I am using this phone from last 2 months and one thing about his phone is that is not good. Total waste of money. Disadvantages. 1) Screen resolution is not good. 2) Cannot minimize applications ( gtalk and other apps). 3) Gets slow some times. 4) Cannot open large images. Problems I found with this phone. 1) Phone restarts some times when u get a call. 2) Track pad does not work when the phone is exposed to sunlight. 3) Browsing is very difficult with the track pad. The problems does not end here. There are more but I don’t remember them.. My personal recommendation is don’t buy this phone.

I bought this phone from Flipkart...Phone looks gud, sounds gud bt doesn't work well as per my experience...when i got this phone i was quite happy with it bt there are some problems i faced while using it...n1. phone reboots automatically sometimes while you got a call. even sometimes while browsing via wi-fi.n2. i faced a big trouble with yahoo messenger only...i was able to connect via gprs bt not via wi-fi.n3. the another problem is you don't have samsung apps available for this phone yet.n n After all these problems i contacted Samsung online bt they were nt able to provide solution..so just said update your phone's software @ our service centre...i visited bt too crowded. But I would like to thanks & appreciate Flipkart to co-operate with me...i requested to replace this handset and they replaced it without any excuses..and i was happy for a few days becoz phone was working fine...bt now i m facing the same problems now again.nnSo i just wanted to tell you people beware of buy Samsung Chat527. Thanks.
++GOOD POINTS :n 1. 2 MP CAMERA AND AWESOME VIDEO QUALITY(THOUGH LESS RESOLUTION)n 2. CLEAR PHOTOESn 3. GPRS WORKS AWESOME/NET USAGE IS ALSO K.nn--BAD POINTS :n 1. DOESN'T SUPPORT 3RD PARTY APP'S (VERY LIMITED APP'S)n 2. PHONE OFTEN RESTARTS/BROWSING PAD DOESN'T WORK PROPERLY IN SUNLIGHTn 3. VERY FEW SOFTWARES FOR THIS MOBILE-VIDEO PLAYER/MUSIC PLAYERS , ETC.nnIF U HAVE 5000 RS. IN UR POCKET ---> DON'T GO FOR THIS ONE.
i have just purchased this phone, and i cant find any of the trouble in the phone as it mentioned in comments, 1. i am able to connect via wifi, 2. No Reboot problem, for all those who think that it wont upport nimbuzz or ebuddy, let me tell you install their java version, 3. many guys says that it wont support jar file, you can only instal java apps in this phone via gprs only, and it will support it, if not not download its jad version, it will work for sure.
