Samsung F480 review

Samsung is an innovative company, continuously meeting the diverse demands of the consumer. The five design centres worldwide, and the inspiration derived from the life style of today’s consumer, make it possible for models like the Samsung F480 TouchWiz to be invented. The Samsung F480 TouchWiz is a compact mobile phone with a touch screen that will certainly appeal to those users with a touch for style. With the Samsung F480 you have a 5 Megapixel digital camera, an MP3 player and an FM radio are at hand.

The integrated 5 Megapixel digital camera with LED flash is found on the back of the Samsung TouchWiz. It isn’t the number of pixels that makes this a special digital camera, despite the fact that 5 Megapixels greatly suffice for a cameraphone; it's the special functions like auto focus, image stabilization, face detection and my personal favourite; Smile shot, that make the camera of the TouchWiz a technically high quality item. The Smile Shot function makes the shutter only release when a person in the composition smiles.

Viewing photos on the Samsung F480
Samsung has come up with a nice mechanism to facilitate viewing pictures. When you view a picture and you press the arrow on top of your screen, a bar appears with thumbnails of all the pictures in the album. It allows you to scroll through the album to find the right picture and pressing the thumbnail again, makes the photo appear on the screen. You can even gain access to various files by selecting the icon 'file up'. Two points for improvement on the next phone: sometimes the bar does not respond and scrolling is rather slow.

Simply striking is the luxurious, compact design of the Samsung TouchWiz. People that adore trendy novelties will not be able to ignore this device. The bright, heat-sensitive LCD touch screen is very responsive and a joy to work with. The menu structure is logical and scrolling through the menu is accompanied by nice graphic effects and sounds. Some options don't even require the menu, thanks to the widgets in the standby mode of the cell phone. These widgets can be dragged to any place on the screen and this way you can personalize the start screen of the Samsung F480. Read the full Samsung F480 review on LetsGoMobile.
