Samsung Galaxy S might look like an iPhone wannabe, but its huge, vibrant screen and smart-phone features makes it more than just another copy. This model played to its strengths by having great hardware and mostly leaving the software side of things to Google's Android operating system.
The Galaxy S looks very similar to the iPhone models, with a black plastic case and a gunmetal-grey trim. On the front there are two touch-sensitive, flat buttons and a single mechanical home button, lending the whole phone a sleek and pared-down look that sets it apart from other button-laden phones that run Android, such as the HTC Desire.
The model has a 102mm (4-inch) behemoth, and yet the handset manages to feel shockingly light, at only 119g. Some people will miss the heft of a giant, heavy smart phone, but I loved the Galaxy S's lightness. The huge screen is the best part of this particular galaxy, it's the Super AMOLED kind, which you can only get on Samsung phones.
The rest of the hardware doesn't stay behind, great connectivity support is set within, such as BT, WiFi and more, allowing great fire sharing and browsing through the web.
The camera is pretty good, though its focus is sometimes not stable. Still, very good quality on the pictures taken.
This mobile is working really fast, and I hadn't seen it get stuck, or freeze once during the time I had it for the testing. There's also an FM radio on-board, and, if you have a Samsung TV, you can use the phone as a remote control.
Android mostly handles the software features, which I think is a very good call - Samsung's own attempts weren't always succesful to say the least. Android is Google's software for powering smart phones, and it includes innumerable treats, especially if you use Google products like Gmail. For example, Google Maps is available on plenty of phones, but, on Android phones, including the Galaxy S, it comes with a free turn-by-turn navigation feature.
You will also get access to the Android Market, which is packed with apps that you can easily download and add to your phone, increasing its capabilities and features to an almost infinite extent.
Even if you never download an app, Samsung has made sure there are plenty of good ones pre-installed on this model. One of them is Swype. It's an alternative keyboard that makes writing on the screen faster, because you just have to run your finger over the letters that you want, rather than picking out each one. To activate Swype, you just have to hold your finger on any text field. If you don't like it, you can switch it off just as easily.
There are some problems with non Andriod apps, such as microsoft outlook which doesn't sync at times with events, but there should be a version update to be downloaded from Samsung's site.
Another nice feature is that you can load up the seven home screens with widgets. Some include live updates, providing you with up-to-the-minute information from social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter. As with apps, you can download widgets from the Android Market, and Samsung has also chucked some of its own onto the phone. They look good, if you like Samsung's playful style. You don't have to use Samsung's own widgets if you don't want to though, and you can move them and remove them at will.
