Find something else, you'll be glad you did
Needed a cheap smartphone to hold me over while my regular one was being repaired. Phone is painfully slow, battery drains at an alarming pace. Good riddance

This gadget is amazing, I have no problem in unlocking it, and use it with local GSM provider. The screen is fabulous, the body is so thin & light, WiFi,GPS, Android Market Apps,Maps, weather status,Camera, Video,Music all are awesome.<br>You will surprised with the Swype application, easy to write words just count in seconds to sent SMS or email. I like this gadget, Battery NO problem, just set the "POWER" on your homepage, it will last for 3 days in standby position.<br>In one word I would say "aaabraacaadaabraaaa".

Samsung vibrant excellent mobile
Samsung Vibrant Overview<br><br>We've been spending some quality time with Samsung's Galaxy S phone lineup for the past few weeks, and our most recent candidate has been the Samsung Vibrant for T-Mobile. Just like the Samsung Captivate for AT&T we reviewed last week, the Vibrant is stacked with a Super AMOLED screen, 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 5-megapixel camera with 720p video, and Android 2.1. In fact, the Samsung Vibrant is nearly identical to the Captivate, save a few minor architectural differences and preloaded content. Let's just say James Cameron must be grinning and frolicking about like a little schoolgirl who just won the spelling bee, for T-Mobile hawks Avatar on the Samsung Vibrant like no tomorrow.<br><br>Samsung Vibrant Design<br><br>All Samsung Galaxy S phones share similar architecture, aside from Sprint's Epic 4G, which features a full QWERTY slide-out keyboard. So the Samsung Vibrant is strikingly similar to the Samsung Captivate and Samsung Fascinate. Compared to the Captivate, the Vibrant resides on the cheap side, utilizing a singular thin plastic panel to shroud the battery, 32GB capacity MicroSD card slot, and SIM card bay. On the AT&T Captivate, we get a nice metal faux carbon fiber back panel that is easy to slide out. The Samsung Vibrant's frail back panel snaps on rather awkwardly to the extent that we feared breaking the inner tabs right off.<br><br>On the bright side, the Samsung Vibrant is a sleek, light device with a contoured body that seemed to fit in our pocket a tad more ergonomically sound than the Captivate. We have the same sliding USB port enclosure found on high-end camcorders and 3.5mm Audio jack located on top, volume control on the left side, and Lock button on the right side. Simplicity is the name of the game here.<br><br>The Samsung Vibrant's AMOLED screen is one of its main attractions. Aside from a panel of four touch-sensitive buttons (Menu, Home, Back, and Search), the Samsung Vibrant relies solely on its screen to run the show. Haptic feedback is optional, and the screen itself is a benchmark in the mobile industry. The Samsung Vibrant's four-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen has a WVGA resolution (800 x 480), but it's the phone's high contrast that sets it apart. The Vibrant's screen has an impressive 50,000:1 contrast ratio, which optimizes the dynamic range and proves ideal for watching movies and playing games. In fact, we compared the Vibrant's AMOLED to the iPhone 4's Retina display and made a few discoveries.<br><br>The iPhone 4 is better for basic navigation like reading and browsing while the Captivate is better for multimedia content like movies and games. It's worth noting that the iPhone 4's screen offers 326 pixels per inch (3.5-inch screen with 960 x 460-pixel resolution) while the Samsung Vibrant's screen has 260 pixels per inch (4-inch screen with 800 x 480-pixel resolution). We could see individual pixels and stepping lines if we looked very closely on the Vibrant's screen, but we couldn't see any pixels on the iPhone 4's screen. The Samsung Vibrant's Super AMOLED screen is still one of the tastiest in the mobile phone world, but the iPhone 4 still wins in the overall display department.Read full review
