Taking a cue from the iPhone, Samsung has launched its next Google Android phone, which has also been christened with the letter S.
The Samsung Galaxy S is the second Google Android phone in the manufacturer’s stable, and it’s an impressive contender.
It runs the latest 2.1 Android operating system, which in itself is a massive step up from the existing Samsung Android phone, the Galaxy Icon. It’s powered by a 1GHz processor, which will offer significant performance benefits, especially when it comes to speed.
Yet another tick for the Samsung Galaxy S comes in the form of the 4-inch Super AMOLED WVGA display, which is one of the most impressive on the market. Combine this with the 5-megapixel with HD recording (720p) and you have some impressive multimedia functionality.
Getting around the handset was a fairly simple affair with the Galaxy S boasting a better layout than its predecessor, with key functions displayed as icons that can be rearranged to suit the user.
Another feature is voice recognition for dialling out or activating Google search, neither of which was foolproof, but still fun to play around with.
