We’ve seen the Samsung Galaxy S more than a few times now, so why would the T-Mobile Samsung Vibrant unboxing be worth a look? Well, it’ll actually become available next week and that’s good enough for us!
The Samsung Vibrant is the one Galaxy S variant that keeps it close to home when it comes to looks. It still sports the overall design of the original Galaxy S, even with the little bump at the bottom of the device on the back. The Vibrant, as well as all of the other variants, have taken on the standard Android four-button configuration, instead of the three buttons the original had. If you loved the look of the original and don’t have any desire to buy an unlocked device that can only be used on Edge, the Vibrant is the closest to the real deal you’re going to get.
There are two standout features that all the Galaxy S phones will have, the gorgeous Super AMOLED display and the snappy Hummingbird processor. These two things combined in one device will surely make many media junkies quiver in excitement, as this will be an experience you won’t find on any other device on the market.
We’ve seen the power of the Hummingbird processor on (online) paper, and on video. We’ve also seen the Super AMOLED display in all it’s glory as well, making it a solid competitor to the iPhone 4′s Retina Display. As a matter of fact, the Vibrant, along with all of the other variants are probably the most iPhone-like Android phones you’ll be able to find in the United States. This is due to Samsung’s TouchWiz UI, which is miles ahead of the software sloppily thrown on the Samsung Behold 2. It’s slick, has some very nice custom Samsung widgets, and if you don’t like the iPhone-esque application drawer, there’s a home replacement for that.
I’ve been on the fence between getting the Vibrant to stay with T-Mobile, or switching over to Verizon to get the Droid X. After playing around with the Droid X for a bit, it’s quite an amazing device, but I still think I’m leaning towards the Vibrant and I haven’t even seen the thing in person yet! With the Vibrant’s awesome display and CPU, it almost makes me forget about the Droid X’s HDMI port, higher camera resolution, and screen size.
So what’s your call, Vibrant or Droid X? We may have to do a showdown.
