Samsung Galaxy S Series

The Samsung Galaxy S is the first smartphone in the Samsung Galaxy S series. It is a touchscreen-enabled, slate-format Android smartphone that was made, designed, and sold by Samsung Electronics, and it is the first in the series.

It is the first gadget from Samsung’s third Android smartphone series. In the end, the original I9000 model was replaced by the S scLCD or SL device. Production of the previous I9000 model was stopped.

It’s possible to make changes to the layout of buttons and keys, as well as the Android OS on these phones. This is an example of a “derivative model.”

Graphics processing on a phone was faster than on any other phone when the Galaxy S came out. It was also the thinnest at 9.9 mm, and it was the first Android phone to be certified for DivX HD.

Over 25 million Galaxy S units have been sold as of 2013.

With the Snapdragon-based Galaxy S Plus and NovaThor-based Galaxy S Advance phones, the Galaxy S name was kept alive.

Reception

CNET Asia gave the Galaxy S a positive review with an 8.4/10rating. In CNET Asia, the Galaxy S was pitted against existing high-end Android phones, including the HTC Desire, Xperia X10, and Nexus One, as well as smartphones running various operating systems like the iPhone 4, which runs iOS, and the HTC HD2, which runs Windows Mobile.

The Galaxy S has “excellent audio quality,” according to GSMArena.com, which also claims that the phone’s superior all-around performance has made it the “new leader of the Android pack.”

Time ranked the Galaxy S as the second best smartphone of 2010 in their “Top 10 Gadgets” list, praising its Super AMOLED display.

Some reviewers chastised the phone for its poor GPS functionality. Anandtech said in a review of the Epic 4G model that the phone will take an extraordinary amount of time to identify your actual location and/or it won’t pinpoint your location very well.

According to Engadget, the GPS on the Vibrant and Captivate models is “completely damaged and non-functional.” This is a problem for which there is no logical explanation as to how it got to retail devices. ”

Samsung has made an app that resets the phone’s GPS settings to factory settings, but only for the Captivate and Vibrant phones.

TechRadar acknowledged that the Galaxy S had GPS issues, but claimed that these had been fixed in the Google Nexus S.However, there is a remedy that involves opening the case and soldering the antenna connections to the motherboard.

Processor

The Samsung S5PC110 processor was utilized in the Samsung Galaxy S. This processor paired a 45 nm 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 CPU core with an Imagination Technologies PowerVR SGX 540 GPU that supported OpenGL ES 1.1/2.0 and could render up to 20 million triangles per second. Samsung Exynos 3110 was the name given to the dual-core processor.

Memory

The Samsung Galaxy S (Mobile DDR) has 512 MB of LPDDR1 RAM. Some models also include 8 GB or 16 GB of OneNAND memory, which is stacked on top of the processor in a package-on-package stack. Up to 32 GB of extra storage space can be added through an external microSD card slot.

Screen

The Samsung Galaxy S has a 101.6-millimeter (4.00-inch) Super AMOLED touch screen that is protected by Gorilla Glass, a particular crack-and scratch-resistant glass. Samsung made the screen, which is a WVGA PenTile display.

Audio

The phone’s audio hub is the Wolfson WM8994 DAC.

Camera

The Samsung Galaxy S sports a 5-megapixel rear camera with digital zoom rather than optical zoom. It has a 1/3.6″ (rectangle 43 mm) sensor, which is slightly smaller than the 1/2.33″-1/2.5″ sensor found in most digital compact cameras. It also includes a VGA front camera with 0.3 megapixels.

GPS

The GPS module of the Samsung Galaxy “S” was notorious for its poor performance. This was because they used conductive rubber, which made it hard for electricity to flow.

Within the hacking community, modifying the i9000’s hardware to improve its GPS performance was a common thing to do.

The user interface (UI)

The Samsung TouchWiz 3.0 user interface is used on the phone. It supports up to seven homescreens, unlike TouchWiz 3.0 on the Samsung Wave. TouchWiz 3.0, unlike previous Android user interfaces, allows users to create, erase, and rearrange homescreens.

The program launcher differs from other Android user interfaces in that it includes an iOS-style program menu that permits shortcut customization. In addition, three of the four bottom-of-the-screen shortcuts can be changed.

TouchWiz 3.0 is used on the Epic 4G, which is a customised version of TouchWiz. The homescreen needed to be able to rotate into landscape mode due to the Epic 4G’s QWERTY slide-out keyboard. This feature is not available on the other Galaxy S TouchWiz 3.0 smartphones.

The widget interface is the most essential component of all three iterations of TouchWiz. The Daily Briefing, weather clock, and Buddies Now widgets are the most notable widgets included with the Galaxy S. Android widgets can be added and removed from the homescreens, as well as Samsung widgets.

Applications

The Layar Reality Browser, a tool that visualizes GPS direction, and Aldiko, an ebook reader, are among the other programs included. The phone also includes different improved versions of Samsung’s previous generation of smartphones’ software (such as the i8910HD and i8000 Omnia II).
