With the Samsung Galaxy S3 coming out soon and the Galaxy S2 being the most popular phone out right now, the bargain of the year must be the original Galaxy S. While Samsung have been reporting incredible sales figures in the region of five million per month, the company does tend to focus on the mid-range smartphones, but the S is certainly aiming for the top spot. The techno-fest that is the Galaxy S is deeply-impressive and you’d be mad to discount taking a look at the spec sheet.
A few years ago you had to change your phone every year as it was out of date as technology advanced. Although technology is still pushing ahead and new ideas are being created and generated all of the time, there is still a market for older smartphones as the difference in technology isn’t as big of a gap nowadays. The Galaxy S features many parts of the S2 but it’s now cheaper as the new models commands such a higher price. That means that if you’ve always hankered after an S then now is the time to make the most of the discounts. You can see which UK network has the best mobile phone contract for a Galaxy S on the Mobile Phone Checker website.
Let’s take a look at that impressive spec of the original Galaxy phone: it has the stunningly clear and crisp Super AMOLED screen that allows multi-touch and as it’s a 4” screen it’s more than capable of sucking you in and giving your plenty of room to play. Mobile websites are easier to browse and it’s more of a tablet size than a mobile. There is a liquidity to the way you move around the applications, which is due to the super-powerful 1GHz processor and the wealth of RAM that is available. The on-board storage can be upgraded to 32GB thanks to the microSD slot and as it runs on the Ice Cream Sandwich operating system you can make the most of Android’s incredible system.
It’s weighty and solid which gives it a premium feel without feeling that you’re carrying around a brick. There is an FM radio with RDS, a high-quality 5 megapixel camera and superb HD video camera. There are many pre-installed apps such as Gmail, Maps, Google Search and Google Talk, with a vast array that can be downloaded from Google Play. The custom widgets for Facebook and Twitter mean you’re never far away from your friends and updating your statuses takes seconds.
The great thing about the Galaxy S is it’s really a stunning-looking phone so fashionistas and style-mongers will adore it.
