Imran, 24 Mar 2010This is a great phone, although I would prefer 3.7 inch screen. Check out this video
http://w... morehey thanks for the vid, but that prototype phone does not have a flash camera.
That would be crazy if samsung left it out in the final version.
I think the next version will have xenon, as this has 1 LED
This is a great phone, although I would prefer 3.7 inch screen. Check out this video
This phone is super fast and remember it is not a retail version yet.
how many hours for capture a video?
how many battries does it come with?
Android has the fastest growing application store... So this phone has shitloads of apps to choose from.
Anonymous, 24 Mar 2010I agree with you. The Application Store is first problem with Samsung. I had Omnia HD too and ... moreIt easily can compete with iphone and RIM. The android app store is the most developing store of all. It's now at 50k apps, plus 57% of it's apps are free in contrast with iphone it has 150K apps but only some 11% free.
Moreover you're talking 50K apps when you still have a handful of android devices in the market(x10, desire didn't even release yet). with android's share rising(the forecast says that in NA android will ship some 12m unit, apple 13m a rise of 30%), the app store will get bigger I can tell you that by end of 2011 android's store will be as big as apple's if not bigger.
I know that the UI is probably still in it's early stages but if they are not going to add some features they will be way behind HTC sense and SE timescape/mediascape
Jean, 24 Mar 2010I'm sorry but no, samsung was not producing great phones.
The Omnia series failed. especially... moreI agree with you. The Application Store is first problem with Samsung. I had Omnia HD too and I sold my phone as My Omnia 2. I did not like the Symb. Program and size of the Omnia HD. Some Applications there but expensive and not same Android, Iphone or Blackberry.
This phone look like a winner but will not wast my money since can not compete with Iphone or BB as far as applications go. Thanks
A iphone with android. A good combination people!
If seen some short videos of this one. Amazingly fast!
Anonymous, 24 Mar 2010As the photos show... The Galaxy S does actually have an FM Radio application... Also, I think... moreI'm sorry but no, samsung was not producing great phones.
The Omnia series failed. especially the Omnia HD(I own one).
Their problem was that they used symbian as an OS(which is a failure). And then Bada(samsung's) which is not bad as OS but fails with the application store.
Their latest phones had great specs, magnificent screens but the wrong OS. Plus, there is barely no updates for their phones. Ex, I have been waiting for 4 months to have an update for the Omnia HD with kinetic scrolling(come on, it's the least you can ask for nowadays) and it didn't come out even though samsung said 4 months ago that they were working on it.
