Does anybody know if this phone is coming in June for T-mobile? or at least when it's coming out?
Weird but I read this:
Here's where things get really interesting. Apparently Verizon and AT&T will also offer a similar Galaxy S but Sprint's version will have a sliding QWERTY. Weird, right? There's more. Some of these seem like more of a stretch than others, but whatever. If we're right, remember where you heard this stuff first.
The phone will be Android 2.1 but should be 2.2 when it arrives.
Sprint's handset will arrive later than the others
Somehow, the Hummingbird processor is out and the Snapdragon chip is in.
All but AT&T's model will have a camera flash
You want flash? Buy the pink N8 and put some shiny stars on it and take pics of your friends all day to put it on MySpace or something.
It's better this way.. Not everyone will buy MY PHONE and therefore I will be one of the few ELITE CATS that will be enjoying the MASTERPIECE of this machinery!
IT'S MY PHONE... MINE I TELL YOU!
Samsung please add LED flash to the phone. I cannot believe you would leave something so basic out. I'm with T-mobile, and if it does have LED flash then I will buy it. Samsung you talk about hd recording, but what good is it without LED Flash?
Come on Samsung, adding in a LED flash can't be that expensive. Don't lose millions of customers over not adding in flash
This phone is gonna be so awesome!!!!! The only con i see in this is the fact that there is no LED flash for the camera. If this phone gets a flash, them i'm sold!!! i have t-mobile, and i hope it comes out in June for t-mobile. I'll be a little bit over the edge if it comes in July simply because i am a guy without a lot of patience, but if it comes out in June then im sold.
To be honest, i really like the galaxy s, but in the way of features and design, i DO PREFER the samsung i8520 beam.
Yes, for the beam: 8mpx with hd recording plus led flash. Especially u seem to have a projector in ur hand when u carry it.
Don't think the phone will be a hit. Too big, too expensive, no flash, video not so good from the review, camera only 5mp,...etc.
But Samsung makes so many phones, their phones must not be perfect otherwise nobody will buy the next one.
Tmobile will get this one I9000 label as T959. Thought AT&T will get it?
expansy-usa preorder for $615.00 but 3G listed as 900/2100? I thought it's either 900/1900/2100 or 850/1900/2100?
does this have continuous autofocus video recording? any sources? or will it be a wait till release date for a proper review.
So close to being a top of the range phone...
Screen 480 x 800 pixels, 4.0 inches....nice
CPU ARM Cortex A8 1GHz processor....Very nice
Standard battery, Li-Ion 1500 mAh...Should keep it going for a few days.
And then they put a crappy 5 MP camera in it..
What a waste of F in time.
Is it just me or are they taking the hiss.
so the final retail unit really doesn't have flash? even LED? sooooo dosappointed..
Hands-on here !!! Cheers
Seems to me if we take these comments as a sample of what buyer reception will be in the market, Samsung has a bit of a problem with the Flash issue. I'm surprised at the number of people who say they wonít but because of that omission. And there are enough competing models WITH a flash to make this a major deal beaker for poor old Samsung. I doubt they will fix it either, that prototype looks pretty complete to me. All thatís left is software tweaks. Here is what I think: this fone was designed to pre-empt the iphone 4. They added the features they thought apple would add to their new device. It was rumored for months that apple would finally add video call, and it was reasonable for them to expect apple to want an upgrade of the display. But I think they probably though apple would not bother with a flash. And all Samsung wanted was a phone to be compared to iphone. Thatís why it looks like iphone, even the interface cribs some of the iphone aesthetic. They got one guess wrong, and itís gonna cost them in sales. They may get a leg over as this is still one of the few droids that will do video calls, (HTC really needs to do something about that).
Teenagers who want to take photos with their phone in the dark can buy Nokia N8. People who want a real smartphone will get the Galaxy S.
Does Galaxy S have continuous autofocus while recording HD video like in Samsung Wave and SE Vivaz?
