Review: Samsung Epix

Form Basics Extras Wrap Up Comments  2  

Menus Calls/Contacts Messaging  

The Epix runs Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. Neither Samsung nor AT&T has bothered to cover it up with any sort of overlay or other user interface to make dealing with it easier or different. You get the bare bones WinMo experience with the Epix.

The home screen offers the standard Today layout, with application shortcuts running horizontally across the top, and customized calendar appointments, notes, email and other user content displayable below.

The left and right soft keys let you access the Phone and Contacts application, respectively. Hitting the Start key (next to the mouse) pulls down the main WinMo menu. If you scroll down to Programs, you canfind all of the Epix's features. It takes you to a grid of menu options. This is where you access the majority of the Epix's applications. It is only slightly more intuitive to use than many proprietary menu systems that are built into phones, if only because we are all somewhat familiar with the way Microsoft builds its menu systems.

Once you select a menu application or folder, it generally opens up to another grid of applications or a plain list with black letters on a white background. No fancy dancing icons here. Just utilitarian grids and lists.
