Comment: This phone is great, so what if it is a iphone wannabe, iphones are great and this phone does a good job of bringing friendly competition to the iphone, the phone does everything i would like a phone to do which includes call, text, play high quality games and take pictures. oh, and the HD video recording is a bonus for me.
The only downside is that it freezes sometimes and the battery life is AWFUL.
Good: You can make calls and texts
Bad: Everything else apart from making calls and texts!
Comment: iPhone wannabe!
Good: . You get a standard
Comment: Do you need the galaxy s wi fi 5.0 as an additional remote, to enhance your experience with the samsung PS64D8000 Plasma TV. You get a standard remote with the TV, I am told that this is a worthwhile addition for the smart area of the TV. Any advice, I would be grateful.
Good: Basically its fantastic, I drive alot and rely on voice activation through bluetooth. It work superbly with the Galaxy S. The Camera and Video quality are superb. Over all its a fast, fantastic bit of kit... I wont be returning to Blackberry

Bad: battery and plastic build
Comment: best phone i ever had. and fastest even though i have owned htc leo but this phone is alot faster and better looking
Good: Super AMOLED Screen, Flash Support unlike the iPhone, Fast 1 Ghz processor, Free Apps, IPhone Killer, Great Build Quality
Bad: Battery Life, Rubbish Widgets, Finger Prints
Comment: I just switched from a blackberry bold on orange to the samsung galaxy on the 3 network 2 weeks ago. After using this phone I will never go back to using a blackberry android is more advanced, has more apps available and has more potential. The only problem that might put you off is that the phone's battery life which is due to the great features like the super AMOLED screen. I have to charge my phone every day which is a pain but is worth it for this amazing phone. Two minor problems are that the phone case and screen attracts fingerprints which can be sorted easily. The other minor problem is the widgets preloaded are rubbish don't bother with them just go on to the android app store and download some decent widgets.
