Samsung Kies and PC Suite

Written by | Apps and OS, Gadgets, Videos

I’m still reviewing the Samsung Corby Pro (B5310), then when I installed the Samsung Kies, pronounced as “Keys”, I was surprise to see that is looks like the slim down Linux OS. It has it’s own desktop, docker, own My Computer icon, a file explorer, you can even customize the desktop wallpaper. Then I tried the latest version Samsung PC Suite, looks exactly like the Kies but with some minor differences.

I created a simple video showing most of the windows and features of both the Kies and PC suite. Keep an eye on the fading window when you close a feature on Samsung Kies.

Watch the video after the jump.

Here’s a screen shot of the desktop of the Samsung Kies and Samsung PC Suite.

If you asked me, with some additional research and development, a few tweaks on its code, this can be a good alternative Linux/OS for PCs. Do I hear Samsung Netbook with a full blown Samsung OS? Like what they say, “Nothing is impossible!!”

By the way, you can download the PC Suite and Kies at http://www.samsungmobile.com

    I see.. there are a lot of reason why this happens. But the best way is to have the Samsung Customer Support check your phone or the cable. I believe they have one at MOA. Along the corridor of Teleperformance.

    You may want to check the system requirements of the KIES since it's only for Win XP and Vista.

    Update on my last comment. It apppears that Samsung updated the Kies and it is now compatible to Windows 7. 🙂

    For those of you looking for an alternative to Samsung Kies, I managed to find a work-around to using Samsung Kies to transfer files etc. to your phone. I found a way to do this within Windows Explorer itself, using no third-party software – it's just a matter of digging the drivers out of the Kies program. Granted, it's only really useful for transferring files and won't provide all of the other features that Kies provides, if that's all you want to do (as in my case) then it saves installing Kies which IMO is a dreadful piece of software. Here's the link to my guide:

    I'll probably upload this elsewhere if there's enough interest. Cheers!
