Samsung Eternity a867

 

General Description

One knows phones are really getting high tech when the product description leads off with " multimedia phone with large, vivid 3.2-inch touchscreen, haptic feedback, and intuitive TouchWiz interface".

Only those pure gadget geeks know what this means, but for the rest of us, the translation means that the screen image is large, the display vivid enough to view easily in daylight and the menu is controlled by touchscreen.

The sound quality is great and call quality is better than the iPhone, making this smartphone a good alternative for those frustrated with the iPhones call quality.

Positioned in the Samsung line up as a high end PDA/Smart phone without the ability to edit office documents, this smartphone has avoided the frustrations of Window Mobile 6.1

Missing on the Samsung Eternity a867 is:

  • Quick and remote dial - no voice dial and speed dial
  • USB cable
  • Zoom feature
  • Messaging features don't integrate well
  • Built in flash for the camera

Overall

This phone would be a perfect 10 if it had a USB cable for computer hookup, iPhone-like zoom feature and Nokia-like reception. In spite of this, the Samsung Eternity a867 is a sexy phone from a reliable vendor. Its form factor is fantastic and the features amazing for the price. Overall Rating: 4/5
