Samsung SGH-F400 music phone
Bang & Olufsen speakers on a handset? Oh yes.
Review Some phones get all the luck. Some get to be called Soul, or Tocco - we found out it's Italian for 'touch' - or even Omnia. But others get lumbered with a less emotive moniker. Like F400.
The Samsung handset is fairly standard to look at, with silvered sides and a glossy black front. At 17mm thick, it's chunky, but then it feels a little lighter than it looks - it's 108g. Despite this, it doesn't feel cheap – it's a respectably-built mid-range device.
Samsung's SGH-F400: good-sized keyboard with well-defined, responsive buttons
On the side is a Micro SDHC memory card slot which will allow you to boost the meagre 20MB of on-board memory by up to 8GB. Next to it, you'll find volume buttons, a power/headphone socket, and dedicated buttons for both music player and camera.
The phone slides open easily - perhaps a little too easily if you plan on keeping it in a jeans pocket - and opens with a nice, cushioned thunk. The keypad revealed is a good size with well-defined, responsive buttons – nothing too clever or fancy; perfect for texting really.
The averaged-sized 2.2in, 262,000-colour screen is clear, bright and offers excellent definition, though it's not the easiest to read in bright sunlight thanks to its glossy covering.
Let us know when you get the pulse generator ready to market. That will be THE new gotta-have-it for the goes-out-in-public crowd!
Mars because that's a good place to send Da Yoof until they evolve some manners. Shouldn't take more than a few million geologic periods...by which time we'll have better kit than this, I hope.
NO. just for the love of <non specific deity>, NO.
people DON'T want effing speaker phone functionality. they DON'T want to be forced to listen to the so called muzak of socialy ignorant Eff-tards on the tube/train/bus.
"excuse me, do you have headphones for that? you do? would you mind using them please? oh you've stabbed me".
i'm working on a pocket sized waveguided EM pulse generator that can take out music playing phones from the moronic generation.
all i want to know, is how much Samsung paid B&O for the use of their name on this POS.
It comes with plasticine dogs, does it?
