You should try out other phones before criticyzing this one. The F480 is a great fashion phone, with all the things a PHONE should know nowadays. It has 3g, a fairly good 5mp camera, the battery lasts 3 days in normal usage (i do have this phone). Plus it comes with a great leather "case", which fits perfectly, the back of the phone is aluminum, and the screen is made of high quality, scratch resistant glass. I mean RESISTANT. I accidentaly dropped the phone the other day on concrete. It fell with the cover closed, bounced back, when the cover opened, fell back face down and slid on the concrete for about 1 ft. It has 1 minor, tiny scratch on it, I wouldnt even notice if I didnt know I dropped it. If you're concidering getting a PHONE (not an MDA, like Omnia) this is the best choice you can make. Ps.: I work for a main mobile-phone company, selling phones every day. I've seen 'em all, the best ones and the worst ones alike.

why do people moan about phones not having wifi, people who will use this phone, like me, will not need to use wifi. its a fashion accessory, nothing more. stop criticizing because your countries dont have nice phones like this

Hugo Boss is the latest company to become the "Pierre Cardin" of lending out their name brand.

What's next, the Perry Ellis/Calvin Klein/Nautica phone?

Made for the male metrosexuals, i have the armani phone the only thing that it lacks is the armani screen savers. atleast it should have a designer screensaver otherwise its just the same ol' f480 with the name hugo boss embossed at the bottom.

worst phone you've ever used??!! you obviously haven't used a motorola. you can't say its the worst phone, it's actually one of the better phones, obviously has a couple of draw backs, but overall a pretty good phone. I suggest if you have some thoughts on a phone, yet have no knowledge of phones you should keep you smidy comments to yourself.

Silly comments, of course it doesn't warrant a hefty price tag, but the fact is the designer phones sell. If I was on the board at samsung and was told no need to make any adjustments to the phone apart from a branded label and we could and will sell thousands on top of what we've already sold with the tocco, I would say crack on! You may think it's pointless but millions of women and self-concious vain men would think very different to you and willing to part with their hard-earned cash. oh and no wifi?? just shut up, these things cost to imply them into a phone, thus increasing the price even more! think of the target audience, most consumers won't even know how to operate it, therefore it's not cost effective to have such features. Every phone can't have every feature, samsung have alternative handsets with built-in wi-fi, e.g the omnia, very similar, no branding and wi-fi, that do for ya, this phone is not for you so stop slating it you f***** noob. Now go on the omnia spec and big it up.

This branding of mobile phones is stupid. just by calling a phone PRADA or ARMANI does't warrant a hefty price tag.

You know, I care about looks too. But the branding thing is just stupid, if you want to print a designer name on it, at least come up with a design. But a plain phone? God who can tell me all those fashion phones, what are so different about them? A 9 year old child can draw a draft of those phones because they are all square, black boxes with a large screen. Big deal! Korean companies you need to stop degrading fashion houses like this! And stupid and mighty italian needs to be a little savvy, ok?

I have read on several blogs that apparently Samsung said that they never signed any deal with Hugo Boss and this device is nothing but a dummy image
