The Samsung t528g measures 4.3″ by 2.0″ by 0.5″, lies perfectly in hand and has a 3.0” touch screen that takes most of phones front. The touch screen is nice though, with sharp and colorful display, even if some features aren’t intuitive and requests some getting used to. Touch screen keyboard can be used in landscape and portrait mode and the buttons are big enough. However, the touch screen itself is made of plastic instead of glass so to scratch it is actually pretty easy. In overall, if the touchscreen is the main reason for choosing this phone, you can be satisfied.
