Samsung Galaxy S is hottest mobile phones launched this year.

The Samsung Galaxy S has the most impressive display I’ve ever seen on a mobile phone. The 4 inch “Super AMOLED” screen has 480×800 pixels resolution with 16 million colors. The icons look so organic, like they have been painted on the screen with colors. It is unbelievably bright, crisp and clear. Even in direct sunlight the screen is bright enough to read text.. Text on the capacitive touchscreen can clearly be read even if you’re at an almost 90-degree angle from it.

It has 1 GHz processor which is very fast for mobile. 512MB RAM. It runs on android 2.1. android OS means thousands of amazing apps. Social networking is supported out of the box. Its only 9.9 mm thick. Feels great to hold in hand. Its screen is made up of tempered glass which means super tough and highly scratch resistant. Touch feedback is excellent. It has 5MP camera but no LED flash is provided. The autofocus camera is excellent with lots of manual controls and supports 720p HD video recording. It has inbuilt 16 GB storage which is more than enough for most users.

The Music and Video playback is amazing. almost all the audio and video formats are supported. Even HD videos are supported. Watching a movie on 4″ Amoled screen is a treat.Multitouch is supported which means pinch zoom in pictures and browser. It supports 3D games which look great.

Battery provided is biggest I have seen in mobiles recently. Because of the monster hardware battery needs recharge every 24 hours. One feature I liked most is the messaging which is like chatting on PC. This phone has a long list of applications. I can say that its better than iphone 4. click here to see the comparison. The biggest reason to buy this mobile is the android OS which is open source. Its highly customizable. The current price is 28k. Although its expensive its worth every paisa.
