Last night at the Digital Experience event in New York City, we got the chance to get some hands-on time with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S. If you're unfamiliar with the Galaxy S, it is an Android-based smartphone, that features a 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor, a 4" multi-touch Super AMOLED screen, and a 5MP camera with 720P HD recording capabilities.

As the video will show, the Samsung Galaxy S seems to offer strong performance, with fluid animations and quick reactions to rotation and touch gestures. What the video doesn't convey is the "feel" of the device. The Galaxy S is relatively tall, thanks to its large screen, but it is nice and thin, and easy to hold. The phone feels very solid and sturdy.
The Samsung Galaxy S
Splugh! Touchwiz! Sorta made me throw up in my mouth.
Yeah...OK...It a lookalike a Iphone!
To bad its a Samsung!
I have always liked Samsung's phones until they started putting that TouchWiz stuff on heavily locked down Windows Mobile & Android phones. I really wat to check out the Bada OS and see what it can do. But I really have to admit hd video playback in all those formats makes my mouth water. And in that video the AMOLED display looks sharp.
I'm liking this phone. I rather have stock but this Touchwiz 3 is not bad at all. Also love the custom things like playing divx and mkv natively. Samsung Apps are good as well, Asphalt came for free.
