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?

keryn, 27 Aug 2008May I Know how is the battery life for this F480 phone? ThanksBattery life is surprisingly good. I found a good way of extending the battery life by just turning down the screen brighness down from settting 5(max) to setting 3 it doubled the life, I can usually go four days without charging.
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2008Is fingerprints an issue for this phone, as is the case with the Prada phone?
Does it come ... moreYes finger prints are an issue, but so are all touch screen phones! It wipes clean easily though. It doesn't work with a stylus, it only registers your fingers.
This is my third touch screen phone and this is the easiest one I have ever used for sending texts, I can type faster than a normal keypad, it doesn't take any getting used to.
