The Samsung’s i760 may not look all that attractive in photos but it’s not ugly either. The phone may not be a beauty like the Samsung i780 and i607 but it’s pure business-like; not chic but sophisticated. The phone has been wonderfully made to suit business needs.
The phone has a great slider design that hides the full QWERTY keyboard. The keyboard is rock-solid and durable. It is also very spacious and easy to use. In addition, it is well-backlit. The keys are made of soft rubber and are comfortable to press. They make for faster typing and better tactile grip and control.
The touchscreen works extremely well on the phone and it is the most convenient way to use applications, input data, navigate and do a lot more. The stylus is included on the lower right side. The phone has unique keys designed below the display. The tactile controls achieve similar tasks and also constitute an alphanumeric dialpad. Most Pocket PC phones have only a keyboard, so this addition by Samsung makes it even more convenient for users that don’t always want to use the virtual dialpad.
This touchscreen Pocket PC runs on Windows Mobile 6. In addition, it comes with the latest Office 2007; however, Windows Live integration is not included. There are some helpful applications included in the phone like the anniversary/birthday/events reminder program called D-Day, a task manager that allows you to shut programs with one hand and a copy of the Picsel browser.
One of the key features that makes this phone a perfect business machine is the addition of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, which are arguably one of the best in the market. The Bluetooth can be used for wireless headsets, wireless file transfers, hands-free and dial-up networking.
The i760 has a 1.3 megapixel camera that provides a resolution range of 1,280×960 to 160×120. The pictures can be enhanced by using the white-balance settings; in addition, you can also add various effects to edit your picture. There is also a camcorder that has features similar to the camera.
For those looking for entertainment on the move, the Samsung i760 comes with Windows Media Player 10 which supports playback of major digital audio and video formats. Additional codecs can be easily installed to playback other formats. The phone has a 64 MB RAM and 128 MB built-in flash memory. There is also an expansion slot, which can take up to 2 GB.
In sum, the Samsung i760 has a brilliant touch screen coupled with a useful QWERTY keyboard. The Windows Mobile 6 smartphone works extremely well and the Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and the camera make this a really good phone. On the downside, the phone is a little bulky and lacks a scroll wheel that most smartphones provide.
