Who else is liking this phone?
I'm really feeling this phone for some reason. Samsung will always have the best screen tech and their hardware does not disappoint. I also really like the design of this phone, it looks professional for some reason.
Hopefully we will see all carriers get a version similar to this. I would consider going to Verizon just for this phone and knowing that Verizon will always get the top stuff. However, if I went to Verizon how does selling your phone work? With T-Mobile if I want a new phone I just sell my current one and buy the new one outright, how does that work with Verizon?

Looking like the Bionic or Thunderbolt have my attention at this point. I like Samsung, and still do (despite the Froyo situation), but I'm not digging this thing much. HATE the hardware buttons, and don't particularly care for the overall design of it either.

Is anyone else kinda dissapointed with Verizon's offerings and this phone? I mean no dual core and no nfc! Sure the screen is nice but now that Verizon is extending the amount of time I will have to wait to upgrade my phone I def. want to make sure that the phone I pick will be one that will be cutting edge for a while and this just feels like a half *** refresh of the Galaxy S phones with a really ugly chin! And lets not even get into the fact that this phone is surely destined to never get an OS update becuz its a Samsung.

Its a good phone but still lacking dual core. At least at&t's galaxy s 2 has a bigger 4.5 inch screen, 1750mAh battery and slightly faster procesor. At&t seems to have the better galaxy s this year.
I'm hoping for an Epic 4g 2 with a 4.3-4.5 super amoled plus screen, 1gb ram, improved camera, dual core procesor, etc.

---- And here is my thoughts roundup, of CES. (Still in a holding pattern, with the AC spam filter Gods) : - )
---- First, the things that impressed me, from CES. 1st: Samsung Infuse. Big battery, Big screen, Big memory, Big Processor, Big Camera. I hope we see a cdma version soon. 2nd: Samsung Galaxy Tab Love and support. They just keep adding to it. Media Hub support, DLNA, Media agreements, Gingerbread, etc. (my next TV could be a Sammy?)
Now for the disappointments: Really to many to count. 1st: No mention of Tablet phones? (Yeah, I want to carry around 2 devises, totalling $1400 2nd: HTC & Verizon. Saying this is not your next phone, but the one after that! - WHAT? - They obviously don't know us very well. Its just a warmed over Evo. (Infuse did better) 3rd: Phil going home a day early. L o l. (just kinda kidding) If this show had been, all it was hyped up to be. He would still be there!
I say Sammy won the day. As much as I hate to say it. I'm a Big HTC Fan. And have been waiting for their tablet, as well. (another no show there) I wanted to see something very special from them. Looks like tech. is on a 2 year cycle?
--- Thank you all for going, in our absence. And for all the Tweets. Looks like 2011 is going to be a very mediocre year.

This phone, like the rest of Samsung's mobile offerings, is crap.
Samsung doesn't believe in any of it's phones to be very good, which is why they feel they have to make a million permutations of the same phone to cover their butts. Ask yourself this: if you launched the Galaxy S series 6 months ago, what is the point of this phone? And if you think Samsung will support this device 6 months from now, you're mistaken. Samsung has already abandoned the Galaxy S phone (2.2 update not until March--when 3.0 is expected to be released!), and these devices are shipping next month with 2.2, when 2.3 came out last month.
Samsung is korean for "sucker".

I like the phone but I don't think that it will be worth the upgrade when it is finally released. If it had come out a month ago or was ready to come out today I would say that it would be a great phone to have. But if it comes out in thee months it will get lost in the crowd.
