The Unlocked iPhone 4 has a new and very formidable competitor in the Samsung Vibrant which is the T-Mobile variant of the Samsung S Galaxy that you might not have heard of. This phone is a very good choice for the person who wants to buy a strong smartphone and in fact we feel that this phone might just have the capacity to swing some of the potential buyers of the iPhone to their favor. This device is a great asset to the T-Mobile carrier and it will surely dissuade many people from switching to AT&T with the Apple iPhone 4. We are pretty excited to have the chance to sample this phone for ourselves and we can say that we are impressed.
The design of the Samsung unlocked Galaxy S which T-Mobile went for is more closely related to the original phone’s look and we feel they have done the right thing here. The screen of the phone is the new and very exciting super AMOLED screen and the capacitive navigation buttons caught our attention. It also has dedicated volume keys which make this phone look really smooth. However the phone’s more visible bezel makes this less sleek as compared to the Captivate. As for the hardware, other than the AMOLED screen, its 5 megapixel camera, 16 GB built in memory and microSD card input slot. There is also Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0 other than these. The memory card on this phone can be taken out and replaced without having to take the battery out or reboot this phone, which save the users from a lot of hassle.
The Android 2.1 adorns this phone and is good enough for now. The skin is the Samsung S Life User Interface and you can play around with it. Other than this, there are a number of other features you must look forward to in this great device.
