Samsung Impression Review
The Samsung Impression (SGH-A877) was recently showcased at the CTIA event in Las Vegas. The interesting things about this phone that make it great are the full keyboard, a rather large touchscreen, a digital camera and all the other features you’d expect from a smart phone. The unique aspect of this phone is the Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode (AMOLED), which is a first in the United States for showing a very bright and clear display. I think the Samsung Impression is a great phone and I am going to go into a lot more detail on what makes it great.
The Impression has the following features….
• QWERTY Keyboard
• Speaker Phone
• Email, IM, RSS, SMS, MMS
• MP3 Player
• Movie Player (Mpeg)
• Photo/Video editor
The AMOLED is really an amazing thing that a lot of people don’t understand. It’s a new way of displaying pixels on a screen. Normally on phones they’ll have a light in the background that will light up the display, so that you can see everything. The problem with that is the light makes some parts of the screen brighter than others. It also causes parts of the screen not to be as clear as they should be. The organic light emitting diode doesn’t require a light and displays a crystal clear screen for every single pixel. That means when you’re using the phone or viewing a video, you’re going to see everything perfectly.
The Samsung Impression has a slide to expose the full QWERT keyboard on the side. This makes it a very well put together phone. This will make you much more efficient at emailing, texting and even editing documents. When you’re done with the keyboard, you just slide it back in. That means the phone is as big as it needs to be for whatever you’re doing. It makes it quick and easy for people that need to type from their phone.
The Impression falls under the category of a candy bar phone. It’s not the most common term, but basically you have two types of cell phones; the flip phone and the rectangular one. A candy bar is just the rectangular ones. It just means you don’t have a hinge to close it. Most of the newer phones and the smart phones are going this direction because it’s much easier to add more features to it.
You’ll notice that this particular Samsung phone will have a large 3.2 inch touchscreen. This seems to be a standard thing that Samsung is really trying to do. Most other cell phones are trying to get smaller and smaller. They’re getting, so small that they can’t be practical. This screen is a lot larger than other phones, but not too big. It just makes it much easier to do work on and with the AMOLED you’re going to have a crystal clear display.
As you would expect on any smart phone, you’re going to find all the other little features that you’d want. You’re going to have a full browser on there that works with newer XHTML coding. That may not mean much, but sites will look the same way they do on a computer. It comes with all the software you need to send emails, talk on instant messengers, edit documents, edit videos and even edit sounds. It’s definitely ahead when it comes to new features like that.
Some of the more interesting things you may like are that it is a full MP3 player and video player. You can add the music you want to the phone and you can add videos to watch. The 3 megapixel camera will allow you to take high quality pictures and video if you want to. The Samsung Impression is a 3G phone that has full Bluetooth and USB capabilities.
Currently the Samsung Impression is being released through AT&T’s network. It’s going to be a great phone that will really excite its users. The expected price of the phone will be about $200 through the AT&T carrier. The release date will be on April 7th, so it’s time to get it now.
