Samsung Galaxy S Offers Sharp Screen, Half-Baked Features

by Nicholas Kolakowski
The Samsung Galaxy S smartphone emphasizes multimedia capabilities, with a Super AMOLED screen and 1GHz processor capable of handily powering everything from games and HD video to streaming movies. The smartphone is being offered on multiple carriers under different names: on T-Mobile, it's the Samsung Vibrant; on Verizon, the Samsung Fascinate; on AT&T, the Samsung Captivate; and on Sprint, the Samsung Epic 4G. The Samsung Vibrant and Samsung Captivate, both reviewed by eWEEK, offer some of the best multimedia features seen on a smartphone. However, a few applications, including the Samsung Media Hub touted as an iTunes-killer, were not available yet; and some of the hardware and software could use a bit of tweaking.
