We’ve had our cell phones for 3 years. They are so old they have ‘Cingular’ stamped all over them. The LG 300 has been a good phone for us. It’s had great reliability, we’ve each dropped our phones a few times and everything still worked pretty well (except my 7 key stopped working very well). But texting was a pain, and everybody now texts us instead of calls, and there comes a time when you just need a new phone.
I had looked around a lot for the last several months thinking about my various options. I like some of the features of the iphone, but I hate Apple, I think they are one of the dirtiest companies around and everyone is so blinded by their fanatical following it’s rather scary. So I wanted something similar, but preferrably by a different company. The new Palm phone looks fantastic, but A. I don’t want to wait that long, and B. I will never have a cell phone on Sprint. So, instead I’ve been looking at the Samsung Eternity. I’ve read all the reviews and liked what I saw. So with that in mind I went into the store and tried it out.
It was great, and I really liked it. I could definitely see myself with it. But sitting next to it was the newer Samsung Impression, and boy did that leave an impression. The screen (touch screen) is a new organic led. It’s the first of it’s kind in America, and it’s brighter and clearer than any previous screen technology. It was beautiful! It also uses only a fraction of the energy as traditional screens, meaning the battery lasts much longer. It also has a slide out keyboard, incase you prefer to type on actual buttons instead of a touch-screen. It plays music and video, has tv, gps navigation (extra fee) a 3.0 megapixel camera and a lot more.
I haven’t been using it much, I’m waiting for my Invisible Shield by Zagg to come in (another great product that you should check out). But so far I’ve been very impressed. Battery life has been very good, the widgets have been fun, I’ve been able to use the internet, and text life never before. A very good product.
