Samsung Galaxy S gets video unboxing

Jun 17, 2010

Back when we reviewed the Samsung Wave, while we loved its Super AMOLED display and swift 1GHz Hummingbird processor, we also felt the Samsung Galaxy S with Android 2.1 would be a better bet for most consumers than the new bada OS.  Happily that's something we can test out now, since there's a Samsung Galaxy S fresh to the test bench at Android Community today.

Packing a 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display, TouchWiz 3.0 UI, WiFi b/g/n, triband UMTS and Bluetooth 3.0, the Galaxy S certainly ticks the specs boxes.  Hands-on, the display leaves no room for disappointment, even managing to put HTC's AMOLED technology - as on the Nexus One and Desire - to shame with its right, bright colors and crisp resolution.

It's also impressively swift, with menus whipping past and webpages rendering almost instantaneously.  Pinch-zooming shows none of the lag we've seen on other recent, less powerful Android handsets, and screen rotation happens without a pause.

We've shared more first-impressions over at Android Community, so head there for full details.  We'll have the full review of the Galaxy S very soon.
