Unboxing the Samsung Galaxy S

I have a Samsung Galaxy S and these are photos of the unboxing tradition. The phone (you can also call it by its more ho-hum name, the i9000) comes in an elegant “small carbon footprint” black box that will help save the environment. It comes packed with the usual perks: charger, USB cable, manual, and removable battery. No microSD expansion card is included in the box I got, although the device itself has 16GB of internal memory.

It is apparent that 4 inches of screen real estate is the sexy norm these days. The Galaxy S has this and something more: a really bright AMOLED screen that rivals Google’s Nexus One. Apparently this screen technology incorporates sensors onto the touch screen itself increasing the overall sensitivity. I tried it and it works.

That photo above doesn’t do the phone justice. The bright AMOLED is kick ass. You really have to see it for yourself. Full review to follow. We’ll be taking a look at Samsung’s layered UI over Android and Social Hub, their very own social aggregator. The Galaxy S comes with v2.1 and will be upgradable to FroYo later on. Cool beans.

The Samsung Galaxy S is exclusive to Globe Telecommunications for the first month of release. It’s priced up in the 30k range.
