F490 has qwerty and a different UI similar to the F700. F480 is more up to date more colourful check which you like best before you buy. Probably easy to get a deal on F490 as out of date already. Push hard, and ask for customer retentions or disconnections if you cannot get a deal be firm and you will get big money off.
whats the difference between f480 and f490
The mobile phone is great. But one thing i don't inderstand. What's the reasons for Samsung Phones don't have Wi-fi??
Have you guys look at the Nice looking phone from Samsung F700 but no Wi-Fi?? I have visited Samsung Engineers in Korea and they have no direction in what t ooffer except try to come up with many phone in kind of different market. No time to see what they missing on their phones.
I do not understand you. You looking or phone can work for you or you looking for a phone is just a nice looking? Many phones are coming from LG, Samsung, and Sony nice looking but not have the functions customers need. Just look at Sony G900. It is fantastic nice looking phone and offer everything but with a poor Flash and no EDGE. This means if you travel area have no 3G then you have no fast Date rate to communicate. Like in Thailand and many other countries the 3G not avaialble but EDGe is. Plus 3G require alot of battery life.
omfg. i cant believe all you guys are saying bad stuff about it. I looks amazing, has an amazing camera and is touchscreen. if it doesnt have wifi then get a laptop. It isnt even expensive.
can someone tell me how good the touchscreen is on this ie does it experience faults after a while like some other handsets namely the prada fone?
Why need a Wi-Fi. If you live in Thailand like I do there is no 3G and then take the phone to USA the 3G on this phoen also not compatable with 3G USA 850. Now you know why?
Another Phoen from Samsung D780 jsut announced no 3G, EDGE or Wi-Fi. Why anyone wants to look Samsung when only making a basic phone when Nokia was doing 10 years ago. Samsung go get a life.
all i hear is no wifi whats the point if you have 3g its just as fast even faster and you dont need to worry about wireless internet..........
I thought Sprint was exclusively CDMA/EV-DO? Will SAMSUNG release a CDMA version then?
i saw an article about the price, says its gonna be around $200-300. I work for Sprint and we don't have any updates yet.. I'll let you know.. ^_^
here in usa we don't have the 3G so surfing the web is slow. wifi is only on certain spots and wherever there is wifi there is a computer or a laptop. i just hope f480 is not very expensive and it has a long battery life.
The LS20 is a smart phone, this Samsung is not a smart phone, in fact very few phones that are not smart phones have wi-fi. Even GSM Arena review of the F480 state that.
If you want wi-fi buy a smart phone!
You want a fashion phone take a look at LG KS20 is slim and nice and it does offer the Wi-Fi. Samsung is company with no Wi-Fi technology.
You guys care about Camera why not just buy a great Sony phone for $100 to $200 Dollars and not Samsung Phone. Phone is made for communications and if it has a good Camera the is a plus. This phone does not provide the communications tools such as worldwide 3G or Wi-Fi. which is primary need in anyphone today. Take a look at Sony and Nokia phones they all start offering that last 6 months.
For all stupids who needs Wi-fi,Just try to understand its not smart phone. Samsung aimed it just for Fashion and its style. For a phone like this we should consider only the factor camera,mp3,performance and OS speed. Wi-fi is not a big deal. Then go for smart phone which will have only 2 MP camera and low audio quality.
is the screen really that bad when after touching it...
yes i am ignorant and no nothing about phones so could someone please enlighten me as to how you type a message or dial or anything?
a friend of mine has an iphone and whenever he uses the wifi it always seems to be in places where I could bring my laptop except for maybe the basketball court. when he shows off the wifi at his or my house I just laugh because he spent so much extra money on soemthing that he already has (ibook)
