Samsung SGH-F500 Review


At the end of last year Samsung presented two differently oriented slim devices: for music and video respectively. This production line deserved the name Dual Face, given by the manufacturer, and it really caught our eyes with its innovative design: a phone on one side and a personal media player – on the other. However, the overall dimensions of the units did not increase despite the combination, so they retained their slim appearance.

Today we are going to review one of them, namely the model whose purpose is video playback – Samsung SGH-F500 the Ultra Video. This is the first phone capable of playing video content that has been compressed by DivX and xVID.

The kit is placed in a box, which opens like a book and its content is as follows:

  • Samsung SGH-F500 Ultra Video
  • Charger
  • Stereo Handsfree
  • Data cable
  • TV Out Cable
  • Cover battery pack
  • CD with software
  • Micro SD card (1GB) with adapter to SD
  • User guide

In case you wish to simultaneously protect the device and prolong the duration of its autonomous work, you can rely on the help from the Cover battery pack. This is a combination of a case and a battery, which has been integrated into it; indeed, we have seen something of the sort in Samsung devices before, for instance in P300/P310. What is interesting here, is the phone display indication of the charge level of this battery as well, thus informing the user on both ones.
