been testing my new f480, converting avi to 3gp in a free program called super from erightsoft....
for the best quality and smoothness convert to "s/e 3gp" and use xvid for the codec
video bitrate - 1008kbs
fps 15 - i no this seems a low framerate but trust me it runs in sync and smoothly any higher and it lags.
aac audio codec option
audio 48000 - 2channel - 128kbs
only thing is the video title is constantly on, any ideas how to get this to dissapear so we can just see the video????
Have had many phones, many 3G phones, although this is my 1st touchscreen phone. I too was shocked by the size of it, and how sleek and finished it looked. It weighs nothing and the camera quality is amazing. The installing of java apps is easy through the browser and costs next to nothing. Have many apps and games, including gbc emulator, monopoly, etc. etc. Headphones included are in-ear headphones, and really sound amazing with the radio/mp3 player which brings me to my next point. The MP3 player - is truly...astonishing. It works so well, sound quality is amazing. Video playback is amazing, fullscreen landscape, brilliant quality and with headphones, sound unreal.
All in all this is an amazing phone, and am so glad I got it.

got this phone a few weeks ago and i love it! My first touch screen phone so i was a bit optimistic but it is really easy to use. i can actually text quicker with this than my old phone! the design is nice, before it arrived i was expecting a brick but its actually quite small and sophisticated. the widgets come in useful, in mine i have my internet, my mp3 player, time and date, events, birthdays, and games. Also, you dont have to worry about it going off when in your pocket/bag as it is heat sensetive so it will only respond to your finger. Camera quality looks a bit bad on the phone but when uploaded to a pc or printed the qualityis much better. The only problem i had with the phone was that when i first got it and put my sim in, all my contacts uploaded to handset surname first, so i had to go through and edit them all, but apart from that no problems so far.
Annoying facts about this phone:
1. Texting can be difficult.
2. Sending message can take so long. It sucks.
3. Recent texted contacts could not be deleted.
4. Some redunduncy on the phone book in menu.
5. The earphone socket is on the side.
6. Scrolling can miss your target.
I wish I opted for the nokia E71 instead.
I am sad that whenever I write a text message instead of making a space i press "Ok" EVERYTIME!! and it goes back.. The OK button should've been somewhere else.
And besides that, why does it take so long to send a message??? :(
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2008why is the camera for this F480 suckie?it is not, transfer to pic to your pc and you will be surprised about the quality
the f480 is a brilliant fone, with regards to the front camera.. its purely for video calling and doesn't just work ordinarily without making a video call.. the pictures look blur when taking photo shots..but trust me, well taken shots(with face detection in range) when transferd to your pc or laptop come out incredibly clear
i bought this phone and i like alot. the camera can be little bit suckie..but other than that.. its an awesome phone! I love it!
pls guys help me to have a good settings in my F480 i cant get the right settings in camera thanks
It has a cover for the screen so that will allow us to prevent us from accidentally touching the sccreen.

Does Samsung F480 comes with a qwerty typepad? And can it do that portrait/landscape conversion thingy like the Omnia?
And does anyone who has had the phone for a while now has any problem with paint erosion from the silver frame around the sides of the phone? I had a major problem with peeling paint for Samsung U700 despite taking care of it really well.
And finally, seems like there is no way to take a photo with the front camera? Is that right?
