Best of the Galaxys

It seems like news about the Samsung Galaxy S just keeps on coming. The latest Galaxy S phone, the Fascinate and the last to release on Verizon is now the new hype and is predicted to release sometime in September.


So what’s the difference between all of the Galaxy S phones, other than the obvious fact that it’s on different carrier’s?

Here’s the breakdown and our take on each phone.

Common Features
1 GHz processor
Super AMOLED screen
5.0 Megapixel camera
Android 2.1 (Eclair)

Samsung Epic 4G – Sprint
This is the fully loaded version of the Galaxy S. It sports a full QWERTY keyboard and has a front facing camera, which none of the other Galaxy S has. In addition, it sports a flash as well.
Our take:  The best Galaxy S phone for corporate users who prefer a keyboard to hack out those office emails.

Samsung Captivate – AT&T
The best Android device on AT&T. This phone has a more industrial boxy feel. The downside to this phone is that it’s missing a flash.
Our take: The best Galaxy S phone for users that prefer something other than an iPhone; maybe users that are  stuck on AT&T because your other half has to have the to die for iPhone and you can’t switch providers! (sound familar anyone?)
[Update]: RadioShack is offering a free Samsung Captivate with a 2 year contract with AT&T. This is an awesome deal if you choose to stick with AT&T.

Samsung Vibrant – Tmobile
The higher end Android device on Tmobile. This Galaxy S is also missing a flash, otherwise no complains here; nice phone on a very affordable provider.
Our take: The best Galaxy S phone for parents to buy for their kids that are begging for that iPhone but you just don’t want to pay that hefty bill. Probably since they’re milking you dry already between the food they eat and the clothes that they want to buy 🙂 This is a steal for parents especially if you caught the 1 cent deal that Amazon was running!
Samsung Fascinate – Verizon
The last to arrive and our favorite. It lacks the front facing camera but it does have a flash.
Our take: The best Galaxy S phone for everyday users. This phone is powerful and lightweight (since it doesn’t have the full QWERTY keyboard). It supports Exchange for your office needs, and playful enough for your after work needs thanks to all the apps offered in the Market.
