Whoever's giving bad comments about the phone obviously hasn't had it or has something to do with Chinese and Taiwanese jealousy toward South Korea in general. I visited Seoul for about 3 months their city is comparable to Tokyo, Japan. China and Taiwan still have a long way to go.

You are such a bad liar.

Dee, 22 Jul 2010Do not worry what anyone here is saying about the screen its beautiful. No problems. Everythin... moreI did the research at TMOBILE and AT&T stores, bought one and returnd back. It is bad, worse than TFT. Nobody in US buys such Galaxies, all are on waiting list for iPhone 4. Sad to me that such Super AMOLED is really worse than TFT IPS, I hoped for better. You cannot use it outdoors; not brighter then TFT. The colors are like on 256 with dithering, you cannot see shades of basic colors without a dotted pattern. GPS is slow. ATT loaded it with crap for navigation and others to make money on our expenses. Too big to get in pants. 3.5 is the max portable. Small letters are fuzzy for 800*480, it has to do with PenTile which share some color sub pixels between logical pixels, it is not a triplet of RGB associated with a logical pixel, so for certain hues of small fonts, the strokes get zigzag and fuzzy. Android is slow all apps are on Java, interpreted code. The Android browser is buggy, slow, worse than Opera and Safary at rendering layout.
Do not worry what anyone here is saying about the screen its beautiful. No problems. Everything is sharp. Matter what I'm on it rite now as I type. Awesome. When I bought this phone I wasn't thinking about buying a TV. Its a cell phone.and the screen blows the competition away.for a cell phone! So write about things people care about. Like how it works the way a super phone is supposed to work, fast and reliable.no wonder this phone is selling like hot cakes all around the world. The phone back up the specs. Unlike other phones that have been rushed just to stay in competition with the market.speed, accuracy, fun, sharp, light, just on point. Hard to say that about a product these days.Go to tmobile or at&t and give a shot, I bet you will love it!
Raptor, 22 Jul 2010You wrote "Samsung said that TFT will never catch up with Super AMOLED. Yes, after years ... moreUsing several micron thick cell separators, the light emitted by OLED just passes through such thin isolator. I did not say that OLED will not find applicability and will not evolve in long term, but it will take at least 5 years from now to see a TV set screen of 50 inches that is as bright and clear as a 2010 TFT with LCD backlight and be manufactured in millions and sold for less than $1000 a piece. By then you can buy Super AMOLED and thus to fund Samsung for research, the others will enjoy a good TFT like that one from iPhone and will buy OLEDs when they are really better than the best TFTs. In the meantime Google's OLED mobiles got down and Apple with a real buggy antenna and old TFT got up. I see in US nobody buying Galaxy or other OLED mobiles, all are dissatisfied by its bad visibility outdoors and its low resolution.

I think it is a BS that AMOLED are doomed by too high thickness of black layers for subpixel isolation. What prohibits metallic layers instead of black ink material to isolate the subpixels? Just several micron layer is enough.

Anonymous, 19 Jul 2010Samsung said that TFT will never catch up with Super AMOLED. Yes, after years of research you ... moreThe Super AMOLED display does not have any font problems. Im comparing the screens of the iPhone 4gen and this Vibrant and they both look amazing. But the Vibrant has a brighter screen. the Colors POP more on the Vibrant. Alot of people who left T mobile to go with AT&T to get a Iphone 4th gen are coming back. But At&t is smart by releasing the Captivate. But the Vibrant looks cleaner. It looks and feels like a super phone. I'm not hating on the Captivate. Its the same specs. But for some reason the Vibrant looks brighter. T mobile has been selling these like Hotcakes. I dont believe it to be a sleeper. its a true super phone. We all know that At&t just released the Captivate because they did not want to loose the customers that were upset with the iPhone 4th Gen. Bottom line is that Samsung pulled one out of the hat. And its going to produce numbers. Ive waited a while to buy a phone. But once i played around with alot of super phones from different carriers this one sold me. Size is just rite, the feel, the look, the speed, samsung touchWiz 3.0 is awesome mixed with Android 2.1 forget bout it! lol. and the Vibrant is getting the 2.2 software upgrade in a few weeks or less. And T mobile is drooping the HSPDA+ in a few days. and the Vibrant has it. Its fast now but just wait in a couple days. Super Upgrade to the t Mobile network speed. Its such a bonus added to the already awesome speeds this phone possess.
Anonymous, 19 Jul 2010No, I tested AMOLED versus TFT in T-MOBILE and AT&T stores, in San Francisco, California. ... moreI have both an iPhone 4g and the Vibrant. I am literally holding them next to each other as I type. The Vibrant has a far superior picture and doesn't require me to hold it like I'm having a tea party in order to get reception.
