Samsung tells all about the Galaxy S on YouTube
Don't know a Galaxy S from your elbow? Think that a Super AMOLED screen is a disguise worn by a crime fighting hero? If you know nothing about the Android handset that each of the top 4 U.S. carriers will be offering, check out the video below. Produced by Samsung, the YouTube vid shows off each of the four Galaxy S variants for AT&T (Captivate), T-Mobile (Vibrant), Verizon (Fascinate) and Sprint (Epic 4G). Sprint's device is actually a version of the Galaxy S Pro which includes a landscape sliding QWERTY keyboard.

Samsung shows off the Super AMOLED screen on the phone, and why shouldn't they? Not only do the colors pop with this technology, and the 4 inch screen is usable in direct sunlight, but Samsung seems to be able to produce just enough of the display for its own use. Other features that are shown include the Swype keyboard, the 1GHz Hummingbird processor and the ability for the handset to support social networks.  Now you can talk the language of the Samsung Galaxy S. Who knows, you might end up tempted to put one in the palm of your hand.

Yes he is and yes it does. SAMOLED trumps the Retina display on the ip4. Saw a T Mobile Vibrant yesterday in person and WOW what a difference. I was sold on the Droid X but now really contemplating waiting on the Fascinate. Although I wish it had an 8mp camera, the LED flash on the VZW version should improve picture quality. We'll see soon.

MPX doesnt really make that much of a difference as much as software and lens quality, whateverman. I can tell you from first hand experience that while i do miss the flash on certain close lowlight pix (like bar pix of friends for example), it has a lowlight mode that more than beats flash in many situations. It also takes very clear pix, so no worries.

Retina display. Seen it. Sure it has a greater resolution no doubt, but it has no pales in comparison to super amoled. I have friends with iphone 4s. Super amoled makes the retina display look like and aren't you the same norton that tries to convince people that vzw is a mexican

Get your free bumper in the mail yet so your calls wont drop on your "popular" phone?

Lol- Tony, you're such a douche bag! Your Apple iFail is a smart phone for dumb people. Little customization, and a giant bug known as call dropping, that requires a bumper? You moron, take your iFail and shove it up your ass hole.

SAMSUNG CAPTIVATE - awesome phone - but the i9000 ROM is better with more extras....faster UI, great voice command central app, app for having VM and emails read back to you. 4 bars shown instead of Q score on the i9000 was higher than the AT&T ROM. Either way, the video and pic quality is outstanding on the phone...

heya.. networkdood. ur gonna have some phone troubles. I been checkin XDA about the i9000 (euro galaxyS rom) that came out. Its been proven to be a bricker if you try to move to any other roms. Cyganomod has a warning up about it, and its all over XDA now not to flash to it, because while it seems to work well, if u try to ever update/replace the rom, its got a very very high chance of bricking your phone. Be careful. dont want anyone to end up with a $500 warranty free brick.
