Samsung Galaxy S

Recently, more and more mobile phone manufacturing companies are selecting Android operating system instead of any other rival OS. The open source nature of Android apps is one basic reason for this selection. Samsung has been doing the same for some time, and now it has come up with one of the best smartphones ever made; the Galaxy S. This 4” big screen has a lot to boast at; let us have a look at its specs and features.

Features:

This phone is all about quality; good quality. The 4” Super AMOLED Touchscreen is a big hit. On the front panel, there is one physical Home key, which is surrounded from left and right by Back and Menu buttons (these two buttons are touch sensitive).

Android is most probably at its best inside Galaxy S. The touch screen is responsive and offers a great experience. The phone has a specific GPU which makes videos and gaming look awesome. The SRS virtual surround sound and nice loudspeakers make audio quality perfect. So is the video quality; it is great indeed. HD video playback takes phone’s level way higher form its competitors.

It has a 5 mp camera wit a secondary VGA camera. Unfortunately, there is no flash (which is a bit depressing). It can record video in high definition i.e. 720p@30fps. The eBook reader Aldiko and Swype come in the phone by default. Other than these, there are thousands of apps available in the Android market for download.
