I have a Samsung Vibrant

Posted by on July 26, 2010 • Filed Under Geekiness

I’m the owner of a Samsung Vibrant, an Android phone that is part of the Galaxy S series from Samsung. I’ve been an Android user for a while now. I purchased an HTC Dream, aka. T-Mobile G1 on February, 2009 and I fell in love with the Android OS, it was the first phone on the Market using Android and I immediately knew that the OS was going to go very far. I said: “The iPhone is about to have some competition” and boy was I right.

After a while the G1 was being too slow for me, which was understandable because it was the first Android phone, so I knew that the internal memory and processor wasn’t much. That’s when I went the Cyanogen way and rooted my phone, which made it a little faster and got to use a lot more goodies.

Recently, I was seeing a lot of Android phones being released with 1GHz processors, more memory and awesome stuff like that, and seeing how the G1 was becoming more obsolete each day (updates stopped at 1.6 Donut version, if it weren’t for the 2.1 Cyanogen ROM I used I would have been low on the bandwagon) I decided it was time for an upgrade. So, last Friday I went to T-Mobile and bought this sexy new phone.

Some really cool features the phone has:

  • 4 Inch Super AMOLEDâ„¢ Touchscreen (Which looks Amazing!)
  • 1-GHz Hummingbird Processor
  • Avatar Movie (Directed by James Cameron) preloaded on the device, and in HD!
  • ‘The Sims 3 Collector’s Edition’ preloaded on the device
  • 16 GB Built-in Memory, and you can add up-to 32GB MicroSD in External Storage space
  • 5 Megapixel Camera with 720p Video Capture

Those are a few perks about the phone. Let me tell you, it is awesome. I’m really loving it, it is a huge change from a G1, especially since the G1 has a physical keyboard and the Vibrant doesn’t, but I’m totally loving using the Swype keyboard, I’m getting faster at it. The only thing people complained about were a few GPS issues, but there’s a fix out there that solves it (I already applied the fix, which doesn’t affect the phone guarantee, and it works so much better).

So there you go, a mini review about my Samsung Vibrant, if you love Android and touch screen phones, then I totally recommend the Samsung Vibrant!

    I'm glad you love the phone, babe. It's my first ever Android phone (and smartphone for that matter) and I have to say it's easily one of the best that I've tried. Compared to the G1 and the iPhones that I've tried, the image quality and processing capabilities are much better. It's smooth sailing no matter which application I'm running, so I also strongly recommend it to anyone that wants a phone upgrade.

    I have a Samsung Sunburst, which is totally on the lower end of the smart phones, but I absolutely adore it. My last phone was a samsung and it lasted me for almost 5 years. Good choice!

    When our HD2 got dropped in the toilet a little over a week ago, I pretty much had my mind made up on the mytouch, but they did also show me that phone. I didn't know about the sims3 though! hee hee that might have pushed me over the edge! I am not big on samsung, and then the camera didn't have a flash so thats basically why i went ahead with the mytouch slide! but i'm glad you like it! and yes, android is awesome :)
