Impression

 

The Samsung Impression ($200 with a two-year contract as of 5/1/09) has an extraordinarily bright and clear display--the first commercially available AMOLED (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) screen. Throw in a roomy full QWERTY keyboard, an...

Gorgeous AMOLED display Great multimedia features

No camera flash No 3.5mm headphone jack

Regrettably, the Impression's 3-megapixel camera disappoints, which is a shame since photos look so fantastic on the AMOLED display. Because the Impression lacks a flash--a surprising omission given its other features--the snapshots I took in low-light...

Samsung Impression SGH-i877 (AT&T)

 

The Impression SGH-i877 positively glows, thanks to its new AMOLED screen technology.

Uses new display technology. Responsive touch screen. Comfortable keyboard.

Expensive for what you get. Mediocre Web browser and e-mail program.

Samsung Impression (AT&T)

 

The Samsung Impression may be expensive at $199, but you'll get a lot of bang for your buck out of this slider phone. Messaging addicts will love its keyboard, and the device features a sharp 3-megapixel camera and a brilliant AMOLED display. It's not...

Samsung Impression Review

 

Samsung has been putting out a lot of TouchWiz powered devices over here in the last few months. Every wireless carrier seems to have some variant of the widget driven home screen. It's pretty and gives a personalized look to each device. We've managed...

Samsung Impression Review - Phone Reviews by Mobile Tech Review

 

For those of you who really liked the Samsung Eternity but pined for a hardware QWERTY keyboard, here's Samsung's solution: the Impression SGH-A877. The Impression features the same responsive touch screen and TouchWiz UI as the Eternity but ups the...

Fantastic looking, large touch screen that's responsive. Excellent keyboard, strong video playback performance, good GPS. TouchWiz is fun to use and very easy to learn. Samsung's latest widgets make the phone easier to use. Very good HTML web browser ;

Large and heavy phone by feature phone standards. Reception is middle of the road. Limited email accounts supported. No 3.5mm jack

The Samsung Impression is a powerful and fun feature phone. Its strong suit is multimedia thanks to the fantastic 3.2" AMOLED display, excellent CV streaming video playback and local video playback. The web browser, as with the Eternity, is one of the...

Samsung Impression Review

 

The Samsung Impression is one of AT&T's latest high-end phones. It's the first phone widely available in the U.S. with an AMOLED display, and Jen Edwards gives it high marks for its display, ease of use, and built-in keyboard.

Large, gorgeous touchscreen display ; Excellent keyboard ; Very good battery life

Screen and button lock mechanism poorly placed ; Non-standard headphone jack

Review: Samsung Impression

 

Samsung gives AT&T a touch phone that packs a full QWERTY, 3G, TouchWiz and a 3 megapixel camera. Is there anything unimpressive about the Impression?

Samsung Impression Preview

 

It's the AMOLED (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) screen that sets it apart from the competition. OLED displays take advantage of the fact that some organic compounds glow when an electrical current is applied to them. This means there is no...

The Impression is a quad-band world phone that supports AT&T's 3G service, and also sports Bluetooth

Samsung Impression

 

It took me a couple of weeks to getting use to the phone. I never had a touch phone before. Also I am used to using a flip phone. I do like the phone. My biggest complaint is keeping the screen clean.
