Samsung Galaxy 551 review: Value line

GSMArena team, 24 January 2011

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

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.
