Samsung F400 review

 

Can Samsung's pop-up music mobile get your party started?

Pop-up Bang & Olufsen loudspeaker ; 3-megapixel camera ; HSDPA high-speed data ; Decent music player quality ; 3.5mm headphone socket ; Good earphones supplied ; Music scroll wheel ; FM radio ; MicroSD card expansion

Music controls could have been better thought out ; Internal memory small for music phone

It looks fairly average, but hides a host of good things, including a good-sounding music player, solidly capable camera and fast internet connection

Samsung F400 mobile phone - First Look - Pocket-lint

 

If the kids on the back of the bus are going to annoy you with their breakbeat tunes, at least this way they are going to do it with a sound you can appreciate

Built-in stereo speaker from Bang & Olusfen, HSDPA, 3-megapixel camera

Not much on the music front

The F400 see Samsung really trying to tackle the Sony Ericsson Walkman range head-on and the team-up with Bang & Olusfen is only going to help.

Samsung's SGH-F400 is an interestingly designed slider that's had the Bang & Olufsen treatment.

Samsung's music phone track record has been more miss than hit but its new muso, the F400, looks geared for glory

At last, a user-friendly Samsung music phone with the licks to deliver a big audio performance

With Bang & Olufsen lending its ICEpower audio technology to the F400, the audio experience is of the utmost quality

The three-megapixel camera produces nothing more than average pics

Samsung F400 review

 

We review Samsung's latest mid range music phone, the F400. It's stuffed to the gills with impressive music mods, including a sliding dual speaker and Bang & Olufsen ICEpower technology. But is it good enough to pass mobile musical muster?

Music player sounds impressive ; Built in speaker is surprisingly powerful ; Integrated 3.5mm headphone jack ; Brisk HSDPA download speeds

Chassis is a little overweight ; Sliding speaker design provokes anti-social behaviour

The F400 ticks all the right boxes for a mid-range music phone and is undoubtedly Samsung's most tuneful effort so far

If you're looking for a phone that is capable of producing some cracking audio, then this could be the phone for you. Just don't expect a decent camera to boot.
