Editors Liked

  • Attractive. Standard-size headphone jack and side-mounted microSD card slot. Can multitask while playing music
  • Nice design, good music quality
  • Sleek design with contoured ribs for easy sliding. Good GPS performance. Nice set of musical features.
  • The Samsung Trance has a beautiful and sophisticated design, plus it has stereo Bluetooth and a 3.5 millimeter headset jack. The audio quality is fantastic, especially with 3D surround sound

Editors Didn't Like

  • No 3G. Weak battery. Low-res screen. Side buttons are easily triggered during calls. Poor sound quality with music
  • No 3G, not very rugged, questionable call audio
  • Bang & Olufsen ICEpower sound fails to impress. Music experience overall is muddy and sub-par. Interface needs an update.
  • We weren't pleased with the flat touch-sensitive navigation array, and the photo quality isn't great. The Samsung Trance also doesn't have EV-DO, which means it can't download songs over-the-air
