Good: AMOLED Screen,
Bad: Firmware (GPS, WiFi, Cell), FM Radio is Mono,
Comment: Its a shame the reviewer didn't spend much time actually using the phone or they would have picked up on the faults that the users forums are buzzing with. Namely the useless GPS. The unreliable WiFi and HSDPA/3G. The occasional lock-ups. Is this the reason the radio is mono too?
Of course we hope they'll be fixed by a firmware upgrade, but with Samsung blatantly refusing to acknowledge the problem, and 'news sites' not yet up to speed, there is little we can do to get them to fix it.
Good: Excellent android phone
Bad: Some applications do not appear in task killer
Comment: In addition to previous review I want to point out that there is application switcher by pressing home for about 2 seconds
Good: Screen, A ndroid and android application store
Bad: The atatus bar in some application.
Comment: This phone is realy good. I have moved onto this from HTC HD2. The muic player in this is better and stable. The signal strength is supposed to be better but I have not noticed any significant diffenrence.
I think there will be great improvement after Android 2.2 as the RAM currently is limited to half of full potential. Also the flash support is patchy.
The only reservation is that there should be an easy way to flick between running applications as I had on HD2. Also the status bar in portrait mode is unneassary and waste of screen potential.
There may well be solutions to these but I am new user and not aware. These should anyway be very simple to sort out than whatt they are.
Good: Android OS
Bad: Very poor battery life
Comment: When using 3GS services or online surfing, the battery gone too fast, only last for 2-3 hrs.
Good: superb hardware. specially the super AMEOLD screen. warm and vivid
Comment: At first not very happy with the design.
But, mellowed by the screen which warm and vivid which made me feel warm spring day.
