• Samsung Galaxy S

    The Samsung Galaxy S was announced in March of 2010 was a high-end feature packed phone during its day. This was the start of Samsung's global takeover and although this particular phone saw many iterations and variants here in the state and overseas, it's still simply known as the Galaxy S.

    The Samsung Galaxy S has always been known for it's 1GHz Hummingbird processor. The GPU on this thing alone made it more than capable of handling almost any 3D game thrown at it. Other specs include a 5MP camera capable of recording some of the highest quality 720p HD video ever seen on a device and a 1.3MP front facing camera. It also came with a 4-inch 480x800 SAMOLED but strangely absent was any kind of LED flash. Also thrown in were 2 internal memory sizes, both an 8 GB and 16 GB version and at just 9.9mm thick, it was one of the thinnest Android phones available.

    Samsung also pre-installed the phone with Swype - an incredibly fast typing method, & an office viewer for viewing and editing all your important documents, spreadsheets and the like. With the sleek design, eye-catching specs and international distribution, the Samsung Galaxy S was a global hit.
