Samsung Galaxy S I9000: Flagship Android

[NEW GADGET] More contenders for the crown of the best Android phone in Singapore! Samsung, not a big fan of Android, with just the Samsung Galaxy Spica to show for. The new Galaxy promises to take compete with HTC Desire in terms of hardware specifications.

  • 4” Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors
  • 122.4 x 64.2 x 9.9 mm / 118g
  • 8 GB/16GB storage, 512 MB RAM
  • HSDPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
  • ARM Cortex A8 1GHz processor
  • Android OS, v2.1 (Eclair)

Samsung always produce the some of the best screens for mobile phones and this Super AMOLED is again without question going to beat many competitors hands-down. To sweeten things, Galaxy S I9000 is capable of 720p video playback on a 4” screen. The thought of that is amazing already, I think it could be potentially much better in reality. I will just stop short of saying you should buy the phone solely for the screen alone.

On other front, Samsung has again overlay the stock Android interface with their TouchWiz. If you are new to Android, it will definitely be interesting to compare TouchWiz and HTC Sense, the other interface that overlays the stock version. You may find HTC Sense a more compelling version.  

And once again, GSMArena is out with a review of the Samsung phone and they pointed out several areas such as the lack of flash and dedicated button for camera. Pretty minor points.

Samsung Galaxy S I9000 is now going at S$668 for a basic mobile plan without data package. Very big price tag and could the reason to dwarf many potential buyers. But HTC Desire is not way off at S$548.

And I found a official demo of the phone from Samsung USA. Pretty good summary of the features.
