Excerpt: Samsung, the Korean based technology heavyweight, has come forward and joined the followers of the little green robot, with the Samsung Galaxy. What we like The best bit about this phone is that it looks like a Samsung phone should. From the trademark 'OK' button, to the surrounding navigation button and 4 soft keys, all underneath that familiar Samsung wording. The Galaxy has a familiar, welcoming feel.
Excerpt: T imes may be hard for global economy, Samsung clearly doesn't care. Where many companies have gone into what I would almost call; 'sleep mode', Samsung seems to carry on at the same speed as they are used to. Focus seems to concentrate on the touchscreen models. Recently, the Samsung Omnia HD, Samsung Jet, Samsung Omnia 2 and the Samsung Omnia Qwerty, were speedily introduced one after the other.

Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Icon isn't a bad phone by any stretch of the imagination; in fact, it's quite the opposite. The AMOLED display is excellent, the 5-megapixel camera is a nice addition and the interface is slick and responsive. However, we would have appreciated some tweaks to the standard Android UI.
Pros: AMOLED display, 3.5mm headphone jack, 8GB internal memory with microSD, Android OS, responsive and slick, access to Android market, good Web browser
Cons: Annoying screen lock key, colour shift when viewing screen off-centre, no major tweaks to standard Android UI, regular e-mail client is mediocre, no multitouch
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy i7500 promised so much that we were very excited about getting our hands on it. The shock of finding out that Samsung has severely neglected some very important features and made questionable design decisions distracts from the fact that this is still a good smartphone. But it's not the best. There's a laundry list of irritants that Samsung should have got right, and haven't.
Pros: Incredible screen, oodles of storage, Android OS
Cons: Irritating lock button, unhelpful keyboard, poor battery life
Summary: Samsung puts Android into a nicely designed handset, but doesn't take it to the next level by customising the Android build. The hardware is nice, but we'd love to see Samsung deliver an Android smartphone with all the trimmings of its Windows and Symbian devices.
Pros: Sleek design, 8GB storage and 3.5mm headphone socket, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, Android Cupcake OS installed
Cons: Bad battery life, Poor multimedia support, Touchscreen isn't as responsive as we'd like
Excerpt: K üresel ekonomi açısından zor günler yaşıyor olabiliriz ancak bu durumun Samsung'un pek umurunda olmadığı görülüyor. Çoğu üretici firmanın nerdeyse 'uyku modu' diyebileceğimiz bir sessizliğe büründüğü bugünlerde Samsung eski hızını kesmeden devam ediyor. Samsung'un odaklandığı ürün kesimi ise dokunmatik ekranlı modeller.
