Expert Review

Phone Arena
2 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Last summer was a watershed moment for Android. The HTC EVO 4G , Motorola DROID X and Samsung Galaxy S lineup dominated the cellular landscape and rightfully so. The Samsung Vibrant was the Galaxy S variant for T-Mobile and was the first Galaxy S phone out of the gate in the US. It was quickly followed by the Captivate , Epic 4G , Fascinate and others.
  • Pros: Wonderful Super AMOLED display gives great multimedia experience, Great battery life, 21+ Mbps 4G speeds is the best on the market, Comfortable, thin design
  • Cons: The materials could be better, Lots of bloatware

Samsung Galaxy S 4G

MobileTechReview.com
23 February 2011
  • Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy S 4G is an evolutionary upgrade to the Vibrant. Think of it as the Vibrant with 2011 tweaks: 4G, a front video chat camera and Froyo with Flash 10.1. If you already own a Samsung Vibrant, you likely won’t want to shell out the out of cycle upgrade price for the Galaxy S 4G, but if you’re coming from a lower end Android phone like the myTouch 3G or a feature phone, the Galaxy S 4G has major appeal.
  • Pros: Excellent display, solid camera with good video recording, 4G HSPA speeds are great.
  • Cons: Attractive but plasticky, 1GHz Hummingbird no longer the cream of the CPU crop.

Samsung Galaxy S 4G (T-Mobile) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
22 February 2011
  • Summary: The Galaxy S 4G delivers the fastest speeds yet for T-Mobile customers and adds some welcome enhancements, including a front-facing camera and longer-lasting battery. While we wish Samsung had also included a faster processor for $199, this is now the top smart phone available for the carrier. Both the $99 myTouch 4G and T-Mobile G2 are great bargains, but the Galaxy S 4G has a superior Super AMOLED display and does a better job of living up to the 4G part of its name.

Review: Samsung Epic 4G

Wired
10 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Got big pockets? And we mean that in both the physical size and money-carrying capacity sense of the word.
  • Pros: Glorious display — extremely bright and crisp. Feature-laden; literally lacking nothing that a state-of-the-art handset ought to have.
  • Cons: Battery life is substandard. Keyboard is too flat for easy typing.

Review: Samsung Vibrant

Wired
10 January 2011
  • Excerpt: T-Mobile might have fired the first shot in the battle for Android supremacy, but things have been a little quiet since 2008. But now that Droid army has made a splash, Samsung is coming out swinging by bringing its Google-powered touchscreen darling — aptly named the Vibrant — to T-Mobile.
  • Pros: Vibrant (ha!) 800×480 AMOLED screen is great for movies and video content. Shoots crisp 720p video at a buttery 30fps. Comes baked with multiple input options: Android keyboard, Samsung keyboard, and Swype. Sports TV-out and 5.1 audio. Solid call quality. Ships with a full copy of
  • Cons: Piss-poor battery hinders its potential. Chassis feels cheap and plasticy. Tinny speakerphone is a blight on both calls and movies. Forget about indoor photos. Ships with a full copy of…Avatar.
