Totally agree with you moimoi. The camera has a considerable 'lag' from the time you press the button and when the picture is taken.
In addition, the touchscreen function is quite dodgy in terms of lag in general (try moving some of the widgets on your main screen and you will understand).
Combine all that i have said with navigating through the address book with a tiny scrollbar. Tedious tedious...
Since the phone is a touchscreen you would want to keep your phone locked most of the time. Needless to say, even that function is botched up and dodgy. The button to lock the phone is unresponsive and 'lags' (yes) so you would need to press it a few times before anything seems to happen.
Is the camera really so bad on this phone or are the negative comments by dumb users?
raj, 14 Mar 2010he i want 2 buy samsung f 480for its cemera quality should i buyfor me you shouldn't choose this unit because of its camera quality...its not that good. It takes about 5-8 seconds to capture and often times its distorted and blurry...
I love this phone, it's my new one, i'm on Vodafone Contract and it's brilliant. I get 900 minutes, unlimited Texts, and unlimited Internet for £20.
As I am an avid reader, I can read my eBooks on the phone on the go. Or sneakily in my lessons :)
It's pretty good when it comes to dropping it, as I've dropped it numberous times, and it hardly marks at all. Whereas my last phone would just chip to pieces.
Overall Great Phone :)
raj, 14 Mar 2010he i want 2 buy samsung f 480for its cemera quality should i buyHonestly i wouldn't buy this phone for the camera as the quality of it isn't very good. The pictures are often blurry.
I've had this phone about 5 - 6 months and i am currently looking to upgrade because there is one default that kinda ruined this phone for me -
The internet access wasn't very user friendly. I am on a unlimited internet contract but i hardly get the use out of it because of the un easy access on my phone. It's not a smartphone but still...
Basically my apps don't remember my address or password so i have to write it out several times, which is really frustrating when you're in a hurry so you tend to give up. For exempel facebook, gmail...etc will ask for my password and address 5 times not remembering it at all.
The screen seems to small as you can't see a web pages properly so really annoying when trying to read a blog, website for exemple as you have to sort of float around the page or try and zoom out but the writing tends to become too small so it's not easy to read.
A part from that i was quite happy with the rest of this phone, texting is ok, a little un-sensitive at times but i guess it would be like that for all tactile phones.
The camera is rubbish as it takes ages to take the photo and i tested if with a phone which has 3 megapixels and the image was better on the 3 megap. phone.
But it does have a lot of uses and if you don't really want internet access i would recommend this phone.
