I love this phones. I sell phones for a living so I know my stuff. It was either the Xperia x10 (but thats limited to Android 2.1 at beast) or te HTC desire but I had a really bad time with the touch pro. So Samsung it was and I don't regret a thing. This is as complete a phone as I have ever had and I have had some quite decent ones. It gives everything an Iphone does but better and more.
-No Itunes (thank god!)
-If u dont like the look of the interface u can go nutz and change it easily
-there are more than enough easy to access apps on android market.
-support the new goodgle nagigator which has free voice navigation (android 2+ only, get it at google mobile website for free, voice nav disn't available for apple or symbian lol).
-Although it is plastic feels solg. Besides if you want a phone that is relatively expensive and has so many internal part its always a good idea to get a case for it)
Lastly should note that Samsung make pretty much all of apples parts. They are in no way a dudd manufacturer. They brought out a solid phone and dont have a need to bring out an incremental improvement like apple (iphone 3, 3g, 3gs ect.)
If samsung release a galaxy 2 there will be a massive difference and you will know it.
I'm not really an apple hater (they make me so much commision, however I like a phone i can use in the way ii would like and not the way apples says I may.
When the upgrade for 2.2 comes out, it will have flash capability, and the speed of the phone will be much faster. At present 2.1 doesn't use all the 512mb of ram the Galaxy has. 2.2 however does, so the speed will be crazy good and better power management.
As for support on the phone, Samsung is taking that aspect seriously and also you have the added backup of Android. Its like buying a computer from dell. Dell can do whatever they want and provide whatever upgrades they want but realistically you never really have to talk to dell until theres a problem, everything you would want for tat computer comes from microsoft for your Windows OS.
Laslty get the Snes immuators for this phone so fun.
If your stll not convinced about this phone, check out the quake 3 demo on it, its a powerhouse! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaaicSzzHeE
Shane, 27 Jul 2010The ONLY problem with this phone is the battery life. It is appalling.So how long your battery lasts? Mine lasts for 4 hours of use (gaming), but I'm not complaining:). Anyway I grow tired of browsing, playing with the phone before the battery is depleted. Anyway, I can watch more than a full movie with one charge and that's OK with me.

You are just babling against Amoled on the Samsung Galaxy S which is viewed as the iPhone 4 killer (and for the right reasons). Anyway, you know very well that iPhone 4 loses signal because you touch its antenna, and all the lost signal is pumped in your body. Since the signal is the microwave region, it like baking your hand in a miniature weak microwave oven. And BTW even if you would be right, any radiation (be it UV or microwave) decreases with the power of two of the distance. So in the iPhone case the distance is 0 while in SGS case it is 30-40 cm. But you are not right and you know it.

Previously i used to be sony ericsson fan, but from the time samsung created omnia2, I have changed my mind, now i'm looking forward to buy galaxy S it seems wonderful, but i have one feedback i hope one day samsung create a hp with higher resolution screen so we are abble to watch HD video and xeon flash for perfect photos, keep it up samsung
Is there any application available in Android Markerplace, which similar to WhatsApp, which allow messenging with iPhone & BBM?
Shane, 27 Jul 2010The ONLY problem with this phone is the battery life. It is appalling.Because most of web pages are on white background and then Super AMOLED consumes 4 times more power than a classic TFT-LCD.

unlocking, jailbreaking mobile phones is now LEGALIZED...!
this also means that if you dont want the looks of samsung galaxy s, we can now choose to buy alternatives like Vibrant or Captivate? right?..

If you just smoked a cigar will you get lung cancer next day? No. But if you smoke everyday a cigar for 6 months? Maybe no. But if you smoke 10 years 20 cigars per day? Then some will get lung cancer for sure. And it needs much effort to quit and convince the cigar manufacturing and the government to shut down the tobacco industry. In the same way it works for new inventions in technology. To watch close to the eyes for 30 minutes Super Bright AMOLED, obviously close to the eyes because it is a cell phone it is as you smoke a cigar you will not lose your sight. And you may give over a while the old Super Bright AMOLED phone to your kids to be quiet and play and read web which they'll do for 4 hours a day in the next 5 years then you give them a chance to get vision problems when they'll get in their 50s or 60s and of course you will be passed away by then and you can't even see the effect of your choice. That is the real life and it repeats in cycles over different issues but having the same story line: the ignorance.
[deleted post]Give us some facts,links or any thing to support ur so called fact.......Y do u insist in writin this crap again and again.....any motive?man u r unbelievable.......4 u anonymous "stop usin mobile as a whole,as it can cause cancer....." that way u can save a lot of money. I dont get it When samsung is soaring heights people come with some nausiating comments...Do accept the fact that Samsung is doin somthing........Loads od phone use AMOLED....Here are some of the names Nokia N8,HTC legend,Desire,Nexus One,N9,N86,N85,Acer Stream,HP iPAQ Glisten,Dell Thunder,Dell Lightning,LG GW910 Panther,Vodafone 360 H2.Still u put up in this section means u use TFT screen technology and u don't want others using a technology far superior than urs. Dont be childish. In this centuary we have seen rise of technology far beyond we can expect. Prove ur fact instead of writin crap again and again. This only misleads some people who don't kno about this. If u r that keen about health stop using petrol,diesel,deodrants,ac....which are also harmful for our environment which in turn harms everyone(not only u). PROVE IT. Else SHOVE OFF
The spec. list on the Galaxy S is amazing & so as the price (i saw it last week for the eqv. of 300 USD & change) , but the materials quality looked really cheep to me (nothing compared to the Spec. inside)
I was really considering one , by reading about how amazing the screen is , the fast CPU , the HD capabilities of the camera & the Android 2.1
but the plastic on it was a huge turn off for me , I guess i 'll keep looking for MileStone instead , plus my pervious experiences with Samsung phones is not good , don't get me wrong i think samsung is a great company , but i don't think I 'll a Samsung phone
No offense to Galaxy S users , but thats just me
