Samsung's Style Phones 2007

Intro Armani Serenata i550 Gleam G800 * Comments  13

Hands-on with Samsung's Gleam, Armani, Serenata, i550, plus a video tour of the 5-megapixel G800.

At a recent Samsung event, I had the opportunity to get some hands-on time with a few of Samsung's new flagship phones for Europe. The interesting ones are all tri-band GSM models we wouldn't really recommend for use in the US (though the adventurous could use them with T-Mobile). However, each is a very interesting flagship phone that may make its way to US shores in a different incarnation at some point. At the very least, they show the direction Samsung is heading with some of its designs and technology.

The Gleam is a beautiful phone; pictures don't do it justice. Those who like the Razr form-factor, especially the pink Razr V3C/M's shiny metal keypad, will likely also be delighted with the Gleam's slim shininess. Kudos to Samsung for this aesthetically pleasing handset.
Keypad is all plastic as the rest of the phone.
shiny = fingerprints
i just purchased the gleam from verizon wireless and it is a really great phone; call quality is amazing, keypad has a great feel and nice size for text messaging. the camera is really great and the themes are a nice change from the regular verizon me...

samsung is cool

they come out with a new phone every hour on the hour.
Armani - Drooling

B&O - Laughing

Gleam - Rolling Eyes

The Gleam still looks like a Samsung phone. I understand the need for a distinct form and style for a phone, but I am not a fan of the Samsung style. Beyond that the Armani looks the sexiest an...

Didnt really care for reading about the phone but the design of it looks almost like it was completely copied from the sony ericsson k610i..
I completely agree, se rip off for sure.
