Never imagined I could become addicted to a mobile phone, but this is more than just a mobile phone. Retired and in my mid sixties, my memory isn't too good, but now I wake up in the morning, roll over and check my calendar. I can set reminders and alarms so I never miss any appointments or birthdays, etc. Throughout the day I text, e mail, shop, bank, check my shares, take lovely photos even without a flash, upload them to Facebook instantly, make recordings and videos and use the gps for directions on foot or in the car. Last thing at night I enjoy listening to the radio while I write my journal, no longer on paper, now I can include a photo from the day, and then I read an e book.

All this from a beautiful, slim and smooth phone. Unbelievable! I just adore it!

For a good while now the iPhone has been (in many peoples eyes) the smart-phone to have, for its simplicity, speed, huge range of apps and solid design people have been splashing out ridiculous money to own an iPhone (myself included). After a while we learned that it is pretty restricted and that jail breaking is frowned upon (rather than encouraged like palms Dev mode and androids 3rd party apps) and the whole product is stupidly over priced for what you get.

This is where Samsung have seen a whole in the market and created a magnificent smart-phone, the Samsung Galaxy S i9000.
OK, it isn't 'cheap' by any means, and it isn't quite as well built as some may have hoped but it is far cheaper than the iPhone 4 and it has many features that are far more impressive. You can pick one up for around £300 in excellent condition and for what you get it isn't really that over priced.

The first thing you notice is the super AMOLED screen, I can't express just how bright and crisp it actually is. I read many reviews before buying my i9000 and they all boasted on how amazing the screen is, I was skeptical I must admit. Then i turned it on and I was blown away. The colours are so beautifully vibrant, everything is crystal clear, and the wallpapers that come with the phone look absolutely stunning. Even with the Brightness turned right down it is still super bright and is even very visible in bright sun lit areas. It is also very scratch resistant and seems to stay pretty clean without having to wipe it all day, possibly an oleophobic coating of some sort.

The HD camera takes a lovely photo and the 720p video recording is much much better than I anticipated, however the lack of flash is well... how can I say it... Stupid!

*I have the 16gb version of this, but I couldn't see it on Amazon. The phones are the same apart from this small detail.*

The first thing anyone notices about the Galaxy S is the screen. There are other smartphones out with the same size of screen (the HTC HD2, I believe) but the "super AMOLED" display really pops with brightness and colour. Normally I dismiss claims of "20% extra brightness, 80% sunlight reduction, 20% extra battery" as marketing guff, however, in the case of this technology, it appears to be at least somewhat true. The screen makes even mundane usage of the device something of a joy.

The phone is sold with Samsung's own interface on top, and in many ways it reminds me of the Sense UI on the HTC devices, though it does lack some of the widgets that came with my wife's HTC Hero, such as as the homescreen weather/time widget and the email widget. Similar applications were easily found on the Android Market. The touch whiz interface is clearly somewhat less polished and pretty than Sense, but it essentially does the same things.

And this phone is fast. The capacitive screen requires the lightest of touches to set the processor in motion and switching between apps, screens, pictures, albums is almost instantaneous. The machine is built on a 1ghz processor like the Nexus 1 and Desire, but it beats both in benchmarks and includes a dedicated graphics engine. I haven't had much opportunity to try many games, though the few I've tried (including Asphalt, a 3d heavy game) have run extremely well. It's just a shame that there aren't more big developers working in the Android Market at the moment.

Swype is a brilliant addition to text input on the device.

I have used a Iphone for the last 2 years, first one being a 8gb 2g model and then I got a 32gb 3GS.

I was still happy with my 3GS when I fancied a new bit of a kit as fellas do, so I called O2 and got it the next day with my contract.

Being so used to the Iphone's excellent touch screen I was a little concerned that the Galaxy S wouldn't compare to it.

Well I need not have worried. The Galaxy S' touchscreen is superb even for really big fingered people like me. No problems so far a month on with regular use with the screen. Also apart from being a great touchscreen the screen itself its superb, very bright, big and clear, also a lot easier to see in bright sunlight than the Iphone.

I am also very pleased with the Galaxy S uses Mini SD cards as I hate installing phone manufacturers software on my computer so it means I can just pop the Mini SD into my card reader and transfer my files with no nonsense. Also pleased with it has a normal battery rather than a non user replaceable one, so it means I can buy myself a new one should it ever be required.

The phone itself is very light but none the less feels well made and looks very nice. Call quality is good, and it holds reception very well. Wifi is also excellent. Build in speakers are pretty good for built in speakers, I mean they sound awful but better than anything I have used before.

Camera quality is ok considering its with a plastic lens (not a big fan of phone cameras) and the phone can capture HD video at 720p, I wasnt that fussed about the camera and HD recording but none the less its a nice touch to have.
