to all who wonder whether it is scratch resistance that gsmarena doesnt put it as scratch resistance. I went to the roadshow to clarify, YES it is scratch-resistance, it is made from tempered glass (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toughened_glass) cheers :)

i've played with my friend's droid, i noticed something about the apps menu, when you scroll it seems choppy and not seamless. on the iphone it is super smooth, so i guess the one on the galaxy S with similar type of app menu screen where you scroll left/ right instead of up/down on regular android UI, i think it will be as smooth as the iphone.
it may be the reason why they went for that UI. and because it is mix with bada os?

I noticed the phone in Singtel shop in Singapore. I am totally impressed with the display. Totally the king of all phone screens till date.
Auto Rotate is possible in both sides. Landscape left and right.
Eclair 2.1 installed.
Camera HD recording is impressive.
No dedicated camera key and flash.
Has a 7-sided homescreen. Which is totally useful for setting up widgets in ur homescreen.

But one bad point is it looks like an iPhone copy. I dont like the 4*4 icons setup i nthe menu. Even the icons layout is same as iPhone. Samsung should do something new rather than just putting the iPhone look alike.

But i am satisfied with my X10 though Samsung Galaxy S tempted me almost 95%.
Galaxy S will be a sure hit if they price it well.

I managed to try the Samsung Galaxy S at the Samsung roadshow at Plaza Singapura in Singapore. The phone is amazing - the screen is very bright and the phone very smooth. I am not sure if LED light is actually necessary for the phone because I hadn't had a chance to try it at night, but the camera is fantastic - the details are very clear. Though the Samsung Wave might seem to have a better screen and smoother interface though, despite both having SuperAMOLED and 1 GHz processor. Nonetheless, both phones are excellent phones and I was completely enthralled!

don't understand what Bu11$h1t is posted here.
the desire is no way better. all specs are worse.

maybe you like the HTC Plastic more, but thats your choice - everything else is objective better on the i9000.

and the desire does have big problems with the missing internal memory - without APPs2SD you'll always have memory troubles, that you'll never see on an i7500 or X10.

I can't believe they don't have a Flash for the Camera. Otherwise, I feel its got everything else, especially the Front Camera(for me, an essential for a 3G Phone).

512mb Ram finally! Now only a too high SAR-value could hold me back.

What made my day over the crappy camera (wich all seem to have - i don't mind about the flash though, its useless):

Atmel maXTouch Sensors!!
