The Good The Bang & Olufsen Serene is a beautiful and elegant phone with a truly unique design. It even has a built-in motor to assist you in opening and closing the phone.
The Bad The Bang & Olufsen Serene is not built for practicality. It requires a special screwdriver to access the battery and the SIM card, and its circular keypad takes some getting used to. The phone's camera lens is positioned on the side of the device, making it difficult to align snapshots via the viewfinder on the display. Also, the Serene is extremely cost-prohibitive.
The Bottom Line The Bang & Olufsen Serene is a showpiece of a cell phone with a design unlike any other. Unfortunately, form does not meet function, and the Serene is more suited to be showcased in a museum rather than carried around in your pocket.
