Gsmarena why don't you find time to correct the specs for samsung like lacking for this phone the front facing camera?
Why gsmarena mocks apple, fakes ratings and promotes these buggy samsung and htc phones? Did they ever used the GPS on Galaxy and read this forum on its stupid screen? Maybe it has to do with anti-american trend to trash apple, an american icon.
Maybe, in the future, AMOLED will improve. So far, AMOLED is definitely worse than a good TFT - ISP with LED back lit.
Related to the usage of metal for light separators, it doesn't matter whether it is metal of non metal material. In fact, inclusive the metal, if it is very thin, it is transparent to light. Besides, the metal usually reflects the ambient light so if all sub pixels are off then you wish the screen to be black not silver as it may look if the pixels are separated by a metal grid like a very fine net from metal wires.
Another factor that has to be consider for this Super AMOLED, 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 by ultraviolet emissions and high energy photons which make lesions in organic tissue.
So, TFT displays are healthier than AMOLED and CRT and plasma displays.

Morons and false news reporters about iPhone 4 need to be quiet and talk about something else. Now is Samsung Galaxy GPS. Morons always find minor things to complain about.

The only problem is that your pants should be altered to have larger pockets to fit Streak.
Anonymous, 24 Jul 2010Good, you'll cary two phones now.It always good to have 2 phones at least for emergency or as back up. The Samsung Captivate is a good back up to my iPhone 4. I am presently waiting for the Dell Streak release to see if I woukd like it as a third phone to my Samsung Captivate and iPhone 4.

This phone was designed for user with higher IQ than average iphone user... this should start something with apple boys
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2010Let to give a chance to Galaxy; iPhone 4 is too good.I just bout my Samsung Captivate on July 22, 2010 because of the Android noise people have been talking about. I like the 4.0" screen and Super Amoled displays, Widgets and few features that are not available on the iPhone 4. I decided to buy the Samsung Captivate as a second phone to my iPhone 4.

Would AT&T unlock it in that case?
Love this phone so far....the only problem i have is that you can't take pics while you're talking on the phone
you know, i really hate the fact that this "ATT" or whatever they're called, copied the samsung galaxy s...i dont care if its their version of the samsung galaxy s...i personally think its gay..;)
the shape looks a bit like the sony ericson xperia X10 and believe me you dont want your phone looking like any sony ericson phone...and even if they wanted it in their version then why didn't they keep the weight of the phone the same? to be honest i think they're trying to sell more..but they're wrong..
because real samsung lovers,smartphone worshippers and android loving people will notice how much more better and efficient the SAMSUN GALAXY S is..lol this is a wee bit...opinionated. well that is me, force of habit :D i hope your on my team too..x
It's hard to get back to the original screen and sometimes freezes. I was at ATT store and found out the swipe function is hard if your not use to it. samsung should have made this phone with a little bit user friendly in order to be as good as the iphone.I'm waiting for HTC desire to get to ATT and try if this Deisre phone is much user friendly as iphone or samsung captivate.
