Very Good

The phone is not that bad. the Quality, Durability, Usability is good. the music player is nice, it's unique music player caught my attention. the touch screen is responsive. If you want your F490 to be a fingerprint magnet, attach a screen protector. although, the phone can only handle 4Gb and the display is not that sharp, but I guess its enough for me, I still prefer the F490 than the F480. Thank you.

very good

The impressing features on this phone are the screen camera and croix interface.The screen is responsive and so are touch buttons at the bottom of the phone.The 3.5mm jack is very convenient for music and video fans.The drawbacs for this phone are very minor such as the memory only goes up to 4gb and their is no qwerty keyboard for messaging but i can live with that .The design is very slik and the phone is very thin.
