SAMSUNG Galaxy S (Metallic Black, 16 GB) Price: Rs. 23,190

The Samsung Galaxy S I9000 is an Android 2.2 Froyo smartphone featuring a vivid, super-bright 4.0 Super AMOLED display. The impressive 480 x 800 resolution allows for seamless web navigation in full-width. Complementing the gorgeous display is the phone's HD video recording and playback functions. Despite cramming in so many pixels, the Galaxy S I9000 is incredibly fast thanks to the 1 GHz processor which allows for zero lag zooming, transitions and panning. This Android smartphone is embedded with the PowerVR SGX540 3D graphics engine which allows it to handle CPU intensive applications like HD gaming with ease. The Samsung Galaxy I9000 features the Digital Natural Image engine (DNIe) which greatly enhances the on-screen clarity.

The Samsung phone sports a 5 megapixel camera sensor on the front and a VGA secondary camera on the rear. The I9000 supports HD video recording (720p @ 30 fps). The camera features auto-focus, face recognition, white balance, ISO adjustment, anti-shake, auto-contrast and blink detection, and you can tap on the screen to focus on a particular spot.


The I9000 sports a thin, lightweight rectangularish chassis with a carbon fiber like matte on the rear panel. The handset AMOLED screen sits tad recessed from the edges, protecting it from scratches when kept face down on a surface. The rest of the phone's front is shared between the buttons, a secondary VGA camera, earpiece and the two dot sensors.

The Samsung Galaxy I9000 deviates from the typical Android button arrangement with its home, back and physical menu button combination. Long pressing the menu button pulls up the search function. The I9000's face also houses the accelerometer, light & proximity sensors for auto orientation, light adjustment and auto turn off.

Storage & Battery

This Samsung smartphone comes with 16 GB of in-built memory. The I9000 is powered by a Li-Po 1500 mAh that allows for an impressive 13 hrs of 2G and 6 hours of 3G talktime.

Connectivity & Features

Samsung Galaxy S I9000 supports quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G. You also get Wi-Fi, stereo Bluetooth and a secondary camera. This Android device also comes preloaded with Google Maps navigation app.

The Galaxy S I9000 smartphone sports an enhanced Integrated Contacts feature which brings your SNS contacts and your phonebook into a single platform, allowing you to check status updates and photos directly from your phonebook. You can even integrate Google and Facebook calendars with the in-built calendar.

This Android device supports DivX and XviD video playback, along with 3G (with HSDPA support), USB and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity. The Galaxy S I9000 supports a total of seven home screens, an FM tuner, digital compass with A-GPS.

The 3G smartphone supports Swype typing where you actually draw across the virtual keyboard connecting the letters to form the final word, coupled with Samsungs Predictive text, this allows for extremely fast texting and emailing. Users can gain access to Social Hub, a social network integration platform which pulls in updates from multiple sites into a single feed. The I9000 is preloaded with Thinkfree software that lets you open/edit Microsoft Office 2007 documents on-the-go. The Galaxy I9000 features Samsung's TouchWiz 3.0 UI skinning, those who are comfortable with stock Android UI can revert to it by disabling the Touchwiz skinning.

Samsung Galaxy S I9000 comes preloaded with the Daily Briefing app which delivers everything from the top headlines, stock info, and weather forecast to your schedules and calendar. The S I9000 smartphone features a unique Layar Reality Browser which reveals your surrounding by just clicking a picture, it can reveal addresses, phone numbers and places of interest in your immediate surroundings.

Xda's fame

First in the galaxy line up (Changed Samsung's fortune) .It was the best phone in 2010.Still popular among audiophile ,has excellent audio quality from Wolfson chip.Lack of flash was the only disadvantage.

At the moment it can be updated to kitkat thanks to dev's support from xda.

Flipkart delivered it on time and it was well packed... The product's build quality is excellent. I have been using this phone since 3.5 years now!

Great product, wonderful service

Flipkart rocks in the way the packaged and delivered the beloved Galaxy S ahead of time.

And the past few months that I have been using Galaxy S, it has gone from being lovely to the dearest phone I have had so far. Great features, ample storage (straight out of the box - no SD card pluggin…

The best Android phone you could get for under 20k.

I wanted to write a nice long detailed review, but it probably doesn't make too much sense to do that now, given that the phone is discontinued.

In any case, a lovely phone. A gorgeous screen with scratch-proof glass, it's blazing fast, plenty of memory and nice touches (heh, pun) like Sams…

Galaxy S performance and Flipkart service review

Torn between the HTC Desire and the Galaxy S, I finally ordered the Samsung Galaxy S through Flipkart a while ago and I must say I am very impressed with both the performance of the phone and Flipkart's prompt service.

I ordered the phone on a Friday night and I was able to pick it up from their Bangalore warehouse the very next evening! It came in very nicely packaged and the customer service was very helpful. They even gave me directions on my way to their warehouse!

Coming to the hardware. This is the 16GB version of the Galaxy S and needless to say, I am very happy about it. It included

no date for reviews

can someone tell me why "flipkart" does not date the review? also relevant details such as date of launch of the specific mobile model and no. of handsets sold since listing??? these would help other people to make informed and better judgement when placing order.

The price is better here

Hi, if you ask for the right mobile model you will see that flipkart is selling at a lesser price than the market rate. Ask for the price of i9000 Galaxy...there are other versions of Galaxy too hence their price could be lower!! no other phone is as comprehensive as the Samsung i9000 Galaxy. not even the iPhone4..yes its true.

clarifying Samsung galaxy price confusion

the price confusions
galaxy has 5 models(perhaps more) available right now,
galaxy 3
galaxy 5
galaxy spica
galaxy i7500

and this one i.e, galaxy s or galaxy i9000,
other phones are the budgeted version of this one, with smaller specification, this one is considered the god phone rivaled only by HTC desire, so if someone is willing to go for small form factor other phones although this one justifies it's price

although lower priced

Stands Out

After months of pondering and coming to terms with the right budget for the phone I was going to buy, there came the "give or take" fantasy which really pushed me towards considering Galaxy S2 over "Galaxy S" but trust me "Galaxy S" has not failed me.

On the looks of it, one doesn't need to pay a premium of Rs. 10000 for super amoled Plus when you have super amoled. Secondly the 5 megapixel camera is just as fine unless you are planning to give in your friend, going on and on about his normal phone having a 8 MP camera (trust me!!! it happens)

As far as the battery is concerned, if you are

Samsung galaxy s price confusion

Dear friend,
There may be some confusion regarding the price of samsung galaxy s as there are 4 models of samsung galaxy available in market. All models are android based smart phones. But Samsung galaxy s bosses a 4" Super AMOLED screen and is powered by the latest Android os 2.1
Ideal price is between 27800 to 28500. So price is offered by flipkart if not amazing is still good keeping in view that they provide free delivery and good service.

Amazing Delivery Process

On Flipkart:
2 WoWs to flipkart for their amazing customer service and delivery process.

On Phone:
The phone is awesome. It just has everything you need. One thing i am not sure is that if the phone has gorilla glass? It does not say in the specs or in the carton, but in many websites they say that all Galaxy S phones ship with gorilla glass. Can anybody confirm?

Samsung Galaxy S and Flipkart

Amazing product. Full stop. I am going talk about Flipkart more than my Galaxy. This was my first time experience with Flipkart and I loved it. This site would make Anna Hazare proud!
I bought this phone for 21k and couple of days after that they slashed the price. To my surprise they were kind enough to credit the difference in amount to my account. Way to go Flipkart!
