Our colleagues over on CNET UK already gave us a full rundown of the Samsung Armani when it first showed up earlier this year, but we wanted to get our hands on it, too, to see this fashion phone for ourselves. The Armani comes in this fancy black box that rivals the iPhone in terms of package design, and when we opened it up and took a look at the phone, we could definitely see the Armani influence. It is a super-stylish touch-screen handset encased in a glossy black steel shell, plus it has a menu interface that glows subtly. The touch screen has haptic feedback, providing tiny vibrations when something is selected, and we really liked the music player. That said, we had issues with it--scrolling and swiping the screen wasn't always intuitive, and texting can be quite tedious. Also, its 3-megapixel camera failed to wow us. But if you really must have one of the hottest fashion phones on the block, the Samsung Armani fits the bill. Check out our full review of the phone as well as our Samsung Armani photo gallery.
