The new Samsung touch UI has some decent potential, but at this point I think it, and especially the applications that use it, just isn't ready for a production level device. Especially a pricey, high-end cell phone such as the SGH-P520 Armani.
On paper the Samsung SGH-P520 Armani phone looks like a solid phone. The physical design is quite good, the touchscreen seems to work well, and it even appears to offer good reception characteristics. Sure the lack of 3G data will bother some, but I feel that the biggest faults in the device are its poor user interface and the sluggish performance of the multimedia applications, which are otherwise quite good. If you are looking for the Armani name, or just a very small credit card sized phone, then perhaps the P520 will suit you. But even with the solid physical design and good looks, I just can't recommend this device to users.
