Samsung Galaxy S
Advantages: Simple, Sophisticated, Useful and Fun
Disadvantages: Small battery life ( about a day)
After now owning a Samsung Galaxy S for over 6 months, I can honestly say I have not enjoyed using a phone more. I am not an avid user of technology and often find technology tedious and trialsome with long set ups and confusing language that leaves me wanting to throw the device out of the window!
However, this Android powered Smart phone is an exception. The set up was quick and basic, the most confusing thing was setting up the Gmail account in order to access the android market! Once I was able to browse the treasure trove of apps available, it was as simple as clicking on the free apps, accepting and having them there to use on the phone in moments.
The camera takes very good photos which can work well with any photo editing apps that you can download, the only downside is that the camera does not have a flash function which can prove to be a little annnoying in the twighlight hours.
As for the general usuage of the phone, I have found the text message center is fantastic and alot easier to use than my previous mobile phones. The key pad can be used vertically or horizontally and there are additional swype options available for those who can use it with a steady hand! The only gripe I have with the texting function is that the spacebar is quite small and as a big thumbed person, I find my texts are full of accidental full stops as that is the button next to the space bar!
The call center is also very simple with options of video calling, putting calls on hold and recieving a mulitple call. I find this very useful when arranging social meet ups with friends and family all ringing me at once.
The phone its self is light, thin and robust. It is very hard to break one of these by droppping it as I have discovered many a time whilst at work and home. The screen is very sensative to moisture and can freeze but with a good wipe it resumes normal functioning immeadiatly.
Overall this phone is exceptionally convieniant with its google maps and search engines inbuilt as well as its large storage capacity and fun lively features. I have reccomended this phone to all those who have been updating their phones recently and I have found they are all also exceedingly happy with the Samsung Galaxy range all in all.
Summary: A brilliant choice of smartphone for those who arnt techno heads ( an for those who are)
