If you're talking about how they are similar "looking" that's obviously because Samsung use TouchWiz on both Bada and Android.

Have you used a Bada phone before? The UI is quite different from Android.

the sudden surge of new windows phone by htc and samsung is obviously in anticipation of nokia's own windows phone. windows phone are still new and many people are still reluctant to buy one, only the worldwide introduction of nokia's windows phone and subsequent campaign will help and samsung and htc are going to ride the wave if it is successful.

This does not look like an iphone, some of u are just trolling lol. This isn't their galaxy line ;)
Still, ugly design esp when compared to the sleek and smooth design of Nokia's debut WP.

Don't agrre, it's not an iphone. And I am the first to criticize Samsung for the lack of design. I want an Android, and I won't take GSII because of its poor design IMO. But this...this is a design I like. I don't think it's a copy of Iphone.

But ok, price is far too high, especially for the poor 8GB inside. Specification...well, it semms that WP7 is really really fast and responsive even on 1GHZ single-core, so with 1.4, it is not an issue. Let's see battery life.

Well, I'm far from a Samsung fan (far far...), but I d'ont understand your violent reactions, especially on the design.

AnonD-11450, 26 Sep 2011Well only 8gb internal store no card slot:-). And the design is ... moreAll manufacturers have their own designs. HTC have their own, SE have their own, Nokia have their own. Samsung, on the other hand: everything iPhoney. I can't understand why they can't design their own phones.

I guess this phone will seem outdated, in terms of specs for Android lovers... And charging 450 for it just because of Mango update wont work.. What is Samsung thinking??? They are not Apple...

  • Anonymous

U got to be kidding me, there's nothing impressive about this phone. Should be 300.

  • AnonD-11450

Well only 8gb internal store no card slot:-). And the design is soo yuck same old sammy design the htc phones ve got better designs:-).

  • The Priest

If it has got M$ or iOS on board....
...I will never touch it.....even if you give it to me free.

Sorry, but bad experiences and proprietary limitations of use are not something I want to pay for on mobile devices.

Can't we have a smaller, power-packed Galaxy instead? I don't want to carry a roof slate!

  • ozkaan

is this a SAMOLED + screen or just the ordinary pentile version from the original Galaxy S ?
