    there are two things i wann tell u here:
    first of all it has 5 bettery bars shown at the upper right end of the fone n wenever its 3 bars dissappears people thought that bettery is drained out but u knw friend its remaining two bars last for lot more than u expect….
    they give u much more power than earlier three bars….

    secondly bro u hav recently bought this phone… its brand new for u….its ur exploring phase goin on… u r using it more often than one can usually do. most of the time u’ll b clickin it to get familier with its features @ this point of time ur bettery will drain fast coz u r using more of it now. so it will take some days wen u start using it moderately. i remember wen i bought this phone at least for a week i used it extensively …. i ws exploring all of its awesome functions…..

    “… increase its bettery life:

    -jus decrease the brightness of the phone
    -dont use the keypad light in day
    this is a very good feature…(n u dont have to keep ur keypad lights on n off everyday… u can jus set a time like from 5pm to 9am n it will off n on ur lights at the preset time everyday….try it)
    -use melody instead of vibration + melody
    -keep the keypad tone off etc
    -dont use animated wallpapers
    explore it u’ll find lot more tips too
    this will help u in increasing ur bettery backup.

    good thing is u got “USB CHARGING” feature so jus connect it to ur PC while u r working n charge it….”

    s3500 has QVGA video recording with 320*240 recording resolution which u cant find in any other phone even @ 7K.
    all other phones have QCIF(very inferior to qvga) video recording with low resolution….
    cam is excellent
    n yup music player is shockingly loud n clear…
    jus go ahead it is the best phone at its price…

    its not a nokia phone buddy…. it naver hangs or slow down like nokia….

    s3500 best phone in its price range….

  18. This is a unique slider phone in affordable price.I bought it from Lucknow one month before but some body stolen it from my pocket in a temple,our mistake was that i have not on the Mobile tracker of the phone.Any way I will buy it again in next month.

  19. i have purched this mobile and i m fully satisfied with the performance of this mobile camera quality is to much good.

  20. Totaly disapointed rather I should say that Samsung mobile is cheating with us. Batery back up is very poor. Talk time only 90 to 120 minutes and stand by time is 50 -60 hrs. Sometimes display off but keapad glowing, hanged, multicolour display coming.
    Now service center also bypassing.

  21. please tell me cheapest price of this set s3500. i am leaving in south area of delhi. so plz tell from where ( in south delhi) i can buy this phone in cheapest price like 5000.

  22. s3500 rocks man 🙂

    apart from 2.2 inch screen + 1 crore 60 lakh colours + 320*240 video recording resolution + 2mp camera + QVGA recording + premuim brushed mettalic body n all this only at Rs 5500
    u cant find a phone having these features at Rs 5500

    other awesome features of s3500:

    Multiple Alarm Setting. One can set multiple alarms.
    u can set 5 diffrent alarm at once.

    Calendars – Dont know if anyone have checked the Calendar Function in this phone. It have all Indian Holidays marked. If there is a public holiday (date) it will show a icon below and when u click button, it will show you which holiday it is.

    privacy lock: Locking function is also very good where you can lock ur Messages, call log, phonebook, ur files (pics, videos, games etc), calender, memo, task etc…watever u want.


    “Flight mode”

    “bluetooth security”
    when u connect other phones through bluetooth it ask for a passcode….it really enhance ur phone secutity bcoz of this ur phone can not be hack through any hacking tool.

    another awesome feature is when you connect through Bluetooth to any other device you can take a control of that phone as all files and folders of other connected phone are displayed on S3500. You can take whichever files you want without bothering other person.

    “Fm recording” n the best part is the audio quality of recorded clip is shockingly loud n crystal clear n can save unlimited no. of stations.

    “Fake Call function” this feature enables you to activate a bogus incoming call, so you can free yourself from awkward conversations or dodgy situations by pretending to take a call. For added authenticity, you can record your own or ur friends fake voice “call” that plays back when you answer.

    Menu transition effect
    if u seen latest aamir khan’s samsung ad then u wud probably knw wat i m talking bout…wenever u press a button the screen slides from right to left….it looka awesome…u can also change ur transition effect.

    Mobile tracker automatically sends an SMS message to a pre-designated number alerting you when your phone’s SIM card is changed, increasing your chances of recovering a lost or stolen mobile phone.

    in an emergency jus press either end of the volume key 4 times when the phone is closed. this will send the SOS message to ur selected recipients. if they call u back their call will be automatically connected. its definately a life saving feature.

    Message alert repetition: it will alert u in evry 2 min if there is an unread mes on ur phone….u can put it off too.

    apart from these there are a lot more features like THEME CREATOR or BLUETOOTH MESSAGING, ZOOm messages….the list is endless…..
    s3500 is the best…cheers 🙂

  33. Hi. i bought the phone last friday for 5900 from hotspot. its a wonderful piece with excellent features. Don’t go to local dealers..theres no after sale service with them. Go to an authorised store.

  34. Dear “NOEL” offcourse ur samsung soul would be much better but dear its far more costly than samsung s3500 u cant compare these two at least for the sake of PRICE TAG.
    n “CHIRAG” i have a bad and a good news for u, bad news is u cant download any theme for this phone on internet as it cant support any, but the GOOD NEWS is that it has a theme creator which is the best feature of this phone u can create ur own themes, jus use ur imagination u can even use ur photos or ur girlfriend’s n make beautiful theme out of that. the biggest problem with the themes available on net is sometime u like the pic but dont like the colours n if colours are according to ur taste than may b the pic is not ur cup of tea. but with samsung s3500 theme creator u can create theme according to ur taste. u can use the colours u like the most or pic of ur choice beleive me its very simple. i hope it help……

  35. hi
    whoever wanna buy this piece of beauty my suggestion is jus go for it. i bought it yesterday n i m really loving it, in terms of looks it’s already a winner, camera quality is very good, music player is shockingly good, it has a realy nice resolution, got 2.2 inch screen with 16 million colours, n the best part is i bought it for only Rs. 5550 from savitri market, sector-18, NOIDA. my suggestion is never go for these -The mobile store or hotspots instead go for a local vendor. i think the price of samsung s3500 in both these stores(hotspot n the mobile store) is around Rs.5899.

  36. this phone is not worth buying despite of high prices it doesnt have those features battery is the worst part of phone you cant even listen music for 2 hours properly so dont buy it
