Review – Beyonce’s Phone – Samsung F308


When I first saw the TV commercial, I thought the phone was a bit cheesy with the dual-face design.  Tried out the real thing at Broadway store yesterday and I didn’t like the phone interface at all.  The screen size far to small to read off anything.  But fear not,  the dual-face design which will take sometime to get used to as pointed out in the review here from Mobile01, can let you switch from the phone interface to the 2.1″ screen on the MP3 interface for the phone, message and camera functions.  This make use of the larger screen real estate is clever but clumsy at times.  But still nonetheless much better than the small screen.  The MP3 is one of the best, beats the so-called “Walkman” phones easily.  Only bummer is that I didn’t have a chance to check out the leather battery pack.

  6. i have the white one…although it looks nicer than the black one….it leaves figerprints too easily…went the store to change it..and got a completely new one….this phone has great sound quality, and amazingly, it has a 2 megapixel camera and can shoot videos.the downside is that not all phones have radio..some areas don’t support radios, so the phone cxan’r pick up any signals, and your radio is useless. the phone also has no games, so this phone is mainly for MP3 and phoning. personally, i give this phone an 8 out of 10 i got it for $2400 hk dollars, so thats about canadian$340 so its quite cheap for such a good phone
