Rands, 20 Jun 2009so u can only use pre-insatalled backgrounds?
Can i use a photo on the homescreen?
sorry f... moreyes, you can use any wallpaper you want, one of included, pictures, taken photos (even only frame from photo =really cool)
What cant be changed is the background when device is locked, example, screen is off, you want to check what time is it, you press button, the main screen will come up for second but with preloaded backgroun (there is 6 pictures) after few second it goes black again. But when u unlock the phone, you will have you r background, little confusing but this is the way how it is
is the battery life bad???half a day left only 2 bars.is it that bad?
pj, 19 Jun 2009you can change the background, but not the wallpaper.so u can only use pre-insatalled backgrounds?

For games, you have to search for pixon games not the f480. the pixon ones workd. you can upgrade phone software not just java i think
what can i say? for the last 8yrs i have always had a NOKIA from 8810 to sirroco. i now have had my S8300H for about 3 weeks now and it's a great phone. There's about 10% of advanced functions not in the user manual, you have to play with the phone to find them.
SCREEN: bright and clear have watched high quality video clips, no problems. it's really is scratched resistance dropped keys onto it (not 1 scratch).
PICS: camera takes good photos in auto focus mode, too take great photos you need to select the environment(scene mode) your in to take great photos. pics come up very good, when viewed on pc (when zoomed in you can see heaps of detail eg text on a monitor in the background of a photo).
VIDEO: great videos very detailed and smooth.
INTERNET: there's no wifi but i don't use it anyway. with 3g it's a little slow, but the way the phone displays it is very good. too scroll you use the touch screen and too select double tap the link. overall for mobile useage it's pretty good.
GAMES: phone comes with games but they're only demos, downloaded games are great (you use the bottom part of touchscreen as cursers). some games when tried to play pops up error not enough memory (ram), too fix this you have to update your JAVA. which if you google you will find hoe too update it (i followed the steps and it worked like a charm).
CALLS / VIDEO CALLS: voices are clear on both ends and volume is good. video calls are blurred and laggy but i guess it's just the low quality camera.
OVERALL: user interface took a while to get used too but once familiar it's second nature. it's not perfect in any one area. if your looking for a nice looking phone and has a great bit of everything this is the phone too get.
