Samsung Armani review

F ashion is more than the way we dress, as Giorgio Armani states. To meet the growing demands for consumer electronics, Giorgio Armani developed an advanced mobile phone, in cooperation with Samsung, with a unique appearance, also known as the Samsung P520. Luxury, elegance and simplicity are Giorgio Armani's key features and they also characterize the Samsung P520. Samsung's experience in the field of user-friendliness certainly shows with this device. The enhanced digital camera, MP3 player, astonishing graphic effects and famous brand name, make the Giorgio Armani cell phone a desired gadget, especially for the younger generation.

Not only is the Giorgio Armani mobile phone a stylish device, it is also delivered in style. The black box has a silky feel, like the cover of the user’s guide. A leather pouch that folds out comes with the phone to protect it. When you shut the cover, it shuts down the cell phone. You can also choose to use the included pouch made from soft material. Naturally a battery charger, USB cable, earphone and software CDs are included in the box. An original addition is the soft cleansing cloth, marked with the Armani logo, which serves to wipe the Samsung P520 clean.

Samsung P520 cell phone design

The Samsung P520 has a businesslike and classy appearance also thanks to its durable, black housing carrying the Giorgio Armani logo. The dimensions of 3.5x 2.1x0.4 inches make the cell phone extremely compact and the full touchscreen enables optimum management. Thanks to its compact design you hardly notice the cell phone in your trouser pocket. On the front there are only two buttons available; the 'numeric key pad' and the 'on/off' or 'close menu' key. At first the Armani cell phone reminded me of a smartphone, also because of the visible agenda in standby mode, but as far as functionality is concerned, the Samsung P520 is a regular mobile phone. Buttons to operate the digital camera and to key lock are placed on the right side of the phone while the volume buttons can be found on the left side. Logically, the digital camera is found on the back of the Giorgio Armani cell phone.
