This may be a self-evident statement but utmost attention to detail is what makes the difference between premium and standard grade items. The plain-looking paper box of the Samsung I9010 Galaxy S Giorgio Armani does seem a bit too ordinary for a high-end handset. But soon you realize it’s the packaging of the packaging.
Inside, there’s another box shaped like a jewelry chest with an Armani-branded magnetic buckle. That’s where the actual phone is, along with the supplied accessories. Items are separately packaged in little boxes made of paper which almost feels like fabric to the touch.
Anyway, the wrapping lives up to the name and this is exactly why you will probably feel a bit let down with the actual contents. We were hoping for a carrying case or at least a cloth to keep that Super AMOLED screen in prime shape. But we ended up with just a charger (Armani-branded), a USB cable and a headset.
There wasn’t even a memory card. And yeah, we know the I9010 has 16GB of storage already, but it’s not like you can have too much storage. And mind you, this one here is not what they call an austerity package.
