Samsung I9003 Galaxy SL First Look & Main Specification

Wee Thanks to Nuffnang i get another Android phone hands on to review! Samsung Galaxy SL! Being Android user for this 2 months made me reli understand what Android capable of and other phone not.

Anyway, dun b confuse by this model with the best seller Samsung I9000 Galaxy S. Both have similar design but nop! Both are difference phone! Galaxy SL is successor of Galaxy S. I just dun understand why Samsung still wrote Galaxy S instead Galaxy SL on the box, is kinda misleading though.

Here are the basic spec of this phone

4" 16M-color Super Clear LCD capacitive touchscreen of WVGA (480 x 800 pixel) resolution

Adobe Flash 10.1 support for the web browser
Document editor
File manager comes preinstalled
Samsung Apps brings a few nice apps for free
Battery has increased capacity (1650 mAh) over the original Galaxy S (1500 mAh)

Main disadvantages

Super Clear LCD is somewhat inferior to SuperAMOLED
Camera lacks flash
No dedicated camera key
The all-plastic body is a real fingerprint magnet
Feeble loudspeaker
Increased thickness (10.6mm), height (123.7mm) and weight (131 g) compared to the original Galaxy S (9.9mm, 122.4mm and 119 g)
Less capable GPU compared to the original Galaxy S

Well i would said Galaxy SL is not an upgrade from Galaxy S. is more likely a strip down version or alternate version of Galaxy S. Nevertheless, the Super Clear LCD technology is great. Samsung really never failed consumer with their LCD technology.

* Super Clear LCD easily pawned my BB n Tabbie display *

Honestly, Samsung Galaxy SL really thin and slim eventhough the size was 4 inch. Isn't it easily pawned alot phone out there? However the built might b not solid since it was built by plastic body. Thats what made it pretty light too.

Anyway, will go in depth with Android on my next post ;) so stay tune!

* Having 2 Samsung Android phone on hands now..what my feeling? haha *
