SHOCKING ONLY 256 MB Ram, I got HTC TOUCH DIAMOND 2 Which has 256 MB ram, and applications like Internet expolrer and Google maps dont run properly on that. Its like ram memory is not enogh for these applicaitons they close automaticaly. I guess SAMSUNG HAS MADE A BIG MISTAKE WITH ONLY 256 MB RAM, HTC DESIRE 576 MB RAM, EVEN HTC LEGEND 384 MB RAM, XPERIA X10 384 MB RAM, HTC HD2 448 MB RAM.
Not having Flash (Both Camera & Browser) is not a big problem, but ONLY 256 MB Ram, IT SUCKS,
I was gona buy this Phone, but now will think twice.
Bingo, 22 May 2010Really can't understand why Gsmarena seems to like it so much...
No free GPS navigation solut... moreGSMarena, always make good an unbiased reviews that are actually based on facts and good knowledge of the mobile world.
Those things you're talking about are not essential in a phone reviews, it's more user taste oriented. For example I never used the radio in my phone, so I won't have a problem if a phone don't have it. But for other people it may be their deal breaker.
You're talking about dedicated camera key, flash and some more thing that may be a deal breaker for some people but that aren't essential at all for others(I never use my dual led flash on my HD2 except for lighting the path at night). You can't tag a phone as a failure just because it doesn't fit your needs and taste, if you want a cameraphone, get the N8, vivaz or omnia HD. If you want a smartphone you can get the galaxy, desire or X10. There is a phone for anyone's taste.
okp, 22 May 2010looks like another great device made by samsumg...i have just upgraded to an omnia hd..then ou... moreWhat do you mean by n8 is crap.? Though it dont have Super Amoled screen and fast cpu, it dont meant N8 is crap. There are many services N8 boast but Your plastic Galaxy S dont have it.
looks like another great device made by samsumg...i have just upgraded to an omnia hd..then ou comes the wave ,,i9000 galaxy,,i no longer have enough money to keep up...N8 vs i9000 would be a good fight,,,12 mp againts the super amold screen...touch wiz android against symbian 3,,,.nokia vs samsung,, nokia will win because of name only ..... But nokia have had a lot of duds lately..if the n8 is crap it will be a major blow for nokia ...as for the great iphone,' its only great in the minds of its brainwashed users...i have an idea!!! all iphone users make a short video about how good it is,,,use the video cam on your fone,,,,,im sorry,,i forgot!!! You cant.....
with 256 mb ram i cant ran windows xp on my old pc for a cellphone its ok
Really can't understand why Gsmarena seems to like it so much...
No free GPS navigation solution
No Flash support for the web browser
No flash for the camera
No dedicated camera key
For me it is a big NO, too many letdowns.
anony, 22 May 2010does it have a dedicated GPU lke N8, Iphones and N900?... even though it ran fast at 1ghz CPU,... moreSamsung' hummingbird SoC(System on Chip) packs :
- 1Ghz ARM Cortex-A8(slightly faster than Snapdragon)
- PowerVR SGX540 GPU(3x faster than Snapdragon)
This phone will have much better graphic responsiveness for the UI and most important for 3D games.
This Chip is the top of the top in the smartphone market for now.
Snapdragon is also a SoC, so when we say snapdragon or hummingbird we don't mean the CPU only. But people get it like that.
Check that if you want to know more about SoCs :
does it have a dedicated GPU lke N8, Iphones and N900?... even though it ran fast at 1ghz CPU, the graphic transition might not be that smooth compared with dedicated GPU...

Anonymous, 22 May 2010All you guys complaining at the low RAM, have you seen the speed of this device in the videos?... moreyeah you are right ... RAM should not be a problem
speed is already quite good and in the future when Froyo arrived (stable) it is going to be better than this time as Froyo is already 2-5X faster than Eclair
I love reading how all you iphone clones bag samsung. You are using a samsung phone. Processor, memory, music chip, screen, all samsung components. you should be thanking samsung for giving you such a nice device!!
Its not on there front page yet but here is there review O_o http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_i9000_galaxy_s-review-478.php
All you guys complaining at the low RAM, have you seen the speed of this device in the videos? Clearly RAM isn't a problem, when it can run widgets and still be this speedy. We will have to see how it can handle a lot of applications at once, but I don't think RAM is a limitation on android phones like it is on computers or winmo phones.
Also, the fact that this looks like an iphone is a GOOD thing. The iphone is a very pretty device, with a nice user interface. It is just useless at all the other things. If Samsung have made an iphone running android that works well, and has more features than any other phone out there, then that is FANTASTIC. I would never buy an iphone, but I would absolutely buy a galaxy s.
The lack of flash is (to me) not important. I can understand some people being annoyed, but I don't think I have ever used my flash when taking pictures with my phone, as they never come out as good as they would with good lighting. That is just my opinion, though.
If it truly has 256MB of RAM, instead of 512, then it's a guaranteed FAIL as a top-end Android phone.
There's something fishy about the fact that Samsung refuses to release the full specifications for this phone (including RAM amount).
