Samsung SGH-D900 Review

Samsung SGH-D900 Ultra 12.9

Posted: , by PhoneArena Team




When compared to other phones from the multimedia class, the reception of the D900 is definitely not perfect, it's just around or below the average and very similar to the one of the Nokia N73 and N80 models but below that of the K800 from Sony Ericsson. During a call the voice we heard sounded a little distorted, while the other party heard us clear and realistic, but unfortunately the sound volume at the both sides was just about average. According to the manufacturer, the 800mAh battery can drive the phone for more than three hours of talk time and ten days in standby mode, but depending on your usage, it will not last more than four days.


What is easily noticeable about the D900 is its design! It is a multimedia phone, but compared to its rivals, the N73, the K800, the N80, etc it is much slimmer and better looking, with stylish design and solid construction quality. The slider is form-factor that is definitely up to date at the moment, has flawless spring mechanism and cleverly hides the bulge of the 3-megapixel camera, which quality in outdoor photos make it one of, or maybe the best one among the cellphones nowadays, when compared to the other high-end cameraphones on the European and American market. As the phone's main drawbacks, we can state the limited capabilities of the music and video players and the average phone performance.


  • Stylish design with small dimensions and solid construction.
  • One of the best cameras in mobile phone at the moment.
  • Bright QVGA display with detailed and realistic image.


  • Not the best RF performance (signal straight) and voice quality.
  • Music player is just mediocre and the phone doesn't have adapter for standard headphones.
  • Numeric keys are almost flush.

Your review has wrong statements as I mention below. 1. D900 can play video in landscape mode. Like D600, just press 1 button. The video will play in landscape/full-screen mode. 2. K800i definitely has better earphones by FAR. Just customize the EQ with manual settings. Next time, do better in reviewing.

may have better earphones but not in sound quality, the d900 uses almost the exact same sound chip as in the apple ipod. next time, do better in commenting.
