Samsung Galaxy S Plus - Pocket-lint

 

This is the phone that the original Galaxy S should have been. It's fast, slick and a pleasure to use

Powerful, fast, light, extensive feature list, good still and video quality, latest Android version

Still a little expensive, it looks like last year's phone

Although we have some minor complaints with things like TouchWiz, we've loved our time with the Samsung Galaxy S Plus. This is a solid phone that has been improved greatly by the speed upgrade and the new version Android OS (Android 2.3.3, Gingerbread)...

Samsung Galaxy S Plus

 

The first Samsung Galaxy S caused quite a fuss amongst smartphone users and Fandroids alike, ultimately becoming one of the best-selling Android phones of all time. If it's now time for an upgrade and you're not so keen on paying more for the Galaxy S2...

Considering we loved the original Galaxy S, it will come as no surprise that we love the Galaxy S Plus. While it's by no means on with the Galaxy S2, the Galaxy S Plus offers-up a competitive spec-sheet for a much-lower price.

Samsung Galaxy S Plus review: Enter the Snapdragon

 

Someone has just finished off a six-pack of energy drinks. The Samsung Galaxy S plus is nearly identical to the original Galaxy S, save for the different chipset, which packs a faster 1.4GHz processor.

Quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support ; 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support ; 4" 16M-color Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of WVGA (480 x 800 pixel) resolution, PenTile matrix ; Super slim at 9.9mm ; Android OS v2.3.3 with TouchWiz 3.0 UI...

No flash for the camera ; No dedicated camera key ; Fingerprint prone plastics ; Virtually unchanged year-old design ; Adreno 205 GPU is weaker than PowerVR SGX540 in the original

The Galaxy S Plus makes sense for people who don't want to spend over the odds on the latest tech. Samsung is probably right not to make a big noise about it. The phone was first announced as a Russia-bound upgrade of the original Galaxy S. It will be...
