Samsung Galaxy 551 review: Value line

GSMArena team, 24 January 2011

The Samsung Galaxy 551 is something that should have happened a long time ago. This is not to say that the form factor was out of favor with Samsung. But it took a slew of CDMA messengers to finally see a QWERTY ...

Samsung I9010 Galaxy S Giorgio Armani review: Fashionware

GSMArena team, 14 January 2011

Itís not the suit that makes a man and itís certainly not a big fat logo that makes a phone. To be honest, the last thing Android needs to boost its credit with users is a big designer name. But for a change, this is one of the rare examples when a smartphone is not being eclipsed by a fashion phone...

Samsung S8530 Wave II review: Riding the wave

Samsung S8530 Wave II review: Riding the wave

GSMArena team, 19 November 2010

They shall come in wave upon wave. Or so it seemed in the beginning. Samsung certainly wanted a strong start for their own Bada OS and they had it.

Samsung M5650 Lindy review: Corby's significant other

GSMArena team, 12 January 2010

You just couldn't have missed the Samsung Corby. Dirty cheap phone with replaceable rear covers and more clones than features. That's the one. Newsflash: the outbreak of cheap as chips touchscreen handsets continues now that we have the Lindy - fresh off Corby's rib...
