Samsung Memoir Review

 

Veteran smartphone users will realize that the Memoir is just an average phone with a very nice camera.

Review: Samsung Memoir

 

You like the nightlife? You like to boogie? So does Samsung's new Memoir camera phone. If you have trouble remembering your nocturnal escapades, fear not:...

Far ahead of most phones with 8-megapixel shots. Cool touchscreen and accelerometer helps you shoot or view pictures. Compact, pocket-friendly shape, even for hipsters in painted-on jeans

Vampiric light sensitivity makes for washed-out shots. Slow to focus, shoot and recover. E-mail functions are even slower. The screen is hard to see in sunlight. Lens cover doesn’t close all the time, so the lens can get dusty

Samsung Memoir - Review of the Samsung Memoir

 

Sharp 8-MP Camera, Great shots outdoors and indoors, Works with Flickr, Photobucket, and other sharing sites, Integrated GPS, Earbuds and 1GB microSD Card included

No optical zoom, Expensive, Poor Web browser, Lacks Wi-Fi, Proprietary headphone jack

Three keyboards are available, an alphanumeric one in portrait mode, a full QWERTY in landscape, and a character-recognition option (if you feel like drawing on the screen with your finger). The device's accelerometer alerts the Memoir when it's...

Memoir

 

Until recently, phone buyers in the United States had to splurge on an expensive unlocked handset to get one with a camera offering more than 5 megapixels. Enter the Samsung Memoir, a touch-screen smart phone with an 8-megapixel camera available at a...

Excellent camera features Intuitive touch interface

No Wi-Fi Mixed call quality

Camera-phone fans will love the Memoir, but I'm not so sure about everyone else. Its average multimedia features won't impress audiophiles, and its lack of Wi-Fi and an app store won't satisfy those folks craving a handset with smart-phone...

Camera-phone fans will love the Memoir, but its lack of Wi-Fi and mediocre multimedia features disappoint.

Samsung Memoir Review

 

I've always wondered why we call certain devices "cameraphones" when they don't have cameras worthy of the name. Until recently, most mobile phones had woefully inadequate cameras -- something you could use in a pinch, and handy to have in your pocket...

Fabulous camera takes great photos ; Pictures can be uploaded directly to a variety of sites ; Excellent digital zoom allows you to get closer to the action and take better shots ; External speaker is loud enough to share your music with friends and...

Good voice quality on calls, but not great ; Virtual keyboard could be more responsive ; Web browser surprisingly slow (though that could be a network issue in my area) ; Battery life may be an issue if you are an extremely heavy user who takes lots of...

The fact that it's also a phone that helps you to keep in touch with far-flung loved ones is just a bonus

Samsung Memoir

 

The Samsung Memoir is the first phone available from a U.S. carrier with an 8-megapixel camera, complemented by an auto-focus lens and a Xenon flash. Other features include a 2.97-inch touch screen, GPS, Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR, and a microSD card slot....

From the front, the Memoir looks like your average touch screen phone. From the back, it looks exactly like a dedicated digital camera, complete with an automatically-retracting lens cover. Despite the two disparate looks, the Memoir still manages to...
