Got mine yesterday .. and it's really nice. very fast processor, and the storage is abundant.
some minor cons (coming from my previous phone: G1): - no LED indicator light, which is handy.
lots of preloaded programs that you cannot uninstall (and they're trial versions). I am still missing the track ball that was on the G1, and many other current phones. it will take me some time to get used to this.
other than this, the phone is great, and I love it!

fadz, 11 Sep 2010yes, it does work on at&t 2g only. No 3g.Correction.. Once unlocked it will work on the AT&T 3G aswell.. the Samsung Vibrant has the AT&T 3G band.. look it up on the XDA forums..

Alatosis, 29 Aug 2010No flash for camera, plastic casing makes phone feel "cheap", horrible battery life,... moreAlatosis,Hmmm you are moving to Nokia from Android. Checkout Nokia forum at the Nokia website. Nokia had been mass producing crap since almost 2 years, E-71, E-72, E75 then N-97, all those so-called expensive business phones have memory leaks, MFE use causes memory to get full with 2-3 months. Every 2-3 months you need to hard reset the phone and rebuild/reload your data. Hundreds of customers are crying at the Nokia forum and many of them decade long user of Nokia had decided to finally dump Nokia for good - I am one of them... Good luck with your switch.
Anonymous, 05 Sep 2010Can we use I9000s battery in this phone to improve talk/stamdby time, both have 1500 mAh ....s... moreEven i have been facing a lot of problems with the battery life. I guess Samsung is supplying the same hardware to AT&T, T-Mobile and for i9000. GSMARENA specs say that vibrant has a Samsung Hummingbird processor whereas Captivate and the i9000 have an ARM processor. May be this is what causes the vibrant to die down in half the time its brothers do. As per GSMARENA captivate will last for 13 hrs and 30 mins on a 2G call whereas vibrant would last a mere 6 hrs and 30 mins for the same !@#$@!@#@!@!????

(Canada) Returned the second one also. Phone locks up shuts down and cannot be turned on. Have to remove the battery and re-insert or soft restart. Happened once a day for two weeks. Great phone...when it's on. If Samsung can figure this issue out along with the GPS issue it would be a superb phone.
Plastic backing but sturdy
Front glass very strong
Good call quality
FM radio on some models
Front camera on some models
Frequent freezes (phone goes unresponsive, needs re-start)
No flash for camera
Battery life - average
Can we use I9000s battery in this phone to improve talk/stamdby time, both have 1500 mAh ....someone plz reply ASAP, i m giving this phone away for this very reason....also is there FM radio in this phone?? didnt see it any where on the phone
i have had this phone for a few days now and i'm enjoying it alot! i haven't even hit the core of what this phone can do so i can't wait for that. the phone is a bit big, but i'm sure no one was complaining about the size of the iphone 3g, were you? the build is just fine and durable enough and there it will be flash enabled with the froyo update (i'm in canada and it's not out yet). every phone has it's positive and negative feedbacks and opinions from individuals. just break it down into what is important in the end. for example, this phone does not have flash. but it's not suppose to be SLR type quality anyway. i have a digital cam and that's what i would use for better pics. this phone is sick and i would so recommend it. trust me, i was bouncing between the iphone and galaxy S with my research. i'm even surprised that i chose the galaxy S that i posted it on facebook...haha. anyway, it's actually nice to go against the trend. i usually follow the trend. by the way, rumours abound the iphone 4Gs is supposedly to come out next july 2011. just great! more money to give to apple. sucks! try this phone out, it AWESOME! later!
