A very slick and stylish device. I have never owned such a user-friendly and good-looking phone. This is not the iphone killer but it all comes down to what you want.
It has an amazing 5mp camera and the widgets are a very good idea.
I would recommend getting this phone and if not a bit on the exspenive side it is a very good buy

I personally much prefer the Samsung. Finish is better and it is easier to use. Battery lasts longer also. I don't get on with the iphone but maybe it's just personal choice.

This phone is no doubt a great little gadget. The faster internet speeds do pull along when you’re on a network with a good 3G signal (Vodafone). Mobile TV is something that we can all enjoy, and with networks now offering unlimited browsing it’s more accessible to us. I work in the industry and I would say right now this phone is one of the best. The touch screen is the best any make has ever pulled out. It uses heat sensitivity rather then pressure which I prefer. This is a negative for anyone with long nails or a stylus, but it’s so easy to use you don’t need a stylus. Texting is easier on this that on a normal phone, and I like the idea that you can drag and drop onto the main dashboard like a desktop. This is very user friendly and music quality on the device is great. So all in all 10/10. Oh, but I forgot about the camera, And Samsung would have been better off if I did. I have a SE C902 also and that has an incredible camera. This F480V has a poor camera. Fine it’s 5 megapixel camera, but were getting to carried away to remember what megapixels represent. I don’t know anyone who blows they pictures up to full on cinema size posters. So why not stick a good 3.2 megapixel camera on there? Battery life is good holding around 40 hours on heavy usage. All phones now have lithium batteries in them. Meaning you have to charge about every two days buy for about 30 minutes. Overall I’d say 8/10 camera is important to people and Samsung didn’t put a good one on here.

Anonymous, 15 Aug 2008HI, Where can I get the latest firmware? Thanksas far as known, there is no newer firmware as the one installed on the mobile. There are no bugs in it, no need for newer firmware. The mobile works perfect, let us keep it like that
bk, 12 Aug 2008well i totally don't agree with you.Got mine last week and flashed it to the latest firmware..... morewould you please help me how to erase recipients list from the recent contact when you are sending sms message?
thank you in advance..
A lovely phone and beautifully finished. If you want it for its looks it's great. But I'm sorry to say that I found the software rather annoying. It's also a bit limited and I found it took longer to do elementary things like text or update contacts, and so on. Also I found the phone sometimes froze when I moved the widgets - it seems that that action can't be hurried. So except for its looks, the phone was a disappointment and certainly not up to the hype.
Ang, 14 Aug 2008Thanks for this post, at last I can change my message alert tone!! hi there, i just got the samsung tocco - i noticed u can download tunes as a ringtone but how do u do that for the message tone......can u help?
Neat Phone, but I liked the television advertisment of this Beijing Olympics' Official phone... It stands in a high standard among all other Cell phone advertisments in television.
Congratulations for team behind its promotional activities !!!!!

Has some one bought this phone in India or any other asian region. I want to know that is it correct that in 2G n/w it has battery life 8hrs and in 3gn/w it is 3 hrs. Can some one tell me how is the battery life? According the following offical site of Samsung in India they claim to have battery life of 3 hrs
