Samsung Illusion is a low end cellphone released in 2011, having a 3 MP back-facing camera, a 3.5" touch-screen and a good 1000 MHz CPU.

Samsung decided to sell this phone with a good processing unit running at 1000 MHz with 512 MB of RAM memory. This device counts with a passable 2 GB internal storage memory, which is fine knowing that it also has an SD memory card expansion slot .

Apparently Samsung forgot about optimizing the weight in this 4.23 oz cellphone.

Samsung designed this cellphone with a good level 3.5 inches screen, and a resolution of 480 x 320 , providing this device with a nice image quality. This screen uses TFT capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

This phone has Wi-Fi capability (and it can provide it to other devices as a mobile hotspot) or 3G connectivity, over EV-DO A technologies. This phone doesn't have a sim card, because it's not a GSM device and it works in CDMA networks.

This phone only has a 3 MP back-facing camera. This cellphone also has geo tagging.

This phone also features some interesting features like Bluetooth (provides communication with other bluetooth devices, computers and accessories), GPS Navigation and NFC, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

This cellphone counts with a 1500 mAh mid capacity Li-Ion removable battery that provides the Samsung Illusion a great battery life. Samsung afirms this phone has a stand by time of 250 hours and a talk time of 6 hs.

The Samsung Illusion is not a very good choice considering it costs $ 145, while many similar phones cost much less than that.
