Comment: people say is justba iphone killer when thee iphone is rubbish...
the iphone has a 2mp camera and bad signal but the samsung has a 5mp camera and has the signal of a normal phone
samsung has had time to come up with phones and had a lot of experiance but apple iphone is the first of its kind.
all together the f490 is a great phone
WELL DONE SAMSUNG :)
Good: Stlye, Performance and Generally Works Well.
Bad: Camera shutter speed.
Comment: Very stylish and sleek phone, easy to use with all the features you'd expect. Although no radio?!
Good camera except it takes a couple of seconds more than expected to take which is annoying at times.
Texting is easy and also predictive text is also very good.
Scrolling could be easier but once used to scrolling it is easier.
Overall a fantastic phone.
Good: Flawless touchscreen, free 1gb memory card, loudspeaker
Comment: This phone is awesome, easily better than the Viewty.
