The whole look of the Samsung I5800 Galaxy 3 is very simple. It features a 5-direction pad with thing silver rims. But not like other phones, this has curved edges. The left and right soft keys are also touch sensitive, making it look quite seamless and elegant at the same time. The top features a protective cover with the microUSB port and the 3.5mm audio jack.
