Written on: 10/01/2005 by sree1231 (1 review written)

The Samsung C100 has a beautiful colour display which is based on the Samsung sft screen technology, even though the refresh rates are good, a lot needs to be done as far as the screen size is concerned.. a little bigger screen would have enhanced the sales of the phone ..
Even though the keypad and the lights are solid, messaging from this phone is a nightmare, for one there is no one-to-many sms function, the typing is tedious and the response time is large when the characters exceed 240… Read Full Review

Happy with its look and sound.
Tone and PICtures cannot be attached in SMS. seems like attachement is possible from a personal folder alone but never able to save anything to this personal folder that you never send anything from this personal folder!! Not possible to SEND TONE AND PICTURE -hectic?
Reception is low, ring sound is good only for some perticular frequecny. retains most setings after battrey removal. But some settings do reset. IRDA commincation works fine with LAPTOP… Read Full Review

Tried connecting to a pc with an A 300 cable. Never worked. Don't know if there is a cable available for the Samsung C100 mobile phone. Haven't tried the IRDA though. Animated menus are not slow like some would have you believe. Shortcut keys are very convenient. The WAP browser is good enough. Not great but good. I haven't had any problems with this phone so far… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/04/2004 by catting33 (1 review written)

I bought the Samsung SGH-C100 mobile phone a few months ago over the internet for £89.99 which is a bit more than in most shops but i have to say i think it is nearly worth every penny: i like the colours and the layouts but the annoying thing is that it has quite slow starting menus, for example when you turn on the fone you have to wait about half a minute for the sms service to "Initialise".
But that's really the only annoying thing about it… Read Full Review

I've just got the Samsung SGH-C100 mobile phone in less than 2 weeks now. I met all I saw in its catalogue on vodacom website. It's just a great phone with a great design. The display is second to none, the ringing tones are better than best, the power management is excellently ok and the reception is well acceptable. Thanx to SAMSUNG. Some people might feel very different from my own feelings, but for me, the phone is just ok and it's cost-effective… Read Full Review

A couple of things come to mind when I look at the details surrounding this review.


1. Click Consult PAY YOU a reasonable amount of money to do their accounting. Therefore, is it conceivable in any way that you might leave a less than complimentary review when they ask you to? (bearing in mind that they also gave you a great review on your own site)


2. You are one of a handful of people who have left a great review in the few days following a rather incriminating review detailing how shockingly they treated a non-associated customer. Would the timing suggest that they contacted you (and other customers who are guaranteed to leave great reviews) to help push down negative details of their customer dealings?

I was previously using a Siemens C55, and belive me u wont find a better sms text editer other then that. The reseason i replaced it with my Samsung SGH-C100 mobile phone was its 64K color screen and so is the colored WAP browse.

Written on: 07/11/2003 by Disturbed UTT (1 review written)

Had my phone for just over a month. Pleased with most the features but a few bad points let it down.
Problems I've had:
Slow Menus,
Slow non-smooth games (default and downloaded ones),
Very slow WAP (The pages load up quickly enough but scrolling and typing in WAP in painfully slow),
If I have the message alert tone turned on and not the vibrate, the tone will stop working after a while but then be back again after a short time (Samsung say it is my handset but I have changed it once and have… Read Full Review

Disturbed Utt's Response to Disturbed UTT's Review

Written on: 10/01/2004

I don't have any trouble accessing WAP, the problem I have is scrolling on a WAP page using the one line at a time scroll option. But using the side buttons is fine. So when the page has already loaded onto my phone it can't be down to the network provider. I think the problems I have had are just down to my phone, but I have taken it back to the same shop and had it replaced but still have the same problems. So, I'm not sure if CELL TALK UK has had a bad batch but they weren't very helpful at all.

My Samsung C100 is working fine, your WAP problem has got nothing to do with the phone it's your network. I'm on virgin and the WAP is fast. The games on my phone work fast aswell, aswell as the menu's so I can't really see where your coming from there. When you compare the colour screen with other colour phones you will see that it is much better quality.

When I got my phone it was already set up to work with all the different service providers, all I had to do is choose what one I wanted to use. Try getting the WAP settings sent to your phone. I know 02 can do this from their web site.

I just got my samsung SGH-c100 yesterday and the first thing that i noticed when i first held it was the wieght of the phone, its soo lite that i forgot that it was in my pocket one time. After a few texts i think that the number pad feels and works great. the wallpapers in the phone are great, very much helped by the 65,000 colour screen, which i was extremely impresses by. The java games which are preloaded on the fone,like pac-man and bowling are a very fun way to loose some time or play… Read Full Review

The Samsung SGH-C100 mobile phone is value for money considering competition(India). The most remarkable feature about the phone is the display. The clarity is amazing.I have used nokia 6610 but the depth of the images are stunning.The polyphonic sound qualy is very good too although i have some doubts about the ringtones provides. The battery is superslim and powerful. The grey areas of this phone are lack of blue tooth connectivity and its size. I personally prefer the size of nokia 8310 so… Read Full Review

Samsung have done it again with a superb slim and lightweight handset that will make you the envy of your friends, especially if they have the older N500, N620 or Nokia 5210i!
So lets get the basics out of the way first. The call quality on this phone is superb and equal to a dect phone used on a BT landline. With its built-in aerial the phone managed to hang on to calls even in known poor signal area's. The keypad is a good size and the keys easy to use, even for sausage fingers, although the… Read Full Review
