Samsung i7First Impressions Review

 

The Samsung i7 is a hybrid device: part digital camera, part video player, and part MP3 player. The camera side of the device is built around a 7.2-megapixel, 1/2.5 inch CCD sensor twinned with a rotating 3-inch LCD touch screen. The way it works is...

- Clear, bright screen. - On-screen menus are clearly labeled and well designed. - Media player features are adequate for casual use. - Wide ISO range -450 MB of internal memory included

- Screen doesn't always lock into place when rotating - Media player features are rather basic - Touch screen system was unreliable on the tested model - Accessing some features involved a lot of button pressing- Limited max aperture

The Samsung i7 combines the features of a digital still camera, audio player, and video player into one small, well-designed device. However, it (like most hybrid devices) isn't that great at any of the tasks it performs. We weren't able to test the...

Highly Recommended!

The Samsung i7 is much more than just a simple point and shoot digital camera. The feature list is seemingly endless - 7.2 megapixel still camera, personal media player, music centre, camcorder, portable hard drive, text viewer and voice recorder - all...

The Samsung i7 is a winning combination of camera, music and video player that could easily replace multiple, separate devices, just so long as you remember that it's main strength is the photographic element. If you don't already own a dedicated music...

Samsung i7 camera. Pointless having a rotating LCD?

 

The new digital camera of Samsung's, the i7, is not only a camera. It's both the combination of a digital camera and a portable media player (PMP). As a

Samsung i7 digital camera review

 

It's taken me some time to get to play with the i7 but it's worth a look since it is a very interesting camera indeed, or rather, it's a very interesting multimedia device. And anyone familiar with Samsung camera products will know the company is a...

Build and styling, simple controls, massive feature set

Sluggish performance: slow zoom, slow AF, slow menu and device adjustment and operation via GUI, shutter lag, excessive noise and detail loss in ISO 400 and above images

The Samsung i7 has a mouthwatering specification no matter what way you look at it, be it shooting stills, listening to your music and watching or capturing video

Do you really need more than photos on your digital camera?

When is a digital camera not a digital camera? When it's an MP3 and video player, too. In fact, Samsung's i7 is more of a personal media player with a...

All-in-one device; can play videos and MP3s as well as take photos; touch screen menu interface

Poor photo quality, has a 2.5mm headphone jack instead of 3.5mm, screen is uncomfortable for watching videos

If you're after a decent digital camera, there are better options on the market than this one. If you want an MP3 and video player that can also take a photo here or there, then the i7 can be considered, but it's not a high quality product.

The Samsung i7 is fun and unusual, but the twist-screen gimmick may be lost on some. Camera, MP3 and multimedia playback functions are from the no-frills shelf, but save you juggling multiple devices. The high price tag, however, is only justified if...

Huge touchscreen ; Novelty value ; Competent camera ; Large memory

No frills devices ; Lacklustre tour guide

The camera is a solid performer, if a bit slow, while the other features are functional at least. The screen is large and the touchscreen interface intuitive. If convenience and a bit of novelty are what you're looking for, the i7 is worth a look

It's another flawless-looking Samsung – with a twist. A revolving screen. We just had to take it for a spin…

Gotta love that revolving screen – but remind us again what exactly the point of it is

The Samsung i7 is fun and unusual, but the twist-screen gimmick may be lost on some.The high price tag, however, is only justified if you value convenience and novelty value over great pictures.

Large 3-inch touchscreen ; Novelty value ; Competent camera ; Generous internal memory

No frills devices ; Lacklustre tour guide

The camera is a solid performer, if a bit slow, while the other features are functional at least. The screen is large and the touchscreen interface intuitive. If convenience and a bit of novelty are what you're looking for, the i7 is worth a look.

TIPA Award!
