Phone is too slow

 

Mar 24, 2008 by hopeg

I liked this phone -- great sound quality and features. But, ultimately I ended up returning it because it was so slow.

As some other people have mentioned, the camera takes a while to actually take a photo, which I'm sure is fine if you're taking pictures of adults or objects, but I was using it to take pictures of my baby and my dog, and it was useless.

My other pet peeve was the clock. You have to press down on the button for a couple of seconds before it comes on. If you wear a watch and don't rely on your phone to tell you the time, I'm sure this won't bother you. But I use my phone as my clock, and the waiting drove me batty.

Samsung FlipShot belongs in your nearest trash bin!

I read all the reviews here and decided to go ahead and try out the Samsung FlipShot. First of all this phone is a big turd! If you want a great multimedia cell phone then don't dare buy this phone! The other reviews stating this phone is slow slow slow ARE TRUE!!! I text frequently and this phones processor is SUPER slow to say the least. It can't keep up with my finger taps using the old Abc input method. And no I don't have fat fingers or mis-type or press wrong buttons. Also the menu system is super slow to respond. Browsing through pics is super slow. opening your sounds folder is slow as well. The preinstalled ringtones are cheesy there's mabe 7 0r 8. I tried to send small mp3 sound files in picture messages to myself and other friends's phones, but I keep getting a " unsupported file content" warning message! My VX8700 on the other hand simply rocks! It does this and a whole lot more. Also if you like playing videos on your phone then you will be very dissappointed because this phone will not play the typical mp4 video files, it will only play 3gp video files at the low quality 15 fps. I know this is a big let down for me and must be a Samsung thing as other phones do play mp4 videos. If you like texting your user created mp3 ringtones to yourself and then saving the recieved file as a ringtone then don't buy this phone! It will not work as I mentioned above. I can't say much of anything good about this phone except the camera pic quality is very good for a phone. Read all the other reviews as they are true to the negative points on this phone. I used this phone for 2 days and I had enough and swapped my esn back to my LG VX8700. If you want a great, fast performing multimedia phone then you will not find a better phone than the VX8700, trust me I have tried them all. I'm going to either trash can or give away this Samsung FlipShot to some sucker who thinks it's a good phone. I wouldn't want it even if it was free unless I had no other phone to use at all.
