Samsung F300 Ultra Music review

 

A unique dual-faced music mobile tries to play it both ways

Music transfer options ; 2-megapixel camera ; Daring to be different

Dual-screen adds complications ; Unresponsive menu ; Poor battery life

Worth a try, but ultimately the two-side, two-screen arrangement only hinders functionality

Samsung SGH-F300 mobile phone

 

You want music and you want to stay connected. What most of us do is carry two boxes; an MP3 player and a mobile phone. Samsung seeing the popularity of the Sony Ericsson Walkman brand wants to offer us its solution to the problem in the guise of the...

Fully fledged MP3 player, 1GB microSD card in the box

Why, why, why?

Every so often a device comes along where its creators haven't really thought about the "why", but just the "because we can" and the Samsung F300 is the epitome of this.

Samsung SGH-F300

 

Samsung's two faced SGH-F300 is a push-me pull-you style phone/music player. Does it do much, or do little for Sandra?

Samsung F300 Preview

 

The world's first two-faced phone welds together a touch-sensitive MP3 player, mobile and 2MP camera. But can it be trusted?

Excellent music player. Supports PlaysForSure. Very thin

Switching between sides can be fiddly. Poor battery life

Samsung - SGH-F300

 

We all know about phones that want to be music players, but the chances are you've never seen one quite as confused as the Samsung SGH-F300. It is so confused, in fact, that its has two ...

Designing a device that is a mobile phone on one side and a music player on the other is a clever wheeze, and had Samsung made it work properly the SGH-F300 could well have been a winner. But there are too many flaws for us to really like this hybrid...

Samsung F300 Ultra Music

 

Undaunted by the imminent arrival of the iPhone and awesome presence of Sony Ericsson's Walkman mobile brand, Samsung has decided to turn its attentions to the mobile music arena with a head-turning, dual-faced edition of the Ultra

Music transfer options, 2-megapixel camera, Daring to be different

Dual-screen adds complications, Unresponsive menu, Poor battery life

Samsung F300

 

Samsung is no stranger to mobile innovation and its latest music phone, the F300, flaunts the very first dual-sided flipper design…

The F300 is expertly built and its music player sounds dynamic

A weak phone, temperamental touch-sensitive controls and an unintuitive music player interface blight this striking handset

We wanted to like the F300, but it falls short of expectations. A radical convergence experiment gone wrong.

Samsung F300 (Ultra Music)

 

In fact Samsung totally revised its market strategy early in 2006 " already in February they had a shaped and plain agenda allowing to initiate development of a range of all-round new solutions, arriving in the market not as concept-models, though, yet...

The pursuit of slim-and-sleek curves and shapes of handsets has brought to live numerous top-notch approaches and tricks that might pop up in the upcoming models as well. The F300's thickness is 9.4 mm which is a world of difference compared to the...

Samsung F300 review: A phone like no other

 

The famous South Korean manufacturer has stopped being afraid of making experiments. Once it used to only make silver clamshells. Today, however, the situation has changed significantly. Samsung already has a fancy portfolio including several new, very...

unusual dual face construction ; only 9.4 mm thickness ; 2 megapixel camera ; video in QVGA resolution ; 100 MB internal memory, microSD memory card slot ; FM radio ; Bluetooth with A2DP ; GPRS and EDGE both Class 10 ; practical case with integrated...

not so user-friendly controls ; the battery in the phone is not replaceable ; the "phone" part has a 2 line display ; sensor button is difficult to control and much too sensitive ; no email client ; camera pictures cannot be saved directly to the...

Both sides of the phone are covered with plenty of control elements and protecting covers. On the left you will see a combined connector for earphones, charger, and data cable. Unfortunately, it is not a miniUSB connector, but a standard Samsung one....
