does this have microSD card support? everywhere else I read says it doesn't have microSD card support!
weretiger, 19 Oct 2011Samsung will not shot itself by launching something which has higher spec than SGSII.... else ... moreYes, i agree.. the way i see it is that this phone serves more as a platform for developers and hardware manufacturers.. with the relatively mediocre specs (compared to flagship models nowadays), it shows its compatibility with lower spec phones that have been out in the market for a while.. and certainly samsung, being a biz company, wouldn't want to cut its sales by introducing a google phone that is better than its flagship model.. the OS can certainly work for phone with faster cpu, or more MP cameras.. but why must they push the price even higher? They can cut corners here and there just to make this platform phone more affordable.. and don't forget about the megapixel myth.. more megapixels doesn't necessarily equates to better image quality, it only lets you print bigger.. but again, how many of you actually print bigger than A4 from phone camera? For me, 5mp is more than enough, 8mp is a bonus..
I don't know why people care so much about megapixels.. has anyone here not read about the megapixels myth? More megapixels does not necessarily means better image quality.. it just makes it larger.. want a better image quality? Then you should care more about its pixel size, noise handling capability and its light gathering capability.. want a great camera? Get a digital camera.. if competitors go with a decent 8mp cameras but you have a better performing 5mp snapper, why not? I know it's not yet proven but at least get some facts right that more MP does not necessarily means better camera.. any good photographers should know that.. i'll gladly choose a 6mp nikon d70 over lets say nikon coolpix line with 12mp in it.. because the sensor is larger and it has a better image quality than the smaller sensor in the compact cameras..
Doesn't make any difference on the pic quality for a phone after 5MP. Its just all numbers after that. Not any ground breaking wow features either in the phone or in the new ice cream sandwich. From that perspective, its a bit disappointing.
ok.. i am little disappointed..well.. it's 5MP camera.. 1.2Ghz Dual core CPU.. lets see.. if samsung galaxy s2 got android 4.0 it will be MUCH better than this !
Comapre This with S2.. S2 better Spec !!...
This is very disappointing...Thought Samsung would be able to create something more sophisticated. Might as well go for iPhone 4 with iOs5...
hugely dissapointed...doesnt look very sexy. and 5mp camera?! thats pathetic.
1.2ghz...was already on the galazy s2? why not improve?!
this has pissed me off! samsung/android is now operating like apple and dishing out old hardware with minor updates.
5mp is not that much of a big deal, most probably, you would just use the camera for ordinary photography, just for daily shooting. and bigger megapixel doesn't mean better photos. don't be fooled by the megapixel hype.
With the 1.3 front camera, maybe the ice cream sandwich is packed with native video calling? and 2mp front cameras wouldn't make much sense. you'd only be using it for self-close up photography.
Why not Dual SIM Dual Standby build with it? Build & patent it with Dual Sim Dual Standby(DSDS)
Sean Anggoro, 19 Oct 2011Spec is totally disappointing!!! Expected to have dual-core 1,5Ghz proc, 8mpx camera, and dual... moreah shut up everybody !
the 5 mp camera is hd and its quite good plus the processor and gpu too rocks !
anything more than this is just of no use ....
these are practically the best configuration ...
although the camera cud've been better but i think this info here is rong
Do keep in mind, that the megapixels does not make the Camera. Most phones with 8 Megapixels, such as the Desire HD, takes ridiculously BAD pictures. Now, compared to the iPhone 4, which "only" has a 5MP Camera, it takes SLIGHTLY better pictures. Regarding the camera, it all comes down to the lens itself. Megapixel is in fact irrelevant. A 5 megapixel is more than enough, with such a ridiculously overpowered lens, and the software, in Android 4.0. Get your facts straight before starting complaining about the camera.
Thumb up to Google for New Android Ice Cream Sandwitch.
Thumb down to Samsung for loading it into a low spec phone.
ok lets make a comparison according to my likes and needs:
1280x720 reso +2
4.65 inches Super AMOLED HD +1
Ice Cream Sandwich +1
5mp cam -1
Dual 1.2 ghz processors +1
1Gb RAM +1
micro sd +1
bluetooth file transfers +1
siri +.5 (i really dont need this)
apps and games availability +2
512mb RAM +.5
8mp cam +2
1ghz dualcore a5 processor +1
no bluetooth file transfers -1
no micro sd slot -1
upto 64gb storage +1
3.5inch screen +.5
This phone or Motorola Droid Razr? Or I guess, I'd wait for the Galaxy S 3.
I begin to wonder the delayed in launching the Galaxy Nexus was not due to respect for Steve Jobs, rather to avoid having same faith as Iphone 4S (disappoinment due to high hope), 1.2 Gig processor & pathetic 5MP Cam, sure now Samsung have no choice but to price it real "Cheap" to avoid futher anger. What a dumb act ! The image of new Android Ice Cream Sandwitch first phone, is totally tarnished.
Thumb down for Samsung !!
