Samsung’s Social Hub feature is here too, pulling in your Facebook, Twitter, e-mail and text updates into one section. It doesn’t display your updates in a single feed though, à la HTC’s FriendStream, and you need to open each app individually – it’s better than nothing, but not by much. The camera includes smile detection and panorama mode, as well as a basic digital zoom.
Picture quality isn’t bad considering the lowish resolution of the camera, but for video the quality to 320 x 240 recording at 15fps. It tends to look a little jerky, but it won’t disgrace itself on YouTube. Movies look less than sharp on the screen but the music player is intuitive to use. There’s an FM radio on board too, but like Samsung's Galaxy Fit, you’ll need to supply your own headphones.

"looks more swish than it actually is"
The 21st Century in a nutshell.
Since when has a £100 mobile been cheap and cheerful. £20 is a budget phone.
Plus The Samsung Europa has GPS, WiFi, Android (ok a crap 2MP camera) and you can get it for £65.
My San Fran
My OSF has poor signal reception, bad call quality, rubbish camera, abominable battery life and dreadful build and reliability.
But that's all OK because you can load modded ROMs on it and play Angry Birds.
It's seriously the worst phone I ever had. People who like it are only using it as a Gameboy substitute.
Did no-one tell them Nokia abandoned that font? I don't like it much, but it is quite legible when squished on a small phone screen.
Will it run iPlayer audio?
That's all that really counts.
I don't think it does.
