Samsung F500 Power Pet Easy review


More technology than almost every other vacuum cleaner, but it still copes with the basics

Samsung F500


Of all major makers, Samsung is the first that has tried to cooperate with DivX, and the handset in question is only the first go, which is likely to be followed by more solutions. It is unclear whether other manufacturers will follow in the footstep...

Samsung has already made it a rule to include Picsel Viewer into its phones – this app allows the user to view MS Office documents and PDF only, no editing. Also, with this viewer you can zoom in/out and rotate documents. An important notice – unlike...

Samsung F500 3G Phone


The F500 Ultra Video 3G mobile phone has been designed by Samsung with entertainment in mind. The handset has a unique & stylish design which allows the user to use the double sided controls to suit their operating needs. The reversible controls can be...

The F500 is a great example of a device that promises so much, yet ultimately fails to deliver. It's a nice idea, but in an already overpopulated mobile market, the F500 has too many flaws to make an impact.

DivX support, included DivX converter software, great multimedia display, case doubles as a back-up battery

Design, implementation and cross-over between phone and multimedia functions, expensive, steep learning curve, no 3.5mm headphone jack, battery not removable

Samsung F500


Run your eyes down the specs list for the tri-band, HSDPA F500 and you'll probably think it sounds like a top-notch device. So did we, until we got the chance to use one.

DivX files look great and software is easy to use ; Comes with a backup battery and TV-Out cable

Too expensive ; Phone screen is too small ; Media player interface is not intuitive ; Daggy look

Reviewer's note: You'll notice that our Samsung F500 video reflects a more complimentary view of the phone. This was our first look at the device, before we had a chance to use it daily for two weeks. Now that it's been a fortnight, this is our final...

Samsung SGH-F500 Review


The Ultra video can really catch the eye by its dual face design, as well as by the rotating lower part. It is indeed a terrific concept for this type of device and serving perfectly the goal of making impression, but we regret to say that its...

Samsung SGH F500


The Samsung Ultra Video SGH-F500 is the ultimate personal multimedia device. It is the first phone to support the DivX codec, allowing users to view a large array of video content including MPEG-4, H.264, WMV and AVI files. It also has a PMP function...

Good music and video playback; long battery life

Screen still too small; text still difficult to read on the phone; weak camera; uses proprietary headphones
