PCWorld: Preview – Hot New Samsung Android Phone

With a fast processor, stunning 4-inch screen and slick Samsung Smart Life touch interface, the Galaxy S may be worth waiting for. It’s expected out this summer.

“At CTIA Tuesday, Samsung introduced its most powerful Android phone to date, the Galaxy S. Powered by Android 2.1, the smartphone boasts a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, a 1GHz processor , a 5-megapixel camera with HD video capture and is the first phone with Samsung’s new Smart Life user interface. I only briefly got my hands on the Galaxy S (until another journalist snatched it from me), but I was impressed with what I saw.

When I first picked up the Galaxy S, I was amazed with how thin and lightweight it is. This is due in part to the Super AMOLED technology, which the Samsung first introduced at Mobile World Congress on the Samsung Wave. Super AMOLED technology has touch sensors on the display itself as opposed to creating a separate layer (Samsung’s old AMOLED displays had this extra layer) making it the thinnest display technology on the market. Super AMOLED is fantastic; my low-light photos truly don’t do it any justice. Colors burst out of the display and animations appeared lively and smooth.”
