Samsung Vibrant Looks Like an iPhone, Has Battery Life to Match

 

Looks like an iPhone, smells like an iPhone, tastes like an iPhone. But brother, this ain't no iPhone.

While the Samsung Galaxy S Captivate wages a potentially fruitless war versus the iPhone 4 over at AT&T, in many ways, its sibling, the Galaxy S Vibrant, faces a more crowded Android field at T-Mobile. But in a feature-by-feature comparison, the...

Bright, colorful, glossy 4-inch AMOLED screen ; Google Android OS v2.1 ; 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording ; 16GB built-in memory ; Light, sleek, uncluttered exterior

Touch controls backlighting out-of-sync with screen ; No camera flash ; No front-facing camera ; Power switch acts odd in camera mode ; Inconsistent 3G connectivity on T-Mobile

Samsung’s Vibrant has become the best Android phone on T-Mobile, and even outperforms its AT&T sibling, the Captivate.

The T-Mobile version of Samsung's killer Galaxy S line of super Android phones, the Samsung Vibrant ($200 with a two-year contract, as of July 12, 2010) stands apart from its siblings due to the high-quality multimedia apps the carrier has preloaded on...

Great multimedia features and apps ; Stunning Super AMOLED display

Camera lacks a flash ; Interface can lag a bit

The Samsung Vibrant boasts a gorgeous Super AMOLED display and a bevy of multimedia features, but some users might be disappointed by the absence of a flash on its camera.

The Samsung Vibrant boasts a brilliant Super AMOLED touch screen and comes preloaded with a number of entertainment goodies, including a full-length copy of "Avatar." The Android-based smartphone also offers 16GB of internal memory, full wireless...

The phone feels plasticky and slick. Battery life isn't the greatest. There's no camera flash.

Sleek and fast, the Samsung Vibrant is one of T-Mobile's top smartphones for entertainment, but its feature set takes a toll on the battery life.

Samsung Vibrant (T-Mobile)

 

The Vibrant connects to T-Mobile's and foreign 3G networks, as well as to 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi networks. The phone also has Bluetooth 3.0, which sounds exciting but doesn't offer any real-world advantages over version 2.1 of Android. Unlike AT&T's...

Fast. 1-GHz processor handles graphics well. Bright screen. PC syncing options. Great photos and videos. Free, full copy of Sims 3 included

Media store not ready yet. No voice dialing over Bluetooth. No tethering

The Samsung Vibrant is T-Mobile's super-phone, and it delivers a lot of power on some really inexpensive monthly plans.
