This review is from: Samsung F480 Tocco Sim Free Mobile Phone - Silver (Electronics)As a few other customers have pointed out you can also get this phone on pay as you go or contract so its great competition for the iPhone (Which I found a little over priced for what you got)
When I first got this I was a little concerned because I have a friend who got a nokia I think it was which also had a touch screen. It was frankly awful and she had no end of difficulty in just using the most basic functions. For example, you touch it once and it is so sensitive it just automatically goes through about 3 screens. This samsung however, is completely different.
Very user friendly and easy to set up (If you have had a samsung mobile phone before its exactly the same, which also means that like all samsung its quite hard to find the setting options to change ring tones etc but as I say, if you have had one before it shouldn't be a problem) The screen is really big and great for photos. A previous reviewer pointed out that there is a few second delay in taking photos (A problem I have found with the samsung U600 as well so I assume this is a general problem with samsung) However, the delay is much shorter than he mentions and the quality of the pictures is fantastic (Another concern I had as my old samsung had pretty poor quality pictures in my opinion compared to say the nokia) The options and slide show of the photos on your main screen is also really good.
Another good thing with this phone is you get lots of accessories with it which saves you no end of cash (For example you get a handy little cover for your phone) By the way, if you have ever had the old ipod 80g (The slightly fatter version before they brought out the longer thinner one) You can use the cover for this phone. I still had one in the house and it fitted perfectly so if you don't want to use the pouch provided (Which clips onto your phone) you can go for this one)
Cant think of anything to complain about this phone. The battery lasts for days (another thing that I was concerned about as I read on a few review sites that the battery ran out after 24 hours. I can only assume they have been using it to death for a day and then complained when the battery ran out) Text usage is good as well as because you are using a big screen the actual button are large and easy to use (Especially useful for someone with larger fingers) I dont think I have had any problems with finding anything on this phone though some other reviewers have (As I say I have used samsung phones before so maybe thats why)
Things I have really liked about this phone. Photos (Much better than previous samsung phones). Large screen (Buttons bigger very user friendly).
Just a not to anyone who has a problem finding anything on this phone, you do know there is a fast find option on the side of the screen dont you? You can also drag and drop other options into this if you want.
