Samsung Fascinate

Last updated: Nov 16th, 2010.

The Samsung Fascinate is the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy S line of phones. Much like it's brothers, it includes the same 5.0MP camera capable of taking some of the best quality 720p HD video at 30fps. Unlike the other Galaxy S phones in the states, its one of the thinnest out of the bunch and features an LED flash for low light snap shots. With a 1GHz Hummingbird processor it can easily speed through everyday tasks and features one of the most powerful GPU's for smooth gaming.

It can easily be considered as one of - if not the best of the Galaxy S lineup here in the states and it's on one of the largest networks in the U.S.
