I think there should be a scale in these comments regarding prejudices. So many conflicting stories, "battery lasts 4 hours", "mine lasted 14", "ran 15 programs in background didn't slow at all", "opened 3 programs and it bogged down". I really enjoy this site, but my god, this is driving me crazy.
The best info i have so far is that I meet people that work in phones stores in canada with employee disounts for all phones, and they have bought full price, no plan android phones out of the US and love the fact they are not using one of their own iphones.
Stop the insanity people, let's restrict reviews to those who know what the hell they are doing, have read the manual and have had the phone for at least 4 days.
To those that got the phone and are now selling it, have you not asked about trialing the phone and seeing if you like it before buying, if not, you deserve the fate you got. I trialed a SE X10, beautiful device, phone didn't work the way i wanted it, got my $500 back. end of story. No crying.

The Galaxy S phones will probably be on the the best phones released in a long while. It breaks the mold and raises the bar. Motorola Droids can't compete, and the HTC Evo is close, but I'd give it to the Galaxy. So far, only ATT's Galaxy version has delivered, but, there are limitations that you don't have with Sprint and TMobile. I just test ran Sprint in anticipation of the Epic and the service was call quality was horrible in NYC, plus download speed was worse than Tmobile, ATT was best in download speed. 2.5 Mns avg..Sprint at 1.0 avg...TMob about 1.8. The longer the delays for Verizon the worse off for them. This phone is HOT!
NO!, 10 Aug 2010No flash no buy.It is as simple as that.there's a night mode...it's amazing!
NO!, 10 Aug 2010No flash no buy.It is as simple as that.You could just wait for the Android 2.2 (Froyo) update it supports Flash 10.1 Beta. It's supposed to come out at the end of September. And trust me this is a great phone.

Or just say into Voice Dialer: "SD Card" and in opened window "Enable USB Mass Storage" twice for both flash storages. That simple.
The Voice Dealer from Applications is good to place on front screen anyway
My new, out of the box, Vibrant from Bell can NOT connect to any computer! With out a connection I could not upload my music and videos. The MTP application crashes on the phone!
I found this fix, but not on any Samsung or Bell support web sites. "Buyer beware", crappy tech support :(
Menu > Settings > SD card & phone storage > then under 'Internal SD Card' - Unmount SD card > Format SD Card > Mount SD card
Obed, 09 Aug 2010Im like a kid waiting for santa....Can't wait to have it in my hands.Wow I can't wait to get this phone I'm getting it friday and I am so excited! It's like Christmas again.(:
i just got mines yesterday and i love it does everything i need and more super fast... great phone !
Had both the Vibrant and Captivate, Returned the Vibrant. The plastic shell seemed flimsy, and weak. Captivate is metal. ATT a faster download than TMobile. I am going to give Sprint a shot. Android OS is really superior to other OS on the market right now. Super Amoled prob best display right now, Spoke to local ATT employee, Apple 4G s not selling, getting whipped by Captivate and HTC Aria.
Tmobile is giving this phone to me at $49.95.... and I so can't wait to get it next week. I wonder how the kindle on it is like.
