Samsung Giorgio Armani Galaxy S hands-on - Pocket-lint

 

Samsung has teamed up with Giorgio Armani once again, this time to create a more exclusive version of the Galaxy S. Never one to miss out on a bit of exclusive

Giorgio Armani Samsung SGH-P520 review

 

Samsung gets in on the fashion label phone scene with this stylish show-stealer

Stylish design ; Thin and compact shell ; 2.6-inch touchscreen control with haptic feedback ; Fashionable extras supplied

Text composition implementation poor ; No 3G or Wi-Fi ; No regular headphone socket for upgrading ; Camera performance could be better

A slick and elegant design will be more than enough for the crowds who are drawn in by the Giorgio Armani name, but the dodgy interface will deter other possible users.

Samsung P520 Armani mobile phone - Pocket-lint

 

One of the slinkiest looking handsets on the fashion phone catwalk but an inconsistent touch UI and feature performance trips it up

Ultra-stylish, slimline and compact, well made handset

Erratic touch sensitivity, slow memory card processing and no 3G or Wi-Fi

Fashion phones are all about style and the Armani phone has that in spades.

Samsung P520 Armani review

 

Giorgio Armani is the latest label to join the happening mobile scene. Will it fall into the same style-over-substance pitfall as some its fellow fashionistas?

Giorgio Armani Samsung SGH-P520

 

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
