Samsung i780 Review

Posted by

The first time I came across info on the Samsung i780, I was instantly impressed. Here was a handy device with “everything” I could ask for in a phone: large display, QWERTY keyboard, touchscreen, 2.0 mega-pixel camera (no flash), and HSDPA clocked at 3.6mbps.

I used the device extensively for about 3 months, and I can say that it is a well-rounded device – and at a very good price too. There is little to fault with the i780. It is a business device that gets the job done.

If you do not fancy the optical trackpad (that controls an on-screen mouse), you’ve got the option of stylus plus touchscreen. Both work very well. But I must say that the trackpad is well implemented and I used it extensively, such that I hardly ever used the stylus in 3 months of my possession of the device.
