I bought this mobile from retail shop for 1600, 1Rs costlier than flipkart ???nnow going straight, my first impression is this mobile is excellent and for this price it awesome. it doesn't look cheap one, infact it looks like some 4-5k piece. nnBeside the spec sheet, what I like most in this mobile is,nn1) smart contact search: you just key in letter keys once in idle screen and search and your contact is there. e.g. in conventional mobile, for searching 'sandy', you have to type 7777 2 66, where as here just type 726 and search. its amazing.nn2) there is smart idle screen which generally is not there in phones at this range. all the necessary functions are within reach of 2-3 key strokes.nn3) Bluetooth is awesome. my nokia headset connects well with it.nn4) torch can be operated even when keypad is locked.nn5) two headsets can be connected at a time, the supplied one and a 3.5mm.nnNow something that bothers me in this set is,n1) there is no silence option for incoming call, you have to reject it or answer it.nn2)auto update of date and time is not there, you have to do it manually after battery removalnn3) Incoming call alert starts in increasing mode even if melody is selected so it comes to notice only when caller has listened 2-3 rings. hence I have to keep it on vibration mode compulsorily.nnoverall it is a very good set for this price.
I bought this phone around 4 months ago. Initially it was pretty good. But later on I found the phones.n1) Battery strength is not very good. Hardly lasts 1 and a half day. If you make your brightness on zero then it will last for two days.n2) If you stay on phone for a long time i mean with gf or wife or with anyone then let me tell you that the last will become 1 day.n3) Torch is not so powerful.n4) Dual Standby is not available. You need to switch to any particular sim by holding the '#' key. and until you change, it will remain same.n5) While you are on a call on sim 1, then you will not get any call from sim 2. It will be not reachable.n6) While you are using music player you can't send any sms or can't do any other work. It means no background music facility.n7) Now a days we get air tight headphone but this phone comes with old style headphone , which doesn't stay in the ears, it comes out..n8) Only 4gb storage capacity..(CRAP)n9) Sound is not so good...satisfactoryn10) It has a facility of using 3.5mm jack but you can't take call by that else you can listen but the other person will not be able to listen you.n11) No facility to change music mode like pop, jazz, large hall etc.nnMany other things are there... so small price but the list is so long....
Samsung E1232 is a good mobile for those who r looking for a spare mobile...Good battery back up (5days)...Good for txtng n cal...please do not compare this mobile with high end mobiles and features...see the mobile price before u comment it....
