Some more hands on. This time with graphics and gaming.
If your in to gaming, then try Asphalt 4. You can download the demo version from the Android App Store for free. Then go to the Samsung App widget on your phone and there should be an update to download the full version for free!
Now graphics on the Galaxy S are superb. Asphalt 5 is like something on the original Xbox! The game runs at a very nice frame rate It also plays original Playstation 1 games using the PSX4droid Emulator which is also found on the Android app store.

i've tested my phone at 2 different places.
I've seen no problem with wifi signal rang... morethanks dude or dudette
will now sway my decision on what phone to get looking like the i9000 S is the right choice and very true about the camera who uses 5mp anyway most networks send pics at 600 x 400 a 300kb file... a standard shot for 5mp is about 1mb ish if you want a camera buy a camera if you want a phone buy a phone
My handle isn't a reference to the iPhone manufacturer.
Anyway, speaking of the iPhone, I was torn between getting either the Galaxy S or the iPhone 4, but the Galaxy won out in the end. For one thing, you've got a lot more freedom in terms of customization, playable video formats, etc. Although the 4's got a great App Store, I have full confidence that the Android Market will catch up sooner or later. And even if it doesn't, it's got a heck lot more free apps than Apple.
In an eggshell (barring all my other opinions), the Galaxy S is a great phone for those of you looking for a more affordable high-end smartphone. If you've got a few dollars left over to shell out on an iPhone, then it's up to you whether you favor it or not. But in my own, humble opinion, the only areas wherein the iPhone outclasses the Galaxy S is in terms of a richer app store, a (much) higher resolution, and a flash for the camera.
My two centavos :3
bob lee, 31 Jul 2010How far range does this WIFI get? i have the omnia and i have to be in the same room as the mo... moreHi,
i've tested my phone at 2 different places.
I've seen no problem with wifi signal range.
At my friend's place, i was sat in his garden, his router was like 20meters away within his house
and i was browsing android market and downloading
applications very smoothly.
This phone is really good, battery is just great,
after whole afternoon spent on it with wifi ON,
battery is still at 75% currently.
I thought according to various pictures that the phone would be a bit too big. Actually it's barely bigger than iphone / Omnia and still can fit in your pocket. S-Amoled screen is really great too, you can use it without any problem outdoor under the sun, it stays visible and usable.
The only down side is the 5MP camera. Really, people
argueing with "what do you want a 8MP+ on a phone for" should crawl under a rock seriously. We have always seen that this behavior is totally wrong, else we would still have 0.3MP camera with polyphonic tones on our phones. And having owned several 5MP phones, the galaxy one is just decent but not enoughy for me and quality of 5MP phone is nowhere as good as a good 8MP one (i have still a Samsung S8300 Tocco Ultra which really does great shots).
I bought it because i needed a good replacement phone and it's among the best we can buy currently while waiting for next generation with 8MP+ and 2ghz/dual core stuff / 1080P recording.. I can't wait for 2011.
Meanwhile, enjoy this one!
hendra, 30 Jul 2010hello soon i will purchase this phone can u all let me know does the signal,wifi,gps,touch sc... moreIt works like a dream! Everything I have been working on during the past 3 days works perfect. Setup is easy, lots of cool features, signal, I gues depending on the provider, mine is much better than previous SE.
1. Nice display
2. LIght, Shiny, and looks good
3. Good camera
1. Battery drains fast
2. Easy of use - difficult when compared to iphone
3. Screen is too sensitive and takes time to get used to
4. Needs to be handled delicately
5. Poor sound quality
Verdict: I like my Iphone better any day

rob, 31 Jul 2010people dont but this bad quality (bad back plastic) phone buy motorola xt720 and use for sever... moreYeah, right NOT
Take a look at the benchmarks (browser speed + GPU), SuperAmoled screen, battery life, weight just to name some better points.
Who cares about the 8 megapix cam?
If you want a good camera, use a dslr camera not a phone ;-)
Even the old Nokia N86 has a better camera than the Motorola ;-)
About the plastic back cover:
Ever read or seen a video about a broken one?
It's designed just perfect!
Light weight, perfect to hold in your hand with a very neat fit to the phone, cheap to replace if you get scratches on it after heavy use without a case and no blocking for the antenna signal :-)
hey guys, i realy2 love this phone. and i'll buy this one next month.. but, can Swype technology used in all languages?
