Disadvantages: Not enough apps available for the android
As a previous life long Nokia customer I was reluctant to switch to another manufacturer of mobiles when my contract came up for renewal in March of last year. However as I wanted to join the i-phone/android generation and Nokia at the time were miles behind in this field I had no choice but to look elsewhere for a new phone. Fortunately both of my stepchildren are up with modern technology so I had the opportunity to look at both the Apple I phone and the Samsung Galaxy S. In my opinion there appeared to be very little difference between the two phones apart from the contract price with the Galaxy S being £5 per month cheaper.
I finally decided to purchase the Galaxy S (as cost was a consideration for me). I have been using this phone for over 10 months and I am extremely happy with the reliability, style and ease of use. The screen is clear and detailed, colours are bright and text easy to read. The phone is easy to customise for your own personal use. The camera takes excellent pictures (much better than my own digital camera), texting is simple with voice recognition facility if you prefer. My own slight criticism with texting is the keys are quite small. There is a wide range of apps available on the market including many free ones (although the I-phone still seems to be leading the way with regards to apps), all of which I have found to be easy to download and use. The navigation facility is excellent apart from the American words and pronunciation which takes some getting used to. With regards to battery life I have had no issues but battery life can be prolonged by turning off background data and autosync facilities, turning down the brightness and changing the screensaver.
Overall I am extremely happy with the phone and I would not hesitate to consider a Samsung phone again.
Summary: Good reliable, easy to use & easy to personalise phone. Would definitely buy another Samsung phone
