Samsung Armani review: Mobile haute couture

 

If there's one thing the Samsung Armani phone has in abundance, it most definitely is style. Slim, compact and high-tech, the fully touch-operated Armani phone is not just the final touch to your look - it's the finish with a flourish. Anyway, with us...

Samsung Armani camera phone review

 

Not only is the Giorgio Armani mobile phone a stylish device, it is also delivered in style. The black box has a silky feel, like the cover of the user's guide. A leather pouch that folds out comes with the cell phone to protect it. When you shut the...

Samsung P520 Armani mobile phone

 

Italian fashion heavyweight Giorgio Armani is the latest to join an ever growing list of designer and boutique labels getting in on some mobile phone action. So far, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Levi's, Ted Baker, Mandarin Duck, Elle and Cath Kidston have...

Ultra-stylish, slimline and compact, well made handset

Erratic touch sensitivity, slow memory card processing and no 3G or Wi-Fi

Fashion phones are all about style and the Armani phone has that in spades.

Samsung P520 Armani review

 

Giorgio Armani is the latest label to join the happening mobile scene. Will it fall into the same style-over-substance pitfall as some its fellow fashionistas?

The luxury Armani phone flaunts supermodel looks but produces a glamour model performance

Giorgio Armani Samsung SGH-P520 review

 

Samsung gets in on the fashion label phone scene with this stylish show-stealer

Stylish design ; Thin and compact shell ; 2.6-inch touchscreen control with haptic feedback ; Fashionable extras supplied

Text composition implementation poor ; No 3G or Wi-Fi ; No regular headphone socket for upgrading ; Camera performance could be better

A slick and elegant design will be more than enough for the crowds who are drawn in by the Giorgio Armani name, but the dodgy interface will deter other possible users.

Samsung Giorgio Armani

 

The Armani's sleek and strudy appearance belies its lightweight feature set, the most notably of which is no 3G.

Compact size ; Sturdy casing

Lack of 3G ; Internet browser could be a lot better

This review comes from our CNET counterparts in the UK. Samsung have told us that the Armani phone may not be released in Australia, and as such no local pricing is available.

Samsung P520 Giorgio Armani

 

Now what a creation from Samsung! The P520 Giorgio Armani will make any owner really stand out in the crowd. It has a large 2.6 inch touch sensitive screen and weighs a very light 85g. This handset really is a stunner it features a 3 mega-pixel camera...

The Samsung Armani achieves what it set out to do, a simply glorious looking handset

Relying on GPRS and EDGE connections to surf the net requires a degree of patience
