Samsung Galaxy S 4G Review
Overall callers were impressed with the Samsung Galaxy S 4G. They said we sounded a bit distant and real nasally (in fairness we are a bit congested) but not hollow and they had no issues hearing us clearly. They rated us an 8.25/10, and we would probably rate them about half a point higher than that. Their voice sounded natural and clear, and though we could hear background noise from the store they were at it did not take away from the conversation. The battery has been beefed up to 1650mAh (from 1500) but the rating remains the same at 6.5 hours of talk time.

We were fairly impressed with the Samsung Vibrant the first time around, and the Galaxy S 4G is pretty much the same phone with faster data speed and video calling abilities. Even in today’s market the Galaxy S 4G slots in the upper echelon of handsets, even as the Galaxy S II is set to launch soon. The market is moving at a breakneck pace these days, and high-end handsets almost seem cookie cutter. Still, the Galaxy S 4G makes its mark with a wafer thin design, beautiful display and by being the fastest phone for data (at least in theory) in the nation.

This phone seems to be a very good phone. I don't have it, but I have friends who own the phone and I have toyed around with it, and I must say it's a nice step up from the Vibrant. The only issues I can see with the phone are the bloatware and the fact that the phone has no flash, of course with the Galaxy S II coming out there are going to be some major step-ups from insignificant issues such as these. Samsung may not be HTC what with the user interface and the features and whatnot, but Samsung makes damned good phones and I'll be darned if anyone tries to bad talk their technology.
