Samsung Galaxy 3 I5800 Preview
All previous models of Samsung for the European and Asian markets lack whatever camera interface personalization. The situation is, however, different in the case of the I5800 – you can take your pick from several effects, scenes and other settings, which is a definite plus. The pictures below give you a general idea of the image quality that the 3-megapixel camera delivers, although we would rather advise you not to draw final conclusions based on them.
Samsung´s magic penetrates the audio and video players and their interface is in the manufacturer´s typical styling. Similarly to the Galaxy Spica I5700, the I5800 supports DivX and Xvid files. Despite the fact that our unit is an early prototype, the handset plays videos with resolution of 720x480 pixels and high bitrate without a hitch.
With the Samsung Galaxy 3 I5800, the manufacturer demonstrates its own vision as to how Android should be personalized, relying on TouchWiz 3.0 to do the trick. Moreover, the I5800 features SNS support, so it can compete with the LG GW620 and Motorola QUENCH for the hearts of eager social networking fans. Unlike the latter, however, the I5800 is more elegant and this makes it stand out from the crowd, because truly stylish Android-handsets are still rare on the market. Will it be successful? Well, the answer heavily depends on two major factors – the seamless integration of the personalization pack and its ability to properly utilize the hardware and, of course, the particular price the device will roll out at.
