Samsung Galaxy S

 

It's Samsung's best smartphone to date, but is it the best in the market?

Vibrant AMOLED display ; Fast processor ; Customised interface works well

Less than perfect built quality ; Mediocre battery life

The Galaxy S should have been a cracking handset and in many ways it is. Its screen is very good, it's fast, it's packed with features, and looks pretty decent as well. Certainly if you're looking for a large and powerful Android smartphone, it's up...

Samsung Galaxy S WiFi review: Hands-on

 

Having unveiled the Galaxy Note 10.1 and Galaxy Beam projector phone, Samsung has rounded off its MWC 2012 offering with the Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.2

Samsung Galaxy S review

 

Samsung strikes mobile gold with a phone that combines both hugely powerful hardware with a UI that makes Android 2.1 easy but also incredibly intuitive to use

The Galaxy S takes the familiar iPhone format and tries to improve it with some eye-catching screen tech. But has it worked?

It's not the most original design, but all sins are forgiven the moment you fire up that glorious screen

Samsung Galaxy S review

 

Looks like an iPhone. But now tastes like Gingerbread

Superb screen ; Cheaper price ; Slim chassis ; Great audio quality ; HD video recording

No unified inbox ; No more updates ; Wi-Fi not too strong ; No camera flash

This Samsung Galaxy S review has been updated to include the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system update.

Samsung Galaxy S Review: In Depth

 

The Galaxy S appears to be Samsung's answer to the likes of the iPhone and the Google Nexus One. It has definitely taken more than a few design queues from Apple's ubiquitous smartphone, but running Android…

Samsung Galaxy S 4G review

 

The Google Android 2.2-powered Samsung Galaxy S 4G is, in essence, a Samsung Galaxy S with added extras. It will be sold in the US by T-Mobile starting February 23, and will be priced at about $150 with a two-year contract. UK availability is not yet...

In a nutshell, I'm impressed with the Galaxy S 4G. It doesn't have the features or horsepower of its brother the Galaxy S II (launched here yesterday), but to get to a bargain price point you can't have the best of everything.

Samsung Galaxy S review

 

This sleek candybar Google Android handset is almost identical in size to the iPhone 3GS and mimics its chrome-trimmed black exterior. But the Samsung Galaxy S is lighter, at 119g, and has a brighter 4in AmoLED touchscreen. Vain gadget fans will also...

The fantastic Samsung Galaxy S offers a range of features and an incredible screen, and is a legitimate rival to Apple's iPhone. The battery may not last as long as you'd expect, however.

Samsung Galaxy S Media Player : Samsung Galaxy S WiFi

 

Do you remember your first one? I am, of course, referring to your first portable media device such as an MP3 player.

I have just had a flashback – fortunately it was not painful but it did remind me of my first MP3 player. This was a device, whose antecedents I have forgotten, that I won as a prize in a charity raffle. Actually it was not the prize attached in my...

Samsung Galaxy S

 

So with the Galaxy S only just going on sale I have been very lucky to be able to get hold of a device to review for the site and test it out in real world use. This has been my only phone to use so had to put up with all my daily use of a phone....

There the phone let me down was the lack of LED/Xenon flash for taking photos. This was actually the biggest let down for me and I was very surprised when Samsung decided not to include a flash even just a basic LED one. On a £450.00 phone a Flash...
