Samsung's New SmartPhone Makes a Great Impression
At a Glance
The Samsung Impression an excellent messaging phone with a gorgeous AMOLED display, but it is missing a few vital features.
The Samsung Impression has a fantastic display--the first commercially available AMOLED (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) screen. With a roomy full QWERTY keyboard, an intuitive touchscreen interface, and some advanced features, the Impression is one of the best midrange messaging phones we've seen. It has a few quirks, though, as it lacks voice dialing, a camera flash, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and is a bit pricy. Assistant Editor Ginny Mies takes a look.
