Has samsung improved the build quality of these newer smartphones?
My reasons currently for avoiding this are just the no free gps, web browser has no flash, no camera flash. Main reason is that it has no stereo speakers. well those three reasons are impportant to me.
Samsung may in due time integrate flash support for web browser, this is no biggie but it should be included straight out the box as standard. Camera has no LED or xenon so you can't take a shot in relativley low light.
I'm sure it's an excellent piece of hardware & samsung are going to need lots of apps to start the phone. I'm still keeping hope for a HTC HD3 or the Evo 4G coming to Uk as it has WCDMA, UDMA, WIMAX, it can run 3.5G aswell as 4G. Nokia N8 or Samsung I8520 is my fav still as it includes all the hard tech I'm wanting in my next phone.
Samsung Galaxy S will be available as a SIM Free phone from June 1st in the UK, it will be available unlocked to all network operators allowing you to choose either a pay as you go or contract SIM card on the network of your choice. The initial retail price of the SIM Free Samsung Galaxy S i9000 will be £549.99 but this is sure to drop as other retailers offer the phone and competition sets in.
Just found out today that Samsung will give you 2 free Android updates. The phone will ship with Android 2.1 and an upgrade to 2.2 will be available and free shortly after launch after that you'll get another free upgrade to what ever the next Android software will be. Hope this helps.

Dell Streak was announced in May and probably will hit the market early June. dats about a month after announcement.

amigos, over at gsmarena they have a video of the touchscreen of the Galaxy Vs HTC. One of them makes the other look like a total noob. It's actually quite impressive how the one can be so much better than the other. Go to their blog now: blog (dot) gsmarena (dot) com

Which means that you only need pictures to have a resolution of 480x800. That would mean that 0.4 megapixel is enough.
So when looking at the pictures made on your Galaxy S, the 5 megapixel camera is about 12 times good enough for the camera screen. Long story short, it's obvious that the camera quality will not be the main bottleneck for the picturequality when watching pictures on the Galaxy S.
Hello ladies, just preordered this bad boy. Ask me anything on June 10th.

given everything this phone can do the only real advantage the screen brightness is lost to the poor samsung camera quality so whats the point of having a good screen im going to look at my cam pics more than dvd movies right. So now i wait for the next nokia with mameo OS the next n900 that is a complete phone. btw soon as nokia wants it can blow iphone out of the water because of the power of mameo. its linux same as iphone
I realize that this phone has a glass screen. I just want to know if it is a scratch resistant screen. Does anyone know?? Please reply!!!!!!!!!!
this phone looks great but i guarantee it wont sell that much just because of that camera flash that is missing. i am bothered by that problem but i would give the phone a try!
