Samsung's Galaxy Round: Big on ergonomics, small on gimmick
This review does not take network data speeds into account, since the Round isn't compatible with US data networks. We will update the review if and when the Round comes to a US network in the future. All data was downloaded over WiFi.
With its bowed screen and back, it's tempting to think of Samsung's scooped-out Galaxy Round as pure gimmick, a unique first-to-market form factor to tack onto a one-off model just to showcase the bent AMOLED display technology that Samsung's been working on. That, though, would be a mistake. I was surprised at how much I liked the feel of the Round's curvy dimensions, which make it the most comfortable phone that's ever cupped my ear, hand, and pockets. The screen shape has some added viewing benefits as well.
Yet the Round isn't just about style. The phone's high-end specs pretty much mirror the Galaxy Note 3's credentials, minus the stylus, making it one of Samsung's most nimble and capable products.
