My F480 was actually made in Korea where Samsung is based. I have seen cloned F480 and they were made in China, it really looks like the original but it is lighter. You cannot use stylus on the original F480 phone because it uses heat transfer from your fingers, while in the fake you can use stylus because the screen is soft and is made of low grade touch screen material. Another difference I have seen is the keypad interface when you text, the original has the multi-tap keypad interface while the fake has the QWERTY interface. The camera of the original was fit perfectly while the fake is some kind of misaligned and produces poor picture quality.

No. This phone has no auto-rotate feature. Omnia does.
It has no QWERTY keypad.
Even the most durable phone won't last if you keep on dropping it. I suggest you protect it with silicon or rubber protector to avoid scratches and to lessen the impact if in case you dropped the phone. These are available on e-bay.
Yes. It is a good value for money and it would be worth buying if you take good care of it.
