I've had my F480 for a week. It has its ups and downs, but generally I don't like it.
I have owned only Nokias in the past so I thought I would give something else a go. I also have an iPod touch and have heaps of friends with iPhones.
What I think about the F480...
- Looks cool
- Small and light
- Pretty good camera (although haven't used it much)
- Widgets are a good idea
- Menu navigation and touch scrolling massively inferior to iPhone and iPod touch
- Muffled speaker quality when calling people
- Can be fiddly to type text messages (especially when drunk); easy to bump the wrong button
- Menus not as intuitive as Nokias
- Web browser just difficult to use if you're already used ones that are better
- Mine sometimes freezes for a few seconds under certain circumstances
- Not as user-customisable as Nokias or iPhone
I haven't used the music player yet so I can't comment... But put it this way, right now I'm trying to get myself an iPhone instead. Anyone wanna buy a largely-unused iPod touch? Hehe.
i heard this phone was rubbish.
my k850 has a better camera as well

when i got the phone at my local dealer they checked on gsmarena and told me there is a document viewer on it but there is not. why would they spec it if there is not a document viewer on it. i neede a phone with a document viewer on it for email retrieving but it look to me that it is just a simple java phone.

My friend has a new Samsung F480 and the battery is running out very quickly. Most likely there is a music aplication running in the back ground. Can any one tell me how I can shut down ap's running in the back ground.
i have just purchased a parrot bluetooth kit for my car, when i start the car it automatically finds my f480, but i've got to keep accepting the connection on my handset which is a pain, is there anyway of automatically connecting handset to bluetooth without doing this???
Can you change the keyboard when typing a message so that it is like a qwerty keyboard?
Got the phone from Hong Kong yesterday. Screen functions are displayed in both English & Chinese. How do I convert to COMPLETE English.
