Summary: If your going to purchase this phone, be aware that it is in fact a UK manufactured cell phone by the phone company "Vodafone"... Therefore it actually has Vodafone printed on the front of the phone as well as the Samsung writing and also it has UK wall plug in charger (Overstock do provide a plug adapter though for the US plugs).
Excerpt: Ever since i lost my first Samsung in a cab coming home, i vowed to grab me another. However, its been 2 years since my SGH-E was driven away and newer models from Samsung haven't really got my attention. So i brought a HTC touch. A window based operating system, with touch flow innovation (a product which launched in battle to take down I-phone). And that was my first PDA... My HTC lasted 6 grueling months, with multiple screen + USB port problems....
Excerpt: I think i'll buy this phone... it's true that it have some problems, but i don't care! It's nice, well designed, and it got a QWERTY keyboard-what's very important to me! The web browser is also great and very user-friendly! So... I wanna see how it works with my own eyes!
Excerpt: Ok, I thought long and hard about this phone, and even tho I went out on a jump when I bought it, im glad I did. I was supprised, i usually heard bad things about them. But so far i've had no problems with mine, and its now 4months old. Brilliant phone, amazing interface, and when used with Vodafone, it is brilliant for things such as music station and web browsing!
Excerpt: The good review is definitely from someone with inside interests. This phone appears to have decent features, but the touch is awful in comparison with the iPod or iPhone - slow, unresponsive and inaccurate. It would often freeze completely requiring a phone restart for me. The camera too is particular poor for a 3mp headliner - nearly always noisy. Email client completely nonsensical. I will be getting mine replaced under warranty and then will ebay for another phone.
Excerpt: I'm going along with the first review of this phone. The one below me almost sounds like a commercial for it in the last few sentences. I found the os to be incredibly laggy and slow! It's not user friendly at all and it's difficult to find and navigate to things. The touch pad is just plain terrible. As previously mentioned you have to hit buttons numerous times to get them to work.
Excerpt: Don't know what the other review before was on about for the most part. The camera could be better - slow to focus/not good in poor light (everything else camera-wise is good though), there can be a few too many key presses/screen touches to do (a few) tasks, but on the whole the F700 is an excellent phone - fast friendly (award winning) user interface, great feature set and slick styling/good form factor.
Excerpt: So I bought the F700/Qbowl on Vodafone here in Germany. I'm gonna list pros and cons first then summarize afterwards. Pros- -Expandable Memory -Extra back panel included -3G Hsdpa and Edge for when you're in the boonies (bavaria) -Some address book improvements with ability to add more fields -Qwerty keypad works well Cons- -Terrible battery life, tried two of them and got less than 8hours stand by.
