Samsung F480 TouchWiz


I've often hailed Samsung's F480 TouchWiz as being a sure contender for the role of 'i-Killer'. Having had an opportunity to test it over the last week or so, here's my opinion on whether or not it's the best candidate yet. However, please understand...

At a price at Rs 20,899, this would have been a great phone if it weren’t for those silly issues. All I can say is I hope some of the features that didn't work for me work for you.

Samsung F480 Tocco: Video Unboxing & First Impressions


After a Memorial Day delay, Samsung's F480 Tocco has been delivered and we're ready to show you the SlashGear unboxing video and share our first-impressions of the touchscreen handset. It's one of the more unusual unboxings; this is the first time I've...

So far, then, I’m impressed. We’ve deliberately held back on comparing the Tocco to rival cellphones until we’ve had a chance to spend more time with it; check back for our full review to see how it holds up to the competition. There are plenty more...

Samsung F480 review: Touchdown!


To pick up where we left, prepare to meet the next bestseller by Samsung. If you think Samsung F480 is not up to such a challenge you might want to think again. The compact touch-operated handset has every chance of becoming the next best thing...

Ample 2.8" 262K touchscreen color display of QVGA resolution ; Touch-operated flash UI ; 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash ; Camera comes with face detection and wide dynamic range ; 3G with HSDPA ; Great design and high quality...

Tri-band only ; Display legibility suffers under direct sunlight ; No landscape mode and no virtual QWERTY keyboard ; Fingerprint magnet ; Inadequate flash for the camera ; Video recording capabilities max out at QVGA resolution

The Armani phone is probably one of the bitterest rivals of Samsung F480. As we see it, the … well… designer handset has very little chance against the F480. The device we are currently reviewing is far more capable and its interface is well above the...

Samsung F480 mobile phone review


Samsung Company continues release of unusual phones and it is not quite easy for everyone to get accustomed to them. Yes, there comes a successor of P520 and F490 models, a Samsung F480 with completely (or almost) touch control system. Of course...

Samsung F480


The Samsung F480 is a similar version of the Samsung Armani phone. Basically, if you take off the Armani case of the latter, you have the SGH-480 in your hands. The SGH-F480 is an extraordinary fashion phone included in the "Style Line" of Samsung....

The best feature of the Samsung SGH-F480 would be its TouchWiz UI technology which is proven to be very innovative, easy and fun to use. The widgets attribute that it has will really give you the time of your life. You can drag it as often as you like....

The least desirable feature of the Samsung F480 would be its small face touch screen user interface. With its small size, it's a bit hard to compose text messages. This is since the letters would be a bit small to press with your fingertips. You may...

The Samsung F480 is really a mobile fashion statement in its own sense. It has a lot of features that makes it very convenient for business transactions and communication purposes. It has the technology that can simplify your life and save you money....
