Samsung Impression SGH-A877 review:


Messaging phones were big news at CTIA 2009 and AT&T's Samsung Impression, aka the Samsung SGH-A877, quickly emerged as one of the most talked-about handsets at the show. With a brilliant display, a solid multimedia feature set, and a spacious...

The Samsung Impression has a brilliant touch screen, a roomy keyboard, and an intuitive design. It offers a functional midrange feature set and admirable multimedia performance and call quality.

The Samsung Impression has a proprietary headset jack, the camera lacks a flash, and keyboard shortcuts are few. Also, it lacks voice dialing and the promised battery life is rather short.

The Samsung Impression isn't perfect, but it ranks high on our list as a messaging and multimedia phone.

Samsung Impression (AT&T) Review


The AT&T Samsung Impression is one of the best messaging phones available on any carrier. Thanks to its beautiful AOLED display, 3-MP camera, and large and comfortable keyboard, the Impression will wow onlookers almost as much as the iPhone. We wish it...

Gorgeous display, Fast Web speeds, Excellent and comfortable keyboard, Beautiful design, 3-MP camera

Pricey, No 3.5mm headphone jack, Mediocre battery life

A well-rounded phone with an exceptionally bright display

Review: Samsung a877 Impression review


The Samsung a877 Impression is a hot new QWERTY keyboard equipped, full touch multimedia phone for AT&T. It is has an absolutely brilliant AMOLED display. See how it does in our review.

First looks are deceiving. Yes, it was great for the first few months but the touch screen functions start to get bad, if not work at all. The screen touch quit working right after the warranty was up. Make sure you save your address book to the SIM...

Samsung Impression A877: Touch Screen Cell Phone


While most touch screen phones typically come in the form of smartphones (i.e. handsets with a mobile operating system), the Samsung Impression A877 touch screen phone bucks the norm.

Great Product for the Price


I bought this phone for a trip abroad. Worked like a charm out of the box. I have had no problems with the phone since I began using it. Would recommend it to anyone who wants a good quality functional phone.

A Decent Phone That Gets The Job Done


Note: A phone case is shown as the product picture, but I'm actually reviewing the phone, not the case. The Samsung SGH A877, better known as the Samsung Impression, is the second phone I've owned. The first phone I owned was the ...

Sound quality, price, large keyboard, sensible design, fast web-browsing

No voice dialing, camera is lacking, breaks easily

A Samsung Eternity With A Slide Out Keyboard


Since it was time to upgrade from my Samsung Eternity, a phone that I loved except for the full touch screen keyboard, this phone fit the bill nicely. It has exactly the same features of the Samsung Eternity except that it has a slide out keyboard ...

Easy to use full qwerty slide out keyboard. Same features as previous models

Poor reception, lack of standard stereo head phone jack
