Samsung Acclaim Review

U.S. Cellular brings you the new Samsung Acclaim phone (aka Samsung SCH-R880) which is powered with Android OS. The phone measures 114 x 59 x 15mm and weighs 130g. The body of the phone is made up of glossy black plastic and it appears to be very durable. The TFT touchscreen display measures 3.2 inches and has a display resolution of 320 x 480 pixels and is capable of displaying 256k colors. The accelerometer rotates the display whenever it is held sideways or when you slide out the QWERTY keyboard. The proximity sensor turns of the display when a call is in progress.

Below the display of Samsung Acclaim, you can find four physical buttons namely, Menu, Home, Back, Search and an optical trackpad. On the left side of the phone, you can find the microSD slot and volume controller. The camera launcher and charger port is located at the right side. On the top you can find the 3.5mm audio jack. At the rear, the 3.2 megapixel camera with LED flash can be found. The mechanism of the QWERTY keyboard is smooth and all the keys are evenly placed but some users may take time to get the hang of it.

The Samsung Acclaim comes with 4GB external memory card and it can be expanded up to 32GB. The Android v2.1 OS present on the phone can also be upgraded to the Android v2.2.The phone runs on 800Mhz processor which brings about snappy performance. It is packed with applications like Google Maps (for GPS), Gtalk, Gmail, etc. It gives you 5 different home screens. Setting up PO3, Exchange and IMAP email accounts is quite easy as you are only required to enter the email address and the password. Social networking apps on this phone will let you update your social networking profiles and stay in touch with your buddies wherever you go.

The 3.2 megapixel camera produces decent photos. However, we found that the flash was not efficient enough while taking snaps in low lighting conditions. The video player plays video formats like H.263, H.264 and MP4. The music player plays wide range of audio files and it allows you to download songs from the Amazon MP3 Store. The sound output through the loudspeaker is of mediocre quality.

The Flash Lite supported Google WebKit browser is very user-friendly and has features like pinch-to-zoom and multi-touch. You can browse the web at 3G speeds – Rev.0, up to 153.2kbps and also through WLAN. The standard Li-Ion 1500 mAh battery of Samsung Acclaim gives a stand-by time of up to 450 hours and talk time of up to 8 hours.
