Galaxy S 4G Hands On

And just like that, some first hands on photos and videos of the Samsung Galaxy S 4G are hitting the net.  I’m sure we will start to see more of these pop up as the day goes by.  You know, since Samsung has a US focused event tonight at MWC.  Enjoy!

    you buy this phone your a sucka!!

    • YourMama

      This is a very nice phone with a 21 Mbps radio to boot. Why not buy this and any other phone when they come out? We’re phone geeks. When have we ever let paying full price for a phone ever stop us?

    Didnt know there’s a US focused event! That’s good to know.

    I just can’t wait for the ROM to get pulled off of this thing so we can get the Vibran’ts FFC working properly.

  • Petey

    There’s no reason why I should upgrade my current vibrant to this phone. I’m going hold off abit longer to see what’s other phone that tmobile might be carrying!

    now that the galaxy s 2 has been revealed this looks less and less tempting.

    T-MobileTV also comes on a Vibrant 3G with Froyo…nothing to do with the 4G Vibrant as he made it sound.

  • whosaidwhat

    Well, this might be a good handset but the S2 has it all. I read the full specs and features on Samsung’s website last night and this thing is full featured, though I’m not crazy about the UI or UX as they’re calling it. I know people hate Samsung because of updates but I don’t mind. And the fact that they upgraded the S1 all over the world except the US has me thinking it’s not them but rather our carrier causing the delay. I mean, can anyone explain to me why T-Mobile has the galaxy update but not the other 3 big carriers?

    I WANT the S2 on T-mobile and I hope that’s not too much to ask in 2011.

        Hey if you would have waited, you could also have “random reboots” as a reason. You were wise whippa snappa.

        • whosaidwhat

          Did that actually happen to yours? My wife’s NS have NEVER rebooted. Obviously this isn’t happening to all the handsets since I’m sure the return rate would be very high.

      Sure…TMO will get the S2, when they’re good and ready. And then it will probably look cheap and appeal more to the youthful, vs the professional. I’m not touching anything with touchwiz. I’m a tad spoiled with the Nexus One. I’ll consider Sense in it’s latest iteration but no Sammy.

    I don’t know about you all but I’m getting one as soon as it launches on T-Mobile USA. If 2.4 releases before this phone does I’m going to be pissed off at Google more than anything. They need to slow down and put more into these updates. We STILL don’t have native screenshooting!!!!

    • whosaidwhat

      which, the S2 or the S1 4G?

        s2 for sure man, upgrading from S1 to S1 4G is like upgrading from fat girl to fat girl with make up.

        Yeah I meant to reply below but, I’m skipping this one entirely.. not worth the new contract. I already have a Vibrant on 2.2. The SGS II is beastly and I like Touchwiz.

    Just a vibrant with FFC. Come on T-Mobile, why get a mirror image of what you all ready have. We want one of the newer models like the new S2 with all the bells and whistles. This vibrant IMO is a waste of time. No other carrier would want or take last years model why the hell are you? Customers want new, the vibrant is not new. Very freaken sad. Many customers including myself might be heading to other carriers to enjoy new technology. I want to stay with T-Mobile but will leave if I have to. Give us something to stay, not tablets but a phone that is impressive with kick ass specs.

    • kuni

      Either way, it has become a pattern. Motorola’s best new phones usually end up on Verizon (and recently the Atrix 4G went to AT&T). HTC is the same, but the leading edge (at the time) EVO 4G went to Sprint. And iPhones are so far only on AT&T and Verizon.

      T-Mobile USA seems to gets leading edge phones only when they are “sponsored” by a third party does , e.g., the Nexus One and Nexus S from Google, or the original Galaxy S which Samsung released to all four carriers.

      Deutsche Telekom is a big force in the global telecom world. It should use some of that leverage to get T-Mobile back into the game.

    The classic “adding insult to injury” in terms of marketing. If I were a Vibrant owner, I would be pretty p*ssed off.

      i own the first one im not mad u no y because it the same thing im happy really bcuz wen the GALAXY S 2 come out i can upgrade i feel sorry for ppl who need a smartphone now n have 2 decide

  • Benzworld

    So I’m a little confused. Is this suppose to be the Samsung Galaxy S 2?
    The Galaxy S 2 Samsung unveiled yesterday at MWC has a Super Almond Plus display it has a 4.2 inch screen. It has a dual core Exynos processor. 8mp rear camera with 1080p HD recording and HD playback a 2mp front facing camera. It comes with an updated version of Touch wiz it has Android 2.3 gingerbread and the phone is even thinner than the original coming in at 8.49mm thin. Samsung is claiming it’s the thinnest smart phone made to date.

    • bryan

      No this is not the Galaxy S 2, this is simply an updated vibrant. It is basically the same as the original Vibrant except it has a Front Facing Camera and an updated Radio to support 4G. It is the first phone to support the full 21 Mbps of T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network.

        Too bad a G2 literally pulls in faster speeds… literally side by side after multiple speed tests. This thing isn’t even out and its already irrelevant.

