I've had my F480 for a week. It has its ups and downs, but generally I don't like it.
I have owned only Nokias in the past so I thought I would give something else a go. I also have an iPod touch and have heaps of friends with iPhones.
What I think about the F480...
- Looks cool
- Small and light
- Pretty good camera (although haven't used it much)
- Widgets are a good idea
- Menu navigation and touch scrolling massively inferior to iPhone and iPod touch
- Muffled speaker quality when calling people
- Can be fiddly to type text messages (especially when drunk); easy to bump the wrong button
- Menus not as intuitive as Nokias
- Web browser just difficult to use if you're already used ones that are better
- Mine sometimes freezes for a few seconds under certain circumstances
- Not as user-customisable as Nokias or iPhone
I haven't used the music player yet so I can't comment... But put it this way, right now I'm trying to get myself an iPhone instead. Anyone wanna buy a largely-unused iPod touch? Hehe.
i heard this phone was rubbish.
my k850 has a better camera as well

when i got the phone at my local dealer they checked on gsmarena and told me there is a document viewer on it but there is not. why would they spec it if there is not a document viewer on it. i neede a phone with a document viewer on it for email retrieving but it look to me that it is just a simple java phone.
To Aaron. I`m getting this phone soon. I know many guys who is having this phone so it is for boys and girl (in pink)
My friend has a new Samsung F480 and the battery is running out very quickly. Most likely there is a music aplication running in the back ground. Can any one tell me how I can shut down ap's running in the back ground.
i have just purchased a parrot bluetooth kit for my car, when i start the car it automatically finds my f480, but i've got to keep accepting the connection on my handset which is a pain, is there anyway of automatically connecting handset to bluetooth without doing this???
Can you change the keyboard when typing a message so that it is like a qwerty keyboard?
Got the phone from Hong Kong yesterday. Screen functions are displayed in both English & Chinese. How do I convert to COMPLETE English.

I've had this phone no problem of dropping calls or whatsoever. That must be the network problem not the phone.

dacimir, 04 Apr 2009im thinking of buying this phone, so i would like u to tell me whether i should do it or not.
... moreOnce you get used to 'toc toc' tapping to message, you will be fine with this fone but probably first few time, you have to struggle to get on with it.
After all, I am mostly texting and web browsing. I found it fun and easy to use on this phone.
