Speed Bump: Samsung’s Galaxy Phone Gets Upped to 4G

 

With mobile handsets stuck in a pattern of incremental updates, at least Samsung's Galaxy S 4G is an example of baby steps done right.

Samsung Galaxy S 4G

 

As a part of its aggressive 4G plans, T-Mobile launched a 4G version of the popular Samsung Galaxy S phones. But unfortunately, the Galaxy S 4G ($200 with a two-year contract from T-Mobile; price as of 3/1/11) does not have the specs of the hot...

HSPA+ is fast ; Gorgeous Super AMOLED display ; Attractive design

No camera flash ; 4G connectivity is hit-or-miss

The Samsung Galaxy S 4G is a solid, powerful phone, but it doesn't have the specs to compete with the next generation of smartphones.

Samsung Galaxy S 4G (T-Mobile)

 

The Samsung Galaxy S 4G has 4G connectivity, a front-facing camera for video calls, and a larger battery. Android 2.2 offers impressive data speeds and good call quality. Other highlights include a rich and vibrant Super AMOLED touch screen and a...

No camera flash. The Galaxy S 4G has less internal memory than the Vibrant. There was some slight sluggishness with some tasks.

The Samsung Galaxy S 4G is a fantastic Android smartphone for T-Mobile customers, delivering fast data speeds and other improvements, but Vibrant owners should be fine holding off for now.

Samsung Galaxy S 4G (T-Mobile)

 

A speedy data connection and lots of entertainment options make this Android phone an excellent choice for T-Mobile customers.

The Galaxy S 4G delivers the fastest speeds yet for T-Mobile customers and adds some welcome enhancements, including a front-facing camera and longer-lasting battery. While we wish Samsung had also included a faster processor for $199, this is now the...

Samsung I9000 Galaxy S vs. Apple iPhone 4: Collision course

 

It's not like you're out of options. Here's one. Another one would be to get a friend's iPhone 4 and another friend's Galaxy S, put them on a table, close your eyes and… tell your friends to bugger off. Or you can do it the old-fashioned way. Flip a what?

Samsung Galaxy S Review

 

The Android smartphone segment keeps getting stronger, and the Samsung Galaxy S looks set to be a key player in 2010. Not only does it get the company's coveted Super AMOLED display, but a 1GHz processor, 720p HD video recording and plenty of wireless...

Samsung I9000 Galaxy S review: From outer space

 

Our homepage is the natural home of the deadliest smartphone carnivores. We normally don't mind but this time is different. Are we about to start feeling a wee bit nervous or what. It's a beast that tops the food chain, instilling fear and terror...

Quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support ; 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support ; 4" 16M-color Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of WVGA (480 x 800 pixel) resolution ; Android OS v2.1 with TouchWiz 3.0 UI customization ; 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird...

No Flash support for the web browser ; No flash for the camera ; No dedicated camera key ; The all-plastic body is a real fingerprint magnet ; Feeble loudspeaker

The Samsung I9000 Galaxy S has so much muscle that trying to impose your will with brute force is pointless. No sir, this creature needs to be befriended, patted on the back until it starts to trust you. But once it lets you jump on its back it will...

Samsung Galaxy S 4G (T-Mobile)

 

The Galaxy S 4G is a quad-band EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) and dual-band 4G HSPA+ (1700/2100 MHz) device with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. T-Mobile's HSPA+ network promises theoretical download speeds of up to 21 Mbps, and in real life about half that speed. I...

Slim design. Gorgeous screen. Very fast 4G HSPA+ data speeds. Excellent music and video. Solid battery life

Buggy TV app. Only a modest refresh over the Vibrant

The Samsung Galaxy S 4G, with its faster data connection, refreshed styling, and Android 2.2 OS, is a stellar performer that doubles as a great laptop modem.

Samsung Galaxy S 4G Review

 

Last summer was a watershed moment for Android. The HTC EVO 4G, Motorola DROID X and Samsung Galaxy S lineup dominated the cellular landscape and rightfully so. The Samsung Vibrant was the Galaxy S variant for T-Mobile and was the first Galaxy S phone...

Samsung GALAXY S I9000 Review

 

The Samsung GALAXY S I9000 comes with a huge 4” Super AMOLED display, significantly larger than the only other such screen on the market – the 3.3” one of the Samsung Wave. This gorgeous window to the phone's soul is hinged to another novelty from...
