MY review of the Samsung Galaxy S
Very good. loud and clear speaker.
The email reader is good (although it does take a few seconds to open up), and has a yellowish background to make reading easier, but its infuriating that they have taken away the functionality to let you file mails !!!!!
SWYPE is a fantastic keyboard assistant. I can't stand on screen keyboards, but this is really convenient and really fast. Just drag your finger over the keys and it has a surprisingly high success rate of guessing the word you wanted. The more you use it, you start to pick up nice little tricks on how to make it work even faster for you. Very nice ... shame its not in Android market yet for other phones.
I did have some issues with the screen freezing as the processor took time to "think" (especially when opening the mail program). I didn't expect that, but its nothing like as slow as my Wildfire.
There is also a great feature that can make your phone into a WiFi hotspot. This is standard on all Android 2.2 (FROYO) devices, but this product currently ships with Eclair (2.1) - so it's good that Samsung added this feature.
