Good phone, great potential.
I just moved over from a BlackBerry Bold 9700 to this Samsung Galaxy S phone. I couldn´t help but compare what my exprience was with my BB vs my new experience with this phone. I can tell you the phone is eye candy you will enjoy in its super AMOLED screen. I´m loving the visual effects, the live wallpapers and the transition effects. I´m also loving the thousands apps found in the Android Market -this is a DEFINATE advantage over BB -I felt like I was a little kid at ToyRus. I was surprised to find that most apps are more affordable than the BB apps -also a plus! Another plus is that most, if not all apps, work over wifi and do not require a data plan (huge advantage over BB). It´s also good that there are tons of forums out there dedicated to help you out with problems and issues with Android phones -you WILL need it. HOWEVER, there is one down side to Android phones in general -the OS is still being developed hence can feel unstable, has crashed on me a few times (once a week) and can be a bit intimidating if you haven´t used linux before (not my case). I still dont understand why you need a data plan to be able to use the voice command -huge dissapointment since I use this feature daily. Since this is my 1st touch phone I´m still getting used to not having key shortcuts. I miss being able to press "2" to call my wife or being able to press "B" and launch BeeJive app. Overall I believe that Android OS has A LOT of potential. It´s beautifly designed, has tons of apps and it´s easy to get help to do anything. However be patient and read a lot so you can turn this "Blank canvas" into your own work of art. Read full review

Brilliant Display, Design, and Device! A Winning Buy!
The Samsung SGH-T959, one of 4 "Galaxy S" phones released by Samsung in late 2010, is an amazing device that nearly perfects what a user can expect from a high-end Android Smartphone. Ir's AMOLED display is amazing. It's bright in all light, has crisp and clear color, and is rugged and resistant to scratching. I've never seen a display look so good on a mobile platform unless it was a laptop with a WSXGA+ screen - something you'd pay over $1000 for. The controls, feel, and design are practical and comfortable. One-handed use in portrait or landscape is doable, but a slight stretch for the average sized hand. This is a slight drawback on occasion, but all considered the grip is worth it for such an expansive screen to work with. The touch sensitivity and accuracy is excellent. Even users new to a touch-based device have found it easy to work with. Both my parents, over 55 years old, were sinking baskets in Paper Toss or beating me at Air Hockey in no time - it's really that simple. The phone is fast, and apps don't hang or clip. Force Closes on Android 2.1 (an application crash, for those Droid non-speakers) are minimal and qiuck to resolve. For contrast, I previously owned the MyTouch 3G device - much slower, not nearly as trim in memory use, and running Android 1.6 with noticeable age. I've used the higher-end selection of phones from Blackberry, Motorola, Nokia, and others - nearly every single smartphone platform from Windows Mobile 5 to Symbian has crossed my hand - and I've never been more satisfied with a phone than the Samsung Vibrant for T-mobile. The downsides, and there are a scant few, are not dealbreakers, but detract from being able to call this phone "perfect". - There's no self-facing camera. As video conferencing and calls emerge as a more common platform, the Vibrant will lag behind newer and current devices that included this technology. - The phone ships with Android 2.1, not 2.2 like the Nexus One or Droid 2, and the benefits of the more updated OS are significant if you're a Google enthusiast. - Battery life is not stellar, and you'll find yourself charging the phone a lot. With a huge screen, a 1Ghz Snapdragon processor, and so much more packed into a phone with a 1500Mah battery, this can be expected. But because the phone is just so darn fun and useful, you use it a lot. And unfortunately, that means it's going to drain your battery in short order. If you just have to have the latest OS, a self-facing camera, or a phone that lasts for 3 days on one battery, you won't find it on or inside the Vibrant. But if you don't, and you're looking for a smart phone that piles it on without demanding an entire paycheck for it, you simply cannot go wrong with the Galaxy S Vibrant from T-mobile and Samsung. Update: Samsung & T-mobile now provide an official 2.2 "Froyo" release. See T-mobile support or the Samsung Galaxy S web site to download software. This update was....about 6 months late, and never went out over the air (OTA) but must be done using your PC and a USB connection. Additionally, I found that after I rooted my Vibrant and applied a quality non-stock ROM, the phone zipped along noticeably faster and battery life also improved. I continue to see local traders and online buyers sell G2's and MyTouch 4G devices to get the T959 or it's 4G successor, the T959V. That's a testament to it's solid quality. Read full review

Pros: + Cheaper and faster + Smooth and beautiful Video + Camera + Wireless tethering + Unlimited expandability Cons: - Lack of internal memory - Bloated apps - No flash LED Summary: I was an iPhone user who decided to buy new SGS4G for some "freedom" and cheaper cell/data service. And another reason I bought this device is because it is very close to iphone. Here comes my review after a week of its ownership. Pros 1. Cheaper and faster: Speed difference from iPhone is obvious with 4G and better processor. T-mobile provides with cheaper plans. 2. Smooth and beautiful Video: I rarely watch TV/movies on a smartphone. This device made me think again. Quality of the movie screen is amazing - smooth and clear. Watching experience is close to laptop. I will enjoy this on flight. 3. Camera: Without considering more resolution, this camera is better than the one in iPhone GS. It is much less sensible for small shaking. 4. Wireless tethering: I didn't really care for tethering with 3G because of its terrible speed. But this device's 4G now and supposed to be 21 Mbps. After rooting, I first installed wireless tethering. And it works like a charm. This portable wifi router does not really make 21 Mbps but 8 Mbps but it's still practica Read full review

vibrant worthy of being T Mobiles flagship phone
The Samsung Vibrant is one of my favorite android phones across all the networks. And that's saying something right? The size is perfect. 4.3 in screens are a bit too big, so I really appreciate the 4.0 on the vibrant. the vibrants display is phenomenal. Its one of my favorite attributes. Its a pleasure to watch movies on and view photos. The battery life is Pretty decent, and if you can leave it on wifi it'll last even longer. 16gb of internal storage is fantastic, and you even get access to it unlike some Android phones. Kudos for that! I appreciate the design of the battery cover and access. The sim card and micro sd card can both be removed without having to remove the battery. The charging port and headphone jack are on the top of the phone and the power button is on the upper right side. If you don't use a case it can be kindof slippery when you turn the phone on and off. I would prefer having the power button at the top of the phone. If you haven't used an android phone before you will probably like the touch wiz interface. If you have used a stock android phone you may not like touch wiz as much. Read full review

Samsung Vibrant - Overall pretty decent
Pros - Excellent Screen Good Quality Beautiful Interface Decent App Market Widgets can make phone unique, unlike the Iphone Cons - Below Average battery life (1500mAh battery) Many apps run in background after use Processing power (1Ghz) not enough to run many apps App market still developing, some apps cause OS to freeze Battery life stays about 10-12 hours if UNTOUCHED, much less if used Vibrant's quality is not up to par with AT&T's Captivate Overall, I remind myself everyday to find a spot to charge my phone, either in the car or at home or over at a friend's. Battery life is the only concern about the phone. I absolutely would pick this phone over an Iphone because of it's good qualities.
