The Samsung B7620 Giorgio Armani is one of those devices, which, after spending some time with it, makes you wonder, "What were they thinking?" Don't understand why? Allow me to explain.
The Samsung B7620 Giorgio Armani is supposed to be a fashionable device with the Armani branding and all. Now, we are no strangers to such fashion focused devices and have had a fair share of them in our test labs. But unlike most of them, the Samsung B7620 Giorgio Armani failed to make an impression on us.
It isn't particularly stylish, no matter which angle you look at it from. The phone, which is basically the Samsung OmniaPro underneath, was never supposed to be a stylish device. This is plainly obvious from its portly dimensions and heavy weight. It feels like what it actually is underneath, a full QWERTY smartphone designed for geeks and business users, not the fashion conscious. In fact the gold paint that Samsung has slapped on it makes it look a bit gaudy.
The Samsung B7620 Giorgio Armani has a slide out QWERTY keypad, which we found to be pretty spacious and easy to use. The phones slides out straight, but after opening you can also tilt the display like the N97 and N97 mini. However, unlike those phones, the display on the Samsung B7620 Giorgio Armani does not tilt automatically and has to be done manually. Also, we found the angle slightly steep after tilting but that is not much of a concern as the OLED display has good viewing angles.
