What I like about my Samsung Galaxy S

Personalized home screens
You get seven home screens with Samsung Galaxy S so you get to put a lot of widgets and apps that you use on daily basis on the home screens!

Each screen can be personalized so you can have one screen dedicated to Internet (Browser, Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, Emails, etc), one for music, one for calendar/daily briefs and one for photos. You can even have one screen dedicated for your boyfriend (put his contacts details, picture folder of you and him, the Direct Message widget so you can just touch and send message from the screen itself, etc). Hehe.

Super AMOLED screen
This feature you cannot deny lah. Super AMOLED screen is fantastic. You have to see it, feel it, and experience it, to believe it! The color display is so lively that you just want to show off to all your friends. Haha.

This is another feature that will make anyone impress. Without having to lift your finger, you can type a message by just drawing the path of the word you intend to type. Swype will try to identify the word you type and if it is unable to identify, it will list you some choices. Below is my attempt at typing the word ‘Help’. Notice that I didn’t even start from the letter ‘H’? Yeahh, I didn’t and it was still intelligent enough to identify the word I intended.

Do you also know that this is the fastest way to type on a touchscreen? PROVEN through a Guinness World Record in March 2010 by a Swype intern named Franklin Page. He managed to input 160 characters in just 35.5 seconds using Swype. Oh wai~

YOU MUST LOVE WHAT THE CAMERA CAN DO TO YOUR PICTURES. With so many modes to choose from and at 5.0mp, this brings down all the smartphone household names like iPhone and Blackberry.

Must you NOT love the super nice video quality especially when viewing it on your Super AMOLED screen? O_o Besides this, read how Sapiensbryan views his video on his TV screen without having to transfer it to a CD or DVD. Yup, we’re talking direct output here. :)

Pinch and zoom
I know you could do this on most of the touch screen phones but yeahh, I love to find blackheads on my nose in my pictures and zooming into websites for no particular reasons but simply thrilled at the pinch and zoom feature on the phone. Haha!

Music player
Although I’ve mentioned in my previous post that I don’t really like the audio quality while recording video, I beg to differ on the music player because it is awesome! I usually can’t stand music played without the earphone because the sound projection is just bad, but with Samsung Galaxy S, I don’t have to play my CDs in the car, I can just play the songs out from the phone. For more review on the music player, go over to Keeman’s blog.

Must forgive me for loving the fact that I can wifi from this phone because my Corby cannot, okay? I can even turn my Samsung Galaxy S into a wireless modem so my brother and I can enjoy surfing the net from several laptopSSSS. But the downside is – how fast can a mobile internet be?? LOL! Then there is the internet browser that loads fast and easy to use. For someone who loves to give her shout outs, the Twitter and Facebook widget is very useful too.

I know I have a lot of nice things to say about the Samsung Galaxy S. Fret not because tomorrow I will reveal to you some little things that I think Samsung ought to modify, improve and fine-tune.

i just wanna ask..i got this pgone for bout 2 weeks...but i dont know how or where to set so i can use swype...can u tell me.

one more u put the picture of ur gf/bf there...haa?

atreyu strange said...

@fndrocka - to set swype, go to any message you got, then tekan and hold lama2 kat kotak 'type to compose' sampai pop up box keluar. go to 'input method' and choose 'swype' and your swype is good to go!

utk picture frame, go to your home screen (better if terus cari home screen yg masih kosong), tekan and hold your screen lame2 sampai pop up box keluar. choose 'android widgets' then choose 'picture frame'.

erm, harap faham ape yg aku cuba nk explain! haha!

fndrocka said...
