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 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 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...

Samsung Galaxy S 4G Review (video)

 

The Samsung Galaxy S 4G is the first entrant to the line with HSPA+ support, but is the speed supported by a quality device worthy of your two-year contract? Samsung's Galaxy S 4G is finally here, but is it going to live up to the hype? Will you be...

Samsung Galaxy S 4G Review - Android Phone Reviews by MobileTechReview

 

Last year's Samsung Vibrant, T-Mobile's version of the Galaxy S, was a hit: T-Mobile sold large numbers of what was then an Android Superphone with a Super AMOLED display and fast 1GHz Hummingbird CPU. Roll around to early 2011 and the Vibrant is...

Excellent display, solid camera with good video recording, 4G HSPA speeds are great

Attractive but plasticky, 1GHz Hummingbird no longer the cream of the CPU crop

The Samsung Galaxy S 4G is an evolutionary upgrade to the Vibrant. Think of it as the Vibrant with 2011 tweaks: 4G, a front video chat camera and Froyo with Flash 10.1. If you already own a Samsung Vibrant, you likely won’t want to shell out the out of...

Now here's a something great from the Galaxy – the Samsung Galaxy series – and it's called the Samsung Galaxy S I9000. Probably the most expensive Samsung model out in the market to date, this Android-powered phone is excellent in all aspects of form,...

Excellent functionality, excellent features ; excellent OS

All-plastic exterior is unimaginative and a ; fingerprint magnet

One of the best phones we have seen this year, the Samsung Galaxy S I9000 is poised to gain huge market shares on the high-end mobile phone category with its good hardware, excellent features, and even more excellent functionality. I’d like to think...

Samsung Galaxy S i9000 - Take Me To Your Leader

 

Gombae! Samsung is fashionably late to the Android 2.1 party but oh, what an entrance it makes with the Galaxy S i9000. Have other super-smartphones met their match in this mix of Super AMOLED beauty and Android 2.1 brains? Find out in our detailed...

Samsung I9000 Galaxy S

 

As far as Android phones go, the I9000 Galaxy S seems to be towards the very top end of the pile. In addition to the large screen and fast processor, the Galaxy S boasts 3.5G support with maximum download speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps and uploads of up to...

Review: Samsung Galaxy S Captivate vs. the iPhone 4

 

It's no secret that I'm a bit of an Apple fan girl… and a Dell fan girl. A Canon chick, a Belkin babe, a Samsung sweetheart… sheet, I'm even digging Sunbeam pretty hard right now with their bomb electric blankets and space heaters.

It’s a high powered device that’s as useful for work as it is for play – much like an iPhone 4. Plus, having an Android smartphone will surely give you more nerd cred than an iPhone if that’s what you’re after, and who isn’t these days? Nerd cred....
