Video: A look into Samsung’s Soul

Not only was one of the most anticipated handsets to be unleashed at WMC, it also spawned a million rubbish headlines like the one above. But is it any good? We made a beeline for the Samsung stand to find out.

The immediate eye-catcher is the gorgeous and original Magic Touch navigational mouse pad, which alters depending on which application the handset you are using. Pretty neat, huh?

The sleek 12.9mm sliding metallic shell gives it unquestionable style, but what about the nitty gritty? Well, the Soul’s 5mp camera boasts face recognition, auto focus, image stabiliser and an impressive x4 digital zoom.

Need a fast internet connection? Well the Soul soothes as you can search google with HSDPA at 7.2mbps. It also plays multi-format music through the banging Bang & Olufsen ICEpower pre-amp.

Sammy say they’ve gone all out for the perfect combination of ‘highly styled design and functionality’ You know the specs, now check out the design in our video and judge for yourselves.
