Written on: 11/01/2011

Do not buy this phone! Within 3 days the screen started sticking and when you try to press an icon on the screen, another one would be activated, making it impossible to select what you want!
The battery life was very poor too in comparison with every other phone I've ever had.


Google searched 'samsung pixon m8800 screen problem' and found so many people having the same trouble.

Took it back to argos after 8 days for a full refund and bought a better phone that actually works properly!… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/01/2010 by lukeromeril (54 reviews written)

I got this phone with Orange over a year ago, and i am pretty disapointed. i have always tried to find products that stray from the mainstream, and this presented itself as a possible ipod contender. the advertising really pushed it, and its featreus seemed to be quite plentiful. however, over time several things have surfaced which means i will not be going near samsung phones again.

Firstly, Orange. I like Orange, i like the company, i like their cinema 241 wednesday, i even like the adverts… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/11/2009 by gailparker (1 review written)

I got this phone back in January and got a really good deal on Orange. I am still really happy with this phone, I think it looks nice (I got the pink), it is easy to use and the camera is really really good (i took a photo of my cat, and the quality was incredible). I have never bothered to use a protective case or sock for it, and it was only last week that I first scratched the screen - which I think is quite good going.
I do think the battery life isn't the best, as I have to recharge it… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/08/2009 by puretoon (21 reviews written)

How many of those reviewers have got it right about the Pixon! it's a terrible phone to use. It's screen is shocking in sunny conditions. It's virtually impossible to see the screen never mind read text or compose them. I've tried everything possible to change the contrast but all to no avail.
The dictionary is also full of rubbish words that you will never use and can't be deleted. You can't simply insert an apostrophe either, as one previous reveiwer mentioned. The apostrophe stays with some… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/06/2009

Its difficult to text on the Samsung Pixon, because all the buttons are so close, and if often turns into the QWERTY keyboard when you don't want it to!
If you accidently change the language it saves what you wrote in your predictive text and stays there.
You can't save all words with apostrophe for some reason?!
Screen scratches easily and it doesn't come with a case so I use an iPod sock to protect it. I don't have any problems with the battery. My battery can last for a couple of days… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/03/2009 by jonad724 (2 reviews written)

Samsung Pixon M8800: Clunky interface, PIM which truncates all tasks and calendar items to 13 characters, media player which lists tracks in reverse order so live albums for example start with the artist saying goodbye, screen scratches very easily, pc studio interface software crashes after every use, irritating bleep every minute on phone which apparently can't be switched off, handsfree/headphones too long to be used together but headphones to short to be used on their own, other headphones… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/02/2009 by geo71 (2 reviews written)

Overall the Samsung Pixon M8800 is a good phone with good camera easy to use, and plenty of little things in the camera to mess around with. Good camera and love the way you just move across the camera to view your pics. Very simple and easy of use is very good also. Just like everyone the battery life is not the best so get an in car charger, that fixes that problem, not sure if this is just me but I'm trying to get sat nav but all I've found is google maps… Read Full Review

The Pixon does not have sat nav capability. Using Google Maps the closest i have been is within 1600 metres of my actual position. Samsung are aware but as far as i know are not planning to offer any firmware update in the near future. Other than that a great cameraphone

Written on: 06/02/2009 by jewie404 (1 review written)

Now, I ' ve got a Samsung Pixon M8800 recently and was having rather high expectations to use it as my PIM gadget, the ultimate device for all my contacts, notes, schedules and emails. Reading on all the specifications, GPS, 8 megapixels autofocus camera and all, it was a phone good on paper for a very good price compared with the others. The plus side is that the camera is so full of functions, you will have heaps of fun toying around with advance features like face detection, smile shots… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/01/2009 by indecisive (91 reviews written)

The Samsung M8800 Pixon is a great phone. Ive only had it just over a week and really the only thing bad I can say is that the battery doesnt last very long (or I might just be cause Ive killed the internet) and that you need to be careful with the screen. Ive just ordered a case and some protective screens so ill see how they work out.
The phone is great to use, the touch screen is much easier to use than i thought it would, and reliable, although time will tell how it holds up.
I would like to… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/11/2008 by Cutestuff1 (1 review written)

Just got the Samsung Pixon yesterday and so far so good. Review above is accurate although 2 things frustrate me. When scrolling through the contacts/pics/menus it isn't always that great as it can be a bit slow you keep selecting things when you are trying to whizz through them so takes AGES to locate the one you want! Its like the Ipod touch or the iphone in that you whizz your finger up the screen to scroll through and it isn't always accurate.

Second if anyone else has this phone please… Read Full Review

To change to capitals in the middle of the sentence, press the "abc" button at the bottom of the text screen, and select "Abc" which changes to capitals.
<br/>Also, it is possible to change your alarm tone. When you create an alarm (or edit an existing one) click the "Set Details" button at the bottom of the screen. From here you can change the alarm tone, alarm type and alarm volume.
<br/>It is also possible to scroll through contacts ect. by using the zoom in/out button on the right side of the phone.
<br/>
<br/>Hope this helped!

With the texting issue, just turn the phone sideways and the screen rotates and produces a normal keyboard. When the keyboard is turned, a shift key appears.
