Samsung Vibrant review

 

We review the Samsung Vibrant, T-Mobile's version of the Samsung Galaxy S Android phone

Amazing display ; Phenomenal battery life ; Fast user experience, smooth user interface

Feels plasticky ; Power button shouldn't be on the side of the phone

T-Mobile was the first carrier to offer an Android phone but in recent history, all the big flagship handsets have been launched by other carriers. The Samsung Vibrant does a good job of bringing a higher end Android experience to T-Mobile, which is...

Review: Samsung Vibrant

 

Looks like an iPhone, smells like an iPhone, tastes like an iPhone. But brother, this ain't no iPhone.

Vibrant (ha!) 800×480 AMOLED screen is great for movies and video content. Shoots crisp 720p video at a buttery 30fps. Comes baked with multiple input options: Android keyboard, Samsung keyboard, and Swype. Sports TV-out and 5.1 audio. Solid call...

Piss-poor battery hinders its potential. Chassis feels cheap and plasticy. Tinny speakerphone is a blight on both calls and movies. Forget about indoor photos. Ships with a full copy of…Avatar

Samsung Vibrant (T-Mobile)

 

A stunning display and swift performance catapults the Vibrant to the top of the Android pack for T-Mobile customers.

The Android faithful on T-Mobile finally have a phone worth boasting about. The Samsung Vibrant's Super AMOLED display is a great showcase for content and apps, and it's a swift performing phone with a good amount of storage. We wish the Vibrant had a...

Samsung Vibrant

 

The T-Mobile version of Samsung's killer Galaxy S line of super Android phones, the Samsung Vibrant ($200 with a two-year contract, as of July 12, 2010) stands apart from its siblings due to the high-quality multimedia apps the carrier has preloaded on...

Great multimedia features and apps ; Stunning Super AMOLED display

Camera lacks a flash ; Interface can lag a bit

The Samsung Vibrant boasts a gorgeous Super AMOLED display and a bevy of multimedia features, but some users might be disappointed by the absence of a flash on its camera.

Samsung Vibrant (T-Mobile) review: Samsung Vibrant (T-Mobile)

 

Editors' note: We have updated the review and ratings since the original publish date to reflect new devices on the market.

The Samsung Vibrant boasts a brilliant Super AMOLED touch screen and comes preloaded with a number of entertainment goodies, including a full-length copy of "Avatar." The Android-based smartphone also offers 16GB of internal memory, full wireless...

The phone feels plasticky and slick. Battery life isn't the greatest. There's no camera flash.

Sleek and fast, the Samsung Vibrant is one of T-Mobile's top smartphones for entertainment, but its feature set takes a toll on the battery life.

Samsung Vibrant (T-Mobile)

 

The Vibrant connects to T-Mobile's and foreign 3G networks, as well as to 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi networks. The phone also has Bluetooth 3.0, which sounds exciting but doesn't offer any real-world advantages over version 2.1 of Android. Unlike AT&T's...

Fast. 1-GHz processor handles graphics well. Bright screen. PC syncing options. Great photos and videos. Free, full copy of Sims 3 included

Media store not ready yet. No voice dialing over Bluetooth. No tethering

The Samsung Vibrant is T-Mobile's super-phone, and it delivers a lot of power on some really inexpensive monthly plans.

Samsung Vibrant stands out as a fast-paced, stunning multimedia phone

 

A fine Android phone for T-Mobile

Speedy processor, colorful and vibrant display, 16 GB of storage space and microSD slot

No camera flash, lags occasionally

Galaxy S Vibrant

 

With a shape that's very similar to a larger, thinner iPhone 3GS, the Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant is noticeably brilliant, literally if not figuratively.

In terms of design, Samsung has definitely taken a less-is-more approach to the Vibrant - aka the Galaxy S Vibrant in Canada - in that it's conservative, elegant and functional. It also 'pops' likes nobody's business.

Review: Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant

 

There's no denying the popularity of Android phones as of late. Google's operating system has taken on a life of its own becoming more popular each month. Part of that may be due to the fact that a new Android handset seems to hit the market each and...

Light weight ; Stunning screen ; Front facing camera ; Fast processor

No flash ; Plastic backing feels cheap

Samsung’s Galaxy S Vibrant is an outstanding Android handset. The user interface is intuitive, the screen outstanding, and the features top notch. Some will complain the phone’s plastic backing makes it feel cheap, but I actually liked how light the...
