Samsung Armani review

A fter a previous collaboration between Samsung and Giorgio Armani, about two years ago with the Samsung P520, the companies have once again joined forces to develop another cell phone together. This time, it is the Samsung Armani 2 B7620. For the fans, this will be a nice successor to their previous Armani phone, and we have to admit it is rather good timing from Samsung, considering a contract usually ends after two years. The difference between the previous Samsung Armani and the Armani 2 lies mainly in the functionality. As with other brands, we find the Samsung design phones often have to compromise somewhat when it comes to specifications. However, the new Samsung Armani 2 is considered a high-end mobile phone. The smartphone runs on the recently introduced Windows Mobile 6.5, which enables full-fledged multimedia and internet functions.

Samsung Giorgio Armani First impression

Although the packaging of the Samsung Giorgio Armani B7620 is large, it remains sophisticated. The phone seems to shine even before opening the package. Upon removing the lid, we immediately find the Samsung Armani smartphone. Underneath the cell phone, various boxes containing accessories are found. The accessories are all separately wrapped. The Samsung B7620 box standard holds a headset, USB data cable, a battery charger, a software CD, the user manuals, an extra battery with a holder to charge it, a stylus and a sturdy pouch (naturally with the Armani logo). The front of the Samsung Armani phone features an attractive finish with a bronze/gold-colored edge. Though it has to be said the color is a bit too overly present around the keys and on the entire back, which gives the phone a slightly tacky appearance.

The Samsung Armani is the first Samsung mobile phone to run standard on Windows Mobile 6.5. Since Samsung always adds their own extra level to the operating system, you will not find many changes. The main screen consists of a slider bar containing the famous Samsung Widgets. These are various shortcuts that can be placed on the start screen. The Samsung Armani 2 smartphone has three screens available. This way, a personal environment can be created consisting of all the frequently used items.
