galaxy s.... the super amoled display is really really good.... the hardware is actually quite solid... if you want a bigger screeen wait for the droid x.
nice smackdown comparison
Seems like the Galaxy has an edge over Desire. But according to an Omnia user friend of mine, Samsung's aftermarket support leaves much to be Desired.
Oh one question for the Galaxy S users: can this phone be charged via the micro USB cable? This is a must have feature for me, as I want it capable of charging from any USB port. Thanks.
Ok... just bought a Samsung Galaxy S at Singtel shop. Now playing with it and searching for all the interesting apps to install. The user interface not as nice as the HTC sense, and it lacks the track ball, but the phone is quite good and I'm very happy with it. Hope to find some nice theme to customize the home screen.
-Touchpal to replace stock keyboard (i have some serious troubles typing with the stock keyboard)
-LauncherPro to replace home screen (very snappy, seldom / no lags, in fact performs much better than Pantheon, and now it shows unread sms/missed calls counter)
-Handcent SMS for SMS (can customise pop-ups for incoming messages & makes my messaging app look like the iphone)
mSpot for syncing music
-Netcounter to track my 3G usage so my bills won't give me unwanted surprises
-Advanced Task Killer Free to free memory space
-Astro for file manager
-Aldiko as e-book reader
-Appbrain to replace Android Market
-Calwidget so I can see my calender on the homescreen
-Thinkfree Mobile to view documents
-Adobe Reader for reading pdf files
-Lookout for anti-virus / backup
Mort music player.
Oh btw, how do you find the Android when compare to the iPhone?
- RealCalc, All-in-1-Calc Free
- Depth of Field Calculator, Strawberry
- Unit Converter for Android, Convertos
- Barcode Scanner
- Sms Backup & Restore
- Asphalt5, Solitaire, Abduction!, Air Control, Frozen Bubble, Gem Miner
Transferring of the contacts from WM6 to Android got some problems though. All contacts were transferred, but the groupings were lost, and think I need to regroup them again.

What GPS softwares u guys use for the androids ? The native Google Navigtor looks great but it needs continuous data to load the map. I saw a review on Copilot that behaves pretty much like a Garmin interface with maps loaded onto the SD card but not sure if it has support for Singapore maps.
I also installed a couple of the following which can be gotten from Android Market:
- ShowNearby ( tells u wats interesting around the locality after they fix your gps location )
The updated version tells you where u can watch World Cup - but abit too late since now we can watch from the free telecast.
- Advance Task Killer
- Shazam - listens to the songs at the background for instance in a restaurant etc, and attempts to identify. I got it to ID some new chinese songs as well
- Handcent SMS
- Opera Mini
- Launcher Pro ( as recommeded by fellow android users )
- 3 - a rather cuboid showy music player, but i kinda like it for now
- Cinema Showtimes
- Beautiful Widgets
Since you are using the Galaxy S, try to get use to the Swype keyboard. It's damn good.
Photo Tools - Handy calculator for photography purposes (Sunny 16, DOF, Flash EV and even a grey card simulator!)
Armored Strike - A Gun Bound like game that has multiplayer.
Dolphin Browser HD - Awesome browser, much better than stock!
ShowNearBy - Local location aware application. Shows you nearest ATM etc etc
Wow! Just found out the Galaxy S can do video out to TV via the 3.5mm headphone jack. Unfortunately the cable is not included, and I have no idea where to buy the cable.
Love this phone.
Using a Desire here, not a bad phone especially after rooting it. Seems more useful after that especially with its wireless tether. The wired tethering application is the only app i use most of the time.
Your pictures speaks for you, not your camera.
For those who have the Galaxy S and interested in the video out feature, I just discovered that someone had got it working with Nokia's CA-75U composite cable.
Here is the pinout of the cable for those who would like to make their own cable.
Let me add another android app that i just installed - Market Enabler. Version 3.0.8 works for Froyo
Now the interesting paid applications appear
( haven bought anything yet though )
