Touchscreen with added benefits
With the F490 model, Samsung integrates the touchscreen technology which has been made famous by the Apple iPhone. The design is a couple steps above the Apple iPhone in terms of style and it doesn’t feel as bulky. The slim design, being only 11.8mm wide makes the F490 easy to slip into your pocket. The case is also completely black, which gives the phone a very austere air, dropping the black and silver design of the iPhone. Sadly this phone doesn’t have the QWERTY keyboard that the other recently released touch phone, the Voyager uses, but the great sensitivity of this phone makes up for it.
Samsung certainly hasn’t skimped out on the powerful features that you find on their other recently released models. Nowadays cell phones fall into to two camps. Either they are full fledged multimedia phones that incorporate lots of memory, smooth video playback, and a powerful camera. Or they have the touchscreen technology and abandon all other multimedia phone features.
Well, the F490 has a 5 Megapixel camera that can rate against the most up to date multimedia phones. Though it doesn’t have a large internal memory function, the MicroDS slot ensures that you can hold all the pictures and media that you want to have it on the go.
The menu system might not be a colorful as the iPhone’s but it has a visual quality that is very official looking with the cool blue lines that highlight which icon you choose. This menu system is very easy to use, and will have you playing mp3 files and browsing your photos in no time.
