i8000 is NOT really an iphone killer given its first chance almost one year ago that I got the i900. Can I say SamSuck or SamSung Sucks or...your turn now..Darn I wish iphone has everything like the i900 plus its sweet UI so I don't have to shell out another US$700 soon to find out. Winmo OS sucks compared to iphone for UI smoothness and fastness. Bill Gates where the hell are you, why don't you hire the genius engrs from Apple or I can come help you out to beat iphone.

GREAT PHONE, but the price of
$$$735 is insane and way overpriced!!!!
The only significant difference between Nokia
5800 and this one is Larger and more Quality screen.
It's not worth $400 extra to pay for this Samsung phone!!!
CAMERA IS JUNK as always anyway.
Where it's Nokia, Samsung or LG!
Is this phone worth getting or should I wait till wm7 start shipping?
digs, 25 Jul 2009is it worth buying for? is stylus needed to use it comfortably?You dont need the stylus at all, the Touchwiz interface takes over all the menus/settings/messages etc. its fantastic!
Not sure why the specs say this phone is released - it's definitely not released any where under contract in the UK yet and every shop I go into asking about this they look at me totally blankly. I suspect it will be Xmas before it comes out. Can anyone confirm if this phone has been released or not in the UK?
I have seen the video clip at youtube about this cell phone recently. It is very repsonsible like iphone. If this is the case it has more advantage over iphone(capactive touch screen) because there are some programs that require accurate input so the stylus can provide that accurate inputs. Whereas, the capacitive technology requires the fingers to do so it can't provide the accurate inputs. In addition, this phone has many ways for you to view your photoes and they look much better than the simple one like iphone has.
- choose black theme and words you type in your windows live messenger goes ALL BLACK till u enter and send
- slow response/hang intermittently on phone and browser
-horizontal takes sometimes to rotate and appear
- touch player needs to search and add media(songs/videos) almost everytime, imagine if u have thousands of them, it may take up to 1 or 2 min to do so b4 u start listeing to your songs
- opera browser intermittent refreshes itself in a loop while u r keying website add or using the goole search bar
- gprs disconnects and reconnects to different profile when ur accessing different applications(facebook/browser etc.)
Check out the below website some users have posted sample photos & videos. Photos very nice & video a bit grainy by seems alot better than the i900
Anonymous, 26 Jul 2009This Phone has a sim card slot right?No it does not have a sim slot you still your sim card in yor pocket and the phone detects your sim card..!
harry , 25 Jul 2009I bought this phone in singapore airport 3 day after release. accelerometer works in opera mob... moreMaybe your set is problematic.
The touch is extremely responsive. Not as you said need to hard press.
Just touch it and it will do flawlessly.

You can get the specification at Singapore Samsung Site.
Anonymous, 26 Jul 2009No mention of ram so am assuming it is around the 128mb mark. Not good. V good processor but ... moreAs I know it only release at Singapore at the moment.
It is 256MB | 512MB | 8GB + microSD up to 32GB (current unit in singapore)

I seen my friend one last week, the speed is responsive (the most faster WM phone I ever play)
The screen is Advanced R-Touch (it is responsive like iPhone - at least 90% of it, I got iPod touch, so I know the different)
