Samsung Galaxy S brings us some new HD video samples

Samsung Galaxy S brings us some new HD video samples - read the full textThe Samsung Galaxy S is among the best equipped smartphones and it should hit the market pretty soon. A 1GHz CPU, a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen and a 5 megapixel camera with HD video recording are enough to make the Galaxy S a prime target for those of you that are out for a big screen bad-ass...

Sure, you’re excited about the Samsung Galaxy S.

Now.

Stop.

And imagine 6 months after you bought the Galaxy. You’re angry. You been lied to. The promised updates never come. There are real problems just using the phone. Forums like this fill with users like you, angry, dumping the phone, and comparing how little the can get for it on craigslist. $150? If you’re lucky.

You’ll never buy a Samsung product again. Samsung has hired a PR firm to try to hide the real problems you and thousands of others are having with the phone.

This is real.

Do some research on the Samsung Behold II. This is Samsung’s business model.
1) Shiny new phone with promised updates
2) Wait… there’s no money in supporting a phone, only in selling new ones.
3) Refuse promised updates on under plainly false pretenses.
4) Go to step 1.
5) Profit.


Please, do not buy this or any other Samsung phone. HTC and Apple make nice phones that they support. Tell your friends.

I’m just a regular guy who fell for their lies. Don’t be me, 6 months from now, in a forum, writing this same message.

I have the iPhone 3G, HD2, Desire and Xperia X10! I hardly ever use my iPhone and simply use it to house my PAYG sim. Getting bored with HTC Sense although the Desire is a seriously good handset. Top of my class is my Xperia X10 because it is sooooo cool. Yes, it is not perfect but in reality none of them are but the one that gives me the best overall user experience is the one I will thumb the most, and that is my X10.

When the X10 is upgraded to 2.1 and HD video recording, it will be like a brand new phone and I will probably fall in love with it all over again!

All a matter of choice guys!

I have an iPhone but I dont bother saying how its better than every other phone. Its the phone i prefer, i could care less if its better or worse than a BB, Nokia, Samsung.. etc.

You can't really say much about Samsung when it comes to OS because they used WinMO and Symbian, but now both Microsoft and Nokia are working on a new OS from the ground up. Microsoft improved their OS with 6.5 and Windows Phone 7 should be amazing. Same with Nokia, the new Symbian^3 will be an improvement and Symbian^4 will be build from ground up. Plus Nokia got MeeGo scheduled to launch this year. I do hope Samsung will release a phone running on MeeGo

How come this Galaxy S spent 3~4second to open a live wallpaper??
and it still have delay while open some setting, or change page between Home and Meun. Maybe the reason is 512MB RAM isn't enough for the powerful CPU~

Interesting point by Someone.

To me the nicest OS to actually use on a computer is Mac OS X. It really is a lovely operating System.

On a phone, the nicest operating systems have to be Android and the iPhone OS. Really easy to use OS's with good menu's, nice colours and great touchscreen functionality.

My question is why did it take two companies with no experience in mobile phones (Apple & Google) to make the two nicest to use mobile phone operating Systems???

What were Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Samsung, and the others thinking 3 or 4 years ago with the OS of their own phones??

Is it the money? We know that Apple & Google can throw billions at it. Is it the experience? Apple have been making OS's for computers for over 30 years - Google also has 10 years web experience?

Thinking like that is childish.

It's all about how NICE the phone is to use. Remember, we don't use every feature given to us on our phones.

There are many high-spec phones out there that are just NOT FUN to use. You don't need high-specs to be a winner!!

> In reply to [deleted post]iphone is made successful only through advertising. I applaud Apple for that. But as for the phone itself, even you know that most other phones pwns ur beloved iphone.

you're just so stuck in denial that you are saying whatever you can to defend the iphone, probably because you're stuck with one in a shi tty 2 year contract.

Unless you're completely stupid, you'll know that the samsung galaxy S has better specs. At first, I use to praise that the iphone had a good screen, the best screen in fact, compared to other phones. But now, with tech getting better everyday, the iphone is becoming the loser in the mobile battle.

it is not perfect, but i like it.
480*800 resolution is low,
LED flash is needed for it,
graphical processor is needed,
and details of RAM and ROM is not said...
however must patient for it.

> In reply to [deleted post]You are really stuck in an iPhone loving bubble aren't you? I mentioned before that I have a N900, which cost $600 at the time I bought it. I could of got an iPhone with my AT&T contract and payed a lot less, so it's not money related, yet iPhone folks keep telling me I can't afford one.... Is that the best reason you can come up with for why I didn't get it?

@T.K. Advertisement gets you popular, once people see something on TV they immediately want to find out more about it, so naturally tech sites will have articles about what people want to read. It's not rocket science. But now the press is slowly starting to go against Apple, http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05...l?src=busln.

When the New York Times, which has been Apple's unpaid press office, goes against you, it's not a good sign. Plus, do you think Gizmodo, which has been one of the most pro Apple tech sites, is still gonna like Apple much?

As previously stated, it's a fashion statement, and as we all know, they come and go.
