A quick look at Anycall’s Haptic

Written by admin on April 5, 2008 – 11:36 pm -

I was at the COEX mall today and had a chance to have a quick test drive of Anycall’s (Samsung) latest phone to jump on the iPhone bandwagon. I had 10 mins. to play with it so don’t consider my observations as an extensive review. Good news first, the Haptic can be switched to English. I would consider the UI to be good but nothing to write home about, you can drag and drop apps onto the desktop to create shortcuts. It had a number of games installed but I only played with a pair or dice by shaking the phone. I wanted to test typing a text message on the Haptic and much to my surprise and disappointment, the Haptic and on onscreen version of a mobile phone keypad as opposed to a qwerty keyboard that I was expecting. I also felt that scrolling was not that responsive but it could be due to the screen protector that was attached. I didn’t have a chance to see if the Haptic was capable of playing MP3 files or if you had to use a proprietary format such as SK Telecom’s Melon player which is a deal breaker for me. I’ll be looking more into this phone in the days to come and post updates.
