Samsung Illusion Review
We were pleased with the call quality on the Samsung Illusion, as voices sounded clear and natural on both ends, and there wasn’t any background noise or static. The 1500mAh battery is rated to provide up to 6 hours of talk time or 10 days of standby time. In our testing we were able to get up to 7 hours of continuous talk time on a full charge, or about 11-12 hours of mixed usage, which includes some talk, email, web, app use, and standby.


Conclusion:

Overall, the Samsung Illusion is a compact and capable smartphone that has a budget-friendly price of $79. The 3.5” display is on the small-side, but still works well, and we appreciate the 1GHz processor that makes the device feel snappy. Still, for $20 more, there is the Samsung Stratosphere. Not only is it 4G LTE, but has a 4” Super AMOLED Plus WVGA display, a 5MP auto-focus camera with flash, and a sliding QWERTY keyboard.

Software on tested device:
Android 2.3.5
Kernel: 2.6.35.7-EJ2-CL670540
Build: SCH-I100.EJ2
