Verizon Wireless Samsung Illusion Unboxing and Initial Hands On Review

A year ago, if you mentioned the words “entry-level” or “mid-level” for smartphones, you needed to run far away. Fast forward one year and these entry-level and mid-level phones are looking pretty good. The Samsung Illusion for Verizon Wireless fits the entry-level category as its priced at $79.99 for a two year contract. It features a 3.5-inch (480 x 320) LCD display, 1GHz processor, 512mb RAM, 3MP rear camera, 2GB internal memory, 2GB microSD card supplied (upgradeable to 32GB), 1500mAH battery, and Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread.

The Illusion also sports a curved screen much like the Galaxy Nexus. If you are into eco-friendly products, you will love the Illusion. The rear casing and battery cover is made with 70% post-consumer material and the front casing includes 30% post-consumer material. If that’s not enough, the packaging is made of 60% recycled paper that is bleach free, and finally, the printing is from vegetable ink.

All in all, the Illusion is not a bad device for $79.99 and will make a lot of budget-conscious consumers happy. I doubt I will do a full review unless I find something alarming, but for now checkout my unboxing and initial hands on review.
