*This is the version of the Samsung Galaxy S I9000 with 8GB Internal Memory. Clove is offering an 8GB MicroSD card as a bundle in order to increase the overall memory of the device to 16GB*

Overview of Samsung Galaxy S I9000 (16GB)

The I9000 Galaxy S is Samsung’s flagship Android device. The Galaxy S not only runs the latest version of Android (2.1), but packs a feature set sure to rival that of any other Smartphone.

So what sets this handset apart from other Android devices on the market? First of all there’s the 4” SUPER-AMOLED, touch-screen display. This new Super AMOLED technology developed by Samsung not only produces an amazing picture, it also saves on battery life, making the I9000 Galaxy S ideal for media playback and in-car satellite navigation.

As well as the cutting edge display, the Galaxy S comes with 8GB internal memory, the largest internal memory storage available on an Android device to date. With MicroSD storage, an additional 32GB can also be added to the memory. In terms of media storage and playback, this takes the I9000 above and beyond top of the range portable devices such as the iPod Touch.

Power and speed are also important features of the I9000 Galaxy S. The 1GHz processor ensures that device navigation is as smooth as possible, while the 3.5G connectivity provides the fastest possible mobile-internet browsing. With download speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 5.76 Mbps, you’ll be able to make use of the device’s Facebook capabilities when out and about.

The Samsung I9000 also comes with an impressive Camera. Besides that of the Sony XPERIA X10, which packs an astonishing 8MP Camera, this is the highest spec camera seen in an Android device to date. The Galaxy S has a 5MP camera with auto-focus, capable of recording 720p video footage at 30 frames per second.

The other features of the I9000 Galaxy S at a glance are a 3.5mm headphone connection, Bluetooth 3.0, quad-band connectivity, Swype text input, Wi-Fi, FM Radio and compatibility with the vast majority of media types.

The large internal storage, combined with the Super AMOLED touch screen display, social-networking capability and access to the Android market place makes the Samsung I9000 Galaxy S a more than worthy competitor to other high-end devices such as the iPhone 3GS and HTC Desire.

  • Vikash 9/10/2010 Recommend to a friend? Yes
    Great phone.I have been using it for one week.I was using the Samsung Omnia 2 before.The difference is immense.

    Software the are lots of better programs in Android and lots of them for free.But still lots of application need to be available for the Android Market.I am sure it will come in due time.The best part is that you can customize your own phone.

    The touch screen is way better much more responsive.The screen is amazing.I still think a 3.7 inch screen is the standard for phones.Its a phone not a tv.But Super AMOLED is very good.Its a very light weight phone and very thin.

    The Negative part now.

    Samsung does not provide a pouch with it compared with the Samsung Omnia 2

    Samsung did not put a LED Flash support for the Camera on a such high end device.

    The battery is a problem if you use WIFI it will last only a day max.But without the constant use if Wifi can go longer two days or even more.

    Plastic matter is not as great as the Samsung Omnia 2.So will need a carrying pouch or a silicon case.

    There are no other flaws till now.

    Android 2.1 is miles ahead of Windows Mobile 6.5.

    So overall i will recommend this phone.For the price it is its really an Iphone Killer.What would have made it certainly kill Iphone is an LED Flash.

    I rate it at 85/100
    i can't give 4 1/2 stars.
