I would buy this phone but for one catastrophic failing. The text input is still based on the infernal devil-spawned idea of the 12 key pad design. Its time to wake up Samsung - haven't you ever wondered why everyone loved the original blackberry?
If i ever find the poor fool who invented this design...
I would like to commend samsung for making a phone which is very technoligically capable and yet at the same time compact and good-looking.
Okay, so it may not be the MOST hi-tech phone or the best looking or most individual, but it achieves all three of these catorgaries to a very high standard, and still delievers more than most people need in a phone!
Well done samsung is all I can say.
Prada phone by samsung, lol.
Y make such an impressive UI and copy your phone design?
One of da best fones i have ever seen! every thing is good and i can surely say DA BEST SELLING FONE
Its surely be the next best seller of the year:) i love samsung. And there will be time when it will be the world best selling mobile brand. Love you sammy!
hope gsmarena will update this review with audio test quality and camera quality base on retail unit set...
Please Samsung do a version with:
2, at least CIF 30FPS video at MPEG-4 and not 3GP
then I would buy. Everything else is perfect...
With all the comments that have been posted about this phone, only a few people have said wifi does not matter. The vast majority want this feature, and it appears to be the only thing that will thwart sales. In addition I wanted GPS as well. Do we know if Samsung actually read any of the comments? GSMarena, you ought to forward the information as it is valuable source of market intelligence (apart from the idiotic comments which you could erase)otherwise we are preaching to the converted, and just talking amongst ourselves.
I guess what really happens is the companies bring out a model then modify it in small steps to maximise total sales. People beware, wifi will probably feature soon, look how quickly the F490 has been replaced. Not even in the shops yet (UK) and the F480 is out.
This will gonna be a bestseller if it has wifi..Looks do kill on this on.Plz samsung put wifi on it.
1 thng i like abt samsung is dat even there entry level phones looked so gorgeous unlike nokia..F480's great,the downside is the lack of wifi,bt overall stl impressive.My d9's great up to this day,aftr a year and a half
very very nice phone by samsung
samsung is the best
thanx GSMArena For review
samsung for ever
why did they make 2 reviews of this one??
i do hope the camera would be fixed, its HORRIBLE!
why didnt they put a wifi on it, big mistake!
Don't you mean the LG Prada is one of the bitterest rivals? I don't get how the Armani phone could be since it's also made by Samsung...
