Samsung Impression

As a messaging phone the Impression has a distinct profile.

The Impression offers a truly brilliant display. Samsung's TouchWiz interface allows for some customization, but not much.

The Impression is rather large, but it travels well.

The keybaord is pretty spacious and tactile, though we wish it had more shortcut options. All you get is a dedicated messaging button and arrow keys for navigation. When the display is open, the TouchWiz widgets appear in landscape mode.

We're also not sure why you would want to use the virtual QWERTY keyboard. But, it's there if you want it.

We'd prefer a flash on a 3-megapixel camera phone.
