Samsung Ultra Edition 6.9 (X820)

A featherweight at 66 grams, Samsung's Ultra Edition 6.9 (aka the X820) is being touted as the world's thinnest candy-bar phone, with a profile of only 6.9mm. A 2-megapixel camera adds to its appeal.

The Good:It's light and thin. Some nice features and great picture quality. Nice body design.

The Bad:Battery- you have to keep charging it because the battery doesn't last very long, the sound could be better, and camera is slightly sensitive, so some pictures may be blurry or distorted.

This exceedingly rare score is reserved for a product that is as perfect as it could be.

The Good:Slim design, lots of features such as mp3 player, camera, video, bluetooth

The Bad:Battery- you have to keep charging it because the battery doesn't last very long, the sound could be better, and camera is slightly sensitive, so some pictures may be blurry or distorted.

I love it. It's slim and cute, and it would be perfect if not for a few performance shortcomings.

The Good:sleak and elegant design.wonderful screen and high quality sound.

The Bad:No MEMORY CARD! pathetic ringtones, and it feels 2 fragile 2 handle.

I've tried all kind of phones and although it isn't the most practical it is the cutest and most appealing.I really don't use those numerous features on other phones, I only care about the quality of the sound and the vibrant colours.

The Good:Light-weight; stylish; incredible high-resolution; loud and clear … and very easy to operate and navigate.

The Bad:Overly-feminine design; polymer battery, resulting in a max 8 hours talking or 2 idle days; unstable camera, usually 4 out of 5 pictures are blurry; phone must be turned on in order for the alarm feature to be used; limited ring-tones and games.

After only 2 hours of owning this phone, my husband decided to give it to me ... his reasoning: "too feminine"; something to consider men! A very nice present for me though!

remarkably thin, excellent screen and snappy interface. sound quality on the internal speakers is excellent - loud and clear without distortion. my signal bar is always at 100% (i live in a city though - not sure how it would handle in weaker signal areas).

"Where is the Signal? "

RK posted a review   

The Good:It's light and thin. Some nice features and great picture quality. Nice body design.

The Bad:The sound on the phone is horrible. It is easy to lose. There are no nice ringtones or games. The camera is very sensitive, thus leaving you with distorted images sometimes. The worst is the signal, you either get nothing or the phone is breaking up a lot of the time and this can become very frustrating.

Overall , the phone looks nice and you will have people comment on it's sexy design and it's cool features. But i don't believe it is worth the price, especially when you can barely ever make the calls.

"Sweet Phone, super light, super thin, attracts girls"

Anonymous posted a review   

The Good:The phone has a new OS (at least to me) and is definatly much better than the previous Samsung Menu setup. The 2.0 MP camera is the best I have seen for a mobile phone with tons of options. The phone is extremely thin, just the way I like them. The LCD screen is very big and the buttons are far easier to press than the RAZR or SLVR. I can find each button just by feeling, unlike the RAZR where I'd have to look down. The center of navigation button is the "select" button which makes things a lot easier and quicker, unlike previous samsung models. When I place it in my pocket I get paranoid because I think I've lost it, since it feels like its not there at all. Sound quality is also very good and clear. Battery lasts for days.

The Bad:The phone comes with about 10 pre-installed ringtones, all suck. It has no regular ring ringtone which is my preference. The phone is very thin and at times I feel like I may accidentally crack it in half. When I plug it in to charge it, my screen stays lit.

I've had numerous phones, and have been in love with Candy Bar phones, and this one is by far the best Candy Bar phone ever made. I like thin, and this phone does a good job with that. The menu/os is much better than Samsungs previous and the Camera too. If you like phones that are unique and attracts girls, this one is for you.
