The Samsung Vibrant does not have a front-facing camera. The Samsung Epic (Galaxy S phone for Sprint) has the front facing camera. In my opinion, the Vibrant doesn't need one. I think it beats out the other phones of the series.
I used a full charged (100%) phone (it took 3 hours to get it there from a 4% juice) only for calls to check the actual's claimed by Samsung. I turned off all internet activity, background data, 3G network, animations, min screen brightness and didn't even text. I received only 2 calls and called out rest of the times. The total "standby plus calling time" for which the phone lasted was 43 hours which had 10 hours 58 mins(91% of battery use out of the 96% i had consumed before started charging it again) of total voice calls and 1 hour 54 mins (7% of the battery use out of the 96%) of display use which i guess again includes the time display is ON when you dial the numbers, hang up etc during the calls..
that's cool i guess..
but my NOKIA E72 does better (sorry to compare to way diff phones, but i am a HUGE fan of the way NOKIA phones' batteries last!!!). A full charge gets me through to about 38 hours with 11 hours of talking, texting, alarms, incoming calls ringing, email checking 10 times a day, occasional Google search.
The only diff here i believe is the high powered samsung processor (1Ghz over Nokia's 600 Mhz) and the HUGE disply of the SGS..

wishing, 10 Sep 2010samsung vibrant has no front cameraIt has a secondary (front) camera as mentioned in GSMarena phone specs. You can even view pics and watch videos related to this phone.
Texas Jeff, 13 Sep 2010No need to get one unlocked. AT&T has their own version of the same (Samsung Galaxy S) ph... moreSaw both at Costco, compare side by side, the captivate is so much bulkier, do not listen to him/her. Get the vibrant, is slimmer and look better than the captivator..

Got mine yesterday .. and it's really nice. very fast processor, and the storage is abundant.
some minor cons (coming from my previous phone: G1): - no LED indicator light, which is handy.
lots of preloaded programs that you cannot uninstall (and they're trial versions). I am still missing the track ball that was on the G1, and many other current phones. it will take me some time to get used to this.
other than this, the phone is great, and I love it!
