Conclusion: The Samsung Armani phone comes in two retail packages - standard and extended . The difference between the two is the Bluetooth headset in the bigger one. The standard contents of the retail box are a hard leather case, charger, data cable, memory card, a wired stereo headset, soft pouch as an alternative to the leather case and, finally, a cleaning cloth.
Excerpt: 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.
Conclusion: While there are some drawbacks functionality-wise, the phone still offers more than most of its owners would require. Considering the audience it is targeted to, just as the PRADA, it has decent (and better compared with the Prada) features, with major drawback being the tri-band GSM receiver, which doesn’t allow for using it all over the world. If you are on the market for such device, it is up to you which phone you would get – the PRADA or the newer Armani.
Summary: The reception quality was never an issue with the Samsung P520, as it was in line with other offerings available in this class. Our ring tones had average volume or a tad lower than that – we would miss our calls even with the Armani in a pocket often enough. The vibro alert was moderate strength-wise, retaining no edge over other Samsung-branded solutions.
Curiously enough, but the Samsung P520 is a snazzy and quaint solution.
Excerpt: The Giorgio Armani Samsung phone is the ultimate fusion of fashion, form and function. True style is more than just skin deep: beneath the exquisite surface of the Giorgio Armani Samsung phone lie redesigned icons, sounds and motifs, delivering an experience that is based on more than just looks.
Excerpt: When I first heard of the Samsung P520 Armani Phone , my first thought was that; every designer must be churning out their own mobile phones. First there was the LG Prada, then the Levi’s Original, and now the Samsung Armani Phone . So let’s have a look at the Samsung P520 . Quick Specs: The Samsung SGH-P520 weighs only 85g and is about 9.9mm thin. The Samsung Armani phone is a sleek phone with a large, 2.6 inch touch screen.
Summary: The Samsung Armani looks good, which is probably what you care about if you're thinking about buying a fashion phone. Watch out, though -- if you thought that just because the Armani had a touchscreen, it might be as good as something like the iPhone, or if you're after a smart phone, then think again
Pros: Compact size, Sturdy casing
Cons: Lack of 3G, Internet browser could be a lot better
Excerpt: Collaborating with a high-end fashion label may be a smart way to add some brand cachet, but Samsung’s teamwork with Giorgio Armani on its first joint labelled handset is more than just a style icon-endorsed trophy mobile.
