Disadvantages: Little Rubber Cover Over The Charging Point Snaps Off Quite Easily
I had a Samsung D 500, but then one day it broke...
I went shopping for a new phone and before I knew it, I fell in love! I saw the Samsung D 600 in a mobile phone shop, 02 to be exact, and I wanted it as soon as I saw it.
I personally think it looks like a posh version of the D 500 and buy now owning it, I have found out its 100% true.
The two phones are very similar where as the D 600 as been updated, new menus, features and a better camera. 2.0-mega pixels compared to the D 500's 1.3 mega pixel. You can really tell the difference! Photo quality is getting better finally!
I’m not going to blab on about all its features and it has all of the features any other phone does, the only way to explain this phone is that its got everything you need, plus it makes calls! lol I would definitely recommend one!
At the moment, Phones 4 U are offering a special deal where you get the phone for free, that’s what made me definitely want to get it, and im sooooo glad I did!
I have the phone on contract, which I think is better as pay as you go, depending on what your income is. To me its better as I know I can use it whenever I want. Weather its in an emergency or just for a chat, I know its there and will work when I need it too.
