Samsung Pixon Review
We were pleased with the Pixon’s ability as a pocket multimedia player, and it did pretty well as just an ordinary phone too. We have a few comments about the sound in the receiver, because it is somewhat muffled at times, but overall, it’s good. Your collocutor will have no troubles hearing you either. To our regret, the loudspeaker doesn’t perform at a very high level and the incoming sound is muddled (which is strange, because the music did sound good.)  On the caller’s end you’ll sound weak, even when you are speaking from a very short distance.


Conclusion:

Samsung has chosen the right direction for development of their touchscreen phones.  The experiments with the Croix interface were not successful so the company had to follow the trends. Colors were added to the menus, but neither the software nor the functionality of F480 was finely designed. First the OMNIA, and now with the Pixon, everything is changing. The new model not only has a very user-friendly interface but excellent functionality.This is probably the first phone which can actually compete with the iPhone and although its music player is not that attractive, it performs very well with quality sound. The video playback is slightly behind Apple’s phone but this is compensated by the multiple codec support. Add the 8MP camera and the only comments going to the not-so handy web browser, which is way behind the leaders in the category. However, we hope that a future software update will resolve the issue. We recommend the Pixon to everyone who wants to have a fun phone.

Pros

  • Great video playback capabilities
  • 8MP camera with good quality
  • Quality music player
  • Good overall functionality

Cons

  • Weak web browser
  • Poor flash
  • No color schemes
  • Not a smartphone

I don't understand why C905 isn't talked about when it comes to 8mp phones on PhoneArena. Just to remind everyone, C905 is THE FIRST 8.1 MP Camera announced.

Photos from the Pixon tend to get really blurry around the edges. The camera has a bad lens. LG Renoir's lens is much higher quality, producing crisp pictures. Plus the LG Renoir has WiFi and GPS.

Anyone know how likely it is that there will be software updates to sort out the browser? Without that being better, ill have to go fo the Omnia, or even the sony ericsson C905
