Had the phone a week & all ok so far - notice the battery drains quickly tho.
Good sound, great pic quality, only 2 themes and no games. Miss my old SE W850i at the mo, but will hopefully warm to the F400 soon.

Cheers samsung i have the time to be fiddling about moving files that take 5 minutes each!! Conclusion: If you like music on your phone dont get this!...good sound but bad set up...get the the nokia n95 8gb its fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Had this phone for over a week..
-Good battery, but drains quick when using speaker.
-Speaker sounds wicked.
-Slider is solid and smooth.
-Radio is good. i.e, don't have to be stood under a trasmitting tower to receive.
-screen gets dirty easily
- camera takes a good pic for 3mp.
Sparko, Only memory option I have seen is under Camera settings > default storage
I received my Samsung F400 yesterday and have been putting it through it's paces ever since.
My first impressions were good. It looked superb and the quality of the build was exceptional. Previously I had a D900i (which I wouldn't recommend for), which was flimsy and a bit big. The F400 has a nice solid feel and is smaller than the D900i.
I have used Samsung for my last 4 phones because I like the screens and this one didn't let me down though I was a bit disappointed by the on phone display options.
It has all the bits and pieces of most phones, predictive texting, calendar, etc, but it has a new way of browsing the menus with the touch sensitive ring round the outside of the navigating wheel bottom center of the phone. I find it very intuitive and extremely cool.
The main point of this phone is the music. The B&O speakers are excellent when listening through the speakers but when played through the headphones is absolutely outstnading.
If the F400's raison d'aitre is the music, the camera comes a close runner up. At only 3 megapixel the picture quality is brilliant although a bit slow saving to the card. Once a picture is taken it can be transferred to the free 2GB micro SD card that comes with it.
There have been some comments about the front being a "fingerprint magnet". I found it no different to my other Samsungs.
Tha't all for now
I just got the F400 today, and I don't know whether its just mine playing up but...
When i type in a number, then save it, it should come up with the options...private mobile, private home, business mobile etc. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't and goes straight to add name etc. And when it does this, that number doesn't show up in my phonebook, so when i try to type it in again to try to re save it, it'll will say number in use!
Please help, it might just be me being totally stupid, but i'm so confused.
Chloe, 14 Jul 2008can you load pictures that you take on the phone onto the computer?obviously
Please can someone tell me how to switch the storage devise to memory card !!! i know it sounds simple but everytime i bluetooth something it goes to phone memory which is now full!!..i have a 2gb card in it but i cant find how to change to memory card??!!!
Anonymous, 14 Jul 2008How does it slide??? opposite with the ordinary ones????????I'll give you a clue it's a Dual Slide design.
As in Slides both ways. Slide down to reveal the Speaker, Slide up to reveal the Numeric Keypad.
I've bought this phone yesterday. And all i can say that if you like music, Samsung F400 is the best choice. The quality of sound is much beter than in Sony Ericsson (especially in Sony Ericsson w580i)
I'm due to upgrade later this month from a Sony Ericsson W850i brick.
Is the F400 better? Looks better & sexier.
Andreas B, 22 Jun 2008Hi! I've tried the final version of Samsung Soul, which also has the Bang & Olufsen ICE speak... moreThe Samsung U900 Soul don't have a speaker from B&O, it has an Digital Amplifier from B&O.
