googler, 27 Jun 2010Question people... If money is no concern is it better to buy this phone unlocked or wait for ... moreHey googler,
That's a good question. I was wondering the same thing but if money isn't an issue I suggest getting it unlocked because I've done research on the Samsung I9000 Galaxy S. I as well have T-mobile and have seen T-mobile's version and it's quite different. I personally like this one but T-mobile's version is different if you'd like to see T-mobile's version of it just google: Samsung Vibrant & FYI: that's the name T-mobile has given their version of the Galaxy S.
Anyone who owns this beauty, can u kindly post a video on youtube showin the slow motion video recordin ability plz? tnx in adv!
Have had the Galaxy S since 19th June and have fully exploited the potential of this device now, loaded it with multimedia and installed more than 20 very useful apps. The phone is nothing less than phenomenal and does not have any setbacks (i.e iPhone's ridiculous signal problem) and handles everything that i have had to throw at it so far, 720p video captures, DIVX/XVID movies, high res pictures, live audio streams, full internet browsing, 3G video calling and it does it all with minimum fuss and the screen (Super AMOLED) is simply the best bar none. Yes the iPhone has higher resolution but pixel for pixel it has better contrast and colours, the vividness of the screen will spoil you and you will never want a normal TFT again.
The SWYPE text input works very well, the whole experience has just been so smooth and painless.
Some negative points however... Battery life is terrible if you play with it all the time, but this is not an exclusive problem to this phone.
No Flash support as yet, but Froyo release will remedy this.
Overall from social networking to multimedia handling, this phone does it with a smile and never breaks a sweat.
If you can afford it, buy it.
Hi, before bying the galaxy S, can anyone tell me if the swype texting works in the dutch language?
thx for answering...
Question people... If money is no concern is it better to buy this phone unlocked or wait for T-mobile to release it? your expertise is would be appreciated
you have to download samsung kies or to change the setting on the phone usb connection to mass storage whichever.
I just got the phone, and i had trouble connecting my usb to my laptop to upload photos or songs. It simply cant read. Anyone facing the same problem? Help needed. tks
I wish people would stop talking about iPhone killer.
That is sooo 2009.
The iphone now has to come up with an android killer.
Last week I upgraded my HTC hero to an iPhone4. Next week I am going to return it and get the Galaxy S. I have extensively researched, thought about it, played with the Galaxy S in the shops and my iPhone4, and have come to the conclusion that where the iPhone4 is a fantastic but flawed phone, the GalaxyS offers more, and has very few of the limitations, restrictions, and proprietary nonsense one has to put up with on the iPhone.
My new iPhone is pretty smooth, but it is NOT free of occasional laggyness. The screen is darn gorgeous, but then so is the Galaxy S screen, and bigger. The only feature I would want is a camera flash, but then in my basic testing, the iphone4 flash is so weak you would not be able to illuminate a dark dinner table in a group shot... so the uses are very limited.
So, back to android it seems!

Is there anyway to somehow get HTC's Sense UI on this phone? I know that this is a Samsung phone but I'm just curious because I like the way Sense looks compared to Touchwiz.
arthur, 24 Jun 2010enthu, this phone supports flash(web). but it doesnt have LED flash. just to clear things out.... moreHi Arthur
I was talking of camera flash only.
Have you or anyone taking video and/or pictures under:
1) Sunlight - outdoors
2)Low-light - indoors
How are picture quality & video quality ?
Plz share ur experience.
So there is big announcement by Samsung on June 29th, when they will announce the exact date. but speculation is July 21.
t-mobile has already announced the phone coming to USA as Samsung Vibrant. see below:
I got this phone that I ordered from Expansys USA today. The clarity and color of the screen blew me away. Waited for 5 weeks and paid $619.99 US for this 8gb version. It worths every minutes and every pennies.
I just can not seem to find the Swype key input for texting. I know it is there but can not get it to work. Can someone help me please?
in my opinion 3 things keep this from beeing the perfect phone at this time:
-because it's the same size as the HD2 i wouldn't have minded a 4.3" screen :)
-a camera flash like the hd2/evo (tho i don't really care about the phone camera but it's nice to know it's there...also as a flashlight)
-a metal backplate would make it feel less plasticky and i wouldn't mind extra 10g for that
But i soooo want this phone still:D

googler, 26 Jun 2010well people??? does it support front facing camera to make video call?Yes it does!
Posted from my wifes galaxy s!
velsarav, 26 Jun 2010Does this support front facing camera to make video call?Depends on your carrier. For example, here in the US, AT&T's version does have a forward-facing camera, while T-Mobile's does not (likely because T-Mobile isn't big on video conferencing). So Samsung's making the Galaxy S both ways.
well people??? does it support front facing camera to make video call?
