Galaxy S seems like an awesome phone. Only problem is the cheap looking plastic build and the lack of a camera flash. That, along with the less refined OS, is kind of causing me to look at the iPhone 4 more and more. But we can all agree that these two devices are the BEST smartphones at the moment!
The iPhone 4 looks absolutely stunning and the iOS user interface seems a lot better than Android at least at the moment. I think I will end up buying the iPhone 4 and then jailbreak it. That way, I'll have access to all the apps in the iTunes Store as well as the additional apps available to jailbroken iPhones using Cydia. Plus, after jailbreaking, you can install widgets, transfer files using bluetooth, and customize your phone.
I feel bad for all you people that paid so much money to buy this phone. The at&t version of the galaxy s called the captivate is available on amazon on contract with at&t for $90. Seriously if you dont beleive me check amazons website. Haha il get it, use it untill nokia n8 comes out and then throw it away and buy n8! Nokia and Nokia N8 FTW!
I have been using this phone for over a week and it has astonished everybody. Features like LAYAR, SWEYPE and others are not just gimmicks - I used them all the time.
The phone is really easy to use yet it is also very customisable. The only flaw I can find is that it once stopped responding, which required a reboot.
The messaging and phoning bit is excellent.
Galaxy S is the cheapest of the high end smartphones in India
Samsung Galaxy S - $570
Motorola Milestone - $600
Apple Iphone 4 - $800

How can i install the drivers???
I have had Galaxy S for a week now and must tell you honestly that its an amazing phone. One strange thing i observed was that out of 4 charge cycles i carried out , in two of cycles the phone lasted 1 day but in other 2 cycles it lasted for nearly 2 days. My usage remains same.GPS off, sync when reqd, online on Gtalk 24x7, weather widget on, brightness minimum,and nearly 22 calls incoming and outgoing, little internet on Edge network. Can somebody tell wat was the difference?
Not sure why the hype is about. HTC phones have much better quality than this.
I bought this phone for Rs 27300/-(580US$)in Delhi(India). This is the best phone money can buy.
How to check for system updates on this phone? Anybody?
Thanks in advance.
can't believe this is even considered better than a iphone, hell even the iphone 3G pawns this, a phone is used for calling and texting and looking good, divx movies on such a small screen is absurd that's what home theatres are for, grow up geeks, iphone may be expensive but it's the style and smooth feel that makes it the winner, no phone will ever feel as smooth as the iphone
nice phone but it is really slippery. be careful holding it. unlike HTC's rubberized texture.
