what the hell is t-mobile USA doing the need to pull there head out of there ass and market this bad boy
£45 per month to get the phone for free, are O2 totally insane ? Good luck on getting a large uptake at that pricepoint.
I received my Galaxy late last night and was really excited - I've been waiting to get one since it was first announced back in April or whenever it was. I spent ages charging it and guess what? The screen is faulty! There's an entire line of pixels that just glow red (is this flimmering as mentioned previously?) So I have to send it back. Won't get a replacement til the end of next week apparently. However, I have tried it out as much as I can without downloading anything and I have several points:
- The camera has no zoom or any features such as white balance etc (may be Android specific?)
- The video quality is really quite bad, but I suppose at least it has video recording capabilities
- It sometimes doesn't register when you press something, especially when trying to select the widgets on the home screen
- The home screen button is really springy so when you pick the phone up you can feel it vibrate
- The back cover feels like it's going to break whenever you take it off
However, it does have one of the best screens I've ever come across.
I hear that all the android phone have a propietary camera interface, is that true? What i mean, i hear it doesnt allow phone makers to put in the features they want into the camera while you are taking the shot, i just want to clearify.
I sure hope Samsung is still working on performance and bugs, because the Galaxy has many issues, apart from Android specific ones.

This is too bad, I hate these exclusive deals. O2 is charging double what other networks charge for a HTC Android phone per month with the phone free - £44. And for the usual amount of £25 per month that gets you an awesome HTC Hero from other networks, you have to pay in £200 for the phone.
I ain't even going near you O2!
LoL, this phone has been selling in croatia's tele2 for three weeks now. :p
