The Memoir turns out to be a very good multimedia device.

The Samsung Memoir is a problematic phone, mainly because of how it stacks up to its competition
It is undoubtedly the best cameraphone on the market, not just because it has the most densely packed sensor, but also because it took great pics under the best lighting conditions.

In design, the Memoir looks more camera than phone, with a touchscreen and digicam-oriented controls. The entire back of the phone is taken up by a large touchscreen display; Talk, Back and End buttons occupy one side.
Leaps and bounds ahead of other... Full review
