I am returning my Galaxy S 16Gb. It is very good in general but the GPS is terrible, terrible. I need a working GPS, not a useless one. Pity, what a pity... no alternatives since android does not support external bluetooth gps units.
Do something Samsung! Maybe a recall is needed!
The Bell Vibrant in Canada is so much better than this one.
It comes with flash and front facing camara.
It has buttons from original Galaxy s phone.
BigT, 05 Aug 2010Which is better between the my-touch slider or the samsung galaxy?they are in 2 different specs, only the os2.1 is the same in both phones, other than that,it all depends on the personal favor, but i like vibrant better over all, especially the big screen.
3vilhomer, 05 Aug 2010google pinyin allows the phone to see chinese in menu or juz in websites?? is there any chines... morethis phone doesn't have the chinese display, however, the os supports chinese display on the web, and text messaging. Google pinyin gives you the ability to enter the chinese characters to contacts, search the web, texting, etc.
Jackson, 05 Aug 2010Why can I see any flash on any sites?is it because of 2.1?Yes android 2.2(froyo) is supposed to have flash.Don't know when that rolls out for the vibrant..
Sam, 05 Aug 2010mine is arriving tomorrow and im soooo craazzy!I got mine yesterday and I don't want to put it down!!!
Hi, expect the qwerty keyboard what it the differance between Samsung Vibrant and Samsung B7610.
Anonymous, 28 Jul 2010download the google pinyin and go to setting-choose traditional chinesegoogle pinyin allows the phone to see chinese in menu or juz in websites?? is there any chinese rom out for vibrant yet??
AMOLED is bad for your health? Oh please...smoking too, so be carefull buying this Samsung and smoking @ the same time!
This is by far one the best Android phone out there, great work Samsung!
AMOLED is definitely worse than a good TFT - ISP with LED back lit.
An important factor that has to be consider for this Super AMOLED is that the light directly beams into eyes from its source which is OLEDs.
All natural vision of human eyes is when the light comes from reflections of light, generated by sun or lamps, over objects: the photon beams don't directly get from source into eyes; also the beam of phones is not reflected as you may think: you don't get back through reflection the original photons from source; the phones are not as ping-pong balls cast back by objects which they hit; the beam is absorbed by objects, converted in energy and the objects emit other photons back in a sub spectrum of the original beam, lower intensity and broader uniformity over object surface thus giving color to objects and thus protecting the eyes from artificial light that maybe dangerous for human retina when comes from artificial powerful punctiform sources. The LED back lit from TFT is diffused over a white panel then by reflection passes though liquid crystals and get into eye so it is a reflected light, not the original light. OLED like CRT colored phosphors or plasma's pixels directly beam the light into eyes thus you are not protected from X-rays and ultraviolet emissions (UV radiation) and high energy photons which make lesions in organic tissue.
So, TFT displays are safer for health than AMOLED and CRT and plasma displays.
That's for sure that there is "No front facing camera for At&t and T Mobile version" Galaxy S handsets. Only Sprint version has front facing camera. Don't know for Verizon version.
When AMOLED display gets 1280x800 resolution Vibrant-like one will be better phone then iPhone in all respects
[deleted post]"All you shmucks whining about UV from the display, you have more to worry about from the RF radiation emitted from the phone than the UV!"
If anyone is shmuck, then that's not those who care about UV. RF danger is urban legend, not supported by any common sense. UV danger is medical fact understandable to any high school basic physics student who is currently not on heavy drugs.
Rohit, 03 Aug 2010Can anyone tell me the difference between Samsung Vibrant(this phone) and Samsung i897-Captiva... morethey are the same phone just slightly customized to the different carrier like the nexus one for tmobile and then at&t although this phone doesnt have a front facing camera and the captivate does
Rohit, 03 Aug 2010Can anyone tell me the difference between Samsung Vibrant(this phone) and Samsung i897-Captiva... moreSamsung Vibrant is for T-Mobile USA and has a 1700/2100 3G band and the Captivate was made for AT&T and has a different 3G band as well as different software tweaks such as blocking of downloading non-market apps.
