Samsung Touchwiz (Samsung F480) vs iPhone | Specs and Features

When iPhone 3G was released on the market, I was really eager to get one. However the cost is really too high for me to handle that is why I look for alternative touch screen phone that is almost the same with iPhone but much cheaper. That is why I found this new phone from Samsung called Touchwiz or commonly known as Samsung F480. I tried to consider getting a Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic but lately discard the idea. What I like with the Samsung unit was its cheaper compared to iPhone and Omnia but it seems equalled or even surpass the features of the mentioned phones. Here are the basic specification of the Touchwiz:
  • Full touch screen with 2.8 LCD screen (iPhone has 3.5 touch screen)
  • 5-megapixels camera with Autofocus and Power LED (iPhone has 2.0 MP only)
  • FM Radio
  • Size and Weight: 98.4 x 55 x 11.6 mm / 100.6g (iPhone has 115.5 x 62.1 x 12.3 mm / 133g)
  • Supports USB v2.0, 3G, Bluetooth but not WLAN and Infrared
  • Internal memory: 232 MB
  • External Memory: microSD upto 8 GB
  • Price Range: $300 - $500. Price in the Philippines, based on search, is about Php12,000 to Php15,000 which is compared to the prize of iPhone in the country that reaches up to almost Php40,000.00
Well, I really love to get a Samsung F480 but my problem is it is not available in my place (Capiz) yet and I need to ask a friend to buy it for me in Manila. I am afraid to buy in Ebay because I don't have any experience purchasing online through the said site. But later, I might consider to buy there if in case my friend fails to find available unit in his place. How about you, what do you think of Samsung Touchwiz (SF480), is it worth to buy?
