Yes! Samsung Galaxy S will be yet another name you will keep hearing from now. For some, it might come as a surprise, for some it might bring a big smile on their faces and for almost all of the readers, it would kindle an utmost interest of my impressions about it, not the hardware but the software, Android. I know what are the expectations here, but you have to wait and don’t worry, I have bought it, so it’s not going to run anywhere.
The first thing that comes into one’s mind [those who know me pretty well], like how @m_krishna obviously commented, why to purchase? Then, it wasn’t an easy decision for me, considering the price of it. It costed me around 25,000 Rupees :( But I had to do it someday, Indian PR agencies weren’t easy enough to approach and many of you really wanted me to have my hands over Android, WP7 and iOS as well. Above all, I bought it as a gift to someone special, so it’s worth all the price, isn’t it?
While the front cover of package reads “Future Beyond Smartphone”, it was interesting to see the detailed specs on the back as this is something that Nokia always been shy upon (obvious reasons, even if their implementations are one of the best).
The mention of Exchange ActiveSync (Gmail) alarmed me a little as with Nokia when it comes to mail, all were allowed, be it Gmail or Ovi. But such things will be discussed later as I am completely new to Android as of now.
If I compare the packaging of the S with that of the Nokia N8, I must say it’s slimmer in width but taller (will see the handset later on) and shows off the apps pretty much, than the minimalistic Nokia.
While the Galaxy S package is slightly thicker than the Nokia N8, you know the device is just 9.9mm thick. It surely makes you feel that it’s going to be a treat to see and use.
So as of now, that’s all from my side. We’ll have to wait till the one for whom I’d purchased this this sees it. Sorry guys.
But I do know, you want to hear my words, you want to hear many many things. So, the time starts now, I need your help here. In the next one week, send me some comments about the device and what I should write about or what I should focus on while reviewing. I want my review to contain your content, from all the people who wanted to know about Android from the perspective of a nearby friend witnessing it.

hey congrates dude…
Would like your review on it, first the specification of it like secondary camera most importantly as generally androids dont support video calls on 3g network except some like galaxy, etc…
And also the mail feature, does it only support Exchange Active syncronisation wid Gmail kya and not hotmail as i use it particularly contacts syncronisation on exchange server as our nokia gives customisable MfE client…
bro a big congrats for the device 🙂
I am very happy about this as i will see some android review from you now 🙂
BTW these samsung India and Nokia India PR guys things we are god you must beg
cant wait for duel
Congrats on the new handset, i am also considering galaxy s, but somewhat confused between the original galaxy s and the new cheaper galaxy s lcd 4gb, any suggestions. i already have an n8, it will be my second phone.
If you already have N8 then no harm in going for SGS SL that might be available under 19k now. You will save around 6k and will loose only display at most, wont even notice that
Cool, but dont leave Your N8! 😀
No chance mate. This is a gift for someone. N8 will stay with me always
Good going. Pay particular attention to the contact and social integration, background apps, gaming, battery life enhancement, and usability.
Good Choice bro PLZ dont compare the UI of both. But do compare the UX 😀
There are UI related elements that are bound to be compared and mentioned, but like everything has its pros and cons, I will try to reason from both the sides.
But yes! It seems that there will be.blood ;p
We are still waiting for that N8 vs. SGS post!
I know mate.. trying my best to find some time for the same.