  • Jake

    This is the mt3g all over again. Like im supposed to think a phone is new because you slapped a headphone jack on it. Yes its 4g but not the most updated firmware. In a world where technology gets outdated within a couple months, this phone will be in weeks. I’m holding out for the mythical pyramid.

    Hey, maybe I can get one good thing out of this release. New backplate for my Vibrant :)

    • twitch110

      I’m pretty sure the backplate won’t fit. I remember reading something about a larger battery which requires a larger backplate. I might be wrong though. But i can definitely recall reading something of that nature. I want that new backplate badly though.

  • Vibrant Addict

    I wonder if I can convince Tmobile to do a warranty or some type of exchange from my broken gps Vibrant to this. Customer service, get ready for my call.

    Saw the thing today… held it in my hand. The graffiti black and silver paint job on the battery cover reminded me of the ghetto items sold in a Chinese convenience store. 3 for $5 anyone? Also, I benchmarked the SOB and it came in just under the Epic which has been out for over a year. This is nothing but a sales gimmick aimed at profiting off transitionary technology. Either wait or get a G2… the thing is beautiful.

    • Beastly

      Hey, there, time traveler. The Epic was released in August. How does that make it over a year old? But yes, the G2 is beautiful and underrated.

  • Drew

    This is just all kinds of fail…. Why, why, why Samsung are you STILL making devices without a camera flash. Maybe you get a pass on the first one but WTF for the second iteration. You’re getting lazy Sammy and starting to look like RIM lately with 1 or 2 subtle changes to the hardware, slap a new number on it (4G) and call it a day. I call it a FAIL…

    • JOE

      So get a different phone and quit hanging around bitching. See you later. Adios. Have a nice day.
      And going from 7.2 Mbps to 21 and a front facing camera is a huge change dude. If you want a flash go buy a camera.

      • Drew

        LOL!! Really?? I’m not hanging around bitching. This device is part of the Galaxy family of phones and the ONLY one without flash. You’re an idiot if your excuse for not having LED flash on a device in 2011 is to carry a camera…. More FAIL!! Having 7.2 HSPA on T-Mo’s network is plenty fast. Have you seen the Nexus S destroy the G2 in speed tests?? And the G2 is supposed to be twice as fast. Samsung is just lazy with this phone pure and simple. Galaxy S II is an upgrade, this is not.

        • Tom A.

          I’ve never seen an LED flash that didn’t suck.

    Get the f#ck outta here with this phone unless you’re gonna offer some type of trade in for the old vibrant!

  • Bbrownell007

    Are they serious? This thing is a joke. I can’t believe T-Mobile is going to settle for a trash like this from Samsung. The first Vibrant was average (when it came out anyway) only because it had the AMOLED screen. All they did here is put a ffc and added the HSPA+ radio. I was very disappointed when I saw the video. If Samsung doesn’t get its act together, I’m never buying another Samsung phone again. Good thing my Samsung HDTV still works well.

  • Shabaz

    i have scrolled through the comments and see some people saying this is a major upgrade from a vibrant??
    Thats a joke. Who cares that the phone has faster speeds… you people act like the phone is a laptop and will stream hollywood movies with a netflix account anytime soon. This is a slap in the face to vibrant users, only benefits new contracts, and it should have a flash… not that i personally care about a flash but at the prices and day in age we are in high end phones should include everything especially when they are an upgraded version.

  • BigJ

    Has anyone heard anything yet about the GPS being better on this one? I love my vibrant but the GPS is terrible. I was considering selling my vibrant and getting the new one but not if it still has the same crappy GPS issues.

    • Tmo

      The gps has been fixed for a long time you should google search xda development and run gps restore

  • Shelby

    NO FLASH ugh the stupidty

    To everyone who says “Go buy a camera if you want a flash” – NO. If I spend $500+ for something with a 5 mp camera that I can instantly upload pictures to Facebook / online album / Walgreens for prints with, then I will absolutely be pissed about lack of flash. I have 3 month old and a 3 year old and I carry enough crap around that I shouldn’t have to carry another thing (camera) if I don’t have to. And when they do cute stuff, it just makes more sense to whip out my phone, take a pic, and text it to my whole family in seconds. Why should I have to pay MORE money for a camera just to take pics and do nothing else then wait til we’re home, take out the memory card, put it in my laptop, wait foreverrrr for my laptop to upload the pics – you get my drift. I mean, I had a crap flip phone from at&t with a flash back in the day – it’s not that freakin hard.

    I think the Galaxy S 4G is TMO’s temporary answer to Verizon’s IPhone…..It’s gonna be cheaper, faster & “fresher”….

  • KodakCEO

    OK, these Android cameras do allow you to increase the exposure (more light, brighter photo), and unless you are trying to take an action shot, I’ve found it does work pretty well.

    On the flipside, has anyone actually used or seen an Android flash that WORKS WELL?

    • Guest

       Yes, the HTC Incredible flash works well. A lot better then not having a flash, for sure. As nice as owning an actual camera? No, but you’re buying a phone, not a camera. Unless you’re looking for a camera, in which case I might suggest another forum.
