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...

Review: Samsung SGH-P520 Armani Phone

 

Samsung's SGH-P520 Armani phone is a finger touch based cell phone that is good looking, wears a famous name, and is no larger than a few credit cards stacked together. We check it out in this hands-on review, complete with videos.

Samsung Giorgio Armani SGH-P520

 

Luxury branding is reflected in the sophisticated styling of the Giorgio Armani phone

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

The main draw of this phone will however be its highly attractive design and fashion house branding, which for many will be the deciding factor beyond any usability concerns

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

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

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.
