As for the earlier post lamenting over the lack of HDMI output, that would be a real issue except for the fact that it supports MHL (Mobile High-def Link). That is a bit inconvenient since you need an adapter AND power supply to output to HDMI. The plus is it does charge the phone while it is hooked up (not that you couldn't charge the phone while using a normal HDMI port). I guess it saves $ for Sammy. If you are lucky a newer TV may support MHL directly.
16 gb for a phone is MORE THAN ENOUGH! why do you need all that space for? porn??? go watch that on your computer
Release date in UK pushed back to 2nd of December
Does anyone know when this will be released in Europe?
Was expecting the 17 but now they say 21 November:
Was hoping to have it for the weekend...
again no micro sd card slot.understand samsung -i wanna take card from slot and with sd adaptor to put in my 'ASUS' HD player or in my plasma sd card slot.nobody use cables in busy room -where running several kids.5 mpx is no problem-if senzor is big.i think is time for all brands to give us size of camera senzor.another thing-display resolution and new android versions ,which give me possibility to watch google tv in feature,looks fantastic
Apparently you don't understand that megapixels does not = quality. I use cheap cameras for my work. They get trashed. Many years back I got a 6 Mpixel camera that took such horrible pictures that I canned it. An old 1.3 Mpixel camera to FAR superior pixtures.
From what I understand the sensor in this camera is top end. That combined with the photo processing produces better photos than most 8 Mpixel phone cameras. From what I understand the camera photos/videos kick butt on the iphone.

It was ages since the existence of 5 mp shooters!!! I wouldn't spend money only on a new OS !! GOOGLE should rethink about this phone if they want it to make an impression.!!
I think it's a characteristic of AMOLED. Which is NOT used in their TV's. AMOLED Nexus One had similar condition.

why does samsung produce blueish screens in their mobile phones yet they can produce a not bluish screen in their TV's but they use same tech wich is amoled hmm.. just an observation cause this is really a downfall for me.
No 8mpx camera no 2mpx up front no tv out no wifi direct
No facebook integration no USB on the go no Bluetooth 4.0
Was hoping for 1.5 processors no gorilla glass wtf wtf why do I still
want to buy it??
very nice phone from Samsung I like that this phone is Android purist & not having any other UI on it this makes it faster people say 5mp is not enough? I say its enough for home use what I like about this phone is Display Performance & Operating System (Android 4.0) I am going to buy this for sure.... !!!!! Cheers !!!!!
Keyboards suck. the virtual keyboard is amazing. Its the best keyboard there is. Physical keyboard makes it thicker and ugly. Flagship devices shouldnt have keyboards if they want sales. Samsung did good. They should have made it 1.5 dual and SUper AMOLED PLUS and a newer video card. the power540 can handle any app, but still its old.

I've had excellent success with voice input and I expect the SGN to be even better! I have had two phones with a phsycal keyboard adn I will never buy a phone with a physical keyboard again.
