Samsung Galaxy S I9000: DISPLAY



The largest Super AMOLED display in business is a great feat but the Samsung Galaxy S I9000 won’t stop there yet. The slim-fit case has room for a 1 GHz processor and a 5 MP camera with HD video recording, while the Android Éclair OS is the latest.
Anyway, Éclair it is – with the Samsung’s home-brewed TouchWiz UI on top, which is already found to notably improve the usability of the interface. You also have a choice between 8 and 16 GB of internal storage. It is more than enough to store those DivX and XviD videos that Galaxy S can play right out of the box.
The Galaxy S is all made of plastic. It is not of any concern as it wasn’t a problem for the Omnia series mobiles like Omnia or Omnia II or Omnia HD. The blue-dotted exterior of the phone, is definitely for the attention seekers, but it may not be to everyone’s liking.
But however eccentric, the Samsung I9000 Galaxy S back is nowhere near where majority people look. The magnificent 4” Super AMOLED display of WVGA resolution is as close to perfection as we have seen on a mobile phone and you just can’t help but admire it.
 The sensitivity is very good which is to be expected from a capacitive touchscreen device. The gentlest of touches will suffice, however gloves and styluses may be troublesome.
In a nutshell, the Samsung I9000 Galaxy S display is the key feature that will probably sell this phone to a bulk of phone enthusiasts. So far, the best display choice was a matter of compromise for either sunlight legibility or resolution contrast. Super AMOLED units are in no mood to compromise. This display is just an irresistible package.

FINAL Conclusion:

 Samsung Galaxy S I9000 not only has a performance edge over its competitors, it also is better in terms of usability thanks to TouchWiz. Also the royal Super AMOLED display is a great reason on its own to buy the Galaxy S I9000.
Be warned though, it is that you’ll ever go back to TFT. Which means, the question you need to ask is if you’re ready for a long-term relationship with Samsung.
