Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Icon launched last year, the Galaxy S now has a customised version of Android that makes it a joy to use. Sure, the handset may look and feel like an Apple iPhone because of its physical specifications and interface, but the company has been able to add a couple of features that make it one of the best Android phones in the market.
The Galaxy S is mostly made out of plastic, which may disappoint some considering Samsung considers it as its flagship smartphone. However, its slim profile (9.9mm), light weight (124g), and large 4-inch AMOLED screen definitely makes up for what it lacks in build.
In terms of hardware, the Galaxy S has a 1Ghz processor, 512MB of RAM, and 16GB of internal memory. A microSD slot is available, allowing users to expand the memory up to 48GB (using a 32GB card). In terms of connectivity, the Galaxy S offers Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Allshare via DLNA, and HSDPA/HSUPA.
The 4-inch AMOLED display is bright, crisp, and responsive. This made it easy for us to scroll between the home screens (up to seven), view the installed applications, and perform multi-touch functions.« Back Read More »
