Samsung Galaxy SL with Android 2.2 Reviewed

The Blue Man @ Nuffnang Malaysia gave me a chance to review this gadget Samsung Galaxy SL I9003. It is different from Samsung Galaxy S I9000 with Super Clear LCD Screen instead of the AMOLED Screen. Initially I mistakenly thought that this is Samsung Galaxy S because they look almost the same.

Samsung Galaxy SL Key Features:
- Super Clear LCD to provide clear visibility in broad daylight
- Longer Battery Life that allows 24/7 connectivity (1650mAh)
- Android 2.2 Froyo
- HD Video Recording with the brightest, vibrant and vivid colors compatible to HD movies
- Great Affordable Prices exclusively with Celcom Exec plans

LinkWell for me Samsung Galaxy SL is flatter but bigger than my Blackberry Bold. It is okay to hold in my hand, but might be too small for a lady to hold it tightly. Love the interface and quick OS thanks to Android Froyo 2.2. My friend played with it and feel that iPhone4 has faster interface~

Really impressed with its LCD Screen when watch Youtube with High Quality (HQ) It is really clear and vibrant. As for the typing, must thanks to the Swype Key + Big Screen for better typing accuracy.

As a photographer I prefer to have a mobile phone with nice camera feature. So far Samsung Galaxy SL camera perform quite well at day time. There is a bunch of mushrooms blooming nearby my housing area just after a rain. The downside of this camera is they dun have flash light. And dun have a camera button at the side.

So if you wanna camwhore, better learn and remember where is the camera button on the screen. Or use their smile detection photo snap function.

Video can be recorded in HD. No auto focus and seems like aperture was fixed. I can't do low light video recording cos there isn't any light assist. It is a phone, so I don't really expect much.

I like the macro photo of this mushroom. Although it looks pixelated with more noise I like its clearity. Remember to snap more photo just in case sometime it doesn't focused on the right spot when you do low level shooting like this. =)

Here is another shoot of the BIG Mushroom =) Mother and son?

Used Samsung Galaxy SL to snap food photo too.So far white balance okay.

I recorded lots of videos easily during my Sepang Gold Coast Trip. This is one of the close up shoot of the Soldier Crabs.

This is my successful attempt of creating a panorama+camwhore photo of Sepang Gold Coast during low tide. It is a bit hard because Samsung Galaxy SL don't have the camara button at the side and I was trying to remember where I should touch the camera button on the screen.

Although you can switch to front camera with lower pixels, I hope that Samsung Galaxy SL will add a camera button on it soon.

Samsung Galaxy SL is not the best phone, but this is one of the best smartphones that you should have now especially when you are a social media evangelist =)
