just a personal suggestion to phone manufactures out there. If a person is worried about over exposure of images,i would hope that there is this mechanism where we can set the brightness of the flash according to our preference (just like those lights in cinemas).. so, the light flashed out would be just right.. hmm, is it possible to do so?

Even if I disagree a little with you because I think that this feature is a must in every high end phone even if your not using it but it must be enabled since we are speaking about a high end phone with HD recording, but still I respect your opinion and point of view, and if this is what your convinced in and your fine with it, then go for it, and I hope you will be happy and satisfied with the device in the future, let's just hope samsung sticks to their word and provide you with good support, not like what they did with the omnia hd in the past :>

Best wishes,

They tend to over expose the picture so i never have them enabled, even with my 12mpx digital camera, and my samsung i900 omnia, I turn the flash off with both of them.

Like others who have posted here, the picture quality is determined by the lens, not the damn flash. for all we know, the lens on this phone could be very good, enabling it to let in enough light through it's aperture which will result in great pictures/video.

Pretty much, having an LED flash is only good for a flashlight, which, unless u have a blackout of something, is not that very useful. If you can show me some pictures taken with an LED flash, in low light conditions, AND manage to make them look good, i'll take back every single word i've said.

are making "commercial" about phones ho can be used like a entretainment center, to watch videos, listen music and surf in the internet...

Have Led flash or not is relative, this type of cell need to have a Xenon. In this point we can have a really discussion. But Laggs in system or poor video or audio quality is completly unacptable...

PS: Sorry, i create some words, i think, hahaha

> In reply to SE 2010 @ 2010-04-24 19:30 from kJqe - click to read Yes, you are Rigut, but i disagree in some specs.
I have an Omnia HD, and this cell phone have a impressive camera and video qualitty. BUT, when i need to take a photo or a video recording at night, or in a darkness place, im simple dont make anything, because the video and the camera have a bad quality, with a lot of lines and image distorcions, using i a flash or not. For me, doesen´t matter have a led flash or not. I think that a phone ho have this hardware, ned to have a Xenon Flash, not a Led...
I use LED only like a torch...
The biggest problem for me, is the possibility that the galaxy S or the HTC desire have a bad sound quality. Phones with this screem type (amoled or supermoled), can not have a bad audio quality. It is a disrespect with the consumer. Because those images inviting the consumer to watch movies in the Phone, and the experiency can not be ruined...

Flash lack i agree; if you like to take night pictures, buy a professional camera, not a cell phone. But, slow system or poor audio/video quality is not ("excusable?"), because HTC and Samsung are making (propaganda, commercial, i don´t know the correct word)about multimedias phones...

Who says the phone doesn't come with a flash? It has a LED flash. I saw that bit of info on another site in the UK. Unless its posting mis-information I am not sure, but that is what it said on it.

Personally this is one of the best touch screen phones I have seen. I usually prefer phones with a full qwerty key-board, but the features on this phone is enough to make me switch from my Bold 9700...wow!

If you know that lacking a flash will limit the good pictures you can take, and also limit the HD recording and your fine with that, then it's bro it's you call and I totally respect it :)

I'm just saying that, since your paying at least try to look for other alternatives that may also have a lot to offer and not lack a simple hardware like a flash. After all your paying for a high end phone and it should have most of the important things.

Good day :)

> In reply to L.K. @ 2010-04-24 18:59 from veT3 - click to readVery good comment bro, that's exactly my point. I'm not here to bash or annoy others. I just believe that a high end phone that lacks a flash is just something that is not acceptable at all. In fact, I find it insulting adding HD recording features with out a flash. It's like fooling people that you have HD recording and even the phones with VGA recording will record far better specially in low light conditions and in night time.

It's nice to see people who are wise and still using their brain :)
