The Samsung Galaxy S is an Android 2.2 Froyo smartphone featuring a vivid, super-bright 4.0 Super AMOLED display. The impressive 480 x 800 resolution allows for seamless web navigation in full-width. Complementing the gorgeous display is the phone's HD video recording and playback functions. Despite cramming in so many pixels, the Galaxy S is incredibly fast thanks to the 1 GHz processor which allows for zero lag zooming, transitions and panning. This Android smartphone is embedded with the PowerVR SGX540 3D graphics engine which allows it to handle CPU intensive applications like HD gaming with ease. The Samsung Galaxy S features the Digital Natural Image engine (DNIe) which greatly enhances the on-screen clarity.

The Samsung phone sports a 5 megapixel camera sensor on the front and a VGA secondary camera on the rear. The Galaxy S supports HD video recording (720p @ 30 fps). The camera features auto-focus, face recognition, white balance, ISO adjustment, anti-shake, auto-contrast and blink detection, and you can tap on the screen to focus on a particular spot.


The Galaxy S  ports a thin, lightweight rectangularish chassis with a carbon fiber like matte on the rear panel. The handset AMOLED screen sits tad recessed from the edges, protecting it from scratches when kept face down on a surface. The rest of the phone's front is shared between the buttons, a secondary VGA camera, earpiece and the two dot sensors.

The Samsung Galaxy S deviates from the typical Android button arrangement with its home, back and physical menu button combination. Long pressing the menu button pulls up the search function. The Galaxy S face also houses the accelerometer, light & proximity sensors for auto orientation, light adjustment and auto turn off.
