does not play a major role, the phone accepts all available formats.
During playback, displays the current track number, the total number of tracks. An equalizer is a fun, not a standalone configuration. Tracks can be played through headphones and speakers. The volume has 10 different divisions. Users can create their own playlists. The player is no different from other manufacturers, for better or for worse. It's all quite simple.
Dictaphone. You can store up to several hours of voice memos with the number of entries is unlimited. Time restrictions on registering a user, can be 30 seconds, 1 minute, 1 hour. In memory of all the records stored in a separate folder. You can not record the conversation, it works only in standby mode. In the settings there are two types of equalizers, one of the noisy areas. The recorder works well during lectures, round table is quite adequate, it can be disassembled. To some extent, substitute for a digital voice recorder.
World Time. Shown in two selected cities, all nice and simple.
Wake up. The phone is equipped with three alarm clocks, one morning, can be set for selected weekdays, but is typical of the other two. Each alarm has a choice of five melodies mp3 compositions, although it can not be. You can set the phone is switched on when the event or not.
Calculator - simple and clear.
Converter, it is possible in different units of measurement and currency converter.
Timer. You can set the hours and minutes in the background.
Stopwatch allows the intermediate result.
FunBox. In fact, here, for all files, including music, images, videos and sounds. All downloaded files are also stored here. The downside is that sometimes the file is not immediately appear on the list you want to go out and reopen the list.
Notifications. Work with different types of messages is done through separate submenus. Let us begin with short messages. The phone memory can store up to 200 messages, the phone supports EMS, compatible with Nokia Smart Messaging. Among the key features is support for different character sets, a user (GSM or Unicode). Among the unique features to provide a list of black figures, messages are displayed can be made 10 phone numbers. The implementation of T9, works really well and comfortably.
MMS. The multimedia messaging interface is nice, the messages can be immediately stored in different folders. The size limit of 295 KB message size limit of the received message is not. Additional parameters should be considered a rejection of advertising messages, select the type of reception of messages in the mobile and home network. Messages are stored in memory, general memory of MMS messages.
E-mail client. It supports POP3/SMTP boxes and several accounts. Besides the title downloading phone can receive the letter itself. Attachments are only image files (GIF, JPEG). When you send a letter, you can attach a picture with the camera. Total mail client is nice, but the weight functions is no different. You can create message templates. Attachment size limit of 300 KB, which does not allow you to send full-resolution photos with built-in camera.
Organiser. The phone memory can store up to 400 events of four types - meeting, romance, anniversaries and more. For each time of entry and the date of the event and also indicates the time runs out. The signal can adjust the interval during which you must exit the event.
See the monthly calendar and the week is very convenient with each type of event has its own color graphics.
The user can also create up to 50 text memos up to 100 characters each. These data are not warnings and signals.
WAP. WAP browser version 2.0 similar to some phones by Nokia, Sony Ericsson here to access the network using the HTTP protocol. This means that some of the network configuration required by the operator.
Options. Traditionally, you can select the font color on the screen in standby mode, password protect any part of the phone (messages, short messages, organizer, etc..) Specifies the backlight time and brightness. In the menu to turn off the fan GSM1900, if you do not use it, the machine will work a little more on a single charge.
The phone, it is not, as is common in devices from Sony Ericsson, has been replaced by Skins. A total of two, and changed not only the color but also the title, it becomes rounded. To some extent this is the first prototype, or if you want to change the first step for the entire user interface, we see what is shown in future models.
Bluetooth connection. Compared to the D500, two new profiles, better compatibility with various headsets, in part, to solve the problem handsfree car kit. The implementation of Bluetooth is not perfect, but it lacks basic features. The biggest problem users might encounter is the inability to contact or send a photo to a specific device without pairing, the D600 does not see the device. In general, Bluetooth is better than Nokia, Siemens, Sony Ericsson, but the worst.
Baggage. Samsung D600 In a 2-megapixel camera with CMOS matrix. The camera interface is standard for our products, you can flip the image vertically, turn off the shutter sound. Exhibitions quality image compression from the menu - Super Fine, Fine, Normal, Low. The value can range from ISO 100 to 1600, but it is best to leave the default. Measuring the composition of the soul, or the whole image. White balance has several meanings, auto mode by default.
In the full resolution image is stored for about 2 seconds, has a resolution of 1600x1200 pixels. The auto focus in macro mode, no. The images are good on sunny days, and when shooting against the light, focusing on the brightest parts of the image. The system's exposure to determine what works best for objects with sharp transitions, such as signals. In this case, the image quality possible. The image quality is comparable to the Nokia N70, the physical characteristics of these models are identical. At the same time shots worse than the Sony Ericsson K750, Nokia N90.
The device supports a number of effects - Grayscale, Negative, Sepia, Emboss, Design, Antique, Moonlight, Fog.
Examples of plans on the street.
(+) Zoom, 1600x1200, JPEG
Examples of images in the room.
The texts, photos with the Samsung D600 is easy to read.
For 320x240 resolution supported by the framework, the phone can be charged and a new framework. The flash can be used manually or automatically with the show. The timer can be set to 3, 5 or 10 seconds.
A survey of additional features in groups of 6, 9 and 15 shots in each case has two speed types (normal and high). Finally, the camera takes pictures of the array (2x2, 3x3).
When the video supports the same effect, and images. Maximum resolution of 352x288 pixels. The video quality varies smoothly as well as photos (four levels). In fact the video looks good on the phone, you can mute the sound. Restrictions on the duration of the record there, you can write until the available memory permits.
Number of sample video 1 to 3.97 MB
Number of sample video 2 to 817 KB
Number of sample video from 3 to 2.42 MB
Similarly, the Samsung E720 video quality is not just on the phone, but the computer is perfectly acceptable. Watching videos can be recorded in good quality, the quality of video telephony, deserves the highest praise.
The quality of communication at Samsung phones, no problems at the office there, it is compared with other models in this category. The ringer volume is increased compared to the D500 through the use of multiple speakers, the unit is one of the most powerful on the market today. Vibrating alert is average, there is no fundamental improvement.
The camera offers excellent video quality, but in this case the images are much lower than with a Sony Ericsson K750i, Nokia N90. The lack of autofocus and macro mode add points to Samsung D600. The camera is typical of the major products of autumn this year is an average performance and is comparable to that of the Nokia N70. If you are directed to the quality of the images, you should look at other models.
The unique features of the phone is available in stereo with Bluetooth, Picsel Viewer application, transmitting images of the phone from outside sources. Use a memory card you can use the D600 as an MP3 player full, unlike the D500. Improvements have been very, enhance the functionality of the device and make it unique in its category. Given that the Samsung D500 and had no direct competitors in the form factor can not speak of success, and D600. The company obviously Nokia to release a direct competitor to this model in front of the Nokia 6270 phone talking first of all, the Nokia D600 probability of success, because as high as possible. Compare models currently do not have any meaning, too large gap between their appearance on the market (Nokia 6270 is available in December), D600 at the moment is already present in the final version, and the Nokia 6270 only brought in order.
Samsung D600 sales scheduled for early July, but starting in mid-August. The phone 600 to 650 dollars for the first time, the adjustment will be made in mid-fall to a level of 500-550 dollars. After adjustment costs can be expected in late January.
Minus is not possible to select all files at once (which will be used to allocate all the files manually), a large number of files is tedious. The memory card is required primarily for storing music, images, this task they perform.
Based on paper specs Nokia 6270, the unit is not a clear advantage on the Samsung D600.
