Zee, 17 Jan 2016The F480 Wine Smart uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8926. The 8mp has flash.Hye Zee. Greetings from Johor, Malaysia. I've been searching info about this LG Wine Smart and Im a little bit confused between F480 and D486. Im assuming they're just the same model with different code name for different countries but, I received mixed info about them from inter web on price, GSM , processor, secondary cam etc. Any thoughts or suggestion ?
-Got it since a week or so. Finally a clamshell with android. (happy camper I am)
In Europe (NL) hard to get, clamshells, meaning not much of a choice.
Price: 139 Euros (Marine Blue model)
-Android lollipop on a clamshell
-Navigation is snappy/fast.
-With fully loaded battery it gives a estimated 220 hrs standby time!
-On homescreen a shortcut to phone managment (very handy) Also you can add items to managmentmenu. factory default shows shortcuts to : Battery save, apps, storage, Batt usage, settings, clock, google settings, quickmemo.
-Between 00:00 and 06:00 it automaticly reduces screen brightness.
-Seperate buttons to, close open apps, favorites, contacts, mail, 'home' and camera.
-No english manual in package
-No support on LG.com (search on H410 or Wine gives no results back at this time feb2016)
-No other skins to choose from.
-Navigation button has no backlight (all the other buttons do)
-auto screen rotation does not work with all apps.
-No covers available (yet)
-no T9 function in searchbar internet.
-Nice phone. Good price. Its a kind of big when open. A smaller PCB layout/format would make it more elegant.But then again the screen will be smaller too.
Maybe with this phone size it would be nice, if open there where two positions to choose from. Like 160/70 degrees (fully open) and maybe 120/30 degrees in between open and closed.
-Big buttons. On the other hand it makes it very easy to operate.
-It has an updatecenter to update software and apps from LG.
-It feels like phone, it looks like a phone. Not a camera that does phonecalls or a handsize flatscreen workstation that goes tringeling.
If you dont want all the high end bells and whistles it will do the job. But when needed just open de trunk and youĺl have most of the options of a modern smartphone available today.
Personally I miss an external screen.
Glad LG released a new clamshell on the european market. They made me buy my first LG product. So Samsung where are you?
I.... actually want this. This looks interesting. It's been a long time since I use a flip phone. I think it looks cool. Can anybody tell me if it's worth the money, though? Since at my country (Malaysia) I can get Asus Zenfone 2 or Sony Xperia M4 for the same price.

SHERIFF, 11 Oct 2015AnyONE know, if we can make hangout/IMO/SKYPe calls from this flip device..Yes to Hangout and Skype.
Can't say for IMO as I don't use it.

Marionettetc, 25 Sep 2015Where can one buy the English version?The default is Korean, very easily changed to English.
I'm not a Korean and I managed to change it in a few minutes out of the box.
Andy from Tallinn, 16 Dec 2015Can you write me how to change the sistem T9 in the lowest way to write sms ? THANK YOU !If you have already selected the languages, on the touch keypad itself, touch ATX (second from top, right-most).
You can touch that to turn predictive text on and off.

I am using the F480, the one with 8mp.
It only costs about USD250.
Cheaper when buying in bulk.
I started ordering in bulk because too many family, friends, colleagues have been asking me to buy it for them.

AnonD-22414, 13 Jan 2016No Arabic In This PhoneIf I could upload a screenshot, you will see there is Arabic.
Zee, 17 Jan 2016If I could upload a video here, I would.
I am using it with predictive text.To be clearer, I use both the keypad and the touch keypad, depending on what I am using it for.
I use touch (with predictive text) for WhatsApp. I use the keypad for sms' as I type way shorter.
Zee, 12 Jan 2016The mobile phone pictured here is not the Wine Smart (F480), rather it's the LG Gentle (F580).... moreHey, but you are not able to type just by using the keypad can you? I'm using it like a old phone with no predictive text... :(
The mobile phone pictured here is not the Wine Smart (F480), rather it's the LG Gentle (F580).
I have been using the F480K for 2 months now and I absolutely love it.
I had it imported to Singapore and it was no problem changing the default from Korean to English.
It's what I have been wanting for a very long time now, going almost back to when mobile phones were uncomplicated.
Each battery lasts for 3 days on average, it comes with TWO batteries, and an external battery charger. I can charge both batteries at the same time, and together they last me one week.
I have push mail, WhatsApp, WeChat and some other local apps.
I occasionally watch some videos on the YouTube app and also use Google maps when needed.
It has both a front and back camera, which is more than sufficient for my usage.
I tether my data for others to use since I rarely use up 12GB monthly allocation.
It's rugged and the outer does not scratch easily, there is no need for cases or covers or wraps.
If it sounds like I'm gushing, it's because I am. So many people have asked me about my phone and the younger generation look at me even more incredulously when I switch between keys tactile and the touchscreen.
A few of my friends have asked me to purchase it for them, which I have. I brought it with me on my trip to the UK and my aunt there is asking me to get one for her too.
I had bought a flip Lenovo mobile phone at the same time and I am selling that away as even my mum doesn't want it and wants my Wine Smart instead.
