One of the more featured packaged phones available on the market, the Samsung Impression may be the phone you are looking for with its heart throbbing features and attractive (and should we also say gorgeous) outlook. With its large vibrant touch screen and full physical slide out QWERTY keyboard, this phone is pretty much geared up!
The most impressive fact about this phone is the AMOLED, (Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode), technology that's making its debut in the United States. For all those potential customers out there, this translates into the brightest and finest colored display you've ever seen on a phone before. You'll be surprised at how you can easily see the screen in any setting including the sunny outdoors. The vibrant colors and the outstanding clear details make the display of the Impression, its largest USP.
Viewing your photos or videos on the 3.2 "inch wide touch screen which supports up to 262,000 colors and a resolution of 240 x 400 pixels, is nothing short of being an enjoyment. the display to turn off when it's brought close to the face and the less power consumed by the display shows the consideration and the quality that went into the creation of this slick and smooth mobile phone.
The Impression is styled to appear like a candy bar with a full QWERTY keyboard that can be accessed by tipping the phone on its side and sliding it up. Samsung has done a good job with the QWERTY keyboard, making the keys spaced out adequately for users to type with improved convenience and ease. If that's not to your liking, you also have the option to use the touchscreen keyboard which offers both T9 and QWERTY.
Other noteworthy features would have been the intuitive TouchWiz interface, the 3.0 MP camera and GPS. AT & T Impressions use a MEdiaNet browser and a 3g connection which are impressively fast. It takes around thirty seconds to load pages. The browser can display in both portrait and landscape modes, also allowing users to easily switch between the touch keyboard and the slide out QWERTY keyboard.
The 3.0 mega-pixel camera enables you to take quality photos which can be easily edited with the on-phone application, all within a few touch on the screen.
Call reception and voice quality is above par on this phone. The speaker phone facility was good enough to make myself hear and to hear the other person as well even when using it on the road and the advertised battery life of 250 hours provided an accurate estimate.
