First Look: Samsung SCH-i760

1:26 /

The Samsung SCH-i760 goes big (literally), delivering a solid set of features and good performance to Verizon customers looking for a business-centric smartphone.

^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hi I'm Bonnie Cha. I'm your Editor at CNET.com and today we're taking a First Look at the Samsung SCH-i760. This is for Verizon Wireless and they finally have an updated Smartphone for their lineup and it's a good one. In terms of design it's pretty bulky but there's a reason. You slide it up and you get this full QUERTY keyboard here. I found them pretty easy to use; the buttons are a little bit slippery but there's enough spacing in between so it's good for composing messages, and what's also cool is you get an external dial pad which I haven't seen on too many devices, so you can easily dial numbers although you can call up the onscreen dial pad as well, so obviously it has a touch screen so that's nice as well. On the back you've got a 1.3 megapixel camera and it was actually producing some really nice quality photos. In fact you've got Windows mobile 6 Professional Edition so you get the full Office suite, as well as e-mail capabilities and it's got all the wireless you need. It's got E-video, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi so you're pretty much set there. The only thing missing is GPS. Overall a really fast device and call quality was decent. Like I said it's a great device for Verizon Wireless, probably best for our business users. It's available now for about 350 dollars so it's a little bit pricey but if you need a demanding device this is a good Smartphone to get. I'm Bonnie Cha and this has been the Samsung SCH-i760. ^M00:01:22 [ Music ] ^M00:01:26
