Review: Samsung Galaxy S 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.

Stronger iteration of a solid design. Mostly smooth navigation thanks to a humming 1-GHz processor. Great call quality. Awesome battery life and power management. Gorgeous high-def 720p video (in well-lit environments). Ready for downloads and app-tion...

Accessing the movie storefront requires a tedious login process. Bloatware aplenty. Where’s my HDMI out? HSPA+ service is fantastically fast (where available). 4G to 3G to EDGE handoffs are often slow. White backgrounds often produce the dreaded...

Samsung Galaxy S 4G (T-Mobile)

 

The Samsung Galaxy S 4G is a refinement of the popular Vibrant on T-Mobile to include 4G capability, Android 2.2, and a front-facing VGA camera.

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.

Samsung's TouchWiz UI layer also looks a little different, but it's never been much of a draw. The phone features seven customizable home screens you can swipe between, plus colorful little boxes around all of the menu icons. Scrolling is fast and...

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 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 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’s Galaxy Book S is an ARM-based MacBook lookalike with LTE, 23-hour battery life, more

 

In addition to unveiling its new Galaxy Note 10 series , Samsung today also showcased the 13-inch Galaxy Book S. On the surface, the new Galaxy Book S looks a lot like the recently discontinued 12-inch MacBook , but under the hood, it could provide a...

Samsung Galaxy S 4G Android Smartphone Review

 

When it comes to smartphones and wireless data services, 4G is definitely one of the hottest features today. And while various wireless service providers are touting their 4G networks and upcoming plans for 4G, there are still a relatively small number...

Fast 1 GHz Hummingbird processor ; Gorgeous 4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen ; Thin & very lightweight ; microSD expansion slot

T-Mobile's 4G coverage is still somewhat limited ; Speed tests showed hit and miss scores

We're seeing a lot of hot phones hit the market lately. Of course, one of the most touted new features is 4G capabilities. As you can assume from its name, the Galaxy S 4G is capable of 4G speeds when a 4G connection is available from T-Mobile's HSPA+...

Review of the Samsung Galaxy S 4G (T-Mobile)

 

The Galaxy S 4G retains everything I loved about the Samsung Vibrant, but with an upgrades to "4G", a front-facing video camera, and a 1650mAh battery. It's certainly not a revolutionary new device, but it's a welcome update.

The Samsung Galaxy S 4G and the HTC MyTouch 4G are the best phones on T-Mobile and, in my opinion, the best "4G" phones on the market. Both offer almost every feature you would expect, in a slim form factor. Neither contain the dual-core processors on...
