"Very Very solid phone with great multimedia features"4.0 starson by iceman721
Pros: Screen size, resolution & brightness. Large battery. 4G screaming fast. Great multimedia including live television & ability to download/rent movies & T.V.
Cons: POOR INTERNAL MEMORY (All apps can't be moved over to an SD card and after the operating system only approx 512MB are available for apps! Cmon Samsung!!) No flash on the camera on a phone of this caliber is a HUGE disappointment
Summary: This is my 3rd Android phone. I had the G1 on Day 1 and upgraded to a Nexus S a month after it came out. I have been on Android from the start watching it develop into a real world contender for Apple. The thing I acknowledged was always lacking was the multimedia capability of the phones on Android. Now with the beautiful SuperAMOLED screen, 4 inches of screen size, doubletwist with AirSync & the Samsung Media Hub & T Mobile TV over 4g this phone is finally competitive with the fruit phone. I have clocked up to 5mb download and 1.8 upload so far with this phone. I'm seeing 3mb download and 8-900kb uploads consistently. This phone actually holds a signal also unlike my Nexus which dropped calls repeatedly (thanks to HTC for putting the antenna in the bottom of the phone....idiots).
My biggest gripe with this phone (and the new Nexus S as well) is that they don't have large enough internal memory. When you won't allow me to put all of the apps on the SD card then how about installing a reasonable amount of internal storage!! 4GB would have been nice with 3.5GB available for app storage or at least 2GB with 1.5 for apps. Applications increase the functionality of the device. You want more people to buy apps on the market place then HELLO!!! Put more storage space in the phone until all the apps can be off loaded onto a SD card. That rant alone cost this phone 3/4 of a star in the ratings area for me. The other poor element is the lack of a flash on the camera. That is unacceptable.
I have loaded several 1080p videos from my computer to the device and the picture quality is impressive. Sound Quality for music, video and phone calls is very good over the speaker as well as through the earbuds included. I'm a bit surprised but charging this phone through the included USB to micro USB cable takes FOREVER. The battery life is pretty good though. The screen is sensitive & accurate to touch. The inclusion of Swype and doubletwist with air sync are thoughtful inclusions. After upgrading from a Nexus 1 I think I may actually keep this even though I'm still upset about the lack of internal storage space in the phone. Overall a really good device that could use just a couple of minor tweaks to make it world class.
