Samsung Corporation unveiled the new Unlocked Galaxy ( X series ) of Android devices recently. Quite a party was held to celebrate the release of this series. The event was dark, there were limitless drinks, and the food was great, catering to the needs of a hungry crowd. The main attraction of the evening, however, was, the new Galaxy S devices, for each U.S. carrier.
The most significant feature of these phones is Samsung’s Super AMOLED display. The special characteristic of this display is that there is a high contrast of black and white, which looks spectacular, has bright colors, and the display seemed even better than the iPhone 4’s display. Guests had the chance to hold the Unlocked iPhone4 and an AMOLED display set side by side to compare the two. Even though the resolution and crispness of the iPhone 4’s display is far superior to that of the AMOLED display, the AMOLED display looks much better from 2 feet away, and that is exactly the distance at which we hold our phones. So, the Galaxy S devices were better. But guests could not take the Galaxy S devices up to the roof and conduct a sunlight test. But there is evidence that the Galaxy S devices’ display is the best compared to other Android phones, when brought under sunlight.
The Samsung’s Unlocked Galaxy S phones are fast and gorgeous. But there is one downside to them. Despite being such high-end phones, they still had that cheap plastic feel that is common to Samsung phones. This put their strength and rigidity under doubt. The phones coming under this doubt were the Captivate, Fascinate and Vibrant, as they were all very thin phones.
