I think Samsung Galaxy S is great :-)
Flash support in web browser will be resolved with Froyo
LED flash? for what? Buy a torch ... Or you want a car in your phone for ten years?
For everybody - when you want to compare this phone with other devices - try to think and use your brains and try to compare with devices wiche are real on market, not with your "nonexisting device of your dream"
It si plastic? Of course - All phones are plastic ... or do you want device made of marble or steel?
Some comments here are childish..
Have nice day :-)
Great Phone. Would have prob bought this if there wasnt a samsung wave around the corner.
btw its android so offcourse there will be updates to this samsung phone 0.o
The bad points aint bad at all if you are even looking at this phone. You know you wont get No LED flash or dedicated camera button. Same as the millions of people who bought the iphone....
Anyway im wainting for the samsung wave review gsm arena :D.

It could have been perfect if it just the size of S8500 (Wave) i'm not really all that crazy 'bout homongous screen size.
GSM arena is the only site that acctually likes TouchWiz on top of Android...
I personally prefer vanilla but that's the matter of taste I guess... I u sure this is not iPhone OS on this, it sure as hell looks like it LOL....
It looks like you guys I fighting over who's gonna do review of Android device... a lot of recycled text here from other android reviews... guess droid makes it easy for you guys...
Like the specs, of the phone..... but personally I'd pick Desire or N1 over this in a heartbeat.... but that's just me though..
Thanks for review
Bingo, 22 May 2010Really can't understand why Gsmarena seems to like it so much...
No free GPS navigation solut... moreExcept for the N900, no other phones support flash fully (unless they're using Skyfire), so I don't see why the omission of it makes this a letdown compared to other competitors (desire, nexus, milestone, ifail).
GPS can be bought for a reasonable one time fee, so it's not a big deal imo.
The only flaw that glares at all is the lack of LED flash, but since all phone cameras suck pr. definition, the only thing you're really missing is the ability to use the flash as a torch. Possibly with such a good screen you can just use an onscreen torch instead.
Again for the cheap seats, the only thing that can hold this phone down is a high price tag.
Really can't understand why Gsmarena seems to like it so much...
No free GPS navigation solution
No Flash support for the web browser
No flash for the camera
No dedicated camera key
For me it is a big NO, too many letdowns.

Iphone couldn't even beat Nexus One head to head on CNET. Iphone 4G specs is just catching up with old Nokia N95. What keeps Iphone going is Appstore and you iApples, the phone itself is a total piece of junk and has tons of bugs.
Damn, GSMarena you missed to talk about two very important points and you made a mistake ( i suppose).
You missed to talk about VGA front camera (at least say "android doesn't support videocall yet) and to show the lanyard! It is the first Android to feature it and as it is so big it's really important!
The mistake (again i suppose) is about Wifi, everyone knows it has also Wifi N but you put just b and g. If it doesn't work as on HTC Desire/N1 just put "Android doesn't support wifi n yes".
And yes.. you didn't talk about bluetooth 3.0, how it works? is it faster, cooler, useless?
Finally thanks for the review, it's what I was looking for, very specific and nice to be read!! I'll continue to follow your blog!

BadScorp, 22 May 2010Phew, the review is finally here.. :)
I've been refreshing your home page since I saw a video... morehaha, you're not alone, f5 have been seeing some wear and tear since this thing showed up :D
anyway, seems excellent, will prolly' get this if it's not retardedly expensive
in Xperia X10 review GSMarena mention one of the main disadvantages Limited storage of apps i wonder what's the storage of I9000 Galaxy?
The iPhone 4g will beat this one in coold blood...
Since it showed up, iPhone stayed on the trone....
No matte if somebody hates it or dislikes it, that doesn't change anything.
only 256mb of ram and no flash support in the browser made me rethink my decision to swap my HTC Desire for this phone... Maybe i wait for the Samsung Beam :) if this phone will cost 600E, than it is waaay overpriced.
Hand, 22 May 2010Why no Flash support on the browser? Are we waiting for an Android update to support this? Yes.
