Samsung TouchWiz package

The Samsung SGH-F480 TouchWiz mobile handset comes in a dark-blue box with various removable segments that fit like a jigsaw puzzle. Besides the TouchWiz itself, you will find the following items in the box: a battery charger, headset, USB cable and a Samsung PC Suite software CD. The manual is available in both English and Dutch. The lid on the back of the phone, with behind it the battery and the SIM card, can be replaced by an included leather cover. When applying it to the cell phone, it fits in perfectly with the Samsung TouchWiz and they look like one device.

Samsung F-480 cell phone design

It is difficult not to fall for the charms of the glossy black design of the Samsung TouchWiz. Thanks to its dimensions of 3.8 x 2 x 0.43 inches the device is thin and handy; features that guarantee a high score in my opinion. The front of the Samsung F480 is characterized by the bright touch screen and three additional buttons. The housing, and in particular the square that serves for listening, is neatly finished with a silver lining. The camera lens and flash are positioned on the back of the Samsung F480 that is covered with a sleek metal casing. Quick buttons have been placed on the side of the device and allow for easy and quick volume adjustment, taking a picture and locking the cell phone. However, seeing as the 'hold' button is positioned in a rather accessible spot at the top, it might lead to accidental unlocking of the device in your pocket.
