Review : 10 Things I Like About Samsung Galaxy S

July 18, 2010 by Galvin Tan in Technology with 11 Comments


After spending 2 weeks with the new Samsung Galaxy S, I’ve compile a list of 10 things I like about the Samsung Galaxy S.

1) Design
The sleek and slim design is really appealing together with the gloss metallic finishing, it makes the phone really classy.

2) Android OS
I’m beginning to see the potential of Android OS. Although the Android Market is still way far behind Apple’s AppStore, I strongly believe it will catch up very very soon.

3) Huge Display
Nobody can deny the clear superiority of 4.0 inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen. The vibrant colour and touchscreen experience is mind-blowing. Display can be clearly seen even under the bright sun.

4) High Definition
Yes, the Samsung Galaxy S records and play 720p HD videos.

5) 5 Megapixel Camera
A 5 Megapixel is good enough for now. Together with auto-focus and lots of modes to play with, taking photo with the Samsung Galaxy S is so much fun.

6) Google-Powered
The Samsung Galaxy S is Super-charged with Google’s power apps. Gmail, Google Map, Google Calendar and other social media apps are automatically linked up.

7) Internal Storage
The fact that the Samsung Galaxy S comes with 8GB/16GB internal storage, it makes life easier.

8) Gaming Experience
Gaming experience on the Samsung Galaxy S is pretty good. I will not compare the games they have on an iPhone but the Samsung Galaxy S can handle some pretty resource intensive games like Quake 2.

9) SWYPE!
Swype is just cool. Swype is awesome! Swype text input makes messaging experience fun on the Samsung Galaxy S.

10) Light Weight
Weighing at 118 grams, the Samsung Galaxy S is definitely the lightest phone I’ve ever own so far. I’m totally impressed with the size of the phone and yet still weigh as light.

However, I do have a couple of things which I do not fancy about the Samsung Galaxy S:

1) Grip
The huge size and the glossy finishing isn’t exactly a good combination, especially for people with sweaty palms. It can get pretty slippery at times especially taking pictures or videos.

2) Battery
Just like the other smartphones I’ve tried, the battery life for Samsung Galaxy S do not impressed me at all. I still need to bring along my charger at all times.

Hey, i just got a new set last week.

I pick it over iPhone 4 due to the fact that it can do more, much more especially for some common task e.g. like video call. The only 'loosing end' i observe is relatively lesser apps and maybe 'not as smooth' when we browse photos.

Keep in touch.
